Summary: I played this game to the end and I liked it. But I was disappointed as well, for when I started the story presented to me and the temples I heard about promised more. The match-3 part was not bad, just on the easy side. Even without the use of power ups most board could be finished without much ado. The HOG's are a different story. There are just a few of them compared to the number of match-3 boards and they come in two flavours.
Summary: Played it online at BFG. Has wonderful feature where cursor changes when it's over a piece of a fractured object. I wish all FO games had this - I generally hate finding the pieces. Certainly the match-3 are rather ho-hum but not bad if you feel like doing that for a while. The story is OK.
Summary: I enjoyed this game. Well it's a match-3 game with a bit of hidden object thrown in. What more can we expect from a match-3 game? Nice graphics, music and sound. I like the effects and animation too, pretty cool. There are three types of match-3 games to choose from and several board combination to mix and match. I prefer the square tiles swapping mode. The hidden object part of the game is ok. Some items are really hard to find but it didn't matter.
Summary: I luv this game. but it would of been nice to say point value of each object and if lose points by using a power up or gain points. Also the mask when they are used with a match the color determines if its times 2or more.
Summary: I played this game as a Beta test and loved the graphics and gameplay, although it was fairly easy. I Hadn't realised it was also a match 3. game .Although I have enjoyed some match 3 games, I found this game as a whole became very monotonous, and decided I wouldn't be buying it.
Summary: I enjoy the mix of HOG with Match 3 games. This is similar to The 4 Elements. So far have just played the demo, but think I might buy it. I like that you can choose the board style and have the option of the 3 different game play styles - group, swap or chains - but I would also like to have an option to let the game mix it up as it does the boards. Lost in the Reefs is like this, too, and I have the same feeling about that one.
Summary: Count me in with those who liked the game. Yes, it's fairly easy (I like that you can change the configurations of the match-3 portions), and I like the HO portions. I like these "find the pieces and place them in the picture" kinds of HOs. I always like to have a game that I can return to for pure relaxation - not having to think much about it, and this is one of those. It'll stay in my BF Game Manager for quite some time.
Summary: A rather different type of "hybrid" game; match-3 meets HO. It allows the player to select a combination of factors for the match-3 parts. You can choose what format the board will have: squares, hexagons (If I remember correctly), or a combination. It also gives the player the choice of the type of actual play: swap, chain, or "blocks". These are really nice features, because it permits customization; and the combination of formats can be changed at each level.
