Simajo: The Travel Mystery Game
Nice, Lazy Game
Okay, so this game is super easy to play. I like the fact children can play this game. This a game to play to unwind from a hard day without a lot of thinking. I recommend this game for those who need something a little silly and stress free.

entertaining variety puzzle game
Play different games in beautiful settings. You can go through and play each puzzle consecutively in chain mode or take your chances like a game board in dice mode.
Never dull. Play HO, find the difference, matching, match-3, swap jigsaw and flip jigsaws plus answer trivia questions, word jumbles and more.
Everything is skippable and there are unlimited rapidly recharging hints

Reminded me of Jumanji - sort of.
I chose to play the "dice" mode of play, which was very interesting.
The storyline was a bit weak. A young man enters someone's home to find it deserted. He makes his way to the attic (?), finds an open box and is sucked into it. A "guide" informs him that to get out of the "game" he must perform certain tasks. Then, we roll the dice and make our move, as indicated by the number on the dice, and play whatever is there.
This is a game of HOGs (hidden object games), find the difference, jigsaw puzzles and a vast variety of other mini games. Whether you "skip" the game or pass the game, you continue to move on through the board game you are sucked into.
The graphics were okay although the items you needed to find in the HOGs were almost impossible, as they were tiny or too well-blended into the background. The various other games were none too difficult.
If you like a game with lots of mini games and HOGs but not a strong story line, this will be for you. There is a "hint" button. I found the game too boring for me. The "story" didn't seem to go anywhere. You just ... played games.
Not a purchase. Nor would I recommend it for anyone who didn't have an expiring coupon to use.
Sorry (sad face)

bored of the board game!
I downloaded this thinking that it would be something different, and a new 'board game' they got the 'bored' bit right, only played around 30 minutes, then stopped.
I played the board game version and apart from nearly always rolling a three, I don't see why they needed to be this version as usually on a board game the markers on the board indicated something different, these didn't so I don't know whether the game would have played the same mini-games if you landed on the same spot when played again (quite frankly I couldn't be bothered to find out), the games were the usual mix of HO, spot the difference, 'block-slide' etc,and these were good (though sometimes the HO were a bit obscure.
The negatives though were that with unlimited hints and skips, there needn't have been a challenge to the game, and English was obviously not the developers first language as some of the grammar and wording were very suspect. These two flaws unfortunately brought to an end any chance of me purchasing the game.
Different yes but probably not for the right reasons.
