Rebuild the European Union
A Very Unusual Match 3
Admittedly it took me several levels to get into this game, I simply wasn't thrilled. Once I began to understand the concept it started to get addicting. The hardest thing for me to overcome was a feature called "swappers" which randomly switched tiles from left to right as indicated by a horizontal arrow. The goal being to make matches of 3 or more tiles until all of the board is beige colored as well as making a specific amount of matches for each resource. The swapping feature actually made the game harder when smaller spaces had to be exchanged by the swapper in order to get the correct tile into the space and if you didn't react quickly enough the tile would go back out! There are also circle rotation buttons and a reshuffle clover. If you make a match of 5 or larger you earn dynamite which can be activated by double clicking. You can buy power ups with the euros you earn. I really enjoyed the mini game of rebuilding which was actually a very blurry puzzle of a building and the puzzle pieces were square blocks and as you place the pieces, the lines disappear as the picture comes together. Don't give up on this game to quickly, enjoy!

My Head Is Spinning...
...but I am loving it anyway! This is not a relaxing, click-click M3 game. It begins like most of them, we have to match three tiles, so I played on semi-timed. Within a few games I changed to untimed and that is still difficult because there are little boxes of several tiles with arrows and it is difficult to match them. My strategy is now to match those little boxes first because they have to be watched. There is so much going on including turning the blue tiles to beige and collecting a certain amount of each resource but the board becomes incredibly busy, keeping not only my eyes but also my head spinning. Yet I bought it and like it even though the music is repetitious and the graphics aren't changing. If you are looking for a more exciting M3 game, please try this one but be sure to play to the end of the trial.

Intriguing and unusual Match 3 game!
This game has a different storyline from most and has some unique elements added to the match 3s. I played relaxed mode so there was no pressure and found that the new elements didn't pose any problems. From reading all the reviews before I downloaded the game I got the impression that players either really loved or really disliked the game. I really enjoyed it and will put it on my keepers list.

How Fun Is This?!
I just purchased this game and was surprised just now to find I have been playing it for almost 3 hours. It has a number of challenges, levels, and puzzles. It is intriquing because I have never played a match three quite like this. I don't like the really simple games but neither is this so difficult that one cannot finish it. The visual quality is quite good, as well. The only slight problem may be the music. It is very repetitive but give the game a try and it may not be bothersome because the game is just that good. Have fun!

It's a really enjoyable game.
It's a really enjoyable game. I especially like these "swappers", they really make a difference in the gameplay. I can recommend this one to anyone who likes challenges.

Loved this game
At first it was kind of easy but then it became more and more difficult and I liked that a lot. Played it timed but muted it because couldn't stand the music and the clacking of the sliding tiles. I was addicted and played till 4 in the morning. I also LOVED the blurry puzzle to complete. Very different. This is a game that I will play again

Fun and Different Match 3
Based on the Demo
This match 3 had twists and turns through the game. There were no cutesy animals or sweet hum drum music. There was a man on a mission: to rebuild the world, one log and one brick at a time. The background music was great, very theatric and I enjoyed listening to it. The background noise of things blowing up added to attraction of the game for me.
I really enjoyed it.

If you want an easy Match 3 Game - This is not for you!
At first I thought. This is an easy game. How wrong can you be? I think its the 2nd level of the first part of the game that things get tricky with arrows both horizontal and vertical moving the tiles around. There are three levels and I opted for the middle level which was timed but allowed replays until the required score has been obtained.
After quite a few attempts I cleared the first level and the game moved into jigsaw mode. The background depicts what it is you have to create using numerous pieces. but the background is very blurred and although it gives you a clue, there was nothing (that I could see) that informed you that you had placed your piece in the correct position.
That's as far as I have got so far, but I did buy the game.
Some gamers think the graphics are poor, I disagree. They are not the best but they are not poor.
Music, well I never have been a fan because it is so repetative.
For me the level of challenge is excellent. Anyone thinking this game is easy must be a Match 3 Wizard!!!! and Yes, based on all the other games I have purchased I do class myself as "Expert" but not in this particular game. ENJOY!!

M3 fun with a challenge
This is a lot of fun and not just a simple point and click Match 3. The pieces are constantly moving on the board so you have to be fast to make the matches. There are also picture puzzles as the end of each level. I found it to be fun with just a little challenge.

Better Than I Expected!
I don't usually like Match 3 games, but I loved this one! Took me a while to grasp what I was supposed to be doing as I clicked off the instructions before I read them and could not find how to get them back again. I played on Timed mode and I didn't manage to complete the first level! Really addictive little game. This one's going on my To Buy list!
