    Inspired in the Best Match-3 topic I've decided to list some of the Bejeweled alike games, meaning some kind ofswap and match 3 or more tiles.

    The idea was to make a poll with multiple votes but only 10 items are allowed. The list has 19 items right now.

    Here's a list (random order):

    Bejeweled 2
    2.99

    Sushi City
    0.99

    Gem Spinner
    1.99

    Witch's Workshop
    1.99

    ChocChocPop
    1.99

    Aurora Feint II: The Beginning
    0.99

    Aurora Feint II: The Arena
    7.99

    Aurora Feint The Beginning
    Free

    MM Park
    2.99

    MM Park Mini
    0.99

    Samurai Puzzle Battle Arcade
    0.99

    Samurai Puzzle Battle
    1.99

    GameBox Gems
    0.99

    Elasticity
    2.99

    Smiles
    4.99

    Smiles Zen
    2.99

    Diamond Twister
    1.99

    Jewel Quest II
    2.99

    Block Chaos
    0.99

    Puzzle Quest
    9.99

    Big Bang
    0.99

    MiZoo
    1.99

    Also to stay competitive, the 2 distinct games of Smiles are available separately.

    Smiles Zen (Match 3 meets Solitaire)
    $2.99

    Smiles Drop (No timer multiple Match 3)
    $2.99

    And yes, you save $1 buying the combined game (Smiles). Plus it takes up 1 icon slot instead of 2. ;)

    The idea is to list games that also have a swap element.

    It's been in approval with apple for a while now. Unfortunately the review process has been hit by the holiday season I fear.

    The animals coming from alternating top and bottom every third level just mixes things up a bit to make it harder to get combos.

    Please add 1 vote for Gem Spinner.
    I just picked it up after playing with the free version- I wasn't impressed by the graphics at first, but the gameplay won me over. It really is like a Bejeweled/Tetris mashup and very polished. So I have to revise my prejudice on games that aren't pretty to me. I guess looks aren't everything.

    Agreed on Gem Spinner.

    There's also a new one out called SuperNova. Looks interesting. Anyone try it?

    Well I think MiZoo should be added to your first post :). It meets all the criteria and is getting very good reviews !

    List updated with MiZoo and SuperNova.

    All games in the list should have a swap and match 3 or more mechanism (like Bejeweled).

    Very fun game, friends of mine wrote it. They did a great job of level balancing on this and it turned out super fun...

    It was weird that we both ended up writing ORIGINAL match 3 type games at the same time. A lot of cross beta testing went on... And both of us have some cool projects coming up too...

    What did you delete? Why did you bring this classic thread back from the dead to post something that obscure?
