Fairies is a cool casual game that I have been playing recently. You need to slide rows and columns of “captured” fairies and match colors to free them. The graphics are descent for a casual game like this. There are some cool particle effects as the fairies escape and as you make use of special bonus areas. There are four modes of play. In adventure mode, you are taken through a map and exposing fairy photos as you clear levels. Here you continue on a quest to free all of the fairies. In classic mode, you aren’t rushed because there isn’t a time limit. The relaxed mode lets you play continuously without any pressure to move on in levels. The last mode is playback which totally differs from the other modes. This one plays kind of like a game of simon. It plays part of a tune using fairy colors and you need to play it back by clicking the same colors and tune. Check it out and set the Fairies free!
Between marathon sessions of Oblivion, I find myself playing Luxor 2 a lot lately. It’s one of those simple little casual games that you start up planning to spend a few minutes on and an hour later you’re not sure where the time has gone!
What is it about matching colored balls? It’s a such a simple thing, but we feel compelled to keep doing it! From Luxor 2 to Jewel Quest II to Magic Tale and so many more, it’s all about matching up colors and patterns. I think it’s the simplicity of it that we secretly love. While there are so many hardcore games that will max out the latest 3D card, sometimes it’s nice to just fire up one of the old casual games and start matching colors.
