Jelly Blocks - Squishy Match-3 Game

Jelly blocks is a squishy match-3 game you create matches by bouncing and smooshing blocks together. The bouncy soft pieces pile up, creating a unique play field that you stack your pieces on.  Think of it as squishy Tetris.

Most of the core game systems are in place. Future updates will include a tutorial mode, refined UI and extra game play modes.
