I really tried to like this game, 'cause it's got everything I'm looking for in a Match 3: the levels are quite difficult and once in a while the levels have a nice twist on the usual theme. I just couldn't get into it, because the instructions are so minimal that it's really hard to figure out what to do. Especially the special levels, in which you have to figure out from a small, vague picture what items you have to collect to be able to finish the level was too confusing.

I read reviews before deciding whether to download games, and this one was split between the "likes" and the "dislikes." As a free game, it was worth a try. And I find my opinion falling into both camps. The graphics and animations of the game are great, and much nicer than the preview pictures, and the matching power-ups fun and creative...(here comes a negative)...if you know what the power-ups mean. Double-clicking on a paint bucket removes all balls of that color. But there are other special balls and tiles that appear, without explanation, and you simply have to keep clicking on them (sometimes three or four times) to see what will happen. The problem with this approach is that you end up just clicking away instead of playing a game using some strategy, even if it is just a match game. The second part of the game occurs after about 5 matching games. Matching the balls earns items used in a cartoon challenge, for example to shoot cannon balls and fire at a pirate ship, or to kill soldiers at a castle using water, cannon balls, sticks, and stones (I think, the graphic was not great). Interesting idea, but there are only 5 colors of balls, and 11 kinds of weapons, such as bombs, fire, water, fish, sticks, ice, etc. No explanation, as others have noted, as to how to earn those weapons, and just a brief pictograph as to what to accomplish during that challenge. I think I finished the two challenges by dumb luck since I was just guessing. I did notice during the matching that around each weapon was a band of colored light, presumably corresponding to the matched colored balls, if that helps. So I'm on the fence on this one. It could be a fun game. But I'm in the camp that prefers a game with a good tutorial up front so I can get right to playing. I don't want to waste my time sleuthing out the rules. If that doesn't bother you, I think you'll enjoy the novel approaches and nice animations in the game. From the names in the credits, my guess is that the lack of tutorial is because none of the designers spoke English. They should have paid someone $100 to write some instruction, and maybe sold a lot more games.

This is a strange M3 game, I have to say, I liked it for all its weirdness! You match (by swapping) coloured balls, each ball represents a different power up which results in bombs etc when 4 or more balls are matched. On bonus levels you have to create items, such as wood, bombs, water etc to use in the game play at the bottom of the screen. So for making a gingerbread man, you need wood, fire and water. Each colour represents one of these items. Which I found quite fun putting all these things together and seeing little characters appear. I have to warn you, the instructions for the bonus levels are very much like Ikea instructions ~ little diagrams and you have to work out what they mean....takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do it’s fun. The graphics are nice and there are some cute characters like a little puppy that comes in and mops the floor. I think this is quite a sweet game for kids, but not too challenging for adults.

I usually like match 3 games and I might have liked this one too if there had been enough instruction. I really tried to like this game, but I only got to the ship before I was confused. No fun for me. I uninstalled it.

I usually love match 3 games as well but I found this to be beyond annoying. As mentioned when it came time to go up for battle didn't have a clue what to do. Sorry Gamehouse but I didn't like this game AT ALL.

This game is a little tough at first, but it makes you use your mind. The directions are minimal, but it is so much fun figuring things out for yourself. I like the fact that you can swith circles while the game is still moving. It lets you keep the pace up. If you want a "no brainer" find another game to play. If you like being challenged with something fresh and different, get this one.

Another boring same old match 3 game. its like having spinach three times a day for the rest of your life no variety. Is this really the best they can come up with. anyone could have made this game. Its more exciting watching grass grow.

I love this game, it is very challanging and requires a lot of study in order to achieve Gold Monkey status on each level. I am about 1/2 way through and it is getting very difficult to continue to obtain "Gold Monkey". The object is to remove the plates behind the orbs by color matches. Matching 4 gets you a token orb that when matched with 3 will get you a power up. Each match removes a plate behind it and once the plates are gone you no longer get points. Remove all the plates to finish the level. The meter to the left is elevated by continuous matching and vibrates the screen when it drops. The meter on the right goes up with every point match and you lose that progress if your match does not include a plate behind it. The art story is for the challanges. Read the story, study the objectives and then make matches to obtain the items you need to complete each objective.

i love match 3 games, and the match 3 part of this game was good-matching colored balls to break tiles-the more balls u matched in a row lead to different types of bombs/waterfalls. pretty cool. BUT...when it go to the war part of the game. i went batty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! trying to blow up a ship/defending a castle/blowing up submarines-sounds cool, but i couldn't figure out what i was doing. didn't know what each of the items u got by matching certain colored balls did. a fish/fire/h2o/clouds/spears/ice/snow-maybe if i knew what each one did, it would have been fun. i don't know. just couldn't wait to delete this game...

This game has some great ideas, but the utter lack of good directions left me virtually clueless as to how to proceed at times. Trying to figure out what I need to do next from pictures, diagrams and arrows is extremely frustrating!!!! Colorfull graphics are a plus. Don't let your kids near this one unless you are good at cryptography!

I thought this was going to be just another match 3 game but it wasn't. I had the worst time fighting the pirates! Anyway, I went back again and again till I figured it out. Now I love this game!
