_Muertitos_ is a match-three puzzle game with art inspired by Mexican
culture. The game is played on a 4×4 board and the goal is to create as many
matches as possible and have a high score until the board is full with no more
moves possible. At the start of the game the board is empty and there are
sixteen pieces surrounding the board. By tapping a piece it is pushed onto the
board and a new one appears at the empty space. A match is created by lining
up three identical pieces horizontally or vertically, removing them. Larger
matches are also possible, through longer lines or with different shapes.
Pieces that are pushed onto the board also push other pieces if there is room.
Each game starts with a small number of different pieces and then the amount
of variations gradually increases with each level cleared. Other game elements
are pots that are broken when tapped, clayfaces that transform into a random
piece and wildcards that match with any piece. Every now and then three
bonuses can be picked from a hidden selection, adding them to the four corners
of the board. This introduces for instance new pieces that can be dragged onto
the board to remove one.
Next to the Mexican _Muertitos_ skin, the game can also be played with the
_Halloweenies_ (Halloween) and _Creepsmas_ (Christmas) skins.
