This is not a typical match 3 puzzle game. There is some adventure going on here when your castaway find himself on a tropical island. Vesuvia’s match 3 puzzles take you on a path to search for items to help him search not only for a way to get home, but to find the clues to a mystery of those whom has been on this island before he got here. From the beaches to the jungles, your puzzles will take you along, featuring creatures and items normally found in the area, such as colourful insects, birds, monkeys, and tropical fruits. In some puzzles you move along the map to find torches to light your path, and some don’t need them. Other items are there to help, like a raft to get you over water hurdles, bug spray to get you through hordes of biting insects, traps, dynamite, and other helpful objects you can gain by filling up the color bottles. This is an addictive game, with a good storyline that keeps you curious about what will happen to your castaway next, plus who or what he might encounter along the way. Take a trip to Vesuvia right now, and just try not to get caught up in the fun.
ZEEPT (zeept) n. The accumulation of dead insects around an electric bug fryer.
Well, the warmer weather is most definitely back, especially in the South, and with it comes…. bugs! There are no insects in the world that can compare to Southern bugs, with the exception of jungle bugs. With the new swarm comes the relighting of bug zapper lights in the evenings. They are there to lure moths, mosquitoes, and other biting, flying insects to their doom. Sometimes if you listen, you will hear the zap of a tiny gnat, or the minute-long frying of a dragonfly, but that sound, as satisfying as it might seem in its arthropodian carnage, is not as fine as seeing the zeept. The zeept is what you find the morning after when you go out to the porch. Once you turn off the bug zapper in the morning, if you look to the floor or ground, you can see the evidence of the casualities lost in the war on insects. These are the ones the bats, cats, and birds did not get. These are the ones who were too stupid to listen to the warning, “Don’t go into the light!” You sweep up the zeept, deposit the tiny corpses, then get ready for another night of battle, because, with the bugs being the most numerous things on the planet, it is a war that will never end.
