I love this series of games, and I downloaded both Prague and Cairo. I have to admit I prefer Prague, like a lot of others I've seen comment. There are a lot more mistakes in Cairo as well. Such as in one particular scene it asks you to find dynamite...and the picture you have to click on is actually cinnamon sticks, not dynamite. There are a few others I have run into as well.
The only mistake in Prague I have found is in the room with the table and bench, it will sometimes ask you to find a pan. But alas there is no pan visable. If you get a hint...it shows it is on the right side of the bench, but again there is nothing there. You have to click on the right side of the bench and it magically appears out of nowhere.

I look forward to getting more of this series on GGOTD in the future. :)

Hi Barbara, yes you can uninstall the game just by deleting it. Most of the games offered by the game giveaway project can be uninstalled this way. Of course any game that has an uninstaller included it's better to use that. There are few registry entries for this game.

Regards

How can I uninstall this game?
installation applications of Windows do not show the game, and there is not how to uninstall in the folder of Cairo.
May I simply delete the folder?

Finished all the levels the first time round in relaxed mode (which still had a timer). It was alright, for my preference, it had too many puzzles and not enough hidden object levels. Golden Prague was better.

I didn't enjoy this hidden object game. The pictures were not clear enough. I much prefer the Little Shop or Mystery Case Files games.

I really liked the game and i love the find the differences in the 2 pictures myself.The only search and find puzzles i don't care for are the ones that show several shadows,even the shadows aren't very clear.those are a bit frustrating.All in all its a fun game.

Good game. This game has 56 levels. The mini games are increasingly more difficult however the whole game is easier than Mysterious City Prague.

I tried to download. I have dialup so it took over three hours. It finished a few minutes before the deadline, but when I tried to open it, I got a message of "file corrupted" I went ahead anyway and tried to unzip it, but got the same message. By then it was too late to download again, being almost three in the morning. So I gave it up and am writing this comment. Too bad for me, I have the Prague version and like it a lot. My version of Mysterious City:Prague has the relaxed mode mentioned in another comment. I hope this one is offered again sometime so I can try the download one more time.

i love this type of game my only problem is that I have to waste time on hints because I don't know what an object is. ie: horus vase, or simply the word artifact when in fact several things on the screen are artifacts. at least I didn't get docked time for random clicking. Plays fine on a Vista lap top. Thanks for the cool game, sadly I'm done with it.

Played from beginning to end, took several hours, very challenging levels mixed with easier levels kept this game from being boring. A good mix of puzzles. Graphics were great and the music was a good match. Had no problems loading, finding, opening, and playing. Used the pause a few times and was able to go right back to game. (XP)Thanks GGOTD, this was a great way to spend Sunday afternoon (mixed in with cleaning house of course)!

Just completed the game. Penultimate level is most difficult - a fairly intricate 'jigsaw' level with lots of fishes. Good fun, certainly a diversion for a couple of hours

Hi Kit,

You need to find out which graphic chip manufacturer your computer is running and also your motherboard. you can find out this information by going to the Start menu and clicking on the run command in the second colum at the or near the bottom of the list. Type in dxdiag and then click on okay. This opens up the DirectX diagnostic tool. On the first tab called system which is open by default you can see what your motherboard manufacturer is. Look to where it says system manufacturer. Common manufacturers are ABit, Asus and Gigabyte. Make a note of this, then click on the graphics tab. You should be able to see what your graphics chip/cards manufacturer is. It's more than likely going to be either NVidia or ATI.

Google each one in turn using the manufacturers name and add drivers. You could Google the following for example download NVidia Drivers. All these manufacturers have their own home sites where you should be able to get all drivers for free.

NVidia:

http://www.nvidia.co.uk/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-uk


ATI:

http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx


Gigabyte:

http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Support/Motherboard/Driver_List.aspx


ASUS:


http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us

ABit:

http://www.abit.com.tw/page/en/download/download_driver.php?pFUN_KEY=9000&pTITLE_IMG=/download/images/download.gif

MSI:

http://www.msi.com/language/


Asrock:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=939Dual-SATA2


Supermicro:

http://www.supermicro.com/support/resources/


There are several others including Intel, Foxconn, Biostar and DFI, but it's more than likely it's going to be one of the top three or four.


Once you get to the site you'll need to use the search engine and type in your particular model. (This will mean looking inside the computer, so unplug it from the mains electricity. The name and model number should easily be seen written across the middle of the motherboard.

I'd try updating the graphics and Direct X drivers first though as these are the probable culprits.

I do hope these ideas work for you.

Regards

Whiterabbit


p.s. Spiritwolf, I posted a good jigsaw clone last week over in the forums (week 29) and you'll also find several Tetris clones that I listed in yesterdays review at #1

Regarding "good games" I happen to LOVE tetris type games, jigsaw puzzles, and word games. What constitutes "good games" is a matter of personal preferences and what one person hates, another person may be delighted to have.

Hi DDS,

True, though I do send a lot of files to a friend who has a really poor dial up connection so gets too many corrupted downloads to make it worthwhile. I'll send upwards of 10 DVD's filled with mods and maps at a time for various games that we both play. He bought me Oblivion for a birthday present 2 years ago and I've been sending him Oblivion mods, so the time I spent wasn't wasted. Rather than delete the files I'll probably back them up. I intend reinstalling Oblivion soon, so will want to install lots of the mods.

Thanks for the heads up about well games Michael :lol:

To Kit, check out one of my earlier posts. Sounds like it may be a driver problem. The game is only 2 weeks old so may require newer drivers. I hope this helps. Try some of the other suggestions (I made about 7 think)

Regards

Whiterabbit

Firstly, thank you GAOTD for all the programs that I have downloaded from your great site. You guys are really awesome!
I have been a member for two years however this is my first post.
I have never had a problem with any of the downloads,however,
I downloaded todays game three times,each time all went well until I opened the game. The initial screen came up,then turned all white and...nothing more. Do any of you other members have any advice that may shed some light on this issue. I would love to have this game.
Thank you!

White Rabbit,
For free sites, have you tried 'wellgames'? I think it is connected to gametop and agames, but do not really remember if they are linked. Wellgames is for playing the usual games online, their twist is that you compete another random player. I have yet to download, but they do advertise it. Just a thought, since you seem to be well informed about all these sites and make time to investigate.
BTW - hope you are feeling better. Still getting hooked up to machines on a regular basis. Poewr to you. :P

Installed fine although I had to search for the file as it was in cairo_build and not in The Mysterious City:Cairo file. No big deal. I just wanted to take the time to say thanks a lot to GGOTD for the game. Also, Thanks to you Stephen for your precious input. It is truly apprnceciated. At least by some of us. Keep up the excellent work!!! Since it's impossible to please everybody, keep in mind that a lot of us are grateful!

I like Seek and Find games and I have a ton of them installed. This one will be a nice addition to my collections. These games can keep you occupied for hours or even days.
Thanks GAOTD.

@1: The good thing is that FF is finally back online, so you perhaps don't need to keep all that stuff in your PC.

Completely Agree with Pearlshelf.

Last 2 weekends was duplicate games or not interested in these game downloads.
I just politely and patiently waited until a new game came which it did today.
So thank you for the new game today.

Wonderful! I loved Golden Prague but started having some problems with it so I downloaded the second offering a couple of weeks back and it worked perfectly and added in relaxed mode. This one looks just as good, or maybe even better. I look forward to many hours of fun with it.

To those who want some "good games" - well, I don't like Tetrus or Arcade or shoot-'em-up games or 'run my gift shop/restaurant/hotel' games but when they are offered I just ignore them and check the next offering. We all have different tastes and GGAOTD caters to everyone. It's free... just keep checking, maybe next week will be to your liking.

Again, my thanks to Gold Casual, GGAOTD and Whiterabbit for this game and so much more :)

I'm disappointed in the complaining about the type of "free" games offered here. If you don't like what is offered "free" here, then please, by all means, "BUY" the type of games you like.

Thank you, GOTD for this wonderful game offering today! I loved Golden Prague & it appears that this new one is even better! The graphics are beautiful and the music is very relaxing. I like when you click on the wrong item, you get a red circle with a line through it to tell you it's wrong. Being American and seeing a cupcake and not immediately realizing it's considered a "pastry" is a bit humbling. lol
I love this game!!
