Boonka Snap is a highly addictive and challenging puzzle game with a twist that takes full advantage of the iPhone's accelerometer and touch features.

Make matches with Boonkas, the tiny but powerful nature spirits, with a single flick of your wrist. You will send them into the roots of the trees where they work their mysterious magic, but watch out for a certain group of evil enemies… they will try to stop you any way they can!

It's a bit more than a Match-3, but if we told you how then we might be spoiling the fun Try it out!

ok, i already played a bit.

this is a match 3 game - slot machine style. instead of swapping or sliding blocks to form a match, the 5 columns continuously move (some up, some down; some faster than the others) and you either have to shake or tap to stop the motion and hope it makes a match (3 boonkas / blocks or more). if you match 5, you get a powerup: a boonka becomes a bomb and if you match it, it destroys nearby boonkas as well.

it has two modes: normal game and just relax. normal game mode is ok, kept me on my toes. if you fail to make a match after a certain number of moves, you get a skour. if you match 3 skours, game over.

just relax mode, well, it made me sleepy.

1. how do you die in just relax mode? and no pause button! my score is 500000+, my eyes are drooping, i really wanted to get a can of soda and the game just kept on going. i was forced to hit the home button just to quit the game. and, when i returned to the game, it was not saved! my score is back to 0.

2. please have an in-game option to turn off the sounds. i have an iphone and i prefer not to mute it in case i forget about it later.

3. missing global leaderboards. right now, you can save up to 5 local highscores (only for normal mode) with no options to input a name.

4. how do you get a "germinate?" you get a "wow" if you get 6 or more consecutive matches with just one tap.

5. you get a "croshka" match when you match same type of boonkas from end to end. are there other matches that i can make?

6. 4&5 will mean more to me if there's some sort of achievements board: made a croshka, 500 wows, etc.
