Game Impressions

Cute and basic fun in the form of speed tile matching, sort of like the ol' tile matching mahjong but you make matches in triplets and can play around a bit with the order of your tappings...

1) You have a tray that holds 8 tiles.
2) Any tile you tap goes into your tray.
3) All tiles that enter your tray are automatically sorted by color and once you have EXACTLY 3 matching tiles of one of one color, those 3 tiles disappear and you score some points.
4) If you happen to tap on too many unmatched tiles so as to clog up the tray with no way to form a group of three matching tiles from the available tiles on the board, the game ends the second you add that 8th tile and it isn't immediately part of an existing set.

The key to big points, since a grouping can NEVER be more than 3, is to simply match as many triplets as fast as possible for an escalating speed combo bonus...but be careful, if in your haste you end up tapping on 4 red pieces, that 4th piece will now sit on the tray clogging stuff up until you find it two more partners. So always be mindful of what you put on the tray and make sure you can match it off quickly or letting it clog the flow up a bit is worth it if it is blocking your access to many other tiles underneath.

While the game is free, there is always a catch. What is free is the first 15 levels of some 60 levels total. Also the game starts you with 20 of each of its 2 power-ups (an undo and auto-matcher) with all additional uses needing to be bought via IAP.

I think charging $0.99 for the rest of the levels is more than fair, but DO NOT condone any game with IAP purchaseable ONLY power-ups. Sure I don't expect you to just give them away, but allow the player some way to slowly earn them within game at least.

3.5/5

As I said I like the game but dislike ONLY being able to get the power-ups via IAP, charging $0.99 for the rest of the levels is a more than fair price.

Via achievement might be nice but hopefully it will be a repeatable achievement and not something only good once.
