Right-click and set the quality to Low otherwise it's not possible to get 3 stars on lots of levels no matter how many times you replayed them.

Just do it and see. Levels which were impossible to get 3 stars now become possible. I kind of suspected it would be something lame like this holding me back.

My only criticism is that no matter how fast you get a level done, you never get enough time to get 3 stars on it.

I played a little of this, then played and got all the medals for the sequel, then came back to this one. I noticed there are a lot of the same levels in this, with the time being different. For example, level 29 in this game is the same as the sequel, but where the sequel you have almost 17 minutes to complete it, you only have 7 minutes in this one. Why the huge difference. As I have said in my other review, the game has a problem with time, because of the randomness of the colors and power-ups, which can lead to different time completion for every play, no matter how fast you go. I suggested you revisit some levels to ad more time, or add extra time to the time power-up. But now I'm thinking that maybe you should add an extra feature that produces an extra power-up as a reward for the number of combos you hit, which might come in handy for spots that take a long time to uncover. Anyways, good game.

great game but I feel it's imbalanced somewhat with the levels.
I finished the first third and last third and every other level 3 stars except level 29. does the difficulty raise each time you 3 star? either way it's good. this shouldve been front paged.

I was surprised by the initially low rating of this game. Though the initial levels are easy, the addition of many elements makes it more challenging to keep 3-star performances towards the middle. It's a good refreshing turn from the candy crush/bejeweled games.
