In the match-three genre it's hard to find a title that can go up against the behemoth that is Bejeweled. While Candy Crush Saga seems to be doing just that by imitating PopCap's hit as closely as possible, other developers have to turn to innovation to distinguish themselves.
This is the route Inlogic Software has gone down with Swapper, offering a different take on the genre by framing the action through the eyes of a sorting robot.
Playing as said robot, you move left and right across a fixed rail reaching out and grabbing blocks as they descend from the top of the screen. Matching four or more in a line or any connecting shape clears it from the board.
A simple and fun tile-matching title that throws in some novel ideas but it won’t keep you hooked for more than a few minutes at a time
