The Rise of Atlantis  - Review

The Rise of Atlantis
Ages: Everyone

Developers are constantly trying to give a new twist to the "Match 3" games. This one does it by the accompanying story. You travel through the ancient lands of the Mediterranean Phoenicia, Babylon, Egypt, Carthage, Rome, Greece and Troy. Every location is introduced with an appropriate animation and additional information comes on screen as the game progresses.

In each location you must collect pieces of a magic artifact by navigating these pieces to the bottom of the screen (while you are matching 3) so they become available to construct the artifact. There are special power ups bombs and exploding sun power that help mix up the board. The way the game is constructed, there are 77 different level to play to conclusion. More than enough even for diehards. The music and the game's tempo make it a relatively relaxing game.

Fun Factor: A geography lesson - learn while you play.
