I have been looking for a new match 3 game, but this one turned me off after 2 minutes.

The music is annoying, and the puzzles are "set pieces", You need to clear the board in a set number of moves. The first ones are trivial and I presume they get more involved as you play on.

A personal record: deleted after two minutes. I'm a sucker for a good M3,
but didn't like the game play on this one. Also, it had a timer.

Agree with all fishies reviews.
I thought this game looked different and interesting, and M3 one of my fave genres.
Couldn't take more than 2 minutes of it!
Still, can't complain after the fab recent iHOGs :-)

Agree with all of the above - although I lasted 15min.

Made it through about 10 levels in that time. Only 1 level that I struggled to get & had to use a hint.

Can't comment on music as I always turn the music down / off with any game I play. Graphics were good but game play was so repititive that, overall, the game did nothing for me.

Deleted the game after playing for 15min.

I lasted 30 minutes, 20 of which I played in Marathon mode (unlimited time) -- which I recommend for the trial to everyone who is into Puzzle / strategy or the like. The game's main category is Brain Teaser, and IMO the Match 3 sentence is very misleading, although I admit it's the same way of playing, somehow.

Marathon mode gave me time to learn its difference: moving left and right only. Was sort of hypnotizing after a while. One mode for some relaxing game play once in a while is not enough to make me buy it, though.

Didn't see much difference between the other 3 modes - limited moves and/or timer (30 seconds on easy already?!), as said above - but didn't look very long there either.

Wow.

Normally, I rate a game out of 20 points.

This one is not even worth the time to review it.

That is REALLY bad.

One word: Avoid.

talisman out.

It seems that I feel the same as everyone else. I only lasted 4 min. I like match3's but not done this way.

I've been playing match 3 forever, but like most reviewers here this game is bad!
I got stuck at the 2nd puzzle and gave it up after about 2 minutes.

I lasted 8 minutes - I loveeeeee M3 games, but this one if as ridiculous as they get!

The puzzle is to figure out what in tarnation they want you to do.

See you around the pond...minus this game...deleted in a heartbeat...not even $2.99 would tempt me - let alone pay full price.
