Wow,
right now, I'm in level 21 and I have to admit, it's my new favorite match-3 game. It's just perfectly executed. Controls are perfect. There are a lot of cool power-ups, the music and sounds are fantastic (old themes in a wonderful chilly mood). I was expecting half the game I got now. Really, really love it. Highly entertaining.

If you like match-3 games, get this immediately.

Hrm, it looks like a simplified version of the web version.

One big question would be the difficulty ramping. In the web version it really was far too easy and didn't really get that much harder, IMHO in the later levels (it was very easy to stay ahead of the ghost in the outer rim).

Oh, already at level 21? So is it pretty easy or have you had some close calls in those 21 levels?
