Fairies Reviewed
8:10 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Yesterday Macworld's Game Room posted a review of Funpause's colorful puzzle game Fairies. The game follows the familiar color matching theme of other titles while adding a few new twists for variety. Fairies' enjoyable gameplay resulted in 4 out of 5 mice from Macworld.

All of this action is fairly typical of this type of puzzle game. What makes Fairies special, however, is its Playback mode. Playback is a memory game. You listen and watch as differently colored groups of fairies sound off musical notes. Then you have to play them back in sequence. Levels get progressively more difficult. It’s similar the old electronic game Simon—and it’s a lot of fun.
