Cradle of Egypt 4.5 5 81 81
This is how Match-3 games are done! A traditional Match3 that gives hours upon hours of playtime. Although it is swap-to-match only the makers have managed to create enough variation to keep it interesting. As the fourth in the Cradle-of series (the others being Cradle of Persia, Cradle of Rome, Cradle of Rome2) it upholds the standard of excellent background graphics, beautiful tiles, smooth matching/drop. No problems doing matches during a cascade, while tiles are still dropping. The premise is to 'build' Egypt, from its creation up through the historical ages, and your ultimate goal is to rise from peasanthood to Pharaoh. You do matching levels to earn resources such as gold, food or materials - these are used to purchase new buildings for your Egypt map. As you unlock new buildings, to 'get' them you must first play mini games that are much more varied and interesting than in CoR2, for example. These mini-games are skippable. There are 100 levels. The usual powerups and obstacle tiles #aah, the dreaded stone slabs that are only broken if you do a vertical match on top of them#. A new twist is the little chests that pop up as rewards for matching the same resource four times in a row - these will give you extra of that resource. There is a choice of timed or un-timed modes. If you finish in un-timed mode, you can start a new game with the same player profile in timed mode, your trophies and achievements will carry over. Timed mode is actually not too difficult, as you may purchase more time with your resources if you choose - only if you run out of resources will you lose a life. Earn trophies for skilled playing - i.e different citizens on the Egypt map that will give you some kind of bonus; and awards/achievements such as Play all the mini-games #without skipping#. Other game-modes are unlocked after playing Adventure mode - Tourney mode after earning a certain number of points, Blitz mode after finishing the game. these modes give more hours of play time, so you get massive game value for your money. No problems with left-hand mouse setup. November 23, 2011
Best Cradle game yet. I have very much enjoyed the cradle games. This one is the best yet to date that I have played.Beautiful graphics and cool power ups and bonus ups with the various levels.Another hit Big Fish. November 23, 2011
Great Match 3 Fun If you enjoyed Cradle of Persia,Cradle of Rome and Cradle of Rome II you will enjoy Cradle of Egypt. Like the games mentioned you build up the country by earning gold, supplies and food. November 24, 2011
match 3 heaven Thank you Thank you for a wonderful game with "no timer mode" (relaxed mode) I am a Match 3 fan and I am able to enjoy the game so much better with no timer unless I want to play against the clock!!! November 24, 2011
Great Match Three Game! This is an excellent Match Three. In keeping with the Persia and Rome Theme the play was challenging and fast paced on the timed game. Great to earn points and then build your paradise with them. The graphics are superb and hold your eye. If you are looking for a great Match Three, this should be added to your collection.

Fun Match 3 game This was one of the better match3 games that you have put out in a while... i loved playing it and definetly adding to my genere of match 3 games. Great graphics. November 23, 2011
One more addictive game! I love Match 3, and this is a quite good! Very well done, colorful, the level of difficulty increases at each phase. In addition to earning "weapons" (when you match axe, powder keg, etc, you fill them to use) to destroy pieces, have to collect food, supplies, coins, to build their city. Really enjoyable and provides hours and hours of fun. February 22, 2012
Gorgeous, relaxing game This is the first game I've played of the Cradle series, and I was very impressed with the gorgeous graphics and animations. I'd call it a "top of the line" game. When you've played a lot of matching games, it's easy to be blase, and one of the things that really appealed to me about this one is that you match with a purpose: to collect food, money, and bricks to build your own animated civilization. Generally I avoid anything with a whiff of history, but a good game is a good game, and I thoroughly enjoyed my "time" with this one. November 26, 2011
Late nights : I will finish at the next level. Lol. I usually play Adventure and IHOG games but thought I would try this Match 3, my first. From the moment I started playing I was hooked. I haven't finished it yet and I have had hours of play. I am playing in relaxed mode which is great because it gives me time to finish the level. It is also great to build and collect different items. I am looking forward to reaching the end which I am sure is not far away now. For an adventure nut I am enjoying this Match 3 for a change of thinking. Well done developers. December 16, 2011
