Shape Matcher is a lovely free online bejeweled game which teaches you how to come up with a strategy when you are playing these types of games. If you are new to these games, you may only be making matching shapes in order to see them explode and get out of the game, but with this particular game, you have to learn how to come up with a strategy. You are supposed to remove all the black tiles from the game before you can move to another level. If you simply remove tiles haphazardly, the timer will shut the game down before you have completed. You have to learn how to scan the board and see where particular shapes are and then see how you can move them towards a particular corner. There is one part that can only accommodate two shapes, so identical tiles have to be brought to a vertical position above the two, so that they can be removed. This is where the formation of a strategy comes in handy. Apart from the formulation of a strategy, you also learn how to go around obstructions. There are blocks in some levels, and you will have to come up with a way of getting the tiles to be removed from the areas that these blocks have hidden. This is a challenging game since it is also timed. The timer is divided into three, each with a higher star level, beginning from a single star. The star level that you complete in will determine the bonus points that you will be awarded. The use of bombs and other features will also earn you bonus points, despite having removed many shapes, when you use them. This is an exciting game, and the shapes are animated making it more enticing to play.
