This review is based on the trial.
Wow, I was really positively surprised when I played this game! I expected it to be your average Match 3, but it'sso much more! First off, it actually has a storyline you care to follow, you can choose to play in either timed or untimed mode, and you can play in swap, chain or group mode - and switch between these even during levels! You have to clear squares to win the level; once you've done that, a key and keyhole appear and you have to guide the key to the hole. You can rotate the board to do that, which is a nice twist! There are two bonuses that constantly refill. The only downside for me is that the levels seem to last quite a few minutes, so it's not a game you can go to and quickly play a level inbetween, you have to bring some time. Graphics and sound are outstanding for a match 3; I really enjoyed the wizard's voice (but you can turn him off, too).
Strongly recommended, especially for Match 3 fans!

If you have nothing better to do .. at least relaxes
- Three game modes: swap (like classic match 3), chain (connecting 3 or more) and group (explode group of 3 or more).
- Timed or untimed.
- You can shuffle the pieces.
- Win mega bonus if you make too many points.
- Colorful, cute, sound ok, but tiresome VO.
- Not challenging

very repetitive even for a match 3
not really building anything. the VO was the same most of the game. 80+ levels to finish.
2 modes of matching....swap, chain, and group. can mix and match throughout levels when the the icon fills back up. probably a good way to finish faster. took me days because each level has 2 phases. i have finished HO games faster. it is a good game to have to fill time. i played until i finished and that is why it took so long. i wouldn't recommend it at full price but discounted it's not a bad buy.
if you are into M3 then you will probably like it, but i only play them occasionally.
