So basically every gaming blog in the universe has mentioned the iOS match-3/RPG hybrid 10000000 already, but I thought I’d mention it, too. It’s a pretty cool little game in the general vein of Puzzle Quest or Dungeon Raid.
You’re some dude trapped in a castle; your goal is to earn ten million points and escape. To do this, you’ve got to delve into a dungeon, which takes the form of a series of obstacles- match keys to open chests and drawers; match swords or staves to attack monsters. You’re on a time limit, but as you go you’ll earn gold, experience, wood, and stone which you can use to upgrade your castle and statistics. Meeting specific goals- using a certain number of items or getting a certain number of 5-tile matches, for example- eventually unlocks higher difficulty levels, which have a larger multiplier that’s applied to your score.
It’s a fun little game; better than the sluggish iPhone implementation of Puzzle Quest 2, and definitely a good way to spend my morning commute. It runs $2, and reaching the 10000000-point goal took me just about 5 hours of playtime total.
