Oh-memories..Lipticoe 1987-88 . Somewhat like "Load Runner" only you had to keep away from the bad guys who were always after you. It played on my IBM PC JR. Wish I could find it again --too many hours to count.

Azada! January 2008. razz

It started because I was in an adventure game rut and just wanted straight puzzles. I was playing Safecracker and I saw someone on another board suggest Azada for someone looking for just puzzles. Did a google search, found BFG, bought it and signed up for a 12 month membership.

I'm addicted to casual games now as much as I have always been with adventure games. In the past 2 months I have purchased 20+ games from BFG. Help! lol

My very first would be either Bulldozer or Chip's Challenge. I enjoyed both of them until they reached the impossible stage. But that was back in 1998.

More recently I rediscovered casual games with Atlantis Quest and 7 Wonders of the World and the rest is history.

So many games, so little time.

Was 7th guest considered a casual game? I loved that game and wish it would work again on my computer. That was the very first game I ever bought on cd...I can remember buying them on floppies...guess I'm showing my age...lol

Wow... that's a hard question. My first Big Fish game I think was Magic Match. I think I downloaded my first casual game before Big Fish and I think it was a quiz program game like Jeopardy or something.

The first game bought in the store for my computer was one called Earth, Fire and Water or something. Loved it.


Prices are going up everywhere except in our incomes.

My first casual game was Rich Diamond, which incidentally is what got me into adventure games proper.

Never resist a generous impulse.
