The Snow Fable
THIS GAME HAS GORGEOUS GRAPHICS AND BEAUTIFUL MUSIC. MY ONLY COMPLAINT IS NOT ENOUGH LEVELS AND NOT VERY CHALLENGING. ON THE RELAXED MODE IT NEVER WENT ANYWHERE AND GOT BORING. ON THE CHALLENGING MODE IT STILL WAS NOT CHALLENGING AND I KNOCKED THE LEVELS OUT QUICKLY. THE BEST THING WAS HOW BEAUTIFUL THE GRAPHICS WERE. I WISH IT HAD A LOT MORE LEVELS ON THE CHALLENGE MODE AND THAT THE RELAXED MODE WOULD CHANGE LEVELS INSTEAD F JUST GOING ON AND ON AND NOT ANYTHING HAPPENING.

Glad to see Match-3 isn't dead...
I always love finding a good match-3. You can sit back and relax while you play, enjoying the art and music, something you can't do as much with many of the hidden object and adventure games out there.
The Snow intrigued me with its title, and I was glad I checked it out. Seven different game modes seemed like it would be enough to keep me playing for a long time, but sadly the game was a little short...thus, no 5-star rating.
But, since good match-3 games are hard to find, this was still worth it and quite a lot of fun.

Nice visuals, but poor storyline and boring gameplay.
My biggest issue with this game was the lack of interesting gameplay development. Every level was a re-hash of the exact same thing, with very few differences. It's "break these blocks" or "drop these items" or unlock these gems", which are the same tired mechanics you see in every match three game. There's only one power-up (not including the usual 4+ match bombs), and for some reason the developers felt they needed to remind you what to do at the start of every new level, even if you'd played that mechanic before.
The storyline wasn't bad, but it was weak and unoriginal. The voice acting was passable, but I probably would have preferred to read text-only dialogue that I could click through at my leisure, since the cut-scenes take far too long.
Overall, I wouldn't pay for this game. If you're really into match-three games and don't mind repetitive gameplay for little reward, then you might get a kick from the quaint art, but if you're easily bored, give this one a miss.

Like another reviewer I was very disappointed on the length of the adventure mode - I was finished in about 1 1/2 hours. The challenge mode is ok with a couple of creative puzzles but not at all why I would purchase a game. Wish I had my punch card back.

the music and the cut scenes are excellent, the story in adventure mode is interesting. each level has a different m3 goal and there are cut scenes between levels to place earned objects and advance the story line. i enjoyed the trial and may pick this game up with a game credit. the level tasks were not that challenging but each level became more difficult. no level task was repeated during my trial so it may continue to become harder as you progress in the game.

Loved the trial so much I bought it! Then finished the "story" a short (and I mean SHORT!) time later! Bummed! You can then play the "challenges" to unlock more free play levels, but that is NOT what I was looking for! Extremely disappointed!

Cute Story Line -- But
Sorry folks, I found this 3-Match to be boring. The story was nice and I loved the little flame, but cannot really recommend this.

Fun at first but got frustrating
I liked this game up to the freezing part at the end of the adventure section. This was just too tedious to finish so that I just deleted the whole game. The music was very repetitive so that I just turned that off. The graphics are very pretty and the story was cute but not enough to keep interest. I am not a big fan of match 3 games though so if you like those this is a good twist on that. I would recommend this game only to match 3 lovers.

Not my cup of tea
I made it through the trial; hoping that I would find something to make me want to buy this game but it never happened. I love most match 3 games. The music was pleasant, the story was ok but the game play became boring too quickly for me. Sorry, but, I can't recommend this game.

I don't understand what is supposed to happen on a lot of the levels. This is a very difficult game......too HARD........
