WOAH... wtf?

This looks fantastic. After a brilliant explained tutorial, a retro-music and retro-graphics gem is awaiting you, a mixture of Tiny Town and Match-3 elements, a deep strategic Match-3 with tactical RPG combat sequences is awaiting you. This is really unique and new. This looks and feels like a gem like 10000000.
Puzzle fans shouldn't miss this!!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I'm likely to buy it on all of your recommendations alone, but short of doing so, based on the description and screenshots I can't quite tell what sort of game this is.

Social Games: Pocket Mine 2, Terra Battle, FF Record Keeper, PAD

Guess I'll probably buy this. All the big games, deep games, etc. I never end up playing. Partly due to the small screen size. This is embarrassing but I probably play Homerun Battle 2 more than anything else. :dodges rocks:

I saw this early this morning, but didn't know if it was a good game or someone just had access to clean pixel-art.

Be careful. Pixels are being overworked and underpaid. It won't be long before they unionize and go on strike. How many games do they have work in a single shift these days?
