Around The World 2.0

A simple but entertaining travel-themed match-3 game
 
2.0 (See all)

Many people love to travel. If you are one of them, then you may like this travel-themed game. Its aim is to match three or more blocks featuring the same color and image. All of them are related to traveling, hence the name of the game. Thus, you will need to match groups of cameras, luggage, sunglasses, suns (oddly enough, suns are featured in gray color), airplanes, palm trees and so on. Once you match a set of three of more blocks, these will disappear and leave blank spaces that will be occupied by adjacent blocks. This way, new sets can be matched and your score will increase.

But it is not as easy as it sounds. First, you only can move the blocks downwards; moving them backwards is not allowed. This limits the possibilities of matching blocks. Also, the game is timed by a plane which is slowly flying towards its destination. However, each time you match a set of blocks, the plane goes back. The distance it steps back depends on the amount of blocks matched.

The game is divided into several levels, each a little more difficult than the previous one. All in all, it is an entertaining matching game, but don't expect to learn anything about geography or traveling. The shareware version allows you to play the game for about 45 minutes. If you like the game and want to play it without restrictions, then you must purchase a license.
