Treasure Seekers: The Time Has Come

Tom and Nelly are not young children anymore. Since the first game in the series that was called Treasure Seekers: Visions of Gold the kids have grown up. All the actions take place in 1930s. Nelly is busy deciphering Mayan hieroglyphs when she is suddenly kidnapped by Totenkraft (yep, he is here as well). And guess what? Of course Tom is following the arch-enemy to save his sister. Actually if you're waiting for something original in the forth game of the series, don't be so naïve. But on the other hand, though The Time Has Come reminds of all the its predecessors, it is the same when it goes about the quality of the game as well.

With The Timebuilders: Pyramid Rising you have a great opportunity to dive into unique world of Egypt mythology and raise an empire from the sands of time. If you liked Royal Envoy,you'll like this new building simulation from Wendigo Studios in which you play as a ancient Egypt`s greatest architect and construct either famous monuments or reconstruct various villages.

Margrave: The Curse of the Severed Heart

If you played The Secret of Margrave Manor and Margrave Manor 2: Lost Ship, you will be more than pleased to play Margrave: The Curse of the Severed Heart - amazing sequel! Frankly speaking I didn't like previous games very much, but this one touched me a lot! The beginning of the game seems to be pretty standard: Edwina Margrave is talking on the phone to her boyfriend, while driving to the cottage, where her parents died, to find out the cause of her parents' mysterious death.
