Cradle of Persia
This is a fun game but impossible to finish
I need to be truthful. I liked the idea. It is educational in that you learn something of the history of Persia. The graphics are good. I like the challenge of the levels until you get to mid level 50 +. I came to level 61 and could go no further. The game itself made it impossible to win. I noticed the same thing with Cradle to Rome. Up to this point it was enjoyable. Just know it is a game you cannot fully finish.

Cradle of Persia
This is a fantastic Match 3 game but I love the Cradle of Rome games so much that in my opinion, this one falls a wee bit short because the mechanics of the game were changed too drastically. This game is a click and drag Match 3 where you click and hold, dragging as large of a chain as possible. If you make a large chain of matches you receive a little robot or even several robots on the board which makes the game on the easy side because you can manipulate the robots to end up right where you need them to clear the board. Bonuses can be earned such as dynamite, a wand, lightning, clover hourglass, and a shield and at first you get a small amount of these bonuses and if you don't use them they will accumulate up to 4 times the power. You can play a bonus game which gives you all of the bonuses on the board and you get 10 chances to try and fill up the bonus panel to full capacity. Even though this is an easier game than the Cradle of Rome series, and it is a bit different than the usual, it's still a fun and relaxing game, enjoy!

Cute and relaxing game
enough said. This is a great match 3 where you earn coins to build a city/farm, etc. The graphics are great, the music soothing. This game is quite relaxing and great for anyone from beginners on up. Glam-ma says go for it.

A game to relax ... you do not have to think, ... although the phases increasing difficulty, it is still very easy.
No story, you will only earning points, gold, and food supplies, and building your city.
Different from others match 3, you have to connect a chain - reminds "4 elements".
Very colorful, good graphics, but tiresome music.
Is good for when you have nothing to do, and just want to relax.

fun at first, but cannot complete
I really enjoyed this game when I started it, but have got to level 60
and can't get any further. Usually pretty good with these, love the lost kingdom which I play all the time, but wish cradle of persia had a relaxed mode or even a skip as I am using up all my live's on this level.

Good but missing strategic info
First and foremost be aware that you must collect as many resources as possible before completing each level! This bit of strategy is never mentioned and is critical to completing the game at the highest level (thus minus TWO stars).
Otherwise, the game is challenging, fun, and long enough to provide good benefit for the money.

Not my kind of match 3
I was so happy to see a "Cradle" game that I bought this one without playing the demo. Too Bad. If you like the other "Cradle" games I think you will be disappointed with this one.

Not a big fan of the trailing, prefer the match three.

NOT LIKE THE OTHER CRADLE GAMES
This isn't a match 3 game, it's a chain game. This is nothing like the other cradle games.

What a HUGE disappointment!
LOVED the other Cradle games - Egypt & Rome. There was a story line - maybe childish, but still fun. The match 3 started as simple, then went to challenging, and the entire experience was relaxing. The "characters" building their cities were delightful. I've played the other "Cradles" many, many times when I just wanted to wind down. Cradle of Persia just wasn't fun. The matching is a drag horizontal/vertical, rather than switching tiles. There's no story line, and I just found it more irritating than fun. Divem "fixed" what wasn't broken. I'm really glad I played the demo before I wasted money on the game. Put it back the way it was, Divem!!!!
