If you miss a difference or tap incorrectly, your train will get delayed. If it gets delayed too much it will disappear from sight and the game will be over.

Aureus ($0.99 → Free, 32.7 MB): Match elements to produce gold in Aureus.

Take a good look at the board while it is lit up, because the lights will go out! You must then match elements to create electrical currents that will briefly illuminate the board, disintegrate the elements, and turn them into gold. While the board is briefly illuminated from creating a match, you will have another chance at seeing where elements are located and how they’re aligned. If you wind up not getting a good enough look, you can use a hint. The game includes three modes, loads of ways to upgrade your gold producing machine, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

The evil emperor has started a war no one ever wanted. Play as the hero and put a stop to it before it’s too late. The game combines the now standard match-three mechanic to allow you to build up your defenses, restore health, and attack your enemies. You’re able to swap tiles on the screen by tapping one and then tapping on an adjacent tile. You don’t have to always create matches when swapping tiles, which will come in handy to help you avoid creating matches for your enemy. The game includes eight stages, 37 enemies to battle, nine incarnations to summon, 32 types of equipment to unlock, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.

Devil Shard is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 52 ratings.
