For something a little different in the match-three game genre is a new challenge called Unmatched. Yes, you need to match three or more objects. Yes, you can choose from various game modes. And yes, you can tackle the Game Center leaderboard. But, what makes Unmatched stand out is that you pick the objects, the backgrounds, and even the grid size to create the perfect game.
Normal, colors, and icons
If you choose Normal, this means you match both colors and icons. If you pick Colors, you will match colors only and not icons. And, if you choose Icon, this means you will match icons only and ignore colors. You can select the objects to be matched from shape and emoji sets.
Freeplay, time trial, and arrows
These three game modes are pretty much what they sound like. Freeplay provides casual gameplay without time limits. Time Trial has you matching as many objects as you can in two minutes. And in Arrows mode, you will match arrows and ignore colors. For each game mode, you can swipe to select your grid size.
Pick your backgrounds
There are 12 background options that will alternate, so pick just one or all of them to mix things up. you can also decide between a dark or light theme and whether or not the background should move. It all depends on how much of a distraction you are willing to have the background be.
Play the game
Once you have customized everything just right, it’s time to play. As with most match-three games, you drag the tiles to create your matches in columns or rows. Making matches with more than three objects will give you special tiles. For example, create a tile that will clear a row by matching four objects.
Unmatched may not be the most challenging match-three game out there, but depending on how you personalize the game, it can certainly become difficult. For instance, if you choose to match colors, can your eyes really ignore the icons and vice versa?
Give it a shot and see what you think, Unmatched is available for free on the App Store for both iPhone and iPad.
