Editors’ Notes

With its variety of match-three gameplay types folded together like an origami samurai, this gorgeous puzzler enthralls us just like the movie that inspired it. Pulling off a massive chain-reaction combo or vanquishing an enemy with our team of paper companions is endlessly satisfying. We even find ourselves cranking up the music, just to head-bob along to Kubo’s fast-fingered shamisen stylings.


Laggy as of Oct 6

I am a person that won the final weekly prize back in September - I love this game to idle time away and it was fun collecting origami creatures.
I had an issue where a $9.99 special package never made it to me and the customer support was quick to respond and correctly compensate me with the items. Major plus having the social aspect to quickly contact and make friends through.
However, I purchased an iPhone 8+ October 5th and updated to the 11.0.2 software required on setup. Opening the game is a pure lagfest. Animations simply don’t move correctly anymore, playing the game is awful since the explosion effects and special effects as well as audio is all lagging horribly. I closed all background apps and restarted the phone with no change. I really love this game and desperately hope this is resolved with a patch!


A "tactical" Bejeweled?

I wrote a review ages ago about this game appearing to be just another Bejeweled game. Well, it gets more tactical than that because you really have to pay attention to where you match the icons.

I've managed to get to level 80 and spent only $4.99 so far. The biggest problem going on now is the makers refusal to answer about the stalls and freezes occurring. They mostly happen just before you're completing a board, and then you lose any gains and rewards.
It's September 2017 now and I haven't been able to play in more than two weeks. Ever since Easter when Fifth Journey tried to "cash in" by inserting addons for "specials". Well, it got real buggy and has been that way since. Now it seems they've abandoned the game. At any rate, it was a good game, but Fifth Journeys quest for $$$ hurt more than helped those of us who played.
