App description: Poker Smash is an action-packed puzzle game with a poker twist. Poker Smash expands on the traditional match-three puzzle mechanic with elements of one of the world's most popular card games: poker. Fast and fluid controls paired with radical features such as super-slow motion and card-blasting bombs make this game a whole new puzzle experience!

dcard's comments:

I released Poker Smash for iPhone a couple of days ago. Some of you may remember the original game from Xbox LIVE Arcade. It's available in the AppStore for $1.99. FYI, the game doesn't run on the old 2G phones, and apparently it takes 2 tries to load on the iPhone 3G (I'm trying to figure out what the deal is with this).

Anyway, I'd love feedback!

I don't see an iPad version. Is it on the way, will this be an universal app, or are you just saying it runs on the iPad?

Man, this game rocks. I've never played the original XBLA title, but this is a very polished and addicting game. Really, really well executed match 3. Just great stuff.
