  • Variation on a Classic Jun 29, 2017

    By Orafaun
    There are a ton of match 3 games out there but this one stands out from the crowd. The power-ups change the rules a bit and the final goals gives you some motivation and something to work for. Also, the art style is quite nice.

    Absolutely love this game n beautiful graphics. However is extremely hard to make even a single alien. Would be great with different difficulty modes. I love the blitz part aswell tho time is very short. I watched 36 adds yesd to save up sparks u need to play blitz n i came on tday to play n u guys took them all😈 thats not fair I earned those watching mostly the same damn add 30times in a row pls give em bk. Need a part2. Icandy games r mostly all good games best graphics. Ben playing 4 yrs

    Played it years ago and I always come back to it. However, I only have one alien unlocked.... The classic mode is a little too hard to make progress (forces you to spend gold on boosts). Wish there's a mode that's blitz but not timed. I'd play that all the time.

    Unbearably difficult and meaningless with very little progression. It's a puzzle game, but the map is flooded with so many types of items that it takes 5+ moves at most times to get a match, with very limited energy; difficulty getting crystals in the first place to get more energy. It's obviously a cash grab to get people to buy gold and power ups. Honestly could've been way better executed while having difficulty, but as it is now, it's like pulling teeth due to many poorly executed mechanics.

    I found the game challenging and interesting at first, but after a while the number of bots got ridiculously high making it imposible to enjoy. Too much trouble to evolve into an alien, and the alien does not helps you on the game.

  • Fun, but limited Aug 10, 2015

    By Sparky113
    Game structure is fun, of sometimes frustrating, but without making purchases you're limited to achieving maybe level 4 or 5, which means you basically never get very far. My wife and I both played this game for almost a week and the only way to get even one alien was to play tons of games to build up power-ups and then use them all in one game. Then you're back to square one. There's no way I want to waste the amount of time needed to collect 24 aliens that way. On to a new game.

  • Only fun if you are rich. Apr 7, 2013

    By MafuRock33
    This game could have been awesome, but it has been carefully engineered to require players to spend LOTS of money if you want to have fun. I spent about 10 bucks, and it didn't get me so far, I am deleting this now before I waste any more money on it. TO DEVELOPER: I really like your style, but I would rather spend a fair price once for a quality and COMPLETE experience than download a 'free' game that just tries to use psychological tricks to get you to pour more and more money into it. Lame.

    I have been playing this game for years now. Definitely one of the most challenging match three games in the app store.

    It's a great game. Really challenging. Almost impossible to get an alien. Been playing for years and still haven't gotten one. My only complaint is that it's too hard to evolve into an alien. Otherwise I love the game. Needs new update making it a little easier

    Extremely addictive and entertaining. You have to grind a little bit to get the aliens, but it''s very satisfying to see all your hard work pay off. However, I wish there was something else to do after you unlock all the aliens. Pretty fun overall.

    There is a very annoying glitch. When you try to share the results after a game in facebook to get extra gold, this app starts popping up facebook screens infinitely. So you have to force stop the game, not sure if your rewards after the game finish will be saved or not.

    Good game, but I bought a power-up which explicitly stated that doing so would also remove ads. All ads are still there, and there's no way in the game to contact the developers. If I had known the promise of ad removal was false then i wouldn't have bothered.

    i love the game and would give it 5 stars but since i got a new phone, despite logging into my account and having unlocked a lot of aliens already, they still start me out fresh without my progress. i checked my achievements and it lists everything i had previously done, including all the aliens i had, but they all remain locked. why???

  • Fun, but too hard without IAPs! Mar 24, 2013

    By retrol3um
    The concept and gameplay are great and addicting, but it's WAAAY too hard to win a round (i.e. evolve a creature to the final stage) without shelling out for in app purchases! I kind of like the challenge of trying to win without purchases (it involves strategically losing a lot of rounds), but most people will probably be too frustrated to attempt this. I think it can be made a lot more FUN and less frustrating if gaining crystals (the energy that allows you to make moves) was easier to do. As it stands, though, I haven't even unlocked ONE fully evolved creature or gotten past level 5, and that's pretty annoying for so many hours of gameplay!

  • Deceptively Difficult Feb 5, 2015

    By Jiece21
    Smooth gameplay, great art, solid sound design, and an interesting selection of twists on the classic "Match 3" genre. That said, it's incredibly unsatisfying to have to farm items in order to obtain an alien - the perceived end goal - instead of doing it purely through proper planning and a hint of luck. The sheer quantity of different object types to match up make it borderline necessary to use a chunk of your items if you want to "win" by obtaining an alien - this pressures you into buying gold / unlocking other mechanics, which feels a bit too "pay2win" for my tastes.

  • Tons of fun at first, but gets frustrating Apr 10, 2013

    By Rosstafari81
    I really enjoyed this game at first, but I have found it very hard to get far and it is very frustrating! I even ponied up a few bucks to get extra gold, and I went through it really quickly. If it actually helped me get markedly further I would consider spending more money but so far it just isn't worth it. We need more opportunities to ban energy. It depletes very quickly no matter how many crystals I get.

  • Sadly Cynical Apr 28, 2013

    By Ancient Toaster
    Alien Hive is gorgeous, well-built, and as some solid gameplay ideas behind it. But the experience is deeply marred by a total reliance on in-app purchases---and not just a few. I bought both the ad-removing IAPs, but quickly realized no serious progress was possible without buying gold. The clock is just too aggressive; money is necessary for any serious play. A major disappointment from the makers of the delightful Sporos, which did IAPs the right way.

    By Bloodspoor
    The game is great but forces you to buy in-app purchases. I paid $15 for in app purchases alone and it still doesn't get you anywhere. The aliens that you are trying to get out have at least 4 to 6 stages and by the time you get to the 4th stage your almost out of turns. I guess shame on me for buying in-app purchases(WHICH WILL NOT HAPPEN AGAIN!) I'm going to keep playing the game until my money runs out then I'm going to DELETE it!!!

  • Terrible update Jan 13, 2014

    By emack10
    This was such a great game until the latest update. I like that you can level up the supreme aliens now, but the new boost system is awful! Before you could choose specific boosts depending on your strategy. Now there are more options, but it's completely random. You can shuffle again if you don't like what they give you, but that costs more gold. You'll deplete your gold supply very quickly trying to get the good boosts. It's really too bad the developers messed up such a fun game.
