What the heck?

This is the same game like this one:




It is even the same concept with the Altar of Poseidon, the lands through which you travel (Rome, Greece, Troy, Phoenicia, Babylon, Egypt and Carthage) and everything else... somebody has an explanation for this? In Rise of Atlantis you have the same power-ups, even the artifacts (crystals) you are collecting for Poseidons Altar are the same.

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

They are both on big fish and appear to be related. Probably a sequel.

Just picked this up and it's a lovely match 3 game with superb presentation enjoying it so far as for the comparison to the other game Vovin I haven't played it so I can't comment but it does look remarkably similar

It looks like it's the third part of an Atlantis Trilogy
I've just bought it a few hours ago and it looks quite polished and well designed.

As for the originality, it's another match 3 game.

Here's the link to the creator's homepage:

Playrix make the most polished casual games in the business. Call Of Atlantis is, in my opinion, the best of the bunch.

I've played it and completed it on PC and I'll be grabbing this too!

As you play it you'll realise how much depth there is. Later levels can get quite tricky where you need to save up your bonuses to free up really difficult pieces while matching 4 pieces to get the bonuses becomes quite difficult.

Definitely my favorite Match 3 game. Well - this and Bejeweled Blitz.

Downloading now - woot!

EDIT: Actually - was going to mention that I think this is the first Playrix game for iPhone actually done internally. The "Rise Of Atlantis" mentioned above isn't great.

I don't think it is a part of a triology, because even the story is the same.
It must be a clone or a remake.

edit:

I played through The Rise Of Atlantis a while ago and tried the lite of Call Of Atlantis.
Call Of Atlantis is more polished, but it is quite the same as The Rise Of Atlantis

Uhm, Call of Atlantis, The Rise of Atlantis and Atlantis Quest are all published by Playrix on PC. So I think it's part of a thrilogy. They published Around the World in 80 Days too.

Aha. Intelligent devs. Designed three times the same game...
