Marshmallow 2×2 is a simplistic number game that mixes gameplay combination rules from 2048 with the simple moving mechanics of match 3 titles. Available for iOS and Android devices this simple title is a relaxing experience.
Gameplay happens on the colourful 4 by 4 grid which is filled with coloured number circles. To advance the game and your score players need to make matches of two circles that share the same number, by doing so you’ll create a new circle equal to their combined value at which point a new basic number will spawn in (the lowest possible number without making a match).
Players can move any of the four rows or columns in order to make matches just be swiping so games can often go on for some time with careful planning due to this flexibility. Players compete against themselves through the best score located at the top of the screen and the milestone alerts which pop up whenever you reach a new high for your coloured number.
The game ends when players are unable to make any more moves at which point you can share a game screenshot to brag about your highest number combination. Mastering the internal game mechanics is key to reaching the higher numbers which mostly involves understanding the order in which matches are made and chaining matches together.
Overall Marshmallow 2×2 is a well designed matching game with simplistic presentation and great colour popping sounds although its lack of features will keep you from playing it more than a few times.
