Designed in MacPaint for the original 1984 Macintosh, this match 3 casual game merges old and new Apple technology to re-invent a popular game.

Specially designed in 8-bit low-fi black and white graphics the game uses a mix of vector graphics and 1980's MacPaint repeating patterns to create a completely new contemporary style, all for the love of Mac.

“All the computer games I grew up with had this stark black and white style. Minimal Match 3 Ultimate brings back fond memories of games built on limited systems, yet they blew my mind.” - The Appreciative Minimalist

Found a bug in the WebGL version: the game is only adding "///" pieces to the board, trapping me in an infinite loop [edit:]soft-lock with no way I can find to forfeit/skip to the map screen.  I let it climb to 20k before closing, but I've wanted to skip the level end bonus points for a while now.
