Clockmaker on Facebook Games

Updated on September 6, 2014

I've been playing Clockmaker on Facebook

I like puzzle and match 3 type of games because they are simple.

You can play them when you like and come back day and weeks later to find... nothing has happened. The game is just there, waiting for you, undemanding, nothing is expired or spoiled. I get tired of the games which take up more time. Games where you have to come back a few hours later to collect eggs, harvest corn, keep cakes from being spoiled and so on. You also have to wait hours for the game play before you can do anything.

Facebook puts limits on the game and edits out the storyline but the game itself is still fun and slightly addicting

Clockmaker on Facebook does limit the turns you get each time. Five puzzles is the limit set there. If you succeed at the puzzles you can go on without losing a turn (or a life).

Playing Clockmaker is easy, just match the shapes, try to get longer rows and columns and combinations. However, one thing which I don't like is the need to buy (with game credits not real money) bonus power gems from the shop. You do need these once you reach higher levels. The power gems will take out gems in the area and in the same row and/ or column. Still, you can get game credits to buy them just by playing the game. So, it isn't a real hardship

Of course, like all the games on Facebook, you will be nagged for money. I find Clockmaker less nagging than many others, far less money grabbing than the well known games like Farmville, Cafe World, Candy Crush and so on. .

Overall, Clockmaker has become one of my favourite games on Facebook. I downloaded the free trial version of the premium/ paid game and liked it even better.

Buy the Game for the Full Version without Facebook Version Limits

The full game is Old Clockmaker's Riddles and you can buy it from Big Fish Games. If you enjoy the game it would be nice to play it without the influence of Facebook and nagware. Plus, there is a full story behind the game, not available on the Facebook version. (Facebook has an all over edited down version of Clockwork, even the name is shorter).

If you download the free version it asks you to download another software with it. Allow the download because the game won't work without those files.
