Veronica and the Book of Dreams
Best match 3 for a long time!
At first it looks like a simple match 3 game, but once u start playing u will find a very challenging game and very addictive, if u think u can crack this game in a day or two, forget it, I thoroughly enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone.

A Dream or a Nightmare??? Can Veronica even Get OUT!
I'm not really sure where the story line was going. Maybe if I had purchased the game and seen it through to the end, I would have "gotten" it. Oh well.
The graphics were ok ... definitely not amazing. The music was odd. The sound effects were ghostly "aahhs" and what seemed like the sound of "pops" or "punches". Definitely disconcerting to me.
You earn coins by successfully passing levels, which you STOP doing by level 8. Trust me on this. Up through level 5, things are pretty simple. You use the coins in the "shop" to purchase bonuses of every kind and description.
Veronica's story continues page by page in her "Book of Dreams" or "Nightmares". I don't know what the difference between the two is but when I chose not to replay a level in "Dreams" I went straight to level 77 in "Nightmares". Nope. Didn't pass it so back to Level 8 in Dreams I went.
The very worst part of this game and why it's not a purchase for me, is there really is NO instruction after the initial tiny bit. You start a level and don't really know if you're bringing gems to the bottom and are you supposed to continue destroying monsters and zombies at the same time??? And other levels you don't pass, but you don't know why because all the tiles are broken, every gem gone through the bottom of the game board and every monster killed. Fingers fairly ached from the effort. But, no dice, you still don't pass the level ... and no idea why not.
This is a fast paced, great Halloween-themed game not recommended for beginners. If you are "in the know" about match 3 games you MIGHT "get" this one. I sure didn't.
Give it a try...but for me it isn't a buy.

Nothing new but poorly written
The designer can't write, or at least not in English. Much of it didn't make sense, and the instructions were incomplete. Much of the game playing was routine and stale.
