Flip or Flop Home Edition Reviewed
8:47 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Macworld's Game Room has reviewed Toybox Games' Flip or Flop Home Edition, a matching game with a real estate theme. Players must match objects like sinks, windows, and wallpaper to collect money and advance to new screens. The Game Room gave Flip or Flop Home Edition four out of five mice.

From the review:

There’s a bit of strategy in Flip or Flop Home Edition, too. Different houses—even different houses in the same neighborhood—require different types of renovation. Some might only require some paint, wallpaper, and floors to turn a profit, while others might need more extensive work. You’ll have your choice of which properties to fix up in each given neighborhood, limited only by your budget. As you amass more cash and complete more renovations (changing the houses from drab, sometimes filthy and boarded-up pits to respectable looking homes), you’ll unlock the new neighborhoods that will let you work toward your dreams.

The puzzle part of the game takes place on a square blueprint that’s pegged to large pegboard. Clicking on arrows at the edge of each row or column of the blueprint causes icons representing each renovation to move over one space—match three and they’ll vanish from the puzzle in a flurry of paper, leaving you with some more cash and getting you closer to your goal, replaced with new icons that descend from the top. It’s a fun and interesting variation on the popular “match three” genre.
