Smiles or Bomboozle?

Or does anyone else have any other recommendations of their favorite Match-3 game? Any suggestions would definitely help me out. Thanks.

Also, if you have Smiles (2 in 1), which mode do you play in more--Zen or Drop?

Smiles is a decent game. I haven't tried Bomboozle yet. Out of all the match 3 games I've bought so far (alot) I like Treasures of Montezuma the best.

Thanks freedog, but isn't Treasures of Montezuma just essentially Bejeweled? Or are there any nuances that liberates itself from Bejeweled? If so could you please elaborate. Thank you.

Smiles is amazing. Just get the whole thing. I think there is also a lite version.

Bejeweled is good but I think its much more basic than Treasures of Montezuma. ToM has some really cool sound and visual effects, and the gameplay is not boring or basic. Plenty of creative powerups and fastpaced gameplay, especially when you get to the later levels.

I've decided to go with ToM. I dled the Smiles and Bomboozle Lite versions of the games and my first impressions of Bomboozle were that it was too simple and monotonous for my taste. Although, I did enjoy Smiles much more, it still seemed to be lacking some 'punch' in the game. I guess I enjoy the challenge of racing the clock in ToM and having the ability to actually lose...something that lacked in Smiles. However, Smiles is not at all a bad game and is definitely a great 'pick up and play' game with great replay value--it's just something that I'm not looking for at the moment. It may be my next purchase after ToM. Thanks to all that helped.

One more that you may wanna check out is Match 3d Flick Puzzle. Good game too and there's a lite version available in the store to try.

Besides the horrible music, this game is a blast. Really something new.
