Frustration Factor (FF) * Fair Play (FP) *** Tedium Factor (TF) *
Inspired by some of the grandest amusement parks in the world, but with a nod towards the endearing charm of boardwalks and carnivals, Amusement World invites players of all ages to have the time of their lives with nostalgic hidden-object scenes, games and puzzles. From skee-ball to dart throwing to target shooting, all of the classic carnival games are here. With four distinct lands to explore, each with its own theme and memorable characters, there is something for everyone to love at Amusement World! (BigFish Sales Blurb)
In this game you assist Princess Nira to prepare for the Christmas Ball. Your Admission to the Amusement Park is via a Golden Ticket which you have to locate. Once in you enter a world of imaginative Graphics which are brightly colourful, playful, and fun. This is a great game for kids, and for the family. However I found some Puzzles really annoying – also the music was repetitive and really annoying.
In each scene, you search for Tickets to use in the each Puzzle; you search for Gumdrops which are Princess Nira’s favourite candy; you search for various sets of Hidden Objects; and play Puzzles like Balloon Popz that require aiming and firing skills, shooting dexterity – in other words steady eye/hand co-ordination. I didn’t complete the trial hour, but have no doubt that others will find it entertaining.
I recommend it for families.
