This was my first try of one of the Hidden Expedition games, and there are five in the series. Hidden Expedition: Amazon caused me some problems from the beginning, in that that I could not get the full screen version to load. When playing hidden object games, full screen is a much better option. The windowed screen was tiny, and it made it really difficult to find the objects you were looking for. There are some help guides, in that, when you click on the word in the list, it gives an outline shape of the item you are supposed to search for. You can also gain hints by searching for five tropical beetles in each puzzle. I recognized some of the sound effects, and realized that this game was designed by the same company that game us Azada, so I wondered why I was having so much trouble with the game, as I just could not get enough of the Azada games.

Death at Fairing Point: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector’s Edition

Death at Fairing Point: A Dana Knightstone Novel Collector’s Edition is a great hidden object mystery game, and I know that you can find these kinds of games all over the place, but I really liked this one. The setting is very picturesque, and the story about the ghosts that Dana are chasing is really amazing. The search is on as you follow David Robertson’s ghost around a manor in Scotland to find out about his murder back in the early 1800s, and learn how it was connected to a sultry young woman known only as “Charlotte”.

You are truly seeing everything from Dana’s POV as you solve puzzles and learn new things about the people who lived at the manor back in David’s time. Dana finds clues not only at the house, but in the local gardens and pub. There were some hidden object puzzles, but the logic puzzles blend so well into the game, you really feel as if you are becoming closer to the ghost and unravelling his mystery. Fans of romantic suspense, ghost stories, and murder mysteries will really like Death at Fairing Point.

Awakening: Moonfell Wood is about as average as it gets when it comes to puzzle games. Sofia, a human princess, wakes up in a world where all humans have vanished, but the other creatures guide her to find them. A fairy, Mira is her guide, and she gains a pocket dragon as a pet, whom is useful for lighting torches and candles, plus there are centaurs and friendly goblins who look not unlike Miner-Forty-Niners from an old Western movie.

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.
