I enjoy the game BUT 1/5
The last two releases don't give you your earned life or booster after watching the videos. When you "X" out AFTER it is all finished, you get a message saying playback cancelled and you don't get credited.
Todo iba bien, pero desde hace varios días cuando abro la aplicación, al presionar "jugar" aparece otro cuadro de diálogo de SINCRONIZACIÓN y se tarda más de 10 minutos para "sincronizar" me desespera y cambio de juego, pues es demasiado tiempo ¿Podrán solucionarlo?
Getting support group to respond to my question 1/5
I’m on level 400 and lost everything. I do not want to start over and loose everything I had I wrote to the support group twice since later part of March and have not received any answer
Mystery match 1/5
By love the gsme
I have been having trouble with this game ever since I updated. The update was an apple update and now I cannot get on the game without waiting hours and days to play. This is on my I pad. What is going on?
Fun game 5/5
Enjoying this match game so far!
Fun but costs money 4/5
By Betsy Love
Fun game but many levels are almost impossible without buying extra moves
Used to be a favorite game 2/5
I used to love this game - but in the last couple of updates, they’ve made it impossible to play offline as it has to be connected to “update” and “download” and “sync” every time it is opened for no discernible reason. If they could fix it so it just starts offline I’d go back to a 5 star rating because it really is a fun, quality match 3 game.
I love this game. But people are right the game seems to want you to buy buy and buy. Most people don't have the money to do this. This is why they play the free games. It would be nice if you could think about them and find a way to let them get free coins. The people that buy now will still buy what they need. They have the money and they have no patience.

There’s no way to earn coins so when you get to higher levels there’s no way to beat them without buying coins. 10 coins is $.99 and a power up that you can use once is 12-16 coins. So if you want to play this game get out you’re credit card and prepare to use it frequently because these game developers are very greedy
support in-app purchases on games YOU ENJOY! 4/5
It’s a fun game and I rarely make in app purchases for those who’ve complained about this in their reviews. I’m in the mid to high 600 levels and have probably spent a total of $10 on this game. Those purchases have been made, because I’ve been way too impatient to wait for my next round of 5 free energies or I’ve played the same level for days/weeks and have decided to buy a boost to help me move along quicker...and again, that’s been extremely rare. And for those complaining about the costs for boosts, you should think about where that money is going. It’s going to the game developers who’ve created this app that you enjoy playing and to the platform that’s offering the app for you to download and use. If you are really against supporting those who’ve spent the time creating, developing, launching, and marketing this game or others you enjoy playing then perhaps you should stop buying books, going to the movies and buying digital copies (you’re probably the ones who enjoy illegal ways of watching at no cost to you, for YOUR principals only, right?), going to amusement parks, museums, concerts, etc. Believe it or not, it’s the same principal and complaining about making a .99 cent purchase for a game you enjoy playing and supporting is mind boggling.
The only issue I do have with the app is that they took away the posters and all my progress towards them has been stopped. The game is fun, but I think that working towards extra rewards is what MADE the game and by taking the posters away...it’s lost it’s true fun for Me. It was also very annoying and extremely frustrating in MysteryMatch that instead of having only 1 poster to work towards completing and receiving your reward for that completion, you had 6-7 posters at a time and very rarely (if ever) got rewards for them. For example, I had 7 posters—1 completed, 2-3 that needed many pieces to complete and then 3-4 posters that only needed 1-3 pieces left to complete them. So imagine my surprise and anger when I wrote CS to only find out that they decided to stop using the posters as extra rewards/incentives for the customers. I can’t imagine too many free rewards or revenue loss was the reason for getting rid of the posters. One would assume that would give their customers/players extra incentive to make in app purchases, so they could win a level and finally get that poster piece they were working towards. I wrote MM’s Customer Service and never heard back with why they did this, if they were going to reinstate them (and our progress) or what incentives they were going to offer their players to keep the game exciting and fun.
No moves available at the beginning of a level 1/5
Very disappointed with the quality of the game. Started a new level and right from the start there wasn’t a single move available.
I cannot say too much yet. I just got the game today and already I am being asked for a review. So far so fun. I will get back to you later.

Very fun and yet sometimes frustrating because I don't have power ups. Can't afford to buy them but very much enjoy this game.
SUPER GAMEPLAY 5/5
A very engaging matching game with a twist! I just completed all the levels and have very much enjoyed the story line along with employing logic in attaining each level. Sure, there is a degree of luck in getting some matches, however even there, there is a degree skill in choosing the right match to complete any given level. I am anxiously awaiting the sequel to this fantastic game!! 5/20 update.... Just completed the game again and can't wait for more levels to appear. The story line has been fun to follow and makes a great game even better. Please don't stop ! 1/11/16 update keep the levels coming. This is my favorite game.👍2/13/17. Best game available!!!keep it coming. Please! Thanks!1/111/18 Still my favorite game ever!!!
Actually the game is a 5 Star 4/5
It’s the UI I have issue with, I don’t buy lives on any game at anytime ever, and that goes for boosters. So I have to endure a 30 second ditty no big deal... unless you don’t get the free life you were expecting. This happens all the time and it’s a little frustration. Other that that I really like the game... I’m over the little story you try to get people to follow actually don’t even know or care about it and close it out every time.
Update - Lost progress 5/5
After getting in touch with tech support my problem was immediately addresses and fixed. Very happy!
After the latest update all my progress has been lost and I have gone from Level 500+ to Level 1 and lost all my poster pieces. This needs to be fixed or that’s it for me and I’ve really enjoyed playing it for more than 2 years
Developers: Please consider ad revenue options 5/5
By A Healthier Me
The game is fun until level 65, which runs out of time while gems drop oh-so-slowly. I will do a one-time purchase of fun games (hello, Angry Birds!), and I will willingly watch a video to make progress in an app (hello, Smule!), but I won't, on principle, make in-app purchases. Please consider other ways to make a profit on your game while not hurting consumers.
On another note, the storyline is way too silly.
Update, three years later: The storyline eliminated many of the silly anachronisms that bothered me at first, and the app added video ads to aid progress, so now I like this game much better. I agree with the reviewer that having to scroll down each time to work on 1- or 2-star levels is annoying. Also, I have beaten some of the levels dozens of times without ever coming close to getting 3 stars and wonder if it is even possible to achieve my goal of 3-starring everything. Overall, it is a great game.
Love the game 5/5
By mom's fun time
Great game, challenging at time. I never buy lives just keep working at it. Some levels take time & patience but you will get thru it.
Move the fingers off the game 4/5
This game would be easier to play if you kept your fingers off the game board! It’s interfering with my game play, messing up my strategy and really reducing the number of moves I have. Puh-lease....buy your own game if you want to play it so bad.
Fix what’s crashing the game please 5/5
I love this game and it’s amazing and I am so hooked to it. But lately it keeps on crashing and kicking me out of the game and exiting the whole app. Please fix what ever is wrong.
What happened? 2/5
Update: so it still does the same thing...throws me out when you get get your extra life. I get the life, I just have to restart the game. This is a glitch in the game. Yes my game is up to date.
Oh, and I freaking hate the smoke bombs.
So the last couple of updates have some snags. This latest update just makes it worse. When you get your free boost, it locks up and you have to close the game, thereby losing the boost. The last couple of updates had similar issues, the game is causing me to lose my interest.
Great game! Fun, addictive,challenging!
The ad on Facebook for this game lead me to believe there were puzzles other than the match-3 format. Alas, it's just another match-3 game. Deleted.
A lot of fun but.... 4/5
The game still crashes by going all white 50% of the time when I watch an ad to get a free boost. I wish they would fix that! Yes, I have the latest update.
I don’t know what happened with this game. But it constantly keeps crashing. Very annoying. If it’s not fixed, I will have to uninstall.
Get with it. 1/5
Hate that I don’t play this game since it’s only vertical - I only play games in horizontal mode. Pity - I wonder why you do this?
My iPad is easier to play if your games would be landscape position. So I deleted this one too!
Mystery Match 2/5
This game do not satisfy my spectations withthe information offered!
Why must I sync? 2/5
Why do I need to sync the game every time I want to play. So on long road trips when it would be ideal to play ... I can't. Can't sync on the middle of the highway. Pisses me off. Then at home when I'm connect via FIOS which is normally fast as sh** is super slow. So, tell me, why do I need to sync?
More Mysterious 4/5
I would like to have more mystery, and story.
Good game! 4/5
I have been playing this game for a couple of months and I really like it. I have never purchased anything...you just need to be patient and eventually you can pass the level without boosts. My only complaint is when there is an offer for a free game, often I will watch the video and then get the white screen of death. At that point there isn't any way to go back to the game unless I reboot my iPad.
But will the mystery ever end?
Great game, give it a chance 4/5
There are, probably, thousands of games with the basic tile switch/match format. All these games are pretty much identical, at the core. The game looks good, has smooth gameplay, and an interesting narrative. I appreciate when a developer relies on the game to draw in players, rather than packing the game the over the top, unnecessary bell and whistles. Play it as a time waster or deep dive into the story.
One suggestion though, try not to use the boosts early in the game. SAY NO TO BOOSTS !!! Outplay gives you a taste for free, hoping you will become reliant, and agree to purchase these boosts in the future. If you are willing to spend a significant amount of money, that's cool, but if you don't the game may become frustrating very quickly.
Very addictive! 5/5
A couple of minutes worth of play and I was hooked...
Please update! 3/5
This game constantly kicks me off. I’m almost to the point of deleting it.
Plays well, very enjoyable.
Mystery Match 3/5
By Carries cats
Ok, I have to agree with one of the reviews: once you get to a certain level of this game, it does “force you to pay” for more coins so that you can get to the next level. For that reason, I can’t play it anymore. Also for that reason, I had to modify my review as well.
Nice escape from a hectic day! 5/5
Very relaxing when I need a break!
I love the game and highly recommend it, but it won’t let me play anymore it says I need to update but App Store says its already updated ): please help and I will give 5 stars
App is crashing 1/5
Don’t know if anyone can help but every time I watch a video to be able to start the level with a free boost the app completely crashes every time. Please fix this.
can’t get free bonuses 3/5
every time i try to watch a video for a free advantage he app crashes. extremely disappointing. otherwise great game
Watching paint dry is more exciting than this game.
Fun Game 5/5
Enjoy playing this game. Like having a bit of a story line to go along with the play. I just wish the powers that be would allow you to revisit the narrative afterwards from the beginning of the game if you choose.
Fun. Some levels take more time. It just takes more time on some levels. Not a problem for me.
Love the game but... 4/5
So I'm modifying my review of this game. I'm done complaining about this game trying to force you to buy more moves. They always will because they want to make money. Fair enough. Just don't do it. You'll get there eventually. Besides, its more fun to keep trying and to wait for more lives and to keep trying again than it is to be done with the levels and have nothing to play for weeks while you wait for an update. That being said, here is my suggestion for improving the game...a game that I like very much by the way! When I finish all the levels, sometimes I would like to go back and complete some levels that I didn't get 3 stars in. So I scroll, and I scroll. Let's say I go back and finish level 832. When I complete it, I REALLY WISH THE GAME WOULD BRING ME BACK TO THE MAP WHERE I LEFT OFF...AT LEVEL 832. Now it takes me all the way back to the top of the map and if I want to go play some other older levels, I have to scroll...and scroll...and scroll some more. Each time I finish an older level, it brings me back to the top of the map. Why not introduce the feature that brings you back to where you were AND include a "back to top" button that would take you to the highest level you've completed once you were done playing older levels? Your players would be so happy if they didn't have to scroll and scroll and scroll each time they just wanted to go back and play some favorite levels. Please consider this option.
Patience is a Must! 3/5
The game is fun and some levels are harder than others. It does get frustrating when it takes more than a week to get through a level. I refuse to purchase anything just to get to another level. So beware this game can get frustrating at times, especially when some of the levels are timed and the game drags a little as the timer keeps on ticking! Patience is a must when playing this game.
Mystery Match 5/5
Love the game so far and with no issues . I give it 5

By Nc ricki
Enjoyable to play.
Good stress reliever 5/5
I like this game for decompressing at the end of the day. I play a couple levels, and haven't made any purchases. If I get Tia point I am required to make a purchase to advance, I quit for the day, and start again the next day.
Mystery Match 3/5
Can't get past level 545😳
Addictive Game 5/5
I recently downloaded the game and now I cannot stop playing it. The graphics are great and the story line too. It will be great if there was some reward videos to get extra lives and power ups more often. I am in level 43 and I haven't bought any power ups. You just need to be patient to pass a difficult level.
