Super Collapse! Puzzle Gallery Icon
Highly Addictive
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Jul 7th 2009

I have played all versions and am now on puzzle gallery 5. They are great. They start off simple and get much harder as you go long. Hours of playtime. The trick is not to simply complete the puzzles, but in the fewest move. The hint system is good because you can stop it at any time and have it show you as much or as little as you want. You can also submit your score globally and go back and try to perfect puzzle you didn't finish in the fewest moves. Great game that you can leave for awhile, go back to and not have to remember where you are lol. I love them!

CLUE Accusations and Alibis Icon
Great Take on the Classic Clue Game
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Jul 7th 2009

It has the same cast of characters but with hidden ogject thrown in as well. People who like both board and H/0 games with find something here. The graphics are are good and sooo many cases. It's replay value is almost endless! You have plenty of time for each case (2hrs) but beware you are penalized a fair amount of time for mistakes. A great combo of board meets who dunnit meets H/O ! Hours of fun!

Call of Atlantis Icon
Great for the same old Formula
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Mar 16th 2009

IF you love MATCH 3 you will love this. It is done well in every way. There is only one problem. The premise is the same as every other MATCH 3 out there. I love a good one eg. Acncint Secrets of Saqqarah. This is good but nothing much different from the typical MATCH 3. IF your are addicted to match 3 buy it. If you are like me and like a good original one every once in awhile ...skip it. GOOD GAME.....JUST NOTHING NEEW AT ALL!

Laura Jones and the Gates of Good and Evil Icon
Amusing Game
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Mar 16th 2009

The Game has nice graphics and a lot of fun situations. You can replace the mini games with alternate challenges which is a nice twist. Once unlocked you can replay the mini games. Enjoyed the game but like to many now it is too short.

The puzzles are not too difficult.

All in all I enjoyed it, just wish it had been longer.

Prince of Persia The Two Thrones Icon
8.5 out of 10
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Jan 26th 2009

good actors voices and good characters. The bosses and chariot races are cool and the quick kills are great. The dark prince himself playbe better on the mac than on any of the other game consoles. It is a big improvement over the previous two games. The game offers challenging combat,stealth and platforming. The graphics may see a wee bit outdated but the PRINCE OF PERSIA has always been about guiding your character through obstacles , avoiding boobytraps etc. Now they are making a movie of it too.

Well worth buying!

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Hard Evidence Icon
Good... missed the excellent mark be being too short
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Jan 25th 2009

Great game. Interesting stories. My type of game totally and it is fun to be with the charcters we have come to know so well after all the year. It really is FAR TOO SHORT though.

I certainly hope the next one will be much longer and I will for one buy it.

4 Elements Icon
A fun better than average match 3 game
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Jan 23rd 2009

This is a fantasy themed match 3 and is a refreshing change from the typical match 3. Great visuals and it actually has a story incorporated into it. The only flaw I found was that it could end up being a bit repetitious but that happens with all match 3 excluding
Ancient quest of Saqqarah which has raised the bar. It is a lot of fun from start to finish though and if this is your genre, you will love it!

Uno Undercover Icon
Great take on the classic Uno Game
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Dec 17th 2008

Uno undercover has many new game cards which really enhance gameplay. It has a humorous spy story to go along with it. It is very creative for UNO. The only thing is sometimes it boils down to pure luck as opposed to strategy. Still it is much more enjoyable that playing regular Uno (esp. with additional cards) and the story line is creative in a lighthearted way.

Azada: Ancient Magic Icon
Loved this Game!
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Dec 15th 2008

A great point and click adventure game that lets you interact with the characters in the book. Fun mini puzzle which you can do when they come up or leave and go back to them. I played the first one too (which was great) but this is even better. You can even leave a book half finished if you are stuck, go to a different book and then back. It really is a lot of fun and I highly recommend it! It has a pretty tough penalty system though.

Jewel Quest Mysteries Icon
Decent hidden object game
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Dec 15th 2008

It has a good story, graphics and music. There are pretty good mini games ever couple of levels. I thought the HIDDEN SWEEPSTAKES made it more interesting. While it tries to combine 2 genres (H/0 & match 3) it hasn't perfected the combination but it is a good idea. There are better H0 games out there and better MATCH 3 out there but it is neat having some of both.

The Hidden Object Show Season 2 Icon
MUCH BETTER THEAN THE FIRST ONE!
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Sep 29th 2008

First off, remember it is a H/O game. The graphics are far better than the first game.

There are many new and different mini games. It is better than the first for a few reason, the carnival scene eg. works far better. The game show host is now in colour and has funny gestsures. It follows the first one but is WHAT THE FIRST ONE SHOULD HAVE BEEN! It has 300 rounds including bounus which is 3 times what the first one had. Try the trial and you will see how many ways they improved over the first. If I have a complaint the only one would be I wish the plot was a little stronger but then again it is as strong as many of the H/0 games out there. IT IS A HUGE IMPROVEMENT over the first and for it's genre I would rate it a 3.5 to 4 out of 5

FATE Icon
GREAT GAME!
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Sep 29th 2008

Fate has great replay value,a transformable pet and many mosters, towns and worlds. There is a great USER interface and lots of surprises to discover. It offers the fantasy fan everything. It is actually a sequel to the first one being released about 4 years ago. It picks right up where the first one left off but has come a long way. The only con I can think of, is lots of bactracking. It is you with your SWORD &SHIELD..............against the many beings.

Ancient Quest of Saqqarah Icon
LOADS OF PLAYTIME
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Sep 20th 2008

This is one game you definitely cannot say is too short. I have been playing it now for just over a week and I am not even a quarter of the way through. Starts out easy enough but boy it gets harder as you level up. There are so many different types of powerup games within this game. I find I try to conquer one at a time while you are in the mode of that game. I highly recommend it for both it's lengthy play value and variety of puzzles. I would almost say it is even too long to finish lol, just because I keep playing into the wee hours.

Agatha Christie: Peril at End House Icon
The Best Agatha Christie Game
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - May 10th 2008

I have played 3 of the Agatha Christie games and this is without a doubt the best one. Having said that it is important to realize it is a seek & find game where the others aren't. The most appealing part of the game is between each hide & seek chapter. There are clue cards and you must eliminate or pick out suspects. As expected it is easier at the beginnng than towards the end. There is an actual story which is rare for the seek games. I wish the other Christie games had been as good!

The Scruffs Icon
great spin on hide & seek games
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - May 10th 2008

This a quirky funny game based on the scruff cartoons. It is original from many games of the same genre and that is what makes it appealing. It is equally entertaining to both adults and older children. The mini games scribbles appears very easy but it is harder than you think to get perfect. After each chapter you find a clue in a picture. I am sure there will be a sequel.

Mysteryville Icon
Enjoyable...a little on the short side
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - May 2nd 2008

I quite enjoyed this game, in fact have already playe mysteryville 2. I found the graphics good quality and the characters fit in with the story very well. There are a good mix of mini puzzles to go along.The story fits together quite well for a (hide&seek) It is not the hardest puzzle out there and a little on the short side but I enjoyed it just the same. I bought one and two and will buy the 3rd. There is no relaxed mode but you don't really need one. Just a nice story all in all!

Bejeweled 2 Deluxe Icon
ADDICTING
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - May 1st 2008

I don't usually go in for these types of games (match 3) but tried it out of boredom. I can't tell you how many hours I spent finishing it. It totally grabbed me and I had to finish it. Give it a try! I have tried other match 3 games since and found this one to be by far the best!

Kudos Rock Legend Icon
Better than the first KUDOS
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Apr 26th 2008

Rock Legends is a much tighter games than the first Kudos. Many avatars to pick from and up to 6 members in your band. Your goal is straight forwart "To Become A Rock Legend. It is still a sims game so that type must appeal to you to enjoy. Each band member has their own personality and traits which are fun. Instead of mini games you have the Songs Creation portion which is quite fun. Get more challenging as the band grows e.g. the expense of rehersal space and the band sounding off. I am still playing and having fun!

Dream Chronicles 2 Icon
Great Sequel!
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Apr 8th 2008

I bought both games 1&2 together and played them one after another and was hooked. They added some new types of puzzles to the 2nd that I really enjoyed, esp. the maze. You must collect many articles to solve the mystery and each level has numerous brainteasers. I found both games a little on the short side and that is my only real complaint. Great graphics, play and puzzles. I don't think it is the type of game I would replay. I would rather wait for a 3rd. I Recommend both Dream Chronicles 1 and 2.

Miss Teri Tale Icon
not the best ......not the worst
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Apr 3rd 2008

It is not a very interesting story and you backtrack to the same 9 houses over and over. You get a weird email between each level and it doesn't make much sense or help the game at all. To get the clues you have to keep going back to a room and clicking on clovers (they are unlimited), A total waste of time. The mini games are quite easy, a jigsaw like puzzle and a lock combination puzzle. If you are just interested in finding objects then you might like it. It does not hold a canldle to MYSTERYCASE FILES or ESCAPE TO THE MUSEUM
