I'm a big sucker for these Fishdom games and I bought this one right away even though I already have all the seasons except Thanksgiving plus every other Fishdom offering that exists.

These Fishdom games are not the most challenging (or best) match 3 games that exist but, like SpinTop HOGs, you know what you're getting with this franchise.
They always deliver on your expectations in that you know you will enjoy the games.

As always:

Another sucker here: Fishdom is like comfort food.....they're comfort games for me.
Always pleasant and soothing.

The best part about this game (so far) is that they went back to the bigger boxes!!! I didn't really care for the previous "seasonal" Fishdom games because the M3 boxes were so small - not so tiny you couldn't see, but you did have to strain a bit to find the matches. These are nice and big, and based on the grid configurations in the early screens they will be very interesting to clear once I progress to the point that all the blocks are locked or blocked.

Great job! Now I have another interesting "fall back" game to play whenever the Arcade, Adventure, and Time Management fans get their fixes.

ps. Too bad they missed Easter as a holiday - I would have loved seeing the fish in bunny ears or delivering eggs!

I agree the bigger boxes are nice, and I like playing without the timer; however, I already have the Christmas area and the Halloween area from the games that were released last year. All that it is new is the Thanksgiving area. Sorry, but it's not a buy for me.

I also have the Christmas and Halloween versions, but there are new and different items to place in the tanks and the backdrop is slightly different, so they do look like new tanks. Give it a free trial - just the fact that the boxes are much bigger than the other seasonal ones made this a "buy" for me, but decide for yourself.

Thanks, Sinshack, I'll take your advice and give it a closer look tomorrow. I agree it might be worth it for the bigger boxes - I never play those other games because I get eye-strain after awhile.

I'm also a sucker for the fishdom series. I've been on hiatus from them as I was getting burnt out, but I have 2 free game codes burning in my email. I shall get this one with no hesitation!

I love Fishdom and yeah it's not the absolute best M3 play and the graphics aren't the usual fairy tale or creepy I go for but I love love love Fishdom! Looking forward to this one too

I bought it. I liked the fact of having all of the seasons together in one game.
The music is very relaxing with Fishdom Match 3 games. Also, I like to play timed and this game actually gives you 'the time' to finish. I love the beauty, comfort and fish decorations. They are so pretty.
I have gotten caught too many times with Match 3 games that I feel pressured. I don't have the reflexes that I did when I was younger. They are almost impossible to win.
So thank you to the dev. of Fishdom Match 3's. Very nice indeed.

Well put, I bought an untimed M3 once and never again, was the most stupefyingly boring game I've ever trudged through but by the same token it's nice to have the timer not be brutal. I like the super challenging ones too but with Fishdom you can chill and still have that edge of knowing you have to keep up.

As most everyone else has stated I'll buy this also. It's one of those go-to games when I want to kill time or just need to relax. I'm over 4oo levels into the original and still going. The holiday collection is a treat for me as I only have the original and Xmas/winter.
Good use for one of my credits....

Sinshack-
Bunny ears and delivering eggs...lol. I'd like to see that too.

Rebecca Lily-
Their screensavers are nice and soothing. And the best thing...changeable!

I have bought Fishdom 1 in 2008, but haven`t bought the other Fishdom games (but I would love to buy them as a Daily Deal someday ). I was happy to see this new Fishdom game released today and love that it combinate three seasons. Its a buy for me of course

I'm not a match-3 fan usually but I have never regretted buying the first one. There is something really relaxing about this. I love the graphics and the music. The levels get progressively harder and become quite challenging and yet it still just is quite soothing.The holiday themes just make it more of a treat.
Once you create your tank you can use it a s a screen saver. And with every play as you change it you can update your SS also.
I would recommend it. Demo it and see if you feel the same as I.
It must be the fish....I can relate to.

Wow! tough choice--ALL the fishdom games are fun! Why not do the demo of both and then decide?

I love the Fishdom games,especially because of the lovely fish,of the 'build an aquarium' element and the screensavers, and I never have had any techical problems with them, and there are hours and hours (days, weeks...) of gameplay, so guess what? I have to have this one as well
