Look, naming is hard.
I've been wanting a good infinite match-3 for a while so I figured I'd try my hand at it. The twist here is that you select pieces to remove, not to swap. In order to keep some pressure on, there's still a turn counter -- you lose a turn when you remove a piece, but you get one back every time you match three, and two back if you match at least five. So if you move efficiently you can keep it going for a while (but more piece types will start showing up after a few boards to make it harder).
This can still get a little tight in the early levels, I'm working on tuning that, but if you lose on the first board you just got unlucky.
Good call. I was worried about the animation feeling too slow (which I see in demo match-3 games all the time and drives me crazy), but I'll fiddle with it. And yeah, agreed about some clearer "these blocks are disappearing now" signal. Thanks!
