This is the gripe I have with most M3 games. When I check "relaxed" mode, I mean I want to move at my own pace, which is senior citizen pace. I hate the "sand" which eats up all my squares I've already uncovered. It makes my nerves raw and makes me yell at my computer. I end up regretting wasting any time on the M3 game at all and delete it before I have gotten very far into the game. If I wanted to be frustrated and aggravated, I'd play the games on Facebook. I wish the sand had shown up earlier in the game when I was demoing it, and I wouldn't have wasted a PCC on it.

Its a perfectly good remake (almost a duplicate) of 80 Days Around The World but they forgot how to fill up my wide screen in the remake process.

If you have already bought 80 Days Around The World then keep playing that game - the only addition here is a relaxed mode option that doesn't work so well farther into the game.


Jkuci, I saw your post above in the review thread and it is nice that you mentioned the relaxed mode option in this game. However, I wish you had explained your meaning when you said the relaxed mode doesn't work so well farther into the game. What exactly doesn't work so well with the relaxed mode later in the game?

Exactly. When I buy a game with a "relaxed" mode I expect it to be RELAXED. This game is nothing of the sort, what with the #*#(&%@ sand and the bombs and the tumbleweeds. I'm VERY disappointed in this.

Yes far from a relaxed game I enjoyed the demo but it had none of the sand or bombs I am on level 84 and cannot find the way to detenate the 2 bombs in the lower corners so can't release the pieces up top that I need to finish the level1 minute is not near enought I am ready to give up

Frustrated

I really enjoyed the lower levels of this game. Why do these games have to be so irritating? Why can't we just play a game for fun - the relaxed mode is stressful. Level 50 is practically unwinnable with sand, brush, and the artifact pieces automatically go above the windstorm. And when you click on the amulet, it strikes the windstorm!!! Doesn't it read it's own instructions that you cannot destroy the windstorm. Good Grief.

I posted this in another thread of this game:

I don't like "timed games" myself, so I stay away from them. (I'm a senior citizen, myself). But, I've learned that even in a "relaxed mode" game as this, it's only as relaxing as you make it. So what, if you have to replay a level or 2? It's not so you're saving lives. I've found a way so far, to beat the sand. Keep trying to find 4 or more matches to charge up the amulet and use that to knock your puzzle pieces down and out. At the same time, knock a square or more of sand. Just keep plugging away, but take deep breaths to keep your blood pressure down. If you find it frustrating, then stop, go on to something else, then come back later. It is certainly not worth getting angry over.

I like playing untimed match 3 games, but I find this one just too similar to others by the same developer. It is quality, that's for sure, they don't do anything otherwise, but a bit derivative. It's better than Around the World in 80 Days, which it was compared to in the reviews.



The names of the developers are at the beginning credits of the games as they are loading. You can't miss them... unless you are AFK or have your eyes shut.

When it says relaxed....the challenges shouldn't be timed. You can't relax when you know you didn't get what you paid for in Call of Ages.
