Name: Phantasmat: Reign of Shadows Collector's Edition
Release Date: 7 October 2016
Developer: Eipix Entertainment

The first Phantasmat was not just a great game, it was a revelation - and thus far, no other games in the series have yet to match it. Sequel after sequel, we have been waiting for Phantasmat to return to its peak again - and dare we say it, Reign of Shadows might just be the one. The thing that sets Reign of Shadows apart from its predecessors is that it is genuinely creepy, There are no fancy gimmicks or over-the-top effects, just good-old horror. We also love the characters in this game, their eccentricity reminds us if the original trio from the first game.

Being an Eipix game, Phantasmat: Reign of Shadows unsurprisingly has a top-notch production. The visuals are mind-blowing, with just delicate details, great lighting and terrific artwork. We also found the background music and sound effects to be extremely well-done, not to mention that the voice-overs were also incredible.

The gameplay in Reign of Shadows is nothing extraordinary, but it is indeed very captivating. While the tasks to be completed can be quite mundane the development of the game is fairly predictable, the game excels when it comes to the hidden object scenes and the puzzles. There is a neat variety of hidden object formats offered, all of which are creative and fun. What surprised us the most was how much we enjoyed the puzzles. Unlike typical Eipix's puzzles, the ones in Reign of Shadows are innovative and very challenging - big congrats to the developer on this one!

We were thrilled all the way through four hours of the main game, and were equally impressed by the one-hour bonus chapter. We highly recommend the Collector's Edition as it comes with a handful of extras; a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, videos, replayable Match 3 games, replayable hidden objects, replayable puzzles, morphing objects, achievements, collectibles.

Phantasmat: Reign of Shadows is the strongest entry since the original. Phantasmat fans and HOPA players alike will rejoice at the chilling storyline, the imaginative puzzles and the stunning visuals this game has to offer.

Name: Fear for Sale: The Dusk Wanderer Collector's Edition
Release Date: 2 October 2016
Developer: Elefun Games

The Fear For Sale series has its ups and downs; some installments were fantastic, while some were sub-par - The Dusk Wanderer leans more toward the first category. The storyline in this latest sequel is nothing to be hyped up for, just another recycled plot about missing people with some paranormal factors thrown in. Nonetheless, The Dusk Wanderer delivers it in a fairly interesting and suspenseful way.

The visuals are not the best we have seen from Elefun Games. Although we did find many of the locations stunning with great attention to detail, a few locations looked a bit pale. Still, all the animations in The Dusk Wanderer are extremely well-done, got to give credit where it's due. As for the audio, the background music compliments the moody theme of the game very well and the voice-overs are professionally done.

Fans of the series will definitely enjoy this latest addition, as it follows the style perfected by its predecessors. Fear for Sale: The Dusk Wanderer is not a revolutionary game, but it is a very entertaining one. Each location featured a handful of tasks to be completed, some solutions can also be quite unconventional. The hidden object scenes are in the same vein as those in the recent games by Elefun; satisfyingly creative. With respect to the puzzles, they are fun and doable, but nothing groundbreaking.

Fear for Sale: The Dusk Wanderer gave us a good 4-hour playtime to enjoy, plus another hour for the equally-solid bonus chapter. Other extras included in the Collector's Edition are wallpapers, concept art, a strategy guide, achievements, collectibles, morphing objects and screensavers.

To sum it up, Fear For Sale: The Dusk Wanderer does not take any big risks, but still manages to entertain. If you love a good paranormal mystery, then you're in for a good time!

Name: Mystery Tales: Eye of the Fire Collector's Edition
Release Date: 30 September 2016
Developer: Domini Games

We were never big fans of the Mystery Tales series, we didn't feel like any of the games is special and deserves such praises. Regardless, we were impressed by the storyline of Eye of the Fire. While it is certainly not the most original idea, it still manages to bring enough excitement to keep us moving forward. The constant face-off with the main villain also helps make the game more intriguing.

Despite the solid storyline, other aspects of the game are quite sub-par. There is nothing seriously wrong with the production, but it could have been much better. The artwork is amazing, but the fuzzy graphics and the odd combination of colors are certainly turn-offs. Additionally, we didn't find the soundtracks to be very memorable either, mundane at best.

Mystery Tales: Eye of the Fire is a very well-crafted game, just not an especially exciting one. Everything in Eye of the Fire has been done before a thousand times; from the predictable gameplay to the annoying, gimmicky glasses that allows you to see the past. We do appreciate the option to switch between Easy and Hard modes in most of the puzzles. However, there is no denying that the puzzles are extremely formulaic.

It took us around 3 and a half hours to complete Mystery Tales: Eye of the Fire. The bonus chapter opened a new set of locations for us to explore and took us another 50 minutes. The Collector's Edition of the game comes with wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, achievements, a strategy guide, collectibles, morphing objects, replayable hidden objects and a witch book.

Mystery Tales: Eye of the Fire is a passable game with an enjoyable storyline and not much else.

Name: Stranded Dreamscapes: The Doppelganger Collector's Edition
Release Date: 28 September 2016
Developer: Friendly Cactus Games

The whole "stuck in a parallel world" concept has been done to death by hundreds of other HOPA titles out there. Still, we were captivated by the doppelganger theme and hints of tragedy Stranded Dreamscapes 2 promises. Unfortunately, The Doppelganger turns out to be just another cliché game with a weak storyline. The game progresses at a snail speed with very little backstory to hold our interests.

Stranded Dreamscapes: The Doppelganger does not shine in the production department either. The visuals in the game are certainly not bad, but they do not look very modern. The artwork is juvenile, the graphics are grainy and the colors are washed-out. Further, the cutscenes are very blurry, as if they were being developed in the early 2010s. Similarly, the soundtracks are just as disappointing - they are mostly very bland and often end abruptly just to start on the next track.

Fans of the genre who expect some challenges from Stranded Dreamscapes: The Doppelganger will most likely be let down. The gameplay is extremely formulaic, straightforward and easy. The hidden object scenes and the puzzles are very generic and can be solved without much brainpower, although there is no denying that they are pretty well-engineered.

Forcing ourselves to complete Stranded Dreamscapes: The Doppelganger was not easy, but we did it in just under four hours. The bonus section is also fairly basic; a bonus chapter, a strategy guide, wallpapers, concept art, soundtracks, achievements and collectibles.

Stranded Dreamscapes: The Doppelganger could have been a hit if it was released a few years ago. As for now, the game clearly loses when stacked up against its better-produced peers.

Top 4 Casual Games That You Can Play On Your PC

Wednesday, October 19, 2016 /

Casual games are the best way to have fun while playing games on your PC. They don’t need any strategising and are a great way to relax after a hectic day. They’re very similar to deposit 5 pound bingo sites that need just a bit of luck to enjoy a good game.

We’ve compiled a list of casual games that are stimulating enough, but will not stress you out completely. So, sit back, relax and enjoy these casual games at any time.

Burger Shop 2

The first one on the list is Burger Shop 2. This is the sequel of Burger Shop. It’s a fast-paced time management game with additional levels and awesome new twists like extra characters, trophies as well as dishes.

If you’ve played Burger Shop, you’re probably aware that the BurgerTron 2000 machine is what kept you going and help you built your restaurant empire. But at the beginning of Burger Shop 2, your restaurant empire is in shambles and it’s your job to build it up from scratch.

Burger Shop 2 is on the frantic side and if you don’t mind hustling your time management skills, then this game is a must-download.

Jewel Quest

Even before Candy Crush Saga took the world by storm, there was a PC game called Jewel Quest. It was first launched in 2004. Jewel Quest is a match-3 classic game that has spawned many sequels. The object of this game is to match three adjoining jewels that turn sand into gold.

It starts out easy, but as you clear the levels and progress in the game, it gets trickier and difficult to complete the level in the given time and the number of attempts. Jewel Quest is a decent and simple game until you start playing the difficult levels. If you like such challenging games, then you’ll find it quite relaxing to try and clear the levels.


It starts out easy, but as you clear the levels and progress in the game, it gets trickier and difficult to complete the level in the given time and the number of attempts. Jewel Quest is a decent and simple game until you start playing the difficult levels. If you like such challenging games, then you’ll find it quite relaxing to try and clear the levels.

As always, the first few levels are easy. Once you start progressing in levels, you’ll see that it starts getting tougher. The number of balls and their colours increase. As a result, there will be less space between the pyramid and the stage entrance. Other likely difficulty points in this game are more winding paths and obstructions like tunnels.


A pun on the words, hectic and hexagons, Hexic is another tile-matching puzzle game that was released in 2003. The main aim of this game is to rotate the hexagonal tiles in such a way that they should create certain patterns – flowers or clusters. You need to match a minimum of three colours. Once matched, it clears the playfield for more hexagonal pieces.

As new pieces appear at the top of the playfield, you need to strategise and match the pieces as fast as possible. If you’re able to clear more than three pieces at a time, you’ll be rewarded with bonuses. Some pieces contain bonus stars that have the potential to grant you extra points. They can also clear bigger groups depending on how you strategically use to clear them.

These are only a few casual games. If you’ve played other games that has not made it to this list, we’d like to hear about them. Leave them in the comments below.
