Lost in Night
On my wish list!
very straight forward M3, with chain and group options. biggest issue was collecting enough gold to buy upgrades. puzzles get more challenging as you go- but i turn off the timers, because that's how i like it.
Asking for this one for christmas!

This game uses crayon box colors to create the background and the fanciful dwellings. There are flowers, fruits, vegetables and trees that become homes when you earn money to build them. The further along the game progresses, the more investment you need to make to Upgrade your structures. There is a cute side game of betting on snails on a racetrack, where you can either add to or deduct from your accumulated winnings. The game allows you to continue playing even after the village is completed. This reminds me a lot of "Fishdom ", which I also liked. The figures on the game boards are on the small side, but become easier to see once the background colors change. I have only played this in relaxed mode, so have no opinion about how challenging it would be with a timer. Fairy tale graphics, and a relaxing game, though fairly short.

cute little match 3
I was disappointed when the free trial ended. It's not my usual genre of game so that surprised me. What also surprised me during play was that there were no real directions - do I choose swap, match, etc.? What are the coins for? I've played M3s before so I was familiar with the "bombs", hexagons, locks, etc. and finally realized I could build a village with my coins. The reviews helped quite a bit, although I did read them afterwards. The graphics were bright and artful and the villages you build quite lovely. Give me this a try. It's very relaxing and addictive.

Needs larger Tiles
I absolutely love this game!! It is Not timed so I can play at my leisure and spent as much or as little time on each level as I want. BUT and it is a big one... The symbols are so small I have to squint to see them. Make these games bigger for all us baby boomers who are going blind!!!
I would have given the game the big 5 stars I loved it that much. eye strain does make for happy camper

Great 3-Match Game
Agree with other fishes that this game is a good one for all adults and well as children. Great graphics and you can play it three different ways and at two different levels. It is fun to see the village appear.

I would have bought it if...
This is a typical match 3 game with a little more flexibility. There are three match modes and a menu that allows you to select which you'd like to play and enables you to swap between them any time you become tired of one. The swap mode switches between straight line and diagonal match ups which keeps you on your toes. Building the village is fun because of the fantasy buildings and bright colors but there are no options to place buildings where you want them so this portion is not as much fun as some. You basically choose a building and then buy 'upgrades' until it's completed. What attracted me to this game is the wonderful use of color!! What kept me from purchasing this game is that the playing board is smaller than the typical match 3 game board. This should not be a problem for those with younger eyes so I'm recommending the game even though I won't be purchasing it.

Cute Hallween Match 3 Game!
Great Graphics, and a lot of fun! Its easy to lose yourself as you enjoy levels that increase in challenge and build your Halloween Town. I would have loved if there was a story with it, but it is a fun game to play as is.

Size Does Matter!
What ever happened to Fishdom games where you had large boards with icons that you can actually distinguish from one another. I do think that with M3 games, size is important; especially for these tired eyes of mine. Lost in Night is a M3 game with three types of Matches to choose from: group, Swap and Chain. The graphics are sharp and music rather tedious. The icons are small and after a while, gameplay puts a strain on my vision. There are power ups and trophies to win. The best thing about this game is that you start building a village but you have no choice with regard to placing items. Each item has three up-grades so you are busy at earning coins. As for the storyline, I really did not come across one, you just have an empty field and its night-time, no dialogue, no story as far as I could make out. I really think that the devleopers have missed the mark here, a rather dismal attempt a M3 game with a playing field that just does not satisfy me. Sorry, Lost in the Night will LOST me after 40 minutes of gameplay.

This game is a variation on the match 3 citybuilding of Cradle Of Rome and similar series. The original take in this game is that you can unlock different gameplay modes.
Unfortunately, the game doesn't add anything besides the unlockable modes. From playing through the one hour demo, I didn't see any resource besides gold. Building the city and upgrading the buildings feels like sticking pictures on a background. The buildings give no visible bonus, and there's no real benefit to building them.
Visuals and audio is bland, but not flawed. The graphics fit, the music and sound effects are not bad, and the game supports widescreen resolutions.
I can recommend the game if you need something slightly interactive to rest your eyes on, but if you want fast paced gameplay and a feeling of progress, you're better off looking at the games this game copied.
