In Search Of Treasure: Pirate Stories
Nope -- Not for Me!
Based on 4 rounds in the demo on the casual mode of 3. I can't recommend this game.
The beginning cut scene had a story but that was the last I saw mention of any additional story line. There is no voice over so you had to read the cut scene. However, I do believe you can skip it altogether.
Also the music was way too loud and I turned both it and the sound down. I meant to go back and turn off the sound because of the "creaking-boards" sound during game play but decided to just exit the game.
The graphics could have been so much better. The jewels you get to match are nothing to write home about -- boring IMHO.
You have 4 modes of game play -- standard match 3 or more; click on groups of 3 or more; drag your cursor over groups of 3 or more; and slide rows and columns to make matches of 3 or more. I didn't try the slider game play but did the other 3. My favorite mode is clicking on groups of 3 or more. I played one set 3 times and finally changed to dragging 3 or more because I kept running out of matches -- same with the dragging mode. Finally I returned to the standard match 3 or more and then gave up. I don't think the programming was up to pare to accommodate the other types of match 3.
I was disappointed you don't win anything extra for making matches of 4 or more. You do have the opportunity of matching a brightly colored jewel, but the game is rather stingy putting them into game play and it takes several matches to charge the sword which in turn can be used to clear only 1 tile.
You should try the demo yourself. For me this is a no buy. I would have given it a one but don't like to use the word hate.

Why do I feel like this game was dug out of a box that was cast offs? Pun intended. The music is boring and there is no excitement to this game. Come on developers- give us a beautiful NEW match 3!

After 18 mins. of play that was enough for me. I have nothing positive to say about any aspect of this game.

Pretty boring game
I usually like most match 3 games but this one just didn't cut it. The graphics were boring, the game itself tedious - it just seemed to go on and on in each level. Deleted it after 20 minutes trial.
