Sadly, I've been playing this game all afternoon. That's how starved for a new M3 game I've been
It's like a cross between Wild West Story The Beginning and Vesuvius!!
Even the explosions sound the same.

It's a real shame. The graphics and music and everything else could be the best and it wouldn't matter. I'm too nauseous for it to matter. Excuse me, I have to go find a barf bag.


Excellent review, slimjims. IMHO, moving the board around is an incredibly lazy way to make a game more challenging.

Graphics is ok, especially with the HOGs puzzle secne, I hate it when the screen kept rollng by itself forward and backward. Even when I had the key I had to "force" match my wy to the key hole in order to use it. Sometimes differentiation in color is hard to detect

Verdict: 2.5/5

(nice powerups, but dull game)

Hi fishies

I must admit I totally disagree with most of the reviews on here. I am loving it .

I love the scrolling screen (so sorry for those that cannot cope with it) makes you have to think about where to go next, especially when you get morphed somewhere else that you do not really want to go to lol.

I am on level 65 and to be honest it just gets better, lots to do and it is a long game, lost count of how many hours I have been on.

Ty developer and for a great game.

Deb

Like ecblisa and debzzzzy, I also enjoyed this game.

The moving screen did not bother me (though I can understand how it could bother others). It reminded me of other match-3s that have a game area that is larger than your screen - you have the fun of exploring to see if you can get to all the different parts of it.

Some of the matches were very hard to make, but there were four power-ups (to clear one square, several squares, all of whatever game piece you clicked, and shuffle). Also, if you run out of matches completely, it shuffles itself.

There were things you had to get to be able to access parts of a level - a machete to get through jungle, a canoe to get through water, and a hammer to get through walls.

There was also a teleport here and there which takes you away from an area usually before you finish it, but it is easy enough to get back (just make matches in the direction you want to go until you get there).

I bought it, and finally reached the end of it today. There were 100 levels in total, plus minigames after every few levels (jigsaws, and spot the picture parts in a large picture - in later levels the picture parts you have to find are rotated, so harder to find - but I found them all, so it is possible).

All in all, a great game, it worked perfectly the whole way, and it was worth every penny - kudos to the devs, and I hope they make a sequel!!

I'm enjoying the game so far but the skipping around is rather disconcerting. The
early levels are kind of boring but it does get more challenging the further you go.
