Free
Available from the App Store.

The Bejeweled app (from the developers of Plants vs Zombies and Peggle) is one that's had us addicted for ages. With lots of different modes to play and achievements to be won, you'll soon find that your daily commute flies by.

Our favourite mode is Diamond Mine, in which you'll need to race against the clock to find buried treasure.

 

The Treasures of Montezuma 3

Free trial with £1.99 full game unlock in-app purchase
Available from the App Store.

Another match-three game to try is The Treasures of Montezuma, which currently has three instalments. The latest tests your speed – try to score as many points as possible within one minute.

There are hundreds of levels to pay through, and you can download a free version of the app first to try before you buy.

 

Jewel Mania

Free
Available from the App Store.

Made by the developers behind Bubble Mania, the Jewel Mania game has more than 600 puzzles, in which players need to match three or more jewels to create combos and win levels.

 

Two Dots

Free
Available from the App Store.

Two Dots is a beautifully designed app that uses simple, colourful dots and subtle animations. Connect as many dots of the same colour as you can in one minute or a set number of moves to move on to the next level.

There are power-ups available, too, as well as special dots and themes that make this game a joy to play.

 

Hexbee

Free
Available from the App Store.

You'll need to match five in Hexbee, a line puzzle game with a flowers and honeycomb theme. This one's addictive, though not level-based. Simply beat your high score and make your way to the top of the leader boards.

There are three difficulties to choose from, so it'll always be a challenge.

 

10000000

£2.99
Available from the App Store.

By God, 10000000 is addictive. It's a blend of match-three games and dungeon-running roleplaying games like Diablo or ORC: Vengeance.

As your little pixel dude automatically wanders through a retro dungeon, he'll encounter assorted obstacles, and have to arrange trios of matching blocks in the bottom half of the screen to defeat them.

We also love the sequel, You Must Build A Boat, which is in our top ten favourite iPhone games of all time.

Catch animals by matching three of the same species to build up your zoo and battle against other zookeepers in this Zookeeper Battle game.

Jelly Splash is super cute. Connect lines of Jelly characters in this game that spans hundreds of levels. Aim for three stars in each level and find out how well your friends are doing.

Full of adorable characters, Disco Bees is a matching puzzle game. With ninjas, hippies and even zombees, Disco Bees is great fun.
