3 of a kind game but still exciting
on 26 July 2011
I do love these 3 of a kind games and after playing Cradle of Rome and Egypt I was concerned that this game would get a bit 'samey' for me, but this one has a different twist. You still match 3 of a kind obviously, but once you get your bonus help icons - and these come quite easily, you can keep using them as they fill up if you overfill your gauges. You have 3 tubes on the top screen which fill up as you match the icons, if you manage to fill these past the fill line, you gain a star which fills up your icon meter which then allows you to use them more often. When you complete a level, all your bonus icons are refilled too. You still need to change some blue squares to gold and some times they have moss growing on them so need to be 'freed' before you can move them.
The graphics are a little childish, compared to Crade, but I am 60!!
I don't think this game is as challenging as the Cradle games, but still compulsive, and sometimes I just need a game which is a bit easier and less stressful to do.
If you like 3 of a kind, then this game is definitely worth a try.
