Odd Ones Puzzle

Click a symbol that does not have a neighbor (in one of the four main directions) of the same color or shape.
This eliminates all (up to eight) tokens close to the clicked token.
The tokens in any columns above fall into the newly created space.
You win if no tokens are left. If you cannot eliminate all tokens, try to eliminate as many as possible.
