*Match* is easy to learn but not so easy to master. The idea of this match puzzle game is to place colored dots on a grid in same-color rows to clear them.
Match puzzle game starts with two different dot colors. The goal of each level will be stated at the beginning, you’ll need to clear a certain number of rows made up of each color dot. For example, you might need to clear one green row and two blue rows. It will be different on each level. If you complete this goal before time is up, you win the level and move on.
Each level brings new obstacles, power-ups, and challenges. Your dot pieces start out as straight lines, but quickly change to Tetris-like shapes that you can rotate to fit the grid. As you move on in levels, there are blocked spots that can only be cleared by clearing rows directly next to them.
This is a fun match puzzle game to play and a free download, but it can get expensive quickly. If you’re not a fan of the IAP (in-app purchase) model, don’t bother with this one. The ads are frankly obnoxious; while the banner ad across the bottom is all right, there are pop-up ads between levels as well. You can remove them for $2.99. Additionally, you can purchase power-ups to help you clear the levels. Most irritatingly, you only get a small number of piece rotations for free, after that you must pay. I was not able to make much progress through the levels without rotating pieces.
Place Colored Dots on the Board
You'll be given groupings of colored dots in this match puzzle game. Pick them up and place them on the board to create same-color rows. Each level has a specific goal to complete.
Tap Dot Groups to Flip Them
If you need to flip a dot group to place it on the board the way you want it, just tap it to rotate it a one quarter turn. Keep tapping it until it's in the correct orientation. But be careful: you don't get very many flips before you hit the in-app purchase paywall in this match puzzle game.
Clear Enough Rows to Pass the Level
Match puzzle game has such a simple goal, but it does get harder as the grids get larger, more colors are added, and new obstacles come into play. At some point, you may find it impossible to continue passing levels without purchasing power-ups.
This is an enjoyable match puzzle game to play, if you don’t mind IAPs. It’s worth the free download to check out for yourself; then you can decide whether or not it’s fun enough for you to go beyond the paywall.
