A Match-3 type of game that isn't really that good and has a VN style story to it.

It's not really bad, but it is not my type of game.

You may enjoy it if you like match-3 games or are a fan of puzzles.

I didn't play much of this game because it's VERY technical and it just isn't fun.

Wishmaster is one of the strangest match 3 games I've ever played.

The mechanics are simple: you can freely move any two tiles in 8 directions (horizontal, vertical, or diagonal) but the total number of moves you have per board is limited. The board has 10 rows of tiles each of which contain a stack, the goal is to clear them all out.
Where the game is weird, is that instead of using gems or stars, this game uses anime portraits as tiles. As a result the board looks very busy and it's pretty difficult to see possible matches. At least there's no time limit.
The main problem is that you only have three lives, and each time you cannot solve a board you lose one of them. Losing all your lives means starting over.
There is a framework story here told in broken English that really doesn't make a lot of sense, and frustratingly you have to click through it every time you lose all your lives and start over.

The combination of limited moves, a visually very busy and distracting board, as well as the very limited lives/retries does not play well with the inherent randomness that comes with match 3 games. I cannot recommend this as there are so many match 3 games that are more fun to play on Steam.

This game currently has an obscene number of translation errors. Sometimes the dialogue is a bit difficult to understand as a result. There isn't that much dialogue though. Mostly this is just a match 3 game with a hilarious premise.

There are no powerups or abilities, hints or shuffles. But, you are not required to make a match with every turn. Every level gains more and more orbs. I've only run out of turns once. But because of how the rows can be emptied, I have lost multiple times because the final matches were not in a perfect row. It isn't hard apart from that bit. You can gain multiple lives (I'm not sure how exactly? I just noticed I gained them) so it isn't an immediate game over.

Overall, not bad for the price. I like what I've seen so far of the plot, and it isn't a bad match 3.

Wishmaster is a match 3 game with anime portraits and a series of very basic story vignettes, in which dumb luck plays a disproportionate role in success. It is possible to complete the same level with every move creating a match, and in one instance have more than a dozen moves remaining, while in another having dozens of tiles remaining when you run out of moves.

There are two main factors that determine success, and neither is within your control. The first is matches caused by falling tiles as you clear the board. As you do not know what tiles will fall, you cannot predict what matches will occur. You may get no matches, a few matches, or even 10+ matches from failling tiles. The second is where the falling tiles get added. Sometimes they are added to existing columns, but often enough they create entirely new columns, which greatly increase the number of moves required to clear the board.

The premise is simple enough: you are shown a series of wishes that people want granted. Each person who wants a wish granted is represented by tiles on the board, which you match to clear the board. When you clear the board you pick one of those wishes to be granted. You are then given an anime portrait depicting the wish being granted, and a few lines of text of the character's reaction. According to the game's story, after 10 wishes your character will die. You are only given three lives with which to grant these 10 wishes, and it's possible to lose them all on the first level with a bit of bad luck.

The gameplay gets repetitve pretty quickly, especially when you have to start over and grant the same wishes again and again. Not that granting wishes is particularly exciting to begin with, a portrait and a few lines of text is hardly worth the effort to clear the board, even on the first level. The music is limited but okay, the sound effects aren't great. The writing is sparse and has a fair few translation errors. Options are basically non-existant; you cannot set your resolution, or change the volume of the music/sound effects, though you can mute them. You can choose between windowed and full-screen, and that's about it.

There are better match 3 games on Steam, there isn't much reason to play this one unless you are really, really into the genre or really, really into anime. Even then I would be hard pressed to recommend this game.

An example of how a game shouldn't be made. Glitchy, repetetive and boring. Not rewarding at all. Music is one extremely annoying track. Just farm your cards and forget about it.

Translation is rough at times, but does not affect gameplay. Smooth interface with cute graphics, I love the art, reminds me of Atlus games. Very forgiving until the end of a level. Tile Mahjong with high beat music.

Awful.

At the start of the game you are treated with a loooooong dialogue that apparently takes place between you and another person, that is barely understandable due to the excruciatingly poor English and loose narration. When the round finally starts, there are no instructions whatsoever, and you are just told to "match 3". DUH. They could have just cut that totally unnecessary and useless intro and instead spent the time on writing some proper instructions for the game!

So anyway, it turns out that you can actually move pieces diagonally as well - something that's pretty unique since other match-3 games usually don't allow that. And you can also move pieces to any adjacent position without having to make a match! Also, each round requires you to eliminate all pieces before you can proceed to the next level. You are given a fixed number of moves to accomplish this; if you can't complete it within this number of moves, you have to restart.

So why weren't we told all this in the instructions? Oh yeah, I forgot there weren't any! The developers were so busy trying to develop a pseudo-anime context (which sucked because the writing and presentation were worse than what a 7-year-old might come up with) - complete with your usual textbook kawaii manga characters and bishonen - that they decided that instructions weren't necessary!

Luckily I got this for free.

P.S. I tried to do some screenshots of the horrible dialogue and narration, but F12 doesn't work in this game. It's a good thing it's windowed though, which makes reaching for that "x" in the corner real easy when you decide you've had enough of this trash.

Grammar is poor, instructions are not clear, music is repetitive. If I had paid for it I would have demanded my money back within 15 minutes of play. Only thing redeeming to me at this point are the trading cards. This ia just a bad game, which reflects poorly on Steam that it is even available here.

The only wish here is to play a different game. This is a basic IOS type puzzle game that you would expect to be F2P on an app store. It has an overelaborate storyline written in broken english. It isn't worth the time it takes to install.

Anime characters because reasons
No instructions because weird dialogue is more important
Cant move peices to spaces not occupied by nothing, making it that if your last 3 peices are in an L shape, you LITERALLY TAKE THE L AND CANT CONTINUE
Once you lose all 3 lives you're given, you have to RESTART THE ENTIRE GAME because if you click continue after losing, you're treated to the last move you made... which was a loss...
Purple Crystal thing talking to Giant Yellow Tree in space because... Anime?
10/10 lost on purpose because no one deserves their wishes to come true :^)

Uhhhhh Uhmmmmm What can i say about Candy Crush on steam :/
Oh wait its not Candy crush, Its Wishmaster :o

Well its good for the first 3 or 4 levels and then disaster strikes
As soon as you lose you are reset right from the start ....
Then you try again, and wolaa again back to the start ....
And then again, And wollaaaa UNINSTALL !

So its pretty basic but not well planned
I would still recommend it - 6/10

There's free versions of similar games like this out there. The level music is pretty sweet, though the main menu music hurts my ears. However, it's not enough justification to spend money on a game like this.
