App description: Embark on a dangerous island journey in search of the Treasures of Hotei. Swap gems and advance through each level, collecting coin parts that once combined will open the gates to the treasure! The challenge increases with each level, but help is on the way from a variety of clever bonuses. Send forth fire breath, electrify the board with lightning, or go big with an explosion!
A grand prize from the God Hotei waits for you at the end of your quest!

How to play:
Swap adjacent spheres to make a minimum set of 3. If you swap 4 or 5 spheres you will receive the bonuses.
You main target is connect all 4 parts of Magic Coin. This will take you to the next game level.


Hotei - One of the 7 gods of happiness, the happy god of abundance and good health.
Hotei has a cheerful face and a big belly, which protrudes from the robes he wears, symbolizes the largeness of his soul.
Hotei is also seen carrying a large bag over his shoulder that is said to contain gifts and fortunes for those who believe in his virtues.

You must find 11 magic coins (one coin on each island) and bring them to Hotei. If you can make it back, Hotei will give you his treasures!

Good Luck!

Since I'm a total Match 3 junkie, does anyone know if this is any good? The publisher isn't a big name, so I 'm just checking...

(Not that a big name publisher guarantees quality!).

Well it looks okay from the screenshots and the video, although the video is kinda misleading since it's obviously from the pc version (notice the pointer?)

Yeah, that's why I was checking to see if anyone had actually played the iOS version. Anyone?

Video was recorded on a PC, but do not worry, this game runs well as smoothly and quickly on iPad.
