Match Masters Review!

“Play LIVE with friends OR against opponents from all over the world in Match Masters! 

Players take turns playing against each other on the same match-3 game board, so they must take into account not only the score they will get from their moves but also the opportunities it could create for their opponent!

— AWESOME POWERUPS —

Every blue star you match charges your Booster, while your opponent collects red circles.

Use your Booster to gain more scores, tip the game in your favor, make satisfying comebacks and score huge combos!

Play with one of 20+ available Boosters, each with its own strategy and effect.”

Gameplay

Play in matches to score the most points!

If you’re bored of your typical match-3 games, this might just be for you! Adding a new twist to the genre you know and love, Match Masters allows you to play against real people in real time. I’ve never seen gameplay quite like this before, and I was very excited to play!

When I review match-3 games, I find they’re very similar with not much that makes them stand out from others – until now. PvP is one of my favorite genres as I know I’ve beaten real people rather than just bots. It feels so much more rewarding!

The aim of the match is to get the most points by the end of the match by matching as many colored gems as possible!

Graphics

The graphics are basic!

Although the gameplay is unique, the graphics aren’t.

I enjoyed how the characters were all animals including the host – I feel like that added a nicer touch than having cartoon humans.

Music & Sounds

Unfortunately, the characters don’t speak. They make noises but you have to read the script that comes out of the speech bubble. I feel like talking in games always helps with the quality of the game, so I’m disappointed.

However, I liked the upbeat background audio that made me feel like I was in a real game show!

Controls

Swipe to match-3!

Like other match-3 games, you just have to swipe 3 or more gems in a row to earn points. There are also power-ups at the bottom of the screen if you struggle. However, I found it pretty easy to get through most of the levels without any help!

The Verdict

What did you think?!

Match Masters gets a solid 4 out of 5 from me. I don’t usually rate match-3 games this high but as this had PvP gameplay sprinkled into it, I couldn’t help but love it. This is definitely one I’m going to keep playing.
