Tornado: The secret of the magic cave
Half a Game
I bought this game on the special for $2.99, it wasn't a bad game but it ends fairly abruptly, then says the adventure isn't over. So there will be another one coming up. This was an okay game for the price I paid, BUT I wouldn't be happy if I had paid full price for it. The graphics were sort of flat, and I flew through the game finishing it in just a few hours. This would be a good game for a younger gamer. But if you have played a game like 13 Skulls this would bore you to tears.

I admit that I couldn't even finish this game, that's how boring it was. I played it for about an hour and a half. There just wasn't anything exciting about it. The story is boring, the characters were boring, and the graphics are very mediocre. The game just had no personality at all.
The game play is simple enough. Find various objects so that you can complete a task or move on to the next part of the "adventure" (I use that word very loosely). But it just seems very mindless after awhile, since you know that once you complete one boring task, another one will pop up in its place. Eventually I just gave up because of the sheer, crushing sense of ennui I experienced while playing the game. Can't recommend.

Tornado: The Secret of the magic cave
There was no difficulty here at all. Do not waste your money on this game.

Mediocre game without a complete ending
The graphics are crisp & the artwork pretty enough but the main characters are sort of drawn on top of the background scenery rather than being part of it. In addition the music will send you to sleep & there are no voiceovers.
There are two modes of play, easy with a 60 second hint recharge & sparkles or hard with a 90 second hint & sparkles where there is a hidden object. The hint will point you in the right direction if you get stuck.
The H0 scenes are not word lists; instead if you click on the sparkles a ?wheel? of pictures will appear & you have to find the objects. They are not always in the same scene as the ?wheel? & they are not easy to find; mostly because they are well hidden, blended into the scenery or just plain tiny. I had to use a lot of hints.
There are some mini puzzles & these are along the line of Simon Says, join up circuits (lots of these), one slider & a couple of rotate circles to make a picture. Nothing too difficult & there is a skip button.
The gameplay is pretty boring & I really had to work to finish, luckily the game is quite short; it took me a couple of hours. My main beef? It finished with a To Be Continued; I hate that in a great game & even more so in a mediocre one.

Not much to it
Too short and not very challenging
