Summary: I played Mysteryville first. Mysteryville works great all the way through. I was having a blast playing Jewel Quest. You have to find hidden jewels and coins in each puzzle in addition to the hidden items. It actually has a storyline you follow and it's okay. However, when you get to the last location the "Puzzle" game where you have to turn all the squares to gold by inserting preselected "blocks" of squares and turning on switches; when you run out of time, instead of...
Summary: Love these types of games but to play on a DSI - way too small of an area for someone older. I have these for the computer, and just fine, but trying to find the objects on a DSI has been so challenging that I would not recommend it for anyone with glasses or with not the best eye sight. Not as enjoyable. Though nice you had two games in one purchase.
Summary: Both games are timed which I don't like. I play games to relax, not race. Jewel Quest is okay, a mix of seek and find, jewel quest and a weird gold tile game that exhausts a lot of my limited time. Mysteryville is dumb. The storyline is dumb, the characters are dumb and its short. Its a seek n' find game, which again is timed. I completed Mysteryville in a few hours while we were watching movies.
Summary: It's a seek and find game - that's all it is. I must be missing something because I got to the end of it twice. Surely there is more to it than this. I did not like the flashlight feature or the silhouette puzzles. Really simple and not in a good way. What did I collect all those coins and jewels for?
Summary: The mystery is why the prominent words in the title are "Jewel Quest"; because that's a minor portion of that half of this duo. The Jewel Quest part is more seek/find of mass smatterings of objects with differing combinations to find. You need young eyes to see some of the objects which are mere shadows. For every minute you play 3-in-a-row, you'll play many, many minutes of the seek/find. The Mysteryville portion has a silly overall story.
Summary: Initially this game is good. Keeps the memory going and the different areas are fun. However, it doesn't take long to complete it and if you have a very good memory such as mine then it becomes boring very quickly. The best sections are the puzzle sections. As the for mysterville game this is harder but pointless. If you have played this type of game before then I am sure this will not rate top of your list. Shame as previous reviews have been very good.
