Heroes from the Past: Joan of Arc
Great game. Played straight through. Level 100 is tough.
The music is awesome.

Good Match 3 Game
As far as match 3 games go this is pretty standard fare but I did like it. You use the money you make during the levels to buy buildings to repopulate and support the town. Each building gives you a new power in the beginning and then later on you just get 2 coins for a flower, sword, gem etc and that helps you accrue more money to finish the town as the items get more expensive as you go. Usually in most of these games I finish the town wayyyy before I am done with the game however with this game I finished the town when I was on level 91 and there are 100 levels so I really felt like the game was rather long.
There are chains, ice, crates and rocks to break through each with great sound effects. For me, half of the fun of Match 3 games are the noises it makes when things burst and this game had lots of great sound effects. The music was not obtrusive and most of the time I forgot it was even on. There are 100 levels and there are achievements which is a nice touch. I suggest trying to get the level under 1 minute during the first couple levels because it will become impossible by the middle and so obviously I never got that one!
My only complaint about this game was that you can play in 3 different modes: the original swapping, the chain and the pop blocks mode. I found that the original swapping mode is the only one I could do multiple levels on timed and actually be able to make it without starting over. The chain and pop modes are extremely hard which is great if you want a challenge but one of the achievements is playing at least one round in each type and it took me a LONG time to do that. Usually I am pretty good at chain and especially at pop but this game gave nooo leniency at all for mistakes or slowness.
The great thing about this game though is the timer. IF you are about to lose a level, you can pause and go to options and change it to relaxed mode so you don't have to do the same one over again. I only realized this close to the end and there was only one level, 95 I believe that I just could not do and had to use the relaxed version but overall this game is great as its lengthy, intense but fun and can be relaxing put in the right mode. I definitely recommend this game and I am sure I will replay it someday!

Joan of Arc?
An entertaining, beautiful, game to relax. What has it to do with Joan of Arc but I do not reveals itself. A little more history would have liked better.

Overall great fun
I enjoyed this game, liked that I could pick relaxed or timed mode,also the fact that you can pick swap,pop or chain for the matching, on each puzzle. I have never found that before. The music is relaxing, so relaxing I forgot that I had picked timed mode and had to redo puzzles.
I'm going to buy this one!

This game is great -- different from most -- you have choice of relaxed or timed. The objects you gather or eliminate from boards vary. When you get enough gold you help Joan build her town.

Fun and Soothing
Fun Match 3 for some down time or getaway. Help Joan of Arc build a city and protect her people (It helps if you manage to forget what eventually happened to Joan of Arc).
Pro's - fun challenges with different layouts, pleasant sounds (the items falling sounds like old-school typewriter keys and it's comforting), good graphics. Nice flexibility - 3 different ways to make the matches, lots of choices how to solve things.
Con's - They bring out the all "bombs" way too early - so you basically work with the same tool kit for the whole game. Music nice background but repetitive.
Overall, a fun way to kill time and chill out.

As my title says this game is really addictive.
All you want from a 3-Match is included in this game.
The one hour demo was gone in a second!

Not much of a story, but the levels are good. Wish it was longer.
