Challenging Match 3's?

Challenging Match 3's? - 01/31/13 04:01 AM

I am looking for a new and challenging Match 3 game - I am an addict of Around the World in 80 Days but having played the full game hundreds of times, I would like to try something new. I am NOT into your ordinary run of the mill games but one in which you need a lot of thought and strategy. Any suggestions please?

Have you tried the Jewel Quest games? There's 4 of them. They start out fairly easy and each level becomes increasingly more difficult.

Hmmm - I don't think I have tried them. Thanks, I will try out the demo.

Does it matter which order I play them in?

Try Caribbean Hideaway. It gets very difficult as it progresses and I like it so much that I have played it through completely approximately four times so far. wave

I couldn't find this one on BF - is it Caribbean Treasures, or should I look elsewhere?

I like Match 3's, and especially the two mentioned - Around the World and Crystal Cave

thanks for the heads up

I found the later stages of Jewel Quests 3 and 4 very challenging scared

But Jewel Quests 1 & 2 I still play regularly - and really enjoy myself doing so grin

Janice, I'm glad you like the game, but it is indeed a timed game. I hope you see this before you get the game, just in case you are unhappy with the timer. I'm sorry I didn't mention the timer before. It's really fun, though. wave

oh yes, I see now that it's timed - it took me quite a few rounds and a few failures to figure out the strategy of it - I had been playing like a straight Match 3.


this is a great game, and I'm loving it - it does get more challenging, but also more interesting

And while cleaning up my laptop, I also found I had Call of Atlantis, so I am playing that now. For me, Playrix seems to make the best Match 3's.

Hey, I forgot about that one Rosaboobie. Went back to it and found I had not finished it. Fun game.

I am having a lot of fun with Call of Atlantis - I am already on Journey 2!

Does anyone know if Rise of Atlantis came before or after Call of Atlantis? And is "Rise" as good as "Call"?

wave Hi Marian,
Thanks to you, I got Caribbean Hideaway using a free game at Bigfish. I'm loving it, but it's not easy. I was ready for a challenging game. I'm on level 39 now, after being stuck on 30 for awhile, but I'm getting better. lol
Thanks
Kay

That's great to hear that you like the game so much, Kay. It definitely gets more challenging as you go along! grin wave
