This looks unusual, so I will give it a try!

And there are only 27 Match-3 games currently installed on my iPhone. There's always room for more.

LOL, that's exactly how I feel!

This is a really neat little match-3 game. It's slower and thinky-er than most, even with the timer counting down for each level. You need to rotate rings to line up properly in the pincers, to match a 3-gem code on the side, so your aliens can transport away to safety, one by one. At the same time, there's a score multiplier bar you can fill up, with a different colored gem match. So often it's a race against time and a tough choice: do you match-3 quickly to transport the aliens, or do you take some time to fill up the multiplier bar before doing the other matches? All the time the clock is ticking down.

I like it! It's nicely different! And the graphics are crisp and bright on my new iPad 3rd gen too.

Default Glad to see

Glad to see someone else took this idea and ran with it. My company made a game with similar match-3 mechanics on the iPad almost 2 years ago, but it had some different kinds of visuals.
