Matchstick Memories isn't your typical text adventure. Instead of typing, you move through a series of memories of colored fragments that you swipe, light, and connect to collect. You've got to plan your moves carefully to avoid traps and collect the elusive matchboxes. While the levels are borrowed from puzzle standards, unique presentation and gameplay mechanics make this game a surprisingly compelling and tactile experience.
Block Legend is unfairly beguiling. We say this because it's so deceptively simple on the surface, yet its design allows for play sessions that never stop. And that's good, because you honestly won't want to. Created by Alvin Phu, Block Legend feels a lot like 10000000 mixed with Puzzle Quest (you know, back when it was good). It combines samegame with an RPG, allowing you to match tiles to attack, defend and level up. And it does so without ads, in-app purchases, or any other crazy gimmicks!
Pet Rescue Saga is a cute and captivating puzzle game that made its way from the world of Facebook to the mobile marketplaces. Created by King, the developer behind Candy Crush Saga, expect a well-tuned matching experience punctuated by a number of useful power-ups, all told through a shoestring story about rescuing adorable pets!
