In short, you start with a screen filled with coloured balls that are scattered randomly through the playing area.
Your objective is to get the matching colours to be adjacent to each other. Sounds easy, right?
Jawbreaker Game ModesThere are different game modes available, but the most popular is the Megashift mode. I've posted my brief notes below on this Jawbreaker game style.
The standard mode is a bit tougher. After logging several hours of play, I thought it might be a good idea to post some tips on this site.
Basic Gameplay Guidelines

- Double-clicking with stylus to collect points - all adjacent matches will disappear from the board
