To no one's surprise, Disney has released a Star Wars themed match-3 puzzler

I don't know why, but apparently every franchise out there just has to shoehorn its name onto a match-3 puzzle game. We get it, Candy Crush made a ton of money, but can we please move on from this tired genre already? Sadly, it would appear that Disney thinks not. In their latest attempt to cash in on the property they have released Star Wars: Puzzle Droids, a match-3 puzzle game.

[Bad News Everyone] Futurama: Game Of Drones Is The Worst Kind Of Licensed Mobile Game

Here at Android Police, we monitor a truly insane amount of sites and developers to bring you the latest apps and games fresh from the Play Store. And in serving that duty, sometimes we come across games that don't deserve any attention. More often than not, in fact, and some of the most depressing are games that exploit a beloved TV, movie, or video game license and use it to try and sling the same homogenized crap as ten thousand copycat game developers looking for a quick buck. A lot of these seem to be Candy Crush or Bejeweled clones: we passed over Pac-Man Puzzle Tour just yesterday (Artem literally wrote "ughhhhhh" in the office chat), and Star Trek: Wrath of Gems is such a shameless cash-grab that it makes trekkies spit out their Romulan ale.

[New Game] The Official Godzilla Movie Tie-In Is A Match 3 Puzzle Game, Obviously

Godzilla is a giant, city-destroying monster that challenges us to ponder the fragility of life and the horrors of mass destruction. A 2014 adaptation is hitting theaters now, which means a movie tie-in game is destined to hit the Play Store. What do we have this time? A brawler? A first-person shooter? A side-scroller crammed with in-app purchases? No, silly. It's a match 3 puzzle game.

Somewhat surprisingly, this was a good decision. Godzilla Smash3 contains more depth than initially meets the eye. The core gameplay may consist of matching three or more orbs of the same color, but the board hovers atop an action-filled background.
