App description: Dual Match 3 is a match 3 puzzle game in which players try to get a high score by connecting 3 or more balls of the same color and number.
When 3 or more balls of the same color and number are connected, the points on the balls are multiplied by 10.
Players can boost their score by connecting multiple combos, in which case the combo points are multiplied by the number of combos hit so far (e.g. on the third combo, the points are multiplied by 3).
The player can connect balls freely: vertically, horizontally, or diagonally.
Although the rules are simplejust connect 3 or more balls of the same color and numberDual Match 3 is unique in that scores vary greatly depending on the connection path.

In Hard Mode, cubes containing the total number of points from connected balls appear in the position where the finger is removed.
When 3 or more cubes of the same color are connected, you win the points and the cubes are removed.
The level finishes when all color targets are cleared within the given number of moves.
When you level up, bonus points are added based on the number of remaining moves, so you can boost your score by completing the level in fewer moves.
At the end of the game, players receive coins according to the number of levels completed. These coins can be exchanged for items during the game.
There are three items:
Item 1: Tap a ball to remove it
Item 2: Add two moves
Item 3: Display a hint (reveals a high-scoring path)
You can use items multiple times during a game, but the number of coins consumed doubles with each use.

Dual Match 3 is optimized for the iPhone X.

You can share in-game videos via SNS by pressing the record button during the game.
You can also post your game results or best move to SNS.
When you select a ball, it becomes hidden behind your finger, so the game uses haptic feedback to tell you when a ball is selected.
People who cannot see differences in color can play using patterns with the Colorblind option.
There are three different color themes:
1. White
2. Dark blue
3. Gray

Dual Match 3 is optimized for iPhone X.

Takashi Iyoda's comments:


December 6, 2017, Nagoya-based developer Iyoda will release Dual Match 3 for iOS.
Dual Match 3 is a simple match 3 puzzle game with a deep complex edge, optimized for iPhone X.

Iyoda is an indie game developer from Japan. His previous game Dungeon Tiles was chosen as Apple TV Games Best of 2016 (Japan) and won first prize in AppLovins Apple TV App Challenge.

Iyoda developed Dual Match 3 with the intention of keeping the rules simple, so that light users with less gaming experience could also enjoy the game, while also incorporating a deeper, more complex edge.
Dual Match 3 is a match 3 puzzle game with simple rules. All players have to do is connect 3 or more balls of the same color and number. However, the balls can also be connected diagonally, which opens up more connection paths.
Since scores vary greatly depending on the connection path, players get much better scores as they improve, allowing them to continue playing without getting bored.

[Features]
1. Two play modes
Normal Mode:
When you connect 3 or more balls of the same color, the total number of points on the balls is added to your score. Connecting 3 or more balls of the same color and number scores a combo, and the points on the balls are multiplied by 10. The points are also multiplied by the number of combos. The level is complete when all color targets are cleared within the given number of moves.

Hard Mode:
The basic rules are the same as Normal Mode, but when you connect 3 or more balls of the same color, a cube containing the total number of points appears, then the cubes can be removed by connecting 3 or more cubes of the same color. The cubes act as obstacles, making the game more difficult, but you can also score highly by removing the cubes.

2. Three items
You can exchange the coins that you receive at the end of the game for the following items:
Tap a ball to remove it
Add two moves
Display a hint (reveals a high-scoring path)

3. You can share your replay videos via SNS

4. You can upload a shot of your highest-scoring move (Best Move)

5. Colorblind Mode

6. Three themes (White, Dark blue, Gray)

Thank you for playing Dual Match 3. Sorry that the scoring system is complicated. You will get total of ball points by connecting 3 or more balls of the same color.
When 3 or more balls of the same color and number are connected (combo), the points on the balls are multiplied by 10. You can boost their score by connecting multiple combos, in which case the combo points are multiplied by the number of combos hit so far (e.g. on the third combo, the points are multiplied by 3). I hope you enjoy playing the Dual Match 3.
