Tales of the Orient: The Rising Sun 4.1 5 25 25
Nothing Really Special I practice daily meditation and find that it helps to rid my mind and body of unnecessary stress and helps me to focus better during the day. I find that at times a Match 3 game is also a good way to meditate. After everyone has retired, if I am too tired to retreat into a good HOPA game, I will elect to unload my brain and what better way than to zone out with a great Match 3 game. What I do look for in a Match 3 game is simplicity, swap challenge and soothing zen music in the background. I do also enjoy the occasional building or planting or decorating which is why Fishdom series are amongst my favorite. In tales of the Orient: The Rising Sun you have most of these elements, plus option to play timed or relax mode, three types of M3 games, swap, chain or pop challenges, all put together with clear graphics and soothing music in the background. Albeit artwork could have been a bit better as tokens are somewhat small and animations are blurry, but at least I was able to differentiate tiles and tokens. Our storyline is simple, your quest takes you to the Edo period in Japan where your quest is to help Satsu and Miyamoto rebuild and preserve ancient Japan. You have the option to play in Challenge mode with limited moves or Relax mode where there is no pressure. Each level has goals which involve purchasing a group of buildings with coins collected and there are a set of tasks to achieve in order to progress. Once the Task bar is filled, you move toward the next board. If you opt to play the Challenge Mode, there is limited number of moves for every board and if you are unable to clear all the tokens, you can get a power-up bonus that allows for 5 extra moves. Also you can rotate the board with arrows to avoid empty tiles and make the best matches which makes for a more challenging game that requires a bit of strategic thinking on your part. This game is not exactly a game I would choose to zone out with because it does require some concentration on your part. As you progress, the boards do get more challenging and bonus power-ups become very useful. I enjoyed the demo but to be honest, I have played better and I don?t think that hard core players of M3 games will find this game overtly challenging. This really wasn?t a game that I would rush out to buy but nevertheless, I do recommend that if you are a lover of M3 games try the demo and decide for yourself. The music is relaxing, game-play is easy to comprehend and there are no bombs or flashing lights or lasers to distract you. I am a bit on the fence on this and will probably use a credit or buy it at a very good sale price. Nothing really special here! April 15, 2014
Wanted to love it, but........... Although I love M3 games, especially the ones with lots of dazzle, I've discovered that I detest the ones with a limited number of moves. Takes the relaxation out and adds a frustration factor that just won't quit. Dumped before the end of the test drive. April 22, 2014
Tales of the Orient: The Rising Sun Boring. Did not find the game to be fun. Would not buy it. Just not my type of game. I more enjoy the hidden object games that have a bit of a challenge to them April 16, 2014
Not Another 3 Match I know it's Easter vacation but couldn't you just once put an adult game out too!!!! April 15, 2014
Boring This is not my usual type of game, but I thought I'd give it a go, as it looked a bit different. I didn't really like it. I couldn't get off the first level before I got bored! I didn't realise, at first, that in order to get rid of the gold squares, you have to surround them with swaps. But if one swap is missing (ie a symbol next to it) is missing - you CANNOT win. So if you make one "mistake", so the symbol next to it (usually for me, at the top right or left) was gone, you were finished. End of. No way out. I don't know if this was my inexperience (which I suspect was part of it), or if this game is just annoying, because once I realised this, I STILL couldn't finish.....okay, I could have gone into relax mode, but I couldn't be bothered, I could have played the level again (for the 5th time), but I couldn't be bothered. I'm not playing a game where the instructions/game play is so hard I can't get off the first level after 4 tries. I am sure more experienced players will have more luck, but not for me. I just got irritated. April 15, 2014
