If you like Match-3 games, then Fluttabyes is the latest match to your query. The iOS app has been developed by Red Chain Games. The app is compatible with iPhone, iPod touch and iPad and requires iOS 6.1 or any later version of the OS. This app has also been optimized for iPhone 5, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.


Now what’s common with all Match-3 games is that you have to match certain number of different coloured items and then they vanish away making space for new ones to come and replace. Here again we have a similar concept. Fluttabyes is about helping butterflies flying away from the box they’re stuck in. So when you match four same-coloured butterflies, they’ll all fly away. The game continues this way and this was the basic gameplay. But the game offers multiple modes of gameplay.


First we have the survival mode where you’re fighting against time. So your moves have to be quick and agile. Plus, you’d get extra time for every match you make. So accuracy plays an important role in how long you are able to survive in this do-or-die world. Next we have the endless mode. Actually, it can be more appropriately dubbed as the “practice” mode because here you have no time limit and you can play as long as you want. So before entering any other mode, you must go through this one first and sharpen your skills. At least, you can get acquainted with how-to of the game. Drop mode tests your swimming skills against a storm. Here while you’re solving a puzzle, there’s a constant incoming flow of more butterflies and the rate keeps on increasing thereafter. Let’s see how far you can get.

Rush mode can be the most addictive because all you have is a 60-second time duration and you have to clear as much road as possible. It’s quick, fun and you can play it every time you have a short break. When the time window is small, the scores are always close. So beating your previous best would be a big challenge here.


Apart from single player modes, they also have a multiplayer mode which you can access through the Game Center. Play against other players and find out if you can match up to the skills of the no. 1 rank holder or not.

Fluttabyes puts on display a very bright, colourful and lurid side that many of you would admire and cherish. The game is not intended only for children but yes, it’d certainly enjoy a fan-following among the young children for its flashy graphics and “butterflies”. The animations work smoothly and everything works fine. The gameplay with so many different modes is sure to hold your hands for a long time.

The app is available for $1.99 in the App store.

Pros: match-3; bright, lurid and colourful graphics; multiple gameplay modes; free butterflies; multiplayer.

Cons: none.

I will give this app 4.5 out of 5 stars.
