Well, it started out great where I bought it with nearly 30 minutes left on the demo. Sadly, if you've played other games by this dev you'll notice that once you get through the first half of the game most, if not all, of the second half is copied from earlier games. I thought it couldn't get any worse than Owl Rescue where the last third was identical to two other games, but now not only is half the game straight up cloned from elsewhere, many of the levels appeared in the first Pretty Snails and I even saw one instance where the same level appeared twice! I haven't finished all 150 levels yet, but now I just want to be done. What a letdown.

If you haven't played any of Intersol's other games, it's cute and challenging...limited moves only and you definitely have to think to win the levels after the first 20 boards. An improvement from the first Pretty Snails is there's a player profile creation option now so you don't have to do a file folder workaround to replay. But with Intersol getting shorter and shorter on the creative aspect, I can't really recommend it unless you haven't played anything else by them, or you're really a diehard fan of doing the same thing all the time.

I agree with SynthpopAddict - 100%. I have played all of the other games by Intersol and have enjoyed playing them -- but -- I'm so disappointed that the devs couldn't come up with different boards and challenges. Yes, there was a different story, although the ending left me feeling like there was something missing? Really though, the story wouldn't be a problem, if the actual game play was "spruced-up" with some new ideas.

All Match 3 games by this dev have the same unusual feature, and I really didn't notice any big changes from the original Pretty Snails. Every time you make a match, sections of the board do a shuffle as they move into different positions, usually ruining what could have been an epic setup! On the negative end, you cannot make a move quickly or back to back until all tiles have repositioned or explosions finish doing their thing.

Most of the level goals require you to make matches over the Moss filled tiles within a specific number of moves, but some levels require you to make a specified amounts of specific Shell matches, or earn a specified amount of points.

Large matches or T & L shaped matches will give you power-ups on the board which are color specific such as Super Shells, Directional Bombs or Color Coded Flower bombs. Boosters are added as you progress such as +5 to add 5 additional moves, or a Trowel to remove an obstacle or tile of your choice.

After every third level, you can search for a Hidden Object as shown as a quest, somewhere on the Level Map, at first the objects are obvious, but become increasingly more difficult to locate.

I really didn't see anything new added to this Match 3 sequel to Pretty Snails, except for the computer freeze feature. If you don't mind a Limited Moves type Match 3 game, and you can get it to work in it's entirety, it may be a good family game, but after playing the first version, this one just seems like a repeat to me.
