rainy afternoon match 3
Great little match 3 if you don't like too much pressure or are new to match 3s.
A choice of custom cursor, which worked well for me, liberal timer for each level. Bright easily understood game, info before each level starts so you know whats what, some of the match 3s lately you need a Science degree to understand what everything is for.
Check the "Extras" tab to see Achievements, Trophies etc.
Outline of the game is you have to fill towers which represent the Elements which then can be used for exploding the tiles on the board. The usual 'line' clear when you match 4 or more.
In between mini games of "pipes" or finding "so many" of something, nice break from matching tiles.
So if you want an undemanding Match 3, this is it

Terribly Boring Match 3 Game ---- YAWN!
I LOVE a good match 3 game and own several as my "go-to" games when I need a leisurely day of gaming. This game missed the mark ..... by a LOT!
The storyline, which took forever and a DAY to tell, is basic. Help the wizard complete his spell/potion/magic/whatever to create .... the Philosopher's Stone! End of story but it took pages and pages and pages of reading to tell.
The graphics are good. The music ok. Sound fx nothing remarkable. This is a timed game ... no option to play "relaxed" but you don't need to ..... because the level doesn't end until you fill up the "bar". You cannot lose.
You get bombs (of a sort) for making matches of 4 or more. These will blow up a row either vertically or horizontally (I couldn't figure out how it chose which direction to destroy). That's the game ... in a nutshell. Boring.
The storyline never goes anywhere. There are no mini games or hidden object games or anything to break up the monotony of this game. And, believe me, it is monotonous.
This would be great for beginners. This is definitely NOT a purchase for me. There are TONS of more entertaining match 3 games on the BFG site. I would recommend trying a few others out before committing to wasting time on this one.
But, if you do enjoy the demo and choose to purchase it for yourself .... well ....

ARE YOU KIDDING ME???
I've never given a review based on a trial demo but this game makes me feel it necessary to do so.
I've played MANY Match3 games -- some I've completed and others I've not -- and the ones that I've not was due to becoming too frustrated at having to repeat levels over and over and over again at HIGHER levels.
I've repeated Level 3 -- I repeat Level 3 --10x and I've been UNABLE to accomplish the task. If this game is THAT difficult at Level 3, I can only imagine how impossible it would be for me to even consider ever completing this game.
