Update: Due to several adjustments that were introduced in R134, players will need to re-download character assets in-game. We apologize for the inconvenience, but rest assured that once assets for each character are re-downloaded, they won't need to be downloaded again.

Hi Everyone,

Here are the Release Notes for the R134 update!

MPQ 134!

His teleport is worse than his bite! Lockjaw is coming soon to Marvel Puzzle Quest.

What's Changed:
  • A brand new Special tile called the Repeater tile has been introduced into the game. They behave similarly to Countdown tiles, in that they countdown each turn, but differ in that they return to the base number instead of being destroyed. Powers that specifically target Countdown tiles will not target Repeater tiles (unless specifically stated). The following powers now create Repeater tiles instead of Countdown tiles:
    • Human Torch (Johnny Storm) - Flame Jet
    • Human Torch (Classic) - Flame Jet
    • Black Panther (T’Challa) - Defense Grid
    • The Punisher (Dark Reign) - Molotov Cocktail
    • Blade (Daywalker) - Nightstalker
    • Ghost Rider (Johnny Blaze) - Hellfire
    • Rocket & Groot (Awesome Mix Volume 2) - Rocket’s Pack


Previously, these powers had used Countdown tiles with short countdowns that replaced themselves when they went off. This was awkward to explain, hard for new players to understand, led to some subtle bugs, and limited our ability to create certain kinds of powers that interact with Countdown tiles.

  • The character with the highest health will now stay in front in situations where multiple characters have an active power that moves them to the front.
  • Powers that stun a random character will now increase their stunned turn duration if the character was already stunned. This fixes a bug where if a new stun had a longer duration than the current stun effect, it wouldn't set the current stun duration to the stun duration of the power just cast. *New Update*
  • When a player has two of the same character at the same level, the character that was selected last time will be selected by default the time the player enters the Character Select screen.
  • STEAM Only: Selecting the empty space above the back arrow in the Recruit Heroes screen will no longer take you to the Resources screen.
