Undiscovered World - The Incan Sun Review

Feb 21, 2009

Here comes another hidden object game, but at least the Incan theme sounds like a nice change from the all too oft used Egyptian and Greek themes. Undiscovered World: The Incan Sun sends you into the South American jungles near the water where the Incans lived, with a map resembling scenes from photos of the Incan ruins.

Emerald City Confidential Review

Feb 20, 2009

"Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Oz anymore." At least, not in the Oz you might remember from reading Frank L. Baum's original fantasy novel The Wizard of Oz, or from watching the classic 1939 musical starring Judy Garland as Dorothy. No, the Oz in Emerald City Confidential is a much grittier place, inspired by the film noir tradition of hard-nosed detectives, mob bosses and femmes fatales.
