I recommend this one in a huge way

I have over 1300 games now and this falls into my top 20 of all time. So original and the addiction is like nothing I've had since Lumines for the PSP

More themes more themes!

I'm beyond bored of match-3 style games, and Lumines was about as fun for me as drinking ass water, but somehow this looks interesting... is there a video?

Oh wow I just tried the lite version and it is simply incredible. It is more of a strategy game than a classic match three game. It is one of the most polished iPhone games I have played. I am instantly purchasing the full version. This is well worth the actual price of $2.99!

Yup.

Anyway I just finished the Tetryon lite version, then purchased the full game. Thanks for making Match 3 new again

Tasty fail aside...

This game is worth a second look. I have been on something of a puzzle kick lately but there's a lot going on here. I can't really compare this to another game very easily.

I'm only about six levels in but I can tell this is going to be a keeper. Check out the light version and be sure to set aside 15min to play through all of it because they add basic game elements as you go. At first it seemed to simple but by the end of the tutorial I was hooked.

Get it this weekend while it's on mega sale!

Game Impressions

JUMPING JIMMINEY!

When I saw this a few weeks ago I simply assumed it was some sort of "Neon Symbolism" but was way off as this game combines a number of twisted and strategic bits (bracketing pieces, wild cards that can also be used to blow up certain pieces, and all sorts of weird never seen before in a strategic tile placing/match 3 title)!
