I had this game on one of my old computers. I believe it was free with advertisers. Could not remember the name. Have been looking for this game for years and FINALLY!! I found it!! I'm going to buy it this time so I will always have it! It is one of my favorite games!!!!! I love that you have to move the marbles around. There is not another game like this one for a match 3 game. It is in a category all by itself.

I sometimes get bored with 3-match games, however, this one kept my interest all the way to the end. It's an original game that starts off easy (so you can get practice). As you complete more levels, it becomes more difficult/challenging, and makes you think. I like the graphics and music. The upgrades you can get are nice, especially for the more difficult levels. The mini-games are great and are fun as well. Since it made me think so much, I think I actually added a few more brain cells for myself!

You can't know this game by playing a few levels. It gets more challenging as you play and it's one of a few games I can play over and over and still enjoy each time. Also it has a great pace. Once you get some degree of mastery over it you can pick up your speed. I love it!!

Ratings above based only on a few levels. Very good game so far, but it crashed after a couple of levels (i.e. "Pharoah's Secret has encountered a problem and needs to close.") Then I restarted and got another 2 or 3 levels before it crashed again. After the 4th crash, I gave up and uninstalled.

Very enjoyable. Easy to learn but not so easy that you get bored easily. It is what a game is meant to be; entertaining and filling up all your free time.

I have beat the game 3 times and continue to be challenged at the higher levels. I find it addicting!

I loved this game. I got tired of the match three games. There was too much mindless clicking. In this game you have to use strategy and think ahead. Using bombs to break down walls is fun. As you go along you can add more rainbow balls, bombs, and extended light. This game is a lot of fun but does get more challenging as you go along.

I was getting tired to the HOGs I was playing and this was a welcome change. Gets harder and harder. I seldom ever beat the best "ace" time but enjoyed it anyway. The only thing I didn't like was that sometimes the screen was dark and you only had limited vision. I couldn't understand why they would do that - just to make it harder? Really irratating, but the intricacy of the rest of the game made up for it. Lasted for hours, took several days to go through all the levels.

It seems a bit superfluous adding another five star review, but as they're weren't that many, I thought I'd put in my two pennerth. This is probably my all time favourite match 3 game, at least certainly in the top three. The idea is to find your way through a labyrinth to uncover keys and pieces of artifact, by unblocking the corridors of coloured stones using Match 3. The lower levels are really fairly simple and straightforward, but when you get to the higher levels it's a real challenge, as every time you make a mistake, the balls multiply until you find you're boxed into a corner and can't move. The graphics really are beautiful, and vibrant, making it a pleasure to play. A really superb Match 3 game.

I found this to be an extremely original and addictive game. Levels get more and more difficult as you play. This is not one of those easy match 3 games and you must think ahead and strategize your moves when you get to the upper levels or you simply won't make it. I just wish this game would get modernized for Windows 8. I really miss playing it on my new laptop!

Fun game and nice to have ability to replay levels and see if you can do better -- colorful and quite challenging.

I have played this game from beginning to end at least 5 or more times. It's different each time, because it would be impossibe to do it the same way twice. I really enjoy it and wish there was a Pharaoh's Secret II ! I'll be waiting for it!!

Pharaoh's Secret gives the Match-3 genre a more strategic slant as you need to think about your next move(s) to avoid new balls growing and blocking your path. I have played many Match-3 games and this one (and its twin Da Vinci's Secret) are the only ones I have bothered to play again, usually in an attempt to better my time score (that it, finish each level faster). My husband and children also enjoy pitting their skills against each other so its a game the whole family can play. I would love to see more of this type of strategic Match-3 game... bring on more Pharaoh's Secret or Da Vinci's Secret adventures!

I'm almost 58 years old, married, a full-time stay-at-home wife, mother of 17 children, and have 14 grandchildren with 3 more expected later this year. This game is NOT for me ... when it takes about 10 minutes to finish a level I quit because I have much better ways to spend my time than taking what seems to be an eternity to complete a level. After playing the first 3 levels this game became rather boring and my eyes started to get blurry ... I was making matches but not seeming to make any progress toward getting the key into the lock so after I wasted about 10 minutes of my time trying to complete this level I quit playing then I deleted this game from my computer. For me, cleaning the toilets and bathtubs in my home is more enjoyable than this game was, seriously. (I hate to clean our 3 toilets and 2 bathtubs!) I definately will NOT be purchasing this game.

I love the game, so I bought it and I can't stop playing it. Time flies and you don't even notice it. I think is very good to develop good solving techniques for children.

Not much more to add to previous positive reviews. On my second game trying to beat my previous score AND "Ace". The "powers" are definitely an assett in the upper levels. Having way too many AM "just one more".
