Atlantis: Pearls of the Deep
Jar of Marbles on steroids...
I bought this the day it was released at another site, because I am a "Jar" junkie. This sooooo far surpasses the Jar games! It's marble dropping with physics puzzles, and is totally addictive.
The story is just okay, but I only require a story in adventure type games, so, meh. The artwork is true eye-candy. The music is very pleasant and fitting to the scenery. The mermaid isn't cloying and whiny - like some of the fantasy "assistants" in this sort of games.
This adds some challenge to the Jar of Marbles format, in that you must also consider physics challenges, in addition to mere gravity. It's not frustratingly difficult as far as I've gotten, but it gets harder as you go, of course.
There are also mini games that really could have used a little explanation. You just sort of have to learn how to play, and what the goal is, on the fly. But that's a small ding in an otherwise superb puzzle game!
If you like Jar, you will LOVE this one!

Fun and Stress-Free
This game can be very Addicting! You can take the time to play and not feel pressured with how quickly you are getting through the levels. The bonus rounds are fun and give a little twist to the game so it doesn?t feel repetitive.

Not your normal ball popper game!
This game is a marble dropper game instead. It's still a game where you have to get 3 of the same color, but some marbles have items in them. There are different configurations on different levels and some are hard to figure out. You might have to bounce the ball off of something else. Anyway, I love this game and have played through it 3 times (I'm on the middle of my 4th!). Try it out. I bet you end up buying it! I need to find more games like this one!

MARBLE DROPPING MATCH 3
This is different, and amazingly enjoyable! Basically you are given a colored marble at the top (of which you can right click to change to the next one only) and you drop it onto the desired spot by moving right or left, onto the pile of marbles on the bottom. As they touch each other they tend to bounce and knock each other around and if you are lucky three or more of the same color will collide together and disappear. There are more and more obstacles as you progress but once you clear all the marbles with treasures inside you beat that level. Good music in the background and nice relaxing gameplay make this a must play kind of game. Enjoy!

I love this game, it's challenging the more you play. The music is nice. You have to pay attention to how/where you drop the ball. It is a lot of fun. I bought it 30 minutes into playing the demo! It's wonderful to see a game that is not hidden object!

This is the most relaxing, ejoyable game. The music is never boring, it has just the right amount of ambience. The sound effects are soothing and not jarring. I keep going back to this game as it is visually captivating.

Looks Easy But It Ain't, lolol
This game requires strategy, just like when playing with alleys or an adult game of pool.
Some of the sets are real hard and you need to get 3 stars in ALL the games or you can't open the bonus game.
The graphics are beautiful rich colours and the game selections move very quickly.
My only frustration with this game is having to get 3 stars in all the games to open the bonus game. Normally I would not complain bcos it adds to the challenge, but when you have one game that is near impossible to complete bcos of the way it's set up, it does leave you frustrated.
I think the developers of this game should re-think
Episode 4, Level 8 bcos the marbles don't touch each other when all 3 are lined up. The ledges should have a slight backward tilt to them. I hope they address this issue or very few people will get to the bonus game. :(
If your not to concerned about the bonus game, then yes, this is a game worth having. IMHO.

The is an excellent game
The graphics are well drawn, the music sits neatly into the background and it?s a soothing game to end my day. Sometimes my commute will be three hours, just a 10 or 15 minute session with this game sets things right.
I am looking for more like this, any suggestions?
This sweet game fills the bill.

Just one level I couldn't complete within the timeframe.
It may be impossible.
It may have been someone else has figured out how.
Anyways, this Match 3 is more challenging than normal due to the pearls moving. It's not just matching, it's finesse that requires the power-ups.
I've never played one like this before.
The ending reflects you as the hero/heroine warding off the bad. What is it?
You'll have to finish it to find out.
