[Games] Games Summary Post!

So here's my summary of games that I've played throughout the month. The games I play vary greatly and are highly dependent on whether it's currently school term or not :P

During school term, I prefer playing games of a shorter duration, like sudoku puzzles and hidden object games (HOG). During the holidays, I like to play on my 3DS or PC games that require longer commitment, like Legend of Heroes series.

What platform do I play my games on?

If you want to always play the latest game releases, Big Fish Games has a very large, up-to-date selection, releasing one game a day! However, I mostly play on HP Games, for they offer a free play on the full version of the game, and I usually finish a hidden object game within the free play itself. BHG however, offers only an hour free or the demo version. ): Plus, buying the games from there is a tad more expensive than HP Games unless you get into the Big Fish Game Club.

On to the games!



Margrave 4: The Blacksmith's Daughter
Played on: Big Fish Games. 
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): ~3 hours

It opens with a song! That was cool. Pretty graphics and a nice soundtrack. Plot-wise there was a lot left unexplored, but that happens with hidden object games often so that they can come up with sequels. I got lost and confused several times in the game though, and the map wasn't very helpful IMO ): But it was fully voiced-over, and you could turn it off if you disliked their voices.



Nancy Drew: Secrets Can Kill Remastered
Played on: HP Games
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): ~1 hour

It's really easy xD Much shorter than most Nancy Drew games I've played, but granted it is the first game they ever released, with upgrades to current levels of graphics, conversation and phone system. This plot is slightly more ominous because the trigger was that someone died. In almost all Nancy Drew games released, the trigger is usually near-death accidents/scary rumours, but nothing ever so concrete as death. Of course, you don't get to see the body or anything. Pretty child-friendly. Has a good soundtrack to build suspense toward the end of the game.




Jo's Dream: Organic Coffee
Played on: HP Games
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): Never finished in free trial :P

Twisted Lands: The Origin
Played on: HP Games
Time taken to finish game (excluding breaks): ~4.5hours

This game involved a lot of backtracking. Thankfully the map was more helpful and would indicate if there was something to do in that area. You could also activate a compass to show you all the possible exits in that location. Only problem was the arrows don't correspond to exit movement, so there were times I was just clicking the arrow and it didn't change locations ): Plot was interesting though! Could do with better graphics.


Do you have any games to recommend me? Leave it in a comment below (:

Hope this post was helpful ^^

Amaya.
