This is comment not a review.

Thanks so very much to Big Fish and the ever so talented developers for this beautiful and varied game.

We desperately needed a good Match 3 game to come along. It is absolutely beautiful and fun and I am just loving it. Well back to the game !!!

It's good it's nice it's well done and on and on but why are match games so small? There's so much screen space and yet the actually area with the game play is average. One day they might just make a match 3 game which is FULL SCREEN. Now that will be worth paying for.

There are lots of them. Try Treasures of Montezuma I, II, III. Too fast?

Try Pantheon.

Have you tried Paradise Quest or the follow up Vesuvia? The M3 puzzles may not cover the wholscreen at first, but as you progress they become bigger and I mean during play, whole new portions of the island grow like apendages to explore. It is a moving screen but only when you move it by making matches in that direction.

Ii bought this 7 Wonders because it does fill my 17" wide laptop for a change. Yes the puzzle grids are on the small or normal size but the backgrounds and between levels building with the block you got are quite beautifully wide.

For me, it takes long enough to reach the point you get the keystone to appear so I don't think I'd want the puzzles to be any bigger. You do get a variety of shapes.

And does anybody know what do they mean with "city of caesars"? It should be in Rome and not in Southamerica!

Hahaha, Cristina... It certainly is a mistake of the developers. City of Caesars, indeed...

I liked this game but I finished it in an evening. I think it is too short!

Well, being the curious sort and noting in the synopsis of the game the name El Dorado, I looked it up. City of Caesars tranlated is "Cuidad de Los Ceasares" and is also known as City of Patagonia, Wandering City, Trapalanda (or Trapanada), Lin Lin and Elelin. It is a mythical city of South America supposedly located somewhere in Patagonia, in some valley of the Andes between Chile and Argentina. According to what I read despite being searched for during the colonization of South America no evidence proves it ever existed. There is a lot more and links to other names connected with it if you "search" City of Caesars/South America including the also mythical city of El Dorado. Well, now to get back to this great game which I am thoroughly enjoying!!

I actually completed the whole game in TIMED mode; for me, that's a miracle

There was 1 level where I ALMOST timed out but my power-up filled up and I grabbed it and got the stone out off the board just in the nick of time.

I have to say that this game was VERY enjoyable but I am disappointed that I was not able to figure out the City of Caesars mine with the 3 orange tiles and ended up having to skip it but other than that, wowee -- I FINISHED THE GAME IN TIME MODE!!!!

How very interesting; I've heard of Patagonia but I've never heard it referenced before as being the City of Caesars. Thanks for the education; it's always nice to learn something new

Very cute and cheerful game, I hadn't play this type of games in a while, I am usually on Hid Obj and strategy games, but I am really enjoying it, I chose the normal options, so it's timed, and so far I have reached already a few achviements, really rewarding, and i love to built the sites as the game goes on, good job Mumbo Jumbo!! Holydays greetings!

I have played this game a number of times, all but the first time in timed mode (1st time in Zen mode). This time I watched as the finished location added its gold, and I realized with each one that the gold looks tacky. It doesn't look like it's actually there and it looks like an afterthought, and it isn't even in places where you would think they would put gold on the buildings. It doesn't add a thing to the look of the location itself. I like the fact that you can look at your finished location as long as you like (compared to 7 Wonders 2 where they gave you only a few seconds), but the gold I can do wtihout. And although the statues are nice looking, I noticed in Shangrila that they didn't look like they were actually there either.

Think I'll either keep playing in Zen mode or just not get all the keys. Maybe you can just not put the gold and statues down; I'll try that too.

Otherwise I love the game. I didn't even realize there was a gold/statue option when I first played in Zen mode. Then I read the reviews and so played in timed mode to see what I was missing. I don't think I was missing much.

Maybe if there is a future game they will improve the gold. Or leave off the gold and put some people walking around. I think that would have been better.
