About This Game

Wishmaster is a game with an interesting and complex history of human desires and about the fact that not everything will go the way you wish. The game includes a part with Visual Novel, where you will learn about the world and the people themselves, and, certainly, about their dreams. The second part of the game is the game Match-3, where you will search for mysterious energy to fulfill all the dreams of mortal creatures. Also you will be able to track your progress in the gallery.

You start the game as a magical creature that was born only a few moments ago and doesn’t know anything about itself. Using the advice of the master and the power of Wishboard, you will fulfill the wishes of the living. But do people really want their desires to be fulfilled? And is it possible to trust a new “friend”?

- More than 30 characters with diverse wishes

- You can decide which wish to fulfill

- Company mode for not one playthrough!

- Mode on time for relaxation

- Gallery with your progress

Not bad, but the only reason to play this game was artwork, that's quite nice.

On the cons side is a very high dependency on random, especially in getting acheivements and in table generation. It took me about two hours of constant game restarting to randomize me characters necessary for completing acheivements.

All in all, I would recommend (but maybe it would be better to wait for some sale)

Wishmaster is basically a Candy Crush clone with anime and a very, very strange "story".

8/10 would read dialogue in different voices whilst recording a video again.

You're Kyuubei in disguise, fullfilling random people wish,
jk, but the setting is more or less like that, you're Wishmaster, some kind of god who can grant wish from hopeless people.

PROS
-Anime
-Waifu
-Decent background music
-Trading Card
-Achievements (not easy thou)

CONS
-Difficulty can make someone lose hope and despair and sorrow and ragequit
-Too random, i mean the people who make the wish, its kinda hard to completely unlock all 32 characters. there's no fixed order on how they will spawn. you need to keep try and try
-Broken english, but still understandable
-Repetitive.

So here we have a transition between match-3 and visual novel. And it's not a very good transition. Considering the match-3 part is not that addictive, the decision to give players 3 lives for a try was a really bad one. It's not the kind of game I will waste my time to start all over, so lots of wishes remain uncovered. But you can see them anyways, just check the guide.

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.

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.

Other people didn't seem to like it but I thought it was cute. Basic game play. Like the anime graphics. The girls are cute, I wanted to collect them all. Wouldn't let me take screenshots though sadly.
