Cassandra's Journey: The Legacy of Nostradamus
Buy additional hints [3 types] by collecting the gems in each scene.
Choose timed or not.
Nice variety of puzzles and tricks (yes, tricks!).
Different types of clear, crisp HOS.
Holds your hand in play.
Too much awkward dialogue [you're constantly clicking to get to the next sentence].
Too much detailed instructions for puzzles which also require you to click through each sentence. I mean how many instructions do you need to do a HOS or a spot-the-differences (not many of the spot puzzles)

This game wasn't all that challenging for me. At times it felt a bit juvenile and I wasn't enthralled with the storyline, mostly due to the fact that I was hoping to learn a bit of history about Nostradamus, but no luck... Of course I shouldn't expect a game to provide me with history, but I was hoping the game developers had added something more. Not my favorite.

Maybe for someone much younger or a beginner
There's very little challenge in this game; lots of match-3, jigsaw puzzles, HOS, and "find the difference" puzzles. It moves fairly quickly and easily, so is good for a beginner or for just passing time without too much stress. Finding jewels that can be used to purchase additional hints also makes it good for the beginner.
The storyline is rather cheesy, with far, far too much dialogue to click through. What's really missing is any sense of atmosphere. The description promises "strange secrets of her family's heritage," but I can't remember a single one.
The "magic" games are basic math tricks; it would have been more interesting if they had explained the math behind them.
Usual issues with vocabulary -- developers of all games need to learn the difference between a "teapot" and a "tea kettle." A dress form is not a "dummy."
