Witty Ways is a rare gem in its category, a challenging Match-3 game. Here, rather than actively connecting matching cells, you have to delete cells from the board in a manner that the remaining ones slide into the required targets. From the second you open the game you will notice how sleek the design is. It takes five minutes to understand how to play this game, which is more than it takes for the average mobile game. However, the time spent figuring the game out is worth it, because the succeeding levels soon present trickier challenges to solve. If you still feel unsure of the mechanics after the tutorial, hang on for a bit and soon you will start to get it intuitively.
There is no time limit to each level as your mastery is measured by the number of moves you take to solve it. Your score is compared against the world average and that becomes an incentive to play each level as efficiently as possible. This mindset will be required because just as soon as you place one cell in the correct place, suddenly a move will shift all the other cells out of their designated spots and all will be chaos again. Or not, depending on your ability to think a few moves ahead. A move can also be undone by using a ‘Rewind’ but these have a cost in the in-game currency.
Ads plague this game like almost every other game in the play store. They stay mostly tame at the bottom of the screen in a non-intrusive banner but sometimes take up the entire page in the dreaded pop-up form. There are a bunch of levels with additional tweaks to increase the complexity like the Blockade packs or the Shadow packs. Removing the ads costs Rs. 120. In conclusion, Witty Ways does justice to its name.
