Tuber versus the Aliens is a different kind of puzzle game, featuring strategy, in a colourful setting. It seems like it might be similar to Go, or Othello, but it goes a bit beyond that. Tuber has been sent out as a soldier to take on these aliens that are using solar shields as their power source. Tuber has to destroy the cells to free up the parts of the world these aliens have covered up. In each battle, Tuber is given territory, as are the aliens, and to stop them, he as to taken out the coloured shields that the aliens are holding. Sometimes the small shields change colours, but, unless Tuber has a tool to unlock the colour of the shield the aliens are holding, he cannot take out that colour. Sometimes the game can be a little frustrating, but strategy games are not supposed to be easy. These aliens are really going to put up a fight. It is worth the fight when you are able to take out another part of the solar shield so those aliens get a little weaker. This is one game strategy gamers will really enjoy, and it’s kind of cute, too.
The title of this casual game says it all, Hidden Object Crosswords, takes two of the world’s best loved forms of puzzles and has melded them into one rather timely and difficult game. This is one game you cannot rush through. Even though you might know exactly what the word is for the crossword using the clues, you still need to find the the object in the pictures that accompany the puzzle. Sometimes, the objects are a bit archaic-looking, and you might not recognize them for what they are supposed to be at first. Logic and keen eyesight are your best friends when taking on this challenge. If you are of an MMO mindset, where you feel you need to rush through the game to get to the end, then Hidden Object Crosswords is not for you. This takes skill and thought, which many rushing gamers tend not to use.
