With a 4.9 rating out of 35 reviews, this Kindle Fire game is getting great feedback from customers on its smooth gameplay and crisp graphics.
We purchased the game last week and tested it on our Kindle Fire HD. As with other "Match 3" games, a tiled board appears in a variety of patterns, and you swap adjacent tiles to line up 3 or more of the same holiday figures in a row. Matches of 3 or more vertical or horizontal tiles disappear, and more tiles drop in from above.
The five modes of difficulty include a "relaxed" mode, which has no timer. The more difficult modes are time-limited and have higher point thresholds to meet before moving on to the next level. Within each mode are multiple levels of gameboard patterns. No less than 300 levels are provided, so this game will keep you entertained for a good long while.
And, to keep things interesting, there are obstacles and power-ups to deal with. Obstacles are images that can't be swapped. They can only removed by clearing an adjacent string of images, or triggering a power-up. Power-ups are created when a string of 4 or more images are matched.
It's another nicely-designed game from Bullbitz. The levels are nicely graduated, so things don't get too difficult too soon. As you progress from one level to another, a scoreboard appears showing the points you earned for each preceding level. It's a smoothly-flowing, diverting game that's a pleasure to play.
