Spellarium 5 is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 21.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just in time to save my sanity With all of the insanity of the Covid-19 going on right now, I was over the moon elated to see the next installment of Spellarium pop up as today's new game. It will help keep my sanity in tact while I play it. The only problem is that once I start playing, it's nearly impossible to stop; so it will be over too quickly. Spellarium and the other one or two games similar to it are at the top of my Favorites List. They are unique unto themselves and always a huge treat. I downloaded it immediately and played a couple of levels before ordering it. As you can see, this isn't a detailed review of all the new features along with the comfortable old ones that are still so much fun since I didn't play the full hour trial before ordering it. I know the history of this particular game and each one is always better than the last. I trust #5 will not break that tradition, If you are new to Spellarium, it might take you a little bit to "get it," but if you utilize the help book in the upper left hand corner and remember that the coins are the only things that matter in completing a level, you'll soon figure it out - just stick with it. After going to my grocery store yesterday and finding so many empty shelves, it's a joy to have Spellarium 5 to take my mind to much more enjoyable places right now. I normally don't like "spot the difference" puzzles, but I am happy to do them in Spellarium. And I enjoy the solitaire games that pop up now and then, too. I am expecting to see the HO scenes, too. It's a great mix of different things to do. I know other reviewers will give you all the nitty gritty details of game play and the "what's old and what's new" information. But, if you are die hard fan like I am, you will be ordering it in the blink of an eye - no need to read any reviews.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always a winner. I have played every M3 this developer has put out. The Spellarium series is my favourite. It a bit like a goldilocks game, not to hard, not too easy...just right! The game is easily recognisable if you have played others. The tiles are mostly new, but some from recent other games by this developer. There are the usual frozen coins, the cannons, droplets to unfreeze coins or create an explosion in the bottle, the fire, the keys seeking locked coins, and the bonus rockets and dynamite. One the new features is a 'toggle' switch. Some parts of the board are faded out...and you may need to get to then to finish a level..or to get your keys moving to the coin on the far side. Sometimes you have coins going in different directions and it is challenging to figure out how not to let one upset the other as you use the toggle and they pass in the night. You may clear a path for one but send the other back. There is also a 'permenant bomb' which requires sometimes an explosion..or 'many' matches next to it to remove it from blocking your path. The usual minigames are there (they never change.. yawn...(Find the difference, cards etc) The tiles are big and colourful, the challenge is certainly there, although I did notice that if I had to repeat a level whilst getting used to 'how things worked'..the tiles seemed to be kinder to me the second time, and I am sure it was not just my imagination! Many more bonus seemed to fall or appear from nowhere?. See what you think. So all in all, and old familiar friend with a few new challenges but as always just a lot of fun to play. I don't always give full stars to games that are mostly the 'same', but the developers always change up the board layouts so they are more 'familiar' than the 'same'. Try the demo, and remember this game is about getting rid of coins not necessarily clearing everything on the board. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from ANYONE WANNA JOIN ME IN MY HAPPY DANCE? Man, these guys sure know how to do Match 3 games right, in fact, that's the only genre they focus on and that my friends are why every Match 3 game they create is a masterpiece! You can always count on FRH to incorporate something new with each release, and you can always count on the games to be challenging. I never bother with the Demo trial on any of the Match 3 games, I go straight for the "Buy Now" button because I'm confident that they will all be superb games...and I've never had buyers remorse on any of the games by FRH Games. It may be a Monday morning but I'm doing my Happy Dance, wanna join me? You can play in a Relaxed Mode or a Limited Moves or Limited Time Mode, and you can Enable/Disable the Hint Feature. After each Match 3 level, you can play a Solitaire or Mahjong game as well as my personal favorite, Spot the Difference with differences that aren't as obvious as you'd expect. (you can skip the mini-games) The tutorial is pretty vague but you can click on the Book at the top of the screen to read everything you need to know, including tips & tricks. Spellarium is a Match 3 game where the only things that matter are Collecting the Coins and Collecting Colored Tiles, but those goals are tricky to obtain because there are so many variables. There are plenty of obstacles to make those goals really challenging to obtain, and more than likely, you'll have to replay many of the levels when playing with Limited Moves or Time...this ain't your granny's kind of Match 3 game! There are several types of Coins available: •Gold Coins: requires an adjacent match to collect. •Dirty Coins: require 2 adjacent matches. •Frozen Coins: requires activating torches. •Half Coins: requires joining 2 halves by making matches between. •Locked Coins: requires creating a path for the Key. •Coin Molds: requires guiding liquid gold to the mold to form a coin. There are several Obstacles preventing you from getting to the Coins, however, if they aren't blocking a coin there's no need to overcome some obstacles. Power-ups will destroy most obstacles as well: •Crates: requires an adjacent match to remove. •Shielded Crates: requires an adjacent match on the unshielded portion. •Ground Tiles: requires adjacent matches. •Clay Tiles: requires adjacent matches to remove. •Stone Tiles: requires 2 adjacent matches to remove. •Fog Covered Tiles: requires an adjacent match to remove the fog. •Ice Tiles: requires a match 3 of whichever tile is trapped in the ice. •Locked Coins: requires making matches to create a path in front of the key(s) •Vials: requires filling with purple drops by matching vertically. •Torches: melt ice by making adjacent matches to spread the flames. •Bugs & Bug Coins: chase away or make adjacent matches. •Red & Green Hot Stones: adjacent matches on Red & Green Cells will destroy the stones. •Stumps: requires specified amounts of matches of whichever tile icon is shown on the stump. Large Matches will earn Power-ups on the board, however, there are times when a Power-up can hurt rather than help (read the Tips & Tricks Book) Most power-ups can be moved or double-clicked to activate. •Rockets: selects a target in order of importance. (order shown in Tips & Tricks) •Bombs: explodes with an adjacent match (usually w/ a chain reaction) •Toggles: matches on the toggle switches opens inaccessible board sections. •Cannons: requires an adjacent match on the Red Cell to activate. •Permanent Bombs: usually sets off chain reactions with an adjacent match.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Don't Demo, I Only Buy Every Spellarium I was seriously giving up all hope of ever finding anything worthwhile to spend my coupons or $$ on. If I never see another TM or penguin game, it will be too soon!! Spellarium arrived just in time to chase away the blues caused by a long string of lack-luster games. The Spellarium Series has never lost its ability to keep me entertained with unique match 3 challenges and fun mini games. Although I'm not very fond of the too-easy solitaire and mahjong I still play them sometimes. My favorite is Find the Difference because they are challenging, wish more were included. The graphics and color are always sharp and vibrant, adding more quality to this excellent game. I love "building" the surroundings. The goals, obstacles, power-ups are all positively great, I really like the sound effects and getting to the coins isn't so easy. Every new Spellarium brings something new to the table and the challenge never wanes. A good, solid match 3 game every time! I highly recommend this series for its consistent quality and challenging gameplay. The challenge is not extreme but, in my opinion, the fun is!! And with the Relaxed Mode, I always have a grand time with no pressure to beat the clock. This is easily a 5-star game for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb The Spellarium games are intriguing puzzles solved through 3 matches. This is another superb entry. The mechanics of solving the puzzles are sometimes obscure, but figuring out how it works is part of what sets this series apart from other 3 match games. Icons are beautiful and carefully crafted. The story has evolved overtime, but is basically the same. Help the wizard solve his problem and keep the world in balance. A perfect game for keeping you engaged for hours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spellarium 5 my favourite series!!!! I love this series and another great addition is here. I was excited when I saw this game was available, I have all that is in the series. I don't need to go into a lot of detail as far as the game play, you match 3 different things. They have added a few little twists with cannons to unlock certain areas on the game board. It makes things a little more interesting and fun. It is very addictive that I pretty well play the entire game quite quickly but it's a game that I could play more then once. I recommend this game! It was a definite purchase for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Loved It I love the Spellarium series and this one was no exception. The Wizard is renewed and now needs to obtain a crystal from the bottom of a frozen lake. The match 3 are excellent and consist of tiles, chains, ice blocks and wood barriers to break, fog to overcome and cannons to fire. The mini games were "find the differences" and solitaire which I enjoyed. This developer knows how to make a fun match 3 game and I always look forward to a new addition to the Spellarium series!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Some good, some bad I’ve played Spellariums 3, 4 & 5 all the way through several times. They’re all quite similar, such as having the same powerups, but they each have differences that make each one unique. For example, they all have levels where the only thing that will finish the level for you is the rocket powerup, which requires a match-5 to make. Spellarium 3 goes crazy with those kinds of levels, to the point where how fast you win the level is determined more by luck than skill. And that’s why I rated Spellarium 3 a 1/5. Spellariums 4 & 5 are not that bad. For example, Spellarium 5 has about 9 levels that require one or more rockets…and other levels that may initially seem like they require rockets but do have a way around them. Spellarium 5 is unique in that it adds a variation that is not in 3 or 4: It breaks up many levels into 2 or more sections (all on the same screen) that require you to figure out how to jump to the different sections, & make the jumps at the best time as you advance. And, yes, there’s always a way to jump back if you make a wrong jump. This adds a nice variation to the standard Spellarium playing style. Another good point about Spellarium 5 is in the narrator’s dialogue. In previous versions, he often said something like, “Now we just need to wait,” with no explanation of why we need to wait. In Spellarium 5, he now always gives some explanation of why we need to wait. It’s still fantasy, but now it’s one that’s easier to imagine and follow along with. But Spellarium has several bad points, too, that I’ve noticed while playing all the way through its 110 levels about 11 times: 1. At least 3 times, a level ran out of moves so that there was no way to finish it. Fortunately, the menu button is always visible, and you can replay with no penalty. 2. I’ve often clicked on a rocket in order to activate it by moving it one space, and the rocket activates but WITHOUT moving a space…which always causes a different result. Very annoying. I’d guess that’s caused by the game engine not finishing its previous actions before the next move is made. However, I’ve seen worse catch-up speeds. The worse that comes to mind among the BFG games that I’ve played is in Laruaville 4 (which I also rated 1/5). 3. The ABSOLUTE WORSE point involves the game’s method of giving you a hint. It gives you a hint by making a sound and lighting up one or more squares. The bad part about that is that, at the same time, It grays out the screen…AND makes it impossible to continue until you click TWICE: once to deactivate the hint and grayed screen, and a second time to click where you were trying to click in the first place. And get this: it sometimes does it when the hint is no longer appropriate. And it’s at its worse at level 100, where its grayed hint is activated EVERY SINGLE TIME I CLICK TO MOVE! Even though I’m well aware that I have to go there and, in fact, am trying to GET there. This is overkill to the max. Why not figure out how to give a hint only once or twice…WITHOUT LOCKING THE GAME? It’s additionally annoying because I’m always trying to beat my previous best time for each level. So, my Spellarium ratings are: Spellarium 3 = 1/5; Spellarium 4 = 4/5; Spellarium 5 = 4/5. Here are three other BFG match-3 games I’ve enjoyed playing as much as or more than the Spellariums: 1. 4 Elements 2 (5/5): Unfortunately, it doesn’t list a Windows 10 version. Note: Beware of the last square of blocks that you must pass through. For getting through it, I found & saved images of how to get through it step by step online. 2. Enthralling Realms: Curse of Darkness (4/5): The halfling (Ebbo?) is a bore, but the game is pleasant. 3. Heroes of Hellas 4: Birth of Legend (4.5/5): Challenging in timed mode, but not overwhelmingly so, and you can switch between timed & untimed any time you want with no penalty.
