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.

BUILD A GHOST TOWN
This is a Match 3 game with a few twists. Playing the game and some additional puzzles earns you coins with which you buy buildings and other items to create a town for ghosts to live in, 5 ghosts to be exact. I played the easy, non-timed mode.
The Match 3 games are varied and challenging, with various power-ups, frozen tiles, tiles hidden behind fog, coins hidden behind vines, and several types of bombs and rockets. There are also achievements to be earned, 3 of which are for finishing a Match 3 game quickly. I was only able to win one of those achievements based on speed.
The puzzles consisted of a hidden object type where you need to find 15 of the same object or a mahjong type puzzle. The hidden object puzzles were extremely hard as the items were faded and blended into the background. Often only a very small tip of the item actually showed. I had to use several hints or in a couple of cases I got tired of straining my eyes and just skipped them. The mahjong puzzles were much easier.
I haven't played a lot of Match 3 games, so can't really say how this one compares to other similar games but I found it enjoyable.

Good Starter Match 3
This is a great game for youngsters or folks just learning Match 3/building games. The design is sweet, fun and simple. A good relaxation game.
Pros: Graphics and colors are excellent, ghosts are fun, puzzles are all easy (mah-jong-ish puzzle and hidden object), music is relaxing, power ups are helpful, nothing takes too long. Good length. By the time you're about done - so is the game.
Cons: the games get repetitive after awhile, as do the ghosts. There are 5 ghosts but they are all like each other so nothing creative. powerups happen on the board wherever they happen, you can't place them. The story is silly - most of the things in the "ghost town" are things that ghosts don't need - but its all in good fun.
Recommend for youngsters or newbies.

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.

Most levels of the match 3 were easy, although there were some that I had to replay several times. It seems that if you had to replay, each subsequent try became easier. Storyline and characters were cute. Some of the items in the HOS were really hidden just for the purpose of making it really hard to find, example - just the tip of the candle showing. Also, the game itself is relatively short. Nevertheless, a fun game to play just for mindless relaxation
