Oriental Dreams

A challenge as old as the Orient rises up before you! Will you accept this test of your mind and spirit or turn and run? On the surface, the task is simple: clear a board of colored runes by creating matches of three or more stones. As you progress, however, the puzzles will become harder and the obstacles more cunning in Oriental Dreams, a fun Puzzle game!

I think the great thing about Big Fish is that they hold our games and in a year or so it is always fun to reinstall a game and then discover that it is actually easier than the first time played, or even more fun. I wish Big Fish would make more like this. The game play is sometimes interrupted by mini-games like matching the pieces of the pictures or hidden objects ones. Obstacles to matching are Walls that will block balls you need to finish a goal; Protected balls - locked into place and unmovable until un-protected.

It seems the tasks are never the same and you never know what is waiting for you during the next level. Assemble the figure, some Hidden Object levels, collect hidden map - at the end of a chapter of your journey. I wish I could find another match 3 like it.

The levels have different goals which add to a sense of variaition and challenge; Collect all runes - which are inside sparkly balls of a colour. Mysterious music and sound effects take you way in the enigmatic world of dreams and lost memories. It's far from being a short game due to the fact the challenge's of getting all the trophy's and gold cups on each level will prevent you from shutting down the game until you win!

So just moving the balls around without making matches will soon fill up the board making it impossible to move. What are you waiting for? If you complete a level under a certain time limit you will win either a silver or gold trophy, but Battle Slots is no penalty for taking as long as you wish.

The story line isn't really important It is timed, in the sense that if you achieve the goal within a certain time, you are rewarded with goblets - Gold or Silver - wich will give more points - and look better on the map, lol. If you take a bit longer, you get a silver one. This is a nice matching game with a slightly unusual matching scheme that hooked me by its sheer difference. I finished it today! The frame is always the same - in Oriental Dreams you match the balls of the same color on the board and when you fail to vanish the three balls with one move the new balls appear.

The minigames that pop up 7 Wonders: Magical Mystery Tour so often are also not particularly challenging and have been done before in other games.

  2. Other Match-3 games using the same matching premise; for instance Wonderlines - not currently available here, or the Token Path puzzles in Ancient Quest of Saqqarah - the Temple of Bast.

It's far from being a short game due to the fact the challenge's of getting all the trophy's and gold cups on each level will prevent you from shutting down the game until you win! The M3 portion has some boards with embedded puzzles, so you're not necessarily just trying to clear the marked "runes" from the board with your matches, but may have to assemble a smaller puzzle or item within the game board to win.

  3. Smaller see-through balls in a cell show where new balls will appear if your next move doesn't result in a match. Date published: Rated 5 out of 5 by scm8 from Love this game!!!! Bought the game when it first came out a year or more ago?
