Old Clockmaker's Riddle
Glitchy and confusing!
I played the demo to this game, and I like it. It was pretty, the music was good, and the demo levels were fun. I also saw that there was a "relaxed" mode, so I figured it would have some re-playability. Well, I can not FIND how to turn on any "relaxed" mode. The instructions are WAY to vague. I know that whatever else this game entails, it's to match 3 gems, no duh! But, the instructions don't tell you anything else about the tools, the upgrades, why certain things were locked and how to unlock them, anything! Also, after I finally powered my through to the ending, there was none! NOTHING happened! There was no ending sequence, no options for a "game plus". Actually, right as I cleared the last bored, the game quit unexpectedly, like it freaked out that I had reached the end! I am so disappointed in this game!

Old Clockmaker's not-so-tricky-Riddle
I'm not a big match 3 kind of girl anyway, but this one was really quite unexciting. My young kids would probably like it, but there really was no challenge. Each level was the same as the previous. I stopped playing with about 20 minutes left of the trial.

Old Clockmaker's Riddle
I lasted about 20 minutes in the demo. It is a match 3 game. It has cartoonish graphics. This game just didn't knock me off my chair. But as always give it a try other fishies may love it. Happy gaming in the pond.

Needs better Instructions.
I am a smart person and I have been trying to figure this game out for weeks but there is not enough instruction and even after reading game reviews and looking for strategy guides on other sites, Im just at my wits end with this game!
Yes it a match 3 game BUT you are trying to put back together a town. Each gem you collect is counted and thats how you buy potions aka powerups to help you within the levels. After that though, it becomes unclear to me what happens. I was playing a match 3 board when it tells me that my people are leaving so it sends me back to the town but when Im there it doesn't look like anything is really happening. You can click on the buildings with the yellow/green suns and upgrade them but then you have to visit the potion maker again to buy potions to stop people from leaving. I didn't understand why they were leaving to begin with.
I played on timed but it made no sense to me because once the timer was up, it still let you play and you could complete it.
I just felt like I was moving pieces to move pieces. That there was no logic to anything I was doing and this game is one that requires a strategy although the instructions just tell you how to play the match 3 game not what else is going on. Glad I got this as a daily deal because had I spent full price on this, i would not be a happy camper. Usually I don't give games a bad review if I don't understand them but I don't find the gameplay itself interesting either. This game needs better instructions and a better story line and a less complex power up system. Just not a fan of this game.

Terrible, Terrible, Terrible
The game-play goes nowhere, you do the same thing again and again and the levels never seem to get any harder.
The tutorial is simple to say the least, and the graphics are basic.
Even the storyline is boring and nothing new.
