AppAdvice has teamed up with KickStart Development in order to offer you a chance to win one of five promo codes for Bit Blast Pro ($0.99) for iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. There are plenty of match-3 games out there, however, it's those with a twist that end up being the most addicting. In Bit Blast Pro, the captivating force is the pressure of a 60-second timer like Bejeweled Blitz with the cascading strategy of a game such as Sparkle. The game begins with a four-by-four grid and two different colored shapes. The basic objective is to match at least three of the same shapes by connecting them in a chain by drawing a line with a single finger. You can connect adjacent shapes in any way except crossing your line. Due to the high flexibility, you'll quickly discover that Bit Blast Pro is more of a match-9 game. Basically, the most effective method is to create a chain of every like shape on the board, if at all possible. This approach will also assist in the next strategic component: the setup. Make your best attempt to land new shapes in bunches, thus resulting in a guaranteed long chain. As you complete chains, several things will occur. Of course, new shapes will fall in to replace them and your score increase, but there's also an increase in level points and remaining time. Level points are a measure of difficulty. Each time you "level up," the grid size and variety of items expands. Soon, you'll be dealing with wall blocks, bombs to destroy those blocks, and new shapes. Bit Blast Pro is compatible with second generation iPad, third generation iPad, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 32GB and 64GB third generation iPod touch, fourth generation iPod touch and newer running iOS 5.1 or later. Classic and Puzzle gameplay modes as well as iPhone 5 optimization is coming soon.
