Hilarious dancing robot + match 3
This is a wonderful gem of a game. The screenshots don't do it justice at all. You are treated to very attractive scenes, especially in the first levels, where they are tropical. Then you have a very cute robot, albeit a little pixelated. The robot tosses colored crates which you direct by clicking on the crate you wish to replace, making matches of 3 or more. This game will recognize L or T matches, which help you win a level faster. When you win the level, the robot goes into a fabulously funny but cool dance. (I should look so good on the dance floor.) And the dance keeps changing, so it's worth it just to play to see what moves the robot will come up with next.
If you choose the Relax mode, it allows you to practice, and the level never ends. That also means you don't get anywhere but level 1. In order to play the game through, you have to choose the Classic or Puzzle mode. Unfortunately, these two are timed, which is why the game lost 1 star, as I like stress-free games. That said, I was able to do okay, only needing to repeat a handful of levels because I ran out of time. That's why I'd suggest starting off with the Relax mode to develop your moves. In the timed modes, you don't have a lot of time to think about how to arrange the boxes for matching.
Once you finish a group of levels, you get to upgrade the robot, and those upgrades add different characteristics to freshen up the game. Power ups also appear frequently.
Definitely give this a try, if only for the hilarious dancing robot.
(Game designers: consider enhancing the robot graphics for 2012, add an untimed game mode, and re-release. I'd also love a screensaver of the dancing robot!)

A Match 3 Game That Had Potential .... Then Flopped.
A unique match 3 game whereby you throw colored crates at a game board of other various colored crates to make a match 3 or above. This is easy to do since you just put your cursor on the crate you want to toss YOUR crate at to make the match and ... surprise .... it hits.
There are amazing bonuses you earn by matching 4 or more crates, however, the very short tutorial does NOT explain what they are and what they do, other than the bomb - duh, who doesn't know what a bomb does.
There are several modes of play - relaxed (keep hitting the crates forever. The level never stops. It's not timed. It gets boring very fast.); Classic (This is a timed mode. Not only do you have to empty the board before time is up, but as you level up there is a "special" box that you has to exit the bottom of the game board. This is AWFUL and where I began to hate the game. You don't see the "special" box until very late into the level making it almost impossible to pass it - and apparently, there are more than 1 "special" boxes per level.); Puzzle (You have to destroy all the crates in a specified number of moves.).
I gave this game 3 stars - 1 for effort. Otherwise, it would have been a 2 star game for me and it is definitely NOT a buy for me. I also do not encourage anyone to waste an hour playing a free demo that's boring and impossible to pass the levels of.
Sorry, devs, you definitely missed the mark here.
