Im guessing they havnt switched to weekends, its that they can't find and distributors for GGOTD, or that they are working on alot with GAOTD, i mean they had some 100$ product, than evernote beta. Well right now i think they just fused it all, on GAOTD today (22nd), they gave two downloads, one a screensaver, and one a game. So they might be having some problems with this site.

Here's one more take on repeating games. I was on vacation last week and did not get on the computer the whole time. When I did today I saw "Age of Japan" and got all excited, it sounded great to me. Then I realized it was not the daily one, but from the weekend, and it was over and I had missed it. So I am already hoping they repeat it some day. When did they switch to only weekends for the games and will that be from now on?

I like this one better than Japan 2--the storyline in 2 didn't make much sense so it didn't add anything and this one you can choose a difficulty level. They also kept it simple. It's also not full of bonuses you have to "purchase" with your points, but that aren't always clear on what they do.

The only games are the arcade which is a timed game and the puzzle which gives you a set number of moves (although it's timed as well.)

For these small games, I love a good puzzle type or 3 match. I'm hoping GGOTD will continue some of these. I'd like it if they would mix things up instead of having a run of one type and then finally another.

Hey this is the best match 3 that's been offered and I've tried them all. I love this game.

#18 you are spot on.

Keep up the good work GGOTD. I'm a newcomer here so please do repeat games if you don't mind.

Thank you GGAOTD and RealLore Studios for offering this game again. It was on my wish list and you delivered! I downloaded it first thing this morning and started playing it. I didn't respond until now because 'life got in the way of the computer for a while'.

It is a great game and I love how the symbols flow down which is different from most other match 3 games.

I appreciate your offering some repeat applications for people like me who did not know about your site until after the original offerings and appreciate the patience from those members who have belonged to your site for much longer than me who will be disappointed because a new offering wasn't listed. My thanks to them too!

Thank you Realore and GGOTD. I love this game . Had no problems with any aspect from downloading to playing the game, graphics are nice and the music is o.k. . I just got done playing for 2 hours and its so addictive. :) Also thanks Whiterabbit I think your reviews are great and I always look forward to reading them before I decide to download a game.

Yes, it is another match 3 game but it has its own style. I give it a 7.4 (of a possible 9 since the 10 game hasn't been designed yet).

Yet another "swap tiles to match 3 in a row" game. Ho hum. The genre reached its peak with Bounce Out, the only one if this kind I really liked. This game has nothing to do with Japan.

I've been visiting this site almost daily. My first d/l was early Dec. or late Nov. '06. I've whinned about the staff's "extended" vacation, "Late" start times for start of the offers. This site has almost begun to be an addiction for me. LOL
During this time; there have been files too large d/l for dial-up, no high-end cambat or role playing over the internet and/or too "violent". "Child's play" or not enough for adult/mature. More or less puzzle games. Not enough or too many "FPS";clones of this or that. I could go on & on. I think you have cought my drift.
I've played games & used software I never would have tried or bought.
Today's "Age of Japan" is one I still play since it's first offer. I haven't lost any money on it. I tried it & liked it, kept it.
I am sometimes disappointed; but, keep coming back. I have a good chance of finding something I'll like if I'm patient. I've no control of the site.
For those that threat to remove GGOTD links & Never come to this site again .... "Don't let the door hit ya where you were split, on your way out." LOL 8-)

D/I no problem on XPsp2. I got Age of Japan a few months back but wasn't on the site when this was given away - so Thank You for the repeat. This is a very cool game!! I too love match 3 games like Jewel Quest 1 and 2 and have played Jewel Match at least 3 times through on all 150 levels.

Love the varying formats of the Age of Japan layouts, windowed mode and volume/sound controls. The choice of pieces/symbols allows for easier contrast for my low vision. I know Age of Japan 2 had some interesting twists (like the blackout and flashlight levels) so I hope this has some good surprises as the levels progress!

Overall this is a KEEPER! THANK YOU REALORE AND GGOTD!! :)

I downloaded this game the last time it was offered and loved it. The only reason I am still not playing it constantly is that I have reached what for me is the killer level and I can't get past it (there is strategy involved in what bonuses you take from level to level).

Great graphics and gameplay, but can still be played on my underpowered (1.6ghz) Sempron. I can't say the same for some of the DirectX games offered.

I put at least 8 painless hours playing this. It's sort of a combination of tic-tac-toe, Rubik;s cube, and Pachinko. I give it a gold star.

I can't understand people complaining over free stuff. I'm 57 years old and new to gaming. But if you're 21 or over you're supposed to be an adult so act like one and not a bunch of whining brats. It's free. Some have threatened to leave so go. I don't think you'll be hurting anyone here. As for the repeats, I haven't been coming here but about a month, (found this by accident), so I wasn't around for Japan 2. So repeats are needed. I noticed there have been a lot of games I would have loved to have. And so I hope they are repeated again.
To Stephan, you are the first comment I look for. Thanks again for beig such a help to us all.

I play this often when I'm on hold on the phone. It's one of my top 10 favorite games for that reason :)

It's a great match 3 game with some unusual grids, locks and twists to make you crazy for those last few blocks to clear. The upper levels are a real challenge and you can save your progress or chose to start a new game. Easy menu and pleasant music.

A good one to re-offer for the folks who missed it or newcomers to this site.

Thanks GGotD and Realore Studios for supplying me with the hours of amusement instead of frustration on the phone.

Hello #12,the main reason for repeats is that some people will inevitably miss a cool game. i downloaded majic ball2, somehow tweaked the resolution, and now i can not play it any more. Pleaaase GAOTD pls offer majic Ball 2 again. I LOOOOOOOOOOOOve arkanoid games. And well, thanks! GAOTD i start my daily web Crawling with ur website.LOLEE (south africa)

OMFG THANK YOU!!!!

I love Age of Japan, and will be buying it as soon as my paycheck comes in. It's a very relaxing game with wonderful music and suits anyone who needs some stress relief. After playing a game of Postal (which almost made me vomit) I need this. I normally play first person shooters, but this is one change from my norm I love.

After seeing all the positive ratings, I was excited to try this game. Boy was I disappointed. The graphics look terrible in full screen mode, and no option to increase the screen resolution. In window mode the game is too tiny to see on my monitor. The sounds effects are annoying. I much prefer the Atlantis games to this one....

Nice and Simple.
1. loaded easy
2. nice even graphics
3. music is ok, probably will turn off if i play regularly though
4. my grandkids love it. 4 & 6 years old.
5. can't beat the price FREE
6. a keeper
7. the arcade portion is great for stimulating mental acuity.

thanks Realore Studios and GAOTD!

Thnak you so much to GAOTD and Realore for today's offer. I have Age of Japan II and love it - now I have Age of Japan I. The download/setup took under 2 minutes on my Windows XP and the game plays without any problems. I enjoy the music, but always end up listening to my own music instead = more enjoyable!

Thank you to WR -Stephen for your wonderful review and the forum comments today. If you do not enjoy Match 3, please just come back another day and see what's offered - I am greatful every single day because I know that another new game OR program could be waiting for me to download. Thank you very much!

I like the idea of repeats at fairly long intervals. As new people find these games, it gives them a chance to get games that were first offered before they "joined". Also, people lose the games for various reasons (new machines, disk crashes, etc.) ant this gives them an opportunity to get them back.

I got Age of Japan II just after Christmas and jumped at the original. As a game, it seems to play even better than the sequel. There doesn't seem to be a "story-line" which is fine for me. That story line just confused the issue and caused a delay between levels.

This game downloaded and installed just fine on my Vista machine. I like it and I will keep it! Thanks GGOTD!!

To Chris #19 - One word for you, BYE! If you are going to freak over the first match 3 game in a while then you are just going for the drama, who needs it!

To joblo #12 - I have been coming here for about 3 months myself and doubt there has been 4 repeats in that time (there have been games repeated from MORE than 3 months ago). By the way, today's game is the 1st version, Age of Japan 2 was given away a couple of months ago. The variety of games offered lately has been wonderful!

Some members said that they liked today's version over Age of Japan2. As match 3's go this is a good one, there are better ones but, this one isn't bad at all.

Yay!!! Hooray!!! Thank You from the bottom of my heart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I had this from before and got a Trojan Horse Virus and lost everything. I'm not sure I could explain why ... but this is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE of the match 3 games! It has a little different strategy (I usually play puzzle mode - I hate timers) and I like the graphics and I like the sounds (NOTE I said sounds NOT music - I always turn the music off and listen to my own on EVERY game so with me gamemeakers waste their time putting it in!!!). But it is more than that ... it is relaxing yet challenging. It's fun. I really really missed it. I liked the version 2 but not nearly as much ... it just wasn't quite the same.

I guess this is not being really helpful if I cannot tell you why it is SO SPECIAL but it just is.
