Even Lots MANY More Games I’ve Rejected! Part 1.

I have finally reached the point where I just want to make a list of games that I have rejected.  Most of them are for similar reasons – they are all YUJJO aka yukko aka yukky aka yuk, gross, erky, etc – you get the idea.

  1. Their Graphics are too blurry.
  2. They are boring.
  3. They are tedious.
  4. They are timed-only games.
  5. They are Free to Play – NOT!
  6. Their storyline is inane, or not engaging nor integrated in the gameplay.
  7. Their gameplay is repetitive.
  8. Their music is annoying, repetitive, or wrong for the game style.
  9. They have a really high Frustration Factor (FF).
  10. Over-clicking punishment.
  11. Does too much automatically, so low Player Participation (PP).

Basically they fail to satisfy me for various reasons, and I usually know fairly quickly that it’s a reject.  Some games are by a particular producer, though they are scattered throughout those as well – even the best game producer and designer can put out a rubbish game occasionally.  I’ll try to keep their details brief as the list is long.

DISCOVERY – A SEEK AND FIND ADVENTUREMumbo Jumbo Games
This gets the YUJJO AWARD!  All I wrote in my notes was YUJJO!!! Followed by DELETE!

UNLIKELY SUSPECTSMumbo Jumbo Games; Premium Casual Games
Items too small; only magnify one at a time; Graphics could be clearer.  Bored.  Unimpressed.  DELETE!

HAIKU JOURNEYMumbo Jumbo Games
Faulty!!!  Wouldn’t close so I could uninstall and retry.  I had to Shut Down the computer and reopen it so that I could then uninstall the game.  I didn’t bother trying a re-download.

LUXOR ADVENTURESBigFish Games
This showed promise, but didn’t deliver – Hidden Objects were too small, hard to see due to blending into the background; blurry Graphics; no hand to pick up Items though cog-wheel hotspot shown.  Interesting story possibly, with crossword puzzle clues for HO sites.

THE CROSS FORMULAKat Games
Not one of their successes.  This game is a bit of a pain; Puzzles had to be done as there were very few Skips; clumsy navigation/mouse Controls; storyline disjointed with subject a bit weird.

PAHELIKA – REVOLATIONSironcode gaming
While I haven’t Deleted this game yet, I still probably will.  It is very frustrating FF *****; no Hints; no Notebook so you must keep notes; dark Graphics creating poor visibility; needs the Walkthrough (available in Sales page on BigFish – add to your Favourites) as did the original PAHELIKA game.

FALLEN – THE FLOWERS OF EVILtaba games
Though you have a choice between doing the HO site or a Puzzle, the story isn’t engaging.  The player just goes through the motions of looking for things.  Graphics could be clearer, especially in HO sites.

THE PRINCESS CASE – A ROYAL SCOOP Microids Games for Life
Over-clicking punishment!!  Get into the 21st century please – it’s inappropriate.  Also story gross – you are Paparazzi.  YUJJO!  DELETED.

BETWEEN THE WORLDS II – THE PYRAMIDPuppet Life
Very little help; punishment for overclicking – really annoying; not user friendly navigation or controls; play is stilted, jerky, FF ***; becomes boring really quickly.  You lose interest and disconnect from the story almost from the outset.

BETWEEN THE WORLDS III – THE HEART OF THE WORLDPuppet Life
Though this has great SciFi Graphics the gameplay is not helpful; the HOs are blurred over some Items; it automatically does things for you causing confusion, so you feel that you missed a step; jumps you from scene to scene without your control; automatically collects power as you do HOs sites; and spends too long in the cut scenes.

WEB OF DECEIT – BLACK WIDOWBLAM Games
No information for the Puzzles; dark gloomy Graphics; little story or gameplay information; spiders YUJJO!

THE MAGICIAN’S HANDBOOK II – BLACKLOREBC Soft Games
Quite interesting game spoiled by gloomy, grey, blurry Graphics with small HOs .

MYSTERY OF UNICORN CASTLE Meridian Game Development 93
Don’t think much of it.  Not full screen; opening sequence in pics and text; Graphics too blurry; HOs too small.  Timed!!

VOODOO WHISPERER – CURSE OF A LEGENDGOGii Publishing; FunWitch
Faulty!!  DELETED.

PATHFINDERS – LOST AT SEAERS-G-Studio
Graphics could be clearer; HOs too small!  Over-clicking punishment!!  Intrusive Music, repetitive and annoying.

MYSTERIOUS TRAVEL – THE MAGIC DIARYERS-G-Studio
Mini games; HO sites; magnifying glass for small HOs – this helps but game is boring!!

NIGHTFALL MYSTERIES – ASYLUM CONSPIRACYVasi Studios
Erk!  Player profile is as a patient!  You collect audio tapes as you go – creepy!  Could be clearer.  All dolls’ eyes follow your cursor.  Over-clicking punishment!!

HIDDEN WONDERS OF THE DEPTHS ERS-G-Studio
Timed game!!  Match 3; find pairs; collect coins; collapse game; jigsaws – fun for kids.  Crab makes silly noises; irritating timing noise as you run out of time – boring for adults.  I hate timed games!

MARIE ANTOINETTE AND THE DISCIPLES OF LOKI
Faulty!  DELETED.

I recommend that, if you like the sound of any of these, you play a free trial.  You may like what I hate.  Gaming is personal.
