In our constant quest for freshness and originality we are often quick to dismiss games that simply toe the line. But sometimes games that don’t innovate or otherwise alter a proven formula can prove enormously entertaining. Such is the case with Fishdom 2, Playrix’s sequel to its popular aquatic-themed match-three game Fishdom. There is very little about the experience that can properly … (Playrix Entertainment) Thu, 27 May 2010 00:00:00 GMT Royal Envoy™ Collector's Edition Review April 8, 2010 by Chad Sapieha It turns out the best way to make sure you're looked after in times of need is to supply your country's leader with swanky shoes. The king in Playrix's new building simulator Royal Envoy shows no interest in helping Islandshire's storm ravaged residents until he learns that they're the ones who keep him in purple slippers. Once this fact is revealed he wastes no time sending a delegate-you-to oversee the province's rebuilding and ensure production of his fancy foot… (Playrix Entertainment) Thu, 08 Apr 2010 00:00:00 GMT Fishdom Spooky Splash™ Review October 13, 2009 by Lisa Haasbroek The first Fishdom game made a splash with challenging match-3 gameplay and fishtank decorating, while the sequel, Fishdom H2O, switched over to hidden object gameplay. Both games were well-received by players, but match-3 fans will be happy to know that Fishdom: Spooky Splash has gone back to its match-3 roots. Like the first Fishdom, Spooky Splash has you swapping tiles and earning cash to decorate Halloween-themed fish tanks. You might be wondering what makes… (Playrix Entertainment) Tue, 13 Oct 2009 00:00:00 GMT Call of Atlantis™ Review November 17, 2008 by Scott Steinberg Call of Atlantis – third in the series of popular match-three puzzlers – deftly avoids the disturbing tendency to churn out identikit sequels to score a quick buck, delivering instead a spectacular return to form for the franchise. As an added bonus, it’s also proof positive that a little time and effort is all it takes to reinvent nearly any adventure in the eyes of even the most jaded critics, much to our delight and surprise. Per the introduction, to… (Playrix Entertainment) Mon, 17 Nov 2008 00:00:00 GMT Gardenscapes™ Review October 05, 2009 by Chad Sapieha I love it when I feel game makers working hard to engage my interest. That's exactly the way I felt while playing Gardenscapes, a new hidden object game from Playrix Entertainment that sports top notch presentation, great art, and game design that kept me perpetually wanting to play just one more puzzle. The game begins with the player inheriting a mansion behind which sits a once resplendent garden. With the help of the butler, Austin, your job is to restore the… (Playrix Entertainment) Mon, 05 Oct 2009 00:00:00 GMT New game released - Nearwood Collector's Edition Can a young woman single-handedly change the fate of a magical kingdom?
