3.0 out of 5 stars Great story line but repetitive March 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
The game has a nice story line, you are forced to leave your homeland and start anew in Kalevala. For history nuts like me, the tribe elder consulted the bones (like the oracle bones in ancient China!) and they told you to go to Kalevala. So there is a story here.

You have a guide in Kalevala. He starts you off on level 1 with a nice little puzzle where you have to match 3 items on the game board. The game then turns you into a designer, as you are on your new island and can relocate trees and flowers. Then more puzzle games allow you to increase your cities wealth and improve conditions on the island, like removing ice. With the improved wealth you can buy things like huts, trees, flowers, and more to place on your island.

Problems arise on your island and you are forced to solve the puzzles to counteract the problems. That's my main problem with the game. All the game play is puzzles, so it becomes very repetitive. If there were more game play modes, different types of mini games, this would be a great game, because it does have a good story line and it does have good customization on your island.

As a free app, it's good and worth a try. However, due to the repetition of playing the same game type (match 3 puzzles) every time, it has limited replay value over time and I wouldn't pay $2.99 for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I played for how long?!?! March 7, 2013
Verified Purchase
I tried this game 1; FAOD 2; village building and match three game. I really didn't have any expectations but was pleasently surprised! It isn't overly complicated. I really like that I don't have to post to the world or "get neighbors" to move along. Heck, not once in the hour or two (lost track of time) was I accosted to "rate ", "like ", or anything of that nature! There is options on the main menu for social media links but it isn't FORCED upon you! I was so impressed by the game play and by the fact I can just play, I happily left this review of my own free will. Oh! Also NO IAP!!! It runs nicely on my KF. Enjoy

4.0 out of 5 stars pretty good March 7, 2013

Nice little game, downloaded and installed fine on my RAZR. But there is one problem that keeps it from 5 stars. The play screen is kind of small. I found some difficulty with my larger fingers tapping and dragging pieces on the small play field. They should have given the ability to zoom in or made better use of the play field.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally nice Match-3 March 7, 2013
By HilDan
Verified Purchase
There are four villages to be built, all with their own unique style. Every addition to a village is bought with money that is earned by playing match-3 boards. The boards have to be completed before the raven finishes his flight around the gameboard. Before each game, you select a hero whose unique abilities will help clear the board. For example, one hero throws a hammer, one floods the board, one creates a whirlpool, etc. Heroes are activated by making a match-3 with the hero's tiles. The game becomes more challenging as it progresses. If you fail to clear a board, you can replay with the same hero or try a different one. Villagers award bronze, silver, and gold medals for building their village.

Fans of match-3 games should give this one a try. This is quite a large game and very enjoyable.

Kalevala is the promised land of the shaman and your tribe must leave their land that is ravaged by drought and travel across the ocean to the new land. This is a classic match three game where you have to clear the board tiles and you earn jewels for coins. If you make good matches you earn explosives which can help you clear the board even faster. The bigger the number of tile matches the bigger the bomb.

There is a good story line interlaced between the games. You use your money to purchase homes, trees and flowers to make the town look nicer and attract new villagers. The graphics are nicely done and the game is fun to play if you like match 3 games. Just remember if you don't buy trees and flowers the villagers can get unhappy. In addition there are evil things that can try to destroy your village and make sure that you work faster.

I have owned this app for 1 year as it is a repeat free app. It is a good game and fun to play. It is worth downloading and even worth purchasing. It contains Flurry Analytics and internet access but it has no invasive permissions to gather your personal data. It can track your game activity. I rated it as a 5 star game.

It's a nice twist on the "match-3" game-play genre. The addition of a strategy/builder aspect to the game definitely keeps my attention more than just, "Okay you beat that level, here's the next one that's almost identical" plateau you reach in other match-3 games like Disney's Freefall line, Candy Crush, or the older (but still classic) Bejeweled games.

The narration is helpful at first (if nothing else, you get to find out how the developer thinks Kalevala should be pronounced), but becomes a bit intrusive later in the game. There should be an option to turn off the (very well-read, I might add) narration and just show the words in a box or something. Also the sound is too loud to hear the narrator in some of the cut-aways.

The permissions are minimal, but the inclusion of Furry Analytics is about a 3/4-star loss. But the app does exit cleanly using the table/phone back arrow (there is no "Quit" button, you have to back out using the arrow or home buttons on your device), so that removes a lot of worries (especially if you're getting this for a kid in your home as well).

I would actually like a bit more control over the builder side of the app. You basically just drop houses and that gives you a preset number of people for your village. They go around doing things and making friends with each other completely without your input...but I'd like some input in that. I think it would make the game quite a bit more interest-holding.

All-in-all, there are a lot of pluses and only a couple minuses in this app. As the free app of the day, I think you should get it (unless you're so burnt out on match-3 games that it would cause you physical or mental stress. lol).
But at $2.99? I don't think it's worth that much.

1.0 out of 5 stars frustrating
This game will only launch if I'm connected to a wifi hot spot. It seems more geared to a tablet than phone. It has some inretesting mechanics, but not worth spending money on.
