Hey everyone and this is my review about the game!

This is a Puzzle game.



About the game.

I think we know these kind of games. You are a cannon with a color ball and you will fire your colored ball at the other matching balls at the top in order to destroy them. So if you have a blue ball you will have to fire at the other blue balls at the top. 3 balls of the same color are required to destroy them. You can bounce your colored ball against the wall to make certain angles possible.

Cave Quest (Match-3)

Steam copy provided for Curator review

One of my most-played match-3’s of all time!

Options include separate sliders for SFX, Music and Ambients, Full-screen, Custom Cursor and choice of Timed (bonus cash~! Ka-ching!) or Untimed (can be changed between M3 levels).


Your family has disappeared in the mountains, and thanks to rumors of dangerous evil spirits, the locals are too afraid to help you search for them.

It’s so hard to find a good match-3 game. This is one of them. Thanks for the nice experience! This game has it all. Including beautifully designed gems which are hard to spot! Story that glues the experience together, smoothness, good professional design, even translation to my language which I didn’t need but it’s ok. Finally a game that I couldn’t take my hands off and felt urge to play on. Good product! Now I pity it’s over.

Criticism: sure to perfection it lacks more compelling story, less artificial or less cliche story, better art - one that would not be so kitchy and which would be less amateurish and a better translation. Thanks to these imperfections the game stays as just no-name game in game history, as it doesn’t bring any cultural contribution. But it’s professionally and well made product anyway. Relaxing and fun enough.

Planet destroyer

This was not the game I was expecting, evidently there is another with the same title somewhere, but it was on sale for 49 cents so - why not? Twelve hours in and that works out to about 4 cents per hour, a bargain. Is it perfect? I noticed that some complained about bugs. I experienced one freeze, other than that nothing terrible. Sometimes tiles go away that did not seem related to the combination that I made, but - 49 cents? It’s possible to finish the whole game and get all of the achievements. It’s mind-numbing and repetitious, but who among us does not need to spend an hour or so in pointless, mind-numbing tedium sometimes?

It may not be the most inspired match 3 game, it may not look too pretty, and it may have a few bugs, but the basic game mechanics of Planet Destroyer are solid, and if you like this type of game, you can absolutely have some fun with it. Less than a dollar for round about 3 hours of entertainment is an okay deal in my book, so I am giving this a thumbs up, more so because I think the developer(s) can use a bit of encouragement, since they do not seem to be all too experienced.

Sparkle 2

Sparkle 2

I consider myself a pretty hardcore marble popper fan playing games like Tumblebugs, Zuma and Luxor for many years so playing a full HD marble popper was a thrilling thought. While I enjoyed the game, I feel there needs to be more challenge involved and certain things limit players who play too fast.

First and foremost, why would you limit the rate at which new sphere is spawned? It ONLY limits my speed and makes me play slower then I actually would. This is something that was present in Sparkle 1 as well and I was not really a fan of it. Any Marble popper player who plays these games fast will probably hate this about Sparkle.

Short version:

I’m slowly and surely increasing my amount of ball-games.

There’s secrets in this game?


Long(er) version:

This game reminds me of the days when I played Zuma Deluxe, and was bought for that reason. It’s decently difficult at times, and at the moment I’m trying the harder modes of it. I would almost say that this game is even slightly better than Zuma Deluxe, from what my deduction skills tells me so far. Only bigger complaint is the lack of options you can edit. Overall, it is somewhere decent and very nice, more or less what you can expect from a game about balls, and that you can finish it fairly quickly. Is it worth its price? Well, ask yourself how much you’re willing to pay to play with balls. Personally, I enjoy playing with my balls.

Well, the 5th passage was a mediocre one. This is a match-3/marble game. The graphics are modest and so is the music. No real story here.

No bugs or crashes. Works fine on Win 7.

This might be the worst of all the Luxor games. Nothing stands out and rather is dumbed down. The new powers aren’t the big deal and nothing is really different from other Luxor games when it comes to design. As a matter of fact, this is kinda a game with just recycled assets. As with another game from this “saga”, there’s one single level that you can’t pass. It’s a little nasty trap from the developers. You will keep playing and failing that same level till the one you can win shows up. That alone would be enough to give it a thumbs down, but the dullness, lack of creativity, and certain stink of cash-grabbing make this a very skippable buy for anybody that likes the Luxor series or games alike.

Luxor Evolved

Luxor Evolved

A stunning arcade re-skin of the popular match-3/shmup mashup series with good production value. Now it looks like Tempest, sounds like Blade Runner, and plays like Galaga. Quite intense stuff, unlike anything you would usually associate with the brand.

It still banks on the 3 matches - powerup mechanic, and there is only one play mode which is score attack through ~50 levels. While levels differ only in marching patterns of neon marbles, plenty of variety comes from whopping 25 kinds of powerups you gradually unlock.

Real player with 26.1 hrs in game

Luxor Evovled takes the classic Luxor gameplay, turns the speed up to high and changes the art style into Tron and Tempest esque, cyberpunk Neon-fest, and its great. It seems like nearly any classic arcade game done in this style (Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Galaga, Tempest) turns out great, and Luxor Evolved is no exception.

If you’re familar with the Zuma or Luxor games, then you know what to expect - match three sphere of the same color as a row of spehere are rolling towards a pyramid you must defend. The game is largely the same, but with new map designs, a different look, a techno/electronica soundtrack, and a faster pace. It also seems that power ups drop more frequently, but lives are ALOT less frequent compared to the original - and this creates an inherent challenge when you may normally have no more than 2-3 lives. I think these small changes along are enough to make a very good game to a great game with an aesthetic that appeals to me more than the “casual Egyptian-style Flash game” look.

minoes is yet another spin on the ever-popular concept of tetris, and it’s a bloody good one. it takes a more horizontal approach, with multiple pieces falling at the same time, and you can only place blocks manually after catching them with your platform before they reach the top of the board and fall where they are. even if you see a falling 2x2 shape, it’s made up of single blocks and they can be caught (or missed) individually, and an upside down L-shape won’t stay that way after landing on the platform, the unsupported top bit will fall to the bottom.

Minoes is a clever twist on the classic arcade game of Tetris, combining a Rubik’s cube-like control over the blocks that allow for more creative problem solving, and more freedom to the player. While you play you listen to an upbeat retro-electronic soundtrack, all of which feels like it brings back the 1980’s.

The name “minoes” refers to polyominoes (such as dominoes), and there are special blocks that when trigged, activate different “domino” affects, which in some cases may clear the board. These special blocks add to an overall satisfying experience while playing this game.
