Totemo is a match 3 style puzzle game where you must help the witch doctor free trapped spirits from an evil spell by vertically or horizontally matching rows of contiguous spirits until none are left on the game board.

The controls for the game are easy to use with players only needing to tap the screen to make their selections and unlike typical match 3 games, players may also be required to match between two to four spirits depending on the level requirement. This provides an challenging twist to the game as some levels will only have one solution and players must think carefully before placing their move. If you make a mistake however, you can simply shake your iPhone to reset the level and start over.

The game also offers two game modes, “Story mode” where players solve puzzles at their own pace and “Survival mode” where players must race against the clock as solve as many puzzles as they can in a given time limit. Scores from survival mode are submitted to online leader boards where players can see how they rate against other players from around the world.

Although the soundtrack is a little creepy, the graphics for the game are sensational with smooth animation and a flawless blend of brightly coloured sprites and dark shaded backgrounds allowing for much easier gameplay.

Totemo is equally charming as it is addictive and is a definite must have for anyone who is a fan of puzzle games or looking for something fun and challenging to try.
