This game started out interesting, but got boring very quickly.

There is no widescreen, and you only have the custom cursor.

I like that you can buy power-ups with the gems you earn, but gameplay itself just didn't hold my interest enough.

For those who do enjoy this game: happy gaming.

Hi valdy,
I was looking forward to trying this one, but alas my I pad has said NO!
Hopefully the support team will be able to tell me what to do and I can give it a try

Hi flowerchild44,
Even though the Mac version of this game has been released today, I don't believe it has been formatted for the iPad yet.
I did not see it listed under the iPad/iPhone games tab, though I could have overlooked it!

IT'S EXCITING, BFG, NOT EXITING.

Hire a proof-reader, what?

'Tis funny, though.


OOPS! You could PM a mod or contact CS. I'm sure that they would appreciate knowing about it and they can pass the word to the website folks in Seattle on Monday.

Thanks for the head's up, darkdisciple1313. I've made the changes in the post here (and cleaned up the other weird symbols that appeared ) and I'll let the team that handles the text on the game pages know as well.

Hope you're enjoying your Sunday!

Easter Eggs!

[Post New]by Serf2CavSpaniel on Jul 15, 12 9:01 PM
I'm assuming this is the "Comments" section for this game, and this is the appropriate thread to mention this.

Now, to those fellow Fishies who have DL'd or purchased this game, try clicking around on various things on the 'Title Page' of this game. You probably already noticed that the rather villainous looking character's (reminds me of Snidley Whiplash) eyes follow your cursor around the screen. But wait... there's more...!!!
There are a few extra audio Easter Eggs buried there but I won't give them away and spoil your fun. Happy hunting- hee heeee!

I love it when the devs do stuff like this!
I'm really enjoying this game, too. The last M3 offered that I liked well enough to spend a credit on was Ballville, the Beginning.

I am so glad the developers are really listening when we say we'd like a choice between timed vs untimed play. When I read we had that choice in the forum. (Thanks, reviewer Fishies! ) I went ahead and downloaded the trial. When the hour was up (where did the time go?) , I was hooked, and off to buy.

Serf2CavSpaniel,
I looked all over the main page, but did not find the "eggs". Would you please I/M me and let me know what to look for? I'm at a loss.

Loving this game!

I'm having a fun and relaxing time playing but don't have any idea what, or why, I'm doing it! What are the piston like things on the left side? And what about the colored circles under the pistons? I'm probably having serious senior moments and just not seeing something. Love the relaxed mode. Just right for those evenings when I'm more brain dead than usual. Lovely graphics! A buy for me

Just wanted to add my thanks to the developers of this Match-3 game for offering the options of timed and relaxed modes. It is good to see more M-3 developers doing this now.

I'm off to download the demo to see how I like the game. Have been buying a lot more M-3's for the last several months than in previous years. I still enjoy HOG's now and then but played mostly that genre earlier, so I've been purchasing mainly games of other genres lately and am enjoying the variety.

Me too!

I'm now on my 2nd go through and still haven;t worked out what the pistons and circles are for! I'm off to play with the title page now, I notice the man frowns when you press quit

Well I'm not sure about the circles, but I know what the pistons indicate, that is the number of floors in each building.

So you know when you finish a level and it says 'let's move on' it means it moving to the next floor in the building.

My problem is I can't leave a puzzle alone and I'm stuck on some of the limited move levels!

I don't know where I'm at, frankly, but the board has gotten more challenging and I don't want to give up ground. I like it, though. The clockmaker is creepy but am enjoying the artwork and gameplay, otherwise. I love M3's and it mystifies me why I do. It's so repetitive.


No it's ok you can skip them, they're just for bonus gems and experience. I'm a bit of a completest so I like finishing them, but you can skip them if you have to.

Since I don't like to skip things and couldn't figure out a couple of the limited # of move puzzles, I clicked on the ? in the upper right corner (in a circle). Discovered that it will let you solve the puzzle move by move!!!! Fun to see a clear board, and you still get the points for it!!

Nice touch...

Oh wow! Thank you for this. I'll make use of this later.

ETA Each hint costs 3,000 experience points. It's good to have a use for them!
