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
