Break jewels like a king in Pawn'd! Match-3 meets Chess.

"Gameplay: 5/5" -

"Pawn’d is a match 3 game that aims to make things a little bit different, and it succeeds greatly." -

"Bejeweled has just been PAWN'D!" - "Lork Gek" App Store Review

"An absolute must buy for fans of chess games, match-3 games, or fans of innovative genre blending games." -

This addictive game combines the strategic thinking and unique moves of chess with fun, gem-shattering, puzzle-game action. Each piece has simple but unique moves inspired by chess and perfected for match-game action.

Several modes of game play provide unique challenges. Can you break the poisoned piece in a just a few moves? How long can you keep playing while finding only matches of 4 or more? Can you fight off the ivy growing over the board? Tired of deep thought? Try matching as many pieces as you can before time runs out!

Never played chess? No problem! Fun practice games and touch-a-piece hints make it easy to pick up...and even harder to put down.

Simple to play, but tough to master. Are you ready to get Pawn'd?

Actually a new twist on Match-3 that works!

Great game! Great Idea!

It seems like such a simple idea... just do a Match-3 but have the movements done through chess piece movements. But with most simple ideas, you never thought about it until someone else creates it and you go, "Whoa, I should have thought of that!".

This is the case with Pawn'd. There is a lot of fun strategy in this game and the four modes included with the game each give you a different way to play the same basic game.

The only item on my wish list right now is to have a multi-player type/Puzzle Quest type of game with this. It would be great to play against someone and try to capture pieces. Please, please, please... add something like this to the game. But if not... it's still a great game and should be a "must play" for anyone who likes match-3/puzzle/chess/pick-up and play/or just any well done game...

Pick it up today.

I'm P'woned

I can't explain how much I enjoy this game. I happened onto it on my laptop and when I found out that I could get it for my iPad I just had to. I was even willing to pay for it for the iPad when I got it free on my laptop just so I could take it with me when I wasn't taking my laptop and just my iPad. It is multiple puzzle games at once that is a puzzle game like bejeweled, but adds the extra challenge of chess aspects of how the pieces are able to move. It is challenging and I just adore it!

A Must Download!

I absolutely love this game! Fast game play, many different modes, great graphics and on and on and on.

I could go on all day about the greatness of this app, but really you have to see for yourself. It's a must download for Match 3 fanatics. Especially ones that love a twist instead of the same old gem matching.

I can't recommend this one highly enough!!
