Mobile games developer Vella Games has announced it will be launching Emoji Match 4 on the Apple App Store this week.
The game is a spin on the popular ‘match’ puzzle genre, with the chosen emoji characters among the most commonly used emojis worldwide.
Users are challenged to match four or more emojis while trying to avoid other emojis which cost the player points.
In every level, users can use a certain amount of ‘moves’ to match four or more of a specific emoji. Users will also need to reach a set amount of points to successfully finish a level.
As a bonus, users earn ‘thumbs up’ by beating levels and they can then use these thumbs to mix-up the playing board when they are stuck.
There are over 100 challenging levels to beat with more to be added in the future. Users can play alone or compete with users from all over the world via Facebook.
To celebrate the release of Emoji Match 4, Vella Games has also created a free iMessage Sticker Pack (iOS 10+) featuring the core characters of the game. The sticker pack is included with the app and directly available after downloading the app.
Emoji Match 4 for iPhone and iPad is available on the App Store 9 September.
