Magic Heroes: Save Our Park
Save this cute little park!
Magic Heroes is very well made match-3 game. It's very smooth with power ups, explosions, 3 matching modes (you can change them during game play). It has relaxed and timed modes.
To save the park you need to earn money. It let's you pay for various upgrades to the park. You can build coffee shop or play ground for kids. The park has very nice art and when you improve it more and more people walks around.
I bought the game and recommend it to everyone.

I Love Options
This is an awesome match-3 game, you have many options. You can choose timed or untimed, and you can choose what kind of matching mode you want to play, swap, trace, or click the bundle. One of the really nice options is you can switch modes mid hand, there are limits, but I did not find them. The graphic are beautiful, and of course the power-ups are spectacular. The story is cute, you must earn money to fix up grandmas park and house before the city tears it down. My hour went way too fast, and I would recommend it for the whole family.

I liked this game as it is not hard but fun. It is nice to watch the city grow. Very pretty.

City vs Granny
This is a nice match 3 game with colorful tiles which can be played in timed or untimed modes, you can also choose between swap matches, chain matches and group matches, with the goal of earning 3 gold stars. There are coins to collect as well as special bonuses to collect by clicking on those tiles. There are also upgrade bonuses as you progress such as a witches broom to clear a single tile. You choose which character to portrait which are the grandchildren of the witch who needs to clean up a dilapidated park where she lives before the city decides to bulldoze the park. There are 148 levels which should make this a lengthy game, enjoy!

Another Fine Match 3!
The scene is a rundown town park which is presided over by granny the witch. You are charged with having to assist her to bring it back to its former glory. She apparently also has some tricks up her sleeve.
Coins are earned during gameplay, and are then spent on various upgrades to the park. Graphics between the levels are cartoon-like, but bright and pleasing. There is some written dialogue after every few levels, but this detracts little from the pace of the game.
The game boards themselves are excellent, with colourful and distinctive designs which are clear and easy on the eye.
Matches can be made whilst tiles are falling. All the usual power ups, some becoming available right from the outset, so you quickly get into the game, and thankfully, there is virtually no tutorial.
There are choices in the way you can remove tiles, but in the trial hour, I was restricted to the normal 'swap' mode. Others presumably become available as game progresses.
Ambient music is somewhat non-descriptive, but pleasant and fits the game ok.
Six locations and 147 levels will keep you playing for a considerable time. A good addition to the Match 3 genre which I recommend.

Good game but misleading description
The actual match-3 boards are fun, but fairly standard. You complete boards and then can clean up the park and improve it. However, two things annoyed me: First, the so-called areas to explore are nothing more than backgrounds behind the match-3 areas. There really is nothing to explore about them. Second, The last "area" (the city) requires you to complete 40 levels of match-3 and then nothing happens! The park is complete before "the city" area. I was very disappointed.

An interesting M3 where some of the play is NOT to win
Save Our Park is an interesting twist on the usual M3 because of the scoring. There is no help or instruction page to tell you how things are, so you have to figure out for yourself how scoring goes and what bomb does what. I wasted a number of levels of the first group with one star and two stars before figuring out that there is a minimum number of tiles to remove. You win when all of the colored background squares are gone -- OK I understand that, but until you have the minimum number of tiles removed you might ?win? with only 1 or 2 stars. I play in untimed mode, so this may be different for me. I actually have to play not to win for several minutes each board until the third star is shown. Then, and only then, can I actually try to win, again. I cannot remember any other game where trying NOT to win was part of the game. But it actually is fun in an odd sort of way. A weird sort of way.
I will take exception to the lack of help and to the horrible lack of navigation. I was shocked when I hit the second group of boards and suddenly I was at level one again. I kept on playing and was still improving the park, so I guess that was correct. Now I am at level 11 in the fourth group of boards and I think overall I am at about the 60th level. It is not possible to tell, since there is no way to navigate around.
Overall the game is rather easy and rather straightforward except for the necessity to play part of each board NOT to win. That still amazes me

This is a nice relaxing game for the whole family. You have to help fix the park up . you get tokens for completing levels to purchase up grades to the park. This is a really good game to do when you just want to relax and play. This is a keeper BIG FISH

Confusion About Stars
This is a great 3-match game with timed, untimed, swap, group, chain. You get bombs if you match five and six powerups as the game progresses. However, you must use the powerups in each level or they are lost. I played in the untimed mode and if I was too fast -- I only got one, or two stars. You can go back and replay the level slowly if you want all three, but I never found out what the significance of the stars. At first I thought it was to unlock the additional sites but that didn't seem the case. The graphics are great and you get to clean up the park for Grandma.

This is a fun game. You definitely get your money's worth. I played half in swap mode and the rest in chain mode.
The games pieces varied according to the graphics shown on the screen ; for example Chinatown has Oriental music and Asian type game pieces.
