Those looking at Poker Smash on the XLBA, scratching their heads wondering, "Why do I need another Arcade Poker game?", might want to take a closer look. Yes, there are cards here, but it is certainly not a game of actual poker, although a good working knowledge of poker hands will serve you well.
It is your basic match-three puzzle game with a twist. Not nearly the genre expanding twist of Puzzle Quest's RPG elements, but it does more than Bejeweled or the other typical gem-matching puzzlers.
