This is the cutest M3 game ever.
You can play relaxed or times mode. But can´t change the custom cursor.

Each time you are finished with a level, you can choose to use the background image as your wallpaper - neat.

I played for about 15 minutes and then stopped. This is a really lovely and very relaxing game, but not for me. I didn´t like the "nearly done" message that came up each time I only had 3 more eggs, etc to find. This game is guiding me a little too much, and I would say this definitely a game for little kids as well.

If you like cute, relaxed play, and lots of guidance, then you can´t go wrong with this one.

This is so cute. I know for some this will be too childish but I can't help it. I know that the more I play the harder it will get and you get to look at cute bunnies. This gets me into the easter spirit and filling a rainbow to make the power-ups larger is a great way to incorporate all things spring. With the spring sale this is worth the little bit of money to relax and enjoy the game.

I love this game because it is very relaxing. I wonder if the levels get harder the further along in the game?

I like this game very much. It has that something magic hard to define. The art is very nice and I like those big chips. They are sooo cute. There are many power ups too.

If you played Unwell Mell, or Wizard of Oz, then you'll be happy to hear that Spring Bonus was made by the same person as those 2.

Very cute. This game is a delight to play, it's got the feel good factor.
The levels get harder as you go along. Think I might buy this.

I just LOVE this game! It's so cute!!! I've been working my way through Vesuvia but it's seeming a lot more like work than like play!

I love the cute animals, I love the graphics...I even love the music...and that's usually the FIRST thing I do when I go into a game...turn off the music! The power ups are fun and making them bigger is fun...and the wall papers are just the right size to make fantastic puzzles out of when I finish this game!

SOOOO glad that there's a sale this weekend! I'm pretty sure I would have used a credit for it though!

Valdy, if you go to the options menu and uncheck "show tips", then you don't get all of the "handholding" and the "nearly done" message doesn't show up either!

Thank you so much for the info, Ajuma. I didn´t realise that the "nearly done" message was part of the "show tips".

*runs back to where the game is being offered to redownload it*

Light fare - a pleasant cheerful game. Good gameplay features. My favorite thing is different goals each round. And different game pieces each round too. No story, but looks like more than 100 levels. Spring and secular Easter theme. Makes breaking ice and snow blocks seem relevant lol. I'm up to level 20 so far with 15 minutes of the demo left.

After putting in 70 hours this week (one person called in sick and another just quit) at work I really needed a game like this! And with the sale price - this was a definite "no brainer" !! I love hidden object games and have brought most of the Collector's Editions but needed something to relax and this fit the bill.

I think I'm on Level 28 and it does get a little more complicated but I love hitting the power ups and now there is something called the "Mystery Box" that is a blast of fun!

A special thank you to the developers for adding the "Relaxed" mode! Good thing you did cuz I would have run out of time on the last level I just played, LOL.

I know this game isn't for a lot of fishies out there but I really like it and thought I'd take the time to share my thoughts.

Happy gaming everyone and have a marvelous weekend --
Cher

So glad you all like the game! Thanks so much for your positive comments. I love the Spring and wanted to make a happy fun game about it.

The game does get harder the more you play and should be quite challenging towards the end - it's definitely not just a kids game. Of course you can toggle timed mode on/off whenever you want on the map screen. Also the tips like "nearly done" go away after level 10, they are just there to help newcomers learn the game.

Enjoy, and Happy Easter! (for those of you that celebrate it, and if you don't then I hope you have a lovely Spring!)

I demoed this just because it's put out by Grey Alien Games--the same folks who brought you Fairway Solitaire and I loves me some Fairway Solitaire (*#$& gopher and all).

A little too cute for me, but the hour I played was fun. Excellent gameplay, good music, and would be a wonderful way to entertain very young houseguests over the Easter weekend! I give it even if it's not my taste.

Yep, I saw GreyAlienGames as the last poster and had to come look at this. Downloaded and tried a few levels. Will be getting this before the weekend is over. I don't buy alot of M3 games, but this one is cute and I like the option of some cute wallpapers....don't usually use those, but checking yes didn't interfere with game play or anything else on the desktop.

Now, if we could just get another dynamite Fairway Solitaire. Love that game!

I was also encouraged by seeing this was made by GreyAlienGames, because they don't seem to make half-baked games. I've played for some time now (2-3 hours) and still love it. Actually, I love it more. It gets harder, and the bonuses keep changing, which is lots of fun. Definitely not a "too easy" game, because those nasty ice blocks keep tokens from dropping. Also, if you run out of moves, you have to start the level over -- no free shuffle. If you hate "cute," you won't like the art, but hey, it's the Easter Bunny, what would you expect. I love the many animals. And just to thank GreyAlienGames for showing up here and letting us know they care what we say, I'm going to give it is a gift also.

Hi fishies,
I don't usually post but do read the forums daily and find the reviews very helpful. Spring Bonus is a game I would have just skipped over and not even demoed because it looks like a kid's game and too simplistic but your positive comments encouraged me to try it and I'm so glad I did. I do love a good M3 game and this one fills the bill. It's bright, cheerful, responsive and FAST! I did turn the music off after a while because it got to be too much but all in all, this is a fun, uplifting game and a great way to welcome Spring and all it's beauty. Thanks developers!

Definately the cutest game I've come across in a while! There are a ton of bonuses and even the "blocks" like ice and snow are all themed to spring and can be melted by the sun! And the birds and clovers and thunderstorms... all the bonuses are just so ... fitting! I also really appreciate that if you don't use the "rainbow charge" to make your bonuses more powerful it carries over to the next level. There really is no reason to "save it up" just use it for triple bonus effectiveness (approximately).

My only complaint is, as another fishie noticed, that you can't choose which wallpaper to use. It looks like you can only choose the level you are on... I'd like to see a selection (maybe from the main menu) to cycle through and choose one from the locations you've unlocked. Granted, the wallpapers do look VERY much like the locations on the map (i.e. if you see a barn on the map, that is probably where the barn wallpaper is!)...I haven't tried to go back and replay any level yet so maybe it isn't too much of a problem.

Oh and I LOVE that you can turn off the timer without having to start over. I always play timed but there has been occasion where, after the 10th time you fail a level where the timer just gets annoying! (not that that has ever happened to me! lol).
