This is not a typical match 3 game, so you may enjoy the novelty...or not. There is a strong storyline that involves traveling around the world. Each destination is determined from a set of four clues, three of which involve solving an unusual variation on a match 3 puzzle. In one game, some of the match 3 tiles have letters, which when matched, form a phrase/clue about the next country on your flight plan. A second game involves beads on a grid. As you match the beads, you are cutting out pieces of paper to reveal a picture underneath, which is also a clue to your destination. The third game involves rotating groups of three bubbles to match adjacent groups. This can get tricky because unfortunately your scores are superimposed over the game grid as you make matches, making it hard to see sometimes. The game has beautiful graphics and an intriguing story, but I got quickly got bored with the matching games. They just weren't my style, but maybe they'll appeal to you. Kudos to the game designers for trying to create something different. Be sure to go through the narration and tutorial at the beginning so you know what's going on and how to play the games. Some interesting mini-games are included.
