I am really enjoying this game

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a unique story to go along with their match 3 puzzles. I haven’t had any technical issues with this game, but I have a couple of other minor gripes.

1. There is a cutscene that explains the premise of the game, but it’s hidden within the clip menu. It seems like it should play at the very start of the game, but hasn’t played for both my wife and I. I think it provides too strong of an introduction to be missed.

2. The tile boards are too large. Trying to make a match near the edge often results in me opening edge menus. At first I thought I was just fat fingering, but then I learned that others are having the same issue. Just a few pixels from the top and bottom would do.

3. I like the idea of bonus/ extra ways to improve your landscape and get costumes, however, I don’t like that getting bonus uses the same keys that are used to progress the game. There should be a different currency entirely because using resources on these items halts the gameplay and story progression. Main missions are getting more and more expensive, I’m not going to spend those hard earned keys on a costume.

Lastly, the box to ask what I would like to change about the game came way too soon. I hadn’t even gotten my barring yet, I was not in a place to make a suggestion like that.

The soundtrack is a bit weak and repetitive. But, overall, loving this game. Keep it up!

Loving the game, but a little frustrated

I love the puzzles, but the story line is a bit boring- there’s a huge island covered by clouds, but instead of being able to see more of the island, they just keep adding random characters doing pointless things in one or two areas. I mean, what is the purpose of those talking flowers? They have a lot of dialogue but don’t do anything. Also, I go to unlock more story line with my wins from the puzzles and it says come back later for more story, as it is being added?? So once I get to a certain level i have to stop playing now until they add more storyline? It was in the middle of a story about a fox and now they just tell me to check back for updates?? I’ve spent $40 or so in the last couple of months for boosters mainly because I think the developers should get some money for such a quality game, but now I feel a little cheated. If I had known it was an unfinished story line I wouldn’t have spent so much.

Love it!

I really love playing this game and the graphics are awesome! I love how the animals “talk” to you when you tap them, the water splashes, the plants move, the little turtle goes into his shell, etc. It’s also cool to move around the scenery. There’s a whirlpool out in the ocean, the volcano from the story is out there, too and you can see part of a snowy land, it’s all very clever and mysterious. 😊 Plus, the game play is challenging, but fun. I think it’s great!

The only suggestion I would have is to make the outfits and other decorations that aren’t part of the storyline available in a different way than using the keys that you have earned. It’s hard to part with the keys when you need them to progress the story.
