No doubt destined to join the legendary ranks of the addictive puzzlers like Tetris, Columns, Dr. Mario and Bejeweled, here's TwistLink!
An array of tiles is presented in different colors and orientations (vertical, horizontal). Your task is align three or more tiles of the same color by tapping tiles to 'twist' them. Once the tiles are linked, they are cleared.
So, Twist, Link, Clear - got it? Ok, now comes strategy. Unsupported and new tiles will fall to fill the empty space. Should these tiles link up upon landing, they will also clear for a combo bonus! Each successive combo increases the bonus multiplier, so plan ahead for big scores!
The counters in the lower left side of the screen keeps track of how many links of 3, 4, or 5 tiles you've cleared. Once you've cleared 10 of a size, a bonus is awarded and the counter is reset.
Start off easy with just 3 colors to match. The difficulty will increase as later levels introduce new colors for a maximum of 5 possible colors on a board.
As you progress, new types of tiles will appear. The glimmering white tiles are good, allowing you to form a link with different colors.
The dark, dead tiles are bad and will not link with any tile.
Finally, the red, pulsating bomb tiles are...well, that depends. They're good because they can clear out a large section at once, including the dead tiles. They're bad because they may disrupt any combos you have planned out, and they don't count towards the link length counters.
And when you no longer have any moves available, submit your score online and see how you stack up to other TwistLink players worldwide!

What's New in Version 1.5.2
The 3-minute Time Attack mode is back!
Great to see the time attack is back, but there needs to be a way to turn the sound on/off (so I can listen to music in the background)
What a shame
What a shame that the developers are not maintaining this app. The concept is great. But no way to save high scores (the "plus" just crashes when you try to load it). Seems this app was just abandoned--but they took my 3 dollars!
Simple but fun
I like going to this one after playing a lot of heavier stuff. It's simple but good.
