4 Best Places to Play 'Same Game' for Free

Where to play Same Game tile removal puzzles

Same Game is a fast-paced puzzle game where the goal is to remove all the tiles from the screen with the fewest clicks possible and in the fastest time. Every Same Game is a little different and some have different twists such as bombs and row/column destroyers that will quickly get rid of tiles.

The original game was released in 1985 by Kuniaki Moribe under the name Chain Shot!. It was then only available for Fujitsu computers before being ported to Unix operating systems in 1992 and Windows in 1993, at which point it was translated to English.

How to Play Same Game

You start playing Same Game by finding a group of two or more tiles that go together and click or double-click on them. They'll be removed from the game screen and the tiles above will fall into place. Keep clicking on groups of tiles until you've cleared the Same Game screen.

Same Game Charged is a traditional Same Game in the sense that you remove groups of tiles, or in this case, balls.

Same Game Charged is different from the other run-of-the-mill Same Games because balls are continuously dropped down so it's not possible to clear the screen. The goal with Same Game Charged is to clear as many balls as you can to get the high score.
