Buy Gemmed! Lite on the App Store

Gemmed! Lite Sparkles in the Match-Three Genre

I remember when dating used to be simple. Considering that I’m a guy, it was my job to deliver a good time while being a perfect gentleman. That part was easy enough as several articles and books have been written for guys that are clueless in matters of love and relationships.

I generally like bubble puzzle shooting games like Snood, so I was looking forward to playing I-play's Bubble Town. What I came away with was the thought that the developer tried to shove a game into a platform that it is ill suited for.
