Match 3 recommendations?

Postby Rosaboobie » Sun Jan 24, 2016 7:33 am

Can anyone suggest any challenging Match 3 games, such as Atlantis and Around the World in 80 days - the kind that get harder and harder as you progress? I am getting bored with ATWIED!

I still play Call of Atlantis too! I don't have any others though... I'd suggest downloading trials of some of the ones at Big Fish and see if there are any you like.

I've always liked Zuma. I have the deluxe version. Also, the Luxor series is fun.

Not sure if I have tried either of those games, LadyK - will download and try them. Edit: Is Zuma not a marble popper?

Yes, Drac, I download a trial version of all the new Match 3 games, but they are not a patch on my favourites.

I still play Around the Word and Atlantis, but I can almost play ATW with my eyes closed lol.

Have you tried the 3 Rainbow Web games from BigFish? Definitely NOT a walk in the park.

Yes, both games shoot marbles to match at least 3 of the same color. Sorry for the confusion. Of the regular match 3 games, I still play Bejeweled. For something with variety, I like Ancient Quest of Saqqarah, which has all different kinds of match 3 games and lots of levels with an Egyptian theme. I still have two levels to finish in the temple of Thoth, which is more puzzly than the other temples.

I have found one match 3 that is ok, but not as challenging as I would like. Legend of Maya

I have Call of Atlantis on both computers. So far I can't find a game like that that keeps me playing. I also have BrickShooter Egypt.. I don't know how long I've been replaying that one... it's a good filler when a commercial comes on.... and during the news..lol

I am like you, Winfrey - I have Atlantis and Around the World in 80 Days - but I cant find another match 3 that comes anywhere near these games.

I am afraid I dont like marble poppers and games like that.

Have you ever played brickshooter egypt? It is not s shooter game it is a match game... Where you have to match colors to remove them... you should look at it.

Thank you - I see its made by Playrix, one of my favourite developers for this genre.

Just trying out Atlantis Quest but not sure if I like it!

I say again, try the Rainbow Web games! There are 3 of them, each one starts out simple and gets harder and harder and harder. They also have a totally unique design, including spiral webs in No.3. Definite high replayability. Go ahead, download the free trial!
