Another sugar coated Match 3 game by the same devs who offer Pretty Snails 1 & 2, Owl Rescue, Flying Fish and Mystery Loss. Everything's the same, with the exception of finding items hidden within the map levels. You can play in Relaxed or Normal difficulty modes, and this is a Limited Moves game with different goals for each level such as making matches over all ice tiles or earning a specific amount of points.

All Match 3 games by this dev have the same unusual feature, 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.

Large matches or T & L shaped matches will give you power-ups on the board which are color specific such as Spiral Candies, Colored Santas, or Super Spirals. Combining power-ups will create mega explosions.

I hate Match 3 games that make me wait after each match, for all the tiles to stop, before making my next match. I also hate it when I have to wait again after the level is complete, for all the tiles to finish doing their explosions, and adding my unused moves. I prefer a fast paced Match 3 game. I'm sure you'll love this game if you loved Pretty Snails, but for me personally, it's a big NO!

Why oh why do Developers insist on forcing tutorials? A match 3 game is not exactly a mind destroying concept to grasp. Tutorials should be optional. I refuse to buy any game that tries to control how I play.

I love all the games by this developer I have bought all of them including this one. Finally they have made it so the game can be played in relaxed mode. So for all the players who did not want to play the other games cause they were limited moves, now you can play this one in relaxed mode like the other games it is match 3 and totally adorable give it ago you may enjoy it.

I recommend this game

I didn't buy the other games by this developer, because there was no relax mode. I bought this one because there is.

The game's all right but I don't understand the star system.

H Pandashie - I worked out the star system is your target points - ie if you reach the target points you will get the 3 stars regardless of your total number of moves.

So at the beginning of each level, see what your target score is. If you finish too soon (which is what I was trying to do at the beginning), you may not have reached the high score that gives you the extra star.

So now if I think I'm going to finish too early I make matches on another part of the board until I reach the total target score - and voila your star will appear! Then you can finish with your last collectible / ice box etc..

I decided to buy the game because I actually quite like it - it's colourful and fun, and not too stressful - sometimes the dark games are a bit tiring and this is a great fill-in for some lighthearted gaming..
