AZZL features innovative gameplay, unique puzzles, and even a few secrets hidden in the games nearly 100 stories. To solve each of the puzzles, users have to tap, move, swipe, and rotate animated pieces that include squares, zigzags, waves, hexagons, triangles, circles and more.
Now players across iOS, Android, Windows phones, and the Amazon Appstore can unleash powerful artillery upon enemy defenses and double up on their own base protection with an all-new heavy battle Droid™, Droideka Oppressor.

Victory Bonuses now apply during Conflicts so that players can climb the ranks to increase their Conflict Victory bonus rewards while they compete.

Pick a color and memorize every spot on the screen that it appears — and then everything switches to gray. If you can remember every shape you need to tap, and do it quickly enough, you can save some precious time and you’ll get a chance to continue your hot streak on a bigger board with more shapes.

Game Center should be a great feature, but it’s been riddled with bugs since launch showing how little Apple really focuses on the needs of gamers. This latest bug that keeps players from playing the games they love is a perfect example that.
I was doing a little research trying to figure out why I couldn’t get some games to launch. I initially didn’t worry about it too much as I figured it was just another bug and a reboot would fix it. When a reboot didn’t fix it, I discovered that there were dozens of games I couldn’t get into that I previously had no problems with.
The bug that I’m experiencing is something that lots of others are facing as well. It seems to be some sort of a bug when upgrading to iOS 9 that causes an issue with Game Center. The easiest way to illustrate the bug is that going into Game Center settings or the Game Center app causes a lock-up. Bad data seems to be created after the iOS 9 upgrade and when Game Center tries to initialize it just freezes. This locks up any game that relies on Game Center and keeps it from working, just stuck in a loop. Some games will work, but report Game Center is not signed in.
There’s an Apple Support Community forum post with lots of angry people that goes on for 14 pages. The really bad news is that there is no fix. So far the only remedy that seems to work is wiping the phone clean and starting over from scratch and not restoring from a backup at all. Seems a bit drastic, but at this point it’s the only choice.
