Introduction

Match-3 puzzle games are hot for all ages—simple and easy to learn and play. They are good for fun and entertainment, but sometimes can be addictive when players are challenging themselves for higher scores or better results.

Computer programs make these games interesting by introducing variety: you can match 3 jewels, 3 coins, 3 colors or any other three objects in a row, horizontally or vertically, by swapping or firing them.

Match-3 games were made popular with a few commercial products launched way back when. The good news is that now there are many free programs available for download or playing online. They are equally good in design and quality as their commercial forebears.
