PocketPop Revenge - FREE

price drop from $1.99 to free.


Collapse-like game. Just tried briefly, gameplay seems solid and good production values. App store description says it won some PocketPc Award back in 2001.

Not really interested, I tried it, deleted it 5 minutes later. Nice find though.

There's a few that are the same genre but this one seems to be the better of them with more to the game. Normally don't like double tapping on a game but in this case I like to be able to see what's been tapped before removing them from the board. Like this one more so than the others I've played and glad its free (for now). Graphics are nice too. Nothing extreme but a nice casual game.

Definitely a nice variant of the SameGame genre. The additional play modes change up the strategy nicely, and the presentation is quite slick. I'd probably rank this about second place in the pantheon of SameGame clones behind Hudson's NeoSameGame.
