Default Tomb Breaker [Universal]




Low bandwidth Version | Pop Up


Worked a whole year on this game, just me and an artist. Wanted to try and bring a new match game to touch devices, one that makes you use your brain in new ways. Hope you'll give it a try Working on the next update so leave some feedback/suggestions if you can.

Also, featured in New & Noteworthy, and an Android version is a few weeks away.

Quite like this. It's a different twist on the gem matching genre. There's a nice risk-reward balance between taking the easy matches and trying to set up "crossovers" where your line connecting the gems passes through itself. Just got my first double crossover!

Would be nice if you could go back over your line to undo/cancel it, and I'd love to see at least an endless mode (it currently only has a 60-second Blitz-style mode) but well worth a try.

Thanks, best game impression yet was Bejeweled meets Tetris, which I thought was pretty accurate. working on an update as we speak, and I'll be adding the ability to go back and change your path, that's been highly requested.

Appreciate the feedback, hoping to keep adding more and more to it

How about a longer play option? One minute is just long enough to start enjoying the game and then it's over. I love the concept, but it's not satisfying to me to have such a short, unchangeable limit.

You got it, I'm adding an unlimited time competitive mode and designed puzzles. Also adding in the ability to back trace, so if you want to change your move you can, also adding new special tiles that happen when you make longer chains. Finally, allowing crossovers to occur over tiles, currently you can only get a crossover when you cross beams. Also some other ui fixes and polish

Workin as hard as I can on it, so pumped people are asking for more, took a year to fully build the mechanic, game scoring, etc. had no idea people wanted to play versions with more time, lol. Certainly get it now

Thanks agin for feedback and support, if you have other suggestions I'll add em to the list.

Sounds great, I'll buy something to support your efforts. This is the best matching game since " BeGhouled".
