Animatch is a tile matching game based on Zoo keeper for the DS (Zooo on GBA). The aim of the game is to create a row of 3 or more animals either horizontally or vertically by swapping tiles. Tiles can only be swapped if it results in a row of three or more of the same animal otherwise the tiles will swap back again. When a row of animals is made they dissapear from the board and the tiles above fall into their place.

If you enjoy the game and would like to donate some money to either ruckage or Pat you can do so at their websites. Any ammount is greatly appreciated and will help with future projects.
