Sapphire Smash

Sapphire Smash


Sapphire Smash is a classic match 3 puzzle game, but on a hexagon layout. Swipe or tap two adjacent gems to swap them and arrange three or more gems of the same color in a row. The jewels will then disappear, earning you points. New jewels will fall down to re-fill the playing board. Try to set up chain reactions to earn more points!

In "Quick Game" mode, get as many points as you can in a 60 second period. Compare your high score with millions of people around the world and climb up the leaderboard ranks, powered by Google Play Game Services.

"Campaign" mode offers unlimited levels of gradually rising difficulty. Different objectives (crush all stone tiles, earn a certain score, or eliminate all black pearls), playing field shapes, obstacles and constraints, as well as achievements keep the game interesting.

Sapphire Smash has many unique twists that differentiate it from other, candy-based match 3 games:

★ Really free to play. No "pay-or-wait" or "pay-to-win"!
You never have to beg friends for lives or to unlock content. Just play as much as you want, when you want. The game will not ask you to pay real money to advance or finish a level. The only in-app-purchase in Sapphire Smash is to remove the full screen ads that pop up at reasonable intervals.

★ No randomness when re-playing levels!
Every attempt of the same level will start with the exact same gem positions. No more re-playing the same level over and over again, just to get lucky with a good starting setup. Actually learn from attempt to attempt, try different strategies to beat it.

★ Use those power-ups!
In Sapphire Smash, power-ups regenerate between levels. Unlike in other match 3 games, they are not consumable. In later stages, they become an integral part of the game, and it requires skill and strategy to use them in the most effective way.

★ Compete with your friends!
Sapphire Smash is integrated with Google Play leaderboards, which allow you to compare your scores with your friends, all players from all over the world.

★ Cloud save enabled
Your progress is saved to the cloud, which means you won't lose your progress when switching devices or when you have to re-install the game.

Recent changes:
- Combine bombs, lightning bolts and rainbow diamonds for even more powerful effects!
- New challenge mode: Match gems in the correct sequence, as shown on the top of the screen.
- Decreased frequency of timed challenges, and challenges where a certain score has to be reached.
- Showing player's leaderboard rank in main menu.
- Adjusted difficulty of campaign mode: increased move count and time, but later levels will get more difficult.
- Many small bug fixes.

Addictive! Feels more strategic than other match 3 games, probably because each round isn't random. Nice work!

Pretty good! Minor bug. When moving a block sometimes if you stop moving it, it will become offset and will stay that way. Other then that I found it pretty fun. :)

It's OK I'm always on the hunt for a great match 3 game, unfortunately this isn't it, although the game does have potential, it failed to really captivate me, its a little slow, and boring at times, I think I'll pass on this one.
