Falling brick games like Tetris never go out of style, and Light Byte is a delightful addition to the genre.
It's a fairly simple premise - coloured blocks cascade from the top of the screen and you have to match two or more of the same colour to remove them and earn points. If you're slow to react, the blocks will hit the bottom of the screen, spelling Game Over.
Chaining together blocks earns you point bonuses. Matching eight of the same colour unlocks a brief bout of Frenzy mode, wherein you get to remove all the blocks you can tap.
Light Byte is a fantastic colour-matching game that increases in complexity and fun as you play
