MS One: Maximum Security is a rather quirky yet fun film to watch which takes place in the future of 2079.

There are hints at a love triangle, but the focus on finding the “Oracle of Ur” is based in finding jewel boards, and putting them together. Then we get into the sparkling match 3 puzzles we promised. Read more...(291 words, 31 images, estimated 1:10 mins reading time)
