This Match 3 has good and bad features. The playing field is colorful, and the graphics are fairly sharp. As you complete levels, you earn gold and fish and other valuables with which to purchase pieces of buildings, which get erected on the floor of the ocean. I started out in timed mode, but after about the first 30 or so levels, it became impossible to complete the grids within the time frame, so I switched to non-timed mode. Around Level 40, three of the items in play were silver, and it was difficult to distinguish between them. After Level 120 I began to get very bored. There was no end in sight, and as soon as one building was built, another popped up to be earned and built. But these buildings did not look like real dwellings--they looked like cartoon buildings for nothing bigger than a crab--certainly not for the inhabitants of Atlantis, which was the initial premise. I gave up after Level 140. Although the game says you can play in either swap, group of chain mode, after Level 120 I was no longer allowed to play in Swap mode but had to switch to a different playing style. I didn't stick with it long after that. Some of the levels are fairly difficult, which made game play interesting, but there is no narration of any kind, and there just didn't seem to be any point. The game is good for people of all ages, but prepare for boredom.

This game is quite relaxing (well, it allows you to choose whether you want a timed game or relaxed game). I chose the timed game and some of the levels were a bit challenging, but overall all the levels are solvable within the time limit. The art style and music is very relaxing. What i like about the game is the different modes available: regular match-3 gem-swapping gameplay, as well as others like where you click on a group of similar gems, they will all explode. Overall a great game!

This is a simple relaxing match 3. There is a timed and untimed mode, and there is swap, group and chain mode. I am playing timed swap mode, and find it pretty easy so far, I am at level 51. It plays a lot like cradle of rome, which I like, but where with cradle of rome, you got extra resources for all the time you had left in the level, with this game it pays to play bad and keep matching before clearing the board. That is the reason I gave it only 3 stars, because that is a very annoying feature to me. I am not sure if I will finish this game, but right now I am still enjoying it to some extend. So, I do recommend the game for the (to me even in timed mode) relaxing game play with different modes, but I don't recommend it if you will (like me) find the scoring system (or gathering resources) annoying when unfair.
