      "These days there are many match 3 games that are out there for the iPhone. But if you're into Disney like I am, specifically Frozen, this app is THE BEST for you. Not only are there over a thousand puzzles, the theme and overall game itself is super well made and a great way to pass time."

    WHAT'S THE MEANING?

    Tile-matching video games are puzzle games where players are required to place tiles of the same color together or arrange the tiles in the game's pre-set order. It became famous in the 1980s when the era's technology limited the developers from creating games with better graphics than just tiles.

    DID YOU KNOW? 

    Did you know that Various' Tetris, the famous tile-matching game, is the best-selling video game ever? In 2016, Forbes reported that Tetris, despite the game's "blocky" graphics and "linear" progression, has sold 495 million copies of itself or its other versions since it was created and released in 1984 by Alexey Pajitnov, who developed the game with computer-human relationship specialist Vladimir Pokhilko. The game was simple as it only requires players to fill a horizontal line with blocks so it will disappear and will not fill up the screen with tiles. It is easy to play in the early levels but the tempo of the game increases directly with the score. 

    It was available on different platforms but the Tetris craze really boomed when Nintendo released the handheld console Game Boy. The solid and supportive fan base led to other tile-matching games but the improvement of graphics allowed improvement, like in the games Candy Crush and Bejeweled Blitz. It is enjoyed by most ages, hence its continuous rise on Forbes' best seller list, where it is virtually miles away from the second placer Minecraft (106.86 million) in terms of copies sold.

      "Gummy Drop is an interesting matching game that is available for both iphone and Android users. The app is free but you are encouraged to by "power ups" with real money in order to make advancing in the game easier. As you get further in the game, some levels are nearly impossible to complete without spending money, which is a downer if you don't have the money to spend. The game itself is interesting and has many different levels so you will not tire of it or complete it too quickly. There are also three difficulty levels to choose from so players of different skill levels can enjoy playing."
