In our constant quest for freshness and originality we are often quick to dismiss games that simply toe the line. But sometimes games that don’t innovate or otherwise alter a proven formula can prove enormously entertaining. Such is the case with Fishdom 2, Playrix’s sequel to its popular aquatic-themed match-three game Fishdom.

Both games were well-received by players, but match-3 fans will be happy to know that Fishdom: Spooky Splash has gone back to its match-3 roots. Like the first Fishdom, Spooky Splash has you swapping tiles and earning cash to decorate Halloween-themed fish tanks.
