I didn't like this game at all. It took a long time for it to load on my HP with Windows 8.1. I didn't like having to take turns with a monster. All I looked for was things to hit him with. I didn't take time to make any of the other matches I need to progress in this game. I didn't have to play long to realize this wasn't the game for me.

I own a game similar to this one, called "Puzzle Hero". I love that game. You take turns in a M3 game to defeat the creature on the other side of the board - your enemy.

This game play the same way. However, whereas in "Puzzle Hero" you can buy and upgrade weapons and armour for your character with coins you earn, you can't do that in this game.

Also the colours and the graphics are much better in "Puzzle Hero".

What I disliked most while playing "Quest of the Sorceress" (apart from the fact that Ihad to use that ugly cursor and couldn't choose the system one), was the constant flashing when the two characters attacked each other.
Firstly, I don't like to play games that add a lightning-type of flashes, and secondly while the flashes occurred, I couldn't see the details of the board. So you didn't know whether your opponent had a M3 or a M4 in his favour.

In "Puzzle Hero" you see everything clearly - no flashes. When you do a M4 instead of just a M3, you get to go again. From what I have seen, I am guessing you can do the same with "Quest of the Sorceress", but because of all the flashes, I couldn't be sure.

It's too bad, because I like this type of game, but the ugly cursor, the ugly board tiles, the limited gameplay, and the flashes, make this a no-buy for me.

I love M3 games, but lately they've become rather repetitive. This is a refreshing change of pace. Yes, there are flashing lights, but you can increase your skills by earning diamonds as you fight off the enemy. It's fast-paced and requires a different kind of thinking -- do I attack or defend, or try to improve my health to fend off the other player -- all while making matches. It's worth a coupon to me!

I want to compliment Valdy for an excellent review.

I own Puzzle Quest 1, Puzzle Quest 2 & Puzzle Quest Galactrix. All of which I find truly exceptional games & I believe Quest of the Sorceress is attempting to mimic these games. But because of all the flashes - it is difficult to see the effects of your moves and virtually impossible to see the effects of your enemy's moves. I was not even able to see my opponent's moves.

For me, the most challenging part of this game is attempting to figure out what if any strategy there was. There is no help and the instructions were of little value. I want to enjoy a game because I understand what I am doing and enjoying it. The struggle to understand what-the-heck the game is about should not be the only challenging part of the game.

Puzzle Hero is a good game, but for me Puzzle Quest was more of a challenge. If anyone knows of a game as "worthy" as Puzzle Quest for a Match 3 chess game - please PM me. I saw others mention Puzzle Quest in their reviews of Quest of the Sorceress so I immediately downloaded it, only to be disappointed.

To know why I was disappointed, please read Valdy's excellent review.

I love this game. At first it was hard to figure out how to defend myself but after playing and figuring things out I found it to be very challenging and yet awesome.

I've defeated the challengers by learning their ways. It doesn't tell you how to play or what's the process of winning but it's a challenge which is what I like in a game.

I'm mostly HO player but Quest of the Sorceress is a great game!
