This is such a good 3 match I find I can't stop playing it. The torch levels are a little tricky as you don't want to get too far away so you can relight them. The graphics are beautiful, the info good and you really have to use your power-ups wisely. It pays to play in the sand ; ) I know the younger grands will like this as it is kid friendly, even for the younger ones. Two Thumbs Up!

What a totally awesome match 3 game. The unique controlling of the camera to find the trapped tablets throughout the level, and even matching 3 in the sand to uncover objects, some to help you, and some you need to progress is so much fun. There are even some levels in darkness where you have to light torches along the way to help you see where you are going. The added bonuses of collecting jigsaw pieces to make up the island and taking photos of the wildlife just add to its charm. It is a very long game too which makes it good value. Just beware of level 62 - I found this the hardest - took me several attempts to get past this level. Draw the map if it helps. Worth the 5 stars at every level.

A beautiful game, like going on an actual rainforest expedition. You are treated to colorful, tropical matching games and mini-puzzles, and discover intriguing info about the wildlife and habitat like a real explorer. But...there was a quirk of the game I just couldn't adjust to. The game board moves as you make matches. For example, as you make a match on the right side, the game board will shift that direction so that you lose sight of the far left side of the board. A match towards the bottom of the board, and it shifts down, so you lose the top of the playing area. There is no way to shift the playing board except to make a match in the opposite direction you want the playing field to go. This has nothing to do with the size of your monitor. It's just the way the game is designed. I really tried to get used to this, but I couldn't. I like to see the whole playing field in deciding which matches to make. If this unique playing approach doesn't bother you, I think you'll find the game otherwise excellent.

The scenery, sound effects and navigation are great. The timed mode (which is how I rated it, since this is the mode I played) is challenging, expecially in the torch rounds. Enjoyed the breaks with habitat animals, and views. It did take me a bit of time to buy the upgrades, as I didn't catch onto that aspect at first. Well done overall!

I'm new to the match 3 genre...I thought it sounded like the most boring idea for a game in general so I wrote off the whole thing. I'm learning how wrong I was. Paradise Quest is the best match 3 I've played yet. Not only is it a match 3 game, it's also a jigsaw puzzle game and a resource management game. And it is very educational. As you gather food, wood, and water (through the match 3 game) you earn upgrades to the land. As you improve the land, new animals move in. At the end of each match 3 game you will have collected a handful of puzzle pieces which eventually will depict a new habitat. You take pictures of the new animal arrivals for your scrapbook and each picture contains detailed information on that animal. (Great for kids!) I was initially put off by the moving game board, which moves every time you make a match. If you make a match near the center of the screen, you will barely move, and if you make a match on the outer edges you will go over that direction. After ten minutes I realized that it's a brilliant idea. It adds a touch of strategy to the game. And the match 3 game is so much fun! There are power-ups hidden everywhere and as you make matches a vine grows on the bottom of the screen. When it reaches the end, you can click on the mini map and warp immediately to that spot on the board. Which takes away the need to keep making matches in order to get somewhere. I am so happy that I found this game! I will never bad mouth match 3 games again. This game shows how addictive a well made game can be. Okay, I've spent enough time typing...I have to get back to my game!

I was happy to finally see a new match 3 game and this one doesn't disappoint. The storyline involves navigating your way around one of the Galapagos Islands to restore habitats. You can take pictures of the species your restore and solve puzzles to get to new habitats. The scenery is excellent. The pieces you match are large, which seemed to make it easier, although, I only played for the hour trial. What's different about this game is that as you're matching pieces, you're moving around a map. After about 45 minutes I came to a location where only a portion of the board was visible; lanterns had to be found and ignited to see the pieces and continue to move about the map. The game seemed fairly easy, but again, since I only played the hour trial, I'm not sure if the level of difficulty increases as the game progresses. Hopefully so. Definitely worth the hour trial - even if you don't like match 3.

I have to admit, this game kept me guessing! I found it a bit more difficult than I thought, thinking it was a cakewalk at first! The dark levels drove me mad, but after a while, I got the hang of it. Overall, not too bad.

I liked this game but couldn't finish it. I kept getting critical errors which caused me to lose all the resources I gained - ugh. I enjoyed learning about the land and animals but stopped playing after my third critical error. I would have given it more stars.

Enjoyed this game for its length and its originality. Hated to see it end.

Play the game often and I enjoy the variety of levels. It can be additive. I recommend the game highly.

An absolute "must have" for match 3 fans. This game was interesting, fun, and had great music. Your matches help to restore flora and fauna. I really liked being able to take pictures of the animals and birds you helped to attract. Lots of fun and appropriate for all ages.

I really liked playing Paradise Quest. There are numerous levels and the tiles needed to end each level are not always easy to follow. Liked being able to play without a time factor.

Have played game 3 times, then discovered you can keep playing it, but am not able to locate items or do puzzles--just accumulate points. So far am on level 230. Would like to see more verions of this game--come on, there is a whole world out there that can be explored with this game! Good game for kids to learn about the planet and their animals!

The game is great, even though labeled Match 3, it also has a jigsaw puzzle activity and a cute story line. I find it challenging and is a good replay game.

This game can be easy or challenging, whichever you prefer. If you do untimed mode, it will be undoubtedly easier. If you do timed mode, it will be more challenging. The same goes for the pace. Untimed mode is relaxing, timed mode is more fast paced. This game is maybe the best match3 game I've ever played. However, I really liked Restaurant Rush too. This one is really close though because I like animals and it offers a lot of interesting facts too about the animals.

This is the first time I've ventured into a Match 3 game and I'm glad I did. I still don't fully understand how to use the little bonus items you pick up along the way (rock slides, hurricanes, lightning, etc) but I am totally addicted to this. I like the fact that you're learning about the environments as you restore them as well as the animal life that comes back to a habitat once it's been restored. Definitely kid friendly and even though I haven't finished it yet I can believe that there's good replay value associated with this game. In fact, I liked it SO MUCH I bought it!
