Make Matches To Battle Enemies

The match 3 mechanic is quite prolific to be used in multiple forms. These games let you match three to fight opponents. You might match swords for an attack, shields for defense, hearts to replenish health, and more. There are variations of what you match and what you face, but for the most part, there are enemies situated above the tiles to match, and every match you make contributes towards winning battles. There are also subtle variations in which you defend rather than attack in battle.
