Match 3 Japanese Themed Game With Exciting Features! This Match 3 Game has an option to please just about everyone! You can choose Relaxed or Challenge modes, as you rebuild and protect villages destroyed by Civil War. Satsu is a Geisha, a guardian of art, music and Japanese culture, she is joined by Miyamdo a Samurai Warrior dedicated to preserve and protect the villages and their people. You can choose from three styles, the classic match 3 where you swap tiles to match 3 or more identical tiles, clicking on a group of matching tiles or clicking and dragging a chain of identical tiles. At the start of each level you are given a task of making a certain number of matches for each item such as 15 bamboo matches and 15 sushi matches, and you may have to break a certain amount of crates and golden tiles as well. You get a limited amount of moves as indicated to finish each level, and you will collect extra moves which can be used after you deplete the given moves or pay for extra moves with the coins you collect, or you can restart the level. You receive 50 golden coins for each golden tile you destroy by making a match over the golden tiles. These coins are used between levels to rebuild the village with sawmills, wells, buildings for worship and housing. There are two unique features, one is the fact that you are able to rotate the entire board in either direction as often as you want to avoid empty tiles and make strategic moves, and there is a Shuffle feature that allows you to shuffle all the tiles on the board. If you make a match of 5 or more tiles a bomb will appear on the board which can be used by double clicking anytime. Some tiles are blocked with crates, wood, ice cubes, rocks and metal, you must make one or more matches next to these blocks to expose the golden tile within. You will earn bonuses as you progress, the Katana can destroy a single tile, a Shuriken destroys 5 random tiles, a Kungi destroys a row of tiles and Dragon's Breath destroys a row and column of tiles. The tiles to match are Japanese themed with bamboo, lanterns, sushi, logs and of course the bonus tiles with shurikens, katanas etc. I really liked this match 3 you should give it a try, enjoy!

Superb Match 3 In All Respects! There have been quite a few Match 3 games appearing of late, but this one blitzes them all! We have here a game which excels in all respects: Excellent game play, superb graphics, colourful and distinctive tiles, pleasant ambient music, two modes of fact I could not find anything to fault this game at all. The two modes are 'Challenge' and 'Relaxed'. The Challenge mode is the real 'meat' in this game and will give any seasoned player a 'run for their money'. In this mode, rather than a timer, you have only a limited number of moves to complete the required tasks.The Relaxed mode has no limit on moves, so would suit folk who just like to enjoy the game without pressure. The story is fairly typical in that you earn gold as you play, and you have to construct a village from resources etc. etc. There are power ups which become available as you play, but to make them available again after use, take quite a time to recharge. Shuffle is available, but again is slow to recharge. What makes this game more distinctive and interesting however, is that there is an option to swivel the board any time you like, making more moves available. There are 3 types of match mode as well: Swap/Group/Chain. I do not hesitate to recommend this Match 3 to anyone who likes the genre, it was a real pleasure to play. April 15, 2014
Love match 3 building games Very good game. Love that you can turn the board to make more moves. 3 different game types and you can play in relax mode too. That is always a plus for someone my age who just wants to relax and not worry about number of moves or time. The only thing that would have made this better it to be able to pick the types of buildings. Always nice to be have a choice. April 15, 2014
Outstanding Oriental Themed Match-3 Since I love oriental themed games, I'm having a really good time with this one! Lovely graphics and relaxed oriental music. In the Challenge Mode you have limited moves what gives a extra challenge to the game. But you can play in the Relaxed mode too. This is a game that gets more difficult at just the right rate. And you can rotate the board making best strategy to your game. It's definitely a win!!! April 15, 2014
Very Entertaining Match 3 Game! I initially played this game expecting to be bored! Quite the contrary; it is most entertaining, and the challenge level is most unique! I highly recommend it! April 15, 2014

Geishas Once I started playing this wonderful M3 I could not stop! The music and sound affects are very soothing. There are game levels for all players and you can pick from 3 modes of (chain, pop and swap)play.The graphics are very clear and so are your play is smooth.I will have to get this game for my collection.

Unique Something different - Loved this game - don't get confused at the beginning, it is not your ordinary M3. I found it very amusing and challenging without being too difficult. Give this one a try! May 19, 2014
