Best Windows 8 Apps
19 November 2013
Don't upgrade to Windows 8.1. This developer could not be bothered to make sure their games are compatible, so none of them work with 8.1. They have acknowledged this but are unapologetic.

If you appreciate a high level of polish and visuals (e.g Angry Birds) then you will appreciate the level of detail in this game. My only qualm, the game fools you a little into thinking it's going to have a lot of variety, when it really focuses on one core type of gameplay, but the game is so well polished and executed, and the core gameplay is so good, that it's definitely one of the best on the platform today.

After windows 8.1 this game does not work!
Bought it but can't play it after the update. Please fix!

WAS addictive and fun to play with great graphics, sound, and music. Now if it launches at all I get booted out when I tap 'Start'. No help from tech support. Need a refund.

Fun game, nice game play on my Surface. The main levels are a match 3 type game. There are also a few hidden object puzzles throughout. It is very easy to learn. I think the game could have been a little more challenging, but enjoyed it as is.

This game would be good if it wouldn't randomly restart and you lose all your progress. There is no save option!! It makes you sign in and you end up back at the beginning. Terribly annoying!!

Why is this app trying to get permission to my music and photo library?

Nice game, reminds me of Adera (another Xbox title). The $3 price tag is much much more acceptable than the ridiculous $9.99 this game was selling for a couple weeks ago.
I'm not sure who is pricing these Xbox enable titles, but if developers considered volume over outrageously high prices, they may be able to sell more.

This game is fun and challenging. I like the discovery chapters as well as the sstory.

We love the game, though please fix this bug: play the game for a while on one machine (saves game state), then start the game afresh on another machine. The latter action wipes out your saved state on the first machine

The game is good but there are problems with the cloud saves. I mainly play this on my Surface. I the went to try it on my desktop and my save only had half of my progress. I then went back to my Surface and the save on it had synced to the incorrect save. I had a similar problem earlier when I first installed the game.

Just as addicting as people keep saying. If you like puzzles this is for you!
If you like Bejeweled and Puzzle Quest you'll enjoy this one.

Who do I type to in order to get a refund. Still

Go to desktop and go to device manager, click on display adapter, right click your graphics card and select update driver software, select browse my computer for driver software, click on let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer and select top file and click next. Let driver install and reboot. Games should work again.
4 elements is a sweet and visually dashing logic/puzzle game, a genre we don't exactly swim in great titles for now... however on surface rt there is considerable lag which undemines the otherwise nice gameplay - i'm sure future updates can solve this problem but until than i find this a bit expensive while in its current state
6/3/13: still no updates, expansions for the game, this is a huge letdown

Another game spoiled by a time limit. The timer is too short for some of the puzzles since they are generated at random. Dump the timer and it's a five star game.

If you want to make your Surface time a little less productive, try this game. Just addicting on a PC desktop too. Probably one of the best games in the app store as of this review.

This is a fun game, once you start playing it's hard to stop.

... gameplay, graphics, storyline, cute wizard. Totally seamless, so far. I owned the stand-alone game, & lost it in a computer crash. So it's nice to have it again. WELL worth the small charge. Thank you!

This would be a 5 star game except for one big bug. Cannot play the bonus levels without the timer!!! The relaxed mode option does not work!!!!

Love the game. Played flawlessly on windows 8 on my Asus tablet that runs full windows 8 but just updated to 8.1 and it's no longer working. It loads but then it starts with music and green and orange screen. So frustrating come on. Would like to know if anyone else is having this issue as well. Still gave it five stars because the game is great when its working

Will not work with windows 8.1, so until they fix the game or the windows issue, don't waste your money.

Best $3 I have spent for a while. Combo of maze and a twist of bejewel. Challenging, yet doable. Addictive with out draining your pocketbook.

I got to the hummingbird level and games just crashes, shuts down and returns me to the win 8 start screen. There is no support for this game! Garbage.

Very addicting. Lots of levels and decent challenge
Great Game! Way to go Microsoft Studio!
I love this game for casual play. You can pick it up and play whenever you want without deep involvement. Many different types of games wrapped up into a beautiful game

A simple, enjoyable game that can be enjoyed by all ages.
