Match Tiles. Cast Spells. Conquer Evil.

Spellfall is a unique tile-matching puzzle game where you cast magical spells to defeat evil monsters. Along the way, you'll master new spells, grow more powerful and acquire new equipment to aid in your fight.

Evil has met its match!

Match 3+ Spell Tiles

Each monster match-up includes an increasingly challenging tile puzzle board. Match three fire tiles to cast a fire spell. Match three water tiles to conjure a water spell. Line up four or more matching tiles to inflict even mightier damage.

Is this drawing match three or rotate? I actually am terrible at rotating match 3.

It's actually neither - you pick up any tile you want and drop it anywhere to make a match of three or more. It's very simple to play but the game itself looks to be quite enjoyable so far. It's very odd that Backflip are soft launching several games at once in different regions but the three I've played have all been pretty good, so I'm not complaining!

Pretty neat. Although it's a match - 3 type game. It's different than others. Only played a few matches but Im enjoying it!

This is pretty good so far. There's no energy, but your hit points don't automatically refill after each match and you can spend coins (earned through play) to refill it between stages or just wait. This isn't too bad of a setup, though, as you get a healing spell during the tutorial that you can use during play.

Some of the lame iap stuff is there, of course, like paying $0.99 to revive if you die in combat (but you still get exp and stuff if you decide to stay dead). There is a 20 day login bonus of a free weapon, but if you don't feel like waiting you can just buy it for $79.99 ( L O L !!! ).

But so far the game seems pretty friendly to free players. None of the iap I've come across seems necessary at all. Who knows if, or what kind of, paywalls will pop up as one gets further in, so we'll just have to see.

As for the game play itself, it's pretty cool. It's a match three, kind of puzzle quest-ish in the spell casting, and nice animations to everything. Liking it so far.

109 (that's the highest IAP price tag I've ever seen!) for one single item while the other ones are around 70 each. Ridiculous!
Didn't expected this kind of an cash grab from Backflip Studios. Besides that, the game itself feels very polished.
