4. Monument Valley
A cute little music box of optical illusions, Monument Valley, is a puzzler of gorgeous proportions. You play as a silent princess tasked with traversing various monuments by overcoming various illusions by rotating and actuating various parts of gorgeous structures. As relaxing as it is challenging, Monument Valley is a departure from the match 3 and bubble pop
3. Dice Smash
Much like the game 2048, Dice Smash is a free to play tile matching game. Here you tap squares in a path between matching ‘dice faces’ on a board as more and more dice faces pop up each turn. Once you match up two faces of ‘six’ the board absorbs what’s around that location making room for you continue the game as your score gets higher and higher. Make no mistake, this simple game is addictive once you get the hang of planning out where to make your matches to prolong your game session!
2. Bubble Witch 3 Saga
Beautifully animated and filled with cutesy and funny characters and moments, Bubble Witch 3 Saga is the next stage in the bubble shooter franchise by the makers of Candy Crush Saga. Filled with objectives, clever stages, and tons of freebie powerups, this edition of Bubble WItch is sure to captivate. New features like the aiming arrow, bubble switching, upgrading the witch house for power ups, and versus matches against friends make it one of the best free games on the market.
1. Toy Collapse
As the crown king of this list, Toy Collapse is a feature filled collapse puzzler filled with retro toys to tickle your nostalgia and exercise your brain. By touching and collapsing toy blocks of the same color that are connected vertically and/or horizontally, you run up your score and meet the various challenges that each toy collapsing stage presents you. Some toy blocks will be special requiring you to collapse the toy block more than once.
Toy Collapse’s objectives quickly ramp up the challenge level through the 200+ levels. At first you’ll meet simple goals like collapsing a numeric quota of a specific color of toy blocks. As the ease of doing so fades away, more actual toys of no specific color become the quota. You’ll have to strategize to collapse groups of toy blocks next to or underneath these toys in order to remove them from the board. Other times you’ll actually have to achieve powerup tiles like rockets, TNT triggers, and multi-colored balls that clear toys and blocks of ALL colors from the board. This is achieved by grouping 5 or more toy blocks of a specific color together and then collapsing them.
Going a step further, you’ll even earn and purchase powerups. Clearing levels grant you bonus coins. Coins can be used to purchase powerups like extra turns, clearing horizontal or vertical lines, and more. You’ll need all the help you can get as the challenges quickly get harder and harder every 10 levels or so.
Making your way through different stages and worlds, much like Candy Crush Saga, you will enjoy Toy Collapse for hours on end as an excellent game for adults and kids.
