Most Bang For Your Buck Award!
You get 9 different types of play, <called training areas> each having 25 levels. At every 5th level, there is a mini game.
You don't have to complete one entire training area before you start a new one, so you can bounce around and play what you are in the mood to play.
When you complete one entire training area, there is a question that you answer and your answer determines in what category you get points.
(Mind, Nature, or Craft)
You use these 'points' to upgrade the different training areas.
The different training areas are...
The Dark Lake...
This is a fishing game where you collect a certain number of a specific fish and you can collect the treasures too.
This is a collapse matching game where you try to create large groups of the same color blocks.
This is like Mario Kart.
This is solitaire.
This is like Tetris. You put different shaped pieces in carts of different dimensions. The same colors combine to make larger 'gems' and give you higher points.
A Mahjong game
This is a Match 3 game.
This is a 'shooting' game where you try to collect points by shooting at fireworks type of targets. the more individual targets in your sights at one time the higher your score.
This is a marble popping game.
This game also allows you to go back and play any or all the levels of a particular training area.
Pixie Blocks is my favorite, so I am always in that training area, but it's nice to know that if I get bored with that style of play that there are 8 other types I can choose from.
It is true that some of the games have timers...
however, I found the timers to be long enough (except in the harder, more challenging levels, as it should be.)
I HIGHLY recommend this game to everyone. It really does have something for most everyone.
If you like games with lots of variety...
THIS IS YOUR GAME!

This game is super!
I do not know why more reviews are not here. The demo flew by so fast I had to buy it right away. Tons of levels and TONS of fun. I have only played on 2 levels--one where you have to try to get huge blocks of like colors (sort of like bejeweled, but you have to plan ahead for big blocks or u do not progress) to trying to catch different types of fish in a water environment full of rocks, and treasure and poisonous fish! And this was just two of the types of puzzles! It seems that you have to master 5 levels, each a bit harder, before being allowed to go to a different puzzle, OR you can buy the harder levels of the one you are on with the "upgrade" option, paid for by the gems you got or fish you caught, and who knows what awaits me! This is quite simply TONS of fun, addicting as cigarettes, and I am rating it a 5. The things I did not like were mostly all mechanical-- you could not get back to the main menu really easy while in a level and you would lose all progress in it if you did quit. It was also a bit hard to tell in the beginning how u would buy more levels and go on in one, but if you looked, you found out how. Other than this slightly difficult use in the beginning, I still have to rate this a 5. The controls were fast, the cartoon graphics were great, the darn game is so much fun, and I have barely cracked the surface of it! I will bet if you download it you will buy it! I am a fan of hidden object games and rarely purchase an arcade style one, but I can see that this will offer hours of entertainment for ALL ages.

For Those Who Like A Challenge
This one is loads of fun. It has two options of play. One is distroy clusters colored blocks, with a minimum number of trys. The second is spear fishing. Along the line of the GOLD RUSH games. Levels become quickly more challengeing and it's great for hand eye coordination. I only got to a medium level in the hour trial. And was having to replay some. Think I'm gonna have to buy this one.
