Unwell Mel ?
Quite original, but a little too easy
I have been playing this game on the Big Fish Community and then at Big Sea Games, and was looking forward to playing it again. It is still quite fun to pass some time with, but it has been made much too easy, compared to how it was on the community. Every couple of clicks almost your whole board is refilled with items, whereas you needed an upgrade for that before. That said, it's still much more original than most match-3 games.

DON'T BE TOO QUICK TO USE BOARD HELP
Personally, I found this game to be extraordinarily and unnecessarily longer than most Match 3 games and am happy that I've completed it; there are just over 300 levels with 100 ailments.
I noticed a few things that might be helpful; while there are power-ups that you purchase and upgrade through the salesman, there are also board "helpers" and I suggest that you not be too quick to use them.
* the "x" is a horizontal blaster
* the vertical arrow blast everything up and down a row
* the coins will randomly replace objects and when they dissipate, move the other objects one row down
* the Fresh Start I found good to use AFTER I'd done my best to clear as many tiles as possible on my own. Fresh Start just means that it'll move the objects around; it does NOT mean that you have to restart that level.
The GOOD thing about them is that you're able to move them around as you do the other tiles WITHOUT having to use them until you're ready (then click on them) except for the coins, which will disappear on their own in a few seconds but sometimes you're able to make beneficial moves first.
The BAD thing about them is that they do NOT break and clear the tile for you; all they do is remove whatever object is on that tile that you still need to clear EXCEPT for the yellow bugs -- they will remove the objects AND clear the tiles if they're close enough to the tiles that need to be cleared.
The green bugs are a troublesome sort as they will "expand" until they pop and if you've not cleared them BEFORE popping, they will cause a tile to become a tile that you've got to work on AGAIN to clear.
One of the other bit of GOOD NEWS is that when the pink bugs click together (you have to find a 3rd pink bug or use other means to get rid of them) and leave empty spaces around them, you CAN move objects into those empty spaces if you need to in order to continue playing the level,
Fortunately, this game has timed and untimed modes of play; I don't think that I'd have been able to complete several levels had I been playing in timed mode.

Mel is okay.
I bought this game after reading so many positive reviews.
It was fun...at first. Sound fx are fun, wacky illness names are fun.....but it is repetive. REPETITIVE. There are -what seem like- a gazillion levels and the objective is always the same. I've become bored with it and I'm still about 40-50 levels from the end.
I won't say I WOULN'T recommend it...but I can't honestly say I WOULD either. Since I must specify one or the other I'm gonna say yes for simplicitys sake.

60 minute trial
I tried this game, but just could not get into it. For those with a mind that can figure out the game play it will be fun.
