Deleted this game
The game graphics are so beautiful. From what I saw, which was very little.
The game is timed. If you are not able to finish a level you are just out of luck. There is no way for you to move on the the next level. It is a match three game !!! there is no reason to make the levels of the game so difficult.
I became stuck on level three. Played it for hours and was never able to get past it. Sooo I just deleted the game and wrote this review.

Stops being fun when you can't win
I liked the layout of the game, but when I hit the second level during the trial period, I hit a roadblock. Tried 3 times to get through Level 2-1 and then gave up an Uninstalled.

A match-3 that did not captivate me
This is a group-match game.
*** Right-handed cursor only, *** even if you have a left-handed setup this game will not recognise it and force right-hand mouse.
Could not see any choice for difficulty level, but as your game is saved with the description "normal mode", perhaps there is a choice after finishing to play again in a hard mode?
You may turn off custom cursor and in-game hints.
There is an automatic reshuffle if you run out of moves on a level.
The backdrops are beautiful with slight animations such as rain, rustling branches etc., and it changes/adds objects as you finish levels.
The usual helping bonuses such as bombs, crosses that removes vertical and horizontal lines, tiles that destroys all identical pieces.
Obstacles are also the usual such as chains, monoliths of several layers.
A nice touch that adds to the challenge is the random clicking penalty - if you mis-click several times without making matches then you suffer a time punishment.
There are some puzzle levels in each chapter, where you have a limited number of pieces and your goal is to remove them all. The challenge is, of course, that since you cannot swap the pieces around you are dependent on how they fall from above. Which colour to remove first? Any stray pieces that will be left behind?
It was a beatiful game with nice music.
However, I do not care for group-match M3s - for some reason just finding and clicking on a group of identical colour pieces does not satisfy my sense of *doing* something. There is a skill in seeing pieces that can be dropped down by doing a matching of other pieces below - but I simply do not enjoy it.
Also - the fact that it is right-handed mouse only makes this game not pleasant for me to play, esp. with the mis-click penalty. Fast mouse-action with my fingers on the wrong (for me) mouse buttons is straining.
