The premise is as simple as it can get. Match three pieces of fruit that are alike to earn points. The more matches you make, the better your score. This game offers more than the basics. Not only do you swap tiles in order to make a match, but you also move columns or rows to line up three in a row.

You must reach a specified number of points in order to progress to the next level. You have a limited amount of time to reach your point score. There are no helpful hints, so if you get stuck, you are on your own. Although you have the option of rotating rows or columns, you don’t always want to use that feature. Sometimes the better match is made just by swapping tiles. You have to think a few moves ahead or you may wind up sabotaging yourself.

Overall, this free app is extremely difficult. It is as if the developers wanted to make sure it was nearly impossible to find a match. This is another game that’s hard to believe is free. It is exciting and addictive. You won’t want to put it down. Pick it up in the App Store today.
