An entertaining, strategic M3 with a unique style Don't be fooled by the cutesy, kiddie, cartoony opening. This will not be an easy game, particularly if you want 3 stars. However, it is very entertaining and may require some strategic planning and rethinking. This is a swap M3, with a unique feature: the tiles (referred to as buttons) are double-sided and can be flipped to reveal a different image. The levels are untimed, but there are limited moves, goals to complete and 3 stars to achieve. To get 3 stars, complete the level in as few moves as possible. A great feature here is that you do not lose a move if flipping tiles. During the demo there were coloured tiles that needed to be cleared, sometimes twice, on-board bomb bonuses, a special hammer bonus that needed to be activated and a pin obstacle. A pinned tile cannot be flipped. Later, the pins will also jump around. That was fun - I found it easy to lose track of other goals while chasing pins, lol! You'll earn money to repair damaged buildings and there are additional achievements to meet. Overall, lots to do and more to come. I'm looking forward to discovering what else the game has!

Great game Great to play a twist on the standard match 3 game. This game requires some thinking and strategy, but is certainly not undoable. For me it was the perfect amount of challenge and I consider myself an intermediate player. I don't care much for a storyline in a match3 game, so I didn't let the poor storyline influence my rating. Enjoy! August 12, 2016
My Favorite Game! This is now my favorite game! It's a match 3 games, yes, but you can click on the "buttons" and they will change colors. It's challenging to get the 3 stars. I play it everyday! It's my kind of game. I get tired of the same old match 3. This is different and I enjoy it! August 22, 2016
Different Match-3 This game has a difference- flipping the pieces to make a match (hopefully). The drawback though is a limited number of moves, although the flips do not count as moves. It would seem the relaxed mode is only available after conquering the hard mode. I am stuck on level 4. At least it does not have a chain mode which I despise. I would suggest trying it at any rate. There are not that many new match 3s. August 13, 2016
Patience: a much needed virtue for this game [review based upon completed regular game mode and bonus boards] Pros: untimed, unique 2 sided piece concept, recent game upgrade enables relaxed [unlimited swaps] mode at start, great challenge Cons: green tiles hard to see, very slow paced game, poor storyline, different playing mechanics take getting used to 100 levels with 10 bonus levels unlocking after all achievements are won. Don't be fooled by the cartoonish look of this game. The regular mode is NOT a child's game. The developer recently updated the game so the relaxed mode is now enabled all the time, but it's a crying shame if you don't at least check out the regular mode because you'll be missing out on the truly unique spin on M3 gaming. All the pieces are 2 sided, and in regular mode you have to strategically flip the pieces with a single click to get your matches instead of doing the usual dragging to swap most of the time - there's a limited number of swaps given more as a "bailout" for when flips aren't producing moves. Interesting powerups that aren't the same old, same old, either. The main drawback I found was that flipping pieces makes the levels very time consuming especially near the end of the game. Also, the brightly colored pieces seem to obscure the pale green tiles that need to be cleared, and it's difficult to differentiate the different sized bombs. Some of the other playing mechanics aren't obvious either. Check the game forum for tips. The storyline was terrible and it looks like the developer had planned to use voiceovers at some point but left them out for some reason? If you don't mind taking your time going through the levels and having to think outside the everyday M3 box, much recommended! August 19, 2016
very fun kids would love it love all the games. mostly played is hidden objecy card games and match 3 games August 10, 2016
I Lost A Button Once upon a time, something terrible happened...... a normally peaceful Match 3 game became stressful and boring! Buttonlands may never be repaired to its former glory because I packed my toolbox and headed back home, to play Cradle of Rome and Cradle of Egypt, really good Match 3 games! I'm sure some gamers will dig this basic Match 3 game, but for me the Limited Moves feature was a giant turn off that overshadowed the uniqueness of "tile flipping" Because you are in Buttonlands, the tiles are different variations of buttons, boring buttons, how creative can you get with a button after all? Each level has the goals listed on the left side which usually consist of matching specific buttons of a specific amount, such as 20 green buttons and 30 yellow buttons. Most levels also requires you to make matches upon all green cells, or red cells that then become green and require a third match to complete. The goals need to be completed within a specific number of moves that is shown above the goals to achieve all three gold stars. At first I liked the "FLIP" feature offered, where each button tile can be flipped over with a simple click, revealing an alternate button tile. Then it became apparent that flipping tiles was a necessity, strategically, because you simply cannot beat the level without doing it because there aren't enough allotted moves otherwise to reach the goals. Because there are so few allotted moves, you must flip tiles to find the right combinations strategically to win. Large matches of 4 or more, will earn a Bomb on the board. The larger the match, the more powerful the bomb. According to the size bomb, it will have directional arrows indicating what directions it will destroy tiles such as an X or cross configuration. If you use the Bomb in a match, the bomb will explode, BUT, it will count as a legitimate move. If you simply just "click" on the bomb to detonate it without swapping, the bomb still explodes, destroying tiles AND it won't count as a move. As you progress additional tools will be added starting with the hammer which allows you to chose where you want to destroy tiles. Gold buttons (not to be confused with yellow buttons) can be collected by clicking on them (doesn't count as a move) and the gold is used to repair Buttonlands, The levels quickly become more difficult with the addition of obstacles like the Push Pin, these tiles cannot flip and require a match made of the same button under the pin. I think this will be a game that is either loved or hated so you really should try this game before you buy it. August 10, 2016
STOPPING AT TWENTY SEVEN It seems to me that the Holy Grail of Match 3 games is the achievement of continuing and mounting interest without increasing difficulty until one can go no further. I got a good deal of pleasure from the game and its special feature of ,as in the game Othello, flipping the buttons to make new combinations without spending moves. But then I came to a point , the level 27 of the title but it could have been another earlier level where I pushed through finally, where I said to myself--"you have spent enough time and energy and wit on this progressively more diffricult game. this is the end. so long its been good to know you!" It is not a satisfying feeling but the alternative is wasting a larger chunk of my life than I wish to only to inevitably come to a still more final roadblock down the road. Developers take note: search for that grail of progression without loss of interest. Plot can be one clue and allowing a fully relaxed mode may be another or perhaps ,as in hopas, why not allow in fact the ability to skip? Not everyone enjoys butting head against wall until it gives way and one faces a next thicker wall. three stars for the interest I had... no recommendation because of its for me dead end quality. try it if you wish and see...but not on my recommend.

Too frustrating for me I'm a huge Match-3 fan, but I do like to feel like I'm making progress, especially in the beginning. I wasn't even able to get to the fourth level without having to replay levels once, twice - even more! I play games to exercise my brain and to relax, this game just isn't for me. August 11, 2016
No Timer Game I enjoy Match 3 games but, this one was a tad kiddie like and you only have certain moves to do finish the levels. When I spend my money I don't want to have someone tell me how many moves to make in a game. This game would be nicer if there was a choice on how a gamer chooses to play. Timer, No-timer, number moves. If that was in the game I would enjoy it more. August 11, 2016
