The artwork and sound is awesome, that App Unwrapper video playthrough that comes after the preview really seals the deal.

Glad you enjoyed it!
Not sure why the game released early, whether it was intentional. I did notice the leaderboards got wiped and I can only see my name. If anyone else is playing, are you seeing anything besides your own name?

And here's my video for anyone else who was curious:

Great little game with some good mechanics making this standout from the match 3 norm.
Recommend you watch appunwrappers YouTube video for the gameplay.
Also, I'm only seeing my name on the leaderboard as well.

I've been waiting for this gem for a while. Nice game to wake up to for sure.

It's fun for a few minutes.... but a bit shallow. Beat it and now I have no desire to go back and grab coins to chase the high score

It doesn't feel shallow to me at all. But I agree that I don't think the high-score chasing aspect of it will keep me with it long term. An endless mode might have, with the goal to get farther than anyone else.

This mashes up two of my favorite game types the roguelike and the match 3, awesome idea developers!
