What a SURPRISE..really fell in love with this M3 :-)
This is such a CUTE M3 game, and the graphics are SUPERB, along with FUN and VERY entertaining game play!
To be quit honest, I wasn't expecting to like, this gem as much as I did, so that was a great surprise, especially after I purchased it, well it just got better and better.
I caught myself LOL and smiling, more than once, and after having VERY painful oral surgery, this game was just what the doctor ordered, THANKS developers this game is very up-lifting and such a joy to play.
From the most gorgous town, you get to build, using the coins you earn, which has both, daytime and night time scenery, really packs a punch, so detailed and beautiful to look at.
To the cute ghost, each having their own personality's and cute outfits, they ask for your help in solving puzzles, inbetween game boards of M3, were you also earn coins.
Also you get H0 scenes were you collect a certain number of items, like stars, candles etc.
The M3 boards themselves are so pretty, LOVE the peices these developers used, great quality throughout this gem.
And the power-ups are just as AWESOME, and easy on the eye's, and you will need them, to clear all kinds of obstacles.
You have coins you need to get to, some will also have leaves, that you first need to make matches, to remove the leaves, than make more matches to get the coins, don't worry, you will have rockets, bombs etc, I never had any issues with no moves, like others have mentioned, if you make matches of 6-8 peices, you get a power-up's that will clear the way, if used right.
Also, there are coins that are on fire, for these you need to make matches with water drops, to cool them, than you can remove the coins with any game peices that match.
I just found this so entertaining and addictive, once I started, that was all she wrote, played until I built the entire town, and yes you can continue playing even after the town is built, and still earn coins.
It's just pure FUN and IMHO a great M3, that will keep you busy for hours..LOVE IT!!!!

Laruaville is a plot of land where the ghosts in the story want to build a town for ghosts and it is your job to make their dream come true.
It is a combination of Match 3 and mini games and the object is to gather the coins in the Match 3 to purchase the items the ghosts would like in their town. You have a number of power ups that the wizard creates for you to use. There is no voice over and the music stops and starts in loops which can be a little annoying(turned sound way down at the beginning). Visually it is cartoonish but cute.
It was fun to play but not sure if it could become boring after the hour trial, but it does have the potential to. Mini games are interspersed between the match 3, ho and mahjong tiles. It is one of those games that you need to try to find out if you like it or if it will drive you bored silly.

Pretty and original Match 3
I consider myself fairly expert at many Match 3 games, so it's a treat to find one with new strategies such as needing to raise a rocket by making matches above it rather than the usual lowering objects by matching below them.
Nice fantasy artwork and occasional HO and Mahjong puzzles add up to a really good game!

It was ok..
Cute little M3/HO game.. but the WOW factor was lacking.. I found the tiles were similar and a little difficult at first...to match up.. however after playing a but you kinda get use to the shapes...
Would I recommend? There is no EHH to choose so I said yeah... I love M3 games and wish there were more and less HO.. but this one i'm going to pass on.

CUTE AND FUN FOR KIDS
This is a cute, fun and easy game for kids. I liked it to begin with but soon became bored. There is no challenge for an experienced gamer. Colorful and bright. The ghosts will amuse kids. You earn coins by playing the match 3 and finding a number of hidden objects. You then use them to build your town. I would recommend if you have young children but not for yourself if you are a heavy gamer.

Sugar and Spice Sweet
It is a sweet game and fun. Relaxing but really not for me. Don't pass it up, it's worth playing for a little while......

Great for kids...the only reason I recommend it
This review is based on the trial period so may get better the longer one plays. The game offers two modes...timed and relaxed which is great. The game was not very challenging and the pieces looked a lot alike. However, I do recommend the game for children. The characters are cute and childlike and need your help for various reasons.

it's an ok game not fast but the kids can enjoy it also and the story line is ok the building is slow but it's fun for the whole family

Cute simple match 3 (very simple) - Based on short trial
The basic premise is that ghosts need a home too. Help build a town for some friendly ghosts. Didn't play long but the game play was pretty straight forward. No VO but the graphics were bright and the music was calming. To help build the town you need coins which are gained by playing the match 3. The coins are in random rows and by matching right next to them it gives you the coin. The coins can not be swapped with any other matching piece. There are power-ups you can get eventually but I didn't play long enough to see how they were used. Overall a decently cute game but nothing very challenging. It would be fine for some straight forward match 3 with nothing else really added to it for stimulation. Something along the same lines is "Lost In Night" which is much much better.

Just an OK game for me
Loved the gorgeous graphics and the music was good and not intrusive, however I just do not like having to make matches next to the coins in order to collect them. I just played part of the trial and although completed some of the levels, can definitely see how this will get rather challenging, not to mention probably frustrating. Will have to pass on this one even though I am a big M3 fan, but will recommend it for others who don't mind this type of M3 game.
