Legend of Egypt:  Jewels of the Gods

I LOVE   M3 (match 3) games. Does it have a storyline? I love it that much more. Does it have nice bonuses? Love it even MORE!!  But, when an M3 game has too much of everything it becomes ..... well ..... too much. More than a bit overwhelming for the senses.

I enjoyed the graphics, although the game board was a bit small. The music was very enjoyable ...... however, I DID have to turn it way down because the t.v. was on. Go figure.

The storyline was equally nice. Egyptian Pharaoh's kingdom is destroyed and he goes to the gods to plea for his wife's (Aziza) health as she is so ill she is dying. Aziza brings light and joy and sunshine to the Pharaoh and, therefore, the kingdom. Very romantic and sweet.    The gods tell the pharaoh that he must prove himself AND build another kingdom then they will determine Aziza's fate.

There is a tutorial ...... OMGosh WHAT a tutorial. BEYOND perfect for a beginner who has never played an M3. It irritated me sooooooooooooooooo much I had to turn it off. There are 3 modes of difficulty: relaxed (no timer), normal and hard. There is also an area to place your profile. There are bonuses ...... and ....... MORE bonuses (but what's the difference?).

There are buttons ...................... EVERYWHERE! But they're not marked! Where's the profile button? Ooops! Found it .... quite by accident!   Options, Difficulty Modes ..... and none of these covered in the overwhelming tutorial.

So, I finally GET to the game (a typical M3 game) and .................... too much going on at the same time: blow this up, destroy that, bonuses on the board but also bonuses that "fill up" and "recharge" - HUH???? 

Oh, but let's NOT forget the city that has to be built to appease the gods!    THIS involves MORE "stuff" going on. While you are matching the objects on the game board, you MUST collect 'x" number of this, that and the other thing so you can accumulate everything (coins, gold, etc.)  you need to build  this city (there are various buildings, etc. at the bottom of the game board).

This is an extremely dizzying game wherein the actual match 3 game gets lost among everything else. It wasn't enjoyable for me and, therefore, it is not a purchase for me either. For those who like it ............................


Where am I going? And why am I in this hand basket!!!?
