Alawar Games of Fate

Summary: Loved the game and the reality graphics were great! Alawar is so great I ordered a few more games...very reasonable too! If you love hidden object games.....these are the best! My rate is 100%!
Summary: This is one of the better Seek & Find games. The back story is intriguing and kept me playing “just one more level”. I’m at that age where they recommend doing puzzles and mind games to keep the gray matter working and, to tell the truth, I’m up to here with crosswords and Sudoku. I enjoy these little computer games, they are fun and the added bonus is that it keeps granny alert and amused.
Summary: I will download the first of this series soon as the price comes down to the price of the second game. I have enjoyed playing this game, the graphics could have been a little better, but other than that it was a fun game to complete.
The Treasures of Mystery Island 2: The Gates of Fate

Summary: I haven't played all of it but, the portion I have played is very tantalizing. It is similar to most search games. I like these games because they are so "G" rated and good for childern and teens.
Summary: The first Treasures of Mystery Island game, "The Ghost Ship" was quite good! The player character is easy to get into, the puzzles make sense and aren't overly hard or dorky. This is the sequel in the loosest sense of the word. The player character switches between a surfer guy and a blonde airhead, neither of whom are believable. And I only got about 30 minutes of play time before it crashed, and kept crashing, and I couldn't get it to work no matter what.
Summary: I've played this several times now. It is a find-the-objects game. The game downloaded easily from Amazon onto my computer. Bad sides: the graphics are static, and the story is hokey. However, I've enjoyed playing well enough to be glad I bought it.
Summary: Rather than you determine what objects you need to be successful at each level, this game tells you what you need then has you stop in each screen and find pieces of the required object -- booooorrrrriiiiiinnnnnnggggg! At least it doesn't make you stop in each new screen and hunt through a pile of junk that has little if anything to do with the scheme of the game. But this isn't much better.
Summary: This is a typical Alawar HOG and is true to Alawar in quality, graphics, sound, and storyline. I have not had a bad experience with the Alawar line yet. The puzzles are not too hard or too easy and you can get hints to keep the pace moving.
Summary: I found this one very entertaining. First of all, no HOG objects that weren't needed to perform some task. Second of all, no tasks that didn't have some purpose to further the storyline. My only complaint was that there were some pretty obvious pieces missing from the story at the beginning that would have made the ending much more logical. But all in all, a very nice game. The cut scenes were a bit "plastic" looking, but the game art was top notch.
