The Chronicles of Emerland Solitaire
This game is a good time waster, when it's not crashing. Don't spend your money or credits on this.

Be Warned - Lovely game but can be frustrating!
This game has lovely graphics, not too intrusive music, good voiceovers, and a reasonably good storyline (with some hidden object scenes thrown into the mix).
There are two levels of play, relaxed and not relaxed.
DO NOT BE FOOLED BY THE RELAXED MODE. I've played a lot of solitaire games and I'm almost all the way through this one playing relaxed mode and it has been one of the most frustrating and non-relaxing games I've played. Some of the layouts are just about impossible, very frustrating if you are expecting a nice relaxing time playing the game. Only stubborness has made me persist with this and I kind of wish I hadn't bought the game.
The interface is also clunky and the layout can cause you to make mistakes, which can be annoying when you've almost finally got the thing out and you accidently press the wrong button!
Basically I'm saying that if you're looking for a nice relaxing solitaire game then I wouldn't recommend going for this one.

Not "Fairway" but fun.
A high/low solitaire game that hits the right notes if you like a fantasy story to go along with your card games. Lots of bonuses to purchase and colorful graphics. You will be required to complete a tutorial which is actually the first level but is useful in explaining the bonuses and pop ups. Occasionally random hidden object scenes occur between rounds which I actually found unnecessary but were simple "find 10 of something". The card game itself increased in challenge as I progressed which was a pleasure. I personally could have done without the story line but it does contribute goals to accomplish and the card game is well constructed and interesting to play.
As the title said....it's definitely not "Fairway" but if you like high/low you will probably enjoy this.

I've played better.
The best thing I can say about this game would be that the graphics and colors are well done (in my opinion). Story line is a bit boring. I shouldn't have bought without playing first. My bad.

Nothing can equal Faerie Solitaire but this isn't a bad attempt
Based on the 1 hour trial I found this much more difficult than Faerie Solitaire - I rarely managed to accumulate enough money to buy a wild card, and as money doesn't seem to accumulate from one level to another I don't see how you're supposed to buy the expensive jewellery in the shop. I never managed to gain enough "heart points" to get a "companion" - perhaps I would have got further in the game if I had. The occasional "Find 10 of a kind" hidden object levels, and the "competing wizards" storyline are good, and the artwork is lovely, but I doubt I'll be buying this.

boring to do the same over and over again
the cardgames could be fun themselves, but what really makes the game tidious and boring is, that the developers have tried to throw in a little storyline and dialouge to make it seem as there is a story.
Well.... there really is no story, and the dialougue is awfull and disturbs the gaming - and since the gaming is repetitive to the extreme.... it's a no-go !!
I would never buy this game - not even as a DD.

I should have read the reviews!
No possibility to save the game in progress - The last 10 games are not doable or you need to be a SAINT to do a miracle!

Love the game BUT....
It keeps quitting on me. I can't get past level 2 without it quitting. I wish I could buy it, but not if it keeps quitting.

Loved it until last level
Last level ruined it for me, annoying and a waste of time & money, will be complaining!

Beautiful artwork but boring, boring, boring ....
I don't normally rate games, but this one was so intensely boring that I just had to say so. Unless you like beautiful artwork, don't bother buying this one. I did, because i thought it would get better.... it didn't.
