City Sights: Hello, Seattle!
Hello, Seattle! may seem like it’s a short game, but that’s only because you’ll find it so hard to stop playing it. It’s a wonderful take on the genre, and an enjoyable tour of a beautiful city, too. The achievements add an extra level of challenge for pros who want to test their hidden object might, but all hidden object game fans will enjoy this one.9.0 from Gamezebo

Coconut Queen
Coconut Queen is an ambitious, humorous and wonderful game, which is worth a try for every gamer, no matter of his or her general preferences. The game scores top grades in story, graphics, length, variety, innovation and the level of difficulty, and there is not much more anyone can ask for. Visit the lovely, yet slightly chaotic island and meet the angry monkey today!9.0 from Gamezebo

QuantZ
QuantZ’s creative gameplay and fresh twist on the match-three puzzle genre have the potential to keep you locked in its grasp for quite some time. With three distinctly different ways to play, there’s a lot of varied content to dig into. It also boasts an impressively stylish and well-composed presentational flair that goes far above and beyond the call of duty. Prepare for many hours of marble bursting fun.8.0 from Gamezebo

3Tones
3Tones is a marvelous breath of fresh air in a well-worn genre. Whether you’re a fan of music or of great puzzle games, don’t turn a deaf ear to this one.8.0 from Gamezebo

Aveyond: Gates of Night
Lord of Twilight was a decent introduction to the episodic format, but with Gates of Night the series really feels like it’s hit its stride. There were some lose ends in Lord of Twilight, like quests that couldn’t be complete, and areas that were visible but couldn’t be accessed, that Gates of Night takes care of. The result is a more satisfying and full experience.8.0 from Gamezebo
