There are most likely going to be many holiday themed games out there this week, but this fun little hidden object game was a nice break from the darker mysteries we are used to seeing. This game focuses on two kids from the Heartland, Emma and Mike, and the fun they have in being part of the Easter celebrations out on the farm and in their town as they join their classmates on a fun springtime field trip.
This game is filled with just about everything that Ostara is about, the flowers, candy, farm animals, painted eggs, both from the kitchen and the Faberge’ designs. Little logic puzzles, spot the differences, and other kinds of visual mini-games. This game is perfect for everyone, and the kids will love it, especially if they are fans of the Highlights for Children magazines, because this game has many of the same features as that classic schoolroom periodical.

You also get bonuses from gold and shipping out a certain amount of items in trucks to other towns. Also, some farm animals help you in your puzzles in some ways you would not expect. The hens will tap out tiles for you, and the bees will buzz around the puzzles and scramble the tiles when you reach an impasse. Read more...(299 words, 31 images, estimated 1:12 mins reading time)
