Rainbow Web 3
King of Spiders? Disappearing Town Residents?
The Evil Spider was overthrown in the previous version of this game. However, you have learned that all the residents of another town have disappeared - at the hands of the same evil spider. Can you overthrow him again? Can you rebuild the town and find all the residents?
Had it turned off - sorry - teeny tiny 7 week old rescued puppy sleeping on my arm.
This game offers the uniqueness of being a match 3 (or more) of colored balls, while at the same time being a "word" type game, in that you have to make matches that will remove the letters off the web that form the sentence shown in the upper left hand corner of the screen. You earn points (fairy dust) with which you repair the town's buildings (i.e., the tailor shop). Once completed, on to the next one!
My only issue is that there appears to be only 1 type of bonus and that is earned as you make matches. A hammer in the upper right hand of the screen becomes charged and can be used to strike out 1 letter. Charge it again to strike another letter. I would think making matches of more than 3 as in other match 3 games, other bonuses would be awarded.
Other than that, this Glam-ma thinks this is a top-notch game of match 3 and letters/words. I hope you will at least try the free demo - it's only an hour of your time.

Lift the veil of darkness and save the kingdom?
The Rainbow games have progressed with each addition to the series.
These things have been added in Rainbow Web III:
? More ways to play the webs
? More variety of mini games
? More tasks
? More scenery
? More adventure
? More Story
? More colorful artwork
? More fun!
And one thing has, thankfully, been removed:
? No timer!
This is one tough puzzle game disguised as a match 3. The basic mechanic has colored balls strung along a spider web. Some balls have letters. You must match the colors by exchanging balls to knock out the letters. Trust me, this is not always as simple as it sounds.
The main idea in this game, it appears, is to make the matches that get the most points. The faster you rack up the points, the faster you will lift the curse from a town person's shop. But then, you are only one step closer to freeing that person from the spider's lair. Tricky puzzles await to free them all.
The game can be a relaxing challenge, or a relaxing activity. As you make any kind of match, with or without letters, you build a hammer. Once activated, you can use it to knock out a pesky letter. So, in essence, you can just play this as a match three with a helpful power up.. The challenge comes in knocking out the letters on your own. But one thing is for sure -- if you have not played any of these games, it is definitely different.
And even if you have, if you enjoyed the others, I think you will like this one even more. The art work is lovely, the story and additional activities add interest.There are several hours of pleasant, varied, game play.
The background music is rather relaxing, actually, and there is certainly replay value. There are no actual spiders to be seen. either.

A novel match 3 game
I bought this game some time ago but have only just finished it as like most match 3 games it gets a little repetitive after a while. I liked the detailed graphics as you restore various buildings using points gained by clearing letters from the match 3 screens based on spiders' webs. It is a relaxing game as there is no timer and if you get stuck you can restart the screen. I also liked the fact that If there are no moves available the screen automatically resets. Another plus point for me is that it runs on my Samsung N10 netbook. I was not overly keen on the music but it can be turned off.

I liked this game. The graphics are amazing and I liked the way they gradually refined. I'm puzzled about how long this game lasts and can't find any information on that. If it ends like I think it does, I would have liked more levels...or at least to be able to play the game over. That's how much fun it is. :-) That's also why I only gave it a 4.

Defnitely Demo It First!
I wish I could have.
- No timer
- You can buy items for locations (but the graphics for those locations are cartoonish)
- It's fairly easy to figure out how the puzzles work
- Colorful and crisp, other than the locations
- Gives unwanted hints after 10-15 seconds of inactivity on the web, which removes the challenge and is very distracting. And you can't turn it off. Bleah.
I only played this for 15-20 minutes. It just wasn't much fun. If I could award 2.5 stars, I would. I'm really on the fence about whether to recommend or not, so I'm leaving that part blank.

This was a fun game. I really enjoyed playing the web match 3. As the game went on they became more challenging. I would have loved this game even more if it was only unlimited web challenges.
There were a few things I didn't care for.
-The constant glittering of the web was very stressful on my eyes.
-I felt there wasn't any point to the story. Why not just have a game of webs.
-The HOG's were weak and not enjoyable
