Aliens invade your fish tank!
Written by: nick

Pros: 
Unique theme, fun gameplay, good graphics, good structure.

Cons: 
No real story to back up all the wierdness. Can get repetitive.

Comments: 
This is a very entertaining dexterity-based game with an off-the-wall theme. Basically, you have to increase the population of your fish tank. Each fish drops money for you to buy stuff with, and you basically have to get enough money to buy the three parts of the egg that gets you to the next level. The catch is that evil aliens will invade your fish tank and **** your fish, so you have to grab y...

Golden!
Written by: nick

Pros: 
Easy to understand, fun to play, new special tiles keep it fresh.

Cons: 
Not too challenging. Connecting more than two Talismans is annoying.

Comments: 
This is an excellent and somewhat addictive game. Playing it is easy to understand, and interesting, even in later levels; simply rotate the peices so that they form a line between two Talismans of the same type. More points and better rewards are earned by making longer chains and doing it more quickly.

Fantastic.
Written by: nick

Pros: 
Story, Graphics, Highscores system, Fun, Lots of levels.

Cons: 
Still Mahjong, music can get tedious after awhile.

Comments: 
I really dug the treasure hunter storyline and unique gameplay. Matching up the gems was fun too, for a bit of extra challenge, even though it seemed impossible to do on some stages. A fantastic game that I would reccommend to anyone.

Good Bejewelled style game.
Written by: nick

Pros: 
Gameplay, Sound, overall presentation.

Cons: 
No big problems. Music can get anoying, later levels are hard.

Comments: 
I normally don't like Bejewelled-type match-3 games like this one, but this was fun. The frequent special blocks make the gameplay far less random, and the changing layouts increase the challenge and variety. Good theme, music, and sound effects too.

Excellent game!
Written by: nick

Pros: 
Lots of content, simple buy low/sell high economics. Fun theme, funny writing, good graphics.

Cons: 
Graphics are better in some scenes than others. A bit complicated.

Comments: 
The Tradewinds games have always been good time-wasters. Compared to the others in the series, this is just more of everything. More locations, characters, ship types, and overall better graphics. This isn't the kind of game you'll really enjoy if you only want to play for a few minutes at a time, but if you like to explore a game and find out everything you can about it, this is the gam...

Fun AND educational!
Written by: nick

Pros: 
Great graphics, fun gameplay, interesting fish facts between levels.

Cons: 
Can get a little repetitive. Not the longest game out there...

Comments: 
This game is an excellent follow-up to the original, and a big improvement in many ways. There are more powerups which vary gameplay, special levels where you have to jump out of the water to cath things above the surface, and substantially improved graphics. They seem to have gotten rid of the pre-rendered 3D fish from the original and replaced them with nice-looking 2D sprites. Basically, you us...

Yawn...
Written by: nick

Pros: 
Easy to learn, easy to play.

Cons: 
Repetitive. Graphics were nothing special. Gameplay wasn't very interesting.

Comments: 
I have never played any of the previous games in this series, if there are any, but I found this one pretty boring. I'm not sure what it was exactly that put me off, but the gameplay seemed really repetitive, the graphics weren't that interesting, and it just didn't appeal to me, right from the start.
