Alchemist's Apprentice is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Cons and Pros The story line is so-so but the graphics are good and the music not too annoying. The thing I dislike to the point of despising is that each level is timed but sometimes halfway through the level (generally after I have just decided on my next couple of moves) a Bonus Game pops over the screen and the level I was on can no longer be seen. What's worse is that the Bonus Game is always the same--a leprechaun carrying a basket is under a tree and branches, leaves, and nuts are falling from the tree that he must run to catch to get bonus points. I find this extremely distracting and aggravating. When the Bonus Game is over, you are taken back to the level you were working on. If the developers ditched the leprechaun and interrupting the level, I would have given this game at least 4 stars. As it is, I cannot recommend the game due to the annoying Bonus Games and lack of casual play-ability.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty but unexciting I purchased this game because I enjoyed the demo but, after playing it for awhile, the charm wore off. Overall gameplay is typical match 3 with essentially no innovation, although the graphics are pretty. The biggest issue for me is that the scoring system is essentially meaningless. There is no high score to beat, there are no stars to earn, and there is no easy way compare your level scores to see if you're improving. The timer moves so slowly that finishing a level in time is not a challenge at all. Gold, which is supposed to be the big collectible reward in this game, is too easy to obtain to make it very rewarding to collect it. You use gold to upgrade buildings but, due to the ease of collecting gold, upgrading buildings isn't very exciting. This is especially true because upgrades don't really change the appearance of the buildings very much. There is a mini-game involving a leprechaun that pops up in the middle of almost every match 3 board. This was amusing and funny the first few times, but it got old pretty quickly. There is no true HO component. Instead, every once in awhile, you're presented with a find-it that involves finding multiple instances of a particular type of object. These are so poorly hidden that the exercise is boring. The last non-match 3 component involves clicking or not clicking on falling tokens depending on their color. I found this element of the game boring as well. While this isn't a truly bad game, it just isn't a very good one either. I would only recommend it for a hardcore match 3 fan who is having trouble finding a new match 3 game to buy.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from More match 3 than HO I am more partial to HO games than match 3 although there are some match 3 I play over and over. But this wouldn't be one of them. I didn't find it challenging enough and there wasn't enough HOs to stay my interest throughout. The graphics were very nice; pleasing to the eye to play. I would recommend this game to Match 3 lovers but probably not HO lovers.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from alchemist's apprentice Unable to get past level 1, section [or whatever] 9. Have gone through it at least 6 times and always run out of time. Not interested in spending the rest of my life trying to get to section 10! And the "leprechaun" running around catching coins is stupid. You guys have some really amazing games; this isn't one of them. The really beautiful graphics helped for a while, but not forever.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mouse Disappears Can't even try this game as my mouse disappears. I tried turning mouse tails off but I don't even see it in my settings so this is just a waste of money. Many people have the same proble..
