If swiping board tiles feels too basic and one-dimensional, then here is a 3D match-three game that can really test your mettle. Behold a cosmic cube comprised of blocks that absorb whatever color is in the background. When that same color fills at least three adjacent blocks, they vanish. This mechanic will prove crucial for solving various objectives set across in over 20 puzzle challenges!

The cube only rotates on its own, which means positioning and timing are important. Some require you to beat a time limit while others require you to uncover a special cube hidden deep within. These challenges only keep mixing up with more obstacles while the cube is ever rotating. Earn energy points to apply effects that slow it down or offer other additional advantages. It is a game that opens a whole new dimension for match-three experts. Are you up for it?

▲ Use the background’s color to determine which cube to light up next!

▲ Clear away the blocks to achieve a variety of increasingly challenging objectives.

▲ Earn energy to buy power-ups and game-changing effects.

Spamming missiles and lasers isn’t the only way to take out a fleet of space ships. And in this intense puzzle shooter, you will get to see just how deadly a well-timed shot can be. Play the role of a ruthless mercenary whose mission is to stealthily take out whole convoys, one starship at a time.

Align the vertical and horizontal lines of your crosshairs until they are both fixed on the same target. Timing will be the key as every shot missed will cost your health. However, destroying all ships in a single wave will restore your health to full. It is also possible to take out a number of them in a chain and earn a hefty bonus for it.

It is a game that is less about having an intense firefight and more about practicing accuracy and efficiency. Rack up plenty of points to unlock other mercenaries who have additional power-up skills. These can further improve your strategy as your pit your sniping skills against even more elusive foes. Become a fearsome fleet destroyer and start lighting them up with only one shot!

▲ Exercise extreme precision as you align your crosshairs to hit even the smallest of targets.

▲ Earn points to unlock additional mercenaries with their own powerful skills.
