Highly addictive!

This is definitely the most exciting match-3 game I've ever seen, it has good balance and makes you think and plan, I really enjoy it, the levelling and everything. Yes, you need to spend some money if you want to grow fast, but this is usual for games nowadays, so you can level up without money if you have enough time, game is not asking you to pay every time. Thanks to creators for this game, I'm hooked
