Alchemist's Apprentice 2: Strength of Stones is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow! A match 3 worthy of 5 stars This game has more depth than the average match 3. On the surface it appears quite ordinary and boring, If you read the directions you'll find that different combinations of power-ups cause unique effects that will help you achieve 3 stars. The game allows you to replay earlier levels with your new powers, and has timed, moves, and relaxed modes. The graphics are great, it has a real story line, and you can click at top speed with no problems. A great and more challenging match 3.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Match 3 I like match 3 games a lot. Everyone has different things that they like or look for in a game. For me, I want the option of no timer and no limited moves. I want to enjoy myself -- not be harassed. I also want to be able to make moves immediately, especially while things are automatically falling. I like different challenges (drop something, collect a certain number, etc). This game has everything I like in it. I would purchase it if it weren't for the subject matter. If I have to interact with witches, demons, gods, etc, then the game is not for me. A similar game that involves science fiction, steampunk, non-occult storytelling, and the like are most welcome.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun game A cute fun little M3 game and buy for me. Sort of like a scaled-down version of Gummy Drop.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Buy for Me Finally! A challenging M3 - and with the choice of relaxed, timed or limited moves mode. I had plenty of fun playing the demo, found it to be of the same high quality as the two Imperial Island games I purchased a few years ago + enough new (bonuses and how to use them in particular) to keep me well entertained. Large game boards, clear graphics, fast & smooth play. Here's hoping the fun and challenge continue to the end of the game (I muchly regret the high rating, based on the demo, I gave the last M3 game I reviewed). I suggest starting off in relaxed mode because the tutorial is way behind in telling you how to use the bonuses you create -- and you need them to earn those 3 stars. For instance, it took me until the 3rd level to figure out I needed to include the coloured arrows and bombs in a same-coloured match to get them to work. The tutorial didn't tell me that until level 4 or 5 which would've been really frustrating if I were playing timed or moves. Perhaps that's common knowledge for many other M3 players but it wasn't for me. As for those 3 stars per level -- I love a good M3 game and get bored long before the end if there's no real challenge. And in my book, there's no real challenge if I can earn all 3 the 1st time I play almost all the levels. I play a game the first time just for fun (relaxed mode, can't 'lose') and if I love it, I'll play it again with earning all those stars as my main goal. And if I really, really love it, then I gotta play it yet again, in timed mode :-) Boy, am I hoping this is one of those...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot to this game At first this seemed very simplistic but the more I played the more involved it became Played through the first 10 levels then started over to use the various power ups and strategies learned. A lot of fun. Much more involved game than it first appears. Good colors, the character drawings are odd but not a real issue I bought it - I like this game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like it. I find this game to be enjoyable, but then I play on the relaxed mode, don't need the tension of trying to do it the hard way. I like the powerups and how the game plays. Found it to be interesting and fun and worth the $3.49 they are charging today, so I bought it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Fun, Addictive Match 3 game! A new game by Quick Click Games ("Magica Travel Agency" and "Save Halloween") is especially welcome during a period in which there seems to be a dearth of good new match-3 games. You can play in relaxed, moves, or timed modes. Colors and graphics are really good, and the music (which I almost always turn off) is pleasant and relaxing.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Feels like someones first attempt at a game and yet it's the second? I don't know if the store description was written by BF staff or provided by the developers, but it's one thing to imply a storyline when there isn't one. Storyline Nonexistent. The store page says something about rescuing an uncle and activating a teleporter, but the storyline is bare bones. Maybe the Uncle (who sounds more like a title rather than a relative) gets stuck later on than to the point where I played. I've seen older games with better story than this... Graphics I wouldn't call the graphics 'stunning', but it's pretty good. Gameplay I noticed that the demo only gives you 10 stages, but I didn't play that far in. The implementation is also strange since they give you all of the on-board bonuses from the start without explaining what they are or what they do. As for the 'local residents helping you' mentioned, the only one so far is just someone popping up on the map and giving you cash. The whole thing just doesn't feel well implemented. Overall This feels like it's someones first attempt at a game, and yet this is the second in the series?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from IF YOU WANT TO EARN 1 OUT OF 3 STARS THIS IS THE GAME FOR YOU! I suspect this was another f2p mobile game converted to a desktop version with very animated cartoon graphics. You can play in a Relaxed Mode, Limited Time or Limited Moves Modes and I tried both the Limited Moves and Limited Time Modes and I was constantly losing or at best earning one or 2 stars. Unless you want to use up all your bonuses it's nearly impossible to win these levels, if this were a mobile game you'd be soaking a lot of money into it just to get ahead! There are 12 Trophy awards to earn (you must "claim" your reward by going into the Trophy section after earning an achievement.) and 32 Collectible Cards to earn (when you complete a set you receive a prize) As you progress through the levels you will meet characters that give you rewards, trade items with you or prevent you from progressing until you meet specific requirements. Although this is a colorful game, it's exactly like all the other Limited Moves Match 3 games that have been released lately, where you choose a bonus to start each level, with the same goals of collecting a specific number of specific tiles. The tiles are large and very cartoonish looking, and it's so easy to make large matches that you're constantly acquiring bonuses on the board which makes it seem like the game is playing itself! Just like the other frequently released Match 3 games, it takes forever for all of the extra moves to be played through at the end of each level. Before the start of each level, you are given the opportunity to use Bonuses such as Combo Bonuses. There are also bonuses to use at your discretion such as a Grenade to destroy all tiles of the same kind, a Hammer to take out a single tile, or a Volcano to remove 5 random tiles. Large Matches will earn Bonuses on the board and must be included in a color specific Match to detonate such as, a four tile Square gives you a Potion to create a random bonus, a Match 4 in a row gives you a horizontal or vertical Line destroyer (depending on which direction the match was made originally) a Match 5 in a T or L shape gives you a Bomb, a Match 5 in a row gives you Lightning to destroy several same color tiles, a Match 6 gives you a Scarab to break bricks. You can also swap 2 Bonuses that are next to each other to create a bigger explosion. There are the usual Obstructions (not including the Level Blocker Quest Obstacles) such as Gold and Silver Tiles, Stone & Double Stone Blocks, and Shifting Tiles. If you lose you can add a few moves for coins or spin a Fortune Machine to gain free moves. If you don't care about earning all 3 stars this is the game for you but in my opinion, they don't give you enough moves or time to be able to beat the levels, and I suspect it was an intentional feature as a mobile game??
