The Treasures of Montezuma 4 is a casual match 3 game that practically doesn't bring almost anything new to the genre - but that doesn't mean the game is bad. While the only difference from other match 3 games is different upgrade system and graphics, this game still is a good casual fun - it's obvious the overused gameplay formula still works.

What's unique there is a motivation to match more groups of blocks with the same color consecutively. That triggers special totem events that does something to the game board, destroying the blocks or changing their color.

There's about hundred levels in basic story mode but after you beat this, there's also a Quest mode with even more levels - you don't have to worry this game would be too short.

I'd specify the target group to people who want to relax but don't want to play free game with microtransactions and ads (like Candy Crush Saga). If you belong into this group, The Treasures of Montezuma 4 is a nice pick on sale for you. Others, looking for some more original match 3 game, I'd recommend checking Claws & Feathers, also by Alawar Entertainment.

Game Series

The fourth installment of the "Treasures of Montezuma" game series. Previous installments: "Treasures of Montezuma," "Treasures of Montezuma 2" and "Treasures of Montezuma 3."

Game Visual/Audio

There isn't much can be said about the game's visuals asides from that they're nicely done. Pretty much the same thing can be said about the game's audio. The visual and audio can be adjusted in the game's option menu.


The objective of this game is rather simple. Match 3 or more tokens (horizontally or vertically) to clear them from the board. The scoring varies from how many tokens has been matched. Also, how much time is left on the timer.

There special bonuses to help making matches a bit easier. There are totem bonuses and token bonuses. These bonuses can be unlocked at certain point in the game. Gold coins are required to purchase and upgrade them. Gold coins are earned from playing the match 3 levels. There is a negative side in having totem bonuses because it requires the same color tokens to be matched two or three more times before it becomes activated.

There are two different game difficulty modes to choose from: Casual and Expert. The only difference between these two difficulty modes is how fast the timer depleted in the timer bar.

There are three different game modes: Quest, Story and Puzzle. Story mode is already unlocked but Quest and Puzzle game modes are locked. Quest game mode can be unlocked only after the Story game mode is completed. The puzzle game mode becomes unlock after completing the first puzzle in the story game mode.

In the story game mode there are over ninety-eight levels altogether. Seven different totems with fourteen levels each. The first totem is unlock, while the remaining totems are locked, completing the totem will unlock the next one.

In the puzzle game mode there are eight different puzzles to solve. These puzzles come with a collections of items. Completing the puzzles will unlock them.

In the quest game mode contains series of task objectives that needs to be completed.

All of the match 3 levels can be replayed for a better score.

[Please do note that you can continue playing when the timer runs out. You won't earn any coins to upgrade the bonuses. This only applies to the story mode part of the game.]


There are total of five different trading cards. You only get the three of those cards from the game. There are several ways to get the rest of the trading card: Purchased from Steam's Market; Trade with friends; Booster Packs and it's Booster Pack Creator. This feature is only available Steams version of the game.

Final thoughts, it's an okay game, there's nothing much to it. As for the game's replay value it's low. I would recommend this game for those who enjoy playing match 3 games. Also, I wouldn't recommend buying this game at the full price.

Got this game for 0,62 € on sale and it was worth every cent.
First when I started it, I was flashed by the Intro; beautiful story, ok graphics, beautiful music.
Levels are entertaining, some are quite challenging and some additional rewards motivate to keep playing even after finishing the main story.
Gameplay is action-packed with cool sounds and flashy visual effects, which makes it pretty fun.
I can recommend it and I think it would be also worth its usual price of 6,99 €.

Would love to say it's a good pastime. It's not because it's lacking in originality of course, but this game is full of little problems that make the experience less relaxing than it should be.
The graphics are beautiful, but the various power-ups and backgrounds tend to quickly make the board confusing. This is a major issue to me because I'm not playing 'Where's Waldo', I'm playing a match-3.
The music is fine, but after a while it'll either stop playing, or it'll go on a one-second loop which makes things worse. I'd recommend to just disable it. The English is pretty broken from time to time. I'm pretty anal about that. Even more when it gets in the way of understanding what you're supposed to do. Loading times are really long for a mostly 2D game. CGI scenes are amateurish at best.
Story mode is a bit too long (took me nearly 10 hours to finish), while Quest mode, which is unlocked by finishing the story, has nothing special to it. The game expects you to finish it with bronze trophies and then redo all levels to finish them in gold. Yeah, sure, like I have time to do that. Of course it's fine if I'm adopting this as one of the games I run when I'm bored, but this isn't going to happen, due to all the problems mentioned aboved.

I still liked the game overall, but there are better alternatives out there. Only buy if on sale. Will keep on 'not recommended' for now, I'll revisit in a few months if I've ended up playing this on a regular basis.
