Top Customer Reviews
I enjoy the Jewel Master Cradle series because the games are addictive and not too easy. I sometimes fail levels multiple times but I remain always encouraged to continue on. The difficulty is not off the charts - and I think would be manageable by most even younger kids (though probably not under 8 or so depending on the child). The only thing on this one is that the extras seem to take a bit longer to achieve (like the bomb that you can use to blast sections). No complaints though - this is a very solid and superb game that all match 3 game players should pick up. Nothing revolutionary - and not so different than its predecessors - which means you'll get hours and hours of entertainment value for your buck here!
Edited: There are some issues with this game, after a play through, that have come to light. Those who state the points don't calculate correctly are right in some places. Mine seem too at times and other times they are definitely not. It is not all of one type (e.g. shrimp). The tools do NOT carry over most of the time to the next level. However I have had them carry over every once in a while particularly with the lightning bolt yellow one. For me I got all the way through level 100 and I didn't "complete" the game so it sent me back to level 61. Playing through to level 100 I only got the first several tools - I was missing 3. As I played back up again starting from level 61 I obtained the rest of the tools. I have 250,000 resources but only 18,000 food (and so on) which makes the game somewhat unbalanced.
Now even after that I have to say I still love it and would give a 5. I use this to relax after a long day. It takes a lot to frustrate me so it wasn't that irritating to me to get dumped back since it's the game I like playing - flatly I wouldn't mind if it was never ending.
"5. If you cannot complete a level during the given time, try to build up your bonus tools as much as possible. The charge status of the bonus tools are carried over to the next attempt at that level, however the current scores are not,"
Indeed, this is how the original Cradle of Rome operated, BUT in this version the bonus tools accrued in a given level are lost if the level is not "won". This may be a change to make the game more difficult, which it very much is! If that is the case, the instructions *should* reflect the way the game operates.
I have also observed the scoring problems mentioned in another review... I hope they re-issue a "fixed" version of the game, as this one has apparently been discontinued. The "match" play and graphics are very good, but the game is frustrating to play.
As with the original game, once you hit level 100, you have to go back if you have not accumulated enough money to buy what you need to complete the city. One nice feature is that if you lose a level, you do not lose any power ups that you had before you started that level.
In the original game, some levels were so easy you could have all your power ups enabled to help you clear harder levels. This is harder to do in this version since you need to use your power ups to clear levels, at least I had to.
It does seem to be very hard to collect money. I suspect to get more money you have to focus more on clearing 4 and 5 pieces at the same time to get bonus points.
