Scepter of Ra
Guaranteed fun ! Very different Match 3.
A completely new kind of Match 3, challenging, requires thinking and offers great fun.
You have to finish the colored boxes of board.
Is you who will slide the piece on the board to match 3 or more of the same color, and this piece will push the other one box.
You have to make the right choice: the place for the new piece, so that even moving, could match.
Well, only playing to understand how much fun it offers.
3 game modes: normal, timed and untimed. I played normal.

Match 3 With a Difference
And a difference it has. The sounds and animation are very well done and so is the interface. Once the game play is understood, I found it to be fun. Due to the way matching works and to some of the board layouts, they upped the challenging factor. In all, I did enjoy this game.

Not seen anything like this before!
If you remember the old pub game of shove ha'penny, that's the best way of describing this really original Match 3.
Collect glyphs by matching 3 blocks of the same colour as them over them.
Most levels are fairly easy, though it can be hard to remember where the glyphs are if you've had to push a differently coloured block over them - sometimes I just had to keep pushing blocks around and making random matches until the glyphs appeared again.
A few levels are tricky, and you really need to master the technique of moving blocks by pushing them with other blocks, and use a bit of lateral thinking.
Having completed the game my only negative comment would be the lack of any minigames or puzzles - it's the same game all through, but an attractive, very original one!

Glad I Bought This!
This game has 3 different modes. Relaxed (no timer), Normal (more generous timer), Timed (must be quickest). I started off playing in the Normal mode, but some of the puzzles threw me for a loop, so I switched to Relaxed mode. If you enjoy logic puzzles & match 3 type games, you will probably like this game. It has several hours of play available in Relaxed mode alone. Now I will go back & try to finish Normal & then, if I am lucky, Timed.
I don't follow the stories in the games, but this did have a story if you like that aspect of a game. The puzzles are pretty mind- bending & you really have to follow the arrows & try tactics to get through the levels. The music was nice, but repetitive to me. The colors are vivid & sharp. If you run Win7, you will need to put the game into *compatible for XP* mode, or you will have graphics issues.
I will be playing this over & over til I master it. It's also relaxing in the Relaxed mode. I really like this game!

Unique Twist sadly fails
This game is different. A great idea, but sadly, this fails. Here are my thoughts:
Unique Twist- the first of its kind. I have never seen another Match 3 like it. Great for a challenge, or if you're lokng for a break from Jewel Quest
Different modes, but on the downside, no explanations of these modes.
Annoying sounds made me want to qut the game immediately
Doesn't hook me
A little too hard
The developers had a great idea for this game but it needs a lot of improvement.
