Heebo is an adaptation of the classic Match-3 genre puzzle game for the Nokia N9, newer Nokia Symbian phones and Jolla phones. Align the quirky Heebos into lines of three or more to turn the background into golden tiles. When all the background tiles are changed you win the level! Simple but highly addictive!

Quick help

Swap the blocks by flicking over them. You can only swap blocks when either one of them will line up with three or more in a line.

TIP: If you explode more than three blocks in a line, a bonus background tile with a same colour block on it will be turned into gold. This is handy to get to those last hard-to-reach tiles!

Where can I get it?

Since the Nokia Ovi Store has been discontinued, you can get Heebo for Symbian phones in the Opera Mobile Store.

Who made it?

The game was programmed by me (Mats Sjöberg). It’s all in QML and JavaScript, with a bit of Qt C++ for those few parts which couldn’t be done in JavaScript. All the game and user interface graphics are by Niklas Gustafsson.
