This review is based on playing the 1 hour demo.

From the Sky is a game very similar to the 4 Elements games.

Game Play
You mark out a match 3 (or more) path with your mouse. You have a game character that has to reach the light. In order to get him there you need to make matches around him. You need to make them in such a way that he moves forward. He ends up where your last mouse release was - so you need to make sure you make the match in the right direction.

Unlike the 4 elements games you don't have such a large explosion when you make a large match, that means you have to make a lot more matches too advance. In addition the game character will not fall down or move except by making a match next to him. That requires you to really think and plan the matches and not just make them.

The good, the bad, the boring?
These developers have created a long game by placing 3 or more lights on a board and then 3 or 4 locks on them, this means you have to get the character to the lights and then make 3 or 4 matches while he is there. In contrast other games have kept you busy by building large and intricate boards - this one has not. However, this strategy is challenging and requires you to think carefully about the matches you make. On the other hand you can get stuck and frustrated because there are no tiles to match near him and so you're making a lot of matches to either get a power-up or to have the right tiles fall down. This is really going to depend on your personality - whether you're going to find it fun or frustrating. I would really recommend you try it for yourself.

Mini Games
I played one of the mini games - they were impossible but a lot of fun. It was a cute feature that they had added.
