Bee Brilliant is a match-3 puzzler with quite possibly the best theme song ever

Are you ready for barbershop quartet awesomeness? I really don't think you are, because this level of barbershop awesomeness is pretty much unprecedented. Bee Brilliant is a new puzzler that's made by Tactile Entertainment (them what did Skyline Skaters and Chasing Yello) and it looks just lovely. It's a match-3 puzzler with a colourful, cheerful aesthetic, and I'm sure it'll make the company a billion dollars. But what caught my eye... well... ear actually... is the theme tune for the game, which you can hear right now by clicking play on the video below. Want to give Bee Brilliant a try? Here's the link to the App Store, where the game is free-to-play. [App Store link]…

Here's the game in motion. Incandescence is free, and available right now on iOS, Android, and Windows Phone. [App Store link][Google Play link][Windows Phone Store link]  …
