A feedback will be welcome, what's special in the match 3 system? What are other values of the game that clearly tries offer more than a pure match 3 game?

Yes. It is very interesting to add City Building in the match 3 game.

My love Match 3 game should be:
1. Fast response when swapping
2. Multi response. (No need to wait the first swap finished. i.e. Multi-Swap)
3. Special item. More different special item which can level-up with its power.
4. Of course. Auto-Save.

Already bought some HD Match-3 game this month, need to wait for a while to buy it. Really want to try this one.

Beta Tested: 34 apps and games.

Hey BazookaTime -

What is with som many of the jewels going away and being filled back up? Looks like a massive combo system... Is this typical, or the exception?

Is there multi-touch like Montezuma, or is it wait until its done before choosing the next one?

Good level selection? Powerups?

IOW - can you give me more juicy details????

I hope that a lite comes out for this...
