This game is very similar to "Vesuvia;" I think it must be by the same company. There is an UNTIMED mode. I rarely buy any game that does not have an untimed/relaxed mode option.
As other reviewers have described, the game board moves according to where you are on the board and you can never see the entire board. That is part of the challenge. But there is a map you can use for help knowing where you are.
This is a Match-3 game, but there is a quasi-HOG element also. You must restore habitats and take photos of the creatures that have returned. Most of these are easy to spot but not all.
I've played the entire game and will enjoy playing it again.

BEST BIGFISH GAME I OWN
I own about 100 Bigfish games and needed an easy game that could keep me interested as I have just had a spinal operation.
Match 3 is not my usual game but decided to try it. I LOVE THIS GAME and continue to play game after game and will go until the end, I don't want it to end.
The graphics are incredible, the music is great and the moving board makes it very interesting. You need to keep note where you have been on the board and "find" parts of it that are not visible on the little map.
The only thing that I find annoying is the torch searches as they blow out and you are left in the dark but this is why the game is so good, it increases the difficulty level and hey, that's why we play these games.
Bigfish, please make another game similar to this one as soon as possible.

This game has all that a game should have!
It's really nice in graphics, and the colors are beautiful.
It has it's easy levels, and also some hard levels, where you wander around in the dark and must turn on lights, which after a while blows out, and have to be found and turned on again.
When the game sort of come to the end, around level 54, and you get the GOOD JOB ! it doesn't end there.
Oh no, as long as you don't go to the beginning and use another name to play with, you can continue in what seems like forever.
Have read some place on the internet about level 256 and they are still not at the end.
I would like to mention one more thing about this game, as in my opinion this has an absolute outstanding music soundtrack with a big variation and not the short one is used to in games.
All in all this games get a 10 out of 10 in my book!

Welcome to paradise
This M3 game is well worth the money. The puzzles are huge, as you progress. Take your camera along, and enjoy your adventure.

What a great game!
For a different match 3 game, this one has it all. There's other things to do, along with the match 3. You have a puzzle to do after each level, you take pictures of wildlife, and earn money to buy things, like trees, etc. It's a game about bringing the habitat back to life that will draw the animals, fish, birds, and other critters back to the area. When you take a picture of each critter info is added to it telling what it is, and other info. That's very interesting. The playing field moves as you play, and you travel around it looking for the things you need to complete the level. I wasn't sure I'd like that feature but it's different and fun. You don't see the whole playing field while playing, but there is a small square on the bottom left of the screen that has a map of the area that shows you the shape of the field, and when you get so many points you can click on the map and go to other areas that you haven't checked out yet. You get neat items to blow areas up, like a tornado, pickax, earthquake, and other things. After so many levels you'll come to areas that are blocked off with vines, rocks, and a river. You get the items you need to go further as you get points. For instance, if you come to a river you get a raft to cross it, a pickax to get through rocks, etc. This game is really a lot of fun, and I like it better than any other match 3 game that I have, and I have many of them. I highly recommend this game. If you like match 3 games you'll love this one.

Love This Match 3 Game
I LOVE this game. Match 3 and collect resources for your island, while conserving the land and aquiring new animals. I like the mini games and the match 3 game is unique with a moving board.

Great Eco Friendly Game
I love the environment and animals, but find that eco-oriented games usually boring. This one is not. The game mechanics are original and fun. And restoring the habitat for the animals and then taking their picture is intersting in that game
