Clever, brain-testing puzzle game combines swipe mechanic and Match 3 gameplay
Seattle, Wash. – October 9, 2014 – WildTangent Studios announces Swipe 3™, an easy-to-learn puzzle game, available free today for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. The new mobile title combines ‘Match 3’ gameplay with a fun swipe mechanic.
In Swipe 3, players start with three colored tiles on a four-by-four square board. Players then swipe with the goal of lining up tiles of the same color to remove them from the board and earn points. But they must swipe carefully; a new tile appears following each move. While the premise is simple, Swipe 3 tests new and veteran Match 3 players and keeps them coming back for more.
Players can create personal strategies or opt for a luck-based approach. Swiping four tiles in a row, removing all but one tile or clearing the entire board earns bigger points, but all take time and a little good fortune.
Matt Shea, head of WildTangent Studios, comments: “Swipe 3 is perfect when you need a quick escape from a busy day, want to exercise your brain, or pass the time during your commute. There are countless strategies in Swipe 3, and we can’t wait for players to put their ‘swiping’ skills to the test and discover their own.”
Swipe 3 can be downloaded for free today here, and is coming to Android and the WildTangent Games mobile service.
