I really only opened it to make sure you could play timed (I will NEVER buy another untimed M3) and that was enough for a buy. The first one was great and looks like this one is too!

Does anyone know how many levels there are? I just finished the demo and got to level 25....
I really liked the original and found it to be a lot more challenging than this follow-up.
I'm hoping it gets more difficult as the levels progress...?

I have played the trial version of both Trial of the God games this morning. I found this version to be very simple compared to the first. There is not enough challenge at the beginning of this one, timed or untimed! The first one Ariadne's Fate I was challenged right away! JMHO...

I beta'd this game and have been anxiously awaiting its arrival. There are some unique (at least to me) twists on the usual M3 play - releasing playing cards, moving an oilcan to a wagon wheel - that I really enjoyed and the graphics, though not usually a huge part of M3s, are just fabulous. I purchased it immediately (KNEW I should have held off on last night's 5 game Mother's Day Sale purchases LOL).

Um, there are (what looks like) 100 levels in the regular game (just made it to the desert and that has 50 levels like the first half) and I don't know how many in the Ariadne's Loom section.

Looks to be well worth it!

I do not care for match 3 games at all. If there were less match 3 and more HOG in this, I would probably have played the whole hour and possibly bought it.

30% off or not, this is one game I will not finish the demo or purchase.

Very disappointed again!

I agree that this game is overly simple at the beginning, but it gets more interesting as different tasks are assigned. I like the fact that the task is changed every few levels, and involves different skills, some of which are best done with the "jewel" upgrades. Since you get those for making long matches, the game encourages smart playing rather than just matching any old 3. The HOG at the end of each group of levels is not hard, but still a nice goodie. I also enjoy rebuilding the temple (you can play several levels, and then do several part of the building at one time). Even though it likely will not turn out to be a major challenge as a game, it is a well done, attractive game with some original twists. I'll call it Lisa-approved with .

I'm not a Match 3 enthusiast usually - they have to have something a bit more to them than the usual m3 games. this one though, has got me hooked! The gameplay changes very frequently and some of the levels are really difficult (for me anyway). It has elements to the game that I've never come across before.

Unlike someone else's comment, I'm glad there is a timeless option as I'm not as fast as I used to be!

So, if you aren't usually a M3 fan, it might be worth giving this one a go.

I just finished playing Ariadne's Fate and loved it! I'm still working on the looms. But I've already bought Ariadne's Journey because I had such a great time with the first one. Having a choice between timed and untimed is the best. When I first started playing match 3's there were only timed ones and so after a couple of games I put them aside because it was too frustrating and stressful. I'm grateful when game developers give us the choice then everyone is happy.

Happy Mom's Day to all mothers out there.

I'm not much of a Match 3 either but I tried this on in both modes and liked it. Needless to say I bought it at SUPERMOM price.

Thanks for the good reviews or else I probably would not have tried it.

Don't let a quick trial in 20 minutes color your judgment about this one. I did the first 20 minutes and had to leave for church, thinking I wouldn't be getting this game. WRONG!!! I decided to finish out my trial after church and discovered that this is a game that starts out easy but gets more challenging as you play. Suffice it to say, I got this one! There are a variety of challenges, and from time to time a bit of HOG as a diversion. I'm usually a fan of HOGs, and play Match 3 games for relaxation, and this one has engaged me. After you rebuild the first temple, well, lo and behold, there's another one! I'm giving this game

Tried the first one. Didn't care for it. But this one for some reason I really like.
I got hooked on Match 3's after playing Around the World in 80 Days and FINISHING IT!!
Thanks BF

Playing timed of course but already on the 17th level I'm getting PLENTY of challenge lol I'm loving it! Much more varied than the first one I think, don't care for the HOG element but otherwise great.

Does this game get really hard very early in the game? I used to play M 3 games but then they got hard before the demo was over so I quit playing them. This one is fun. I just don't want to buy it if it gets hard real fast.

I, too, have been waiting since the Beta to buy this one and it's been a loooong wait. All I did was open the game to make sure it ran, went thru the first M3 and then exited to buy. Super game for all the reasons I like a game - beautifully crafted with super clear graphics, nice music, Relaxed Mode (the first didn't have Relaxed, but a generous timer) long play, a restoration component, everything.

The only thing it doesn't have is the humor of the first one. But that's ok.
