Looks sort of interesting. It's not an IAP Trojan Horse, is it?

I wonder what goes through the minds of developers who develop a game that has been done SO many times already..
There are like..100s of triple town clones in the AppStore..surely it couldn't be beneficial? Something unique would have been a better option, and could pay off big time, but it is a bit of a risk, but it's better to take a gamble then play it safe with a clone that'll never get featured because of its clonedness..hmm

It will not include any IAP, ads or annoying push notifications.

Pocket Land plays very different to Triple Town and is definitely not a clone. Compared to Triple Town, in Pocket Land you have resources to manage which unlock after harvesting, selling or burning certain game pieces. The game pieces are not random, you build your land from the ground up (sandbox) and unlock new game pieces accordingly. Also, Triple Town is a match-3 game, while Pocket Land is a 'match-2' game.

I could list all the differences, but you have to play it to see that it really is an unique experience.

PS: If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask here.

Terribly sorry, but I am going to buy this.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Just please for the love of god have a mute option for the music. That music with the whistling made me want to repeatedly stab myself....

Other than that this looks to have a lot of potential!
