More details on Tilt & Swipe:

Do you love playing match 3 games and wanted to play a brand new take on the genre, Tilt & Swipe is for you. Tilt & Swipe offers hours of addictive gameplay and new challenges unique to the game due to the controls only offered on handheld mobile devices.

Different coloured blocks have different point values so getting a high score requires more strategy than just removing all the blocks. Use the joker carefully to remove difficult blocks but also to boost your score with big multipliers. A Finesse bonus is awarded if long lines of blocks are removed in quick succession. Combinations of different shaped blocks unlock special awards and get extra points.

If you have haptic feedback on your Android device then you will be amazed at how realistically it simulates the feel of the blocks bumping into one another. Rich 3D graphics, a cool original soundtrack and an online score table add to the package.

Key Features:

Amazing natural movement of balls in a box. With haptic feedback turned on you can even feel the balls knocking against one another

Simple and intuitive control system which is easy to learn but tricky to master

Colour scoring system and look of the game inspired by snooker
