A genre Linux surprisingly doesn't have a huge selection in is Match 3 puzzle games, thankfully if you love these casual games a new one is out with Tower Of God: One Wish. Note: Key provided by the developer.
Not quite your standard drag and match though, Tower Of God has multiple mini-games in between some of the main Match 3 levels to space them out and it's actually pretty good. Nice to see another Match 3 land on Linux that attempts to do something a little different.
Plenty of nice touches to it for players of all skill levels too. You can play it in Endless mode for a true casual and relaxing experience, a Timed mode to race against a clock or have a go at the Limited mode to see if you can crack it with limited moves. When matching tiles up, it does mix in some fun elements on the board you need to deal with too. Some tiles need breaking for example, which can only be done by matching next to them.
The multiple ways to play, mixed with the mini-games makes it a good choice if you usually enjoy Match 3 games. You can find Tower Of God on itch.io and Steam for some casual relaxing fun.
Quoting: TiedemannI'm addicted to match-3 so will def get this one too.Then you could also try Stones of the Gods - an old game but it has pretty graphics and nice music. The only problem is it hasn't been updated since 2011, so the Linux version only works on really old distros. But at least the source code is available. :D And the Windows version, although slightly behind the Linux one, works great with Wine - if you want to give it a quick look. :)
