Curious James wanders away from his tour group as they explore the catacombs below Rome. At first, it seems like he’s on his own special adventure, but then he realizes that he’s lost and alone. Just when his detour couldn’t get any worse, it does! A pesky monkey rips up his map and leads him ever deeper into the depths of the caverns. James has to puzzle his way through 30 levels to recover and reassemble all 30 pieces of the map. But that’s not all – once he reaches the surface, he discovers that his tour group is missing. Using the sketch on the back of the map, he has to puzzle through more exciting levels set in the ruins aboveground to get back to his group. Lucky for you, and James, the unique match-3 game system means the solution is always waiting for you!

Stones of Rome is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Stones of Rome I played this in the past and I played it now but not one of the best matching games I have played but it was OK because it was too confusing for me

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ultimately not for me Pros: Untimed, interesting concept Cons: Clunky interface, graphics, gets crazy hard This is an interesting fusion of match 3 and puzzle gaming. There is no real storyline to the game, just game boards to focus on. You have to clear out the pieces in the center of the board by placing like colored pieces from any of the four sides so that groups of 3 match up. All the pieces in the center, including those that the player places, must be cleared out to win. Pieces on the sides can only be placed in the center if they have somewhere to stop (you cannot fire a piece all the way across the middle section). Levels get more challenging by the addition of more colors, uneven color distribution on the four sides, and stone pots blocking off spaces. No timer, and it pays to take your time planning out moves. Cascades can help greatly or be a pain. In the first 30 boards you are trying to rebuild a torn up map to find your way out of the museum. Don't worry, that's not the end of the game. Once the map is completed there is at least one more pathway on the back of the map you have to get through. The graphics are simplistic and so is the soundtrack, which I decided to turn off after a few boards. The game interface could have been better designed. I noticed that switching to windowed mode caused an entirely new game/player profile to be created, and the music couldn't be turned off without turning off *all* the sound. There is a choice to restart the board should you wish to, but it will then ask you if you want to "quit", which is confusing. You cannot pause the game or save a board in progress for later...exiting out of a board just causes it to reset to the beginning layout. There appears to be a skip board button in the menu options, but I did not try that out. M3s don't usually overwhelm me, but this one is an exception. This started out fun and challenging, but by the time I got to the back of the map, the levels were so difficult that it took 3-4 hours to solve just one board, and I'm going to move on to something else and chalk this one up to a "live and learn" thing. Would definitely caution players to try this before you buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ok didn't quite get it Didn't understand how the storyline paralleled with what you had to accomplish on each level. Understand that I had to find the pieces of the map (30 level?!?) that some monkey you never see ripped up - but how putting that map together through 30 levels is NOT a match 3 game-at least not in any sense that I've ever seen. Way too hard for this Glam-ma and would only recommend to experts who care for boring genres.
