App description: Unleash the orbs and light the fire in Sparkle Unleashed!

A hidden world of mystery has succumbed to an ominous darkness. Now you must make your way through the fallen lands, light magical braziers and discover a way to banish the darkness once and for all.

Unlock potent powerups and use the ones you like the most to overcome Chained Orbs, Rock Orbs, Survival levels and other exciting challenges. Can you carve a path of light through the darkness?

Sparkle Unleashed introduces floating Orb Slinger gameplay never before seen in a Sparkle series game. The unleashed Orb Slinger floats along the bottom of the screen providing a new kind of action puzzle experience.

- Ultra-polished match-three marble shooter gameplay
- Chained Orbs, Rock Orbs and more all new challenges
- An arsenal of 18 potent powerups to choose from
- Immersive soundtrack by award-winning composer Jonathan Geer
- Try & Buy: Play the first 23 levels for free, pay once to unlock Full Game
- Full game includes 108 challenging levels, Survival mode and two more difficulty settings

Sparkle Unleashed is a Try & Buy game. The first 23 levels of the game are free, and you may replay them as much as you wish. Progressing further into the game requires a one time payment, which unlocks all content permanently. There are no other in-game purchases in Sparkle Unleashed.

Woah, I love the Sparkle series! What is different about this one compared to the first 2?

Edit: Oh, so the shooter is a slider at the bottom of the screen similar to the Luxor series? I can get on board with that When is the US release? 10tons is always a day-one purchase from me...

The game will be launched globally in April. The exact date is still a bit hazy, but April 17th is a good bet. Give or take a week

All right, here we go! Sparkle Unleashed is now out globally, and it's FREE!*

* free as in a Try & Buy game. The first 23 levels are free, you can replay them as much as you like, and a single IAP unlocks the full game. And that means 108 levels, two additional difficulty settings for the Story Mode, and a Survival Mode.

The game is overall more challenging than Sparkle 2's default Story Mode difficulty.

Any and all comments would be much welcomed!

Does this have the levels from the first 2 games or is it all new levels?

The levels are all new, and they really have to be. In Sparkle Unleashed, the Orb Slinger slides along the bottom of the screen, so there can't be any Orb tracks within that space. And the track designs work obviously a little different when the Slinger isn't fixed to one location.

Any comments on the game? The game's been downloaded a lot, thanks to App Store feature slots

I am enjoying the game and bought the full version. My one complaint is that I am used to the faster orb shooting power from sparkle 2 so this is feeling a bit slow to me. It is still a great game besides that though!
