Alien Hive

HopefulNebulaAlien Hive, a game by Appxplore is a blend of match 3, sliding block puzzles, and resource management with some alien breeding mixed in. It's all a bit reminiscent of Triple Town, where you shuffle items around to fill in gaps and help tiles evolve to be all that they can possibly be.

Alien HiveMatch three of any item to be presented with an evolved version of that item. Seedlings become sprouts, which grow until they become fruit, which are added to your inventory and can help evolve individual items. More importantly, eggs evolve into master aliens, and breeding these aliens is the object of the game. Standing between you and victory are the Naughty Bots who fix single tiles in place, forcing you to rethink your movement strategies. Fortunately there are some power-ups to give you a bit of an edge, such as a wormhole that lets you move any row of tiles and a shockwave that shuffles everything around. All of these can be won in-game or bought in the shop (with in-game currency or as an in-app purchase), and all of the power-ups persist between games so you don't have to use them right away.

Alien Hive blends its various genres into a rather addictive game. There's a built-in move limit that costs one crystal per action, but since you can earn crystals by regular play and start with 100 already in the bank, there's plenty of room to experiment. The graphics are cute and clean and the interface is smooth. If you're looking for a challenge that can be played in short bursts, Alien Hive is a great option.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the LG Optimus L9. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
