Loving this game! Sound and 3D graphics are awesome! Similarities to Bejeweled are evident but the 3D graphics/explosions and rotating cube set it apart! Well worth the money! Well done!
Two things I would love to see:
1. The game is so filled with impressive audiovisuals so when it finally ends and you get the "game over" screen in silence it's kind of a letdown. Maybe there could at least be some sort of music or announcer cue at the game over part. When you've just played your best game ever and it just ends abruptly it just seems to be lacking something.
2. It would be great to have a high score system that shows how well you's done on the game. I know it has Game Center enabled, but I can't remember (or find) what scores levels I achieved two weeks ago.
Great new match 3, but crashing and performance issues
Every time i complete arcade mode, and sometimes in the middle, it crashes. Seems, to save high score though. Also, generally poor performance and slowdown on Ipad 1.
On the plus side, feels great to have a new take on match 3. Suffers from the same problem most match 3's have, namely that you can't shift tiles in the middle of a combo. But still, this is the best new match 3 i've played in a very long time. Just fix the performance issues and you've got a new classic.
Some serious flaws
I love this game, but there are some issues that are killing me. You lose your progress if you have to switch out for any reason. Boo! Also, it is doing something to mess up the screen and the problem carries into other applications. Distortions appear and the display doesn't paint properly. You have to reboot. It has been a long time since an update. Have the developers abandoned the game? Their Facebook page also doesn't acknowledge any issues and if or when they will be addressed.
