Very good game I'm playing quest mode, Lots of interesting levels with lots of mystery and I can't fail-no timer in quest mode, I hate it when I can't win/finish a game. I like match 3 games anymore they're mixed Sim, I don't like Sim (build) games. Give me jewels, coins, gold, points and awards, even more earned/unlocked levels over a Sim game. I rate this game 5 stars for intriguing!

I reviewed Hexus by mistake. That game is not nearly as good as this one. This is the reveiw I meant for this game: "I don't give good points unless I like a game, and I like this one. I don't usually follow the story line, I just like to play, but this one is intriguing. As to replay, I'll know the story, but as a match 3 game it should continue to provide a lot of fun. Sound is a little glitchy. I wonder if we say something on the support page, do the developers ever go fix it? And do they notify purchasers so we can redownload the fixed one? I gave it a relaxed instead of fast paced because that's the way I prefer to play."

I love playing this match 3. Very addictive, been playing it for hours (or so my husband says). Very similar to Paradise Quest. Definitely a keeper and one I highly recommend. Enjoy!

this game reminds me of Aladdin's Lamp. FUN. as u match 3 or more the board moves. u do have a miniature map that shows where on the board certain elements are located. u also have a meter that shows u the percentage of your goal u have obtained. the upgrades are helpful-a whip/dinomite/a spyglass. the graphics are very nice. all in all a good match 3 game.

The movement of the board makes this game a lot more interesting. Finding your way back to the door with a key to move on to the next level. Acquiring a map to find your way around are all elements that make this games appealing to me. It's not just click, click, click.

I loved this game. I will play it again soon. Very addictive. Love the way the whole screen moves. The night scenes were the hardest.

Uncovering useful objects a nice touch. First half advances nicely, but then the game plateaus and becomes repetitious without getting much more challenging.

Loved this game - completed it in a week, playing only about an hour or two per day. This is one I will play over & over. The puzzles & challenges are not too difficult to figure out which helps to move the game along at a reasonable pace.

on a Match 3 - rather liked this one and I like M3 - the trick is to make matches in the direction you are trying to clear the board - you have to clear sand pits , retrieve a raft and find the key to put in the exit square not as easy as it sounds - the puzzles are large (fun!) and you must search for the sand pits, the raft and key - in order to do that you must make matches in the direction you want to travel - I enjoyed this new twist on a favorite!

Finally a Match 3 that involves something challenging. Love having the board moving around my screen. What an exciting innovation to Match 3!!!

This game has great colors, nice pictures, challenging pathways and screens and can be addictive, especially if I am having problems completing a level. I had a hard time getting to know what the helping aids did, but I finally caught on and am having fun working the maps.

game is entertaining, but did not have enough levels.

The "claim to fame" for this match 3 game is a floating board that you can't see in its entirety. You have to keep making matches around the edges of the board to "steer" it so you can explore the entire surface and find the artifacts and exit key for the door. I gave it a good effort, but I just find this an annoying way to play. You can't use the usual matching strategies because you can't see the whole board (if you use strategies). This may be a fresh challenge to some, but it just didn't click with me. Can't complain about the graphics, although the matching aspect was pretty routine. Unfortunately, nothing here to keep me playing past the trial.

This is a great twist on Match3. I played in timed mode and though challenging, it is do-able and not frustrating. I recommend this to anyone who likes Match3 but want something a bit different.
