Luxor 3 (Windows)

Not bad!

The Good
While this is a 'casual' game..... it offers MANY levels with engaging sound effects and music.

The Bad
Hard to say, really. It is what it is and it does what it does.

The Bottom Line
If you like 'marbles' game aka 'Candy Crush'-style material, you will probably like this one!

all my friends are frogs (Browser)


The Good
Like many things made, using the Bitsy creation engine, this is cute and clever but not much of a game. The player moves the frog around a field and can do minor exploration in a pond or two. The 'talking' to other frogs is pretty minimalist.

The Bad
Not a lot going on, really.

The Bottom Line
An OK exploration of the capabilities of the Bitsy game creation engine.

Audiosurf (Windows)

Crosses the line between 'game' and 'experience'!

The Good
The sheer bottomless-pit that is the capabilities here is a huge blast! I've played country songs, bluegrass songs, R&B, Pop, Rock.....EVERYTHING. East song generates a new 'track' for you to ride......Boys To Men is my MAJOR chill out choice for this game.

The Bad
It'd be nice if each ship's capabilities (jumping, expanding etc.) we made a bit clearer.

The Bottom Line
A game built very broadly around the idea of a music visualizer, with which you can interact.

Balda (Windows 3.x)

A decent time-waster.

The Good
Generally speaking, it's one of those cute one-screen Windows 3.1 games. I liked the little purple guy who stands at the top of the box, tapping his foot, waiting for you to make your move. The sounds are decent, but not earth-shattering. It has a good array of difficulty levels, which can be adjusted depending on how "literate" you may be feeling from one day to the next.

The Bad
Not much....a'lot more could've been done, but as I previously mentioned, it's just a cute little game. Remember, this game was developed and published by two different RUSSIAN companies, so you have to cut them a little slack. It's kind of funny, when you press the exit icon, a window pops up asking, "Do you want to Finish?"......not "Do you want to exit?" A little language goof-up, there.

The Bottom Line
For a cheap, simplistic game to help pass some free time, this one might be worth a go.

Dizzypad - Frog Jump Fun (iPhone)


The Good
It has that "magic something" that keeps you coming back for just "one more try"!!! It's a rare thing to say that the music in a casual game like this is such a huge plus, but it is!

The Bad
Very little, actually! The controls are VERY SENSITIVE, which matters in latter parts of the game.

The Bottom Line
A casual, yet engrossing game......a very modernized form of Frogger (somewhat), truly refined for today's touch-style devices.

Lab Rat (Windows)

Generally speaking....not bad.

The Good
The music is really cool, and the overall layout of the mazes are pretty nice. The game comes with a massive number of mazes so it has long-term playability in that regard. You can load your own photos/images so that as the mouse moves throughout the maze, the image is gradually revealed (behind the maze itself). The controls are adequate, and it makes for a neat little "pick-up" game. The game's website is pretty cool.

The Bad
Nothing, really, other than the whole "run your rat through the maze" thing gets a tiny bit old after a while.

The Bottom Line
A quickie little download game, for some brief diversion.
