For those of you who are tired of all gloomy thrill and mysterious disappearances Intenium and alt.A Games have created a happy-go-lucky game that will bring you lots of goofy fun. Tulula: Legend of a Volcano can be hardly described as a challenging game, but it’s really bright and diverse.
The game is a mixture of an adventure, HOG, arcade game, puzzle and even resource management game (you’ll need to restore a village). But its main advantage is friendliness. From the moment when you’re proposed to write your glorious name you feel that you’ll be praised for every move you make. If you lack the praise at work or didn’t get enough warm words for your achievements when you were a child, it’s the proper time to fill the gap!
As it always happens to the priests or followers of any belief or order, the dark priests of the Chaos God are dreaming of nothing else but resurrection of their master. The events take place in the non-remarkable village of Westwind where it has been peace and quite for many years. Being a daughter of two great Shamans of the village, who are so inconveniently dead, you have nothing to do, but come to Westwind to fight the evil and its henchmen. Fortunately, your mission is more than possible, as you’ll deal with the habitual tasks of hidden object game.
Though now every child knows that America was firstly visited by Vikings, not Columbus, can you imagine how the history could twist if Christopher had lost on his way back home from Portugal? The storyline of a new hidden object adventure game Columbus: Ghost of the Mystery Stone starts right with the moment of ship’s crash and now it’s up to you to help Columbus to get back home with an extra bonus - the treasures found. Otherwise the colonization of America might be under a question along with tobacco, Aztecs’s culture and both Mac OS and Windows…
Do you dream when you sleep? Have you
ever thought to go to the shrink because of the dreams you have? The
sequel of Dominic Crane's Dreamscape Mystery called Dominic Crane 2:
Dark Mystery Revealed starts once again on the sofa of a
psychoanalyst. But now Dominic is worried not about recurring night
visions of the places he's never been to (perhaps he's got used to
that) but he cares about his sister that talks to him in his dreams.
One may say that due to Sigmund Freud or whoever else of that list this might
be the result of latent attraction if not only one thing...
The trick of the gameplot is that Crane's sister has been missing since
she was a child. And now she comes to her brother's dreams as adult
asking for some help.
A nightmare is a way to get prepared for a day. This must be a motto of Kiera Vale, the heroine of the new Puzzle Adventure game called Nightmare Adventures: The Witch's Prison. The girl gets an enigmatic letter from a guy she doesn't know. This message brings her to the Blackwater Asylum. The eerie atmosphere of the place is greatly conveyed by means of graphics and truly corresponds to the game title. Wondering round the locations as Kiera you're supposed to find out who were the birth parents of the young lady (the gameplot includes even a DNA test) and reveal all the truth about Alton Quinn, a sloppy guy who invited Kiera to the Asylum. Just get prepared that the things happening to you during the game will go from a little creepy to really weird.

Experience nice graphics, good sound effects and save your Dad, exploring gorgeous scenes with a good mix of easy and harder to find objects in this wonderful adventure game.

Kate Arrow: Deserted Wood tells us about the adventure of Kate and her efforts to rescue her kidnapped grandfather and restore stolen idols to a native tribe. This is a fairly straight-forward HOG/adventure game, combining the HOG search and elements of point-and-click adventue, such as the recent releases Puppetshow or Midnight Mysteries. This type of HOG is actually my favourite - search a cluttered scene, get an object to help me in my quest and on it goes. The structure of Kate Arrow's gameplay is solid enough - player is required to travel back and forth over 4 locations or so in each chapter, with sparkly HOG searches popping up.
