Bear Winter ($0.99 → Free, 38.5 MB): Fend off bears and survive for as long as possible in Bear Winter. It’s for gamers who are tired of the same old matching game mechanic.

In Bear Winter, the only way to survive is to prepare for when the ice bears come. Because they always will. You must stay warm by building fires, collecting arrows to fend off bears, and gathering acorns to replenish your health. To do so, simply swipe across any of the bottom three rows or columns. If you don’t create a match of three, your fire will begin to burn out. If you get a bear or two within your swipe line, you will be attacked. In order to survive for multiple days, try to strategically remove acorn, arrow, fire, and bear pieces to create new matches from the pieces above.

Bear Winter is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 12 ratings.
