With so many Apps coming out each day - some from major companies, most from independent groups - it's easy to miss some real gems. Love Love by Bambalam is a diamond that shouldn't be passed over if you love puzzle match titles.

In a similar vein to Dr Mario inspired games, blocks enter the screen as paired groups using each of the primary colors (red, yellow and blue) or a gray 'broken heart'. Matches are made by joining 4 or more same colored blocks directly, however there's an additional challenge thrown in as placing mismatched blocks next to each other will cause the surrounding blocks to have their colored 'mixed'. This adds the possibility of green, purple, orange and even white blocks for bonus points.

The game's graphics are smooth, simple and serene, using minimal special effects to convey the action on screen. The background softly sways and transitions in color while relaxing background music keeps the mood sedate as you calmly tap, drag and flick each block in to place. At first players may be overwhelmed by the idea of maintaining color purity to score points, but the slow game pace lets you learn at your own pace and even stumble in to a few major matches.

It's not hard to get lost in a single game of Love Love and like any great addictive title you'll be back for more before you know it. A great addition to anyone's casual title collection.
