Blitzkrieg
 – 

So SO

I would not recommend this game.

The game speed is way to fast for how quickly your units die. Squads of infantry do not die in 5 seconds in real combat EVERY time. Also you cant see where your being attacked from. I am fine with fog of war,but u can barely see on the mini map,and by the time u realize,your units are gone. Units die to easily.

The good
nice graphics and good detailed armor,though i question if these values really work as i have had tanks get blows away by little anti tank guns that then wipe out my infantry,they either do one or the other,not both.

Plants vs. Zombies Game Of The Year Edition
 – 

Definitely a Winner

This is by far the best game I have played for ages. Totally addictive, total fun - not too hard, but is still quite challenging. This game is definitely worth the money.

4 Elements
 – 

Great - and yet not recommendable!

A very nice and different match 3 game. You love it - until you reach the last but one level!! The time until you're stock in a dead end street is so short, that you have mere no chance to solve it. Have tried so many times without succes. This is not my way of relaxing! So after all: waste of money! Come up with an update of the game that is a little more realistic!

Westward II: Heroes of the Frontier

westward II

The game is fun, but the 'load' feature crashes the game 4 out of 5 times.

There is also a 'continue' feature that works better, but it takes you back to the last side quest accomplished...

Fishdom H2O: Hidden Odyssey

Great graphics, challenging object-find puzzles, fun creating aquariums - a GREAT GAME! I'm looking forward to more in the Fishdom series.

Snowy: The Bear's Adventures
 – 

Terrible!

Why would they use the control button for throwing the snowballs?!? With the feature of spaces on Mac, my screen kept changing during the game whenever I would press control + the right arrow button. Other than that I guess it's a fun game for kids.

Hospital Hustle

This is a great game - it very detailed and sophisticated - and one of the best time management games out there.

Rooms: The Main Building
 – 

Try the demo first before buying.

I found this one to be rather unusual and quite different than most puzzle games.

Overall, it's primarily a sliding puzzle, moving from one room to another to get to the door. The teleport is eeriely similar to the Matrix concept.

However, it became boring fairly quickly and I went through it at a fast pace.

The graphics and animation were stunning and the music was an excellent fit. It was very well produced but unfortunately, didn't hold my attention for very long.

Definitely try it before purchasing as it may not suitable for everyone.

Pure Hidden
 – 

Don't be fooled by the name!

It took me a while to try this game, simpley because of the word HIIDDEN in the title. They are usually the same ol! Not so with this one! The game is equal 3rd's h/o, puzzle games and activities. You must reach the end of a level completing all before being rewarded with an item used to open the next level. All levels are unique and can be far trickier than they appear! If you are looking for a well done and unique H/O, definitely give this a shot! I was pleasantly surprised.

Youda Legend: The Curse of the Amsterdam Diamond
 – 

Lack of Help

I love the concept of the game and the graphics are great. My problem is lack of directions and help or hints. I'm stuck in one puzzle (the rings) and the help provided is worthless. Also the game doesn't save when I exit so when I return, I have to start all over again!

Bookworm Deluxe
 – 

Lot of fun

This is one of my favourite word games that really keeps you on your toes.

Appearances can be deceiving, don't be fooled by the simple graphics and concept, thinking that it is for children. It requires quick responses to form words before the tiles reach the top line. You really have to use your noggin to come up with long words to get bonus points.

Keep an eye open for the flaming letters, if they hit the bottom, the whole thing goes up in flames - literally.

This is an excellent game for those that want to exercise the mind and improve their spelling skills. Gotta warn you though, it's addictive and a lot of fun

Diamond Detective
 – 

Incredibly addictive

This is a great game for the family, it's very upbeat with fun graphics and jazzy music, suitable for all ages.

It is almost like an old fashioned Clue game with a hint of Noir added where you have to figure out the weapons and suspects. The artwork is easy on the eyes and reminiscent of The Shadow.
Overall it is a Match 3 game that gets more challenging as you progress through each case. I found it to be incredibly addictive and went through the game fairly quickly.

Escape The Museum
 – 

Could be better

This is an okay game for the family especially the younger crowd.

I was not impressed with the graphics, it felt like I was following a comic book.

It's not very challenging and seems to be a bit slow at times in terms of pace.

Try the demo first before buying.

Interpol: The Trail of Dr. Chaos
 – 

Have a go at this one

This was an outstanding game to play and I wanted more! It featured amazing graphics and interesting objects in all sorts of locations.

I loved the globetrotting adventure theme and it reminded me of Mission Impossible. It was fun to figure out where to search next.

You can't get bored with this one!

Teens and adults will enjoy this game.

Jewel Quest III
 – 

Cool

This is a new and improved version of Jewel Quest with gorgeous illustrations, animated museum and icons, and a wonderful diary to flip through as you seek the answers on your quest.

You can't but feel like an archaeologist as you traverse the globe to various destinations searching for new clues.

You simply solve each challenge by matching three or more of the same sparkling jewels until all of the tiles turn gold. Plus, you will need to match 3 coins to unlock it. Keep an eye on the dragon at the bottom of the page, his disappearing tongue is keeping track of the time.

Listen closely to the ambient sounds, you will marvel at the jungle noise including twittering birds. The music is rather lively with the sounds of the rhythmic drums.

Scrabble Journey
 – 

Awful

I was eager to try this one since it sounded more interesting based on the choices available (Quest) as opposed to simply playing it like the actual Scrabble board game. Boy, was I wrong.
The most obvious issue was the viewing screen which was set proportionally wrong. The bottom aspect with the links and a portion of the Scrabble board was missing, it was completely off my computer. I could not see the tiles and struggled to access the menu.

Even after I went into the Options page and selected windowed mode, it shrank the viewing screen to such a small size that I had to lean in close to the monitor to see what I was doing. It was impossible to play the game in either size (full vs windowed).

Overall, the graphics were rather simplistic, very 80's style (ie: Gameboy). In terms of animation, it was not all that exciting, it was fairly basic - the river sparkled, the little sheep roamed around as you played, the trees and flags swayed in the wind.
This game has serious problems with spelling and recognizing words. The hints often provided words that do not exist in the dictionary.

The Nightshift Code
 – 

Good family game

I found this game to be quite interesting. Even though it is yet another Hidden Object search puzzle (there are tons out there...), it was a bit addictive.

The quality of the graphics was okay although I found it to be tiresome after awhile and certainly not enough levels. I went through this game fairly quickly.

I was not impressed with the comic book/marker renderings for the dialogue scenes between the characters (it plays a segment at each level). It was too different from the search pages (glossy vs rough) and it really downplayed the overall feeling of the game. I kept getting the impression that it was geared for children when it's actually more suitable for teens and up.

Jewel Quest Mysteries
 – 

Addictive

This is a snazzy version of the Jewel Quest series, it has much improved graphics/game play and offers a more complete package with Match 3 and Hidden Object.

However, there were several issues such as being unable to find the menu (you have to pause the game to get to the main menu in order to exit the game). I found some of the scenes in the Hidden Object mini games a bit muddy.

There is lots of wonderful animation including flickering torches and sparkling jewels. Click on the gems and golden coins in the Hidden Object games to gain hints and more points (the more gems you get, the more options you can purchase in the store).
I found this one to be extremely easy and went through the levels fairly quickly.

If you are a big Jewel Quest fan and looking for more adventure, definitely consider this one to extend your travels.
