So its like a cross between tetris and a match 3? I really like the animation where they get up and walk off.

While it has some fun animations, it appears to be just another Columns clone, I hope I'm missing something.

I think, "To match things up & get score" is the basic concept of tons of puzzle games. This is not a clone of others.

The falling 3x1 piece making groups of 3 or more in a line, it appears very much like Columns to me but, hey, no reason not to borrow from a great classic. I do like how your game increases the scoring in the later levels, that's a nice twists so that IF one starts at a much higher difficulty they could still have a competitive score with somebody starting from the first level.

...da hell kind of title is that? It sounds like something some barking loon would run around naked in Wal-Mart shouting as he tags random people for no readily apparent reason.

Thank you for comment.

Although the scores are increased, the higher levels will be much difficult, too.

There is a Dino will come up to mess AFROIANs after the level of HARD, and an UFO will come up to change their colors in a random way after the level of INSANE. But those 2 modes have to be unlocked first.

NO PAIN NO GAIN.

BTW, A "Blowfish Monster" will be added in the UPDATE 1.2. (1.1 is completed but not published because 1.2 is almost completed during the review period of Apple.)

Well... Because they are aliens named AFROIAN from the AFRO planet.. I guess.

Does the game have different modes like quickplay, endless and time challenge?
