Didn't much care for this one. No story and the instruction are rather sketchy. Still don't know what the ladybug is for. Can't understand the words being said when a match is made. Don't believe I will be getting this one.

This is an average match 3 game. For me the game is much too easy and not really special. I would buy this game maybe as a Daily Deal, but not for the full price.

Not much to it, but I think if there were more, the unique gameplay and charm might have made this a buy.

I didn't care for this game. I didn't care too much for the game play. As another person said, maybe as a DD, but not full price.

I agree with everyone else - this is a no buy. The tutorial gave minimal direction and the game play was fair at best. Played in "survival mode" but never figured out what you had to do to survive. I don't think I'd even buy this as a Daily Deal

played the first level with no clue as to what the object of the game was then entered my name as requested which resulted in the game staying on the same page with no menu to escape , resorted to having to switch off my computer only to have the same page come up again and again and again . definate no buy for me not even as a DD .

I played for about 2 minutes and found the game totally pointless. There was no indication any goal was being achieved.

Its pretty, but you don't get enough information. What IS the ladybug for? I also got stuck on the high score page with no way out. Music is stultifying.

Fix it!! I think its so pretty.

With different (definitely different) music, more explanation or instruction about the game and "hey oh" without the little quirk of getting stuck on the high score page and having to a/c/d to get out of the game it MIGHT be more enjoyable. However the way it is now I couldn't wait to delete the game. Sorry Devs and it was a cute idea and could have been a fun M3. No buy here. Happy Gaming All

Hi BearKat, to get out of the high score page you have to press th "ENTER" key! I don't know what the lady bug is for either.

I agree that the game is pretty, but pointless.

There are a few match 3 games I enjoy, but this one totally eludes me. I have no idea what I am supposed to be clicking on. If I had 3 purple butterflies and a 4th one next to either end, I attempted to change the butterflies position like I would in any other match 3. In this game, when I would do that, the purple butterfly that I wanted to switch positions with, all that happened was the purple butterfly simply became another color.

I have no idea what I am supposed to be doing.

I agree with the other posts...what is the point of the game, the goal? Left me feeling "how to feel stupid in one easy lesson".

Hopefully someone else will be able to figure out the point of all of this.

Uninstalling after only a few minutes of play.

Gripping game play? I think not! Totally pointless and boring. Deleted after five minutes.

Not a game I would buy.. It's too boring.. some match 3 games have more levels than this one.

about as much fun as watching paint dry. Anything more complicated for the over 40 crowd? Ugh!!

It's a cute little game. I don't hate it but it probably would have been a lot more enjoyable without the little girl voices announcing every time you made a "multi match" or a "combo chain". Their constant narration got really annoying, really fast.

Agree! It's pretty, something to kill time with and enjoy the pretty graphics but otherwise completely pointless. Definitely a DD if at all.

What a waste of beautiful graphics. I stuck with it for all of 18 minutes. I went in and out over a period of 3 days thinking I had to be missing something. Nope...it's pure frosting and no cake.
Better luck next time dev.

For those who wonder how this is supposed to work: As the tutorial clearly shows, you place the butterfly you're handed on your pointer in order to make a match, rather than switching tokens between squares or tracing a path or clicking a group--the 3 standard means of "match 3" play.

It's unusual in that respect, but not a problem for me.

But what strikes me as strange and unpleasant is that when you match 3 or more in two directions at once, instead of the butterflies fluttering off, they clump and stay in place. I don't like that, and won't buy this one.
