This has been the best match-3 offering in a while. Match-3 holds a special place in my heart because that's where I started gaming and this one is terrific. It has a "save our town" storyline and the old Clockmaker is the one who gets you started and runs the power-up shop. The town has lost it's life because a curse has made time run backwards. You go from house to house and play to restore each home. The colors are bright and the graphics sharp, the sounds for the power-ups are nice and the musical soundtrack is very spooky {Halloween-type} and appropriate for the game. There are bonus levels that require some strategic thinking and you can skip or replay them. You can also undo your last move. There are moments of a super round of gameplay and then it returns to the normal mode. There is a relaxed choice and a timed choice. I really had a good time and I think this should appeal to the inner child in all of us.

I was able to preview this game when it was in it's beta stages. I fell in love with it then, and could not wait for it to be released. I bought this without even trying it before you buy it, because I knew I would love it. I have just played a couple of the levels, and still love it just as much, if not more, when I played it in it's beta stage. I love Match 3 games and this one is the best I've played in a real long time. I love how you can play timed or untimed. The graphics are awesome!!! As for the music, I can't really comment on, because I turn the music down/off when I play. If you love Match 3 games, I would highly recommend this game!!! :) BF, please bring more Match 3 games like this!!! :)

Excellent M3

One of the best I've played so far in all respects. The graphics are great, the play gets progressively more difficult, but in untimed mode (the only kind of M3 I will play), it's fun to work out the puzzle not just make matches. The puzzle levels are difficult and I'm skipping them till I've played it all out and will then go back and play again. That means to me that this is worth the purchase as there is still more to enjoy.

I Love This New M3!

Owning over 65 match 3 games, I was pleasantly surprised with Riddle! It's similar to Alchemist's Apprentice in that you have certain tiles that are your goal to match, these using clock hands. I love the music, and the graphics are bright and colorful. After each game board, if you've earned enough $$$ you are directed back to the town, where you have the opportunity to purchase more power-ups. I like this method of introducing power-ups gradually, so that you're learning and remembering them as you go along, rather than having them all introduced in the initial instructions, and you have to try to remember what they all do as you play. The game introduces challenges and power-ups early. It's one of the most fun M3 I've played and can't wait to get back to it! Enjoy!

Love this game!

How refreshing to have a new game that is so different from all the other Match 3 games I have. Kudo's to the developer!!! We have the OPTION to play timed or untimed. Something for everyone which is great. TY TY TY. Graphics are great so far the music is ok. I am not one to listen to the music, however, I did listen to it while playing the demo. The object of the game is to restore a town that has been devistated. We play the Match 3 and help to restore what has been destroyed...Never fear citizens...we are coming to rescue all of you and restore your town one player at a time. Enjoy

Old Clockmaker's Riddle: Just Had To Buy!

Unique and very cute game with lighthearted haunted tones. Nicely designed Match 3 game all about fun! Somewhat similar as 'Jewel Legends' only considerably less challenge, but more Storyline. I love how you get to revisit clock maker for all your power up purchases and he explains use of them in detail. As you collect more gems, you can also upgrade power ups. Art work is awesome and really pulls me into game. Hope we see more of these uniquely designed Match 3 games!

I enjoyed the match three game , the colorful tiles and the not so complicated story line .I could play for hours on this game for simply listening to the music ...Great choice to the sound department on that one .Thank You for making a fun match three.

Thank you for this one, Felix!

This is an incredibly fun match-3 game. First, every screen is in "puzzle" mode, meaning that the tiles are not arranged randomly, but in ways that yield big rewards for slow and careful play. Still, the bonuses you get automatically for good matches might make it lots of fun for players who like a timer, also. And then there are the optional bonus puzzles, which can be quite hard. Second, the story is nice -- revive a "dead" town -- but not too much time away from the game itself is necessary. Third, the task of collecting clock hands instead of breaking tiles or dropping game pieces to the bottom is a nice change. I'm not way far into the game yet, but it seems to progress at a nice pace. Finally, as a person owned by rescued brother and sister "witch cats," I love the black cat!

Wonderful Game

This is a great game the game play is very interesting, I really like to play match 3 and this is such a fun game in my opinion, I had the chance to play the beta trial and I couldn't wait for the game to come out and now that it has, I'm going to buy without trying because I really like the story and gameplay. If you like M3 you should try this one, I hope you like it as much as I did. I really do recommend this game.
