I found this to be an OK game as I played 14 levels of this. The graphics are really nice and colorful in my opinion and the people were cute watching them work and build up the town so kudos to the creators here. ; ) What you are doing in this game is making matches which can be done in three different ways and you can also switch by clicking at the bottom of the match 3 board as you will see 3 "buttons" at any time during the game: swap, chain, and group mode. You can also play this in untimed or timed mode. I played it in timed which I usually do for match 3 games and never felt any pressure running out of time to complete the levels. After each level you can either do a bonus mini game to earn more money which is getting the key to the lock to unlock and you have to "rotate" the board in order to get the key there OR if you have enough money, you can make a purchase to build up your town and/or go on to the next level. Just like other match 3 games there's also obstacles put in your way such as the chain tiles just to name one. There's also power ups that will help you along in the game. I must say what I didn't understand when I first started playing this was the purpose behind the red dotted lines in the regular match 3 board. Instructions said, clearing blocks will bring the key to the lock, and the board can be rotated to accomplish it. Well, I didn't see any key or lock so that drove me nuts but the game seemed to let me complete the level then when I played the bonus game then the light bulb came on so to speak. That's where the key and lock is and where you "rotate the board" and the purpose of the red dotted lines NOT the regular playing board so that was somewhat misleading. LOL! I give this 3 stars overall. I took 1 star away for the misleading instructions I mentioned and another star because I thought there could of been more variety in the mini games other than getting the key to the lock cause well 14 levels of that was more than enough for me. Could of thrown in a jig saw puzzle or SOMETHING! So give this game a whirl and decide for yourself. I hope you enjoy the game.
