Happy Friday, everyone! Mac Games and More has once again picked out a collection of casual games you might not have heard of, to play into the weekend when you’re not holiday shopping. Games include an addictive puzzle releasing fairies from jars, word games with word eating worms, a cute knight and more.
|Avenue Flo – In Avenue Flo, Flo is back but the game is surprisingly NOT a time management game. This will be a relief if you hate those kinds of games. While the game is described as a sim, it’s rather, more like a set of various games and puzzles including some hidden objects, logic and a lot of adventure gaming. In the story, Quinn (of Wedding Dash fame) runs into too many problems right before the wedding of one of her clients, and it’s up to you (as Flo) to help her out. Explore three neighbourhoods of Diner Town (Avenue Flo, Bistro Bay and Yum Yum Square), meet people along the way for clues about what you’re suppose to do next, and pick up items to add to your inventory that you can use to solve puzzles. If you’re a fan of Flo games, you will probably connect with everyone because you’ll know all the characters from previous games. But if you don’t normally like these games, you might unexpectedly like it since it isn’t like all the other games. It’s also the first time, ever, where you’ll get to hear the voices of Flo and her BFF, Quinn. Download it|
|Fairies -Not only do fairies exist, they need some assistance from you. The fairies, of all colors of the rainbow, have been captured by evil forces and have been placed in individual jars, which is where you come in. You then are set on an important mission to find them and set these beautiful, flittering pixies to liberate them from their glass prisons. Slide and match your way through 100 increasingly difficult and eye-catchingly gorgeous levels in your quest to release the fairies and set them free. Beware of locked jars! Download it|
|Bookworm Deluxe – This is one of my favorite word games for Mac. In Bookworm Deluxe, Lex the Bookworm is hungry. Not only that, you have to feed him and he doesn’t eat hamburgers or pizza, unless you spell them for him because he feeds on words. To give him the nourishment he needs, link letters together on the board to spell out words. He’ll reward you by giving you big points, but if you feed him too many short words and he’ll send down burning letters that could set the entire library on fire. Download it|
|Legend of Aladdin – Follow the legendary Middle-Eastern folk tale of Aladdin as he encounters his tumultuous fate and fortune through 120 levels of match 3 gem games. Fill up the magic potion bottle to activate the slide feature power-up, or collect coins to trade with the shrewd shopkeeper for power-ups to take with you as you go. Download it|
|Cute Knight – Take on the role of an orphaned girl, who just turns 18 years old. Her main goal is to find out what she’s meant to do in life. What will become of her? This will depend on how you play the game. Will she become a beggar, princess or cute knight? It’s up to you to guide her so she will find her true calling. In this sim/strategy game for Mac, train her in jobs and classes to develop her skills, make friends and find a sweetheart. She’ll need to use skills to conquer monsters in the dungeon, too! 50 storybook endings with huge replay value. Download it|
