I had high hopes for this game, being that I can't seem to find a match three game that can keep my attention for very long these days. At first, the game was fun, challenging and I enjoyed both the mechanics and vibrant colors of each level. Now, I'm not blind to the fact that the further you progress, the more challenging the levels will be come. That being said, most of the levels after the three hundred range become based on nothing more than luck. Even with power ups and using extra moves, the goals are unattainable. Each level will require roughly 15 tries before suddenly, the level will magically produce a bevy of combos and power ups in order for you to finally beat the stage. I get it, that's the business model; force a person to use all five lives, then pop up an advertisement that is a "limited offer" to buy extra lives. Fortunately, you can just play a modded version and bypass the need for lives altogether, but again, I held out hope that this game wouldn't force me to do this. However, enter Medusa's world. This is where the developer decided to ditch any originality and copy the worst mechanic of the entire match three genre; the tiles that continually overtake random tiles. What a shame. The game was already hard enough, with less than a 25% chance of passing a level within five tries, then you toss in a gimmick designed to make levels insanely hard and try to entice players to spend money on lives and power ups. Bummer. Oh well, gotta make that money I suppose, but not from this guy. I will say I enjoyed the game up until that point, despite the terrible odds of beating a stage, but I won't be sticking around to try and beat levels that have single digit percentages to win from here on out.

I love this game, been playing it for 3 years. Now, it has so many ads, it doesn't let you start. The ad stays on the page. Considering uninstalling!Was 5 until all the ads!
