Little Shop - Memories Icon
Impressive!
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

I absolutely adored this game right from the start. It has become one of my favourite Hidden Object Games.

The overall theme is very retro and brought back some great memories growing up in the 70's and 80's.

I loved the graphics and neat storyline. There were lots of choices such as the Lemonade Stand, Summer Camp, High School, College Dormitory, Y2K Party, etc...

I enjoyed seeing the occasional "live" object in the scene including floating paper airplanes and exploding fireworks. It's impressive!

Call of Atlantis Icon
Stunning
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

I was hooked the minute I tried this neat little game. It's actually more of a package which includes Match 3 as well as Hidden Object. Lots of mini puzzles.

The quality of the graphics and animation was superb, I loved the old world feel and historical aspect of it. The scrolls offer neat bits of trivia as choose your next move on the map.

There is a lot of realistic motion in this one which is wonderful including blossoms floating to the ground, water fountains in the courtyard, rain, and lots of gorgeous fish and reeds in underwater scenes.

This game offers a fantastic screen saver with stunning scenery and live motion such as rain, swaying trees, moonlight with the occasional cloud cover.

The music is quite interesting and reminiscent of Yanni which suits the spirit of the Call of Atlantis. It works.

The only issue I had was that it was too easy, I went through it fairly quickly.

Neptune's Secret Icon
Unique
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

Even though this is yet another Hidden Object game, it stands out since it takes place underwater. It is quite a different adventure as you search for hidden treasures in the deep sea.
Keep your eyes open in the murky waters, you'll discover lively fish and floating bubbles throughout the game. The music wasn't bad - occasionally spooky.

If you ever get stuck and need a hint, find the colourful jewels hidden (they sparkle), they will guide you.

One of the most unique aspects of this game was the list, it's depicted entirely in silhouettes. There are no written words which is great for those who are not a fan of lists or have trouble reading.

Although there are no visible timers, it does keep track how fast you go through each scenario.

Annie's Millions Icon
Straightforward
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

You can't help but feel like a million bucks as you play this game. What a great way to spend loads of money without feeling the effects in real life.

Keep your eyes open for interesting objects that come alive in each scenario such as swaying balloons or trees moving in the wind. In some scenes, there will be cars racing by or clouds drifting in the background.

The music was okay but it often became irritating after awhile.
I wasn't all that thrilled with the comic book effect as they played the dialogue between Annie and her relatives. It essentially cheapened the overall game.

Dream Chronicles: The Chosen Child Icon
Superlative!
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

This is a beautiful game with wonderful graphics. The interior of the tree house is stunning, I loved the hanging bed and step down nook by the window. It makes me want to curl up in the sunshine with a good book.

It can be a bit repetitive at times and there are moments when it is too easy.

Overall it is a visually impressive game.

Chuzzle Icon
Full of giggles
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

This is a fun and unique game to play, even young children will get a giggle out of it.

Even though it's a match 3 game, they appear live and their fur sways as they breathe.

A hint: the Chuzzles are ticklish, if you keep clicking on one of them, it giggles and sneezes. On the larger ones, it will belch. Also, if you leave your cursor sitting on top of a Chuzzle, it will blow it out of its face.

The music is a lot of fun, quite upbeat and very retro (think Disco).

If you ever need a break, this is the one to choose.

Sunset Studio Love on the High Seas Icon
So chic!
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

This game is very "Holllywood", full of glitz and glamour. Lots of bright lights and trying to appear so chic.

I found it to be easy on the eyes and the graphics were well rendered. They were not overdone to the point of trying to look serious, rather it's done in a more leisurely style that is quite fun.

It was obvious that the whole point was to simply enjoy yourself which is exactly what this game achieved. It contains a lot of humour and theatrical moments.

A tip: click on the magnifying glass to get a visual hint of the objects. You'll find them a lot faster.

If you are in a bit of a silly mood and looking to try a delightful search game, have a go with this one.

Ancient Secrets Icon
Simplistic
by jennifer gibson, Canada - Jul 25th 2009

Even though I loved the graphics (beautifully rendered), I was a bit disappointed with this game.

It was much too short and fell flat at times. I found it too easy and uninspiring in regards to the story line.

Suitable for kids or for those of you that are young at heart.

The Hidden Object Show Icon
No game show lasts this long
by Sky Yoshimura, USA - Jul 24th 2009

This is a really long hidden object game. It was interesting because there were variations on the searching (ex. the clues would be silhouettes or you have to find the differences between two photos), but ultimately, the game dragged on so long that I got bored. I finished it just to see if anything interesting happened at the end. Nothing did.

Rooms: The Main Building Icon
Interesting puzzle game
by Sky Yoshimura, USA - Jul 24th 2009

This game is like a souped up sliding tile game. Your goal is to get to the exit by sliding rooms (tiles) around in the correct order. The trick is some rooms have special functions or limited access. I really enjoyed this game. If you like games where you figure out sequences and puzzles, you'll probably enjoy this one too.

Search and find on a movie shoot
by Sky Yoshimura, USA - Jul 24th 2009

If you regularly play search and find games, this one will probably be pretty easy for you. I finished this one over the course of a weekend. Still, it was enjoyable enough that I played it again later.

Youda Sushi Chef Icon
Would you make a good sushi chef?
by Sky Yoshimura, USA - Jul 24th 2009

If you like service oriented games where you fill customer orders, you'll probably enjoy this one. Basically, people place an order for different kinds of sushi and you put it together. I enjoy this game because it requires you to remember what ingredients go into each roll (good brain exercise for aging folks like me!). The only problem I had was when my saved games were lost. One time I was up to level 6 and had to start all over. Very annoying.

Braid Icon
Stunning
by zachary johnston, Australia - Jul 21st 2009

A beautifully constructed work of art. The visuals and soundtrack tugs at your heart strings, as does the touching story. Game play is simple at first, but will soon challenge the most lateral of minds. Buy this game - it's a rare treat to have such quality gaming on a Mac for such a low price.
