Great puzzle game!
Overall this is a highly polished and fun puzzle game that expands nicely on the normal match 3 style games. Of course there are a few annoyances, which make it from reaching five stars. What I have found most annoying is that there is no way to turn off Open Feint integration; it is not a service that I use and I would like to be able to get rid of it after accidentally clicking on it in game. I also would like to see some more casual style modes as it seems to get too difficult too quickly. It is definitely a game that becomes better with experience with it, however sometimes a less frantic game option would be nice.
None of this makes the game not worth getting however, especially as it is free, but I hope that it will mature and improve even more in the future!
180 is not your typical match-3 game; it is a match-3 game with an unique coin-flipping mechanism. This brings a lot more strategy into the game, and you will find yourself constantly debating whether to clear the coins now or to wait for the coins to line up for a killer combo.
The latest update polished up the game some more and added a new icon due to negative feedback surrounding the previous one, which shows the developer does care about its fanbase and pays attention to even the details. If you have any suggestions or problems with this game, feel free to join in the ongoing discussion of 180 at the Touch Arcade forums, where the HeadcaseGames regularly posts at.
Overall an excellent game, definitely worth buying.
I love playing match-3 games as long as they accomplish something unique and fun and NOT BORING (like bejeweled.) 180 definitely fits the bill! Fairly innocuous name for a game, didn't catch my eye at first until I read reviews on TA forums. Production polish is top-notch with cute sparkly graphics, responsive touch controls, intuitive gameplay, several game modes, and OpenFeint integration. Playing this game is frantic but not overwhelmingly urgent, allowing the player to plan ahead for high score attacks. The much overused "addictive" really applies to this game...I'm about to play after I hit submit. Try the lite if you have doubts but I suggest you do yourself a favor and buy the full now :-)
