10000000 has been something of a mainstay when it comes to fun match-3 puzzle games on iOS that don't feature candy. A sequel of sorts has recently been announced, which is awesome, but since it's still a ways off we'll have to make do with an update to the game we can currently play.
Of course when I say "make do" I mean "be excited for," since the update finally adds some much-desired support for the taller screens of the iPhone 5 and 5s. There are also some miscellaneous bug fixes, new Ace levels, and added Game Center support for achievements, but really it's all about the tall screen support.
You can grab 10000000 off the App Store right now for $1.99.
When 10000000 first appeared on the App Store, it took many people by surprise. The match-3 RPG runner hybrid thing garnered lots of attention and praise; so much so that there was talk of adding more content. Unfortunately the addition of extra content didn't work out, but we're getting a totally new game instead, titled You Must Build a Boat.
The new game functions in a similar manner to the earlier title, but now you're given choose-your-own-adventure moments that can affect your game. You'll be exploring hostile environments for items and treasures, capturing monsters, recruiting other characters as you attempt to build your boat, and more. You can find the details on what happened with 10000000 here, but the short version is the scope of what was being created got so large it ended up becoming a totally separate entity. Fans and players of the original haven't been forgotten, however. The plan is to put You Must Build a Boat on sale for free during the launch as a sign of appreciation.
No release date for You Must Build a Boat is planned yet, but iOS players will be happy to know that 10000000 will at least be getting an update within the next couple of days that finally adds iPhone 5 support and Game Center achievements.
