So this is a board game simulation, mixed with as said, a columns style puzzle game to resolve conflict. There is no resource management as it were, but you will raise revenue as you upgrade the village into a city and develop new buildings. It's a turn based game that does it's job very well indeed and you won't have to worry about losing chips, dice etc. It's easy to learn but can be tricky to master, but once it grips you, it won't let go easily. This game is fairly addictive (well it was for me) and seeing as how you can save at any time you like in the game, I often found myself meaning to save and quit but thinking, no a few more turns.

In any case, what’s done is done, and we can only talk about the game that BiP Media did make, not the one they should have. And what did they do with Tiny Token Empires? A decent enough job, particularly for strategy and match-3 fans, but not something essential by any stretch of the imagination.

A new take on an old genre, Tiny Token Empires tries to be creative and innovate by splicing two genres together. Unfortunately, the dodgy controls and lack of depth means any time you do put into it isn't ultimately all that rewarding.

Overall, the idea behind Tiny Token Empires is a good one. For those looking for a different way to exercise their Match 3 muscles, or even explore the world of 4X gameplay in a real simple, easy to understand manner, there are worse ways to do it. Given the aggravating controls though, I would simply try to find another way to play it. It's not game breaking by any stretch, but it is certainly enough to make the time spent with these tiny empires more enjoyable to forget.

All in all, it’s hard to recommend Tiny Token Empires for the PS3. Even though the puzzle portions are a lot of fun, they’re not so much better than other games on the market that the frustrations caused by the strategy portion are worth putting up with them for.

Even ignoring these technical issues, the fun of playing the game is a fleeting experience that can’t sustain the entirety of the campaign. The technical flaws make the $9.99 asking price a huge leap of faith on the part of the player. Tiny Token Empires is an interesting experiment and an original idea, but it needs to be reworked in order to increase its appeal. If BiP Media makes another one, here’s hoping that they seriously take the time to make a more technically proficient game that has gameplay elements to help compliment it. However, if you simply must play this for yourself there is a demo available. I would also go so far as to add that you may want to consider buying it on another platform.
