The Great Tree certainly deserves the 2008 Innovative Game of the Year reward! Once again the creators at Reflexive have given us phenomenal graphics & a unique game playing experience, great story line & beautiful music & sound. Saving the Great Tree from extinction, you take on the persona as the only faery left to battle the invasion of the insects destroying the tree while dealing with treachery from a certain elder faery. Wonderful power ups to gain your magic, agility, strength & health while harvesting pollen to release the much needed swee who nurture the Great Tree. You make the choice of what ability you need the most first and you also make the choice of which faery wings to wear to destroy the invading insects as the game becomes more challenging. Explore this magical adventure...A FANTASTIC game for the entire family!
A nice, but fairly simple game where you match upturned cards, such as threes and queens, to clear the board. A few extras are thrown in along the way, like locked cards and keys, and magnetized cards, and the layouts change nicely with each level. But it's still matching pairs, which just isn't that challenging. However, it's a great way to ease out of the day's stresses. Also an amusing way to teach kids their numbers and the face cards in a deck. Graphics are just okay, including in the hidden object games. There's no wait time for the hints to reload, so you can just keep clicking the hints to clear the hidden objects, and proceed back to the card play if you wish. Probably a better game in short periods of play, as I thought it kind of dragged. But sometimes a mindless kind of game is just what you want.
