over 30 kinds of monsters and divided 6 stages.

Gabrien's comments:
This looks very interesting. Not sure for mine though, how much faith it's possible to have in a game where the devs apparently managed to typo the title...

Bought, bought and... Bought!

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.

Is the matching fast? Does it play as well as Montezuma, Kalevala, or one of the Match-3 greats?

Thanks for any info!

High hopes - buttttt - music tends to fade in and out and I keep crashing during the first level. I did a reset and still the same thing. If it didn't crash - the blocks move a little slowly and there is an animation of a battle between every move. Kind of neat but kind of annoying at the same time.

If I can get past first level I will let y'all know more. (maybe not working well on a 2g?)

Thank you for the quick impressions.
I found only one video on YouTube (searching iPhone Shining Core) which seems nice but I do not understand one thing: are the only sequential matches or is there an actual story/you explore somewhere and move your PC?
I notice different backgrounds but I do not know if it's only a cosmetic things to differentiate monsters battles.

It appears there will be a progression to the story, however not getting past the first level I can't say for sure. I tried to contact them using the support link but the webpage is blank. Also not a good sign.
