Can anyone comment if there is any hint of pay2win? Like getting high scores if you spend real money on powerups or something like that.

Not sure about this one. I think their crowning glory was Montezuma 3 which has been on my phone since it was released way back when. Of all the series I'd recommend that one - pay on admission and nothing else. I think this Blitz version is now following the likes of the other match 3s that charge for the power ups to get you out of tricky situations. Shame really, but M3 is good.

I do not see anything I haven't seen at least a thousand times before . There seems to be nothing unique that sets this game apart from any other match 3 game. The goal based game mechanic combined with the free price tag makes me think that the question you failed your goal do you want to buy a bonus or live very frequently

While a fan of the previous Montezuma games, this one gets a big 1 out of 5 in my book!

They've not only thrown in the traditional pay for your powerups, but to use any of the classic totem powers, you'll need to pay to use for each level's use as well!

They've added quite a few things, but this looks to be an iPad version of the game they put out on the Vilta, which I absolutely love.
It's a little slow to start out, but after you get good at it you can really have a ball.

I remember having this on my Vita. Wasn't anything out of the ordinary as far as F2P games are. I'll check this out as there is a lot of fun to be had here. It looks like your run of the mill match 3 but it's actually pretty unique once you get into it.

Played for about a half hour now. Seems pretty fair. A little pay to win but doesn't make it any less fun. If you like match 3's then is say get this. It's pretty awesome. And free as long as you have a little patience. I honestly haven't ran out of anything...not even close.

Looks like the difficulty curve in this one may be smoother than other f2p match-3 games of this style because of the fact your energy is depleted no matter if you win or lose. The goals so far have been fair and manageable. I'm finding that you may be better off not using totems so you can save those gems for upgrades instead.

Ran into a bug on my iPod Touch 5g though. Music no longer plays during levels. Tried restarting and force closing everything, but the music won't come back.
