Default 1 dollar per mode ?!

I paid a dollar and i only get 1 mode !! and i have to pay a dollar for each additional modes?! It seems like it should have been a free game! And then you pay to add extra modes. Also, there's this PONOS ad on the top that stays there! Am I right? Or am i only dreaming?

Damn... seems the poster above is correct. Only 'Normal' mode is available... 1 minute, mission and endless are in app purchases. There is indeed a big 'More Games' banner that isn't in the screenshots.

The description on the store mentions the modes, but not that they are add on purchases!

That plus the 'special discount for a limited time!' certainly seems to imply that these modes would be included on purchase.

I'd hate to spend more then a dollar and find that out after purchase.

Sorry... but this feels really bait & switch to me.

Bought it some hours ago and it's a excellent game!!!
Concerning the additional modes: you don't have to pay for them
because you will unlock them too when you reach a specific target in the initial
so buying is just another option for the lazy ones.
btw: I've already unlocked all except the last mode in 2 hours

The banner ad is really strange: it just shows up on the iPad but not on
the iPhone ...not very distracting but I don't like to see this on a prominent place on a paid app

Anyhow: clear recommendation as this is one of the best matchX
at the moment and extremely addictive

Regarding IAP: PONOS games are usually a little more than $0.99. However, that's no excuse for releasing a product that is very bare bones on modes. It's bad business sense too, since I am sure they will get some negative reviews now. Also, a banner ad is unacceptable for a paid app.

This is PONOS, however, and their games are always really high quality. So I don't mind paying for the IAP. But yeah, it should be clearer and the base game should have more content.

Default Game Impressions

It is a really simple twist to the old "Match 3" (well more like match 4) but, dang, as much as I'm liking it I can't quite wrap my head around it yet.

Pick a gem, any gem, now connect to a same colored gem EXACTLY two spaces away taking any path you want. Better yet, form a chain of several of these same colored gems exactly two spaces away for each step. Make even bigger points if you can enclose an area doing this (having the last step of the chain reconnect to the initial stone again).

I've unlocked the Mission Mode that gives you a series of distinct missions like, "Make a Chain of 4" in under a minute and once completed your timer will be reset and you'll be told to "Make a Chain of 5". Your end score in this mode is simply how many missions you complete.
