I liked this game until they started bringing out special pieces that when broken would put pieces you had previously cleared back on the board. Alot of times the game will do the work for you through chains but sometimes these chains will burn you. I found it to be a somewhat difficult game due to those special pieces, but I also found the game to be quite repetitive. I know it is a match-3 game and they can get repetitive, but I found this game to be extra repetitive. It's a hit-or-miss title I think; you'll either really like it or you won't. I, myself, do not like having my hard work undone by some gimmick. And these special pieces are all over the place, making it quite hard sometimes to clear a board in the 10-minute time limit. For the most part, I like match-3 games, but this one didn't do it for me. It's okay as a FunPass freebie, but I wouldn't buy it.

I started this game expecting it to be just an average match 3 game. But I found it surprisingly addictive. You get to choose between two games: clicking on a group of matched tiles, or the traditional swap two tiles. What I found really nice is that at the end of each level, you are taken back to the screen where you can choose which kind of game to play. So I alternated between the two choices and found that a lot more entertaining than playing the same kind of game level after level. Also, each kind of game has its own special power-ups: I got a kick out of watching the fist that knocks out nine tiles with one punch. Well-done graphics and animations. No help menu, but instructions are provided each level as needed, although the game does assume some previous experience with matching games. Not everything is explained, like how and why you win stars. But when you accumulate five, you can play a bonus game (see screenshot) where you plug shapes into rotating wheels. Simple, but entertaining, just like the hangman mini-games. I almost took off a star for the annoying clinking sound the icons make during matching, but overall, this is an entertaining matching game.
