Match 3 Game Mechanic


I've always wanted to make a match-3 type game and I was able to get this working on the train ride into work. Ultimately what you're seeing here is the "hardest" part of the match-3 mechanic, which is the game being able to find matches and mark them as such.

It was thanks to talking to my coworkers Keith and Peter a few weeks ago that got me inspired to tackle the challenge. I never had a good idea of how to do it, but their explanation really helped. I'm very excited.

What you're basically seeing is a generated board and my console log marking which ones need to be destroyed. It's working. IT'S WORKING!
