What Casual Games Are You Playing Right Now, Continued

Since the other thread was getting so long, I'm starting a new one. Please post here to tell us what casual games you're playing and what you think of them.

I just finished Cursed Memories: Agony Creek. I liked the story, it drew me in. I was scared at least 3 times, that's a plus! Nice graphics, dark but not unpleasant. There were Hidden object scenes but they were clear and fairly easy plus the hint recharge was nice and swift. The biggest downfall for me were the puzzles which were extremely easy (although this may be a plus for some gamers). The only puzzle that took more than a minute to complete was a slider (I like sliders) and that was only because I couldn't figure out what the pic was.

I understand how you feel about sliders, but let's face it, adventure game developers love putting them in their games. I used to hate them but then I viewed them as a challenge and the more I did the more I grew to like the satisfying feeling of solving them!

As for the length of the game, it was very short but I think that was due to the lack of difficulty in the puzzles. I played it on the casual setting because I like to get hints in the hidden object scenes, so it might be different in the more difficult setting.

I always play in Expert mode to make these games last longer.

On your recommendation, Wasabipug, I am now playing Enigmatis and really enjoying it!

I am glad Rosaboobie, I really liked that one. The only thing I didn't like, and you've probably gotten past this was the computer puzzle where you had to make shapes. I just couldn't figure it out! The rest of the game was very good

You should check out Mystery Legends Beauty and the Beast if you haven't, I really enjoyed that as well

I need to buy just one more game before the end of the month to fill up my punch card, and it might well be Beauty & The Beast :wink:

I played Drawn 3 - it was good, but prehaps not as good as the first two?

I loved the pop-up card puzzles, Skeeter, but I think Drawn 3 was a bit too short compared to the other two.

I really loved the first Drawn, the second not so much, but I loved not having Hidden Object Scenes

Yes the book pages were very good!
