There are many match 3 games out with restaurant themes, and this one is pretty much one of the more boring of the bunch. The graphics were a bit stretched at first, but it seems that this game was meant to be played in Windowed mode, because once I switched it out from full screen, it worked much faster and looked much better.
Apple Pie is not a cooking sim, but a match 3 restaurant management game in which you play a post-grad woman that gets a job from your rich crazy cat lady aunt who decides that you must run her new restaurant since the management staff there does not get along with her cat (eh?). So, apparently, the arrogant little furball needs to de-stress, and Auntie is going to take him on a European vacation. IN the time they are away, you have to run the business and redecorate the place with upgrades and furnish your chefs with new recipes.

This is a cute little match three game with lots of interesting twists along the way. You can play the game in several different way all depending on what style of play that you want. First of all you can choose timed or totally casual where it doesn’t matter how long it takes you to move. That mode would be perfect if you are having to leave the computer often to be able to do something else. It used to be that not that many games had a mode like this but now more and more of them are as more and more people are doing different things as they multitask all the time. So that is one very big plus for this game especially while trying to stay awake and answer phones late at night. That is if your boss will let you do that.

I used to play Heroes of Hellas quite a bit back in the day. After a few drive upgrades later, I sort of lost the game, and never got a new copy. I was pleasantly surprised to find a couple of sequels has been made since then. Heroes of Hellas 2: Olympia goes much further in depth than the original, and we are doing so much more than merely hunting down heroes to help us in a quest. Anyone who loves classical mythology and legends should give this a try. Our new challenge is to build a grand city from the town of Olympia. It is the one bright spot in Greece that was not destroyed when a vicious demon escaped from Tartarus. So not only are we hunting new heroes, we are also getting help from the gods and titans as refugees come to Olympia to forge out a new life. With every new puzzle, comes a new challenge, so it is never the same puzzle twice. You play in a match 3 mode at the start, but later on things become vastly different. There are new tools added as you gain new heroes, as well. Read more...(306 words, 31 images, estimated 1:13 mins reading time)
When I downloaded Crop Busters, I did it directly from my game manager, and not from the website itself, so I thought I’d be getting into another farming simulator. Whoa! I sure was surprised when it turned out to be a really different kind of Match 3 game.
We have a young lady who is coming back to take over the family farm, and it is in bad shape, but by using a Match 3 puzzler, you sell various basic plants and other farm goods to build your farm up. The more money you make, the more upgrades you can buy, as well as new machines to create other products one would not normally find in a farming sim. Sure you have the basics, the hen house for eggs, a milk cow, and some apples from a small orchard, but then you get new things, like a beehive to make honey, and a thread spinner to make yarn, and other unusual natural resource items. 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)
We are again looking for all those gems as we zip through the puzzles of The Treasures of Montezuma 2. The gameplay is the simple sliding of tiles to make a Match 3 or better. Gain gems to gain bonuses in your score,and there are some use the colour totems to help find gems and boost your score. The layout of the fertile valleys of southern Mexico is your playing field, and the pyramids that were once the temples of bloodthirsty Aztec gods your stops along the way. The gods have gone dormant, so you can explore and play the puzzles at your leisure, but don’t linger too long on any one puzzle, you will lose your time bonuses. The more gems you find in the allotted time, the higher your score will be. The Treasures of Montezuma 2 is quick-paced, and each colour totems gives you a different way of taking out the tiles when you match 3 of its own colour. There are different tools to help you, but the rainbow gems seem to be most effective, as they will randomly take out many tiles at one time, and who knows how many gems might be found that way! If you are looking for a fun way to while away a rainy or superly hot summer Saturday afternoon, then download The Treasures of Montezuma 2, and discover the lost treasures of the Aztec people without ever leaving your office or kitchen.
