App description: Take yourself to the days of retro when people faced @ SLUSHIE BRAIN FREEZES @ with courage and talking to your TV made men in white coats appear to take you away.

Play @ MATCHWORKS @ and show who you really are because at Matchworks, we know that pause buttons are for Wusses and high scores are for winners.

@@> Exciting! Edge of your seat! Fast! Shoot! Not for weaklings! <@@

A mesmerizing, calming, zen-like retro experience that quickly evolves into a devilishly challenging puzzler.
Meditation + Panic. It's a fantastic combo.

A very simple game that will challenge you to think very fast.

"It's an impressive game. The idea is good. The game takes me remember about the old gameboy which I played. It's a colourful game" ~ Andre, TouchArcade.

Features:
- Simple rules
- Intuitive gameplay
- Difficult to master
- 3 lives!
- Beautiful, colorful, minimalist design.
- Sound inspired by Genesis
- GFX inspired by ZX Spectrum

How to Play:

The gameplay is simple.

- Don't let your timer run out or, you'll lose a life. You have three.

Super simple, surprisingly challenging.

Though the ZX Spectrum is way beyond my generation, I just showed your demo video to a friend of mine who had a ZX Spectrum when he was a kid. He totally digs it and says that the game truly looks like a typical ZX Spectrum game. He said even the typography looks very similar.

Pretty basic but solid Match-3. I'm unsure how scoring/Game Center works. The game doesn't seem to save my local scores and my scores don't show on GC. Anyone else with this issue?

Thanks Guise. Actually I can see you at the top of the chart.


Besides the retro theme, we also tried to implement a small twist.
As you advance levels, you have less time to make a move. If you run out of time, besides losing a life, you also lose some points and, the board is completely scrambled. That makes exponentially more difficult to advance when you reach upper levels.

To access game center, you must touch the red heart (lower left) and then choose "Global High Scores". There you'll also find another leaderboard called: Cascade.

Cascades means how many automatic matches you triggered by a certain move. Your highest cascade # on a game is the upper left number. The upper right shows the last cascade sequence. You're ranking #2 on cascades.

*PS* Have you reviewed the game already? If not, could you?
