Review: ‘Six Match’ is My New Match-3 Obsession

Six Match By: Aaron Steed I'm always on the lookout for a new microtransaction-free match-three game to play when I have some down time, and my latest obsession is Aaron Steed's Six Match. While you might think the genre is overdone and there's nothing new to be seen, Six Match adds enough of a twist to make it feel fresh. It's a relaxed, endless, turn-based game in which you always have six moves to make a match or it's game over. The closest comparison I can make is to Alec Thomson's Swap Read more [...]

‘Kensho’ Review: A Gorgeous Puzzler That’s Missing a Little Something

Kenshō By: FIFTYTWO What first attracted me to FIFTYTWO's new puzzle game, Kenshō, were the gorgeous animations and lovey music in the App Store trailer video.

You Must Build A Boat: Review

You Must Build A Boat By: EightyEight Games LTD I never played 10000000, even though many people recommended it when I was looking for IAP-free match-three games like Hero Emblems. I just couldn't get past the graphics. But with Luca Redwood's new release, You Must Build a Boat (YMBAB),I decided to push aside my reservations based on the look of the game. And, while, I admit I thought the dragon was a camel at first (and am still not entirely convinced otherwise), the gameplay is definitely enough Read more [...]
