Hard to know from just the hour demo how the game unfolds - if it gets more interesting or not as you play it. If you've played past the demo hour, please share your thoughts...

I love this game. At first I thought it was going to be boring but I kept playing and liked it more as I went along. I played up to level 17 in the 1 hour demo then I bought it. What got me hooked were the puzzle levels. I love the puzzle levels. I have not been able to stop playing. I am on level 57 now and my stomach started growling and I looked at the clock to see it is 9:30 at night and I haven’t eaten my dinner yet. I am going to grab a bite and keep playing.
Love it!

I have completed the game twice and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It started out slow and I thought it might be boring but as soon as I saw the puzzles I was hooked. The scenes are beautiful and the music ethereal and relaxing. The story is mystical and has a twist at the end if you finish the expert modes.

There are 72 levels in the story mode and about one third of them are the puzzle type games. The puzzles are the reason I bought the game so I’m glad there were that many. The Expert Modes are not unlocked until you complete the Story Mode. The Expert Levels and the Expert Puzzles are only five screens each for a total of 10 extra levels. They are a part of the Story Mode. You can continue to play in the Endless and Survival Modes or you can start a new profile and begin the story mode again.

The Endless Mode is unlocked after you complete the first 8 levels. It is a variety of the regular match-3 screens but without the Dark Symbols and Black Holes that drain your points.

The Survival Mode is unlocked after you complete the first 30 levels. It is the regular match-3 with the added challenge of the Dark Symbols and Black Holes swirling around.

The Story Mode levels get increasingly difficult. When you get up into the levels beginning with about 60 they get a little hectic but they are not too hard to master with perhaps a few tries. You are given quite a few Power Ups along the way that help you out and are fun to use. I would like to have seen better explanations of the Power Ups in the How to Play section of the game.

I also would like for there to have been more of the puzzle mode type screens but at my age in a couple of weeks I can play them again and I won’t remember any of the solutions, but I can always look at my videos (which are on youtube).
