Match Mart is a match-3 game that features convenience store products in virtual retail spaces instead of balls, bubbles, marbles, tiles or other common match items on a traditional board, grid or playfield. The player moves items between shelves to create matches of three identical products. When they perform this task successfully, the game moves any items from the back of the shelves forward.
The player selects and drags the products to different shelves. These items include bags of chips; bone-in ham hocks; bottles of liquid laundry detergent, soda and water; boxes of cereal and ice cream bars; cans of energy drinks, pineapple and tuna; cartons of milk; and whole fruits. They can move a product to an empty space or an area in front of an item hidden by a shadow.
When the player matches items quickly, they receive combo points and clear red checkmarks on the progress bar at the top center of the screen faster. When they finish a level, known as a stage, they receive coins. They can multiply their winnings by watching an advertisement.
Match Mart also offers the player helpful tools like a magnetic eraser that automatically removes one set of three products if the player watches an ad. It also features a loyalty-style red stamp card. When the player collects 10 products, they receive access to new ones.
