Love the graphics and smooth dropping action. Also love the several varieties of modes of play. Wish list for future editions: make "continuous" actually continue! (Currently it gets to "stage complete" with no explanation of why or what "stage" you're on); an explanation of scoring (seems more valuable to get 4-in-a-row than "L-shape" or "T-shape" but I can't tell. Similarly are different power jewels more or less valuable?); ability to combine power jewels of various colors for different effects. Super fun way to pass the time. Thank you! P.S. You spelled "marvellous" wrong (drop an L and I won't wince every time I make a great move!


I don't really write reviews for games, unless I'm forced to in order to progress or gain points. But I really love this one so much I had to write one.

I've played a lot of match-3 games, and this is by far, my favorite. It's just so soothing. I love the music and the effects. There are no obnoxious sounds, aside from that deep voice. And I love the different modes that are offered. I love how I don't have to spend money to progress. I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 because it does need some minor changes.

I noticed you haven't updated this game since last year, so please do! I agree with some reviews that the "ceaseless mode" should truly be ceaseless without having the "stage complete." And yes, you did spelt "marvelous" wrong, and it does make me cringe. An explanation of the scoring would also be hopeful. I could do without the deep voice, but I'm just being picky :)

Overall, a wonderful and marvelous match-3 game.


I find this game relaxing, compelling and highly thought provoking. Love it!!
Can you tone down the duration of the words? They block the board as I am trying to continue to make matches. It does happen to freeze a lot though. Deleting and reinstalling doesn't help.
