Renatus Media has announced the launch of its newest Facebook puzzle game, Sweet Smash Story. Inspired by a real-life relationship between a little boy and his dog named Toy, the game is the fulfillment of a son’s wish to play a game that contained his dog, allowing him to play with Toy even when the real pet wasn’t around. In each level of Sweet Smash Story, which was developed by Playcream, players click on groups of two or more touching, matching squares on the board to clear them in order to meet level-specific objectives.
Since there’s always room for one more match-three game in one’s life, PlayQ Inc has launched Charm King on Facebook.

Each level of Charm King has a different board layout and overall requirement for completion, with many of the genre’s expected features, like stars and move limits, being present throughout.
