This game is ok - if you like matching 3 ad infenitum. How to get to the next level - that's the question i kept asking myself as i matched 3 and matched 4 time and time again. It seems never to go anywhere. Certainly this game is in need of more development. The matching goes on and on. There doesn't seem to be any progress - if you only take this as a free game, ok, but it would be a waste to purchase. Three players in this household, all gave up and voted to "delete". Sorry, this one's just not all there. It gets one star simply because we can't give zero stars!

I like this a lot. It requires a bit of thought as you balance energy, progress, and skills, and the resources for all three. It starts easy and gets rather hard. Level 2.4 was tough as some reviewers have noted; but it was easy compared to 4.4 and 4.5 - and now the game has just warned me that it's going to get harder! Basically it's Match-3 where you have to collect N of a certain tile to advance to the next level. But you have a limited amount of energy, and every move costs you energy unless you match four or more. There are also resources you can match N of to get an energy boost. Also, every match gives you skill points, which activate a set of skills (varying with level) that afford wild-cards, clearances and such like. So you have to keep your eye on all three things (and progress and energy resources may require a certain number of different resource types). Sometimes you have to plan ahead to utilise energy resources which the map shows you will be on the next level. One of the best things about it is that it is a challenging Match-3 that doesn't depend at all on the clock. At the same time it is not Chess, i.e. it is not really so much about predicting cascades of matches as it is about balancing resources. Recommended to all who like a thinky game.

World Adventure is a fun game. I played it in Relaxed Mode and found it quite challenging. In Relaxed mode you are given a certain number of moves (energy) to get to the end of the level. By gathering resources you get additional moves. You also get skill points with 4 matches and higher. As the game progresses the challenges get harder as you have to keep enough resources and/or skills to get you to the end. This game is very strategic and I don't know if children would be able to understand the concept. I know that as an adult it took me several levels to get the idea, but then I was hooked.

Good game for younger kids. This game plays as a typical match-3, with an interesting story. The actual board is very small in piece-size, so moves are limited. The board matches refill at a very quick rate, while removing even more new matches from the drops - you do not need skills, the levels end quickly. Overall, I only rated a one-star as for younger kids playing. As an adult, I did not play past level two.

I really don't understand the negative reviews for this game. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a different twist on the Match-3 formula; one that requires some thinking. It was quite addictive and I never got tired of playing it, which is more than I can say for many other games. I did not find the 'game played itself' as one reviewer posted. In the very beginning, there were a couple of screens where that happened, but that was all. And, yes, the area into which the tiles fall is often smaller than other Match-3 games, but that fits in with this original format. I recommend this game. Good value.

Yes, the game starts out easy, like every game that Gamehouse sells. However, it gets hard - I can't get past the eighth artifact. You can take all the time in the world to plan your moves, but your moves are limited. Each level has different powerups that are vital to gameplay, so each screen feels like a completely different game. I was loving this game until it finally got too hard to beat. It's not like an adventure game where a walkthrough can get you the tough parts - you either know how to plan your moves to get the 4-in-a-rows that you need to keep going, or you don't.

The grids in which you match 3 are fairly small. You click to make a match and as other tiles drop, they match themselves so fast that each level is over within 2 minutes after it started. It was like the game was playing by itself. I stopped 25 minutes into the hour since I felt like I was wasting time - not enjoying a game!

I do not understand those saying it was too easy-yes it did start out easy but I have now been stuck on level 2.4 for quite awhile. You have to carefully plan to get through some of the higher levels to make sure you don't run out of energy.

The artwork is nice, the music is not annoying, and the set-up is a little different (limited energy, etc) but in the end this game is just blah. There was no challenge. You have to match 4 instead of 3 to save energy, which SOUNDS more challenging, but the game seems to make sure that you have plenty of match-4s coming to you, so it ends up being far too easy. I'll save it for my kids to play, or for me in those moments when I'm looking for something mindless to do for a few minutes (like when I'm sitting around waiting for water to boil).
