[prMac.com] Guadalajara, Mexico - Happy Nutz Studio today is pleased to introduce Super Match Elements 2.0 for iPad, an update to their innovative, free, match 3 game, now including a multiplayer mode. As in classic match 3 games like Bejeweled, 3 or more elements in a row or column clears them from the board. However, Super Match Elements allows players to make moves that clear no pieces, adding a strategic element to gameplay. The game features: a free Basic Game; 60 Puzzle Levels; 5 Game Modes- Puzzles, Endless, Survival, Specials, and Multiplayer; 3 Difficulty Levels in each mode; 1, 2, 3, or 4 players; and Turn-based or Rush multiplayer options. Puzzle levels beyond Basic are available as an in-app purchase.
Super Match Elements represents a highly evolved specimen of the match 3 game genus. As always, there are different elements arranged in a rectangular matrix, and the object is to move one element each turn, with the goal of creating 3 or more of the same elements in a row or column, which causes them all to be removed from the board, gaining points for the player. Super Match Elements employs a variety of colorful, spherical icons as elements: earth, air, fire, water, metal, plant, rock, plasma, etc. Elements may be arranged in many different sizes of matrix, 2x10, 6x6, or 8x12, etc. The game allows players to move one element per turn, and they may move elements to any new position, even if such a move results in no matches being created. Other elements slide over to fill the gap created when an element is moved.

During play in Puzzle mode, where removed elements are not replaced by new elements, it is possible to reach an ending where it is impossible to remove all the elements from the board, because there are only 1 or 2 of that element remaining. In such cases, the game notifies the player, and they may try again. At advanced levels, non-matching moves are necessary to clear the board, and the Specials mode contains particularly challenging puzzles. Endless mode challenges the player to continue making matches as new elements are continuously falling into the matrix. The game ends when the matrix becomes filled. In Survival mode the player is challenged to match the electrified elements (animated with lightning bolts) before they go through 3 phases of criticality and explode.
"Super Match Elements was released in July, 2010, and by August the game was in the top 6 free iPad apps, and the top 2 free games in the US," commented Owner Victor Padilla. "Now, with Version 2.0 we have introduced Multiplayer gameplay and added multi-tasking so you can play while listening to music from other apps."
