Summary: There are MANY differences with Cradle of Egypt, the first being an untimed mode. This will be a definite hit with many Match 3 fans. It doesn't make the game itself any easier, but it does remove the stress.
Summary: This game has a new element not found in Cradle of Rome 1 or 2 that totally changes the way you play the game. For that reason alone, it gets five stars. Yes, it's very similar to Cradle of Rome but again, because of that element, the way I play has totally changed.
Summary: The ability to play in untimed mode makes this a very beautiful, relaxing game! The graphics are stunning, to say the least. But if you like the challenge, play in timed mode and collect fun trophies!
