Call of Atlantis
Match 3 hybrid
An older but still excellent Match 3. Includes FROG, and put items back game play. Definitely a thinking match 3 -- you must move items down and off the board to beat levels. Timer and lost lives for not completing levels. Gets quite challenging as you progress. Thoughtful use of power ups required. Definite replay value, with each "journey" presenting more obstacles. Graphics still hold up as attractive.
There is a screen saver -- it may not function well in Leopard / Snow Leopard.
Definitely worth a demo for the game play.

Oh the blasted timer again
Why can't they make games with and without the timer. I would love to have this game, but am afraid on down the line it will get hard and the time runs out then you lose and have to start over or something like that. I played it on my laptop and the swapping part of the screen was small. So it will be a no buy for me AGAIN.

I don't usually like match 3 games, but this one was pretty good. It was mostly match 3 with some HO scenes. The graphics were pleasing and bright though not realistic. I think you should try the free version before buying, but it is overall an interesting game. If you need something simple and fun, this is it. Gameplay is pretty short too, but still worth it.

Nice entertaning game. Not sure I like the full concept but it's a good Match 3 game. I liked it.

I loved playing this game and enjoyed the levels getting more and more difficult.

This game only has 2 faults..
Cant play in relaxed mode
Cant make speedy matches, you have to wait for matches to finish before making another move.
I find that annoying.
If those things dont bother you it is a game worth buying. But not for me

Another mistake for me
I bought Call of Atlantis hoping it was a remake/improvement. It's not. I had the older version and like the older one the more you play the faster the timer goes. I can't beat the timer. I love the new HO scenes but over all I can't play it. I am old and have a shaky hand and the timer goes to fast. I was hoping I could turn off the timer, no luck.
Many of you will like this if you have a fast hand.

Easy to pass the time
Seems a bit kiddish, my 9 year old grandkids love it. Something to do when I don't want to really think.

Sometimes "new" is not "improved"
Perhaps this version of "The Rise of Atlantis"--still one of the best Match 3 games offered, though older--was supposed to be geared for a younger audience, but if you liked RoA, do not waste your time on this. The tiles are very poorly drawn, the additional HO vignettes are no fun, add nothing to the game, and difficult because the graphics are so poor.
Big disappointment. I do not recommend this game.
