Oh- maybe I'll check it out then- looked more sim than adventure.

I was a little unsure of this game at first glance. I have downloaded the demo and have to admit..I LOVE it. It is simple..perfect game to chill out to..love the mini games..didn't want to see the demo end..and it ended in a flash. You can get so into this game the time flies!! For me this is definately a purchase!!

I'm downloading demo right now as well. It looks kind of interesting. Will give it a try. Don't really like the sim type of games, like where you have to build towns and maintain people, etc. Usually prefer HO games. Will make a comment after I play the demo. Happy gaming all

For once you and I differ, Poodle.

Weird, with annoying sounds and timers...

I played this game for 20 minutes. Did not like it. I guess I will just have to play some of my games over again until something good comes out.

I played the game to the end. The game lacked real challenges!

Even, though, it had Mah Jong solitaire, bubble pop, match 3 games. The only game with a timer was the solitaire game. And you can leave the game anytime you wanted to.

As long as you had enough of your resources, you can breeze through a level. And for the Orbs, they made the passage even faster. The pirates would come and only want part of your resources, so why pay.

And the story was pointless. They are talking about the 16 islands and I thought something great would happen once I completed the 15 kingdoms. But nothing happened. They most or less said forget it all.

The game for me was meaning less!

This game lacked the meat and potatoes that other games offer!

The game is cute - but VERY short - only 15 total levels, including the first 3 or 4 where you don't do much. My 9 year old granddaughter loves it. I was disappointed. There is no challenge for an adult, but it beats twiddling your thumbs, lol. Happy holidays everyone! God bless you.

I was playing the demo and I was liking the game and wanted to buy it but I found that the controls were awful - you have a time limit in the Mahjongg game but if you click pairs of tiles fast then the game software cannot keep up. So frustrating!
I think that any halfway decent Mahjongg player would click too fast for this game.

I would have to agree with you Poodle I just downloaded it to try for something different. I really don't like timers or management games but this was different in that it was just puzzles. I enjoyed it but I have to say that it was weird at first. Obviously you were playing for awhile so you can replay levels?? Anyways, just wanted to let you know that I also found this weird and lovable, just like me

I agree. Found the game more annoying than fun. Didn't like the way the wood game faded out when you touched it, the pizza game and food game were a bit dumb. The characters were very unlikable. The architect was a suck-up and the queen was a b----. The helper was a bit ditzy. After only 15 min. my right hand is numb. Thanks, but no thanks. Just weird, not lovable. Sorry Poodlebear. I usually agree with you but not on this one. Loved the web game from yesterday.

Bribling,

I did have Tropix 2 - The Quest for the Golden Banana and I loved it, but it eventually kept crashing. It was a huge program when I finally gave up and deleted it.

It came from the 'other' place. I never in a million years thought I'd enjoy a game with monkeys, lol. I could only do about 3 of the games too but they were fun.

I wish someone would make one like that that worked. It was the first game where I occasionally enjoyed buying the things.

I think I'll skip this one w/o trying it.

played for about half hour, don't like it. my cursor was floating all over. made it so i couldn't click on the majong tiles quick enough which made me run out of time, 3x. there's no way to get rid of that cursor either. very annoying.

Wasn't going to try it, because I don't like Sims games, but on Poodle's recommendation, I'm dl'ing now. Will let you know how I like it. Got the Web yesterday. Oh, I'm soooo far over my six games, LOL.

I tried Chocolatier, since I had a bunch of PlayGold left, and their $4.99 sale was still on Tuesday. Surprise! I loved it! Bought all three. Guess I'm broadening my gaming horizons.

I've had this game for a long time (well over a year), and still go back to play it. This, Be A King, and Plants vs Zombies have had the most reply time of anything I've gotten here!

The first two are no stress, which I like/need. P vs Z is a hoot, plus there's always the Zen Garden to go to

I thought that was the nicest innovation! It lets you know what's underneath that you're going to make visible if you use that tile as opposed to one of the others of the same.

Not that it's enough for me to buy the game. Knowing that it's so short, as well as the cutesy graphics, it's not worth a purchase for me. And my nephews are way too old and too far away.

But I'm happy to recommend it to other people's grandchildren!
