Ahead of the May 10th release of "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End" on the PlayStation 4, Sony has revealed an all-new puzzle game for Android and iOS devices, reports Engadget

The mobile title named "Uncharted: Fortune Hunter" has a colorful and cartoonish art style and some interesting puzzle gameplay mechanics. The game gives players a new perspective from which to control Naughty Dog's iconic hero, Nathan Drake. Much like "Hitman Go" and "Lara Croft Go" from publisher Square Enix, "Uncharted: Fortune Hunter" puts Drake on a grid-based puzzle environment with lots of deadly pathways and task for each player to overcome.

Players are given a number of turns that will be used to complete a quest. Clearing a puzzle earns coins and treasures and if you do so in less moves than prescribed players are given a loot key that can be used to open chest found by Drake's older mentor Victor "Sully" Sullivan. New chests appear over time, but players can pay to speed up the clock or get more gold coins.

Furthermore, the mobile game will have a connection to the forthcoming console title. "Fortune Hunter" will reward players with multiplayer perks for "Uncharted 4: A Thief's End." As Kotaku reports if you link a Sony Entertainment Network account to "Uncharted: Fortune Hunter," you’ll be able to unlock specific outfits, weapon skins and other goodies for use in "Uncharted 4’s" multiplayer mode. Aside from different skins, users will get relics and one-time-use boosters. Though the rewards are small, they are useful for those gamers who want to look good or grab an edge on other players online.

"Uncharted: Fortune Hunter" is available on Android and iOS devices. The title is free and offers in-app purchases.
