Story of Fairy Place
Great basic match 3
Very fun and addictive. Not a lot of power-ups, just 2, but very addictive and fun. You can set your own level of challenge by selecting relax mode if you don't want to limit your number of moves. Many levels, each with a different layout.

Makes me dizzy!
the butterflies are pretty but there's so much motion that this game made me dizzy. Even playing in 2D mode was too much. The round ends before you've cleared all the spaces; not sure what that's about. Navigation is not intuitive. If you really love match 3 and the motion doesn't bother you, you'll probably enjoy the game. Good for older children 7-12

Not so much to offer.
One, you have a playing field of fluttering butterflies. Second, there are colored tiles, butterflies with various flowers on them and spider-web covered butterflies. Drag a colored butterfly to make a GROUP match of the same colors. Easy, done. That's the game.
But, here's the thing to remember while you're making all those pretty butterflies fly away by swapping or dragging to make your group. It's NOT about how many fly away because you used the "marked" butterfly. Even though it's not really mentioned, IT IS all about getting those blue tiles changed.
If you notice while you're playing, that's when you get the most manna. Oh yeah, manna. Forgot about that. On the right side of the game board is a giant (well, size is relevant) pillar that has to get filled with blue manna. On the left side of the game board is a white energy filled pillar. That white one is the fairy's energy level. Fill the blue pillar up before the white pillar empties. Because while you're grouping butterflies, every time you group some, the white level goes down as the blue goes up. Make sense? Didn't think so.
Also, we got the fairy's sob story (told in terrible English) at the beginning of the game about how we need to, have to, must, help her rebuild her home which was destroyed in a storm. Well, nothing looked destroyed to me. Just a plain green area. After the first level is complete (about 6 sub-levels) you see "clouds" - yay. Next, comes a rainbow, but the next level is about 10 sub-levels long. Each level has more and more sub-levels added on to it so that you have to wait an incredible length of time to see that new addition. I played for an hour and got clouds and a rainbow. I really wanted to see where that gazebo was going to go.
In any case, make your pretty butterfly groups but, please, remember, it's all about the tiles.
Not a purchase for me but, have at it. Can't hurt to try the demo. I was glad it was over. Stupid gazebo.
