I like this puzzle game very much. I like how you can zoom in and out to make the pieces as small or large as you desire. I love the paintings and there is a large inventory to choose from. There is one drawback; when you are working on a puzzle you cannot save what you have done. The next time you open it you must start from the beginning. I emailed the company and they said they are working on this problem.

Faerie Solitaire Remastered

Faerie Solitaire Remastered

I’ve given this remaster 10 hours now and made notes on the differences, and I feel like I can do a decent review now. Disclaimer: I love the original Faerie Solitaire. I got it on sale for 99 cents, and I love it enough that twice now I’ve deleted the game file that keeps track of the in-game feats (not the Steam achievements) so that I could have a more legitimate reason to play it more. I’m not nearly as enamored with this version, so I’ll start with the cons.

I finally decided to give this solitaire game a try after seeing it mentioned as a favorite by users in their reviews of various other solitaire games. I waited for a while to see if it would go on sale, but this apparently has never happened.

Initially, I can see the appeal. In Faerie Solitaire, you collect “eggs” while playing levels, which you can then “hatch.” A creature is then revealed which will grow as you continue to play. Once the creature is “grown,” you can spend a combination of three different resources (also found within the levels) to “evolve” the creature. As far as I can tell, these creatures have no impact at all on completing the game’s solitaire levels – however, they provide an additional progress bar and goal to pursue for players.

A jigsaw puzzle program for the serious puzzler. Beautiful classical Art and holiday themed challenges. This is a EA program and still has some features to be added and you can run into some bugs, however the Developer is very involved and quickly responds to your concerns. There is a bit of a learning curve but nothing that shouldn’t be clear after the first puzzle or two.

This is not for the person looking for an hours entertainment. These puzzles are challenging and time consuming. They can take up to an hour or more just unloading the Puzzle box and organizing depending on the number of pieces you select. I have 192 hours logged as of this review and highly recommend this program.

This game brings a whole new take on the jigsaw puzzle theme, and attempts to recreate the true 3D feel of a puzzle board, including the box and all the pieces modeled as you would pick them up by hand, rotate them, and place them. Full keyboard control makes it very easy to move around (WASD and other natural key settings). The game is in EA so it’s understood that many features are still in development, but what is there on day one can already keep one entertained for very long, since there’s the option to play the puzzles also with very large numbers of pieces. Surely a project that deserves support!

Aurora Hex - Pattern Puzzles

Aurora Hex - Pattern Puzzles

aurora hex is similar to the developer’s previous game, aurorabound deluxe . you’re trying to recreate colorful patterns in both, but in this game you’re bothering hexagons instead of squares. it is also somewhat similar to loop .

Visually pleasing minimalist puzzler.

Almost same genre as jigsaw puzzles, but feels different.

UI & Visuals seem a bit more refined than the first title, while retaining a similar feel to play. :)

(Currently up to late World 1, out of 20 worlds, at time of review.

Also has Daily puzzles to unlock & Infinity mode to unlock)

Zen Blocks - Relaxing Puzzle Board Game

Zen Blocks - Relaxing Puzzle Board Game

I liked this game. Made simply and efficiently. I will note the advantages:

  1. Simple but interesting idea. Extremely comfortable to play using keyboard or gamepad

  2. Nice and pleasant soundtrack

  3. Optimization. The game is suitable for weak PCs

  4. Low price. The game is very affordable for almost everyone

Among the shortcomings, I note the lack of Steam achievements.

The game’s core concept is very simple, yet very enjoyable. It’s easy to pickup and drop. It’s the type of game that people would play when they’re on very short breaks. I believe that fits the name of the game very well, and adheres to what the product page tells you. It may have its flaws but those flaws didn’t ruin my Zen experience. If you’re on the lookout for a game to relax or spend a few extra minutes on, this is definitely a good pickup.

Faerie Solitaire

Faerie Solitaire

Disclaimer: I purchased this game using my own funds, and I do not write a review on a game that I have not paid for myself, because I believe they should be fair and unbiased. I don’t believe you can get that unless you invest your own funds and support developers, and provide a personal sense of “value”.

This has got to be one of the more enjoyable solitaire card games on the market. I have put over 52 hours into this addicting game. It has a fun background story (which does not interfere with the game play, but merely keeps you involved to continue on your journey), relaxing music, and simple mechanics with fun powerups to assist you along the way. A good value at its current asking price of $10, but I think as a casual game, I would wait for it to be on sale for around $5. It has achievements, trading cards, and is guaranteed to waste a LOT of your time if you are a fan of Faeries whatsoever.

An entertaining Solitaire game, with quite simple, but engaging gameplay; and a nice story about faeries. This game is good for some relaxing during an afternoon; even though it’s simple, there’s still some challenge to it. The aesthethic is really nice, featuring some nice backgrounds for each of the different levels, all following a fantasy theme.

The game offers several modes; an adventure mode, in which you play through 40 levels, following the story of a kid who encountered faeries, and all the dangers he encountered during his journey to save them which, although might sound unnecessary for a solitaire game, adds a nice backstory. There’s also a quickplay mode, in which you can replay any previously finished level, and a challenge mode, with some more difficult levels. Each level consists of 9 hands, and, while it’s not necessary to collect all cards in each hand, there’s still different objectives to complete in order to beat a level.

Scythe: Digital Edition

Scythe: Digital Edition

I’m a pretty experienced player on the board game, so I know what I’m talking about: this game follow the rules quite well, except for a few mistakes (mill that create meeples WTF?!)

the board is exactly the same as the real game, and even if I felt a bit lost cause there is no infos about your mat type except at the very beginning of the game or somewhere I never found quite easily, it would be nice to have the name of the combo ( example : rusviet patriotic ) all the time, to me this can be quite important as there is some combos that are very OP (Rusviet industrial is already banned wich follow the rules of Jamey Steigmaier, crimea patriotic should follow) but those combos should remain open if you play a non ranked game or with one of your friends )

Bought this game during steam sale.

I love the board version. Was pretty excited to test the digital version as well. Here is my review and why its pretty meh.

TLDR: good gameplay, terrible netcode/online games. Don’t bother buying the DLC (Invaders from afar) since factions are really bad and you will end playing them a lot more than people without the DLC. A bit expensive for the experience. Worth it for the $8 I paid during the sale.

1. Gameplay 7/10

Its pretty much the same as the board game. Works very well. It can be a bit troublesome at first to get a grisp on how to make a turn, read the boardstate etc but after around 30 games it feels really natural.

Fated Kingdom

Fated Kingdom

So, I have 60+ hours in on this game and I have to say, it’s been a lot of fun. I started streaming Fated Kingdom over a month ago. Since then I have made some new friends and discovered a whole new affection for board games.

Yes, there are things worth discussing, like the interpretation from Russian to English. There are also some phrasing or wording points that may seem unclear at first. Reaching out to the developers has helped a lot. The developers are still very active in the games development. From bug fixes to Rule updates. And they are quick to respond to questions on Steam and Discord.

Real player with 94.5 hrs in game

Fated Kingdoms is a promising game. Visually it looks great the artwork is stunning and the design of the game board/ dice/ tokens is fitting and of equally high quality.

Mechanic/rule wise the game is a bit lacking, the rules (in the English version) are very poorly explained, it is clear that English is not the primary language of the developer. Most of the times this is a mild annoyance but certain sections can be undecipherable leading to serious interpretation issues. Another problem is the lack of a clear objective. I understand that the rules are meant to be open and flexible but giving at least a few good suggestions for winning conditions is very relevant for new players, without them it just feels unrewarding.
