reMovem is a very simple game for the iPhone and iPod Touch that may keep some of you entertained for a few minutes, tops. This version of the game, just like every other rendition of it, doesn't add anything new. The game starts out with a screen full of different color ?jawbreakers?. Your goal is to clear the screen completely by tapping on jawbreakers that are in groups of 2 or more.

That's about the entirety of the game right there. The only complications that you need to worry about are whether you'll actually be able to clear all the jawbreakers through proper movement; or if you'll be able to beat your last high score through removing more jawbreakers at a time.

Unfortunately, even though this is a free game, it's hard to get excited about it. Besides using the touch aspect of the iPhone and iPod Touch, you're not taking advantage of any other features. The graphics aren't that great looking either as you're just presented with a few colored jawbreakers on a plain background.

With so many new and more interesting free games available for the iPhone and iPod Touch, it's hard to justify spending time playing reMovem let alone keeping it on your device. While this might have been fun on your first touch screen phone, there are plenty of other puzzle games available at no cost on the app store that are much more deserving of your time.
