I think Snack Match's narrative may just be the best video game story ever made. Unfortunately, being a casual game, it never really gets into the plot, so I'll outline it here.
You are Ralff, a fun-time party dog with a near-limitless selection of funky eyewear in his wardrobe, and who absolutely adores chowing down on snacks. Chicken drumsticks, steak chops, luminous green biscuit bones, and simple food in a blue bowl are just a few of his favourite things, and it's your job to give them to him.
To do this you line up three or more of the same foodstuff to create a chain, which then removes them from play. These foodstuffs are to be found on a slowly moving play area that scrolls constantly to the right.
Small and satisfying - just as any good treat should be - Snack Match is a brilliant bit of bite-sized gaming, let down by a lack of imagination in its gameplay systems and slow load times
