Dr. Mal: Practice of Horror
A MAD Magazine Wannabe Game
The characters in this game reminds me of the characters in MAD magazine when I was a teenager. I did not like Mad magazine incidentally.
I enjoy this type of card game, one card higher or lower than the top card of the deck, but this one for me became boring after playing about 30 minutes of the free trial. I stuck it out to the end but was very anxious for this game to end because I thought I was going to die of complete boredom.
The music was horrible, the same short melody over and over and over throughout the entire hour trial. It was for me absolutely horrendous.
I do NOT recommend this game for anyone of any age. There are much better solitaire games of this type on the market that are far more entertaining.

Strike off this Doctor! says Lance Ett
Tried this out, and couldn't even do the one hour trial. This game is going to be struck off my list of games to buy. Every time it loaded the next game it was just a black screen with a red wheel turning. At least with American Falls you get a pretty picture. The music is quirky, the cards have amusing pictures on them and patients have silly names. The cards are played just one up or one down in King through to Ace. The cartoons made me think of the 3match Unwell Mel, which is far more funny. The faster you play the more stars you get and also the diagnosis. Each patient gives Dr Mel a gift for his collection where you can replay any of the games.
For a change there is the ""Whack a Mel", when you can obtain extra cards. I think it is one for every five "Mels" you hit, you are given 45 secs to do this in. The faster you play the higher the temperature on the thermometer, when you reach a certain point it will give you an undo or a spare card and other perks, but I couldn't be bothered to find out what. I am not even spending a free game bonus on it.
There is only so many times you can stand Dr Mel jumping up at you. As soon as I've written this Review he's going to be unloaded

Play Faerie solitaire instead!
Same game as Faerie but graphics ugly rather than cute, story not fun and annoying features having to do with time and temperature and nothing to do with the game. Layouts seemed repetitive. Glad when the trial was over!
