Chris Savory, who developed Swap Heroes [$0.99] and several other titles, has teamed up with the Wedding Escape [Free] developer Rafael Lima, to form Race Cat Games.

I've gotten top lay the game, and the matching action is interesting, because there's the planning phase where you figure out which matches you make, and then you have to make them on the board before time runs out. A match once made forms a wall that can't be moved, so you have to be very careful about which moves you make and when. Then you have the entire meta-game, where you open up shops, collect new heroes, and upgrade everything. It shows some promise as a fun experience, and you can check it out on April 27th.
