Doctor Who Joins Funko Pop! Blitz Smartphone Game

The Doctor has always been a bit of a bighead; now, five incarnations are taking that literally by being integrated into the smartphone app, Funko Pop! Blitz.

The TARDIS is scattered across Funko Pop! Blitz’s game boards, and the Doctors need your help to collect it so they can get back to exploring the universe. The game now features the Thirteenth Doctor, Twelfth Doctor, Eleventh Doctor, Tenth Doctor, and Ninth Doctor, as respectively played on screen by Jodie Whittaker, Peter Capaldi, Matt Smith, David Tennant, and Christopher Eccleston.

Funko Pop! Blitz is a match-3 puzzle game featuring the Funko Pop versions of characters across multiple iconic franchises. Each week, Funko Pop! Blitz celebrates pop culture with a new collection of digital Funko Pops. These characters all come with their own unique Super move to blast the board and power up, earning rewards. Super moves typically celebrate an iconic moment from the media the character hails from.

With Doctors past and present, you can expect to see Supers involving the sonic screwdriver, and nanogene healing, while the Eleventh Doctor comes with his mop and fez, as seen in The Big Bang, while the Tenth has his hand, cut off by the Sycorax on Christmas Day and used to create the Metacrisis Doctor incarnation.

The TARDIS will also be making appearances on every game board.

The aim of each Funko Pop! Blitz game during the week of March 18th (midnight UTC) to March 24th (similarly midnight UTC) will be to drop as many TARDIS tiles as you can to the bottom of the board, so as to help the Doctors explore the universe again. Each TARDIS collected will inch you further along to completion of the Doctor Who event collection, which is important, because you’ll only be able to procure the Eleventh Doctor With Fez and Mop by doing so.

If all this confuses you a little… well, you’re not the only one. The best thing to do is get give it a go, and all should become clear.

Funko Pop! Blitz is available now on the App Store for iPhone and iPad and on Google Play for Android devices.
