An upcoming movie titled Maleficent is set to hit theaters on May 30, but as with most Hollywood blockbusters, a game to go along with the film is now available on both iOS and Android. The game, Maleficent Free Fall, reminds me of a mix between Candy Crush and Bejeweled, but it is easy to see that the developers behind the game have spent quite a bit of time on this creation.
Upon opening, you will notice that if you twist your device around, you will see a parallax effect, much like you see on iOS 7 devices. This same effect is also used in each level of the game, being quite the premium touch for such a simple title. As mentioned, it plays much like Bejeweled, where players match 3 or more shapes to collect points and boost power ups for obtaining high scores.
As far as a storyline goes, we get to watch Maleficent grow up from a little evil villain in the early levels, to a grownup villain in later levels. To tie in Candy Crush, players only have a certain amount of lives to use, and if you fail a level, you lose a life. Lives are regained by waiting out a timer, just like in Candy Crush.
The game is free to download and play, but parents beware, there are plenty of IAPs for your children to get in trouble with.
If you’ve never played Bejeweled before, you’re probably in the minority of human beings in the developed world. This series of puzzle games is a classic and thoroughly addictive in just about every form it’s ever taken. After being available on iOS and Facebook for a while, Bejeweled Blitz has reached Android, and it’s free to download (you should know what that means by now).
Bejeweled Blitz is based around the tried-and-true matching gameplay with some additional social elements built in. There is also a time limit, hence the “blitz” part. You can play against Facebook friends, or just spam your news feed with Bejeweled updates.

Globulous Is Three Measures Of Mahjong, One of Bejeweled, Half Measure Of Tetris, Shaken Over A Sphere
To call this game “Tetris on a sphere” would be a bit disingenuous. It’s far, far more complicated than that. Tetris merely requires you to place falling pieces such that they create solid, dissolving rows and thus abate, if temporarily, the peril of becoming overwhelmed by the steady stream of burdens in what I can only assume is a clever metaphor for adulthood. Globulous, on the other hand, has a clear goal: clear out layers of the sphere and reach the prize inside. It’s the method that gets complex.
The gameplay is a little difficult to grasp at first (as is any puzzle game that operates in 3D), but thankfully there are plenty of tutorials.

Globulous Is Three Measures Of Mahjong, One of Bejeweled, Half Measure Of Tetris, Shaken Over A Sphere was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
For those Classic 5 or Bejeweled fans we have an awesome and beautifully designed new puzzle game for Android to share with you all today. It’s called 7×7 and was just recently launched in the Google Play Store this week. Just like Classic 5 and other puzzle games it’s extremely easy to understand, but gets very addicting as you go along.
Just like Classic 5, Bejeweled, or many other similar puzzle games the idea is extremely simple. Match colors in horizontal, vertical or diagonal rows with as few turns strategically as possible to earn the most points. You’ll need to match 4 of any color in a row, and getting two rows at a time is bonus points. We all know the name of this game, but can you do it?
7×7 adds on this classic and awesome time-wasting game by having a beautiful touchscreen friendly user interface, and they’ve added a few unique spins to really make the game better than most. The developers added power-ups to save you from those sticky situations or moments where you weren’t thinking clearly. It’s all about strategy here folks! 7×7 has an “undo” power-up but don’t use em all or you’ll be sorry. Then they have a move anywhere power-up for when there’s no moves left. I happened to use them early and wish I saved a few.
You get in-game achievements and high score alerts, and clearing a level will earn you another undo power-up. Again, I’d be saving those til things get hot and difficult later on. You never know when you’ll need a lifeline. The graphics are clean, the user interface is sharp and easy to understand, and overall it’s extremely polished and well made. If you’re looking for a well made and designed fun puzzle game to keep you entertained for hours — try 7×7 by Kiip Inc. Get this brand new puzzler for Android by clicking here.

Samsung has announced that its miniaturized, mid-range handset, the Galaxy S3 mini, will be making its way to British shored from next Thursday, Nov. 8. In its announcement today, Samsung also reveals that UK S3 Mini buyers will also bag free copies of mobile games The Sims 3 and Bejeweled 2.
Naming aside, the Galaxy S3 Mini doesn't share a whole lot in common with its full-sized sibling. It's powered by a 1GHz dual-core CPU, packs a 5MP rear camera and a 4-inch WVGA SuperAMOLED screen. However, it is at least running the latest version of Android, 4.1 Jelly Bean, along with Samsung's most recent TouchWiz Nature UX.
Samsung promises a release across all major UK mobile networks and independent retailers from next Thursday. Anyone planning on picking one up? Shout out in the comments.
We've got Samsung's full press release after the break.

If you’re like the vast majority of puzzle players out there, there’s a good chance you’ve had about enough of games like Bejeweled. Simple and addictive, match-three copy-cat games abound. I’m looking for a game to take this genre to a new level, complete with story and meaning. So, I was excited to try Headwar Zero, a match-three game with a backstory that takes players into the heart of an all-out war for the sake of their people.
Just others in this field, Headwar Zero is all about making matches — in this case from a variety of interesting heads! Match up combos, use specials, and reach a “Clear” score as fast as possible. Do it all in the name of Arundel, to defeat your enemies and bring justice to your people. While these sorts of in-game stories are often far-fetched, Headwar Zero is still up there as pretty strange. Still, the clips and animated slides are a great way to enjoy a full-on story without becoming immersed in a full RPG. (more…)

The incredibly popular Plants vs. Zombies franchise is set to receive a sequel in 2013, according to PopCap. Earlier today, the game studio announced that the follow up to the original PvZ is slated to launch in “late spring of 2013″. The new game will add an array of fresh features, settings, and situations that are “designed to delight the franchise’s tens of millions of fans around the world.”
Plants vs. Zombies has proven to be one of the most successful games to ever launch on mobile devices. If you haven’t had the luxury of playing, Plants vs. Zombies offers a unique take on the classic tower defense genre. Instead of setting up a wall of cannons or machine guns, you must defend your backyard by using a plethora of plants. Unsurprisingly, the game can become excessively addicting at times, disappearing hours of your day at a time. If you haven’t had the chance to play the original, it’s currently available in the Google Play Store. Either way, you can catch the full press release after the break.
POPCAP’S PLANTS VS. ZOMBIES™ SEQUEL SET TO SPRING IN FIRST HALF OF 2013
Plants vs. Zombies Sequel Will Feature Hordes of New Plant and Zombie Types and Mulch More
SEATTLE, Washington – August 20, 2012 – PopCap Games, maker of some of the world’s most popular video game franchises and a division of EA, today announced that the underground growth of the sequel to Plants vs. Zombies™, one of the world’s most popular video games, is germinating and advancing with rigor.
The sequel to Plants vs. Zombies is expected to launch by late spring 2013, and will include a bevy of new features, settings, and situations, designed to delight the franchise’s tens of millions of fans around the world. No other details of the highly anticipated new installment in the franchise are available at this time, beyond the following comments from some of the game’s denizens.
“Spring is crullest curlie ungood time, and plantz grow dull roots,” noted an unidentified spokesperson. “So, we are meating you for brainz at yore house. No worry to skedule schedlue plan… we’re freee anytime. We’ll find you.”
“There was a time we relished a bracing, hearty blend of zombies, in the morning,” said Sonny F. Lower, a representative of the Flora Forever Foundation. “But first, a brisk shower and some strategic pruning are required. Tomorrow is near!”
Known for its quirky, one-of-a-kind blend of art, humor, polish and attention to detail, PopCap has been a mainstay of casual, mobile and social gaming for more than a decade. More than a billion people around the world have played PopCap’s video games, including the award-winning, blockbuster franchises Plants vs. Zombies, Bejeweled®, Zuma®, Peggle® and Bookworm®. The breadth of PopCap’s audience is similarly impressive, as its games appeal equally to both genders and all ages.
PopCap Games is the leading global developer, publisher and operator of casual video games: fun, easy-to-learn, captivating games that appeal to all ages across PC, mobile, social and other platforms. Based in Seattle, Washington, PopCap was founded in 2000, was acquired by Electronic Arts in 2011, and has a worldwide staff of more than 600 people in Seattle, San Francisco, Vancouver, B.C., Dublin, Seoul, Shanghai and Tokyo. PopCap’s games have been downloaded over 1.5 billion times by consumers worldwide, and its flagship franchise, Bejeweled®, has sold more than 50 million units.
Gamescom is fast approaching, and and where we wouldn’t normally cover the video game trade-show being held in Cologne, Germany, it’s what Square-Enix revealed coming to Android that made me jump on keyboard. With around 5 game titles already released on Android, it looks like Squenix is just getting started, announcing 6 titles that they will be demoing at Gamescom.
The remakes continue with Final Fantasy Dimensions the title Android gamers will get most hyped over (Android needs more RPG’s), along with the announcement of Kingdom Hearts 3 — not really, I just wanted to see if you were still awake. The rest are a handful of puzzlers coming in a variety of shapes and sizes. First up is Qwirkle (a puzzle game similar to Bejeweled but involves matching shapes and colors), Motley Blocks (another 3 block matching title), Koozac (a Tetris-type puzzler), SolaRola (a remake of a platforming puzzler), and finally Mensa Academy (a mini game mash-up with over 100 replayable levels).
As DroidGamers mentions, Demons’ Score and Guardian Cross were both sadly absent from the announcement. One thing I’ve always like about Square’s titles is that they charge premium pricing, without the ads and in-app purchases that plague many games in the Play Store (a model I wish more devs would adopt). But with the majority of their titles simply remakes of older titles, I guess you could call Square-Enix old-school like that.
With Gamescom, Europe’s foremost gaming event set to open, Square Enix has released information about the games from their portfolio that will be available for demo action. The most buzzworthy is Final Fantasy Dimensions which was the first Final Fantasy game developed for mobile platforms. Final Fantasy Dimensions features 2D pixel art, job-driven character growth, and the ability to inherit the jobs of your companions.
Besides Final Fantasy Dimensions, Square Enix has some other games to show off, including:
- Qwirkle – a shape- and color-based matching game in the vein of Bejeweled;
- Motley Blocks – another matching game with a twist, requiring users to drag their finger across the screen to create the matches;
- Koozac – a hybrid of Tetris and Sudoku;
- SolaRola – a classic puzzle game reportedly in need of major updates based on existing user reviews of the version now available in Google Play; and
- Mensa Academy – a package that includes over 100 games to challenge the mind, including a test for a user’s Mensa score.
Until more information comes out during Gamescom, break out your existing Final Fantasy games to start practicing your RPG skills with the Warriors of Light.

Price: free Download on the App Store
Cullaboration Media announces the release of Wrackle 1.1, a new twist on word search and word find games for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Wrackle combines the spelling of Boggle and the game play of Bejeweled to create a fast paced, brain challenging game. Players are given a six by six grid of letters and must find as many words as they can in 1 minute. Words may be selected up, down, left or right and letters may be swapped to help spell words. When a correctly spelled word is selected, those letters are removed from the board and replaced with new letters. Single and multiplayer options make Wrackle addictive to both the causal and competitive game player.
“By combining aspects of Boggle and Bejeweled, Wrackle makes you think quickly and plan ahead”, says Matt Johnston, co-founder of Cullaboration Media. “Don’t let the simplicity of the game fool you, trying to find words quickly can be challenging, especially with time running out.”
Single player mode includes 100 game boards that players incrementally unlock. High scores and achievements are posted to Game Center when available. Single player games are played in two variations: Dash and Survival. In Dash, players have one minute to find as many words as they can. In Survival, extra time is added to the game clock for each correctly spelled word.

The Nokia Asha Series 40 phones were introduced at Nokia World last fall and today it expands by a few models, with the 202, 203 and 302.

Both expand the lower end line with access to 40 free games ( including Bejeweled, Need for Speed, Tetris, Sims Medieval) and Nokia Life services. The 302 (pictured above) will be the first to bring Microsoft Exchange support on Series 40, a feature that will also be added to the older 303.

Once upon a time there were two pigs who built their castle out of jewels…Well, maybe that’s not the exact version of the classic tale, but this game isn’t the exact version of the classic game it appears to be. PiggyWoogy is a version of the classic match-three puzzler and while it has a very Bejeweled feel to it, PiggyWoogy is a clever recreation of classic gameplay. PiggyWoogy’s storyline is simple – save piggy and his sweetheart swine from the invading woogys (wolves) by making matches within the castle’s jeweled wall.Just like you would expect from similar game boards, different colored jewels are rearranged to connect three or more. As the matches disappear, new jewels fall into place. The difference in PiggyWoogy is the wolves that are scaling the jeweled wall. The right combinations will dislodge the wolves, causing them to fall. Rather than playing against a clock, players are pitted against the wolves. The levels are cleared by dislodging each level’s preset number of wolves. (more…)
The Gem Spinner 2 Android game is a fresh take on the match 3 style games you’re likely to have played in the past, with a new and challenging “twist”.
- Version: 1.0.7
- Size: 18.93MB (apps2SD enabled)
- Category: Games
- Price: $1.99
Gem Spinner 2 features 50 unique levels which span 5 different destinations across the map. The basic gameplay is similar to other match 3 type games like Bejeweled where you must align three different colored shapes in a row to eliminate them from the game board. However, this Android game adds a couple extra levels of difficulty by 1) isolating jewels within subsections which limits their movement and 2) requiring subsection rearrangement and spinning to find new matches.
You can swap jewels by taping two adjacent jewels but only as long as they are within the same outlined subsection. However, its perfectly acceptable (and necessary) to create alignments of 3+ similar jewels across the different boundaries. If you can’t seem to find an appropriate move, you can spin the subsections 180 degrees by quickly double-tapping them or drag-and-drop them into a new location (so long as they fit). This will introduce new arrangements to work with. After 3+ jewels are removed, you’ll notice that the background color of their positions will darken. Then, by eliminating jewels from each position in a subsection you will destroy it and it will disappear from the game board.
As you play, make sure to pay attention to the time/move bar on the bottom left of the screen. Creating a match will replenish the countdown time while letting it get too low will introduce “sinister suns” to the game board which block subsection movement and rotation. Additionally, be aware of the colored bubbles at the top of the screen which represent the next jewels to fall when a match removes jewels. This can have a strategic advantage if you have multiple potential moves to choose from. At the bottom of the screen you’ll see your score tracker made up of water droplets, stars, and a “P” for the perfect score.
- More advanced match 3 style Android game
- 50 progressively challenging levels
- Spinning game blocks/subsections adds new gameplay dimension
- Polished graphics, menus, maps, and levels
Areas for improvement:
- Hoping for a level expansion pack!
Conclusion: If you’re a fan of the match 3 games but want an even greater challenge (with more strategy required) look no further than the Gem Spinner 2 Android Game. “Swap, drag, and spin your way around the world in this unique action puzzler.”
Amazon’s been really good to us lately. If the $15 QuickOffice Pro suite for free wasn’t good enough, they’re now offering the sequel to one of best games of all time – Bejeweled 2 – for free. Many of you already know how to play this wonderful game and even if you are new to the series it won’t be long before you pick up on it. It’s simple and fun for casual players and can get really challenging for those who want to go beyond that. You really can’t go wrong with this download, paid or otherwise. Find it here and download it today.
You don’t encounter a lot of apps that have been downloaded over 1,000,000 times with a 4.7 user rating. Pumpkins vs Monsters is one of those apps, and it’s a highly addictive game that is really fun to play. If you are a fan of games like Bejeweled or Plants vs. Zombies! you will love this one. Also, with Halloween only a couple of days away, it’s easy to get into, but I have a feeling your addiction will continue longer after you the ghosts and goblins have disappeared.
The premise is simple; You have an array of pumpkins, but you must match up the different colors in groups of at least three in order to flick them at the monsters that are coming at you. You can also collect coins and other gems in order to purchase other weapons, which you will need because this game gets challenging pretty quickly. You get the option to play story mode, which has up to 90 levels, or endless mode for hours of fun. My only complaint is when tapping the coins and gems (to collect), it’s not as responsive as I would like, but you may find a different experience depending on which device you’re using.

Electronic Arts (EA) announced yesterday that they would pay as much as $1.3 billion to buy PopCap Games, Inc. PopCap has been in business for 11 years and has created games such as Bejeweled, Plants Vs. Zombies, Peggle, and Zuma.
This acquisition is EA’s biggest, and it consists of $650 million in cash and $100 million in EA shares. PopCap can receive additional payments if they hit certain performance levels. For example, PopCap can get as much as $550 million if their earnings reach $343 million (before interest and taxes) for the two years ending in December 2013.
