This Match 3 has good and bad features. The playing field is colorful, and the graphics are fairly sharp. As you complete levels, you earn gold and fish and other valuables with which to purchase pieces of buildings, which get erected on the floor of the ocean. I started out in timed mode, but after about the first 30 or so levels, it became impossible to complete the grids within the time frame, so I switched to non-timed mode. Around Level 40, three of the items in play were silver, and it was difficult to distinguish between them. After Level 120 I began to get very bored. There was no end in sight, and as soon as one building was built, another popped up to be earned and built. But these buildings did not look like real dwellings--they looked like cartoon buildings for nothing bigger than a crab--certainly not for the inhabitants of Atlantis, which was the initial premise. I gave up after Level 140. Although the game says you can play in either swap, group of chain mode, after Level 120 I was no longer allowed to play in Swap mode but had to switch to a different playing style. I didn't stick with it long after that. Some of the levels are fairly difficult, which made game play interesting, but there is no narration of any kind, and there just didn't seem to be any point. The game is good for people of all ages, but prepare for boredom.
