Panda Swap, the furry match-3 from PID Games and DaddyHippo, is out now for both iOS and Android. You play as a fluffy panda embarking on an exciting adventure with her dragon BFF in the lovely provinces of China. The vivid art style and colourful 3D environments lend to the energetic vibe of the game, and, as expected of the genre, completing levels is immensely satisfying with all the bells and whistles.
What makes Panda Swap unique is that it lets you rotate the whole grid however way you want to because sometimes, the solution simply lies in viewing the problem from a different perspective. You can swap tiles diagonally, rotate the grid, and pop your way through a whopping 50 levels in total, with various environments and a relaxing soundtrack.
You can also nab boosters and set off explosions to maximize your score, making sure to collect all three stars for each level. Plus, you can unlock recipes and different ingredients from chests obtained throughout the game. These extra goodies let you cook Chinese, Japanese, and Korean dishes to add a little spice to the game.
Panda Swap will feature regular content updates to make sure that players never get tired of helping Panda protect their temple’s artifacts from the no-good mischief-makers in the land. The mesmerizing background score that serenades you as you play the game is reminiscent of Ancient China, so stringing all those similarly coloured tiles together is as relaxing as ever.
