Hidden Wonders of the Depths
This has become my favorite game. I've played it at least 5 times. It's easy to play and watch TV at the same time. Nothing to task the brain, but I'm always trying to better my score. You can't go wrong buying this game. I wish I was more familiar with match 3 games to pick out and buy others like this. I'm just downloading II and III to see how they play.

The crab Is In !!!
Love this game! Challenging but very cute. Bought it 3 years ago and Im proud to say I am now on level 6. I think Im getting better, lol. This is not one to finish in a few days unless you are real good at match three games. I always come back to this one. Alot of fun for me anyways and a lot of replay.

This is without a doubt one of the greatest games I have ever played!! It is suitable for adults and children alike (kids may want to do the relaxed, untimed level) The puzzles were extremely challenging and so different from other games. Then there is that saucy lil Lobster. He made me laugh and drove my dog crazy! His little noises and meeps are too funny. Totally addictive to play!! Well Done!!! Keep them coming!

Entertaining match three game
I love all three games from this series.
This one is the most frustrating of the three because you cannot choose an untimed mode from within the game (though if you can find the xml file for each level in the program files for the game, you can edit this to increase the amount of time available to complete the levels - the time is given in the number of seconds, so changing the time value to 3600 will give you an hour to complete the board, which is more than enough time - but this tweak is done outside of the game and it not an option that can be selected while the game is running).
Having overcome the timing issue by editing the game files, I now thoroughly enjoy the game and often return to it when I want something to help me unwind in the evening.
Moving the little character along the path on the swap boards was entertaining and I would have preferred it if the game were solely of the 'swap to make a match of three' kind. I found the 'click on a group of three or more' boards rather boring, especially as a 'helpful' instruction popped up EVERY TIME I played it. Very irksome!
The magic card puzzle was annoying because it interrupted the board I was playing to construct the card. I didn't really see the necessity for the cards at all and still have no idea what they were for.
The other mini games, such as the memory games and the find x number of objects, were bearable though I would not at all miss them if they were not there.
On the whole, this is an adequate little game, and would have had four stars if it were not for the inability to play in relaxed mode, five if it were just the swap style match three game only. I recommend that anyone wishing to play this game edit the xml files for the levels that are difficult to get passed in the limited time the game gives to give yourself more time, and thus progress to the end of the game.

I am timed out
No where was it mentioned that this was a timed game only and at 77 years of age I am just not that fast anymore. So I wasted my money - could not even pass game 4-3. So frustrating !
Please could games indicate if they are timed and without an option.
What little I played of the game I liked a lot. Its bright,cheerful and entertaining.

Doesn't work well on Mac apparently
I've learned to try first and it worked fine for me for the first few levels so I bought it. But once I reached level 6-8 I discovered one can't complete it without using the power-ups and they don't work on my computer. Indications in the forum are that the third in the series may work better. I am old and prefer to play un-timed games so found it got very boring to play level 6 over and over and over again because I couldn't finish 6-8 in the time allotted.

Hidden Wonders Of The Deep
I read the first 8 reviews and after playing the game for a short time decided to buy it.
It was a lot of fun at first but after you get into the higher levels of the game it becomes impossible to go on. The tools you need are locked out and if you do not make it through in 4 tries you have to start that portion of the game and and all the levels over again.
I do not recommend this game.
