It has a name…..Space Blast! My Match 3 / Candy Crush clone is now named Space Blast and is available to play now via web browsers here! You can also play it on Android by installing Space Blast from the Google Play Store! I am still working on getting in available on iPhone, iPad. I’ll update this post with links to the app when it is available there.

Given another week I would have built a level generator to generate the levels for me and gradually increase the difficulty, and introduce new “special” pieces over time.
