Gamedaily has posted two casual game reviews, one on Faires, and the other on Mystery Files: Huntsville. Both games are a product of casual game developer/publisher Big Fish Games. In Faires, gamers control the most powerful wizard in the world set to defeat an unknown evil destroying the surrounding peace and trapping faires. Mystery Files: Huntsville is a puzzle game in which gamers solve crime cases to ascend to the rank of Master Detective.
Mystery Files: Huntsville excerpt:
Unlike those Find the Hidden Picture games of yore, Mystery Case Files: Huntsville ups the challenge quite a bit by telling you what items you are looking for, but not showing you a picture so you know what you are looking for. The game is based around the premise that you, the player, are a really skilled detective, and that you need to search for clues in order to solve the various crimes committed in and around Huntsville. The clues are items hidden within the various locations in town, and at each place, you get a list of things to search for, a time limit, and go to it.Faires excerpt:
The game is very simple. Some fairies are stuck inside of jars, and you must line up three fairies of similar colors in order to free them. It is the same basic premise as many other puzzle games out there, and in fact, the gameplay is nothing special. However, the graphics and music are, and that is what impressed me the most. The music is very soft, new-agey Celtic music, complete with whispering voices, that provides a soothing background to the game. I usually turn off the music in games, but when I played Fairies, I gladly let it play. The graphics are gorgeous, and each fairy is colorful, glowy, and detailed, yet still completely mystical.Please click on the links below to read the reviews and to learn more information.
