App description: Fun and addictive match-three game featuring fruits with multiplying substitutes/wilds (like slot machines). Match 3 or more fruits to progress and increase your score. Trigger multiple matches from a single move to progress through the levels quicker.

Befruited is Open Feint enabled.

2 game modes: timed with a limited time per move and relaxed for some very long games.

Match multiples in a single move to get higher scores and progress through levels faster. Levels progression happens by the number of matches you make, not the number of moves.

Reach bonus levels for extra butterflies and wasps for huge score increases!

Create a match using the same fruit as the previous match for a multiplied score.

Submit your high scores with Open Feint and see how good you are! Facebook and Twitter enabled.

Get Feint Score points for achievements!

Buttons on the game screen:
- Tap || for pause and menu.
- Tap ? for hints (Beware! Your score will reduce!).
- Tap your score to see the scorecard.
- Tap and drag lines match fruits.

Buttons on the menu screen:
- Tap ? for help / how to.
- Tap email icon on menu page to send feedback.
- Tap speaker icon to toggle sound effects.
- Tap continue to continue a previous unfinished game.
- Tap relaxed to start a new untimed game.
- Tap timed to start a new timed game.

Some scoring strategies:

To get a butterfly multiplier put a butterfly between matching fruits.

You can use wasps to replace blank spots with fruits, this is the only way to get rid of blank spots. To use a wasp to clear an area put it between matching fruits

Limit your use of the hint button. The first match following hints is deducted from your score 10 times! After hints try to use a low value match.

Game Impressions

Here is my iTunes review I just left.

This is NOT another Bejeweled clone!

While it is another "line up 3 or more like symbols vertically or horizontally" type of deal, there are a number of cute twists.

-The symbols are worth different amounts since, as we all know, a blackberry is worth far more than an apple!

-Each level lasts a certain number of matches so you'll want to make each match count for as much as possible before you start on a new level with a fresh new board.

-While, as is typical in such games, that bigger groupings are worth more, as well as granting a bonus when multiple groups are cleared in a single move, this game has a further interesting mechanic of rewarding a x5 multiplier if the player clears the same fruit type again (the last fruit type cleared is shown in the upper left so it isn't like you need to track it on your own).

-The butterfly is a x10 multipling wildcard but can only be used if sandwhiched in between two same fruit types. For REALLY big points try making a set of 3 or more butterflied all by themselves!

-The wasp is a bomb but it also must be sandwhiched in between two like fruit to be set off. Wasps aren't just a fun source of explosive fun, but as you'll soon learn in the later levels that fruit often isn't replaced after being cleared, setting off a wasp WILL bring a bounty of fruit back onto the board! All of this goodness, however, comes at a big price since getting three or more wasps in-a-row means an instant game over!

-Every 7 levels you'll be awarded a bonus round with a lot of butterflies and wasps in it for you to make as many points as possible in a limited number of moves.

-The game ends once you run out of possible moves (every slide of a row or column can only per performed if it will score a set), get three or more wasps in a line, or run out of time in the Timed Mode (you only get a limited amount of time to make each move).

Good fun with a lot more to it than it might at first seem!

5/5

Ok, an update is now available with Twitter and Facebook updates using OpenFeint.

Improved help page and other optimizations in the next one. Took too much time with a big update for Boom! Minesweeper (now with screenshots with your win-posts on Facebook).

Have fun!
