Planet Buster features 48 puzzle stages, 18 carefully designed "challenge levels", an interactive map of the game's universe including previously unreleased concept art and an inventory of 6 different special items. Furthermore the game does not restrict players to swap only adjacent tiles, which allows you to strategically arrange long chains of planets. However each move comes at a price: one coin. Coins can be recollected on the playing field, but consider that the bigger the chain-reactions are that players trigger the more coins will appear on the field. This mechanic calls for deeper strategic thinking and is one of the central features that sets the game apart from other match-3 puzzle games.
