Periodically, I see a game on Steam that gets me to say “Hey! I should get that for Maribou!” and, 9 times out of 10, it turns out that I was mistaken.
That said, 1 times out of 10, I happen to nail it.
That’s pretty much a dynamic where you move from saying that sort of thing for a $20 game to saying it for a $5 game to saying it for a $.99 game.
In any case, this is about one of the times that I happened to nail it for a game that was on sale for $.99.
It’s pretty much what it sounds like. Solitaire, but with a handful of quest kinda things and a fantasy theme.
If you’re looking for a game to play while you’re doing other things on the computer, a game to play while you’re watching your show in another window, or merely a game to play when you’ve been doing stuff all day and you don’t even want to think about thinking during your leisure, then you should check this game out.
When we went away to Canada, we told the housesitter that he could eat what he wanted, watch the movies that he wanted to watch, and play the games he wanted to play… but this one had its name on the icon changed to “Please don’t play this or I will lose my saved game!” only without spaces or punctuation.
Which, I suppose, is an indictment of its initial player setup function, but, even so, it’s a game good enough to get the “well, except *THAT*” treatment.
So… what are you playing?
