YIKES! Oh my god - I wan that for my iPhone! And I'd like to see Stoneloops! of Jurassica back in the AppStore!

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.

the PC version you can download for free on trial is insane. Tons of polish. Reminds me of Treasures of Montezuma mixed with Heroes of Kavalwhatever it is

What the price for this ? It's still not showing up on iTunes.

I'm an app-oholic! And there's no 12-step program...
IAPs = I Ain't Purchasing, son !

They released the iphone versions each as a separate game each being like 30MB for $1 each. Now they release this with all seven games combined for $7 for hopefully they'll have decent sales. Although still hard to say if the casual user will spring for more than $4.99 or not. Tough market. This game is very well polished I will say that.

the seven are:
Temple of Blast
Temple of Isis
Temple of Anubis
Temple of Osiris
Temple of Thot
Temple of Horus
Temple of Sobek

Each one has a slightly different method of matching. Definitely one of the best matching 3 games I'd say.

This game is stunning and a no brainer for match 3 fans and well worth the current asking price and the end of the day there are 500 levels

I am glad you posted this as I had forgot about these games. I remember holding off because they would take up too many spots. Nice to have them in one app.
