Water, wind, life, fire, and earth elements populate your screen. Drag your finger across adjacent matching elements to connect three or more and remove them from the board. If you’re having troubles matching, you can mash the elements down with the tap of a button. Asteroids will also enter your screen, and you can remove them by including them in your matches. You’ll want to remove them as quickly as possible because they will speed up your timer. The game also allows you to unlock power-ups, which can help you remove specific elements from the board.

You can pull the emergency brake to slow things down for a bit when things get hectic and get your thoughts straight. The game includes eight environments, iCloud integration, and achievements and leaderboards via Game Center.
