Could have been a 5
Not your typical match-3. You have to get the delightful little crab to follow a specific path. His little sighs, boogie routine, and silly antics give the game real character. I've played the game at least a dozen times but I'll never play it again. I finally figured out that the scoring makes no sense so playing multiple times is meaningless. There is no time bonus so the longer it takes you to get the crab to the treasure chest, the more points you get. This translates to mindless clicking of matches to run down the timer. You also get more points if you fail a level and have to play it multiple times. Trying for low score doesn't help because you get a really low score if you run out of lives after playing a few rounds. So basically, this is a 'play it once' game. While they're at it, the developers should have an option that doesn't require you to click through the tutorial every time you play. A less annoying timer sound would also be nice.

Such a Hard Game for Me to Play!
Basically, all the player has to do in this game is to get a cute crab from Point A to Point B [hidden treasure] at each M-3 level. A specific path must be followed or the crab cannot move and often, the Match 3 items are far away or at least not where you want them. I found it very hard to advance my sea critter and he was heard to yawn several times because my pace was so slow. No kidding! [Luckily, I was in untimed mode.] There are HOs too and mini-puzzles [including a skip option]. Power ups are also available and eventually, you earn enough money to rebuild Atlantis. The graphics and music are excellent and I rated those 5 stars but I really found it quite a challenge to get my crab moving and stop him yawning rudely...so I uninstalled after about an hour [IF that].

Hated this one
I don't leave reviews often, but, I had to on this one. I loved the first 2 games, but this one, it is so hard by the time you reach the levels in the 30's, that you have to be a guru to win. Never had a problem winning on the timed games in the first 2 of this series. I am really tired of how hard they make the goals after a few levels. I would have liked to finish it, but, you can't switch from timed to casual without starting a new game. I'm not about to start this over after being up to level 37 and couldn't win it.
