The Treasures Of Montezuma 3 $1.99 ===> $0.99



One of the best Match 3 games out there! Bought it @ $2.99 when it was first released but it's been well worth it. Better than Bejewelled Blitz IMHO, polished, addictive and challenging without being too difficult. A bargain at this price!

A really excellent match-3 even for the release price of $3 (which I'd paid) but having it at .99 is a must have for the fence riders.

Indeed. Hopefully there will be a sale for HD version so that I can add it to my iPad's collection of quality Match 3 games.

Is it better than 7 Wonders: Magical Mystery Tour? That's what I consider to be the best match-3 for iOS at the moment and would love another great one.

And also, how does this compare to the first one? I have ToM1 and didn't know if this adds anything new.

Favorite developers: Grumpyface, Michael Brough, Rocketcat, Donut Games, Nitrome, Orange Pixel, Radiangames, Llamasoft (come back!)

There is / was.... It went from $4.99 to $2.99


Oh, maybe you wanted it to go from $4.99 to $0.99???

There was the opening few days, where IAP for the HD version was only a buck... IDK if its still that way, although having a "lite" icon suxxxx....

Different games. ToM3 is like Bejeweled Blitz.... all games are 1 minute - gets screaming fast, and kazillions of things happening all at once with a lot of power ups activated. 7 Wonders is also a great Match 3... Love it myself. Very, very different experiences, but both are great (ToM3 ONLY if you love fast paced, and keep in mind every game is only about 1 minute (you can get some extra time with power ups, but unlike the first ones where you could get minutes, this one you only get a few seconds...)

Much more polished than ToM1 - movement much smoother. Powerups similar, not exact though.. Again, only 1 minute games. Most people don't seem to mind. It is the biggest detractor in my mind, but its still a great game.

I could never get into the "one minute" thing. Liked the previous two games but can't see myself picking this one up even with the sale. What's here would be fine as an extra mode or something, but for this to be all there is just feels like the "meat" of the game is missing.

Thanks for the alert

Looks like Alawar is doing a massive 0.69/$0.99 sale as we speak
