Premise:  Let’s decorate a haunted house and throw a Halloween party, releasing the money for the decorations by playing Match 3 games which will release the necessary gems and tokens to trade.

Hints:  Have patience; this game takes a long time to load, and the power-ups take a long time to energize. ~ To enter your name as the player, you must first erase the words ‘Let’s Play Games’ by backspacing. ~ At the start of each round, first break the wooden crates, then make matches under the gems and tokens (which look like gold coins), and finally, make matches to break the silver and gold tiles. ~ When all the tiles are broken, the round ends. ~ Look carefully, as the emeralds look a lot like the green potion bottles, and the tokens look a bit like the lollipops. ~ To buy more decorations, choose the option to go back (at the bottom of the bomb-buying page between rounds). ~ Use your tokens to buy a variety of bombs and firecrackers, because you’ll need them.

My Review:  This is a very long game with a nicely illustrated, not scary, haunted house and what looks to be a lengthy story to accompany the game levels. As curious as I am to find out what happens in the story, I only played this game for the one-hour trial, opting not to buy it because it got difficult so quickly and I’m afraid it will go beyond my abilities. (However, I must admit to you that I prefer using strategy rather than bombs, and most likely if I’d stocked up on bombs and firecrackers, I’d have had an easier time of it.)

My Recommendation:  As attractive as this game is, I can only recommend it for players who want a challenge.

The Legend of the Golden Tome

Match 3 Game with HOS                            harder                                   49 MB
No Untimed Option                          PC                      Walkthrough not needed

Premise:   For centuries the Druids recorded their magic spells in a book they called The Golden Tome, and to protect these powerful spells from those who might misuse them, they hid the Tome, and also the six crystals that open the gate to the Tome.  In order to locate these crystals, you must solve the series of Rune puzzles, in the form of Match 3 puzzles, which they have created as a test.  Will you prove worthy?

Hints:   Matching 5 rune stones in a horizontal or vertical row will add 20 seconds to your allotted time. ~ Save your power-ups until you need them to keep from losing a life; the unused power-ups are rolled over to the next rounds, and since the game keeps getting harder, you’ll need them even more, later in the game. ~ The number of lives you have remaining is indicated in the lower right corner of the screen. ~ At any point you can press the F1 key to get the rules, including the functions of the various power-ups (called bonuses). ~ Each time you return to the game, the background story is told again; to skip over it, click on the red button in the top right corner.

More Hints:  First rescue the power-ups by making matches below them, forcing them drop to the bottom of the screen, and break any chain as it appears.  More power-ups appear randomly and you must release those also. ~ In this particular Match 3 game, after I’ve broken the chains and rescued the power-ups, in order to break the tiles behind the rune stones, I find it best to work on the matches at the  bottom of the board, and let the  tiles get broken automatically as the rune stones fall. ~ When the board contains only Runes with nothing behind them, look at the color bowls, see which colors are still visible, and match those colors to fill those bowls; when they are full they will get covered, so as long as you can see the color in the bowl, keep matching that color.

Still More Hints:  When a rune stone appears that looks like a stylized flower or mandala, you have found one of the six crystals.  Rescue it by making matches below it. ~ Nothing can be matched with a crystal, nor can a crystal be swapped using the Swap power-up. ~ Rune stones frozen with ice can’t fall, but they can be unfrozen by matching with regulars of the same color. ~ The black stone, which look like a shiny black marble engraved with a gold II symbol, can’t be broken, nor can it be matched. ~ Similarly, brick walls can’t be broken, and since they block the downward flow, you should try to slide any crystals or power-ups to the left or right before they reach a brick wall.

Power-ups  (Listed in the order in which you will encounter them):
Hammer:  Use it to break a tile, rune stone, chain, double chain, stone or metal layer, or ice that is keeping you from winning the round before you run out of time.
Swap:  It looks like a circle made by connecting two arrows; to use it, select 2 rune stones to switch their positions, making one or two vital matches.
Bomb: This will break stones, but it only damages chains or ice.
Fireball: It looks like a fancy triangle, and it breaks rune stones, and damages chains, double chains and ice, in a horizontal row of your choice.
Lightning:  It breaks stones, and damages chains, double chains and ice, in a vertical column of your choice.
Shuffle: It looks like crossed arrows, and you can use it to mix up the positions of all the stones on the board.
Power of Colors:  It looks like 3 circles, and it breaks stones of the color you select.
Heart::  Gives you an additional life.

My Review:   I found this to be a really difficult game.  Not only do you need to release the power-ups from the board, you also must break the wooden or metal tiles behind some of the rune stones, and you must fill the color bowls along the right side of the screen by matching enough rune stones of each needed color, all within the given time period as indicated by the green column on the left.  Meanwhile, chains will randomly appear and lock one of the rune stones, and you must break that chain.  And there is not an untimed option.  Lose all your lives and you lose all the crystals and power-ups and points you’ve amassed, and you must start over from the beginning.

The Jigsaw Puzzles were pleasant, but the Hidden Object scenes were repeated again and again and again — always with the same objects in exactly the same places — and that really tried my patience.

My Recommendation:  I can recommend this game only for experienced gamers who have finished all their games and are looking for another challenge.  However, I must confess — as difficult as this game is — in the beginning I found it rather compelling and I wanted to keep trying.  (Perhaps the gentle encouragement that the Druid gave between levels actually works?)  But when I kept losing all my lives and had to start over, again and again, I knew I was wasting my time.

Twilight City: Love as a Cure

Life Management                              easier                                          181 MB
Untimed                                 PC                               Walkthrough not needed

Premise:  When you chose to become a vampire so you could live forever, you hadn’t realized that it would make you into a monster.  Now you are too dangerous to be with the one you love, so you have exiled yourself in Skylight, a settlement of monsters, because you’ve been told that in Skylight there is the knowledge of how to become human again, and you want so much to return to your beloved.

Hints:  To keep this game moving along, try to get as much cash and vigor (energy) as possible by clicking repeatedly on the “work” button, but watch the level of blood (vigor) in your goblet and don’t let it get depleted. ~ When your vigor level gets low, just go back to your room in city hall and keep clicking on the “rest” button until your vigor goblet is full. ~ You don’t need to eat at the pub, which drains your cash supply — just rest. ~ The furniture you buy to decorate your room helps you regenerate more quickly, as do your clothing items… and even the “vehicle” you ride. ~ Your horse is rather slow, and that gets boring quickly (no pun intended), so whenever you can afford it, upgrade your mode of transportation (to dragons, bat clouds, etc.). ~ You train and study to build up your abilities, which will enable you to achieve your goals. It will also give you more career choices, and higher pay levels. ~ Find a better job at the “vacancies” list at city hall. ~ Train at the Academy to increase mana, and at the Camp to increase vigor. ~ To replenish your mana, simply rest, or watch the macabre circus, or choose the mana option when you are rewarded by the vampires for the help you give them. ~ You can continue playing after the game is done.

My Review:  This is a Life Management game, which means that you go about your day as you would normally, going to work to gain funds, going shopping, studying, getting hungry and tired — just like life.  To me, this sounds like a boring concept for a game, so I don’t play them, and I don’t review them since I try to avoid negative reviews… but this game caught my eye because of the vampires, and so I gave it a try.  At first glance, it seemed similar in concept to Life Quest, but with a gothic theme and with better artwork.  The settings are effectively atmospheric and intriguing (if you like the Gothic genre, which I do), and that’s what I like about this game — it is pure eye candy.  I passed on buying it when it was on sale, then regretted it.  I wanted to go back there and explore the areas I hadn’t yet seen, and my trial hour was up.  The fact that I’m considering paying full price for this game says a lot.

By the way — in addition to the daily grind — there are a few “quests” (favors you do for the other vamps) which are in the form of hidden object scenes and puzzles.  Also, you get to choose what you look like, which is fun.  And you only need to balance two elements, vigor and mana, with your activities, instead of the four elements of time, food, sleep, and mood — all of which I feel are advantages over the usual Life Management games.

My Recommendation:  This game is perfect for young teenage, pre-teen and middle-school vampire fans and goths, both male and female (you get to choose your gender).  It is also suitable for adults looking for a relaxing game with very little challenge.  It is gothic eye candy.

The Crop Circles Mystery

Mystery Game with Puzzles and Hidden Objects                               135 MB
Untimed Option         easier           PC & Mac          Walkthrough not needed

Premise:  Jane and her brother Joe see something — or someone — in their wheat field during a terrible thunderstorm.  When the storm is over and the sun has come out, they find that some of their rows of wheat have been compressed into a strange design of circles, which a TV reporter identifies as crop circles.  After they clear the debris left by the storm, Joe tends to the curiosity seekers visiting their vegetable stand, earning money to make repairs to their storm-damaged farm and homestead, while Jane goes into town to learn more about crop circles, trying to solve the mystery of who or what trampled their wheat.

Hints:  At the farmstand, you won’t be able to service all the customers because the round ends when the 12th customer leaves. ~  If you simply can’t find what a customer wants, you can use the hint button. ~ You’ll definitely be using the hint button during the Hidden Object scenes because many items are so well blended in. ~ The hint takes almost a minute to recharge, so don’t wait until you’re desperate to start using it. ~ If you don’t know what an item is, click on the word and you’ll be given its silhouette, which is very helpful. (I didn’t know what a carabiner is, or what an angle grinder looks like.)

My Review:  Don’t be put off by the comic book style artwork because it in no way lessens the suspense and realism of this very exciting mystery.

My Recommendation:  I’ve played a lot of mystery games, and very few have pulled me into the plot the way this one did.  How can such a simply-made game be so suspenseful?  Is it the eerie music?  Something in the animation?  Whatever it is, I’m amazed — and delighted! — for here is a game that doesn’t just call itself a mystery story, but really is one.  And amazingly it has no violence, no murder, no kidnapped children, no voodoo, not even any blood! — so it’s a game which you can let your children play without worry and yet you yourself will enjoy.  What a miracle.

The Island: Castaway 1 & 2

The Island: Castaway     &    The Island: Castaway 2
Adventure Games                  easier
Untimed                                  PC                   Walkthroughs are necessary

135 MB                                   Adults and Teens

156 MB                                   Pre-Teens thru Adult
(and possibly Middle School-Aged, but read My Recommendation before you decide to give this game to a child)

Premise:  In the first game, The Island: Castaway, a cruise ship sinks in a tsunami and you and some others, all strangers, are stranded on a tropical island paradise.  As you get to know each other and the island natives, and learn how to survive in the wild, you are confronted with challenges and adventures.

In the second game, The Island: Castaway 2, the story goes back in time at least 60 years to the native inhabitants’ initial encounter with white strangers, a motley crew of sailors of varying trustworthiness.  The problems those scalliwags create are the cause of our present-day seafarers’ difficulties.  (For this reason, I’m thinking it might make more sense to play The Island: Castaway 2 before playing The Island: Castaway.)

Hints:  You’ll be doing a lot of gathering and collecting in these games; at first you will be severely limited as to how much you can hold, as your bag has very few compartments, with each compartment storing 20 of the same item; later you’ll get a bigger bag with more compartments and be able to store 50 or 100 items in each compartment. ~ Important: You must always keep at least one compartment of your bag empty or you won’t be able to cook. ~ Cooking is particularly important, so gather all the twigs you see (when it’s safe to do so). ~ In the beginning, pick apples and kiwis whenever you see them on the ground; they are needed for fruit salad, the easiest and quickest meal to make, and they are harder to find than the other fruits. ~ You need to eat often, especially before and after energetic work. ~ When picking tree fruit, pass your cursor over the entire tree and the bushes around it because fallen fruit is often hidden. ~ Food never spoils, by the way, so don’t be afraid to stockpile. ~ You may need to eat suddenly to outrun an imminent animal attack. ~ Also, you can sell the food you’ve gathered and the meals you’ve prepared for lots of pearls, which you will need to buy necessities.

To enter or exit a cave, go to the circle of light. ~ In the first game, all the snakes will bite you if you’re not protected, but in The Island: Castaway 2, snakes won’t bite unless you’re picking cave mushrooms. ~ Their bites won’t kill you, but if you don’t have enough energy their bites will overcome you, so don’t enter the shaman’s caves unless you’ve eaten your fill. ~ Also fill your energy bar anytime you go to the village or anywhere else that has wild boars. ~ If a wild boar chases you, run to the nearest water.

More Hints:   In playing The Island: Castaway you must click after each line of dialogue to bring the next line… unlike The Island: Castaway 2, in which the dialogue flows smoothly and naturally. ~ To skip the introductory scene during subsequent visits, click anywhere. ~ The screen will go black for 10 seconds, then it’ll bring you to the main menu.

As you wander around the parts of the island you’ll see round patches of soil; plant a seed in each one if you can, for they extend your access to the plants you’ll need for certain recipe requests. ~ In the 1st game, besides twigs, pick the flowers whenever you can safely, especially the blue ones; also, in the 1st game you’ll need lots of lemons to cook fish & crabs, but in the 2nd game, start out collecting kiwis.

I found two Walkthroughs for each game; choose the ones you like and copy-and-paste the appropriate address:

My Review:  The stories in both these games are engrossing, with tasks which are sometimes challenging and at other times simply enjoyable. In fact, with the relaxing music & atmospheric drumbeats to enhance the mood, these games are so enjoyable that, even though they are lengthy, I’ve played them three times each.  I loved being on a tropical island and feeling free to go for a walk, gather fruit, catch crabs, go fishing, cook a meal, gather shells, plant seeds, harvest my crops, and do what I please whenever I want, even when someone is waiting to talk to me; they are willing to wait, and paradise is meant to be enjoyed.

My Recommendation:  I love both these games, and have played them several times each (which is saying a lot, given their lengths).  The Island: Castaway 2 is played through the eyes of a young boy ready to enter manhood and choose his life’s path.  As he practices the skills for each trade he is considering, he is given good moral advice from his elders, and for that reason I originally thought this would be a great game for children… but… at the end of the story there are three murders, two of which you witness.  They are not gory, and they probably wouldn’t traumatize today’s children, but I come from a different age and so I am leery about this (even though those two murders were to save the lives of the entire tribe).  I’ll leave that judgement to you as their parent, to weigh the sound teachings The Island: Castaway 2 offers in a really enjoyable and engrossing format vs. the shocking ending, and decide what is appropriate.

The first The Island: Castaway is even more problematic, with references made to insanity, promiscuity, murder, and ritual human sacrifice.

And then there are the snakes… having to walk through a dark cave with slithering snakes or a swamp filled with crocodiles is really creepy… and did I mention repeatedly being chased by wild boars? There is stress in this game, I must admit.  Still…

These are really great games, which you can try for free, here:

The Timebuilders: Caveman’s Prophecy

Time Management, Strategy, Civilization-Building Game                    313 MB
Untimed Option         harder          PC & Mac           Walkthrough not needed

Premise:  You are a cave dweller in the time of the dinosaurs (we’ll ignore what the scientists would say about that).  Your tribe wants to leave the cave and live outside, so your people must learn to build stone huts and move that T-Rex away from the opening of your cave.  You get ideas from Hatti the chief woman, who gets her ideas from a gigantic, mysterious, star-covered, cosmic-looking egg she found in the cave.  (Hmmm… is this a veiled reference to Joseph Chilton Pearce’s famous 1973 book The Crack In The Cosmic Egg, which describes the interconnectedness and evolution of all life and all thoughts, across space and time… and which could explain how she & her egg come up with such brilliant & forward-thinking ideas as windmills & hot-air balloons & the word “agriculture” in the time of the caveman?)

Hints:  There seems to be division of labor in cave society, so if the work isn’t progressing smoothly, you probably don’t have enough laborers of the right gender. ~ The women gather the “tribute” (rent, in the form of steaks) and they also open ripened eggs, and eradicate the more dangerous (man-eating) “gotchas” (carnivorous plants); when you see an hourglass, it means you need to recruit more women from the “great hut”. ~ The men gather rocks, either by breaking up the rock piles or by trading meat for rocks at the “pickarock” (quarry), and they use the rocks to build and improve the huts. ~ You’ll need more men, and woolly mammoths, when you’re given a special project such as building a large statue or harvesting an entire field of non-man-eating “gotchas”.

More Hints:  When you click on a job you want done, sometimes the game doesn’t register your command, so check up on work you think is getting done (especially the opening of the ripened eggs, which must be timed just right). ~ I keep the music low (“1” in Settings in the Menu) so I can hear the subtle clues that I need to take an action… the cracking of a ripe egg, the snapping of a gotcha when it’s caught something I can harvest, the arrival of a saber-tooth tiger kitten looking to steal some steaks from the great hut, the deterioration of a gizmo in need of repair. ~ Before each round, you will be given a useful hint, but it may have nothing to do with the level you are about to work on, so don’t let it mislead you.

My Review:  This is a well-made, cleverly worded, and enjoyable game in an amusingly-drawn cartoon style.  I love to watch the villagers — especially the women — do their celebration dance whenever I finish a level.  It’s a Time Management game, so there is, unfortunately, a timer… but, thankfully, you can continue working after it runs out… you just won’t earn the “flystone” (amber), which you ultimately will want.  Because the game allows you to return to previous levels at any time and repeat levels as many times as necessary, I recommend that you do practice runs to figure out a strategy that will work quickly enough, and that you ignore the timer until you’re ready to beat it; or perhaps return to that level when you’ve gained more experience with the game.  And by the way, while Hatti is teaching you new skills during the intro to each level, try clicking on the little animals that are around the encampment.

My Recommendation:  This is a game which I enjoyed so much that, on my first day with it, I didn’t stop playing until my fingers cramped.  It’s a good introduction to Time Management games.  However, sometime after the halfway point, I found myself spending almost all my time fending off the steak-stealing tiger kittens, which involves shaking the bejeebers out of them — something I don’t enjoy, but kids might get a kick out of it.  Also, it rather quickly becomes impossible to win amber, which makes me hesitate to recommend it… still, as long as you can ignore the timer, or are willing to repeat levels until you figure them out (a requirement in all Time Management games), and if playing and enjoying a game is more important to you than getting the highest score, then I think you might have fun with this cute game.

The Village Mage: Spellbinder

Time Management / Match 3 Game              harder                              28 MB
No Untimed Option                PC                              Walkthrough not needed

Premise:  You are a young mage / potion maker / healer who has just started plying your trade out of your parents’ village home, and villagers and townsfolk come to you to cure their ills.  You magically identify the needed potion, fire up the cauldron, take the ingredients off the shelf, and mix the ingredients (via your Match 3 matches) until the potion bottle is filled.  Give the bottle to your customer and get gold coins.  Unfortunately, more customers arrive and before long you have impatient patients who are losing their patience.  (Sorry about that.  I just couldn’t resist.)

Hints:  A white dot next to the ingredient list on the left side of the Match 3 grid means you have enough of that ingredient and you should concentrate on matching the others. ~ You can make two potions of the same color by continuing to make matches after the first bottle is filled.

My Review:  I like that you can choose to be female or male, and I like the potion recipes, which call for ingredients like acorns, pine cones, daisies, mushrooms, and crystals.  The illustrations are pleasant and the music is appropriate.  The addition of the Match 3 component adds an interesting twist to the Time Management format.  Because it is a little different and a little bit complicated, I’m listing it as ‘harder,’ but newbies can probably handle it.

My Recommendation: 
I love making potions but my enjoyment was tarnished by the pressure to finish the prescriptions before the customers got disgusted and walked out — which is a standard part of Time Management games, but which goes against my need to please everyone.  Yes, some players like the challenge of Time Management games, and unfortunately I’m not one of them… but if I were, this game, with its potion theme, would really please me.

Triazzle Island

Puzzle  Game                                harder                                              67 MB
Timer can be ignored             PC & Mac                  Walkthrough not needed

Premise:  According to this game, our Earth was created by the Spirits of Ocean and Sky, aided by their child, whom they named Mischief.  The first land they created was an island, and the Spirits gave the islanders a puzzle to help them develop their mental faculties.  The islanders were so grateful that they named their island after the puzzle, used the puzzle as a rite of passage into adulthood, and worshipped the Spirits.  You have come to learn the story of this island and of its mystery, and as you travel along the stepping stones and pathways leading to the temple, you will solve progressively larger puzzles until you reach the temple, where you will face the ultimate Triazzle test to prove yourself.  Along the way, the story of the Spirits will unfold, and the reason that there is no longer any life on Triazzle Island will be revealed to you.

Hints:  The path starts as stepping stones in the water and the animals in those puzzles are denizens of the deep; when you reach dry land the animals are land creatures like colorful frogs, turtles, salamanders; when you climb the mountain you are in the sky and the animals are birds and butterflies. ~ Start with the triangle that contains the least common combination of animals; then concentrate on the triangles with two animals. ~ Rotate a triangle by clicking on it. ~ You can take a long time solving a puzzle and still get a silver award, but after the first few puzzles, gold is nearly impossible to earn. ~ Hints are replenished with each round. ~ You can replay any puzzle. ~ The stepping stones along the entire path are either brown or grey: The brown ones are along the main path and are the sites of the standard Triazzle Puzzles, and the grey ones are offshoots of the path and are the sites of a similar but trickier version called Trilinx. ~ You are not required to do the Trilinx Puzzles, but if you don’t, you won’t learn the story.

More Hints:  In Trilinx, two designs become connected by a beam of light.  When the beam becomes a triangle, the figure you’ve created, which is called a triform, disappears. ~ Your goal in Trilinx is to link all the tiles together with lines of light, and if you haven’t used every tile, or if there are any tiles which don’t disappear, then you haven’t succeeded. ~ Therefore, you must plan ahead and keep from creating the large triangle until your last move, and you can do that by rotating one tile to break the beam of light so the triform isn’t created until you have every tile in place. ~ If you make a mistake and the triform disappears before you are done, you can backtrack.

My Review:  This game was created by Dan Gilbert, the creator of the original cardboard Triazzle Puzzle.  When I was young I was fascinated by the Triazzle Puzzle, so I was delighted to find it in a computer game, and this version is even more fun because when you create a match, the attractively drawn and brightly colored animals you assembled begin to move.  You are, in effect, creating life in these animals and restoring them to the barren island!  But there’s a problem… the puzzles get larger and more challenging, and toward the end of the game, I’m sorry to say, they become seemingly impossible to solve.

My Recommendation:  If it’s okay with you that you might not be able to finish the story unless you spend many hours and days wracking your brain over the last puzzles (or get really lucky), then I recommend this game, because the first 90% of Triazzle Island is really fun.  The music is peppy and appropriately island-y, the animals are cute, and the earlier puzzles work your brain while being enjoyable at the same time.

Tropico Jong: Butterfly Expedition

Mahjong Game                                                                                      9 MB
Timer can be ignored              PC                          Walkthrough not needed

Premise:  You are on an expedition to identify the various species of butterflies on a tropical island.  There are butterflies that are trapped within the Mahjong structures, and by removing the tiles you are able to rescue those tiny butterflies.

Hints:  Ignore the timer and enjoy the butterflies.  They are so realistic that it seems magical. ~ You are not penalized for shuffling the deck when you run out of matches. In fact, high scores give you nothing in this game, so if you don’t care about beating the top score, just play for the thrill of releasing a butterfly and the enjoyment of watching it flutter and fly. ~ Unlike other Mahjong games, strategy is not really important because you are given up to 99 hints and undo’s at a time, the tiles change when there are no more moves, and you don’t even need to clear the board — just rescue all the butterflies. ~ If you want to improve your score and beat the game’s fastest time, you just need to remember where the butterflies were hidden, and then replay that level.  The tiles will change but the butterflies will be trapped in the same places. ~ You can even replay the levels after you’ve completed the entire game, at which time you’ll be so much faster and win each level with ease.

My Review:  This is the perfect game for learning Mahjong without the pressure that other games have — especially since strategy is not so important as it is in some Mahjong games because in this game you don’t need to clear the board — just rescue the butterflies, which will then flutter about before settling down in the collection area, still slowly fanning their wings, delighting and distracting you with their beauty. When the level is complete, the butterflies wait in your collection jar for you to release them into the valley (by clicking on the Valley button; leave the valley and return to the game at any time by pressing the Escape key on your keyboard). You can return to the valley at any time and watch them enjoying their freedom. ~ These are renditions of actual butterflies, and when you encounter a new species, an ID card will appear with the name and scientific info.

My Recommendation:  Wow, I love this game.  I the love butterflies, which are so realistic that they take my breath away.  Also, this is the most relaxing game I’ve ever seen, with its quiet music and the slow, rhythmic beating of the butterflies’ wings as they are resting after being rescued.  If you like beautiful butterflies, then this game will delight you.
