Good Long Game
This game has 201 levels, a variety of puzzles and really is a good game, gathering money to improve the village. Level 201 is ALL puzzles and you cannot skip them to proceed to the very last game. It took me 2 hours to get them all, but I DID IT! It has been worth every penny (or in my case a credit) that I spent.

I love games that are fun, have some variety, have cute graphics and that aren't toooo difficult. This game is one of those. I have to think but not so much that I can't figure it out. The only thing is that I thought there were lots of bonuses but I've only found one but maybe I haven't played it long enough yet.

Wow! And I Dont Even LIKE M3 Games!
I am very surprised here. I am not very fond of 99% of the match 3 games out there -over time, I have found 3 or 4 that have been excellent and now, too, this one. I like all of the side aspects such as building & improving the village and anything else aside from the matching, which is just fine also.
Great fun & for once - and I do mean once - I am not just not muting the music, but I have it turned up high. Very beautiful graphics.
At 1st I considered buying it with 40 minutes remaining in the free 1 hour trial but I said I had better give it some more time in case anything comes up. Played for 50 minutes total & bought. Good game.

Beautiful play, beautiful graphics
Seems to me M3 games are improving ... this one has super smooth movements at high speeds, very comfy and no jerking halting that some games suffer when you are really zipping. Made for speed! Graphics are a delight here, and while sounds often annoy me such that I opt them off, here they are just right, breaking glass is perfect and not jarring, earth digging is a 'rewarding' sound, somehow, in its application. You'll have to play to see what I mean by that. Anyway, no story line to speak of and for once I would not mind having one here, and I would also appreciate more involvement in choices of 'furnishings'. I'm only at level 65 so may have more to say later. Recommend this for new and competent M3 players alike, perhaps for varied reasons. Trite phrase "eye candy" but this one sure has it!

So much fun!
I love Match3 games and was thrilled to find this one on the "tomorrow's game today" stage. I bought it without trying. It is worth the gamble. I hated to close it down and go to bed last night. It is beautifully crafted and entertaining. The occasional hidden object challenges are lovely, too.

clearly the best match 3 of the moment.

Variation is Great!
I really liked this match three for the challenge (200 levels) and that some challenges were hidden object - only about 4 or 5 scenes total - and the tetris like eliminating the stack. Different from the normal match three and I give it a big thumbs up!

Fun game, nice graphics and lots of levels. It is quite challenging and can be played also on a relaxed mode. I loved all the features to upgrade the village.

Good Match 3 with Additional Challenges
A nice Match 3 combo that includes challenges, as others have mentioned, making it a bit different to the norm, in an enjoyable way.
Graphics, sound effects, ambient music and gameplay are all top notch, so virtually nothing to complain about. However, as fellow-reviewer pennom36 mentioned, there is the small niggle of spelling mistakes e.g. sextan instead of sextant.
I found the challenge level quite easy, even in timed mode, but with 200 levels, I'm sure it will increase as you progress.
Overall though, I would have to say this is one of the better Match 3 games, and one which would appease the majority of players.
