The idea is that you connect cards to make a poker hand in a grid fashion, and new cards drop down as the connected ones disappear.

The core gameplay is broken down into three game modes (Classic, Arcade and Infinite). I recommend Arcade for a quick high score round, which also introduces elements like freeze-time and explosions.

Game Impressions

Thanks for the promo!

The game is pretty cute and straight forward. I think my only wish at this point would be to see the points I just earned with the text of the type of hand scored. So as opposed to just, "A Pair!" flying by, how about adding a smaller fonted line underneath with "+100"?

It clearly is Poker Squares meets match 3 with some power-ups to further mix stuff up! Good fun if a fan of match 3 or poker solitaire like games already.

Something I kind of think keeps stuff interesting is how, since these hands can be from 2-5 cards, there is no deadwood allowed! Sure those 4 kings are fairly close together but unless you can connect them all directly, there is no throwing in an extra jack just make a 5 card hand that connects them all.

4/5
