Santa’s Christmas Solitaire 2

Santa’s Christmas Solitaire 2

Santa’s Christmas Solitaire 2 has even more to love than first one. New Christmas story. Snowball fights with stars earned based on how many turns you take (getting harder further along in levels). I’m slightly addicted to the snowball fights. One Up/One Down, Pair Match, and Sum 14 game play choices…which basically gives you 3 Games in One. 3 difficulty levels. Mini games you can play during solitaire or turn off. Laughed with what happened when lost a chimney mini game. Additional bonus solitaire games off menu. Options have volume adjustments and plenty of holiday card/cursor choices. Peppy music. Advent calendar map for levels and now 4 stars per game to get. A Shop to buy power ups with in-game coins. Price is right since you can play this game 3 different ways. The devs were nice and responded quickly to questions. Enjoy this Christmas game. Now back to saving Christmas…

The sequel to the first Santa’s Christmas Solitaire game by Revills games, with some new elements added so it is not an exact clone. Enjoyable all around in it’s simplicity of play, graphics, music and cheesy story line, just like the first.

SCS 2’s basic play is the same as the first, based on the Advent calendar, there are 24 “doors” with 10 stages each of solitaire game play. You must achieve a minimum number of stars each stage to open the next stage as well as to open the next door. As you play you collect coins to use in the store, to buy items to help your gameplay as well as help you in a new part of the game: snowball fights! Generally the 10th stage in each door is a snowball fight, that when done correctly will finish the stage and door for you. If you should happen to not care for the snowball fights you may skip them and just play the stage as a regular solitaire type.

Ember Knight Solitaire

Ember Knight Solitaire

Probably one of the more complex solitaire games I’ve played so far, Ember Knight Solitaire doesn’t restrict itself to this genre, borrowing instead mechanics from Match 3, Blackjack, Hidden Objects and topping all of the above with a nice RPG feel.

Naturally, it contains all the elements that you’d expect in any decent solitaire game: power-ups that recharge with your matches, bonus cards and jokers, special cards on the board that you’d have to unlock with a key / hammer etc or that require to be matched several times based on their number or suite etc. There are plenty of levels (200 in fact) in which you can experience all sorts of combinations from these mechanics. Additionally, you can also choose between 3 difficulty settings (Beginner / Normal / Expert) and 3 different game modes: the classic solitaire where you need to select a card one unit higher / lower than the current one, a pair solitaire - in which you need to make pairs of the same card, and a mode that I’ve never encountered before requiring matches of two cards that add to a 14 unit total. The difficulty or the game mode can be changed any time before starting a level, and the bonuses / coins acquired are kept between different modes.

I am a huge supporter of Revills Games and own all of them loving the original artworks throughout their games and this one is no exception. However some notes on the game-play both positive and negative from 9 hours of game-play so far.

The positive; the artwork is as usual beautiful and I really loved getting to chose my character at the beginning. Gave it a rpg feel to a solitaire game. That is a very neat addition. Also the mix of game-play within the game (not just solitaire but match 3 and a lite card battler as well)! The soundtrack is good but their is no voice overs. That can be good or bad. I know in Chef Solitaire there is a voice over for the main character which I find was really well done and added to the game but since there is choose your own character at the beginning I am guessing this is why it’s just text based.

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars Demo

Voice of Cards: The Isle Dragon Roars Demo

I’ll just be straight to the point, I enjoyed the Demo. The presentation is both unique and well done. And while the story, at least in the demo, isn’t something we’ve seen in other RPGs or even D&D sessions, it tells it well and, since it is a demo, can go many directions with it. Just give the free Demo a try and see if it is your cup of tea as well.

This review is for the Demo. There is nothing compelling about the gameplay OR story. The UI is maddening because you have to click options twice. Speaking of clicking, this game is essentially a point and click game but a bit more arduous because of the aforementioned UI. The characters are bland af and there didn’t seem to be any tech tree or customization options. The combat system is so bleh. Is this game geared toward the 7-10 age range? Although the story wasn’t compelling, I did appreciate the writing style and the wit/humor. I also didn’t mind the mini games within (it was nothing special, but I enjoyed that aspect of it nonetheless).

Just like the others in this series–same music, same game play. I like them for a mindless time passer.

Princess Battles

Princess Battles

Fun game, would be great if it were a little longer but definitely worth buying and playing. Yes, you have to deal with a bratty princess to start out, but there’s actual choice about which way she develops. She isn’t a pushover, which is rather nice. There are a number of interesting endings, which add to playing time and value.

Artwork is very nice, main story and story arcs are well done, card battles are slightly repetitive but the difficulty progression is good (especially the first time through). And despite the repetition, I did find the card games fun.

I was hesitant to buy this. The price seemed a bit expensive and what little I saw of the writing seemed a bit simple. I say seemed, because actually I had a ball with this game! The graphics are pretty, and I love the different dresses for the MC! All of the characters, including the MC, are really likable! Gerald is my absolute favorite, I was smiling through all of his scenes! (I will say it felt more like 3 love interests, not 4). I love that we get extra stories and free play mode. The card battles are fun, and I like that we can customize our deck in free play. The difficulty felt right, since I lost as many times as I won.

Good programming game. The concept is very simple, but the problems are complex and challenging, and with all keywords “a=b” language is actually Turing-complete, so this is fun.

I haven’t played much of the game, but I’ve beaten chapters 1 and (almost) 2, and it seems quite fun. However, you should be aware that the game doesn’t strictly stick to having A=B be the only instruction - but so far the extra mechanics seem scaled back enough that it’s still true to the spirit of the idea.

Despite that, I’m enjoying my time with the game a lot. It encourages you to think outside the box and the restricted instruction sets make it very interesting to solve problems. I do wish the main menu was a bit more inviting (give some sort of indicator of where to click first perhaps?) as it does drop you in with little fanfare, but overall I’d say it’s a good purchase at the modest price tag it has right now. Very cool and fun concept :)

Shisensho Solitaire

Shisensho Solitaire

I received a free key for this game but I wasn’t expecting much and was blown away by the game.

This is not the usual type of Mahjong. Rather it uses Mahjong tiles to create a puzzle. The player needs to remove tiles in pairs, but only if they are on the same side or next to each other. These are randomly created puzzles that you can choose “solvable” or “random” depending on your style of play. Also there are 3 different sizes of boards from small to large. And different modes of play: Casual (includes hints), Regular (no hints), Time Attack, Mini-Game. There are Leaderboards to encourage you to try to beat your last best time and inch up the boards.

Simple, pleasant and fun, a darn good casual game.

It comes with several modes of play, standard, casual, timed and quick I believe, and all are fun to accomplish.

The game offers night mode, with a dimmer screen, and two sets of pieces for those who would prefer something other than the mah jong symbols.

There are plenty of achievements for those who like them, as well.

Perhaps most notable is the music, seven delightful tunes that float in the background nicely.

No hesitation of giving this one two thumbs up. It’s simple fun, but sometimes that is what I am looking for. This one does that perfectly.
