Tropic Story is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 12.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from COLORFUL GRAPHICS~INTERESTING OBSTACLES~DECENT CHALLENGES...but it moves at a SLOTH"S PACE! Don't let the colorful graphics and cutesy tropical critters fool you, this is a challenging Match 3 game, it just takes a while to get there! I was impressed with the colorful graphics, I was impressed with the colorful fruit tiles (blueberries, peaches, raspberries, pineapples, and pears) I was impressed with The Larry Boosters, I was even impressed with the obstacles, especially the Bamboo Shoot Blocks. None of these things matter if the game mechanics are flawed and EVERYTHING else is ANNOYING...as one of my favorite reviewers stated in his review of this game, it's "Unbelievable" This is a Limited Moves Match 3 game available in a Standard or Relaxed Mode which still allows you to lose the level according to another reviewer. This was the first turn-off because most people don't like Limited Moves Modes. You can earn up to 3-Stars per level, but you can't replay the level to try to earn a better star rating unless you quit the level before completing it, assuming you know you won't earn all 3 stars. The ability to replay levels, at will, is a personal "must-have" feature in my book! Power-ups are thrown on the board when making large matches and they are color-specific, meaning they must be included in a match with their associated fruit color to detonate, with the exception of the Lemon Slice which can be dragged to any adjacent tile. The Pictorial explains that a Match 4 will reward you with a Fruit Specific Line Buster (horizontal or vertical) a Match 5 will give you a Multicolored Lemon Slice which removes all of one type of tile on the board that you choose (drag to adjacent tile) A Match T-Shape rewards you with a Mega Fruit Bomb that obliterates all tiles in an X formation, and an L-Shaped Match rewards you with a normal Bomb that destroys adjacent tiles. You can also Combine two Power-ups by dragging one to the other if they are located in an adjacent cell...but that would be "Unbelievable" perhaps even "Amazing" or "Incredible" The Pictorial also explains "The Larry" Boosters you earn in a limited amount, as you progress, I'm assuming the supply can be replenished with the money or gems you earn? Larry can Collect a Single Tile of choice, and Larry can also eat an entire row or column's worth of fruit. I'm assuming "The Larry" has a few more surprises up his wing as you progress? Eventually, you can unlock and equip yourself with 3 Boosters prior to starting the level, including the famous "+5 Moves" that all Mobile App Match 3 games include...hint, hint. The Pictorial does NOT explain most of the Obstacles, you'll have to figure those out by trial and error. The Earth Tiles were explained, but it's a pretty standard feature, to begin with, just make a match to remove the dirt cells, Bamboo Shoots require a couple of matches and so forth. By the time the level rolls around, that's plastered full of Alarm Clocks with a constantly changing number inside, the Pictorial explains absolutely nothing...as if they don't exist? By trial and error, I discovered that you have a specified number of moves to include each alarm clock in a match with their associated fruit (blue alarm clock=blueberry or red alarm clock=raspberry) I'm willing to overlook most of those annoying features, but these are the annoying features I refuse to overlook: *The game mechanics are flawed, available matches become so scarce in some levels that they are constantly having to reshuffle. This happened 8 times during level 18 alone!) When a game is based on Limited Moves ONLY, the game has to be programmed to generate matchable tiles! On one level the goal was to drop fruity-cocktails off a board that was divided into two sections, a top & bottom. I was able to drop the drinks from the top section to the bottom half but ran out of available matches on the bottom section! There were available matches on the top section still, but making matches on the top half did nothing to change the fact that I needed to make matches under the drinks on the bottom half! I was forced to use "The Larry" booster because there was no other options available to complete the level goal! SERIOUSLY? *Large Match Bonuses are a hit or miss feature and oftentimes, you don't receive a bonus on the board...especially when making T or L-shaped matches! *You cannot make fast, consecutive matches, you have to wait for all tiles to stop falling before making another match. This is particularly annoying when the game constantly gets interrupted by those annoying words of encouragement ~Unbelievable~Amazing~Nice~Fantastic~ *After completing the super-short levels, you have to wait for eons while watching a cartoon...First, 2 palm trees appear, followed by a hammock, followed by Timone the warthog & friends lounging on a hammock, followed by a rocking hammock and a grin or two, followed by the score window, followed by a ridiculous dancing panda in his Hawaiian underwear, followed by a pop-up "buy more panda underwear", followed by a pop-up "here's a bag of gems" followed by another pop-up congratulating you on leveling up. None of this can be skipped or fast-forwarded...you're on for the ride! The bottom line is, this could be a decent Match 3 game but because they don't offer any Choices (you can't even choose a Custom Cursor, seriously, a game with eye-popping colors and highly animated graphics, that relies on a system cursor?) When I play a Match 3 game, I expect it to move along, not abruptly stop me in my tracks with every move I make. I expect to be able to make fast, back to back consecutive matches. I expect to be able to replay levels if I don't receive all 3 available stars. I expect newly added features & obstacles to be explained, particularly when they are uncommon features. I expect to have more than one Match 3 option, which includes a Limited Time option, not just a Limited Moves option... and if I'm forced to play only in a Limited Moves Mode, I expect the game to be programmed to give you actual matchable tiles! Lastly, the whole jungle-theme is adorable, the Panda, though annoying and kind of creepy at times, is still thematic and works...but a Pink Gym for Panda? No...just NO-Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh, you're gonna hear me roar!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "UNBELIEVABLE" Well the very annoying parrot like voice which you can't turn off sums this game up perfectly. At first this seems like a game for young children, fine for the first few levels but then gets too hard for them. By the way I completed the first level in 2 moves. Alarm bells first rang when it took just 10 seconds to download this game. I played through the whole demo and got to level 22, way too easy for seasoned game players and there seems to be some flaws with it too. I do not like limited moves so played on relaxed. The clocks for me anyway counted down on moves not time but they seemed to jump from 20 moves way to 6 moves in one move. Not sure if that is a fault or they are trying to keep you alert. Next problem I encountered further in to the game was that you are asked to collect a certain amount of a particular tile yet you did not have any until eventually some showed up. So I changed to limited moves on this level which you can do and I could not see at all how you could complete this level on limited moves as the tiles where not there? Then my time ran out. The voice over is extremely off putting, fine for a young child but not for seasoned adults. Some may enjoy this but I am afraid not for me.
