Match three games have always been a favorite of mine. In this list, I am going to explain what my favorite match three games are and why I like playing them so much.
If I have reviewed the game on AndroidGamingFox, I will give a link so you can read a more in-depth review.

#10 Angry Birds Pop
I wrote an Angry Birds Pop review on AndroidGamingFox.
Angry Birds Pop used to be my favorite Angry Birds game. I don’t play the game as much anymore, but I still enjoy the game occasionally.
The game is fun to play, and I love the different characters and powerups. I also like how the game looks, and I love the music in the game.
While there are many bubble shooter type games, Angry Birds Pop is one of my favorites.
#9 Candy Crush Soda Saga
I wrote a Candy Crush Soda Saga review on AndroidGamingFox.
I like Candy Crush Soda Saga much more than any other Candy Crush game. It is one of my favorite match-three games. That is why it is number 5 on this list.
Out of all of the games King has made, Candy Crush Soda Saga one is my current favorite.
Candy Crush Soda Saga is pretty standard for a match-three game. The game is not too special. But for being a traditional match-three, it is done very well.
#8 Toy Blast
I wrote a Toy Blast review on AndroidGamingFox.
Toy Blast is one of my favorite match-three games. I love how fast-paced and fun this game is to play.
I don’t like the theme and music of the game as much as other games. But I enjoy playing the game enough that it is a top favorite of mine.
#7 Cookie Cats
I wrote a Cookie Cats review on AndroidGamingFox.
Cookie Cats reminds me of older computer games I used to play when I first got into gaming.
I love just about everything about this game. I love how fun the game is to play. I also love the music and the cute singing cats.
The line-matching mechanic is a bit different than your traditional match-three game. I like it enough.
#6 Toon Blast
I wrote a Toon Blast review on AndroidGamingFox.
Having already liked Toy Blast, of course I wanted to try Toon Blast.
I like Toon Blast for the same reasons I like Toy Blast. I like how fast-paced and fun the game is. The game is great for playing in short breaks.
I like Toon Blast slightly more. So it is lower on the list.
#5 Candy Crush Friends Saga
I wrote a Candy Crush Friends Saga review on AndroidGamingFox.
At first, I didn’t play Candy Crush Friends Saga much or think much about it.
But after giving the game a second try, I enjoyed playing it a lot. Enough for it to become my favorite Candy Crush game.
#4 Angry Birds Match
I wrote an Angry Birds Match review on AndroidGamingFox.
Angry Birds Match is my favorite traditional-like match-three game. I love every one of the mechanics.
I am not a fan of the Angry Birds games, and I played the original one years ago. I like the spin-off games way more than the standard games.
Out of all the Angry Birds games I have played Angry Birds Match is the one I have played the most.
#3 Best Fiends
I wrote a Best Fiends review on AndroidGamingFox.
Best Fiends is a really fun game. It has decent match-three game mechanics, and it has interesting role playing game (RPG) type mechanics.
I like that the game has a bit more weight to it than just matching the pieces.
It is not quite as complicated as my top two favorite games. But it is much more interesting than a traditional match-three game like Candy Crush.
Out of my current lineup of mobile games, Best Fiends is one I have played a lot, and I like it.
#2 Pokémon Shuffle
I don’t like Pokémon games that much. I have not played mainline Pokémon games past Pokémon Emerald.
But I love Pokémon Spin-off games a lot. I have found that for some game series, the non-standard games tend to be my favorites.
I started playing Pokémon Shuffle for the first time on a Nintendo 3DS. For the brief time that I owned one.
When I found out there was an Android version of the game, I downloaded it on my phone and kept playing it.
The game’s mechanics can get a bit complicated. But that is when I do some online research to figure things out when I need to. I love the Pokemon theme and artwork. I like the music as well.
This game is well made. I keep playing the game often.
#1 Puzzle and Dragons
Puzzle and Dragons is my favorite match-three game of all time.
There is just something magical about the way you can shuffle the orbs around to make matches. It never gets old, and no other match-three comes close to giving this much freedom in matching mechanics.
There are also other little things you can do while making matches to get extra damage as well.
You get extra attack and other benefits from doing things like matching rows, four orbs, columns, and squares of nine orbs. The game is more complex than just matching three orbs.
Despite having played the game for years, I am still getting better at making matches. At one point, I had an app I used to practice matches for this game. That is how much I like Puzzle and Dragons.
Puzzle and Dragons is quite a deep game, and there is a lot of things to learn and understand. There is so much information that the game can be a bit overwhelming for a video game sometimes.
My biggest complaint is the game is not that good at explaining some mechanics, and I needed to do enough research to write a paper to understand some of the things in this game.
But the game is better at this now than years ago. Having played this game for off and on for years I understand what I need to do most of the time.
You find and create teams of cards, and then you make matches to beat levels. Some levels or dungeons are much harder than others, and you need to keep creating better teams to progress in the game.
There are so many cards to collect. Puzzle and Dragons is a Gacha game.
But the game gives out things all of the time, and I don’t feel like I am at a huge disadvantage by never buying anything. If only all developers could give out so much stuff to their free players.
Over the years, the game added even more ways to get free things. Puzzle and Dragons is a very fair free-to-play game. This game has only gotten better as it ages.
If I only could play one match-three game, I would play Puzzle and Dragons.
Puzzle and Dragons might be tough to get started and learn some of the deeper mechanics. But I still would recommend Puzzle and Dragons to people who love match-three games.
