App description: You have one objective: Blow up as much stuff as possible.

In Lyst Ignition, mix matter to create powerful explosions. Or combine the same colors to compact basic matter for larger combos and greater point gains. But move fast. The clock is always ticking and an Ignition zone is waiting for you to slip up just to ruin your day.

You'll have a few tools at your disposal. Catalysts can be utilized to create larger explosions, persistent vacuums, or even freeze matter in place, giving you a handful of strategic options for generating the most destruction possible. Use powerups like Razor to create additional matter, or deploy Mine which detonates automatically. And setting an explosive chain reaction is only a tap away.

Earn beakers over time to invest in powerful experiments to further enhance your performance. Each tier offers a unique choice. Will you take Byproduct to produce critical matter after an explosion or choose Void Pulse to slowly attract matter instead?

Lyst Ignition will test both your dexterity and your on-the-fly decision making. You're up to the challenge. It's time to move past traditional match-three gameplay and start mixing volatile chemicals instead.

It's like chemistry, without setting your hair on fire.

Game Impressions

This game.... this game just got me into a fight with my girlfriend because I was ignoring her full time...

it's that good.


This is a high score game, meaning all you do is play for high scores.

The point of the game is to combine the different colored orbs in order to explode or hold the grey orbs(matter).

Blue+Blue or Orange+Orange will hold Grey/White matter in place and B+O will explode Grey/White Matter.

Using the various power ups like freeze, strengthen and continuous you need to start thinking about what you want to do...
Do I explode these small groups? Do I hold em up a bit so more matter will cluster up and use that Strengthen power up to create a big explosion and take em all out? Or do i use the Strengthen to hold even more matter in a bigger area so i can use the Slice power up and duplicate all that matter so I can finally use Chain Reaction to blow everything up?

It features 2 modes... Classic and Ignition(which I didn't fully understand). After set number of points are gained, you get Beakers which are used for Experiments(upgrades). After lengthy play time, Experiments will change the way how you play Be it by letting you get Hot Streaks easier or getting more points by the end of you Hot Streak. You could also pick between creating more basic matter after an explosion or creating a vacuum that will hold matter into place after an explosion.


Nice sounds, straightforward and easy to follow tutorials, great gameplay all for 99 cents.

ANYONE looking for a high scoring game that involves using your brain and your skills, not just random power ups... Should definitely check this game out.

This has gotta be one of the most interesting "Match 3" type games I've ever played next to Monsters Ate My Condo and honestly, I'd really like to review the game in as much detail as possible. The problem is, I'd be here for a few hours if I tried to do so. Instead let me try to make this as brief as possible.

What you're getting here is a unique look into a genre that has become so crowded over the last few years. I have not played a Match 3 game that is so well thought-out before. Steel Games obviously knew exactly what they were doing behind every power-up and every experiment and just reading through and playing the tutorial can be somewhat overwhelming at first. The thing is, just mere minutes into the game, it all starts making sense and you'll start playing like a pro; mixing matter to create explosions, setting off chain reactions, freezing matter and creating vacuums all over your screen while you frantically try to beat the clock.

Accompanying this gameplay are retina graphics, simple polished menus, and some of the most fitting music I've heard in a game in quite some time. You're not getting a happy-go-lucky game here. What you're getting instead is a dark, brooding, atmospheric experience, set along to what I can best describe as some kind of industrial metal meets goth rock tracks. The game as a whole feels like one mind-numbing chemistry experiment set by a maniacal genius in a damp, dark room. I'm not sure if that's what the developers intended it to feel like, but hey...I'm weird like that.

If you're a Match 3 fan looking for something other than pretty colorful blocks that fart out rainbows and enjoy something a little smart, moody and dark, this is a very easy recommendation.
