Val'Gor: The Beginning
IS IT TIMED or ISN'T IT?
This is the kind of timed game that I REALLY like; when the timer runs out, the game gives you a CHOICE to restart the level or to continue playing the level until completion. This is a GREAT concept as I've many timed games that has ended up being deleted from my computer because I'd hit a brick wall in trying to complete a level.
There is also several Match3 game boards -- rotation of some of the boards, sending the bubbles to the top, releasing some fragments, chains, etc.
If you match 4-5 or more, certain power-ups appear on the board (these are in addition to the major power-up on the side above the timer) which will eliminate tiles across the board, diagonally, rearrange the board, and there's one that reminds me of an angel but I haven't been able to grasp an understanding as to what it does.
The game begins with an interesting story but it doesn't seem to follow through with it -- kind of disappointing but hey, this review is just based on the demo so maybe the storyline will continue somewhere down the line.

Love this game!
Someone mentioned they spent hours...I have played this game over and over and over. It is just nice to take a few minutes out of your day and relax. And this game is perfect for that.
Has some pretty good challenges. Each time, I try a different way. And those that the time runs out, I try to beat it the next time. Good fun is all it is!

I love this game!
I love this match 3 game. Has several different game/styles in it. I like some more than others. Any time I feel stressed or just want to relax more, I fire this game up. Not many games earn a permenant place on my desktop.

A Fun But Easy Diversion
It's not the hardest match 3 game out there but in a way, that's nice. It's a good game to just pick up and play a few levels without too much stress. It won't make you pull your hair out ike some levels of Jewel Quest might.

Addicting but pointless
I don't know why, but I've spent hours playing this game.
The game play itself is fine with some nice, original twists on match-3. The trouble is, after the first few boards it's pretty much the same thing over and over. I'm over 150 now and nothing really new.
There are no breakouts givng rewards for progress, getting more spells from the wizard or whatever. After the first few go-rounds you have all the power-ups you're going to get.and have met all the bad guys and helpers.
That said, if you want to spend a lazy, rainy afternoon with your brain in neutral this is just the thing. When the timer runs out no biggie, it just keeps running unless you want to re-start the level to make better time.
I'm going to recommend the game, but just barely. What there is of it is pretty good quality, the programmers did a good job. With someone to do a better job on the scenarios there might be a pretty good game coming.

This is one of the most boring Match 3 games I have ever played. The visuals are nice, but the game is very easy to beat. The story line is non-existent.
