Super Collapse! Puzzle Gallery 5 Icon
Addicting
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Jul 10th 2009

I love this series. The puzzles may seem very easy at first, but believe me they do get much harder. There are over 300 puzzles and I have been playing for over 2 weeks so far. The goal is not only to complete the puzzles, but IN THE FEWEST MOVES I also like the fact that you can submit your score globally and see how you stack up. The hint system too is good. I often used it just to check my first moves to make sure I was on the right track. You can use it for as man or as few moves as you want. It is also a game where you can play, stop for a week and pick right up as each puzzle is individual. I find it totally addicting and must work at each one till i figure out the fewest moves!

Return to Mysterious Island Icon
Good take on Jules Verne Classic
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Jul 8th 2009

The game has challenging puzzles, a pretty in depth story and multiple endings which I enjoyed. I found the only thing lacking was a map would have been nice . All in all it is a great "point and click" adventure game, but you still need a keen eye. Playtime is long and stays somewhat close to the original classic story. Definitely challenging!

CLUE Accusations and Alibis Icon
Great Game
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Jul 8th 2009

I always loved the classic clue game but this is much better. Plenty of mysteries to solve with some great added twists. I have been playing for a week and I have still not completed all the cases. Great for the whole family and the replay value is AWESOME!

3 Days: Zoo Mystery Icon
fun light hearted game
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - May 29th 2009

nice light theme yet many challenges along the way. I enjoyed it very much. As light as the theme is some of the challenges were quite hard. A ton of fun

Ashley Jones: The Heart Of Egypt Icon
One of the better Match 3
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Apr 20th 2009

Ashley Jones has very good graphics and a good mix go gameplay. Lots of levels to complete. While it is not entirely original like most match 3, it does offer some different twists with earning power ups and finding in missing artifact in each board. The story and game are definitely interesting enough to keep playing. While at the beginning you think "same ol same ol" it gets better as you go on. I am about 45 levels in, just a little over halfway and I will definitely play all the way through.

Call of Atlantis Icon
Good match 3
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Apr 20th 2009

good solid match 3 game, nothing new, except for the city facts but good none the less as long as you are not looking for something original.

Kudos 2 Icon
Better than the first
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Apr 20th 2009

The good: Kudos 2 has limitless replay value, improved look and a sharper interface. there is a lot of depth to it too! Your friends are more sophisticated in this version with interesting character traits. You can change your avatar as well. Yearly birthday parties etc. The only downside I found to the game is that the work day can get repetitive. If they could spice that up like the evenings it would be a near perfect game.

Coyote's Tale Icon
So So
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Apr 20th 2009

The best I can say about this game is that you have 2 main characters to play and the original subject. You can choose which sister to play and if you would like to find the hidden objects by work or outline. There is a relaxed mode too. The mini games are enjoyable enough and you may skip as many as you want.
But the game is full of corny dialogue and TERRIBLE voice acting.

Emerald City Confidential Icon
Loved this Game!!
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Mar 24th 2009

I found this to be one of the most refreshing, original and hilarious games I have played in ages. It is not the most difficult game in the world, but definitely one of the most entertaining!!!

Around the World in 80 Days Icon
pretty high addiction factor
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Feb 27th 2009

People playing this will see similarities between this and the RISE OF ATLANTIS. Follows the book pretty closely except for the pirates. There were no pirates in the Verne classic. It has good mixing of the game and story and beautiful scenery. A round of match 3 equals one of the 80 days. There are many power ups and it is quite difficult towards the end. Level 81 is killer.

All and all an addicting adreniline game not to be played before bed lol!

World of Goo Icon
Great Game of Physics
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Feb 27th 2009

Amazing Graphics and sound! Lots of character and mind bending puzzles! Very smart Writing. Some puzzles are much harder than you would expect. There is no time limit so you have plenty of time to experiment (which you will need at times) It is thoroughly entertainin, witty and challenging. The only downside or upside depending on your genius level lol, is that it can get very difficult. I have found only the most dedicated can get through with out the strategy guide or tips so don't feel bad if you have to use them. It is not a game to be missed. At least give it a try. One of the most original games ever!

Nightshift Legacy: The Jaguar's Eye Icon
Good for your standard H/O game
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Jan 23rd 2009

Is there anything new here? NO! But they do a decent job of the typical h/o game. There are 6 long chapters and good character games. The mini games are fun . They may seem quite easy at first, but, you can assured they get much more difficult as the game goes on. If you are a H/O nut then you will love this. There is nothing really new here but it does a good job of the standard game.

4 Elements Icon
Great Game
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Jan 23rd 2009

A match 3 a little that is different from the typical Kahuna reef etc. additive and a lot of fun. Not as hard as jewelquest 3. Once you start you want to play right through!

The Magician's Handbook: Cursed Valley Icon
Good Graphics
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Dec 8th 2008

The best I can say about Cursed Valley is the handpainted graphics and audio. The game is too short and some things are very hard to see. There is no randomization in the scenes so you can memorize where objects are. The mini games were just so/so nothing great. I found it just average.

SKIP-BO Castaway Caper Icon
Fun for the first 30 min.
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Dec 6th 2008

If you love skip-bo I suppose you would be happy with this game......but unlike FAIRWAY SOLITAIRE (excellent card game) it is just the same thing over and over again and gets incredibly boring. I certainly wish they would come out with some better card games, the are few and far between. I just found this game incredibly repetitious!

Azada: Ancient Magic Icon
One of the best out there.
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Nov 26th 2008

Ancient magic is a highly entertaining game that has all the good of the original Azada but with some improvements. The biggest being that you can stop and save in the middle of a book without having to start the level all over again. The sound is great as are the mini games and story. My only complaint would be that it is a little on the short side. But that is a small price to pay for how entertaining it is. They are a little harsh on the clicks but the game is not too hard to play. It is refreshing and def. one of the better out there. I esp. liked the Dr. Jekyl and Hide book. I highly recommend Ancient magic and can assure you there will be a 3rd.

Mystery Chronicles: Murder Among Friends Icon
Solid HO Game
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Nov 19th 2008

Mystery Chronicles is a good ho game..but it brings nothing new to the table. The story falls a little flat and it uses far too many cliches. However, the mini games are good (not great ) but def. good. Good music!

by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Sep 14th 2008

Great game.......good graphics, original gameplay, hours upon hours of play. GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY. I would have to say it is now my favourite MATCH 3 out there.

Timed or relaxed play. I am still playing it!

Battlestations Midway Icon
A LOT OF FUN!
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Aug 8th 2008

Great game to play, lots of action, not too difficult but not too easy either. Single player campaign is a blast but not long enough. Woul be awesome if it had lasted longer but still lots of action. Multiplayer is good though! Good controls make it easy to switch between functions. Although all the battles in the game are SEA battles there are enough variety in the battles to make each one unique. Great game multiplayer, great game all around, just make single player longer next time. STILL DEF.

worth the money and you wll have a great time playing. I would rate it an 8/10

Jewel Quest III Icon
great value for your dollar and lots of gameplay
by KEVIN BRIAN, Canada - Aug 5th 2008

I just finished another game and it took me 4 hours. JEWEL QUEST III does not stray two far from the first and each level offers different challenges. YOU can also play in tournament mode. It is plenty long enough and you can replay and game or level in it. Some parts are quite difficult and have a short time limit. I found myself replaying them till i beat them. It is very nice that the gameplay changes with every continent. I found there was noway I could play right through at once and my brain had to take some breaks lol.Def. worth the money in gametime and difficulty. I just wish they would give you a bit more of a time limit. The story is not it's strong point. It is the gameplay. I am hooked enough to make sure I finish it after many breaks!
