Fun & Relaxing M3 Game
I truly loved this game! I've seen some reviewers complain that this might've been for children but I don't agree with that. This is not an M3 that is super, duper hard so if you're looking for something to test your brain, this isn't it. As an advid M3 player, I've been looking for something that wasn't too taxing so I could relax but would still provide me w/ enough of a challenge to keep me interested (i.e., the old school The Enchanted Island#. This did it!
The gameplay is a classic match 3, with barriers and power-ups being added as the levels increased. I didn't really start having issues w/ running out of time until level 60 but I just needed to focus a bit more to get through it. There is no GOLD, SILVER, BRONZE level of expert in terms of time but you do get time bonuses if you have enough on the level and you can earn trophies based on time. You can also keep playing after you've built your city so play is really quite endless. There is even a trophy if you get to level 150!
The graphics are quite beautiful, especially as the city takes shape. The music can be become a bit tedious if you're listening all that much but I zone a bit when playing something like this so it wasn't an issue. The storyline wasn't that prevalent but the real joy is watching your city take shape. I did have a minor gripe with a couple of the EVENT games where we had to capture a whale and mess w/ a dragon #I like both...sue me) but that is a minor quibble.
If you like a relaxing, easygoing M3 that still challenges a bit to keep you interested, this is a great game. 5 out 5 stars.

Wow, what beautiful and very colorful Graphics! Simply brilliant and totally beautiful to look at. An easy and relaxing Game with lots of power-ups. The only down-side is that the Achievements Bar sometimes blocks the actual building of the buildings ... and I like watching them being built because it's so clever the way they do it! I would recommend this Game to anyone to loves Match 3 Games!

Best match 3 ever for me!!!
This game is so much fun! I love a good match 3 and this one is my fave of all time, and I've played a loooong time. I love how it tells me I've " completed *** levels without setting a record", etc- first game that gives you an award for being bad! Ha Ha. The graphics are gorgeous, and the replay level is high. This one I'll be replaying for some time. Thanks for this wonderful game, and hope there is a sequel- tho I wonder how they could ever beat this one!

A fun game for Match-3 lovers
I came to this game late (was probably traveling when it was first offered), but I love it now that I have it. It's not a particularly sophisticated game, but it has all of the basic attributes one would want in a match-3 game: choice between timed and untimed, earned power-ups, and rewards for long matches. The story is creative, and the buildings one can buy are not just of the same old variety (imagine a casino in ancient India!). I happen to agree with the reviewer who likes whales and dragons, but the game does not require that they be killed, only "banished." I can live with that.

Feast the Eyes, if not the Mind
This is a visual masterpiece, relaxing and fun. Not too challenging, but beautiful to play and watch.
Pros: Music, artwork, colors, characters all fun. Bombs and helps are generous and renew quickly. The game "builds" as you play. Creative, fun "events" like pirates and giant octopi make it work.
Cons; Pretty repetitive, even for a match 3. It builds up quickly and is pretty much the same style/pattern over and over as you build things. The helps come early in the game, and while they get stronger don't really change or add.
By the time I finished - I was done with it, but - it was a nice ride.
