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.

Heroes from the Past: Joan of Arc has the typical match 3 set-up, but like the Azkend games, you can choose your gameplay mode of swap, chain, or block base to remove pieces. While learning about Jeanne d’Arc’s endeavors to free her country from English rule during the early 15th century, but we are also popping out icon, and when we reach a certain number of icon and meet the requirement of each puzzle quest, then we are reward with a gold allotment to spend on rebuilding our medieval town.

Well, it looks like PopCap redeemed themselves from that disastrous Game of Life with this one. Bejeweled is the Cadillac of match 3 games, and this model is the sharpest one yet. It featured four kinds of play, Classic, Zen, Quest, and Lightning. The Quest mode is by far the most interesting one, in which you must race against speedy glaciers (omymoron much?), a perpetually building wall of gems, and other things that could hinder your progress, depending on the puzzle you choose. Classic is what we all know and love best, but the Stargate-style effect when switching puzzles just adds to the coolness.

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.

I know that match 3 games are supposed to relaxing, but please don’t try to put me to sleep. I’ve got access to Tullamore Dew for that. While this game has bright, pretty graphics, the background music is just so easy listening, you would think you had tuned into an instrumental easy listening station from the 1970s early FM days. Those of you from Central Ohio might remember that lame, boring granny music station that was one notch down from WNCI, which is still one of the hottest stations in the nation. I don’t think that other one is even still around.
