I am really enjoying this game

I would recommend this game to anyone who likes a unique story to go along with their match 3 puzzles. I haven’t had any technical issues with this game, but I have a couple of other minor gripes.

1. There is a cutscene that explains the premise of the game, but it’s hidden within the clip menu. It seems like it should play at the very start of the game, but hasn’t played for both my wife and I. I think it provides too strong of an introduction to be missed.

2. The tile boards are too large. Trying to make a match near the edge often results in me opening edge menus. At first I thought I was just fat fingering, but then I learned that others are having the same issue. Just a few pixels from the top and bottom would do.

3. I like the idea of bonus/ extra ways to improve your landscape and get costumes, however, I don’t like that getting bonus uses the same keys that are used to progress the game. There should be a different currency entirely because using resources on these items halts the gameplay and story progression. Main missions are getting more and more expensive, I’m not going to spend those hard earned keys on a costume.

Lastly, the box to ask what I would like to change about the game came way too soon. I hadn’t even gotten my barring yet, I was not in a place to make a suggestion like that.

The soundtrack is a bit weak and repetitive. But, overall, loving this game. Keep it up!

Adore it!! 💗💗💗

Oh I absolutely LOVE this game! It takes some of the aspects I love and put into one game! Animals, making your own name, making a destroyed something become b-e-a-utiful! Though...there some things I find just a TAD bit annoying. The dialogue sets me off a bit, since the actors didn’t really pause when talking, and making it seem REAL, but I can handle that. What irks me the most are some of the levels. For instance, level 47, I was stuck on that gosh darn level for a WEEK!! It just seemed WAY to hard! I know the level is supposed to be hard, but not that hard to where it’s almost impossible to beat it with buying things! what I had to do. I had 200 bucks, no powers up, nothin’, than comes that level. I couldn’t progress! For the quest I had, I needed TWO keys, and I could only gather one, before I was stuck in a rut! Other than that, I really do like this game. It keeps my attention when I’m on it, which is a hard thing to have for me. I just wanted to say that, maybe make just a bit of the levels just a tad easier, for the people who have barely any money in game with no power ups and do not want to spend money to beat one level. If it’s to much, I am fine with how the game is, I just wanted to voice my opinion. Anyway, LOVE this game!🖤 keep it up!

Best match-3 game

I’m not one to write reviews, and I’m pretty critical, but there is not much to criticize about this delightful and very clever app! Every aspect—the graphics, the story, the music (it reminds me of the Gipsy Kings), the humor, and the talented voice actors for the characters are well-done and I just love it! It’s a very well thought out game that is challenging but not frustrating (at least not yet, I’m only 47 levels in), a feat no other match-3 game I’ve played (over a dozen) can match (pun intended). If they had an adventure blast game like Lost Island (which is frustrating but the only blast adventure/renovation app I can find) I’m sure it would be phenomenal as well. The app developers didn’t just slap this together to make money (I haven’t even made any in-app purchases yet but I might when I’m not broke lol); they clearly put a lot of effort into this and it shows! Thanks for creating this whimsical and entertaining game!
