The Adventures of Jason and the Argonauts

Although I did enjoy the story breaks in the game about the classic hero Jason and his crew from Argos, I found the game to be mediocre, and pretty much a waste of time. The graphics looked washed out instead of classical, and it was hard to determine what icon was what under the foggy mists. As you went along in the game, you would get gifts from the Olympians, but you had to find their gold icons in the grids to activate them.

The Treasures of Montezuma 4

This is the fourth installment for the The Treasures of Montezuma series. It has a backstory featuring young Montezuma and his beloved, Anaokoa, as they attempt to escape the Spanish invader of Tenochtitlan via mystic portal. Montezuma escapes, Anaokoa does not, and we are fast-forward to our current time where an archeology student, Anna, has felt a connexion to the Aztec city and culture, and is soon off on her own expedition to learn about what haunts her dreams. That is where the game begins. The game play is pretty much the same as in the other The Treasures of Montezuma games, but the goals of the puzzles differ, which actually gives a little more variety to the game, and……
