Match-three of your five-a-day
by Paul Devlin 18/2/2013
Product: Fruit Pop!
Format: Android, iPhone, iPad
Genre: Casual, Puzzle
If Bejeweled represents the respectable, motherly side of the casual chaining genre and Triple Town is its quirky teenage offspring, then Fruit Pop! is the eager-to-please visiting nephew of the match-three family.
Beyond being able to pre-select power-ups before each round, there's precious little that's new here, and omitting online leaderboards is a strange move. As a result, it's hard to get more than a little hooked on this colourful little newcomer.
It doesn't take the match-three genre anywhere new, but this casual puzzler has cheery charm that makes for a decent snack between serious games
