So, I've been playing 10000000 way more than I expected lately. It recently came out on steam and has been available on iOs for a while.

It's very compelling match-3 gameplay tied to a forever-run mechanic with rpg elements (upgrades, items) with old-sk00l graphics. I highly recommend you give it a try. You'll find yourself playing longer than expected mumbling "just one more run... just one more run..."

It did look good and I almost picked it up when it was on sale on steam. But I had picked up too many recently and had to pass this one over. I'll probably eventually come back to it, but good to know it is as fun as it appears.

Hmmm, should I get this on my phone or Steam?

I spent plenty of time playing PuzzleQuest on my iPod touch. Is it similar to that?

Not really like PuzzleQuest (which I *loved*). PQ had a story that was funny and was a more traditional match-3. 10M is VERY fast paced and you can drag as far as you want left/right or up/down to make matches, so it feels quite different from a traditional match 3 (where you only swap adjacent tiles to match). 10M's rpg elements consist of "Quests" to eventually level up, 3 of which are open at any one time (and are replaced on the next run when you complete them). They are quite straightforward though, e.g. get X points in a run, collect X wood in a run, make X match-5's in a run, make X triple matches in a run, etc. The other rpg elements are upgrading, you open and upgrade several rooms to improve your character/equipment i.e. upgrade magic, sword, etc (I'd list the rest but it's slightly spoilerish).

So you complete quests to level up, get resources to improve your character, and just get better at playing to get better scores for each run.

Oh, and by run, I'm being literal -- your character runs across the top of the screen and encounters random things you have to kill/unlock by doing matches.

The goal is to hit 10 million points in a single run. I'm now up to where I've hit 4.5 million in one run (and have maxed most of the stuff possible, and I think I have just one more level to go)

Not sure what happens then (i.e. if you get to continue or what) there are several steam achievements that would suggest you get to...

Seems awesome.
