MumboJumbo’s 7 Wonders: Magical Mystery Tour HD ($4.99) is an all-new followup to the popular match-three game, 7 Wonders. In 7 Wonders: Magical Mystery Tour HD, players will take a journey to sites of legend like Camelot, El Dorado, Atlantis, Shangri-La, and more.
Match-three games are one of the most common game types in the App Store, so any newcomer to the genre needs to have something special to make it stand out from the crowd. Luckily, 7 Wonders: Magical Mystery Tour is a game with unique elements that keep gameplay exciting and addictive.
The goal in 7 Wonders: MMT is to match every rune on the board at least once, while also collecting building blocks that are used in between levels. You must do all of this before the time runs out. This game takes advantage of the iPad’s multi-touch capabilities, and will allow you to move two runes at once.
Because of this, gameplay is never frustrating or even particularly challenging, but plenty of power-ups keep things interesting. Whenever a match of four or more is made, a power-up is dropped on the board.
These power-ups clear an entire row of runes. There are also additional power-ups, like the bomb (self-explanatory) and the chameleon (turns into any rune). These are unlocked when building wonders and progressing through the game.
Between levels, collected building materials are used to fill in each wonder. Creating wonders unlocks new powers, keeping the game dynamic at all times. There are also mini games that are unlocked when playing, which break up the monotony of clearing runes.
Thanks to tons of power-ups, there’s always plenty going on in the game. It may sound unusual to hear that a match-three game is exciting, but this one definitely is.
It’s a must have for puzzle lovers and players who have enjoyed the other games in the series.
