Just posted my review on itunes .....:

Nice variation on the Match-3 principle.

Picked this game up only to find out that this a great variation on the Match-3 principle.

The trick is to shift the blocks into the playing field to create a combo as big as possible without getting yourself into a more challenging position due to the fact that you have to get rid of another color brought into position.

Puzzles get increasingly more difficult while progressing through the game, which is the way it should be....and with 50+ challenges ahead it should give you more then enough enjoyment for the money.

What i would love to see in a future update : more animations and a visible countdown timer to give you that extra pressure.

Nice game !

Edit : forgot to add the following to the future update thingy...sharper or higher res graphics for the surroundings would be a lovely extra.

I agree, this is a fun game. The sliding mechanics make it a nice change to the matching formula.

I've only played the Lite version but this is a really good game. The graphics are excellent and the puzzle itself is enthralling.

Very nice take on Match 3 - definitely more of a thinking/strategy game to clear the board. I definitely like it. It's not timed, though that could be an option some folks would like.

Nice graphics (glad it's on the iPad - the squares are small enough as it is, and in fact the board itself could use more of the iPad real estate).

I would suggest adding info on the help pages about the best combo and rank categories. Also a way to cycle through the help screens a little quicker (via a tap to proceed) if you're just needing a refresher...

Great game!

I agree with the above. Match3 is starting to get boring, this one is a nice take on it with a nice theme. Downloaded!

I haven't seen any notification of this but Brickshooter Egypt HD is free for one day, December 29, 2010! AppShopper still shows the price as $6.99 but the App Store lists it as FREE courtesy of FAAD app a day promotion.

This is a great game. Get it while you can!
