Innovative gameplay allows players to experience six unique game modes including action, puzzle, practice, theme playlist, split screen head-to-head and multiplayer tournaments.
"Poker Smash builds on well established match three puzzle mechanics, but adds the extra depth of using poker hands as the matching predicate," stated Drew Card, Creative Director and Co-founder of Void Star Creations.
