Didn't see this one in the listings until now (lunchtime). I'll try and post some screen captures etc later (If I can grab some time, but it's unlikely as its my 24th wedding anniversary today. We have some things planned.

We married in Bangkok and had a fabulous three week honeymoon. One of the nicest countries (w.r.t. the people) I've ever visited.

Neptunia
In Brief
Neptunia is a falling block match three game with an underwater theme.
1_main_menu

Installation:
Neptunia downloads to a 32.5 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. The newly installed game is MB in size. The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed by the user if you prefer:
C:\Program Files (x86)\MyPlayCity.com\ Neptunia
Four shortcuts are installed to the desktop. three of which can be safely deleted (Play Online Games, MyPlayCity Games and shortcuts to a free online game which vary each week). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you uncheck the box when the additional tasks window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window)

Introduction:
For hundreds of years people tried to guess the secrets of the seas. Generation by generation fathers were telling their sons about mysteries which dark frightening waters kept. Nobody knew then what was there at the bottom. But the stories were so capturing and full of puzzles that many of young men tried to solve them. They prepared for long dangerous trips in attempts to discover new creatures they had heard about in their childhood. And sometimes those fairy tales turned out to be a reality. Now we can't say how many of them became victims of their own curiosity, but it is obvious that the mystery still remains the same. What is there in those seas? If you still haven't read tales about magic lands and civilizations, you have a perfect chance to learn a lot about them. Everything will depend upon your desire and imagination. Neptunia will show you a lot of things you haven't seen before. Try to be attentive while moving stones. Special bonuses will help you on your way. All you need is to be careful and release stones with crosses to proceed. Don't be shy, make attempts to reach excellent results and become an experienced player. Pleasant sounds and colorful elements will make the whole process interesting and calm. But you can't relax because riddles are waiting for you in Neptunia! Solve them, pass through the levels and learn all the secrets of the mermaids. Do they really exist? Download the Neptunia game and everything will become clear at once!

The Game:
Relaxing, fun and cerebral, Neptunia – an undersea puzzler notable primarily for its extensive storyline, solid production values and leisurely action – is in many ways the quintessential casual game. Based on a simple mechanic, accessible to players of all ages and skill levels, and designed to be enjoyed at your own pace, it’ll prove equally attractive to working professionals and feisty whippersnappers alike. However, being a textbook example does have its disadvantages as well. For example, the fact there’s little innovative or memorable about the game, its sluggish tempo and the general lack of challenge presented within.
Match 3 enthusiasts of all types will find plenty to enjoy with Neptuna, starting with the detailed plotline, displayed via an ongoing series of conversational cut-scenes. The saga in a nutshell: Young girl Lisa and her grandfather discover pieces of a map that lead to a secret submarine realm and promptly set out to investigate, meeting interesting characters and discovering fabulous baubles along the way.
Despite featuring a great deal more dialogue than you may expect, the script does a sound job of setting an intriguing, if oftentimes too laid-back atmosphere. Then again, this relaxed mood is obviously intentional, designed to help melt stress away, and is further accented by supporting effects like undulating waves and swimming schools of jellyfish that flit about stage backgrounds. (Not to mention, that is, the drowsily inoffensive and airy tunes which play throughout the entire episode…)
7_-_level_1_timed

8_-_end_level_1
It’s an appropriate feel for a game set several thousand leagues beneath the ocean, and one where the action’s largely limited to strategic mouse-clicking. Essentially, each stage – consisting of an individual board inhabited by colored, hexagonal tiles stamped with seaweed, nautilus shells, urchins and other aquatic symbols – revolves around simple pattern matching and removal. All you need to know to get started: Clicking on groups of three or more similarly-hued tiles causes them to disappear from the board, with levels successfully ending if you remove special Neptune tiles (ones with swirling patterns) from play before time runs out.
Later levels do introduce extra challenges and obstacles like stones that must be shattered, nets to blow up and sea mines that destroy all surrounding objects. But, by and large, added advancements are infrequent enough that you’ll have plenty of time to master one twist before the next is introduced.
As much care as developer Intenium has put into overall production values, you’ll probably enjoy watching explosives ignite, glass shatter and bubbles swirl as you progress through multi-tiered stages that surprisingly span several vertical screens in height. Nonetheless, the adventure’s hardly what you’d call a nail-biter, especially since in main attraction Normal mode (Timed and Relaxed options are also available) freeing Neptune tiles adds more time to an already generous clock. While these concessions admittedly do make the quest less stressful and more accessible to the general masses, they’ll do little to keep experienced casual gaming vets, or older players, glued to their keyboard.
8_-_level_1_story_board

13_-_level_2
The action does improve with time, and the more you progress into the tale, the cooler the surprises that wait in store. (We’ll refrain from inserting any spoilers here, however). Still, for all the nice touches you’ll find, e.g. collectible statues and clues that advance the already enjoyable plot, none are must-see attractions. More’s the pity too… We’re quite taken in by the overall package. Even if, that is, it’s possible to get stuck on certain levels. (Though you can always restart or skip ahead in exchange for losing a life.) And, of course, aggravation occasionally ensues due to blocks hiding at the edges of the screen that annoyingly prevent the view from scrolling downward when needed.
In summation, go into Neptunia with grand-scale expectations, and you’ll be disappointed. Dive into the adventure simply looking for a pleasing way to wind down after a hard day at work, however, and you’ll find that it’s full of sunken treasure.

Conclusion:
Although the graphics are a little dated by today’s standard (released almost 11 years ago), the game is well made, simple to learn, and relaxing to play. There is little to challenge you with this game. Even in the timed mode you have plenty of time to achieve the set goals. Neptunia is ideal for the youngsters in a family, at least the game play parts. There’s a fleshed out story that continues throughout the 40 levels, which are divided into 10 stages.
If you miss today's game giveaway you can always get the game via MyPlayCity 24/7 HERE; or If you prefer to purchase the game you can get it directly from Big Fish Games HERE.
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank MyPlayCity for giving away Neptunia with the toolbars etc. removed and also to the game giveaway team, as always, for securing other ways to get free games.

Whiterabbit-uk,

Congratualations, Happy Anniversary!

I had been planning to go to Thailand in 2020 but we know how that went! Hopefully next year.

I hope you both have a great day!

Default installation would not save my user name or progress. I tried launching the program directly from the game exe file instead of the neptunia exe file (changed path in desktop launch link) - and I now can reload saved game from whatever level I last completed. Got up to level 7 so far.

No problems downloading and installing. BUT I can not ge3t beyond level 1. I played this level 3 times and then realized it is not advancing me to t he next level. I tried skipping the dialogue, not advancing, tried continuing with dialog, no advancement. I did the relaxed game, not the timed game.

Candi, remove the game folder's property of "Read Only" and then it will save your progress.

And another wish for a very Happy Anniversary, to Mr and Mrs Whiterabbit! 24 years . . . youngsters still, of course. Ours next month will be a shade older . . . !

But anyway, have a beautiful day together with your memories, and congratulations from everyone who appreciates the job you do here for us every week.

What happened to the MyPlayCity.com website?
For the past month or so, any of the links for Match 3 games at MyPlayCity.com from WhiteRabbit's posts lead to their homepage, not to the game page [even the link in his post today does not work]. There are no 'Match 3 games for PC' to download, not even a list. If you search for the game [i.e. Neptunia], no results are found.
Many other games also appear to not be available as well [[i.e. Fishdom series, Heroes of Hellas series, and many more ]. I tried to send their Tech Support an email but the captcha doesn't appear so the tech support inquiry cannot be sent. Does anyone know what is going on with them?

L,

The links are from my original reviews. Some of the MyPlayCity games may have been removed from their library; though we still get them despite t hem not being available directly from the site.

i downloaded the game and played the first level. it went back to the map and highlighted #2. i clicked on "continue the game" and it pulled up the 1st level again. i went ahead and played the 1st level again. it went back to the map and had #2 highlighted with arrows pointing at it. i clicked on the #2 and it would not continue until i clicked on "continue the game". when i did, it pulled up the 1st level again. after i played the 1st level again, it went back to the map and i did it all over again, only to go back to the 1st level. how do i move on to the second level???

Kathline Greene, the game's folder is "Read Only." If you remove that property, you'll be able to save your progress.

Reply   |   Comment by Buster  –  Last month  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Buster, thanks for that! it does indeed allow me to save my progress. but only on #1. i am still not able to progress to #2. all i can do is play the first one over and over and over.

Happy Anniversary!

Seems it does not allow you to save your game upon exiting, which means the next time I open the game, I start all over again. Should have a save game. Who would be able to sit and play for hours without a break?

Enjoy your anniversary weekend. Thanks for the games.

UPDATE: After re-booting (running Win 10-64 bit), the game is giving me an option to "continue saved game". I hope it will continue to do so when I log off it again... :-)

Reply   |   Comment by Sunnie  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+1)

Sunnie, Try Win 7 compatibility mode. I think its an older game that tries to save the game state in the wrong place. The compatibility mode fixed this for me.

Reply   |   Comment by jb  –  2 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

Sunnie, I viewed the properties of the game's folder and found it to be "Read Only." I removed that property (as admin) for the entire folder and contents. Then I was able to save the game and continue where I left off.
