To add a level of authenticity to the appearance of the game, 5th Planet Games has teamed up with Moulinsart, the company behind Tintin, to ensure the sprites and user interface all suit the IP. Meanwhile, 5th Planet Games themselves also have a solid background in this particular genre with Moritz Voss, who previously worked at King who have made several match-3 games over the years, heading up the project. 

Nick Rodwell, Managing Director of Moulinsart, discussed the collaboration, he said: “We’re very excited about this opportunity to introduce Tintin to mobile gamers around the world. To let players take on the role of the detective and solve puzzles and mysteries on their own, through a fun and familiar game mechanic, is a great way to expand the Tintin universe.

He added: “We very much hope that it will be a huge hit among fans of both Tintin and puzzle games throughout the world”.

Tintin Match is available now over on the App Store and Google Play. It's a free-to-play game with in-app purchases.
