7 Wonders: Ancient Alien Makeover
A new twist on a classic match-3!
I decided to try out the demo first, since I assumed this 7 Wonders would be like past versions in this series. Boy was I wrong! The developers really spiced up the game play by adding more explosions and faster chain matching. It's a nice break from playing adventures games that you can pick up and put down whenever! The villages are also a blast to decorate. Recommended!

Fun! Fun! Fun!
If you enjoy building things or decorating, you'll love this game. Yes, it's a typical match 3 board but it's not a typical match 3 game. The key is getting certain types of matches which earn you credits to rebuild the alien villages. Watching the villages unfold is eye-pleasing and brings out our inner child's delight in surprises. And there's so much to do! You have to re-build the ancient villages, you can pop off to some mini games at will, and there's your own village to build from scratch using coins you've earned with your other tasks. The mini-games are unique and challenging. The standard board layout has brightly colored pieces; in fact there are bright colors throughout so the eye is constantly delighted. This is my new favorite match 3!

Definitely A Keeper
With the alien theme, I wasn't sure of how strange it was going to be and, for that reason, I almost passed it up. Because I like the 7 Wonders series so much, I decided to stick it out and I'm glad I did. As soon as my hour was up I purchased it. The graphics, the colors, the challenge, the Middle East music . . . the developers outdid themselves. If you like this series, you'll enjoy this version. I'm going back to play. Happy Gaming!!!

Beautiful Little Match 3 with Fun City Building Elements
This is a buy for me. It's a cute game with beautiful graphics, fun sound, and a wonderful city building element.
Things that I loved:
1) Gorgeous tiles
2) Little guys running around to pick up blocks that I've blown up.
3) Creative and funny little characters to watch.
4) Fun powers for a little extra "pow" and blowing up items
5) Lots of progressive unlocks.
6) Lots of fun and cute achievements!
My only complaint is that the game is a little too easy, but it has 3 modes of play. I picked normal, and I should have picked the highest level.

Awesome Match 3 game!!
This game is how match 3 games are done, just like the other 7 wonders games! In this game you can build more wonders than 7 wonders 4 magical mystery tour and you can create your own village!! It's soo addicting!!

7 Wonders Ancient Alien Makeover
I loved it! Right up my alley! I already have another 7 Wonders game .Had different mini games which I enjoyed. Was a little difficult for me to do these, but eventually figured it out.

Excellent Match 3
I'm not a seasoned M3 player. This game had it all. 4 levels to choose from. Little towns to build. Achievements to earn. Screen easy to see with colored blocks, not items of any sort. Great background music. Clear instructions. I really had to read the instructions as they popped up as there's a lot going on here. I haven't purchased any M3 games before, but this one is a buy for me. :)

Where's the premium edition???
I am NOT an expert gamer, so experts may find it boring, but I enjoy this game very much. For me it is challenging enough to keep my interest, yet not so difficult that it frustrates me into giving up. I never start a game with tips on, but this time it was a good idea to use tips because it took me a while to figure things out. The premium edition would be a nice plus, as it has extra content, but for now I am nowhere near done with the basic edition... there's plenty here to keep your attention!
