Mermaid Adventures: The Magic Pearl
In Brief
A match three game
mermaid-adventures-the-magic-pearl-640x480-screenshot-1
Installation:
Voyage to Fantasy: Part 1 downloads to a 77.7 MB zip file that unzips to three files, (a setup.gcd security wrapper, the set-up file and a read me). Those with multiple hard drives can save games on any drive they wish by replacing the C drive with whatever drive letter they wish the game to be installed to or If you have multiple hard drives you can save games on any drive you wish by replacing the C drive letter in the path with whatever drive letter you wish the game to be installed to. The newly installed game is 80.7 MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\Mermaid Adventures
However, if you prefer a different path for installation for example I use G:\Games\ name of game instead of 'C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity\name of game'. You can edit the default path when the Setup - Mermaid Adventures - Select Destination Location window appears.

Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop, three of which can be safely deleted (i.e. Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game; the name of which may vary each week). If you don't want to install the games shortcut to the desktop during installation, just make sure the install desktop shortcut is unchecked when the 'additional task's window appears; you will still get two of the other MyPlayCity shortcuts installed i.e. the Play Online Games and MyPlayCity Games shortcuts. Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you also uncheck the appropriate checkbox when the 'additional task's window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window).
Introduction:
Save the underwater world from an evil Octopus in a gorgeous game Mermaid Adventures: the Frozen Time! A mermaid Alice goes to the Sorceress – a wise Turtle. From the Turtle she learns that an evil Octopus has just stolen a magic clock and stopped the time. The Turtle's house is protected be magical spells that is the Sorceress and Alice are still awake.

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or getting Mermaid Adventures: The Magic Pearl to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try whitelisting the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.
If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Mermaid Adventures: The Magic Pearl and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

Hi!
Downloaded quickly and opened easily. Game play is smooth and easy. A simple matching game with
good graphics. Has hog in between to break the monotony. Thanks for another good game and have
a good week! Happy Holidays! Lee

This is a matching game where you make a chain - the longer the better. On the fourth level, it was a HOG. I played the time version and there appears to be more than enough time. Good game. Thanks GGOTD!

Good little game, though not my favourite match 3 type. The colours were bright and the HO part was not too difficult. It is easy to replay a level. Will keep it for a while. Thanks everyone.

Ok Windows 10 x64 Pro. Not exact full screen, smallish side banners that don't mess the game. Audio OK w/ sliders.
Installed to D: drive & initially launched from the installer screen rather than desktop icon & played Ok. Similar to early versions of this theme. Just from quick play seemed pretty 'fair' compared to others like this that get hard farther on with ghosts and such. Draw over cells to make chains, get bonuses, etc. Timed gives cups, achievements while untimed doesn't. Don't think can switch modes once in game. Timed has gold, silver, bronze. First round and got bronze but looks like ample time to at least finish a level. Can replay to get higher score, or advance if failed. Well defined cell images. For fans 8.5/10. Initially there was some unusual extra blank frames upon exit as well as PlayCity opening but the blanks stopped after PC reboot. Not sure why others have probs. I don't have any extra anti-virus stuff other than Windows Defender. Didn't alter icon settings. Game's .exe file 12/27/2015 which should be recent enough to avoid usual older XP or Windows 7 issues. Thanks GOTD

I haven't downloaded this game, but I did notice one possible problem for those who have tried without success.

The game on offer is called "Mermaid Adventures: The Magic Pearl", but the information section contains a chunk which is about a game called "Mermaid Adventures: the Frozen Time".

If the two games have their descriptions jumbled together, could there be a similar problem with the set-up files too? Good luck with the untangling!

WH.This game can be got ar https://toomkygames.com/download-free-games/mermaid-adventures.Maybe this would work for you.

Thanks Dusty, I will try that later. i'm playing out the last hour and a bit of the free weekend play for The Crew 2. Wish I'd have installed it when it first became available on Thursday. It reminds me a little of Fuel, the open world racing game released back in 2009, only with better graphics. I have the first Crew, but am really impressed with this one. I promised myself I wouldn't buy any more games via Steam for the foreseeable future except my two kids put some money in my Steam wallet a few moths ago. I've been using it to buy the occasional decent game that has been on sale for 75% or more; Crew 2 is 67% off, so I may wait until the Christmas sale in the hope it is reduced further. :)

Hi Demolish, the servers are not offline. Maybe your security is blocking the download due to the Themida wrapper?
