  1. Message to all gamers with low system specs. IObit will no longer be offering their excellent Game Booster for free from the 30th June 2012. From then you will have to pay for a copy, so make sure you download a copy now before its too late. Check the forums for more details on this news. For those who don’t know what Game Booster is, it basically temporarily closes any background programs that are not required to run your game, mainly windows suystem applications plus any other program you wish to add to the list. You can set the latest version to automatically turn on when you play your games and it will switch all services back to normal when you close the game down. It really does help those with low system specs.

    The download size of today’s game giveaway is 25.8Mb which when installed expands to 25.9MB. The game unpacks to a dual setup and activation module and a read me file. There is no activation code required as it is automatically activated via the dual activation/setup module. The default installation path is:

    C:\Games\WildWestStory

    There is no shortcut installed or a start menu shortcut. If you’re not sure how to create the latter, there’s a short tutorial available in the game discussion forums. You’ll find it easily as it’s in the stickies on the front page of the gaming forum.

    The game works on Win XP Pro 32 bit, Vista Home Premium 64 bit and Home Basic 32 bit and Win 7 Pro and Ultimate 64 bit. (these are just the iterations that I personally have, the game should work on all versions)

    The version number of this game is v1.1.135

    The Game

    Please refer to both Saetana (comment #9) and Sue Ragans Comment #10 posts below for details of the game play. Sorry, I’m really not up to doing much today.

    There are a few points missed in their mini reviews which I’ve detailed below:

    1) … Bellas side kick Coyote Cub has a bow that will charge up every time you make a match that destroys one or more of the brown tiles that lay under some of the gems. If you create a match 3 without breaking a tile the bow loses its charge. When the bow is fully charged Coyote cub will shoot lightning arrows in a few diretions destroying ore tiles for you (randomly.

    2) … If you make a match 3 with 5 or more tokens a stick of dynamite will appear where the match was made. This can be activated either by moving to one of the adjacent tiles or by double clicking on it. It will then destroy the surrounding tiles.

    3) … Unlocking different buildings improves your game play options for example unlocking the cheapest building, the gold Mine will increase the amount of gold you collect when making gold bullion matches. Whereas the convenience store unlocks hidden object games and the Quarry will allow you to collect building materials by making matches with the stone tokens. Other match 3 tokens will give you food resources (though I’ve not got that far into the game yet.

    I’m sure there are more items to be discovered, for example there looks to be another three power ups besides the dynamite, but these are locked at the beginning of the game.

    Conclusion

    Overall this is a decent match three with elements of city building and even some Hidden Object levels included. Game play id reasonably varied and the graphics are pleasant. Overall id give this a decent 7.5 out of 10. Maybe five years ago i’d have given an 8, but there have been so many released over the last several years I’ve become a little desensitized.

    Games, Games, and yet more Games plus Download, Installation & Game play Problems:

    If you have any problems installing today’s game please go HERE for help.

    If you’re looking for something other than today’s game check the didimatic site via THIS link for some brilliant deals.
    There are several other deals available from Steam as well as many more from Gamersgate, Gamestop, Greenman Gaming and GOG; all of which you can find via the Didimatic site, which I’ve linked to above (apart from Greenman gaming.

    Steam have a great sale on at the moment with prices slashed on many indie games. The 24 hour deal is Confrontation a action strategy RPG that was only released early April with 50% off and 75% off both Civilization V and all DLC’s as well as Red Orchestra 2 These will change over to other games around 6pm GMT/1pm Eastern time/11am Mountain time.

    You can get Ozzy Bubbles for free from Realore this weekend and the usual monthly free game from Alawars game box called Discord Times. (You need to install the free Gamebox from Alawar to access the free games, which for newcomers change approximately every month). If that’s not enough, check out the Game Discussion forums HERE for details of other games either free or on deals. For example, Epic Inventor, Mecha World, Miners Warfare, Re:Alistair++, OGS Mahjong, Desolate Hope, Zombie Grinder, Insane Zombie Carnage, Oolite, as well as others i mentioned last week for example a superb 3D space game called Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn which is totally free. There’s also updates to games I’ve posted over the last three years as well as several other new postings that include I shall Remain, Counterstrike 2D, a SAM Missile simulator, Arx Libertatis, SCP- Containment Breach (horror), Speed Dreams (motorsport sim), Battlemass (strategy game), Naev (space arena shmup) and a cartoon like shooter called bullet Train, plus many more (well over 2000 free games). Tx posted a FPs game based on the Crytek engine called Wreckage. Basically a free standalone of Crysis which I highly recommend.

    There is yet more indie game bundles (at least three more since last week ) You’ll find details over in the Game discussion forums HERE

    Similar Games available for free

    You’ll also find around 50 Match Three game titles over at MyPlayCity HERE,

    Please be aware of the problems associated with downloading games from the free sites such as Gametop and MyPlayCity, i.e. Toolbar installation, home page changes and search engine changes.

    A Request for help:

    Developers rely on good feedback to improve their games. If you download this game please take some time once you’ve played it a while to leave some constructive feedback either positive or negative. The more constructive feedback we get, the more likely developers are going to give more games away. The giveaway site already has a very good standing with the search engines. Developers want their products out there on the WWW, this site has the potential to do that. The game giveaway project gives away on average between 9 to 17 thousand downloads for each game depending upon what genre and how obscure the game is. That’s a lot of homes these games are being downloaded into and a lot of ‘potential’ cash that’s being lost by the developers. If we get better games because of better feedback, the community are likely to continue to benefit from the generosity of the developers. Satisfied community members are then more likely to visit the home sites of those developers and purchase games that they may not have bothered with before they discovered the developer via the game giveaway site, thus giving the developers more incentives to give away even more decent games.

    Please leave some feedback once you’ve checked the game out. It can be positive or negative, but please explain what your reasons were for the feedback you post. You could also leave suggestions for improving the game, for example, this game could do with more block types for the levels editor, add more power-ups, describing the ones you think would be suitable, add some mini games (which seem all the rage in some arcade games now) or enable the user to be able to change the in game music easily.

    Thank you in advance to all those who take the time to post a constructive comment.

    Regards

  3. This is a nice mix of match three en hiding objects game.
    Though match three is not really my cup of tea it is quite enjoyable for a short time. To mix it with hiding object gameplay is very nice for me (I do like HOGs) and does the trick.

    The graphics are just beautiful and they really succeeded to put a storyline into it. Every story line in match three games is very much artificial of course but they put some nifty touches into this game (suddenly a cowboy walks into your match three to name one) to remember you of the storyline.

    It all breaths a nice atmosphere. You can install the game on a usb-stick to take it with you or copy to another pc (you could loose some settings though when using it on a different pc).
    Pitty though, like almost always, you have to start the game full screenmode rather then having a choice, though you can change it afterwards.

    I’m looking forward to see more games from Seppia Interactive.
