I have no problem admitting my BlackBerry PlayBook is used mostly for movies and games, especially since I found the game Azkend by 10tons Ltd. Azkend is the first release in the series (Azkend 2: The World Beneath is coming soon) and is sure to be a hit with a lot of you out there who enjoy puzzle games!

Unlike some of those other tile matching games out there, Azkend goes above and beyond just a basic tile game. Gameplay is actually quite easy so different age groups will enjoy it (my five year old plays it with very little help from me). All you do is drag your finger on the board to make matches and destroy the tiles.


  • Familiar match-3 gameplay with a classic Azkend twist
  • Captivating story
  • Powerful talismans
  • Beautiful hand drawn sceneries
  • Stunning visual effects

The backstory of the game is that you and your archaeological team found an ancient relic in Asia. As it turns out, the relic was more powerful than you thought and is protected with a curse. Now your mission is to reach the Temple of Time and return the relic to lift the curse. Earn all the powerful talismans and unleash their powers to aid you in your quest. With breathtaking sceneries along your journey, the rich and relaxing atmosphere will draw you in and immerse you in another world.

I seriously can't stop playing this game! Azkend is available on other platforms as well as for Macs and PCs (check out some of their other games here). You will be hooked the very first time you play it. Azkend is available for the BlackBerry PlayBook (running OS 2.0 or higher) in App World for $2.99. While some may think that's high (I was one of them till I played it), the graphics in this particular game make it an easier pillfor me to swallow.
