That most beloved of all genres, the match-three puzzle game, will gain a new dimension of motion control when 4 Elements HD lines up with PlayStation Network in the coming months.
A new version of the PC original, the game will run in full 1080p with PlayStation Move support, letting you see every detail as you align three similarly-coloured items. Thankfully each coloured item is also a unique shape, letting colourblind players enjoy the game too.
The first HD screenshots are below, and there's no release date for 4 Elements HD just yet.
