Omni Stones - Match 3

Omini Stones is a brilliant and exciting twist on the classic swap-and-match puzzle genre. It’s as simple and fun to play as the match-three classics, with a level of depth and strategy that will challenge even the most seasoned puzzlers. Part puzzle, part strategy, all fun!

“The best way to describe Omini Stones is that it is as fun and addictive as Bejeweled, yet challenging enough to make me stop and think every now and then - as if I was solving a Sudoku puzzle.” – Paul Fabian

Omini Stones’ fresh gameplay approach seamlessly blends moments of frantic mixing and matching with periods of intense concentration and strategy where every move counts. You’ll face logical brainteasers that leave you “scratching your head” pondering a creative solution – play smart and win! Are you up for the challenge?

Features:
• 4 Game Modes - Enjoy four exciting game modes with unique challenges and rewards.
• Balanced Gameplay – Each level is a perfect balance between fast-paced matching and strategic problem solving.
• Gravity Tilting – You define which direction is down. The orientation you hold your device affects the direction that stones fall. Mastery of this feature is an integral part of the game experience and necessary to clear all challenging levels.
• Cool Combos – The combo system rewards planning, strategy, and thinking ahead. Making one match is simple, but getting a combo of three or more matches requires patience and scores big points!
• Challenging Obstacles - Conquer Omini Bombs and xStones on your way to becoming an Omini master.
• Achievements - Collect all 11 achievements as you progress through the four exciting game modes.
• Unlimited Replay - Levels are randomly generated and provide unique challenges every time you play.
• Secrets – Omini masters will discover and unlock game secrets to extend their gaming experience.
• Bonus Features – Game save, entrancing soundtrack, exclusive graphics, and high scores.

Designed specifically for the iPhone and iPod touch, Omini Stones is a blend of action and addictive puzzle-fun with endless ways to win!

It's not a match 3 alike game.

You combine 2 colors (no matter what the shapes are) to create an Omini. If you create 2 or more Ominis of the same color and next to each other then they will disappear. An Omini may carry a bomb and each additional move decreases its countdown. If you can't eliminate it the game is over.

Tilt is very important here because when you create a ghost new tiles will follow the iPhone orientation and here lies your chances to advance more than anything else in the game.

It's a puzzle.

I agree, but upon first glance it has very similar attributes to a match 3 game. It wasnt until after I played it did I find out it was not. By that time the thread had come and gone to oblivion, or so I thought apparently. The game is pretty fun, but it does not pull you in like some games. It is worth a dollar though.
