I loved this game. The solitaire challenges were great, and I had to "start over" quite a few rounds because the winner in me didn't like the XXXs (this means you lost the round). Winning all of the games in the round never happened for me. Just accomplishing the goals was good enough. I loved the "hero's" tale telling. His voice was perfectly pitched for the story. I didn't explore the "pet" development part, so I can't comment on it. You have plenty of rounds to play so the value for the game is there also. Since this game was released in 2009, I was hoping for a sequel - no such luck yet.

I enjoy this type of game, but I have the same complaints as others. It's very difficult to distinguish blank spaces because of some of the colors. And it doesn't help that the columns aren't highllighted.If you're really into this type of game, you will enjoy it. I gave up about half-way through to save what eyesight I have left.

I Love Nancy Drew Games!!! You have to play all of them if you want a thinky game.The story of this one is very good and i had to make lots of notes to pass trough the puzzles.

Has additional aspects to Match 3 games. Very addictive and super hand/eye coordination needed. But once the game is won - which can take many days/hours, there's no where else left that's new. But we love it!!!

I was pleasently surprised at how much I enjoyed this game, although, to be honest, I did find the book bits between levels a trifle annoying. I enjoy that I'm not left making matches where i don't need them just to try and get the last tile.
