Dungeon Mode:
Dungeon Mode: Buy the entrance ticket to get into Dungeon . You can explore this kingdom by visiting as many rooms as you can, having fun sliding and tapping creatures on your way, taking an adventure to the unknown rooms, using stairs to change location, and collecting coins to buy useful items which can help you go further!

Features:

- Wonderful clean graphics.
- Mysterious creatures figures.
- Special elements (merchant, traps, treasure, thieves...)

Hi everyone,

We are 2-person indie game studio Psychizen. Covert Kingdom is our first game, it's inspired by Tetris, UNO and Roguelike.

We know you've played many match-3 games, but we are sure Covert Kingdom will bring you something new, something different!

Players need to switch the mind between shape recognition and color recognition under pressing time.

The most exciting part in Covert Kingdom is the endless auto-generated Dungeon, you can find varied elements in it, such as Loot, Boss, Merchant, Trap, Thief etc.

As a freemium game, the ads won't pop up to scare you. We think immersion is very important in games.

We have great fun in developing and playing Covert Kingdom, hope the players enjoy it as much as we do.

Unlike most match3 game, it's little bit hard at the very beginning.

Players can match both the same color and the same shape. It depends on what they are convenient with, switching the mind between shape recognition and color recognition under pressing time.

The new playing rules seems add the difficulties. People feel in a puzzle when they have more choices! lol

Yes, it's totally free! And enjoy the new way of playing the match 3 game. There always has lots of fun in this "old style game" You can't avoid to die at the end of each time, but it will keep on challenging yourself to achieve higher scores.

The graphic is clutter. I don't think that I'll come back to the game after putting it down.

I like this match 3. I have only played the Classic mode so far and I look forward to unlocking the Dungeon mode.

I appreciate that IAP purchases remove the ads (which are not obtrusive). The game does not show what the actual IAP costs are.

I also asked our programmer why we don't show the actual IAP costs on the button. He said, we are tiny studio, not many people will download it, and it's easy for us just put "Buy" there. Lol~~

However, the actual cost will show after you press "Buy". Covert Kingdom is our first game, we put IAP inside just for practicing how to make it.

As the graphic designer, my heart is breaking!

I begin to learn the graphic design in 2012 on my own. Before that I was an adventure travel consultant in China for 5 years.

I love the words " Be the change you want to see in the world", that encourages me to make better artwork.

Hope you will like the artwork in my next game. Thanks for your comments on this.

Below is evolution how I design one monster in COVERT KINGDOM

It seems that with iOS 7, you no longer see what an iap costs until after you enter your password. It will then ask again if you are sure you want to buy the iap and show a cost. No idea why Apple decided to start doing that, but there you go.

As for the game itself, I'm reluctant to try it. Yes, it's free, but I'm leery of free match games with iap structures and iads. They tend to be draconian in the implementation of their paywall, like Candy Crush Saga.
