Might & Magic Clash of Heroes
Family Friendly Gaming

Excerpt: I can not recall who recommend Might & Magic Clash of Heroes to me. It may have been one of our friends at E3 2010. I am grateful to whomever it was, and apologize for not giving you full credit. Remind me and I will give you a shout out. This Nintendo DS game is part three match puzzle game, and part role playing. Players match up three of the same kind, and then they attack the enemies on the other screen. Each side has a life bar which goes up as they level up.
Excerpt: Judging from the colorful anime characters and soothing soundtrack, you might mistake Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes for a Japanese-style console role-playing game. But it's actually a unique hybrid game that offers an RPG-like Story mode complete with character progression, quests, and items--plus some light strategy elements--all wrapped around match-three-style puzzle gameplay similar to that of Puzzle Quest.
Pros: Interesting take on match-three puzzle gameplay, Lengthy Story mode, Engaging RPG elements, Colorful, attractive anime-style presentation
Cons: Puzzle elements are a bit clunky, Quick Battle and multiplayer don't offer any RPG-like progression
Conclusion: Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is one of those "just one more turn" games that is nearly impossible to stop playing. Battles are tough and sometimes unfair given the surprises that await you as you fight your way across the land of Ashan, but the puzzles are still fiendishly addictive.
Pros: Outstanding puzzle-based battle design with loads of units and strategic depth, Lengthy, challenging campaign, Charming story with anime-inspired character art.
Puzzles meet strategy in fun fantasy for older kids.

Summary: Parents need to know that Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes is a fantasy strategy game with no graphic violence, though some of the still images used to progress the story show dead heroes (without blood) and scary demons. The story has players taking on the role of plainly good characters who are attempting to protect the land and those they love from an encroaching evil; nothing too deep, but also nothing particularly concerning.
Wallace & Gromit’s Grand Adventures: Fright of the Bumblebees
13 June 2010
Excerpt: New from episodic content specialists Telltale Games, comes the first of a four part series of point and clickers based on the adventures of Nick Park’s comedy creation, Wallace and Gromit. In this first episode, Wallace decides to go into the honey producing business to keep his creditors away from the door, but as is usual in their adventures, the technology goes all wrong, and before we know it, the village is overcome with the giant bumblebees of the title.
Excerpt: The combination of genres has been a popular idea over the past few years and to date has kept things more than interesting, but to experiment with such a prestigious franchise like Might and Magic was a gamble truly worth keeping an eye on. Good thing too, as Might and Magic Clash of Heroes is a title that offers a number of different gaming elements that keeps the title exciting at every bend.
Excerpt: After reading an article about Capybara Games in a local paper, I just knew we had to interview them about the upcoming DS title whose release is rapidly approaching, Might and Magic: Clash of Heroes . Besides being located in my hometown of Toronto, Capybara also looked like it had a handle on how to take a simple concept and turn it into an addictive and entertaining game, which as it turns out is certainly the case with Clash of Heroes .
