211579_3jpgOne game we've been meaning to feature for some time is Myth People's Azkend [App Store].

This $2.99 puzzle game has seen life on multiple platforms including the Mac, PC and Flash. The iPhone version, however, manages to still feel perfectly suited for the device with a very natural use of touch controls.

The goal of the game is to convert the entire screen to blue tiles by sliding your finger across like-icons. As you match three or more icons, the underlying tiles turn blue and you are closer to the end of your task. Like most puzzle games, the full experience is greater than the describing the individual parts, and Azkend, in particular, is a wonderfully polished game with plenty of atmosphere.

The developers have also recently released a Lite version [App Store] of the game which gives you a great feel for the experience.

The game has also earned nothing but praise from our forum members and this more detailed review by Big Albie. At $2.99, it seems a bargain, but you can try the Lite version out for yourself.

App Store Link: Azkend Lite, Free, Azkend, $2.99.

    It's a pretty good game, but I really loathe the "auto-hints" that appear if you don't make a move for awhile, and I really wish this was an optional setting that we could toggle on or off — just as you can do in Bejeweled...

    Too weird, I just bought it this morning. So far so good, it's very smooth. I like it a lot. Haven't gotten too far into it yet to know about it's replayability.

    I wouldn't say "it seems like a bargain", but it does seem more appropriately priced than many games, given its polish.

    Very nicely done, both sounds and graphic. It's really enjoyable to play and highly addictive. Being a casual gamer, Azkend is a must have. Love it!
