Entertaining game with nice graphics. The story is interesting. It's fun when playing.

My fave M3 series of games...
Was so pleased to see this pop up for the Mac yesterday. Also good to see a relaxed option included this time.
I love the music, the choices of the way you play the M3 boards and the difficulty as you get further in.
A mix of M3 and FROG scenes all go to make this a very enjoyable gaming experience. It has much replay value too, as you can choose three different ways to play it, and play against the timer after you've finished the game in relaxed mode (or vice versa).
Been quite a while since a decent M3 came out, and if you like this genre you'll like this game.

My 1st game
I like this game, but got stuck and frustrated. did not know about community help board. I keep trying and quit the 3 times. Sense of accomplishment to finish the game on my own. Graphics are good, ok story line, music needs to be turn off. For the most part I did untime play, so I could relax and have fun. I did buy Hellas 2 & 3 after finishing this one, because I like this one. Have finish playing Hellas 3, have palace.

gets kind of boring when there is no challange, that is no lives to lose. If you don't finish a level in time, big deal just replay it. I really enjoyed the atlantis games that were like this, you could lose much more fun, this one, not so much

Could have been a bit better
Beware the code monkeys!" They either were not following directions, "don't make the game unwinnable", or nobody bothered to make sure it wasn't. After about round 60 or so I ended up waiting for the amulet to recharge again and again and again just to watch it blow up all of the pieces I didn't need to be blown up. The game then repopulates the blank areas with other pieces that impede or completely stop any forward movement in the game. After playing a round six or seven times I get too frustrated and close the game.

I don't mind some match 3 games, but am not a huge fan of mostly match 3. However, I was in the mood for something different, so tried it out. This one was kind of fun.
The graphics were a bit fuzzy, game play was good, music got annoying very quickly. HOG areas are very dark and items difficult to see. Hint system was helpful and filled at mid level in speed. Not a lot of instruction, but easy to figure out.
This is a very simple game for beginners, or people who just want to relax and not have to think about anything else. Not challenging, but I will put it in my puddle for a day when I need a no brainer.
As always, try it for yourself and see what you think. We all have different tastes in games and you may find it quite enjoyable. Thanks for the reviews.

While I love hogs & match 3 games, this one is a bit simplistic. When finding pieces to complete treasures, all I really had to do was look for shapes/colors that were out of place, until the last 2 or 3 pieces. Only at that point did I actually have to look at the treasure to see what was missing & continue to search. Not very challenging unless you are a beginner, then it appears to be a great little game. Doubtful that I will purchase it. I like games that are considerably more challenging. Give it a try and you may LOVE it.

ok so far
Not bad but not as good as hoped. It plays well but there are better games. No new idea, no surprise. A good game no more, no less.

Good for a Match 3
I generally find Match 3 games boring, but this was okay.
