If you are looking for a varied challenge, then please, swing by BFG and download Antique Road Trip: American Dreamin‘ right now! While it is a hidden object game, it has none of the dark tones of many of the games out there, and since it is free to play, you will only be losing the time you put into to it, unless you want to purchase little side items to make it run quicker. this is no rush to the end of the game, because, like LOTRO, it is always being updated. In fact, they just tied up their Thanksgiving holiday special, and I am really looking forward to the one for the winter holidays.
While it was a great idea to come up with a hidden object game that is purely hidden objects, the execution of this game seemed lacking. The jazzy music seemed fine at the beginning, but soon grew repetitive and droning on, which made me sleepy and therefore I could not concentrate on the game itself. So, if you try this, make sure you go into the options menu and turn off the background music.
There are most likely going to be many holiday themed games out there this week, but this fun little hidden object game was a nice break from the darker mysteries we are used to seeing. This game focuses on two kids from the Heartland, Emma and Mike, and the fun they have in being part of the Easter celebrations out on the farm and in their town as they join their classmates on a fun springtime field trip.
This game is filled with just about everything that Ostara is about, the flowers, candy, farm animals, painted eggs, both from the kitchen and the Faberge’ designs. Little logic puzzles, spot the differences, and other kinds of visual mini-games. This game is perfect for everyone, and the kids will love it, especially if they are fans of the Highlights for Children magazines, because this game has many of the same features as that classic schoolroom periodical.
This is the second installment of the Turbo series from Oberon Games, and it it is far superior to the first in many ways. Rebecca and Robert have gotten out of town to a Big Apple vacay to visit with Rebecca’s rich aunt Rhonda, whom sets them up with a new challenge and an old subway car. She was so impressed with their success with Turbo Pizza, that now they are running Turbo Subs!They are now in a service on the go sub shop, and the customers are far different from the ones they met at home. Artists, businesspeople, tourists, street musicians and more are riding the trains all day long, and are very pleased to have such a tasty surprise on their train, but that is not all!
This little hidden object game was a bit different. We were also dealing with time management, and ended up with sort of a free bonus cookbook in the process. This is the sequel to 2 Tasty, which will be the next review I do. While I’m sort of coming in in the middle of the backstory of the tale of Libby and Cole, that part of the game is sort of distracting to the main plot. Every time I was pulled out of the game, and into this filmstrip tale of a possible romantic triangle, I found myself wanting to skip through to get back to the game itself. Now for the game, at first, I was having a little trouble with the mechanics of it. It is a hidden object game, but there are no logic puzzles, and this is no mystery. It is merely a hunt down the ingredients to make tasty treats for your customers, and get them out before they lose patience, much like in many time management games.
