App Review: Matchington

by Skye Finnestad

Looking for a simpler version of “Candy Crush”? “Matchington” is easier, and much more fun than “Candy Crush”. This game is set in an old mansion and each time you beat a level the mansion gets a little prettier and more fixed up! The point of the game is to match colored cushions in a row of three or more in order to beat the level. As you move further into the game the levels become harder. In some cases you need to free mice and in others you need to open boxes and remove the product within them. You can accomplish this by matching cushions right next to the specified objects. This game allows you five lives, each time you fail a level a life is lost. The life takes ten minutes to refill once again. After a level is passed, the player is rewarded with coins and a star! Stars are used to fulfill missions listed for players. These missions range from introducing yourself to the neighbors, changing floorboards and wallpaper, to buying new furniture for the house! The game is quite exciting and addictive. Another amazing thing about this game is ads are optional! If you choose to double your rewards or earns extra coins, you can watch an ad to do so! The game is wonderful because there is no buffering, no crashing, and no forced ads. “Matchington” is also simple enough to be addicting, yet challenging enough to where it is not boring. I wish I had some sort of suggestion, but the game is perfect just the way it is. I’d easily give it five out of five stars. “Matchington” definitely deserves a chance from everyone!
