hello, worst programmer (not even one) here.
After 6 hours of 0% progress I can say that I am stuck at the following point: matching 3 blocks.
My situation: create a grid of 50*50 blocks. (I use 1 sprite, with every frame = another color)
Matching 2 blocks works, but I can't match 3 blocks.
I am looking for some general tips on different kind of match 3 techniques (on how to let the game know those 3 or more blocks are the same and can be cleared).
(for example, I am trying the technique to add invisble extra sprites that can touch other blocks and check if that block is the same or not - or at least I am trying to, but failing somewhere)
Thanks in advance.
