"Despite the light-hearted script and colourful visuals, chronoSgear is a riveting and mentally challenging proposition that skilfully melds two genres into a cohesive and enjoyable experience"
~ www.pocketgamer.co.uk (Damien McFerran)
" I ABSOLUTELY ADORE THIS GAME......like seriously, I'm lovin' it (McDonalds might get mad xP). When I first saw the screenshots on TA I thought it was another match-3 game...boy was I wrong, and in a way that absolutely blew my mind. First, I love the graphics and in-game visuals. The character portraits are very well-drawn, kudos to your fabulous visual design team. The core gameplay itself is simple to grasp when playing for the first time but extremely difficult to master, which is a great thing. You have included many additional components such as a variety in unit type and class, as well as the soul cards which add another level of depth to the overall game. All in all, an outstanding SRPG in a very pretty package. "

STORY AND TWO-PLAYER MODE:
As the user progresses in story mode, both the hero and enemy’s units are unlocked and useable in two-player mode! Complete the game and unlock the final boss!
AMAZING MANGA ART GRAPHICS
Beautifully hand drawn Manga-Style cut scenes and characters portraits.
STUNNING SKILL EFFECTS FOR EACH UNITS
Visually stunning skill effects for each units which are divided into 4 distinctive classes: Core, Greater, Ultimate and Hero
CONNECT-3 BATTLE PUZZLE:
The battlefield is divided into top (Enemy) and bottom (Yours). The objective is to battle through enemy territory into the "Soul Zone." Attacking the Soul Zone weakens the enemy's soul. Users can execute basic attacks by vertically matching 3 same color Core Units. By horizontally matching 3 Core Units they can also build defensive walls against enemy attacks.
HERO AND HIS SOUL SKILLS:
Players must match any 2 identical Core Units with a Hero to form a basic Hero Unit attack. If they can match their color to a Soul Card, the Hero Units will strike fear into the hearts of the enemy with a deadly Soul SKILL Attack!
Your name is Starck, and you're a lieutenant in the powerful Amici Mafia family. You weren't born into the life, like so many other family members. The Amici took you under their wing 10 years ago; right after your mother was murdered in cold blood.
You were scared and confused, but even at that young age you were quick to learn what it took to earn the trust and respect of "The Family." Now that you've fought your way to the top, the worst has happened yet again.
General Vincenti, the Amici's long time rival and sworn enemy, has taken down your adoptive family; and now you're on a mission of revenge. This is the most important contract of your career, and if you succeed, you could very well undo the evil that has befallen your family.
You must travel back in time and assassinate Vincenti before he comes to power.
Can the time-traveled assassination be as simple as it sounds?

Difficulty needs to be balanced!
Update: * Seems like the experience earned isn't really balanced in this update. I battled an enemy quite a few lvls ahead of me but only got like one-tenth of exp needed to lvl. So even on hard enemies, it takes like 10 battles (10 min each) to lvl up. This makes the gameplay too repetitive, and will likely throw off some people as it takes too much grinding to actually get through the story. And there's nothing else to do in town.*
As others have pointed out, there are some glitches that need to be fixed. Also the bulk of the game is on grinding as the difficulty of the enemy increases unfairly. I'd rather have a shorter gameplay but actually get to go through the story without too much grinding. The grinding is a pain because there is not much to customize.
So please lower the difficulty and to compensate for the shorter gameplay, may I suggest adding ONLINE MULTIPLAYER! Online and single-device multiplayer will make people actually want to keep playing! The players can use whatever they have gotten in the story mode for multiplayer. This opens way for an update for GameCenter and retina display. I'm sure you will attract many more customers even if the sale ends!
DEVELOPERS please consider my suggestions to make this a better game so you will have more happy customers and you can make more money ^_^
Ive only played a few match three games like this, but this has got to be one of the all around puzzle games ive ever played before. Intuitive music, cools characters, unique twist on the storyline, perfect gameplay and great graphics as well. This game is a must buy for anyone who likes match 3 puzzle games!!
Great puzzle rpg
The other reviews pretty much cover it. My only major complaint is that it's a bit too short! I hope more chapters or a sequel is coming.
