    A colourful and fun variation on the usual puzzle theme.

    Basically, this is another 'block busting' arcade game where you have to match up the same coloured blocks to get them to disappear. Once you have removed a certain number of them, the level is complete and you carry on ... Read Full Review

    Fun game that quickly gets its hooks into you.

    This game is like anime crossed with Tetris. You star as a cute little character who must pull blocks from an advancing structure, and fire them back to create combinations and knock out other blocks. It's a simple story... Read Full Review
