Looks fantastic. Superb work on the visuals. :)
I have to say though that the collapsing is way too fast and unadorned. Part of the pleasure of a match-3 game is seeing the matched tiles highlight and poof or explode or whatever. In this I see entire sections of the screen disappear and I don't even know what happened beyond the one match I deliberately set up.
Even something as simple as blinking in an empty plate for a few frames would probably suffice to draw the eye to the next match so the player can appreciate it.
(If you think some people prefer it fast, you could always add an item to the pause menu to toggle animations.)
