When a game title has the word “artifacts” in it, get ready for a treasure hunt. In this game, you play as a treasure hunter that finds that there is a path linking many nations to the nation of Atlantis, and you play through many levels of mahjongg solitaire to find them. You go from China, to sites in what was once Babylon and Ancient Greece, to Mexico various Mesoamerican cultures, only to end up dealing with the alien Atlanteans, and they are not too pleased with you invading their secret turf.
While this game plays like the classic mahjongg in most aspects, there are some differences. You can click certain tiles in a suit to remove any tile that is open in that suit, or a special tile that will take off every open tile you click on once you choose the tiles you want removed. This game moved a little faster than I would have liked for a mahjongg adventure, but on the upside, they made a sequel, Mahjongg Artifacts: Chapter 2, which is much better and has more global cultural references.

Not many kids get to enjoy a Vernian-style adventure once in their lifetime, but in a span of less than five years, Sean Anderson (Josh Hutcherson) gets in on two, thanks to the adventure-seeking members of his father’s family. He is really not enjoying his move to Dayton, Ohio (oops! Since when to palm trees grow in Dayton?) and his mind is preoccupied with finding Jules Verne’s “Mysterious Island”. Considering that this is the kid who travelled from a dead Icelandic volcano to a live one in Italy by trekking and sailing under the earth itself, finding this island might be quite a feat to add to his list. He gets a code from the HAM radio, and he is sure it is his grandfather telling him where the island is. After finding out the code with some help from his stepfather, Hank (Dwayne Johnson), whom was a codebreaker in the Navy, they find the coordinates to the island, which puts it near the island of Palau, and they fear that Grandpa Alexander (Micheal Caine) might be in trouble. Sean gets Hank’s permission to go to Palau and search for the island, so long as Hank goes along with him. Read more...(560 words, 106 images, estimated 2:14 mins reading time)
The 7 Wonders series of games are just as much fun to play as they are to watch as your little band of workers at the bottom of the puzzles build the ancient architectural wonders. In 7 Wonders: Magical Mystery Tour we are building magical cities of legend, and we start in Camelot, and work our way eastward through Valhalla, to the exotic east in the city of Shangri-la, and we might even take a look at Atlantis. It has always been fun to ponder on these lost cities of fiction and myth, but the time we get to actually put them together in a Match 3 game full of colourful tools and surprises. We have four contractors working under us, a mason, a gardener, a gold miner, and a stone cutter, and each of them lends new beauty to the towns as we see them rise.
