Request for my wife here.
She's a big fan of Match 3 games, but hasn't really liked the translations of them onto the iPad.
She likes them because they're kind of mindless and she can just sit and unwind.
I introduced her to Hero Emblems and she really loved it. In fact, she's played it through about 5 or 6 times.
She'd like to find something else, though. So I told her I would ask here and see if there were any other similar recommendations.
1) I introduced her to Puzzle Quest and she didn't like it. Too much running around and not enough Match 3. Liking Hero Emblems, she's not against some RPG elements in the game, but she didn't like the balance between the two in Puzzle Quest. "More Match 3, Less RPG," she said.
2) While she handled the final stages of Hero Emblems fine, where you did have time limits, she's not a huge fan of speed and time pressure. Because of that, along with all of the in-between stuff you have to do, I'm hesitant to show her You Must Build a Boat and The Number (too lazy to go track down the exact name). Besides, are those universal or would they be 2X on the iPad?
