The DRM is horrific and the game is half-broken. You'd be better off spending your money on literally anything else.

After playing this for slightly over a half hour, I couldn't complete a level. Are the levels simply endless? I don't know, but I got rather frustrated in a short period of time.

I love casual games, particularly matching games, but this one falls short of the "Good" mark by a good bit. Skip it, and play something better.

My friend bought me this for $1, presumably as a joke. I played it for about 5 minutes before becoming somewhat bored. I tried to switch to fullscreen and it crashed and broke my sound, and when I tried to restart the device my computer bluescreened. I feel like I lost out here even though I got it for free.

Seriously though, do not buy this game for $10. For $1, maybe. Definitely not for $10.

Its bejeweled, but no surprise there. Has different game modes, but most of them are pretty standard for the "match 3" genre of games. I cant recommend this game unless you feel an intense burning desire to pay to play bejeweled.

On the plus side, nvidia 3d vision works with this game.

Looks like it might be a nice game. BUT:

It's saddled with some extra DRM junk that requires you to activate it on TopWare's servers. TopWare's activation server for this game are DOWN, and seem to have been that way for months.

So I'm forced to play in DEMO mode...

Avoid this and any game with extra completely useless DRM!
It forces us to pirate the game we payed for legally, just so we can play it.

I would have never bought this game, or even known about it, had it not been for a 90% off coupon I got through crafting. I am not really impressed though and wished I had saved my 1 dollar for some other game. Its alright for what it is. Its that same type of game play as, say...Candy Crush, but Candy Crush is FREE! They catch your interest with the 3D and the camera mode but that feature doesn't work very well. The screen moves around whenever you move your head, even slightly and in stead of it staying in the direction you are looking (like it is supposed to) it pops back to center. And its really useless. It doesn't help with gameplay or make it any more interesting, it just rotates the screen back and forth. Who can concentrate when your screen is swinging around? You can turn the camera feature off, but like I said before there are other games better than this that are Free.

As a fan of Bejeweled with about 60 hours clocked in on that game, I tried this out when I snagged a coupon to get it for $1. It's awful in every way. It isn't anywhere near as visually appealing as Bejeweled. It's not as fun. There's nothing about it to make it worth playing or to separate it from the competition. Add to that the horrible Topware DRM added to a Steam game and it's just a nasty waste of $1.

If you like casual puzzle games then you might like this, this is very similar to Bejeweled only not as good IMO.
It uses the same principle, match the gems to destroy them etc and get the best score you can, there is a few different game modes to play but nothing special and this isnt something that will keep you going for hours thats for sure, but it is abit of fun none the less.

Overall, its ok for a few mins gameplay here n there but not the best puzzle game in the world, and personally i wouldnt spend any money on it, opt for bejeweled instead.

I bought it for a dollar. If I wasn't a sucker for cheap games I'd want my dollar back. I don't think that is a lesson I'll ever learn...

There just isn't anything here that another match 3 can't do better. Some of them are even free; check out the Marvel Puzzle Quest here on Steam for a f2p option.

I bought this game with a 90% off coupon so i cant personally say that i got ripped off, but if you buy this game for full or even half price you are most definately getting your money's worth. This overpriced appdiguising itself as a full fledged game is not only boring it is a liar. the gameplay, although there are a fair few modes is simplistic and was done better in 10,000,000. the game tries to sell itself on a 3D gimmick based of using your webcam to track your face and eyes and move the puzzle around accordingly to create the ilusion of three dimensional space and depth. although on their own the graphics are, while not interesting or overly baried, are clean and sharp, but the camera is so bad at the face tracking that the whole game is allways shaking around in a manner that made my head hurt. when turned off on the other hand the game loses any pop it had and the fact that the name itself implies that the game is 3D, selling itself as different because of the 3D loses its purpose.

3/10 just avoid, not offensive necissaraly, there isnt enough to it to be offensive, just a plain bad game.

In the world of video games, if there is a hell it is filled with match three puzzle games.

Now I will preface this review saying I am not the biggest fan of match three games in the first place, but even with saying that, 3SwitcheD is not a good game.

Now I am going to go on and skip explaining what you do in a match three game and focus on what is 'new' here, there are six game modes, 'Snazzy Swap' being your standard game mode that plays like a poorly optimized version of Bejeweled with a combo clock that makes a man/woman's voice go higher and higher as you gain combos till it sounds like he/she is having a real good time from your abilities to match three (And really who wouldn't?)

Outside of the main mode all the other modes of the game... rather suck, 'Falling Stars' is somewhat alright where you start with a blank board and they drop jewels from the top for you to match like a proverbial rat in a cage, but outside of that one the rest are about matching jewels in odd ways such as making shapes or effecting gravity.

The game reports to using "Face-Tracking Technology" which is a fancy word for saying you can turn on your webcam and look around the 3D play-field... but you will never do that because there is absolutely no reason to, the graphics, animations, and environment hold nothing special at all and look mediocre at best with poor optimization, and when you play a match three puzzle game, you are not going to be moving your head to get a better angle, this all doesn't matter anyway because none of it works... seriously, it works for like a few seconds then pops back to normal.

And finally to top it all off it has third-party DRM, you must activate the game using a CD-key on TopWare's servers, so not only is it a bad game, if the servers are down (Like they usually seem to be) you can't even play it, though maybe that is a good thing overall.

Though the description makes this sound like a proper 3D Bejeweled game, the only 3D elements are that the board itself has a very limited 3D effect as you move the cursor around, plus a few other gimmicks. This is little more than a mediocre tech demo copying elements from far better games.

3SwitcheD is a shameless copy of Bejeweled and other games like it. I must say i was a Bejeweled addict back in the MSN days but these are long gone. There are different kinds of modes which probably all are copied like one mode is like "Columns" (a Sega Mega Drive game). I got this game in a bundle but I wonder who would pay 10,- euro when you can play games like this on Flash Game websites? There's absolutely no reason to buy. I'm pretty sure there isn't even a leaderboard (I quit before i could enter one because it was too easy). The worst part is the annoying voice each time you connect 3 jewels saying stuff like "Terriffic", "Great", "Awesome" and ofcourse "Badabingbang" (or something) accompanied by some space trance.

If you get this game you must:
1. Be a Bejeweled addict and want some new scenery.
2. Be rich (well rich enough you don't mind spending money on crap)
3. Be too lazy to go find a Flash game website or don't know how google works.
4. Own all other games on Steam that you can buy with 10,-
5. You love it when a guy encourages you for doing lame stuff.

I rest my case .... Badabingbang!
