Good old match game
I bought this game ages & ages ago & just reloaded it thinking it was easy.
kinda sorta. you need to match different elemtnt within a time frame, you have a reshuffle & swap you can earn at a cost of accumilated points, once there are no more moves or you cannot use those tools, you Duel the Guardian for additional points. Not always easy since the guardian (computer) can sense where the games it going.
It's an easy relaxing game & fun, little grey matter invilved, and the "helper" has some cute saying if you click on him accidently.
Bonus plays (think ghost from from another era) and trophies. I just watch out for Level 5 game 5, it's a tough one.

This is one of the first games I ever played and it certainly does not get old. It dosen't matter how many "Magic Match" they come out with this is the Classic one :) ! I definitely recoment this game it delivers hours and hours of fun and challenge!

A Very Good Game!
I loved this game and I don't even like Match 3's!
All modes of gameplay were brilliant but I particularly liked Duel Mode. It was very fun to battle against myself or a friend and magic points and amount of components to find could be adjusted to your liking.
The fun factor was brilliant. I was obsessed with this game.
Being able to cast spells to aid you in the game. Swap spell allowed you to switch the places f any 2 components while the reshuffle spell changed the board.
Giggles was just adorable. I loved his squeaky voice!
The option of a tutorial was included and the tutorials were very helpful.
The rewards you got for completing a level.
The bonus level was very fun and exciting
Would've liked a bit of a storyline included with the game.
The songs were weird and annoying.
Although a study was included, I did not see the point of it. I thought it was worthless and just took up space.
As you can see, there's virtually nothing not to like about this game. I ran down the trial just like that and I guarentee you'll love it!!

Not a great game
I bought this game based on the reviews and I'm sorry I did. If you lose a level, you have the option of playing it again or skipping it. You can't skip it - you have to play it over & over until you are lucky enough to pass it.
There's an option to play against the computer in order to try and pass the level, but the odds are stacked in favor of the computer, meaning I have never won a duel.
This is a timed game and ends up raising my blood pressure. If you like timed M3s and don't mind consistently losing a level, this game is for you. If you don't like timed games and get frustrated losing all the time, then don't bother with this game.
FYI, this game runs my CPU at 100%. It will just go black screen and one time my comp froze totally. I am very good at troubleshooting comp problems, and have no problems with any other Big Fish game.

Addictive retro game
This game has been out for some time, but I had recently rediscovered it after losing it awhile back. Magic Match is one very addictive game, and it will keep you going for hours, and even days. You start out as a wizard on a little quest in an enchanted forest with a furry companion not unlike an Ewok. This annoying little dude is Giggles, and he is about the only annoying about this game, except for the bard that sings a silly little ditty between areas as you go on your quest.
This is not the typical match 3 game, as you will be collecting components on the grid to cast spells and make potions. With each new area you come into, the objects on the grid change, and there are more barriers added to make your gameplay increasingly difficult, but they always stay on theme. In the forest, hunt the grid for big blue mushrooms and bugs and such. In the tropics, for pirate treasure and hulu masks on a volcanic island, so the terrain does change along the way. In some places, Giggles takes over the grid and plays his own version of Pac-Man.
To really enjoy this game, you have to remember that is was created back in the early 2000s-late 1990s, and click the option to mute Giggles. It makes the gameplay so much better, but the bard's silly songs are few, and far between, so just listen as you give your eyes a break from the grid. You will soon find yourself competing with others in your house and trying for a better score in Magic Match.

I love this game!
Owning over 100 M3 games, I can declare that there are not many that I really love, but this is one of them! The color and graphics are wonderfully vivid and bright, the music is soothing-something I find very rare in any game-the gremlin can be a bit irritating; however, you do have the option to turn off HIS sound alone, then you?ll get speech bubbles you can read. The storyline is sung rather than spoken as you change locations, and the voice and intonation are funny. The game board is tipped at an angle, so it makes finding the matches even more challenging. The timer is generous and time is added for each locked square you unlock. If you hesitate too long you are given a subtle hint of matches still available. I do love that the icons change as you progress through the levels. I'm still working at the lowest level of difficulty, so I'm not yet getting the choices of spells, but look forward to it in the future as I improve. I've already purchased the next level of this game because this one is so much fun! Enjoy!
