QUALITY
 

LAST TEMPLE HD isn't just another Bejeweled clone, but brings some fun twists to the match-3 formula. Instead of swapping adjacent gems, players create strings of tiles by dragging a finger across them to connect as many as possible. Once a tile has been swapped, the area underneath it turns blue, and players must turn the whole board blue to advance to the next level. Difficulty increases gradually as new elements are added, such as locked and slimed tiles, magic spells, various power-ups, and bonus levels where the goal is to collect a certain number of skulls. The ancient temple theme isn't terribly unique, but the fun and fast-paced gameplay and sheer length -- nearly 200 levels -- makes up for it.
