When it comes to match 3 games, Royal Gems pretty much follows the typical line pattern, like in Magic Match, but before you do ANYTHING with this game, log into the options menu and turn the background music OFF. This will make it much easier to play the game, and you will not find yourself falling to sleep due to a far too relaxing drone of a repetitive tune. Now, get on into the game. You will be matching up icons that look like different kinds of gems, rubies, topaz, sapphires, emeralds, and such. You are given a specific task per puzzle. You need to find so many of a certain kind of stone, and sometimes, find different patterns of line links of gems.
Making Mr. Right was about as wrong as it gets. This game was a sure-fire stinker from the start. We play as a love expert, whom is not married herself, gee, wonder why? She goes from town to town selling services at a studio to help hopelessly romantic men build their skills to catch the local girl of their dreams.
There are several tiers in this game, and it falls into many categories, so it can all get very confusing. We have the time management part, in the studio itself, where the guys work on their skills. The builder game, where we build homes and shops to help the love grow in the community, and a match 3 game, where we match up stuff like candy, gems, and flowers in the gift shop as a side project. It’s a HGTV show on Lifetime sponsored by Every Kiss Begins with Kay. Too much going on here, way too much!
I could have found a better way to spend an hour of gaming, because Panda Gourmet was not worth the time I put into it. It is the typical Match 3 game, you have to match food items on a grid to fill Panda’s order, and even though eventually you get tools to help you, the sounds that come from the game when you use them has to be among the world’s top ten most annoying noises.
Panda Gourmet, really stupid what more can I say? I guess I can say more… stay away from this game. There are far better match 3 games out there, from the Seven Wonders series, and Jungo, and the one game that will keep you up all night, The Heroes of Kalevela. If you need a match 3 fix, then go get one of these, and leave Panda Gourmet behind. As kawaii as that annoying panda might be, he’s not worth your time. Now, go get your game, and don’t even bother with Panda Gourmet. It’s just that lame!
Lost in Night is put out by Rumbic Studio, and it was the first game of theirs that I had every played. While it was cute, and had a style that Rumbic can call their own, I did like the fact that as a Match 3 game, you could choose the style in which it was played. With match 3 games, there are typically 3 kind of ways you can collect icons. They are swap, group, and chain. Lost in Night started off with swap. As you played further along, you were given the option to choose group, like in the game, Qbeez. To choose chain will give you game play like in Magic Match.
Once again, we have been treated by Myth People to another great match 3 game, but I found Azkend to be to much like Heroes of Hellas. While the storyline was far different, as you are playing as an explorer searching for an artifact to cure your strange illness, the maze-like matching had you following little icons all over the hexagonal grid.
While I did not mind the grid game itself much, the mini-game where you have to match parts of the background picture to itself was a bit frustrating, as it really did not lend to the game much, and some parts of you background looked to similar to each other. This was very much a right-brain part of the game, and I was happy to get back to the left brain part of it when the grids came back up.
