Azada Game Review

Azada Game Review and Download from our partner GameMile




Azada - Great Adventure Game With Tons Of Puzzles

Big Fish Games Studio is working really hard to supply with oh-so-cool games once in a while. Ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you to the next puzzle epic by Big Fish Games Studios - Azada, a super cool puzle adventure game with tons of puzzles to solve.

Solve all the puzzles of the game to help Titus.

You find yourself in a mysterious place with no idea how you got there.



First, you find a letter on the floor, saying that your help is desperately needed to release Titus from his spell finding all the pages of the secret book.

From this moment on your adventure begins.
The series of numerous puzzles of all kinds are waiting for you.
Each level is represented by a number of different puzzles.

In each level there are sheets of paper with puzzles for you to choose. The puzzles are quite different. To solve The Colors puzzle, for example, you need to remember the sequence of color blocks that has been pressed and to repeat the sequence on your own.

The Pyramid puzzle is represented by mixed parts of a picture of an ancient pyramid that you are to collect in a way it is done in "Fifteen" game. Your task is to put them together by swapping only the adjacent parts.

Hidden-object puzzles of this game take more than finding the items.


Special attention must be paid to the hidden-object puzzles because they take more than a quick eye. In this type of puzzles you are given a list of objects to find but they are not just somewhere on a picture. A match, for example, can be in a bucket, so in order to find it you need to click on the bucket and see what's inside. Moreover, having found all the items you need to understand how you can use them to unlock another page. So there's much more than a seek-and-find thing.

Try to solve the puzzles before the time runs out. The hint button help will cost you 5 minutes.
The time in every puzzle is limited, so you'd better watch the clock so that you wouldn't have to solve all the puzzles of the level again.



You get a roll for every solved puzzle, and the number of puzzles depends on the required number of rolls.

There are hints in some puzzles that will only tell you what to do next. But that will cost you 5 minutes of your time.

The graphics and sounds of the game are really impressive and contribute to the mysterious game story. I'm sure everyone will enjoy solving the mysteries of Azada and helping Titus.

Believe In Sandy Game Review and Download

Believe In Sandy Game Review and Download from our partner GameMile



Believe in Sandy: Holiday Story - All About Toys
Believe in Sandy: Holiday Story is a sequel of the popular Believe in Santa.
In this game from Big Fish Games you are to help Sandy to make money by selling in her shop and pay back the loan.

A Fairy gave Sandy two elves to help her run her business better and be able to get enough money to pay the loan back.


According to the story of the game, Sandy took a loan to set up her own shop.
She is all about making people happy, so she makes and sells toys.
But one day a Fairy came to her and said that she would give her two elves to help her for her hard work and kind heart.

That's the touching moment of the game...




So now you are to make customized presents for your customers and get the required amount of money.

The game has three modes: Story, Memory, and Endless.


You are to play the game in one of three modes: Story, Memory, and Endless.
The Story Mode gets you in the story of paying back the debt.
You just go through the levels earning enough money.

The Memory Mode is pretty much the same, but, unlike the Story Mode, the toys ordered by customers are shown only for a limited period of time.

And the Endless Mode is all about serving your customers that keep coming.
Before each level you are to make a customized toy that will cost quite a lot.


You are offered to make a customized toy for sale before each level.
You start with only two toys. These are a doll and teddy bear.
But the number of toys grows as you progress through the levels.

You are to get them dressed. For example, you choose the color of dress, hair, shoes, flowers, hat, and necklace.

You are tempted to be creative and make the doll look cute or ridiculous.

But the thing is that the way you get the doll dressed determines the amount of money you'll get for her when sold.

So I was mostly trying to find the combination that would give me the best price.
More speed challenge would be a great improvement.

If I were to describe the game play with one word, I would choose - slow.

Despite the number of tasks you are to accomplish serving customers - to take a toy from the conveyor, to get it to the right elf, to choose the required paint, to take the toy to the customer, and maybe get a box if asked for.

But despite all that the game isn't the one to put you on your toes.

The graphics of the game are very bright, very attractive, and very appropriate for the toys-themed game.

Risk Strategy Game Review



Wow! It’s been 5o years since this classic startegic boardgame was invented by French movie director Albert Lamorisse. It was introduced to the world in 1957 as La ConquĂȘte du Moned ( The conquest of the world).

The name changed to Risk Continental Game when it was brought to the United States in 1959, and since 1996, it has just gone by the name Risk.

Players of the new online version will be impressed with how the Big Fish Games release has captured all the excitement and nostalgia of this classic boardgame.

The online version features outstanding graphics that reflect the Napoleonic-era political map of the world, which really brings the boardgame to life. Capitvating music and sound effects keep you engaged throughout the game.

We downloaded the game from our personal GameSpace that Big Fish Games offers all players for free. We have Windows Vista, and were ready to play within just a few minutes. The game also works with Windows ME/2000/ and XP, requires a CPU of 600 MHz or faster, and at least 128 MB of Ram.



The menu features are easy to navigate and give easy-to-follow instructions.

The object of Risk is quite simple: control all 42 territories of the world. You want to begin the game by claiming territories.



A few highlights:

  • Territory cards earn you more reinforcements as you continue your quest to conquer the world.
  • You need 3 generals to play - one must be human (up to 6 players may compete}. You can also play against the computer generals, each with his own persona and style.
  • The order in which you select your generals is the order they will appear in the game.
  • Players can choose random deal or let the computer assign territories.
  • Once all territories are claimed, players can then reinforce territories with any remaining units.
  • Once all territories are claimed, players can then reinforce territories with any remaining units.

Here are a few tips to help you out:

  • Australia and South America are two good continents to try and capture early. South America has only two points of attack, and Australia has one. The fewer points of attack, the easier the territories are to hold.
  • Always attack with a large group of armies rather than small or medium. Don’t spread yourself too thin. One-army countries are easily captured.

Lots of games have come and gone since Risk was released 50 years ago. That alone speaks volumes about this all-time favorite. With its outstanding graphics, music, and sound effects, Risk will keep players engaged for hours and maybe days developing new strategies and skills in this classic strategy game.

Miss Management Game Review

Miss Management Game Review From our partner GameMile




Miss Management is a funny mix of time-management and simulation from Gamelab. In terms of genre, this game looks very much like Nanny Mania.

In the game, you are to handle the decision-making for and crazy peculiarities of your workers - while keeping everybody happy.

Get the work done, and keep the workers happy - these are the principal tasks of Miss Management.


In this game, you are Denise - a cute young lady at her first job. You are hired as an office manager. So your task is to accomplish the daily goals that include not only work that must be done, but also workers' needs that must be met.

You are to do all your duties within a certain period of time. The goals for each day are shown to you before each day, and you can take a look at them anytime during the game.

Each worker has things that irritate him/her, and each also has things that help him/her to relax.

Each day, you meet a new person in your office. Each worker has his/her personal peculiarities that you should know. There are things that he/she likes and doesn't like. For example, a girl Tara likes the whiteboard markers and doesn't like to communicate with people. It's important to know, because when Mahavir, a guy in the office, tries to chat with her, Tara gets stressed. Another example is that almost everyone gets irritated when Mahavir tumbles down on the coach to overcome his stress.

You have to be careful to not let your workers get stressed out accomplishing their daily goals.

The goals for the day may get one of the workers stressed, yet help others to relax at the same time. You can see how stressed a worker is with the help of the stress thermometer near each one of them. If fulfilling one of the goals gets somebody stressed, be careful not to lose that worker.

For some of the goals, you have a set time that must be spent on an activity, so taking a break can restore the stressed worker.

You are going to be on better terms with the workers of the office by getting to know them and talking to them in the beginning of every business day.

What makes Miss Management similar to the other games of this type is that you spend as much time on chatting with your workers as on the game itself. Before each day, you are to meet a new worker and discuss any arising problems with him/her.



Of course, it is not you personally who talks to them, but it feels like you are a part of the comics.

At first, it may seem like too much, but later you get so used to everyone in the office, like Mahavir - who thinks that he's the most handsome guy in the world, or Timothy - who's depressed all the time, and the game (oops, I mean your work) becomes really fun.

You should not focus on money-making. Remember that the psychological balance of your workers as well as goal-completion are your primary priorities.

Though you get some money for all the tasks accomplished by your workers, money is not the main factor of your success in this game. The game is not about getting money, it's about accomplishing your daily goals - which could mean letting Pearl smoke for 50 seconds or bringing Tara 2 whiteboard markers.

The money you get can be spent on the things in the shop for your workers, like a cup of coffee, a doughnut, a whiteboard marker, etc. Miss Management
is both an entertaining and challenging time-management game.

The graphics are very cute and attractive. It's clear that it took a great deal of developers' time and energy to release another quality game. The game is well worth it!
