Platform: Nintendo DS.

'I found this game highly addictive and although at first it appears to seem quite easy, don't be fooled, even by day 20 out of the 80 days you find it more difficult I would say this is a game you just can't put down. My rating for this would be 5 out of 5.

Around the World in 80 Days takes you back to the exciting times of exploration and discovery in the late 19th century in this addictive “match 3” game. Prepare yourself for a spectacular puzzle adventure on land, on sea and in the air as you accompany the English daredevil Phileas Fogg and his faithful servant Passepartout. It’s up to you to solve puzzles and collect objects that will help you with your journey and win the bold wager.

Around the World in 80 Days for Nintendo DS is no adventure game in the traditional sense. Rather, it combines the popular “match 3” genre with an exciting story. Shift around adjoining game tiles to form groups of three or more rows of the same color. The clock shows you how much time you still have left to complete the level. Move all the objects to be collected to the bottom of the gameplay area by removing the game tiles below. However, watch out for the walls, blocks of ice and hidden game tiles that could make life very difficult for you.
