While this Match 3 game is a little different, it did not make it any less boring. It had all the bells and whistles of most any 80s arcade game, but the game play itself was lacking in challenge at first, but as your levels went up, your timer went down. Having bombs and using multiple pops did boost your score. You had to reach a certain number before time was up to get to the next level. Between levels were optional challenge puzzles where one would make one move in hopes the whole puzzle would collapse in on itself, but I would never stay for any than three tries on these.
While this game is colourful and loud, it does not keep me addicted to it like Heroes of Kalevala has for hours at a time, nor do I have a yearning to try it again. There are many match 3 games I have enjoyed far more than this one, and others I’ve yet to try.
Sorry guys, but Pirates of New Horizons: Planet Buster just did not strike anything but a flat note for me. Keep giving me match 3 games based on mythical legends, and I’ll most definitely stick around.
