Matching With Friends looks like an interesting blend of match-three (i.e. Bejeweled Blitz) and the developer's very own Words With Friends. Players place colored blocks on a game board in the same fashion they would in a turn-based game of the super popular word game, only the goal in this case is to match three or more like-colored blocks rather than form words.
All the staples--like chat, Facebook Connect and more--are present in Matching With Friends, though players can earn and purchase bomb power-ups to clear small areas of the game board to make room for new matches. Upon a first, elitist glance, this is a distilled version of Words With Friends for people that don't like making words. But we'll have far more in-depth,and hopefully nicer, impressions of Matching With Friends in due time.
