Flip or Flop Home Edition
Great timed game
I very rarely like or buy timed match-3 games and even when I do I can't finish all the levels so it was a rare treat that I could. So I loved the fact that it was easy (or forgiving) enough. If you're faster you can make more money faster and buy Granny's home sooner but if you're slow like me you still can earn money and "flip" the house even if you don't complete it. I will replay so I can pay more attention to the renovation rather than just rushing to match.

It's a Different Kind of Match 3
In this M3 you don't swap, group or chain tiles. The goal is to make matches on the grid by clicking arrows located at the top, bottom, left and right sides of the grid, causing the line of icons to shift one place and match two other like icons, or a matching bomb, in the line (Note: the background color of the bomb tells you which icons you can match it with. Took me a while to figure that out!). It's not as easy as it sounds in the beginning. Your brain has to shift from what it knows in traditional M3 to this concept. You are given a certain number of each type of renovation material to collect to achieve the goal of the level. If you do, you increase your earnings and are able to move onto another property on that level to renovate. That's about all there is to this game, but the different kind of matching has it's appeal. I didn't care for the music but the graphics are bright and colorful. When you've earned enough money, the game will tell you that you're eligible to move to a better neighborhood where the purchase price of the properties is more in line with your current available funds. Give it a try...I enjoyed the trial, got about 30% through the game in the one hour, but not one I would purchase.

My first review
Here is my review. There is not a lot to do in the game. There should be more stuff. I thought the visuals and sound was pretty good. The game needed a lot more challenge. It is just getting matches in a grid when fixing a house and managing money. The storyline goes like this: Your granny forgets to pay bills and looses her house (which is more like a mansion). To buy her house back, you need to earn money by fixing up other houses.
That's the review. Hope you enjoyed.
