Godzilla – Smash 3
Godzilla – Smash 3 is a movie-licensed Action & Puzzle game where you control Godzilla to battle the MUTOs from the film by mastering the match-3 skills. By making matches of differently colored tiles you control Godzilla to stomp, bite or slash enemies in the 3D cityscape. It’s pick-up & play but hard-to-master.

As the highly anticipated Godzilla movie hits theaters, its official game called Godzilla – Smash 3 also arrives at iOS and Android bringing you into another battlefield where you help Godzilla with your match-3 skills to pursue the MUTOs.
Godzilla – Smash 3 combines two popular genres together: the hard-hitting action and match-3 puzzler. Accordingly, in-game interface is divided into the 3D battle zone and the play board. You have several types of tiles on the board which represent different energies of Godzilla and by matching them you control Godzilla to stomp, attack, bite or release its signature atomic breath. Easy to pick up, it contains decent strategies given the great variety of enemy types and the restrictive relationship in battle.
Godzilla – Smash 3 has 80 customized levels to play as you command Godzilla to pursue enemies across land, sea and air. And by connecting Facebook, you can socialize with friends, aiding them n a fight or challenge them to a duel. The battle zone is rendered full 3D. Small sized as it is, the visuals are awesome, especially when there is mass destruction with crumbling and fire.
From graphics & sounds to action & puzzle fusion Godzilla – Smash 3 does a good job. But it’s moot whether this kind of play is what Godzilla fans expect of “the official game” for the movie. Also, with many “smash-3” titles like Puzzle Trooper and Jewel Fight: Heroes of Legend on the market, the initially “new” experience grows pale, which gives a minus in terms of originality.
If you are looking for role-playing action in the Godzilla franchise, there is Godzilla: Strike Zone released 10 days ago for iOS & Android.
