Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was therapeutic My husband fell and had a brain injury, his Therapist said to play this game (along with other games) because he needed something that moved his eyes around and not be in a stagnant stare. He played this game every day and over time his injury got better. But this one was his favorite and he still plays this game every day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cradle of Rome I have played hundreds of match 3 games and none of them can hold a Roman Candle to the Cradle of Rome series. I have purchased every game in this series as soon as they are released and the original game is by far the most challenging and most addicting game. When I say addicting I'm not kidding because everyone I've convinced to play, spend hours playing this game so proceed with caution. The goal is to turn all of the blue cells on the board by making matches on them. You earn bonuses that will help you progress, a Hammer for a single tile, Lightning for destroying several random tiles, a Bomb for a specific group of tiles, Shields for destroying a line of your choosing, a Star for destroying all tiles of any one type and a scarab to mix up all of the tiles. Some tiles are blocked by one chain and even 2 chains as you progress which require several matches to break both chains. As you make enough resources and money you build a Roman city and progress with the times, and each building requires you to do specific tasks in order to earn bonuses quicker and earn valuable resources. If you right click on any of the buildings, you can find out what is required (in Cradle of Rome 2 the tasks are more specific) enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Match 3 game Have had this game for years and replay it again and again. You get helps like hammers and bombs and more. I was new at these games and could not get past a certain level. Then the strategy finally hit me. I also have Cradles of Rome II and Egypy. Both the others are different in some ways. I love and play them all. I just now discovered Cradle of Persia. Oh yeah!
