Cradle of Persia is good

ofic | 4
Pros: Different than a routine match 3
Cons: Strategy difficult
Comments: A good game but I don't feel it's as good as its predecesor Cradle of Rome. Everything is pretty much the same again, gather materials and money and when you have enough you build your empire. The one problem with this version is the replacement tiles come from an unpredictable direction and I was unable to come up with any strategy which is always a fun aspect. What is left is an exercise of just mechanically trying to spot the best match. That being said this is still a fun game which I recommend for all age groups.

Match 3 with a Twist

mare | 4
Pros: Token types
Comments: This match three game is a little different. You don't move them to make a match, you find ones already there - up, dawn, across and diagonally. It's fun tryong to see how many tokens you can get with each turn. Also as you gain scores in coins, building materials, food etc, you can build a little town, I found it a little addictive and kept playing just one more round. It's not real easy since I felt the time limit was a little short. It's a good game.
