Fun Battle Match 3
Sea Journey is an unusual Match 3 in that you have a computer opponent.
The screen is set up where the top part of the screen has a ship on the left (yours) and a ship on the right (the computer?s). This is where the actual battling takes place. Under this area is the match 3 board.
You get 3 turns to make matches. If you match 4 you get an extra turn, match 5 and you get 2 extra turns. When your 3 turns are done, it is your opponent?s turn to make 3 matches.
Your matches net you gold, gems, experience points, bombs, and the ability to maneuver your ship further from your opponent.
Experience Points are used to upgrade your
When you collect a trio of bombs, your ship fires upon your computer opponent?s ship.
The round ends when one of you sinks the other ship.
Also as you collect gems, the meter at the very top of the screen that starts filling.
When this meter is full? it starts collecting all the bombs fired, both from your opponent and you. You can save them all to make one huge volley that, if big enough will sink the opponent?s ship.
As you progress you can go to port and upgrade you ship or experience, allowing you to use talismans.
Each ship has different strengths and uses different color gems to make maneuvers on your opponent.
In addition to the match 3 element... there are various mini games, that are fun to play.
This game is quite long and just when you think it's done... there is a final battle that is extremely challenging.
For an older game, the graphics are awesome. The scenery is beautiful, too.
The music is nice? but after awhile can become somewhat repetitive.
If you are looking for something different, give this game a try.

Addictive M3, Sea Journey an M3 with a difference
You are challenged by being opposed by the computer. I found the story & the game play great fun & very addictive. Although I have not totally finished the first game I have started a second one under a different profile.
I would think that it would be an enjoyable game for a male too as there are cannons, ships pirates etc!

Wish they'd make Sea Journey 2
I had some problems with the initial download and it wasn't running smoothly but once it got worked out, I really enjoyed the game. I liked the special effects...the sounds and explosions. Wish they would make another newer version that runs better but same idea. The idea behind the game is awesome!
