App DescriptionSteamBalls for iPad - most polished and unique match-3 game ever.
"If you enjoy games that require you to put on your thinking cap, you will find this one to be right up your alley!" - appadvice.com
"Steamballs is the essence of match-3, polished to the extent of becoming an art with deep and varied gameplay. While the basic mechanics makes for an easy-to-pick-up gaming experience, the added features really make it a “hard-to-master” puzzler. In the end Steamballs is the perfect choice for any fan of the match-3 genre or even a gamer in search of a casual title to entertain themselves on the go." - touchmyapps.com
"Steamballs, a title that embraces the steampunk model both in a visual and interactive way. Indeed, the ornate steam powered machine that is the game’s playing field comes to life just as you would expect a working replica to do; brightly coloured balls trundle down the board with new ones appearing at the top to fill their place, and the eight columns of the board house four pressure sensitive levers that react to the weight of the balls placed on top of them." - gamesuncovered.com
"The addition of weight and having to use the scales intelligently really puts this Match-3 game into a category all its own. It's a game for thinkers, since nothing really happens by chance all that often. Smart use of the tools provided was really the only way to win. Just when we thought nothing new could come to this supposedly tired genre, Steamballs comes along and proves us wrong."- gamezebo.com
"f you’ve been looking for a quality Match-3 and you’re up for the challenge, I’d recommend checking out Steamballs. It looks great, it sounds great, it plays great and it’s got Open Feint. It’s such a polished, unique, feature filled game it’s tough to pass this one up." - appversity.com
