Ancient Wonderland - the gods are looking at you!
We are delighted to offer to your attention Ancient Wonderland - a wonderful choice for all lovers of matching games. This game combines addictive match 3 game play and beautiful Oriental environments, which will guarantee you real pleasure for hours.
Sometimes people get a chance to become gods...The question is whether you have the wits and guts needed to grab it!
Your journey in search of Elixir of Life will start at the foot of the sacred Taishan Mount where according to the legends the head of Panku, an ancient god having direct relation to the Creation of the World, is buried. Here you will depart to the fascinating journey in the most gorgeous surroundings one could imagine. You will pass more than 100 exciting levels, each one presenting a task of collecting a certain number of gems by matching like-colored blocks.
The game play reminds that of Magiс Match series or Heroes of Hellas. Each level presents a playfield containing blocks of different colors. Some of the blocks have gems on them. You have to join like-colored blocks in chains of three and more to remove them together with the gems. As soon as you collect all the gems present on the field new ones will appear. This will happen until you reach a determined number of gems, in which case the level is completed. But you have to be careful when chaining the blocks, for there is no way to cancel your actions. This can be a bit annoying, but you get accustomed to the fact rather soon.
The farther you proceed, the more challenging will the levels become. First, you have a time limit, which in some cases is rather tight. Second, some blocks will not be so easy to remove. You will come across wood and stone blocks, which can be removed only if you make matches with the blocks surrounding them, and Question Mark blocks, which turn into regular ones after being included into a chain. Due to
these features some levels appear to be real puzzles.
But in order to balance the difficulties you will be presented with some tools making your life easier. These are called Item blocks. Each time you see a blue block with a hammer, bow, bomb or some other item on it include it into any regular chain and the bonus will be activated. Some of them (for instance, the Yin-Yang sign) are quite amazing in their effect.
Tip: if no gems appear on the playfield, try to make as long a chain as possible. This should help.
After every several matching levels you a get a bonus game - and those are also quite exciting.
The game features three modes - Quest, Puzzle and Add-ons - to maximize the fun and play the one you enjoy most.
A must-be-mentioned aspect of the game is its graphics and sound - and those are terrific. Stunning Chinese backgrounds and hypnotising music will keep you playing for hours - just try it!
