A Vampire Romance: Paris Stories is one of the latest releases to the hidden object genre. Having played this game I feel like I made a trip to the past due to the way the game looked and played. The story reminds a bit the Twilight movie story. In this game you play as a young girl who comes to Paris to study art. There she meets this mysterious guy, and as you can guess from the title, things get romantic but complicated. So if Twilight story wasn't enough for you, you can also enjoy this version of the girl-meets-vampire story. Now I have to explaain why I said before that it felt like I travelled back in time. The game basically consists of good old hidden object levels and mini-games of different kinds. There is also a part with iteractive searches, but it isn't that big part of the game, and it isn't that challenging too. You don't have to think hard where to use what and how to get somewhere. Everything is pretty easy here.
Lost in The City is a thrilling quest game with a completely engaging story, addictive game play and high quality graphics. Though some of the features might be annoying, on the whole the game is definitely worth trying. It is called "The gloomiest story of love and hate", and I'm rather prone to agree. But I'll let you discover the whole story by yourself and talk about the game play instead.
For each chapter you'll have a number of tasks to complete. Some of
them are presented in a strict sequence and some can be fulfilled in
any order. There are also some mini-games, mostly jigsaw puzzles, to make the game play a bit more diverse.

The game features an interesting story, great graphics and lots of seek-and-find levels and mini-games. You go to Egypt both geographically and through time to save life and love of two people. As you may guess from the title, the
main character is Annabel. She is just a tourist in Egypt visiting one
of the museums there. This
trip to the museum led her farther than she shought. She is told the story of another Annabel who was Egyptian and lived long ago. She looks just like the princess and has a chance to save the princess's fate and her boyfriend's life. All in all the game is very enjoyable and offers a good change with its 3D graphics.
Sea Journey is a new match-three game developed by Avreliy Games and published by Divo Games.
The game takes you through battles on the sea and battles on a
match-three board. By the way, the outcome of the former ones will
directly depend on the results in the latter ones. The main character is a son of well-known pirates. But he himself refused to be a pirate and decided to lead the life of a merchant. Despite
the intentions of this guy, the family roots still get him into
pirating, when he one day meets an old man with a message from his
father. The game is a great experience because of everything it has to offer. The battles do make it more motivating and challenging.
