Top 5 Match-Three Puzzlers on iPad

Best ways to clear a screen on iPad

Block-based puzzlers are nothing new. From that glorious moment when the first row-dissolving tetromino slotted into place, gamers were hooked on the thrill of clearing a screen against the clock.

One of the most popular offshoots of the Tetris phenomenon is the match-three genre. A concept so simple that its title tells you pretty much all you need to know, it has found a good and fitting home on touchscreen devices.

To help purge your display of unwanted app icons, we have brought you the only complementary set you'll ever need: the Qi Top 5 match-three puzzlers on iPad.

You might want to leave a gap between the shortcuts, though.

An exemplary entry into the match-three genre, and a significant step-up from its predecessor, 10tons beautifully presented sequel combines engaging puzzle gameplay with a visually impressive fantasy narrative. A pentagon-peppered delight.

Part tower-builder, part colour-matcher, this completely barmy offering from Adult Swim brings a healthy dose of surrealism to a generally level-headed genre. If rainbow unicorns and crabs with tugboat hats are your bag, look no further.

Bringing a new dimension to the match-three genre (literally), FreshGames's orally-fixed block-arranging title has you exploring the vertical as well at the horizontal. Inventive, engaging, and a little bit weird. But in a good way.

One of the most popular mobile games of 2011, Spry Fox's city-building / match-three mash-up was something of an overnight success. News of the addictive power this elegantly simple puzzler wields would have spread quicker, had critics been able to stop playing it long enough to write their reviews.
