Match 3 type of mobile games don't require you to think mostly, but are fun and can be great time passers (and wasters). LINE, which is mostly known for its free messaging service, has been releasing simple and fun games lately, to increase their user base and entertain the current one as well. Their newest game is called LINE Trio and it may not be something radically new, but if you're looking for the fun and the familiar, then this is a good game as any.
Detective Brown and his assistant Romeo are on a mission to recover stolen masterpieces from Phantom Thief X and you can help them by solving puzzles along the way. You follow the usual rules of match 3 games, matching 3 blocks of the same color by moving the blocks up, down, left or right. To make it a little more difficult, each stage has a specific mission you have to fulfill, like having a limited amount of moves to be able to clear that stage. And as you complete a stage, you'll receive 1 fragment of a stolen masterpiece. You need to collect all 20 fragments per area to complete the painting and then restore it to its rightful LINE gallery.
There are several special powers you can get throughout the game to make your progress faster. There are special blocks you can use when you pair 4 or more of the blocks, like Line Block, Hyper Block and Random Block. There are also items available, like +3 Moves, Super Plus, Star Shot, etc, all to help you match more blocks and get more fragments of the masterpieces.
You can also receive gifts when you invite your existing LINE friends to download and play the game, so the more, the merrier. LINE Trio is available for free download from the Google Play Store. Of course you need to have a LINE free messaging account to be able to do so.
