Just to chip in: What a high quality game! I'm very impressed.
I am maybe 15 or 20 levels in and really enjoying it so far. Even the cut scenes are fun and worth watching
It's nice to see a game that doesn't take itself too seriously.
Gameplay wise, this is a gem. I think that calling it a "match 3" game doesn't do it justice, because the game is much deeper. In story mode at least, new mechanics are introduced at a good pace so there is always something new to learn or to revisit and master.
There are some minor issues (erratic difficulty & graphic glitches) but overall this feels like a very polished game. I haven't enjoyed a matching puzzle game this much since, hmm, Puzzle Quest? PQ was an innovative title, imo, yet I think I'm going to get even more play time and enjoyment out of Tidalis.
