I know it's too late and I'm too tired to be making an informed decision on whether or not I would like this game when I read "Spellgarth Castle" in the game description as "Spaghetti Castle"!

Wow, if it WAS Spaghetti Castle it would be a definite buy for me!

Another dark, dreary game. This time in a Match 3 game. As if we didn't get enough of dark games. No buy for me. Even for $3.

Sorry, No Skip = No Purchase

It does have a skip. The original version didn't. Believe me, I used it. No matter how I put them together, those cogs wouldn't turn. Guess I'm being dumb, but this game just wasn't working on any level for me.

I’ve played about 25 minutes of the demo and plan to purchase as a DD. I didn’t find the subdued color palette “dark” or “dreary”, simply soothing to the eyes. The flashy M3 games are fine, but every once in a while, my eyes need a break! My observations are as follows:
• The load time for the M3 screens is a bit slow, but there is a loading bar that runs across the bottom of the screen that looks a bit like a sideways shooting star for the 3 seconds it takes the game to load the next screen. Times might be longer on slower computers.
• I haven’t gotten too far, but the 3 mini-games encountered were pleasant (I plan to skip the pipe puzzles should they appear as I detest those; fortunately, thanks to the responsiveness of the developer, the skip button is now included in the game), and I completed them with no trouble. Hints were even available for these puzzles.
• I particularly enjoy the fact that the items discovered upon completion of a board have been used in the mini-games, and the “use,” “look,” mode is indeed reminiscent of the style of my much-loved parser-based adventure games of the 90s. Some players, though, may hate that style.
• The M3 boards are small (so far) and easily cleared. While I am currently playing in untimed adventure mode, I’m tempted to start a timed game (smile).
• This game is a buy for me at $3.

Hi Lainie,

The 1980's text adventure games were my inspiration for doing it that way, long before the likes of Monkey Island and Beneath a Steel Sky changed everyone's way of thinking (for the better, I might add!).

Just to add - yes there *is* a skip button on the minigames now, due to popular demand. This update was released shortly after the original release due to an oversight (by me!) in the first place. I never really got why people would want to pay for a game then skip through half of it, but oh well!!

Anybody found the cheat yet?
