The developer ofLINE recently announced that the app evolved from just a communication tool to a platform.
LINE Birzzle is the first app for the new LINE.
Birzzle is a tile-matching puzzle game, in which you try to line up three or more of the same color of birds. As features of typical puzzle games like rensa (chain) are included, puzzle game fans will find the challenges they want.
It takes about 3 minutes to beat a stage, which is a good time length for a smartphone game.
Even in moments when usual puzzle games do not allow you to control gameplay, for instance, when the birds are falling from the above or appearing from the bottom, you can keep playing without interruption. This would be why it is officially called as an "action puzzle" game.
It has an in-game currency system. You can buy items with "coins", which you can earn while playing, or can purchase with real money.
After downloading the app, please check LINE's Sticker Shop. You can get LINE Birzzle's Sticker set for free. Enjoy using the Stickers of cute and funny birds for communication with your friends.
With a lot of animations, beautiful music and attractive characters, LINE Birzzle is already a high quality puzzle game by itself, but used with LINE, it becomes more interesting.
There is also a paid version of the app, which features initial 5000 coins bonus (worth 170 yen), unlimited Feather System (in which you can play Endless mode with no limits) and Ghost Mode. If you like the free version, it will be worth buying.
Let's look forward to the next LINE's app (and Stickers).
