The Match 3 That Has It All!
I love the variety presented in this game! The developers gave it EVERYTHING when they put this one together! The moving game board is great fun and even harder at 'night', you earn resources to restore the environment and animal life of the island and its waters, you have puzzles to assemble and photos to take of your restored animal/fish life. Really and truly a FUN, FUN game! I can't wait for the next version to come out! Be sure to read ALL the little tips offered so you don't get lost as the game progresses.
Have fun and enjoy!

This has beautiful graphics and love the music. The moving board is a challenge until you get used to it but has an easy to follow map. A great change from the usual doom and gloom and frantic clicking away trying to keep up. Wish BF would come up with mmore like this and hope there is a sequel.

This is my first ever review. What a great game!!!
The board moves as you play and each level offers a different look. Some areas of play were hidden and I had to refer to the map often to see where I was on the board and where I needed to go. Paradise Quest has 2 modes, timed and untimed, and you can change at any level. On some levels, you have a "swinging vine" which is helpful and a "must" for reaching some areas of play.
As for the story line, I skipped over it after the first couple of scenes.
I love the tropical feel of this game and did not find the music annoying.
If you enjoy Match 3 challenges, this game is a must have!

Beautiful game, with a twist
Like going on a fabulous trip through the rainforest, with tropical-themed matching games, mini-puzzles, and an intriguing exploration of real wildlife in its lush habitat.
But...there was a twist to the game I just couldn't adjust to. The game board moves as you make matches. As you make a match on the right side, the game board will shift that direction so that you lose sight of the far left side of the board. A match towards the bottom of the board, and it shifts down, so you lose the top of the playing area. There is no way to shift the playing board except to make a match in the opposite direction you want the playing field to go.
I really tried to get used to this, but I couldn't. I like to see the whole playing field at the same time, and it became an issue in my game play. Someone else might find a moving game board a lot of fun. Otherwise, this is a wonderful game.

The movement in the game is a bit tiresome

I love this game, but it doesn't come with any Instructions. What does "Extra Resources" mean? What do I do when "Extra Resources" pops up? I am on Level 38 now and learning how to play this game while playing it. I wish there were Instructions.
I LOVE THE MUSIC TOO!! I wish there was a CD to purchase the music!

Gorgeous graphics but.....
I agree with other reviewers who had a problem with the moving gameplay. I just find it really annoying that I cannot see the whole board at once, it almost seems too big for the screen or something so it has to keep moving. Big thumbs down for that one. I would recommend this game if the shifting screen doesn't bother you, otherwise be prepared for a bit of motion problems. I wanted to like this game, it's really well done otherwise. If you are not sure, just make sure and try before you buy. Unfortunately I won't be buying this one.
