Overall Impression: a fun, non-traditional Match 3 game. This is easily my favorite Match 3 game of all time. The underlying story could have been better, but it wasn't horrible. And it did provide you a reason for linking up all those spheres. Pros: -- The colors are bright and inviting. --- It's non-traditional approach to the genre is a definite plus in my book. Rather than just switching neighboring items to make a match, you draw lines between different-colored spheres - sometimes from one side of the board to the other. It's fun to see how many of the spheres you can include in one chain. --- A nice variety of bonuses and talismans to help you along the way. Some were more of a help than others, depending on the goals and the setting you were dealing with. The ability to restart the level and change out the bonuses and talismans if you wanted was a very helpful option. Cons: --- There were times when the characters seemed to run short on quests for you to do. You did have the option of just playing some levels for cash while you waited for a quest to materialize so it wasn't a total waste of time, but those levels usually weren't as interesting as the quest ones were. --- If you wanted to skip a level but didn't have the required resources to do so, you were stuck.

until a certain point and then the game turned POINTLESS! More aggravating then anything! You play and play and play AND PLAY! What is the point? A sore wrist? Stupid game!

The original Dreamsdwell is one of my favourite games and I've played it through more times than I can remember. It's charm is that it's very relaxing to play and great to unwind with after a hard day at work. I was really thrilled to see a sequel. This time around you can choose a character (well between a boy and a girl) and the game play is more or less the same as the first one. BUT, the graphics are dreadful. They are so overwhelming and confusing that it makes the game almost impossible to play, at least for me. Other players might like them, but I certainly don't. The backgrounds would be alright on their own, but with the spheres on top it's like an explosion in a paint factory. Some levels are better than others, but none of them are good. Even with the brightness turned down, they were still painful on the eyes. The spheres are far too large and transparent for the backgrounds. Why on earth didn't they stick to the original style graphics which were wonderful? The sad thing is, that the new features and tasks are really pretty good, and if they had stuck to the original graphics this would have been a five star game. It's very sad, because I am not even sure I can play this one through, and if I manage to stand the eyestrain, I won't be playing it again. I really am disappointed.

I didn't play this game for very long. I couldn't stand the small scale graphics, and after a little over an hour, I removed it. I didn't play the original, thus no comparison. Glad I have Funpass, so I didn't have to keep it.

I dont like the village building. The graphics are quite small and tedious to play. But the section where you click on the spheres is very entertaining and can get complex. I would not buy it but as a daily free game it has it's value.

i liked this game. i only played for the hr trial so maybe i missed the things the previous reviewers talked about. i liked that i could make extra money by completing tasks other than the main objective. i liked seeing the village come to life. and, i love match 3 games-this is different, but very enjoyable.

I'm usually not too into match 3, but this one was good. It was good to have a bit of a design change from the normal match 3 game. It had a little innovation, where you connected the spheres, this set up is different from the traditional board, and swap type. Still after playing it a couple hours I got kind of bored of it. The power ups were real lame and useless. That's one of the biggest improvements I could see done with this game. Very nice though to not have this stupid time pressure timer that a lot of games have. If you like match 3 games then definitely give this one a try, but I'd try it before putting money into it first. Over all this one's OK though.
