Bermuda Triangle: Saving the Coral  - Review

Bermuda Triangle: Saving the Coral
Rating: E - Everyone

An interesting spin on the match three games. Players have control of only the top row. Picking a pod will result in that pod descending and being replaced by a pod whose color is anticipated on the top screen. When there is a match of at least three - sparkly nutrients flow down to help the coral grow. If a turn does not result in a match three - pods are released from the bottom. When unmatched pods reach the coral at the bottom, the game is lost.

Players get a choice of three play modes: Story, Timed and Endless.
Story - travel to four different islands and by matching the color pods above the coral you help rebuild the coral.
Timed - 3 minutes to see how high a score you can get.
Endless - starts with the easiest level and goes up in difficulty as players try to amass a high score.

There are additional goodies and baddies to make the game more story-like, but I ignored the snails and squids and focused on the pods.

Fun Factor: A change from the standard match-three
Female Factor: None
Player Friendly: Takes a minute to realize they they are coming from down, not up.
