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

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

I just finished MCF: Moths to a Flame. The gameplay was fine; the story? I know what it was about but sure didn't understand the outcome. Oh well. On to the next game. Not sure yet what that will be. smile

I haven't played Moths to a Flame yet. I'm pretty sure the story would confuse me too.

Currently starting level 41 of 60 in Undercover: Blood Bonds.

I started Fiction Fixers: The Curse of Oz tonight and I think my next Match 3 will be Legend of Egypt - Pharaoh's Garden.

I have not played either of those games. Let us know how it goes.

I finished Undercover: Blood Bonds yesterday. This morning I am getting ready to play Magic City Detective: Wrath of the Ocean CE.

Still playing Legend of Egypt - Pharaoh's Garden. It has three levels of play - easy, medium, and hard but it does not tell you about them (that I saw anyway) so I am playing on medium difficulty. It is not timed but timing plays a factor in how many stars you get per level. Three stars gets you a little bonus. I usually would go for all three but am settling for two on some levels so far. I think I have played 20, or maybe 30. I can't remember.

I finished Fiction Fixers: The curse of Oz, which I played in Win 7. It's a decent game with a lot of HO scenes and puzzles. I managed all the puzzles so I'll say they are not too hard. lol I had to get used to the voices though because I wanted them to sound like the movie voices but they don't.

I think I'm going to play Living Legends: The Red Trace next.

Thank you for your description and thoughts on both games, ob. Very helpful. yes

The Red Trace is on my pretty-soon-to-play list also.

I just finished Surface: The Noise She Couldn't Make CE. I bought this game 12 years ago, played the first two chapters, and then discarded it. I think life intervened to the point where I didn't really have time for gaming. Good to finally play through the entire game and also finish the bonus game.

Not sure what is up next. I had a glitch with Wrath of the Ocean and did not feel like starting over, although I plan to restart it as I liked the game. I was about 35 minutes into it when I exited out of an unfinished puzzle that had appeared while zoomed in, and then I quit the game for the night. When I came back, the puzzle was no longer there and otherwise there was nothing else to do. The hint button would make a sound when I pressed it but otherwise was nonfunctional. Note to self: next time, don't exit the zoomed-in puzzle until it is done (or I've used the skip button).

I have some of those Surface games downloaded on my Win 7 if I ever get to them.

I always worry about exiting out of a puzzle or HO scene without finishing it as I have had problems doing that in the past also. I did it last night though in The Red Trace, which I finally started. So far, so good except I didn't know I was supposed to be looking for morphing objects and by the time I figured it out, I missed one. The game actually put me back into the scene it was in, but would not let me pick it up then, as it wanted me to continue to the next scene and that is all it would let me do. Kind of irked me even though I don't usually care about the morphing objects.

Enjoy whatever you decide on next and come back to let us know please! smile

I finished Living Legends: The Red Trace tonight. It was pretty good, pretty easy, nothing new in the puzzle category. I was distracted through most of the game by the voice of the main character, Roland. I think he sounded like Jonathan Harker but the credits did not say who voiced him. Missed one flower collectible (not sure what that kept me from doing) and one morphing object. I know the morphing object was from the very first scene as mentioned in my prior post; not sure about the flower.

Don't know yet what's next.

Oh, I did basically finish Legend of Egypt: Pharoah's Garden also but still playing to try to get all the "upgrades".

I think I will enjoy Red Trace based upon what you have said.

I just finished Criminal Archives: Alphabetic Murders. I enjoyed it overall. It was pretty much like all the other Do Games I have played but since in general I like them, this was by no means a bad thing.

It's great to see you here, Leeana! No need to feel badly; I know you have been through a lot and it's just good to have you here when you are up to posting.

I liked Spirit of Revenge: Elizabeth's Secret. From the same developer, I also recommend Secrets of Great Queens: Old Tower. Really enjoyable, and it takes place close to the same time period as Elizabeth's Secret.

I started House of 1000 Doors: Evil Inside, tonight in Windows 7. Other than it playing only in a window for some reason, I am enjoying it. I skimmed the reviews and didn't see any other mention of the window mode duh ? Oh well, it's keeping me more focused on the game I think.

That's strange about it only running in a window. I don't recall anyone ever mentioning an issue like that with that game. Did you try hitting Alt + Enter?

I started Ms. Holmes: The Milverton Plot yesterday.

I did not try hitting Alt + Enter. I don't know about all those short cut things but will try it later if I remember. I keep a note near me to remember to try Alt F4 to try when I have a frozen screen and can't get out of a game. Without the note, I'd never remember.

I haven't played any of the Ms. Holmes games yet. Enjoy!

Just kick me please! I was getting ready to try Alt Enter but went into Options to look there even though I had looked there last night. Last night I didn't see the box to click for full screen but it was there tonight. lol

Tonight I went back to windowed mode. I guess the game didn't like where I saved before I exited or something. It kept crashing when I tried to move out of the screen I was in. It took me 6 or 7 tries to get the game working again and one thing I did was go back to windowed mode and then was afraid to put it at full screen again. I tried 3 different start icons (the regular one, one I made by going into the game file location, and the one in the game file location that just says "launch" as opposed to the regular .exe file). That's the one that worked. I had also tried "run as administrator" and using the map to try to move out of the screen. I used it one time to just go to the nearest screen but the time it worked was when I used it to go to a screen that showed had an available action. Luckily I had started playing kind of early so I stayed in the game until I finished it. I do still have the bonus chapter to play though. Not sure what the problem was. duh

I am not sure what the problem was either. At least you were able to get through the main game.

And for all we know the game might have run just fine in Windows 10. I have only ever tried the game in Windows 7 and had no problems with it.

It was some kind of access violation error but I'm not sure why, though BF mentions anti virus software could be an issue. I just don't know why it would all of a sudden be a problem. I know I stated this before but, I downloaded a bunch of Big Fish games (and others) prior to support ending for Windows 7 so I would still be using my Windows 7. I had been connecting to the internet now and then but not really to download games. I think since I have finally stopped connecting, my Norton and Malwarebytes are not updating and may be causing problems. I suppose I need to uninstall them now that I'm no longer connecting.

The access violation error is one of the worst and most unhelpful messages ever, being as it does not indicate what the problem might be. Fortunately I have only encountered that message with a few games on Big Fish in the last 17 years.

Interestingly, I remember someone here getting that access violation message years ago playing a Midnight Mysteries game - but when she downloaded the same game from somewhere else, she did not get that message. The only variable was the Big Fish Game Manager. Not that this necessarily pertains to such problems now, but it did stick in my mind. It is possible that some other program running in the background might also be the culprit.

I played the bonus chapter in full screen but put it back to windowed mode before I got out of the game (even though I have no intention of going back in it anyway).

Tonight I started Time Mysteries 3: The Final Enigma in Windows 7. Going well so far!

I haven't played that particular Time Mysteries game, although it is in my Purchase History.

I am playing Phantasmat: The Town of Lost Hope CE.

I just finished a huge stint of the RPG Morrowind (again lol) so am now going back to my half-played BF Game .... Redemption Cemetry : Children's Plight.

I love Morrowind. Even though its sophistication is way behind later Elder Scroll games (which I also very much like) and I will quite often leave off a "game in play" to go adventuring around in it.
Naughty, eh ?? evil

EDIT :

Decided to start it again. I've forgotten too much laugh

I sure understand the siren call of Morrowind, Mad. yes

And starting over with the casual is what I would probably do, too. smile

I started Enchanted Kingdom: Master of Riddles very late last night. When I got to the first puzzle I stopped, so no opinion yet.

I also added two games to my "fill in time / relaxation" games. Now I have 7 different types going, some with multiples. The two I added are Divine Journey: The Life of Jesus (trying to see if I can learn anything but it is just as hard as trying to read the Bible) and Flowers Mosaics. Divine Journey has 25 chapters each with 4 mini games and an Angel to find. If you miss the angel and go back to try to find it you have to replay that particular mini game. There are multiple different mini games including (but not only), jigsaw puzzles, find the difference, slider type, swap type, and nonograms. The nonograms is what prompted me to try Flowers Mosaics which I purchased not too long ago in a bundle and it has three different timed modes and an untimed mode. I tried timed and on the second puzzle I knew that would not work for me! It has 3 stars but if you make even one mistake you don't get that star. I have replayed a few of them already to get the 3 stars. I do like both of the games.

I just finished "Dark City: Amsterdam" and enjoyed it very much. Now I'm going to download the demo of "City Legends: Witness in the Rye". The reviews on Big Fish aren't very good, but I want to make up my own mind based on the demo.

I would definitely be playing in untimed mode with Flowers Mosaics. I don't want to be timed with something like that.

I have been playing Delicious: Emily's Taste of Fame and have 10 levels left.

Otherwise, I am still playing Phantasmat: Town of Lost Hope. Also thinking of replaying a Nancy Drew game, maybe even one of the Dossier games. It has been a long time since I have played those.

Hi, Marian!

I was disappointed when they stopped making the Nancy Drew Dossier games because I really enjoyed the two I played.

Have a nice weekend!

Susan, I was very disappointed about Ship of Shadows getting canned - and from what I have read, it was well along in the production process too.

And you too have a nice weekend. wave

Hi, Marian!

I remember reading that the third game was stopped in the middle of production, and still don't know why. I downloaded "Resorting to Danger" and wasn't sure if it would run on my Windows 10 computer but, so far, so good happydance !

That is good news, Susan. I have seen people with Windows 11 saying they have gotten all the ND games to run, which is reassuring. I really enjoyed Resorting to Danger. smile

Have fun with Resorting to Danger, Susan!

Marian, have you played Flowers Mosaics or any of the other mosaic games? I have done some nonogram puzzles in other games but this is the first full game for me. It is quite hard! I may have to rethink getting all 3 stars as I have had to resort to pen and paper (I'm only on the 10th puzzle) to write down filled spaces because I had to restart it several times. One restart was because I wrote down the wrong thing. The game is supposed to be filler when I'm short on time and something relaxing. It's not turning out that way so far. I may have to check the settings to see if I can just eliminate the stars so they don't distract me. crazy

Ob, I have Fantasy Mosaics #24 and #37, and I am pretty sure that's it. I haven't finished them, though. I did not find them to be all that easy.

Hi, oldbroad!

Thanks! "Resorting to Danger" and "Lights, Camera, Curses" were two of the first games I bought when I joined Big Fish in 2009 and I really enjoyed them. I had forgotten all about them until Marian mentioned that she was thinking of replaying them so I decided to as well.

I think my first nonogram puzzle was in one of the Nancy Drew adventure games., so maybe I'll check out the mosaics series and see how I do with the demo.

Hi, Marian!

Thank you! I remember it took me forever to complete, but it really was fun.

Ooh, I haven't played Shadow at the Water's Edge yet.

I think I should replay the Dossier games one of these days also, especially since I re-purchased them for download not too long ago. I wrote in my notes for Lights, Camera, Curses that I "played 2X but didn't unlock special", whatever that means.

I have a disc of Cruel Games: Red Riding Hood that included a game called World Mosaics 5 on it but I never played it and it will not open on my Windows 7 computer. Besides the game I'm playing, I bought one earlier this week in a bundle called Legendary Mosaics: The Dwarf and the Terrible Cat. I'll probably try more of them as they show up in bundles.

Ob, I haven't unlocked the special on the Dossier games either. I believe you have to end up with a certain performance/number of points in order to unlock it.

Shadow at the Water's Edge has some very challenging puzzles in it.

I thought the Legendary Mosaics game looked cute although I haven't purchased it as yet.

I started Real Crimes: The Unicorn Killer tonight in Windows 7. I'm playing in timed mode and the first scene was taking me time to get focused, and every 15 seconds there would be a pop up telling me what I was supposed to be doing or that I could use a hint or something. It was making me crazy! I did end up having to play the scene twice but then I got settled in. It is mostly all hog but there are some other puzzles such as matching fingerprints.

I have been playing a game from 2009 that I found in my Purchase History, a match 3 game called World Adventure. It is quite different from other match 3 games I have played and also involves some strategic elements. It started out relatively easy but has gotten progressively more difficult. I doubt that I will be playing it straight on through as I am presently stuck on a level so will probably find something else to play today and return to this one from time to time.

I have Unicorn Killer but I don't think I have ever played the whole thing.

Well, I am still failing that match 3 level so I started playing James Patterson Women's Murder Club: A Darker Shade of Grey. I am finding it pretty entertaining. I have had this game for years but have never played it before.

I have played all of the Women's Murder Club games (and read all ? or most of the books). I only have the games on disc though. I liked them.

I finished The Unicorn Killer last night. It is only a 2 hour game smile. Not sure just yet what is up next.

Now I know what game to choose when I am in the mood for a short game. smile

And this particular Women's Murder Club I am playing was designed by Jane Jensen - I had forgotten that.

I started Sinister City tonight. I only played for a half hour so far. I am not sure about it. It's different which is good but there are only two modes. Easy mode points everything out to you and advanced mode makes you click on everything. I don't like either of those options. You can change it during gameplay so that is good I guess. If I get tired of clicking around I can change to being led around, and vice versa.

I have Sinister City but haven't played it yet. I will be interested to hear more about it as you play the game. I have enjoyed some of the developer's other casuals.

Marian, I am not finding this game fun at all. I think it could have made a good game but (for me) it is not. I can barely stand to play it for a half hour at a time and cannot wait to finish it. Some of the puzzles are very easy and then some are just annoying. I skipped three of them already.

I have a couple of their other games but I think this is the first one I am playing. Which ones have you played?

I have played their Frankenstein: Master of Death and Dracula's Legacy. They weren't great, but as far as I can remember they were pretty good.

I also played Cursed. 8dognight writes about the game in our Casual Games Reviews and Recommendations thread. I liked it. Finally, in the last year I played Millennium Secrets: Emerald Curse. I enjoyed that one too. Both of these are from JetDogs Studios as well.

I added one more to my post above.

And I have a few more of theirs still to be played - their HOPAs/adventure lite games, that is.

The two Millennium Secrets games, Varenje, and the new game The Harmony Chronicles, are all on my "possibly to buy" list but I may have to keep them there until I try another one by Jetdogs. Millennium Secrets does not show up under their name if you search by developer but I do see one reviewer shows them as the developer. I recently purchased The Red Book and they are also the developer of the Legendary Mosaics game I purchased two weeks ago..

I just finished League of Light: Wicked Harvest CE. I had played the main game before but not the bonus game. The bonus game was quite good and did not feel like it had been thrown together as an afterthought. I really enjoyed the entire game.

I finished Sinister City the other night, about 3 hours of play when you skip 3 or 4 puzzles. lol I also finished Divine Journey: The Life of Jesus. The puzzles were not bad but not any that I really wanted to have to repeat. Some were pretty hard!

I think I will play Legendary Tales: Stories next. I know I enjoyed the first two games in the series.

I have not played any of the League of Light games yet.

The new Legendary Tales I don't have yet. Hopefully it is as good as the first two. smile

I still intend to play Sinister City at some point.

If you ever do get around to Sinister City, please post your opinion. You may like it. I really do think it could have been a good game, but something about it just did not work for me! I played it in Windows 7 and there was one area where nothing was happening (though it should have been). I closed the game and went back in and it was fine. May have been something I did to aggravate it.?

I'm surprised you don't have the Legendary Tales game yet.

I have another Jetdogs Studios game in my Purchase History that I haven't played called Alchemy Mysteries: Prague Legends as well as another one called Annabel. Also have the other Millennium Secrets game.

Today I finished Queen's Tales: Sins of the Past CE - started it a couple of days ago and spent a lot of time playing it. I liked it a lot.

I feel like I had that Alchemy Mysteries game either on my list to buy or already bought but I don't see it on either. I do have Annabel on my list to buy.

I have not played either of the Queen's Tales games but I do have them. Have you played the other one, The Beast and the Nightingale?

I'm a couple hours into Legendary Tales: Stories. It' going well so far.

My son got Mystery Case Files: Dire Grove CE up and running yesterday on our Windows 11 computer using Virtual Box running Windows 7. We are going to put it on our Windows 10 computer too. Next up is he is going to try one of the emulators for Flash Player so that I can play games on Windows 10/11 that use it. He definitely has his priorities straight. smile

Otherwise, I am now playing Immortal Love: Black Lotus CE. The main game was quite long. In the bonus game now.

You're lucky to have somebody to do that stuff for you (or with you), Marian! I am jealous! I once put a Virtual Box (or something) on my XP to run Win 98. I was very proud of myself but I am too afraid to attempt that kind of stuff anymore.

All Immortal Love games in my library waiting.

I finished the first chapter (story) in Legendary Tales. Will start the second one later.

Another game I have installed and waiting (with a note next to it that Marian liked it a lot). Have fun, Mad! (And, I still haven't gone back to my game.)

Edit: Well, now I've started the 2nd story as I accidentally clicked that icon instead of a different one. smile

Hi! I haven't posted for a while . I have been busy with home renovations but they are about done now thank goodness. In the meantime I have been playing mostly straight HOG's . I am playing Around The World; Amazing Countries series. I really like these games. Simple and eye pleasing. smile wave

I am happy to hear you are enjoying them, Marlene! Simple and eye pleasing are sometimes what I am looking for, too.

I am now playing The Andersen Accounts: The Price of a Life CE. It is a bit different from the usual and interesting so far.

Mad, I do hope you like The Emerald Maiden. smile

And I forgot to say how much I enjoyed re-playing the Redemption Cemetery Game.
[Plus as I have several more from that series, there's plenty more fun to come !! grin]

Got Diverted !! redface

I installed two games, last time, the second one being Vampire Legends : The Untold Story of Elizabeth Bathory (CE) - which I thought I'd already played at some time but soon realised I hadn't.
[With the intent of playing the two games in alternate sessions.]

But when I started playing the vampire one, I got carried away and have been playing only IT ever since because I really like it !! shame

[Just got no will power at all lol]

That game has been in my library going on 10 years now but I have not played it either.

I am still playing Legendary Tales. There are way too many collectibles in the game but they do at least have a grabbing hand to make it easier to find them.

Marlene, I have lots of games purchased that long ago and yet to be played. In the past year I have finally gotten around to some games that were purchased at least thirteen years ago...and this even when I have cut way back on game purchases as compared to how I used to be. rolleyes

I finally finished Legendary Tales: Stories. One of the character voices sounds like the guy from Sanitarium, making me think about another replay of that. The game is very long. I guess the stories somewhat connect but I can't follow stories well enough to say how. There are a million collectibles but a grabbing hand helps you find them and, the best part, you are able to go back afterwards to find what you may have missed. In one of the HO scenes there was a code that was supposed to be used but I couldn't figure it out at all so I tried to look at the guide. Of course it was not in there because it was part of the HO scene, so I had to skip that. I also skipped two of the puzzles; one I was pretty sure I'd never get and I did try it again in the "extras" but ended up using the guide to see it. The other one was not in the extras and I can't remember now what it was or why I had to skip it. I liked the game well enough but I am not nearly as big a fan of 5BN games as the rest of you are, so I can't say I loved it.

I'm not sure what's up next.

Thank you for that description of Legendary Tales: Stories. I did hear that the game is very long. Skipping only two puzzles is darn good, in my opinion.

Along with Nancy Drew, for my casual I have been playing Lost Lands: Ice Spell and I am enjoying it very much.
