Funny puzzle game!
The graphics are beautiful. The gameplay is unique. I have only seen a few games like this. There are levers/platforms you turn to get balls into cups at the bottom of the board. It starts out slow and gets hard and fast quickly. The storyline is well written and engaging.

You flip levers
Liked the beautiful sorceress and the bright, fairy tale style graphics (which look much better in the game than they do in the screenshots). Wasn't so crazy about the game play, which is flipping levers to divert balls of different colors into corresponding pots. That's pretty much the game, with some variations thrown in. It's worth trying to see if that kind of game appeals to you, especially if you like flipping levers in pinball games.

Make Spells, Kill the Monsters.
This is an interesting in the way that it is played. There are 3 difficulty levels. I recommend starting on easy, at least for a few levels, so you get the hang of the game play. The first level is a short, not too informative, tutorial.
The game board consists of multiple paddles. On the left and right of the game board are gold pointers. At the bottom are 3 colored pots. The goal is to direct the falling orbs (spells) into the correct pots by manipulating the paddles. Gold orbs go into the gold pointers.
Once you have cast a spell, it shows up in one of the 3 orb/pot colors beneath the pots. This area can only hold 4 "spells". Use these to help you in the game. For instance, there is a destroy all blue orbs spell, destroy all green orbs and so on. There is a "book" that describes what each spell does.
During the game play, these little bumblebees showed up. I figured out that you have to click on them to make them disappear. After every 3 levels, you have to kill a monster. You use the same paddle principle but instead of getting orbs into certain colored pots, you manipulate the paddles to send potions onto the monster who is walking back and forth at the bottom of the game board. You only have "x" number of potions to use.
You start each level with 3 lives. For each orb that goes into the wrong colored pot, you lose a life. Get 3 in a row of the same color and you get an extra life. Difficult as there are rarely the same 3 colors coming down through the paddles at one time.
I got bored with this game. Amazing, I know, but I did. It is definitely not a buy for me. However, I do encourage those who can multi-task, have great agility and speed to try the hour-long free demo.
