If you like marble popper games, you will love Bird’s Town. The mean cats are looking to capture the birds in some menacing traps by the means of mind control, and it’s up to us to make sure they are not caught while trying to build their own cat-free town so they can carry out their little avian lives without feline fears. Some of the animations in this game will have you giggling here and there, such as the wide-eyed look of fear in the birds’ eyes as they get closer to the traps. Watch the cats as they anticipate all the tasty fat birds coming their way, and if you miss, your little rescue bird might hit a rock or a tree, and they will not go splat, but instead fly off with little stars around their heads. With every level you get a little closer to adding more building to Bird’s Town, a city For the Birds! To gain access to new buildings, you must rescue a certain amount of birds before you can build the next part of your town, but it’s worth it to see what rewards they have gained,

Hearts of the North is the second major installment of Guild Wars Beyond, a series of installments to help pave the way as well as bridge the gap between Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2. The previous installment was that of War In Kryta which saw Keiran Thackeray lost and missing after Queen Salma took the throne in Lions Arch.

In this wonderfully scripted and designed bonus adventure we see and help to reunite Keiran and Gwen. The reason I call it a bonus adventure is because to complete War in Kryta and Hearts of the North you must own all games Prophecies, Factions, Nightfall as well as that of Eye Of The North. Parts of the quests take place in a 4 parts of the game. In a way it is a reward for being so faithful to the game.

One of my favorite games that I ever first played on the PlayStation was that of Spyro The Dragon. I still play it again and again and I think it is one of the most enduring ones that was put out. I know it is not the newest and it doesn’t have the PS3 graphics but it has playability. It can be played again and again and you will always find a reason to play it again.

The premise of the game is easy enough, you are a small dragon, possible a teen dragon, who likes nothing more to do then to chase sheep around and play with butterflies. That is you day until the nefarious Gnasty Gnorc, a dragon hating villain, turns all of the dragons into crystal. The only one to escape is that of Spyro and it is his job to free the other dragons and to collect the gems that have been stolen.

1001 Nights The Adventures of Sindbad takes a classic story from Persian legend and brings it to life in this game with many different kinds of puzzles. Follow lowly fisherman Sindbad on his quest to rescue Princess Chalida from the curse that has turned her into a figurehead for cargo ship. Chalida knows some sorcery of her own, and you can help him as he searches for all the pieces to bring her magic together and break the curse that keeps her bound to the seas. From the classic hidden object game, to collecting the power of ! insects! to make it all come together. If you are squeamish about bugs or spiders, you might want to avoid helping Sindbad and Chalida break this curse. Any fan of the Scherezade stories or Middle Eastern mythology will really enjoy 1001 Nights The Adventures of Sindbad.

Since I had so much fun with Supermarket Mania 2, I’ve decided to give the original a try, and it was just as much fun, if not more so than than its sequel. Here we meet Nikki getting her first job with Torg Corporation, an automated grocery outlet that has created a chain of rather sterile stores in her hometown. After working for Torg for a bit, Nikki and her friend find a mom and pop supermarket which they know can turn around with their help and give Torg some stiff competition. The regular customers are there, the old ladies, the yuppies, the sugar-hyped teens, and even some naughty thieves. I found this game to be more enjoyable than the sequel, though both games stand alone in their storylines. It seems that Supermarket Mania has a tie-in with Stand O’Food, which I have yet to try, but I will find the connexion. Nikki is a fun, hard-working character, and I wish I had near as much energy as she does.
