Since Google has yet to implement an option for publishers to offer their apps and games for free on a limited time basis. This is possibly going to change since they are allowing magazine publishers to do just that. Though it is not in place for anything outside of their “newstand” we feel it is […]
Hexic Rush is an updated version of the original puzzle game, Hexic, that has been available on most mobile phones and Windows PC’s for years. Originally created by Alexey Pajitnov, of Tetris fame, Hexic Rush hides it addictiveness behind a simple looking multi colored screen that beckons the player on.
Jewel Quest is not a new title, at least the series has been around for awhile, though iWin has decided to start recycling game names. Here gamers are treated to a quest style game in the same vein as Candy Crush Saga, right down to the linear path, in app purchases for power-ups and a […]
Anyone that was a gamer from the early 80′s onward probably remembers when Tetris was released on the original Game Boy (the pea salad green screen version). Tetris was THE first portable selling game ever- thanks to Nintendo smartly packaging the game with the system. Yes, back then when you bought a system you got […]
When I first grabbed Dungeon Story, I expected another Bejeweled clone mixed with some basic RPG elements, ala Puzzle Quest. Nope. What is here, visually, is quite a bit less than PQ and many other similar games. As we all know though, there is more to gaming than the graphics and here, Dungeon Story comes up […]
Zookeeper originally was an innovative puzzle game that added new things to the casual puzzle mix and now, we have online multiplayer with players around the world but we had to sacrifice some things to get it.

For us here at Gaming on Batteries to cover it, a Bejeweled style game has to have something unique about it […]
Tile matching titles are everywhere on Android and iOS, the most prevalent are Bejewelled clones but there is another matching game that is older- Mahjong/Shanghai. There isn’t much that can be done to the base gameplay to change things up without breaking the formula for these types of games that has worked since their inception. […]
Time management games are all over the mobile market, almost as prolific as Bejeweled clones are. We have seen sushi bars, restaurants, nightclubs and many other facets of general life hit the time management trail, now we have pizzarias in Pizza Shop Mania (missed opportunity for advertising include Little Caesar’s, Pizza Hut and Dominoes just […]
When I was younger, playing Street Fighter II by Capcom on my Super Nintendo was the thing I did after school work was done and on weekends when I had free time (other than playing Sim City). The competitiveness of the game was cool and other than the occasional cheating boss character, it was cool […]
It is no secret that I am a fan of Match 3 games from good old Bejeweled to newer, more adventurous titles such as Wizschool, I enjoy a good Match 3 title. The trouble that most Match 3 titles face is being unique in some way, something that draws in the gamer and makes their […]
