TetroMatchPro (and its free version TetroMatch) is the second game in the trilogy of entertaining pattern recognition games created by Exideas. The other two are: MatchMatch (currently on the iTunes Store) and FibuMatch, (coming soon).
TetroMatchPro uses the familiar tetrominoes, geometric shapes composed of four connected squares. These shapes move up and down the sides of the screen during the game.
Play it with two thumbs, or play it one handed. Either way, you are supposed to tap and match identical tetraminoes. You start by matching simple ones, but as the game progresses, the number of colors used in each shape increases, requiring more of your attention. At the same time, the higher the number of colors, the higher the score of each match.
You play in stages of 30 seconds, which present you with increasingly more colorful shapes.
You are given five lives to start with. If you accidentally mismatch two shapes, or if you don’t get enough points at each stage, you lose a life. But if you persevere, after each ten thousand points, you regain a life back. So even if you lose a life inadvertently, you have a chance to get it back and continue.
The game keeps your top ten scores, and lets you compare them with the top scores of everyone in the world.
