Oldy but a real goody!

This is one of my all-time favorite classic games that I've replayed many times in the past and, will continue to replay, because of its' unique - so far - game mechanic of chains that move the entire section touched -vertical/horizontal- as well as the good power-ups and the enjoyable music.

Good fun

better than the other cradle games. Maybe it is my perspective as trying this one first then the others but I would play bejeweled 2 for a match 3 game I like the chain aspect of this one as well as the added building of an empire :-)

fun game

someone said it whas a easy game, it was not easy for me and i have play this sort of game for a long time. great game . i dont listen to the music and dont follow the storyline, i just play the game:))

Interesting "Cradle of" game

I like all the "Cradle of" games, but this one has a variation on the match 3 in which you have to unite lines of any length. It actually takes some planning to set up a playing board that can be won. As you work higher they get quite a bit harder. I keep returning to this game and always find it fun and challenging.


This is by far - the most fun that I've had playing a match 3 game. I prefer the option to drag and link objects compared to the current games where you have to swap tiles to clear objects. I haven't found a similar game at Big Fish yet ! Keeping my fingers crossed though! Overall, great fun - for a game newbie!

Fast and fun!

Enjoyed the other Cradle games and this one is a chain game. Enjoyed it--fast moving. I would rather have a different cursor but the cursor speed button helped so it did encourage me to buy this game. If you like chains, you will enjoy this. I recommend this game. Enough changes to keep your interest.

Cradle of Persia

REALLY enjoy this game. Testing my skills as to how fast I can finish this game.

Building Ancient Persia

Fun game as each level is more challenging -- I enjoyed this more than the other Cradle game I played (Cradle of Rome). You can collect tools to assist you in destroying the tiles.

I come back to this game often

This game has a different slant that makes it fun to come back to when I'm tired of hidden object or match 3 games.

This is a fun game but impossible to finish

I need to be truthful. I liked the idea. It is educational in that you learn something of the history of Persia. The graphics are good. I like the challenge of the levels until you get to mid level 50 +. I came to level 61 and could go no further. The game itself made it impossible to win. I noticed the same thing with Cradle to Rome. Up to this point it was enjoyable. Just know it is a game you cannot fully finish.
