The Adventures of Perseus
The Adventures Of Perseus
This review is based solely on the free trial.
I was quite interested in purchasing this game since the preview looks decent, even if somewhat simple. I'm a sucker for untimed match-3 games, even if the graphics aren't totally all that. (Though they have to be SOMEWHAT attractive.# In fact, I was so interested I almost bought the game sight unseen, but while waiting to see if it would go on sale I decided to try out the free trial. And I'm glad I did.
I got as far as the first round. Did the match-3 part of the game, no problems. There was a little storyline introduced from Greek myth; nothing special, but okay enough. #I did find it odd that they showed this AFTER the first match-3 round, if my memory is correct, but oh well.# Then I was brought to the minigame part--a memory-sequence game. Uh-oh, I'm lousy at those; anything over 3-4 items in sequence I CANNOT remember. But I gave it a shot anyway. I was shown a symbol in a fire, and told to select that symbol from the sand around the fire. I did so, and was told I chose correctly. Not so bad.
Then I was shown three symbols in succession, and I chose those from the sand. I was told I was wrong. o_o I did this at least three times over--each time it was the same three symbols #i. e., it didn't randomize the game and select three new symbols as most memory-type games do#--and I was CERTAIN I was choosing the right symbols in the sand #there were only about six or seven to choose from, I believe#--but every single time, I was presented with a big "WRONG!"
I clicked the "skip" button then #which, unfortunately, seemed to skip both that and what might have been a followup hidden-object scene, though I'm not sure# and, in a foul mood, declined to continue playing the game, and deleted the trial.
If I can't even make it through the first level without needing to skip a simple minigame, and without being told I'm wrong when I'm certain I'm not, it doesn't bode well for my enjoyment of the rest of the game. Perhaps other users fared better than I did. :/
I obtained my free trial of "The Adventures Of Perseus" directly through Big Fish Games. I ran this game on Windows 7 with no problems.

Boring and joyless
Poor graphics, boring repetitive musac. There are similar games which are much better.This one offers nothing new or exciting.

waste of my time
this game is awful the colors are not clear you can't see them that good unless you zoom the game in, and then it's to big to see anything Bad game very bad. keep it big fish, get only if you plan on getting very bore to death and if you can see the colors, other wise don't buy

As always I play on the trial. In less than 5 minutes the game quit working. The tiles would not move. Will not be buying this game. It was really interesting but no go.
