The match-3 style matching didn’t seem to work that well for Poker Match, so I wanted to change it to a drag-to-match style of games like Puzzle Craft.
One of the added benefits this provides is I don’t have to implement chained matches (matches that occur as a result of falling pieces). I can also implement additional match types that have not yet been implemented (since they were not really practical using the old system) such as full house and two pair.
