I am starting a new thread (part three) of What Casual Games Are You Playing Right Now? so that we can continue our discussion, as the last thread is getting very long.

For those wishing to read the previous thread which was part two, it can be found here.

I just finished Living Legends: Voice of the Sea. It's just an okay game. Story and graphics are fine. Puzzles are a big mix of super easy to a couple semi-hard; none of them great or particularly fun. The best ones were in the "Collections" section after the game. (Sorry Marian. I know you didn't play this yet. I hope I'm not spoiling it for you.)

I finished Runefall last week and started Legend of Egypt: Jewel of the Gods last night. It's okay so far.

I'm having trouble playing lately. I feel like I want to but then I never quite get around to it. I have a few Adventure games going and they're good but sometimes days go by in between plays. duh

You haven't spoiled anything, ob, no worries. smile

I have been in those slumps before. It will pass!

I just started Beyond - Star Descendant. Its very good so far and its much different than the usual hidden object fare.

I really liked Beyond: Star Descendant. I liked Beyond: Light Advent, the first game in the series, even better, and I have played that more than once.

Good to know Marian. I do have the sequel lined up to play also.

I have the Beyond series (not played).

I am replaying LOTW: Secrets of Easter Island now. It is one of the top four in the series, and is a satisfyingly long game. There are the usual Collectibles to seek as you go. Some of the puzzles are pretty challenging, if you play on the Hard setting (you have the option to choose Easy). I've taken lots of notes as I've gone along. An onboard Map lets you hop around rather than doing a lot of tedious back-tracking "on foot."

For the most part, the game follows the same formula we know so well, but it introduces some novel uses for Inventory that had me chuckling and some puzzles that were totally new in design and real head-scratchers. The art work is detailed and well rendered, albeit a tad too "colorized" to be realistic. The story line is the usual save-the-world thing. I'm enjoying the replay because the game is so complex that you couldn't remember everything when replaying it three years later. :-)

I have played that Labyrinths of the World game once, Reenie, and I could easily replay it now because I don't remember much of it at all. I remember it had a very good length.

I am currently playing the Gothic Fiction: Dark Saga CE. I played it once years ago and am enjoying it the second time around. It is more of an adventure game, as it has no hidden object scenes.

I finished the Gothic Fiction: Dark Saga CE. The game was good, but I actually enjoyed the bonus game more than the main game.

Yesterday I started the Agency of Anomalies: Mind Invasion CE. This is the first time I have played this one.

I finished Botanica: Into the Unknown. I liked it but could have liked it better. I didn't like some of the puzzles.

I seem to remember liking all of the Agency of Anomalies games though.

I haven't started another casual yet.

I don't remember the puzzles in Into the Unknown. Are you going to play the other Botanica game? The same character is in the second game so I guess it's a sequel of sorts.

I am enjoying Mind Invasion so far.

Yes, I will be playing the second Botanica game but with something inbetween.

I hope you continue to enjoy Mind Invasion. I'm thinking you will.

Having dropped Goosebumps for the time being, as per my post on the "Goosebumps the Game" thread, I'm now plating City Legends : The Curse of the Crimson Shadow grin

Curse of the Crimson Shadow got some good reviews. I hope you like it, Mad.

I finished The Agency of Anomalies: Mind Invasion CE. The bonus game was quite lengthy.

Last night I started Amazing Adventures: The Forgotten Dynasty which is straight HOG, and today I started Mystery Case Files: The Revenant's Hunt. So far, so good for both games!

Haven't had a lot of "play" time lately but I am really enjoying City Legends : The Curse of the Crimson Shadow.

Because, thankfully, it is NOT stupidly full of smoke and glowing eyes and other such stuff - which I half expected it to be considering the title lol

That is good news, Mad - Curse of the Crimson Shadow does sound like a candidate for the glowing eyes and smoke scenario. grin

Mad, I have to ask - are you playing this game in Windows 10 or Windows 7?

Okay, thanks Mad. I was just asking because this is yet another game with no video in my Win 10.
