Riddles of The Mask 2.9 5 7 7
Riddles Of The Mask Another great (although more of the same) Mosaic tile game. There are 6 Locations: Brazilian Carnival, The Day of the Dragon, The Festival of Masks, The Solstice Celebration, The Festival of Ganesha, and A Night in Venice. There are 16 different Trophies to earn which are basically achievements such as finishing 3 or 5 games in a row (raw) without using the available hints. With the coins you earn in each level you can visit the shop and use these coins to purchase 2 starting hints, rights for a mistake x 3, and refill hints on this level. If you haven't played griddlers before I know it looks difficult, but there is a very good tutorial and this is a basic game of deduction, rather than math. For instance in a 10 x 10 grid you start with the largest number, each number of cells must have a space between each group of numbers. If the numbers are 2 1 3 1 there would only be one solution in a cell of 10 tiles because of the spaces between the tiles. If you left click, the cell will be marked with a colored tile and right clicking will mark the cell with an x or empty cell until a simple picture of a mask or a dragon is completed. There is some very soothing music to accompany this game and to me it's a brain teaser game that is actually quite relaxing. You should really give this game a try, enjoy! April 14, 2014
Another Cookie, But... BASED ON DEMO FIRST IMPRESSIONS Even I?m impressed. Yes, it is another serving of identically structured 8 Floor fare, this time of the pictograph puzzles. But the theme, backgrounds and most especially music, create a whole new feel absent from their previous offerings. SIGHTS & SOUNDS The pix are gorgeous. With 6 carnivals to attend around the world, we have 6 masks and themed backgrounds of (for 8 Floor) astonishingly beautiful images. Likewise, the music varies according to where the carnival is set. It is also wonderful! The atmosphere is totally unlike the bland tasteless games I, at least, have come to expect. It is not a wide screen game, but at least it has wallpaper on the sides. GAMEPLAY I promised in previous reviews to give more time and energy towards doing an in-depth and original review, the day 8 Floor released an original game. While this is still the same structure as all their games, at least the theme gives us a breath of fresh air, so I will encourage further adventurous modifications, by commenting more on this one. Griddlers are also known as pictographs. They involve creating an image in tiles by following a series of numerical clues at the beginning of the columns and rows. Even if you have not played this kind of puzzle before, it is easy to get a basic understanding within a few riddles. They start out easy, and get progressively more complex as you progress. Although they are supposed to produce pictures, these riddles have only the barest resemblance to an image, and my imagination pretty much defeats me. Most of them, I simply do not know what they are supposed to be. 8 Floor are renowned for their tough stand early into these games. You are only allowed 2 mistakes and 1 hint at the beginning. Later, they are not so tough, and you can buy more options if you want. There are 6 festivals, and 20 masks in each, for a total of 120 levels. Each level has a 3 star system of ratings. You require a certain number of stars in each festival before you can move to the next. But a perfect score is not necessary, and you can repeat any level to improve your star rating. The stars are granted based on 3 different measures: 1. Number of coins earned 2. Time taken to complete 3. Use of hint and mistakes One feature I don?t remember seeing before, and which is a most welcome addition, is a ?cancel action? area in the top left corner (it is hard to spot). You can drag your cursor to this spot if you have started an action and realise that it is wrong. In the past, you would sacrifice a mistake for it, at best. Now, you can correct your actions without penalty. The coins you earn can be used in the shop, where you can buy more hints, mistakes and other power ups. Mistakes can be bought for as little as 2000 coins, which is the earnings of a half a dozen levels, roughly. There are a large number of trophies, mostly based on completion of different levels, but also ones like ?earn 20000 coins?. COMBINED IMPACT Again, it is nothing exceptionally new here from 8 Floor, except that they have created an atmosphere that separates it from other games of its type, and for once I feel enthusiastic about this pictograph release.

Another Fairly Mediocre Offering Here Yet another in the on-going series of fairly similar nonogram games by this developer (8 Floor). The theme this time is to do with masks. There are 120 levels. In the trial hour I reached level 14 and the degree of difficulty was already increasing steadily. You earn gold coins as you play, with clever moves earning more than more mundane ones. You get to spend the gold on power ups which include 1) Starting hints, 2) Rights for mistakes, 3) Refill hints. Your are only allowed a certain number of incorrect moves per board, which in the early levels was two. Looks like as you progress, you are allowed more incorrect moves (up to max of 6). Graphics and game play are Excellent, although I felt the design and colour of the 'fill' and 'cross' tiles should have been more distinctive and contrasting. There is non-descript ambient music which can be muted. Although I can recommend this game, There are other better ones in the genre. e.g. 'Gemsweeper' and 'World Riddles'. April 14, 2014
No Story, Just Grids Occasionally I enjoy indulging in a game of Grids and there are a few of them that I rank high but unfortunately, not this game. If you are expecting a storyline, any hint of a storyline, animation or special effects, there are none to be found here. From the menu, you jump directly into the game and with each level, your goal is to earn three gold stars in order to get that trophie. The music is on a loop and rather 'loud'. The one thing that annoyed me was there was no left hand mouse click option which made it tiresome to change your mouse each time you wanted to place a mark or empty space on the grid. For those who are familiar with the Grid Puzzle #which is what I call them# you know what I mean. You do however get a chance to replay each level and as said earn the appropriate trophies. There is also a shop to buy three types of items that are used as hints and mistakes allowed; somehow mine did not work when trying to purchase. This is no Gemsweeper or Arizona Rose which are my favorites so if you are just interested in solving grids that escalate in difficulty as you play on, than I suppose this may be mildly interesting. I think I will go back and re-play my World Mosaic series. April 14, 2014
Nothing new This is the same as the past mosaics save a few details. The levels do progress a bit faster, but to me, one mosaic is the same as the next. I have a video view in the forums. They won't let me put a url here, so visit the forum and look at the review section for this game for an address to the video. No spoilers, just the first few levels. April 14, 2014
so bad Yet another bad game from 8 floor - seems like they release one every week and they are all the same. The only thing they change are the graphics. The game play is exactly the same with every game. If the game play was good, that might be ok, but it isn't - it's horrible. I especially dislike that after just 2 mistakes the game forces you to start that round over - you cannot move to the next level. World Mosaics is the gold standard for these games. I would suggest 8 floor try them. April 14, 2014
BORING!!!!! This game is the same as the Riddler games. Boring. No purpose whatsoever. These type of Games are what is called "Logic Art" in the puzzle world. At least it has been in mine. There is no art after you have finished the puzzle. No storyline nothing. I do this type of puzzle to see what I have produced at the end of it all. I played this demo for 4 min. and deleted it. I do not need coins to buy hints, or passes for mistakes. When I play these games I play without mistakes. I like a perfect game. No buy for me ever. April 14, 2014
