EverMerge (2020): Merge & Match (EverMerge: Merge 3 Puzzle on Android) is a puzzle game where you match and combine groups of objects to make new items and unlock new lands. It takes the familiar puzzle setup in an ever-expanding direction with a modern fantasy narrative and endless in-depth crafting, collecting, and mission systems. There's some really well-designed complexity here for those who can resist the drive to the optional purchases.

When sleeping beauty awakes to find the land under a strange curse and shrouded in fog, it's up to you to help restore the land to its former glory by rebuilding, clearing the mist, and welcoming all the magical creatures and characters back.

You move the objects on the screen around with your finger, combining groups of three to create a single larger version (three shrubs to a tree, three lumps of gold to a coin, and so on), to make specific items and complete quests. Soon, you unlock larger buildings which you use to cook food, expand your land, and continue developing more quickly. As you get even further, you unlock new characters to perform tasks and actions and new areas in which to build.

It's this combination of a strategic puzzle game, city builder, and fantasy adventure that sets it apart, offering a unique mix of simple, short missions and actions with the grand scale of building your own world. Provided you resist the drive towards in-game purchases there's plenty of value here.
