The app store is filled to the brim with match-three games--variations on a classic formula that offer varying degrees of originality. That said, there are some that really pull it off--providing a unique experience that is at once familiar and new enough to warrant hours of time invested in it. Tap 'n' Pop Classic is such a game, albeit with a handful of issues that can make it frustrating in some circumstances.

The game is immediately familiar to any match-three players. You're shown numerous balloons of different colors. Tap a cluster of two or more (it's more of a match 2 than match 3) and then tap again to pop them. The goal is to pop enough balloons and uncover prizes and hidden items to move to the next level. The screen does not refill with balloons until you clear a level, and there are modifiers that allow you to change balloon colors, a tool that can be used to great effect as you move to higher levels. The game is actually very well constructed and a lot of fun to play, even if it's not always 100 percent clear what you are doing or why you are doing it. The lack of tutorial and the cluttered menus can be frustrating at times, but for those that figure out the basic mechanics, there is a lot to enjoy here.

Tap 'n' Pop Classic is a great game. It may have some flaws, but at its core it does everything it is supposed to do quite well and it can be immensely entertaining, especially as you move to higher levels. It does need some work, but for those willing to look past the flaws, it is quite enjoyable.

Developer's Description

Tap 'n' Pop is one of the most popular classics for the iPhone.
Tap 'n' Pop is one of the most popular classics for the iPhone. Rotate, shake and tap your device, pop the balloons, use the power ups in this fun and challenging game. Shake your iPhone to reset colours. Very useful when you are running out of moves. You only get a few at the beginning though. Some user comments. "Poppit with a twist. can't stop playing." "Fun game played just like pop it on pogo. a must have game". "Brilliant game. REVEAL PACKAGES. Pop groups of colored balloons to clear and reveal packages containing various items. Reveal all items to reach the next level. HOW TO PLAY. Tap once to select the group of same colored balloons you want to pop (balloons will start pulsating) - tap again to pop the balloons. Balloons below the removed ones will move up to fill the empty space. Package will be revealed if no balloons are covering it. ROTATE YOUR DEVICE. Rotate your iPhone and balloons will move up - re-arranging positions and helping you out when you think you are getting close to not having any moves left. You have limited number of "rotations", but you earn new one each time you complete a level. If you run out of rotations, but rotate your device anyway - balloons will simply be rotated along giving you the same layout as before rotation. USE THE PIN. When you find yourself in a "tight spot" - use one of your pins to pierce any balloon that's in your way. Pins are hard to come by so use them wisely.
