This game has been out for some time, but I had recently rediscovered it after losing it awhile back. Magic Match is one very addictive game, and it will keep you going for hours, and even days. You start out as a wizard on a little quest in an enchanted forest with a furry companion not unlike an Ewok. This annoying little dude is Giggles, and he is about the only annoying about this game, except for the bard that sings a silly little ditty between areas as you go on your quest.

This is not the typical match 3 game, as you will be collecting components on the grid to cast spells and make potions. With each new area you come into, the objects on the grid change, and there are more barriers added to make your gameplay increasingly difficult, but they always stay on theme. In the forest, hunt the grid for big blue mushrooms and bugs and such. In the tropics, for pirate treasure and hulu masks on a volcanic island, so the terrain does change along the way. In some places, Giggles takes over the grid and plays his own version of Pac-Man.

To really enjoy this game, you have to remember that is was created back in the early 2000s-late 1990s, and click the option to mute Giggles. It makes the gameplay so much better, but the bard’s silly songs are few, and far between, so just listen as you give your eyes a break from the grid. You will soon find yourself competing with others in your house and trying for a better score in Magic Match.
