Summary: Terrific game to play while on hold or in a waiting room. Some levels are fairly simple, others took me four tries. You don't "lose lives" when time runs out and replaying a level is easier each time because you know specifically what each special item will change on the match three board so you can strategize more effectively. The residents of Athens are entertaining and the city is colorful as you use earned gold to rebuild it.
Summary: Heroes of Hellas 2 and 3 both have building a city as part of the game. The points you earn on the match 3 you use to buy buildings. That's why this is 4 stars. First Heroes is just match 3 with more complexity as you go. That I gave 5 stars.
