Mermaid Adventures: The Frozen Time is the sequel to the match three game (Mermaid Adventures: The Magic Pearl ) we received just before Christmas. The Frozen time is also a match three game with elements of Hidden Object and other mini games such as Jig Saw puzzles (very simple ones that are ideal for young children). Unfortunately the game wasn't available directly from MyPlayCity earlier this week, so I wasn't able to check the game out until the game goes live in the morning.
I won't have time to play the game until later this afternoon due to other commitments, so my review will be posted much later today.
In the mean time you can see some images borrowed from Steam below plus a few You Tube videos of game play HERE, HERE, and HERE. There are no Steam community reviews posted for this game yet, despite having been released for almost a year.

Very sad. Level 73 is definitively the end of this game. Grap won't reach the key in the right up corner. Moved it from every direction, tried any chain combinations, bombed the key square. The grap ends up ONE square under the key square and ONE SINGLE other symbol appears instead in front.

No solutions to be find in the world-wide web. I am out.

Hi!

The game downloaded quickly on 8.1 and opened easily. I tried relaxed mode and play was fairly simple.
Its an easy relaxing game unless timed. Timed may be more interesting! The graphics are good with
easy music. I would have the levels and awards in both relaxed and advance, though different, to keep
the game more interesting. Thanks for another good game and have a great Sunday! Lee

I seem to have a problem with the last couple of downloads. If I play in full screen, the game is jumpy and distorted. I can play in reg mode with no problem except its harder to see. Any advise?

marie vela, I haven't had this problem, but have you tried changing your screen resolution?

Should be my favorite game, but I simply don't understand how to proceed.

It is an unusual chain puzzle game, also working diagonally, where to follow the symbols and marking very long chains. Very nice animation and music indeed.

Help and handling is not inuitive. Get stuck on the 7th level with the red grab now, and don't understand how to move the grab. Sometimes it follows the chains, mostly not.

Got it somehow on the key and on the chest, but then the game stopped and should be restarted again from the level beginning. Also happened that a marked, very long chain triggered a continuous loop. Game couldn't be stopped otherwise than using the Windows task manager.

Would be very happy if someone can explain how to direct this red grap correctly on the chest.

I'm on Windows 10 64-bit.

marie, I was stuck too. No directions. You have to get the key first. Then direct the crab to the chest. I just discovered that one can not only go up and down and right and left, but also diagonal. That is making thinks a lot easier. Hope this helps.

marie, the mechanics here are similar to the very popular Fishdom, if you've ever played that. This is somewhat of a clone of that game.

Reply   |   Comment by watcher13  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

marie, Sorry I missed some of your message. To move the crab, match 3 or more to move in one direction or the other on the line that the crab is in. Also, it will move if your first move is beside the crab and that can move him in a very long chain. I also discovered the bomb kills the crab.

Reply   |   Comment by Dona Witmer  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Sorry, I'm incorrect. That's a move pieces game, while this is a hold and trace over matching objects game. Though the look and pieces resemble those in Fishdom

Reply   |   Comment by watcher13  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (0)

marie, I reached level 16 without problems. The direction you move the chain adjacent to the crab moves him over, up and down or even diagonally. He needs to reach the key and chest to uncover the last squares that need to be cleared. By trial and error I figured it out. If the crab didn't activate the item, I moved him away and back to it again until it worked. Hope this help you figure it out.

I forgot to add - you have to include the pieces under the key and chest in chains to complete the level. Otherwise you'll keep making chains forever on the same level.

Reply   |   Comment by Buster  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+2)

Thank you for all the help.

Somehow I managed to move the crab (and key) when there are at least two same symbols in the horizontal or vertical direction (minimum symbols in a row should be at least 3). More a trial and error approach than a logic procedure.

Sometimes, reaching the key or chest square with the grap is successful. Mostly, one can move the grap around and around the square won't carry on the game.

Another mystery: Before finishing the puzzles, pieces left in the ribbon below the puzzle frame suddenly disappeared.

In comparison, puzzles and other games are very easy. Maybe some bugs to work on, but very nice game.

Downloaded quick. Installation a breeze on Windows 7.
I appreciate the choice of timed or untimed even though you can only earn Bronze on untimed. Graphics are colorful and bright.
I don't have much patience with match 3 to analyze and be really fast so the untimed is just a delightful occupation for however many minutes/hours I feel like relaxing and playing.
Thanks for GOTD.

For everyone who is having issues with getting a proper download link for this game, anything that is from MyPlayCity, if you can't download directly from here or via an email link that they send you, just go directly to MyPlayCity's page, search for the game via the search box at the top of the page, and download it directly. Same end result, AND no 1 day deadline to install. I get 90% of the MyPlayCity games from here that way. Got tired of having to supply an email each time, so now, if I can't download directly from here, I go right to the MPC page and get directly from them.

The game has something I did not noticed in other games.
It is allowed to make chain's diagonal:

When I click the download link, I get a 404, not found error. This is the URL:

Last time this happened, I sent an email to game giveaway, but never got a response. Can anyone help?
Thanks!

I have tried Chrome, Edge, Opera, Firefox and Vivaldi browsers ... all give the 404 error.

I have gotten a link thru email, still get the 404 error.

Any help, greatly appreciated!

wysguyeman, Here there is no problem downloading.
If you also got a link by mail, there is something strange in your Windows.
Did you try to download after an restart of Windows?
And also have a clean-up; empty %temp% etc. ?
Maybe the download-site is not reachable (files3.giveawayoftheday)
try at command-prompt: ping files3.giveawayoftheday.com
Do you get an answer or something else?
No answer -> your DNS is maybe corrupt. And try to clean this up; use the internet:

wysguyeman, your url link does not show up in your post/message, at least to me. The game is downloading as I type this; the browser I use is a copy cat of Chrome [copy cat is not the tech term for it, but that's the best word I can think of]: Iron. The reason I use Iron is that I run WinXP, which no longer supports Chrome. Try giving Iron a go: it behaves/looks *exactly* like Chrome. :)

wysguyeman, As Diana said, the link doesn't show. I don't think the site allows you to post a link.
Have you tried temporarily disabling your antivirus/firewall?
I know I have to do that when I try to install anything from here because it gets a false positive because of the themidia wrapper.

wysguyeman, try right clicking on the download button and then clicking "saved linked content" or similar on the right click menu that will come up. See if you get the same result. Make sure that any download window comes up is for a zip archive. Not a webpage. If it's a webpage, then your still having a problem.

Also, to those relunctant to turn off your anti-virus, most will allow you to make an exception just for that particular setup.exe. Then you can delete the exception after you get the game.

wysguyeman, try clearing your browser's cache and click on the link again.

Thanks for the help! Unfortunately, these did not work. I guess I'll have to skip this game.
Thanks again!
