Description

Smiley Pops is a match three puzzle game similar to games like Hexic and Bejeweled Twist. The player is presented with a board full of smiley faces of different colours. The aim of the game is to create a line of three or more smilies of the same colour. This is done by rotating a group of three adjecent smilies. Once a match is made the smilies are removed from the board and others fall down and take their place. In addition to the smilies there are also rocks that are unmovable. These can't be swapped and are removed when they reach the bottom of the board. The player can shake the phone to instantly destroy all the rocks as well as number of random smilies.

Three game modes are available: skilled, time attack and freestyle. Skilled and time attack modes use a progress bar as level systems. At the start of a level it is half filled up and decreases with time in the time attack mode and for every swap in the skilled mode. The bar increases as the player scores points and once it's full the player levels up. Points are earned for each smiley and rock that is removed. For bonus points the player can create combos (removing smilies of several colours at once) and chain (removing smilies in cascade) events. In the freestyle mode there is no progress bar and player can play at his own pace.

The game uses the Scoreloop service for online high score lists.
