Parking Dash Review

Sep 17, 2008

OK, so we won’t take any credit for it, but after the last couple of uninspiring “Dash” offshoots – such as Fashion Dash, Doggie Dash and Dairy Dash – we at Gamezebo begged PlayFirst to come up with something fresh, fun and worthy of the Diner Dash legacy. And they did.

Parking Dash is a time management game that’s very easy to get into but extremely hard to put down.

Turbo Fiesta Review

Sep 16, 2008

Like its predecessors, time management title Turbo Fiesta is notable for two reasons: a catchy, restaurant-themed presentation, and hyper-kinetic pacing. Offering more of the same food-slinging action fans know and love, it's more of a cosmetic upgrade and change of scenery than a major step forward for the franchise. Still, if the average casual outing feels way too relaxed and low-key for your tastes, don't be ashamed to download ASAP.

Jewel Quest Mysteries: Curse of the Emerald Tear Review

Sep 15, 2008

Hidden object games meet Match-three puzzles in Jewel Quest Mysteries: Curse of the Emerald Tear, a new hybrid from iWin that fuses a seek-and-find adventure related to Egyptian lore with classic Jewel Quest gem-swapping.

While not the first to combine the two genres, it works in Jewel Quest Mysteries – but it’s far from a perfect experience.

Without revealing much of the story, Rupert and Emma are plunged into a mystery surrounding ancient Egypt and must visit the area, solve puzzles and unlock more of an intriguing tale told via journal entries and sketches.
