App of the Day: Monster Flip

There are many match-three games out there, but none of them are like Monster Flip.

Welcome to CNET Australia's App of the Day, where you can see some of the coolest, silliest and most useful apps in action.

Match-three games? It's pretty hard to beat Bejeweled, but our new favourite is Monster Flip. It's not just because of the cute little monster cubes, although they're pretty awesome: it's because it brings some brilliant new elements to match-three gameplay. Firstly, it's not about swapping two gems. If you have a monster in line with a match, you can flip it over — but the catch is that it has to be at least three squares away. This can lead to some pretty tricky gameplay as, sometimes, you have to first navigate the monster AWAY from the match before bringing him home.
