  1. I spent ages working on a review for today’s giveaway; partly because it’s one of my favorite match three games of this type and partly because it’s probably (IMO) one of the best giveaways we’ve had since the game giveaway went to weekends only. Unfortunately all my work is innaccessible at the moment because my main computer is recovering from a serious error at this moment and I cannot gain access to the work I did.

    All I can say at this point is go download this game and try it out for yourself. I’ll post a couple of links so that you can see the images I uploaded yesterday and one that enables you to see the game in action via a few you tube videos and one that lets you play the game for free online without having to install the game. If I manage to sort my main computer out later (without having to reinstall windows) I’ll post a full review later.

    You can see a slideshow of nearly 150 images via the following link. There will be some spoilers so increase the rate at which the images change via the slider that’s provided:

      ————————————————————


    Brief synopsis of the game:

    The game has an excellent tutorial that will walk you through all aspects of the game. There are also an abundance of tips that can be turned of via the options menu if you prefer to dicover for yourself, or increase the difficulty (There’s no actual difficulty settings though).

    The aim of the game is to restore the power of the 4 Elements which were lost when a calamity befell the magical world. To restore the 4 Elements you will need to restore the four ancient books of elemental magic, (earth, air, fire and water), Each book is divided into four cards and to recover each card you have to play through four levels making a total of 64 levels. Before you can restore each book you have to unlock it by playing a short hidden object game where you have to find parts of objects, which in turn enable you to find other objects, which then lead to the keys that unlock the magical books. At the end of each four levels you also have to play a simple spot the difference game to restore the magical cards. Once accomplished the next card becomes available.

    When you start the game for the first time you are asked to create a profile. Once this is done you are presented with the games main menu which enables you to access the options, help, scores and a view intro button (all buttons are blue), with a large green Start button and a red Exit button.

    The options menu is your usual arcade game type options with sliders to turn down the music and sound effects plus three toggles to move between full screen and windowed, (the game starts in full screen), a show hints mode and a custon cursor, plus an okay button that accepts any changes and a cancel button that reverts the settings back to default.

    The help section walks you through all aspects of the game via four pages, a score button lists the top ten players and a view intro button that gives you the background story. When you start the game for the first time this intro will start but it can be skipped at any time by clicking on the skip button.

    You’ll find four rechargable power-ups (that are introduced as you progress through the game. The reshuffle power-up is the last to be unlocked); each power-up is re-charged by a specific set of tiles for example the spade power-up is recharged by creating several matches of green tiles:

    1) … The spade power up which can be used to clear any single tile (except for frozen tiles),

    2) … The swap power-up that enables you to swap any two tiles on the game board

    3) … The bomb power-up that clears several tiles from around the selected tile

    4) … The re-shuffle power-up that will totally reshuffle the complete level.

    The game field also contains extra components, some of which hinder you like the boulders, ice and stone slabs. All of these obstacles can be removed via various means such as creating an explosion by selecting a long chain of tiles, the longer the chain the larger the explosion, or by another compnent called a flaming arrow which are activated by exposing them to the energy flow that is released when you clear a path to the altar. When the green energy touches a flaming arrow, all tiles that are in the direction the arrow is facing will be destroyed. There are three different arrow types a 2-way, a 4-way and an 8-way arrow.

    Conclusion:

    In my opinion this is an excellent match three game, with a different approach to your Jewel Quests and Treasures of Montezuma games. It’s well worth a good 8 out of 10 IMO.

    If you want more match three games you’ll find almost 50 free games over at MyPlayCity and some more at Gametop:

    For those who have never downloaded games from sites like MyPlayCity, do make sure any checkboxes that ask for tool bars to be installed or home pages changed are unchecked. That sdaid MyPlayCity seems to have removed those irritations from the installation wizards of most games, wheras Gametop has become worse. Also when you shut the games down your browser will be opened to the home page of the respective site. this is totally innocuous and closing the page ends the connection. There are tutorials elsewhere on this site posted by community members (GMMan) that enable to to circumvent the latter.

    p.s

    if I manage to recover my main computer I’ll post the full review later, but at the moment it’s not looking likely. :(

    p.p.s.

    I don’t know why this is called the ‘PREMIUM’ edition. It seems exactly the same as my Big Fish version which I purchased when the game was first released.
