Favorite Four: Match-3 Games

The Match-3 genre is often quite maligned these days. Criticized for being repetitive and unoriginal, I’m out to prove that’s not the case. There are plenty of imaginative reinterpretations of the familiar genre, and here’s a look at four of the best.

Bejeweled
OK, so Bejeweled is pretty standard Match-3 fodder. It’s also the best purist interpretation out there, ensuring hours of fun for any jewel matching fan. There’s no storyline to follow or anything complex like that. Just a series of modes focused on matching similarly colored gems to each other. It’s pure, it’s simple and it’s a great time waster.

Scurvy Scallywags
Ably demonstrating the variety that Match-3 gaming can offer, Scurvy Scallywags combines pirates, the classic humor of Monkey Island creator Ron Gilbert and, of course, Match-3 gameplay. It’s great fun and surprisingly deep, thanks to the ability to build new ships and explore side quests. Particular joy stems from the customization options available for those who want to create their own personalized pirate.

10000000
It might be a little difficult to remember how many zeros need to go in the title, but everything else about 10000000 is very memorable. It’s a dungeon crawling game that combines Match-3 style sensibilities to create a potently addictive title. Plenty of upgrades and objectives are available to keep one playing into the night, even if you started playing that morning.

Triple Town
Like precious little else out there in the Match-3 genre, Triple Town is an unique proposition. The player’s sole objective is to grow the biggest possible city, all via matching three or more game-pieces. Combine three pieces of grass and make a bush, with three bushes turning into a tree and so forth. It really is quite original stuff, and strangely addictive too. Who would have thought that matching a few tiles of the same shape could do so much?

New App: Toybox is Two Games in One And at the Same Time

Posted by on August 23rd, 2012
iPhone App - Designed for iPhone, compatible with iPad

I’ve been playing an early build of Toybox for a month or so. It’s a fun little multitasking game. It’s kind of like rubbing your belly and patting the top of your head, but you know, in game form.

On the left side of the screen you have a simple little shooter. On the right, you have a match 3 game. Shooting blinking ships on the left drops the corresponding block on the right. The fun comes in keeping both sides moving. We’ll have a full review for you soon.

If you’ve tired of solving a Rubik’s Cube, it’s time for something new. Colorgon takes the simplicity of the match three genre and the challenge of mind-bending puzzles and combines the two into a unique brain training exercise. And now, Colorgon has updated to version 1.1, adding the ability for users to create their own puzzles and share them with their friends. Even better, right now it’s free on the App Store.

In the universal app Colorgon, players manipulate interconnected, multicolor hexagons in an attempt to get colors to match up. Puzzles range from the simple to the sublime, and with the addition of player-created puzzles, the challenges are endless. Players can also compete against friends asynchronously to see if they can solve a puzzle faster than anyone else.

Can you make all the colors gone in Colorgon? It’s available now in the iTunes App Store – what are ou waiting for?
