French developer Funpause recently released Fairies, a color matching puzzle game with 3D graphics and hand drawn illustrations. Players must slide rows of fairies imprisoned in jars to create a match of 3 or more fairies of the same color to set the creatures free and score points. The game spans more than 200 levels within 5 whimsical worlds and features 4 different play modes from which to choose.
The game modes include: "Adventure," which takes the player on a journey through 100 levels and 5 worlds, working against the clock while freeing a certain amount of fairies within the set time allowed; With "Classic" mode, players make the matches of fairies and play through a fast-paced 100 levels; When playing in "Relaxed" mode, players do not have any time constraints, but rather, have an unlimited amount of time and the level continues leisurely until the player wishes to end game play; "Playback" mode is a test for players' memory by showing patterns and playing sounds that are to be repeated correctly.Funpause is also the developer of the puzzle game Atlantis. Fairies requires Mac OS X, a G4 667Mhz (1 Ghz recommended) processor, 128 MB of RAM, and 40 MB of hard disk space.
Additionally, there are stunning images of fairies imbedded in each world of "Adventure" mode. After solving a level, the player removes a partial fragment of a covered image. Once all fragments are removed, the entire image is revealed. There are a total of 10 images, and when the player reveals these images, he can then view them in a "photo album of fairies" included in the game.
A free demo version of Fairies is available for download at the Funpause website. The full version costs $19.95. Follow the links below for more information.
