With the new Godzilla movie on the horizon, we were expecting a monster of a game to emerge from the ocean of the App Store. Not to disappoint, developer Rogue Play has unleashed Godzilla - Smash3, a free-to-play match-three puzzler.
Never ones to run from danger, we have thrown ourselves headlong into the game’s monstrous maw. Taking control of the massive reptile, we advanced on the worlds cities, wiping out all manner of military defences.
The top of the screen shows Godzilla’s path of destruction in full 3D, allowing us pick and choose our targets. You must control his attacks by matching coloured shapes on the grid beneath.
This match-three gameplay follows a similar structure to other puzzle RPGs, allowing you to activate different attack types by tracing over three or more tiles of the same type. As you move through the levels new gamplay elements are pasted on, such as rubble tiles which clog up the board.
Ultimately, Godzilla - Smash3 is a fairly standard match three game. But, as its free, it's probably worth a try if you like matching colours, or seeing kaiju swatting attack helicopters away like mosquitoes.
