Dream Chronicles 2

Faye is back and puzzling her way through even more enchanted realms in this mesmerizing, much-anticipated sequel to Dream Chronicles! Locked away within the Ancients’ Place by Lilith, Fairy Queen of Dreams, Faye needs your help to navigate through intricate puzzles and magical landscapes. Help piece together the origin of the fairies, hunt for clues and dream jewels and travel back and forth between the realms of humans and immortals in this alluring sequel!

Mahjong Epic

Playing Mahjong Epic could not be simpler! You goal is to remove all the tiles on a board. To remove them, you just click on pairs of identical tiles. Some tiles cannot be removed. If a tile has another tile on top of it, or it has tiles on both its right and left side, that tile is locked, and cannot be removed. If you get stuck, you can undo your moves all the way back to the start again!

Tale of Three Vikings

In Tale of Three Vikings you join the cannon-wielding Hagbard, the timid — but loyal — Barni and the profiteering inventor, Belgr, as they battle orcs, skeletons, dragons and other villains in their attempt to unravel the mystery that descends upon their hometown of Thorvald, early one Frey’s Day afternoon. Tale of 3 Vikings is casual gamer-friendly with its cast of colorful characters, light-hearted story and its unusual selection of weaponry (including the Chicken Bomb and the Shark Attack — which do exactly what it sounds like they might.) The gameplay is focused on fun: deciding which ammunition to purchase for the challenge ahead, rather than making the perfect shot every single time. There are three modes of play: the level-based Story Mode, the endurance challenge of Survival Mode and the Two Player Mode, for when you want to go head-to-head with your friends!

Runes of Avalon 2

Take a fantastic journey through a magical world as you match the runes to help Evelyne fulfill her mission and find her way home. Welcome to the once glorious empire of Avalon, now clouded by the darkness of the evil Morganna’s spells. After defeating Morganna in an intense magical battle, Evelyne, the protector of Avalon, must now cleanse Avalon from the dark curse with her Rune Magic. Help Evelyne to complete her mission and find her way home by matching the runes, encountering new locations, new spells and new challenges along the way. With three game modes and some unexpected twists, Runes of Avalon 2 takes you to an enchanting world of magic and mystery you won’t want to leave.


In Yardmaster, 100 passengers represented as smileys of different colors and moods are waiting in a queue to board the train. Clear combinations of at least three repeating colors or moods to lead the passengers through the carriage door. You will progress to the next level as soon as there is no one left above the laser line.

One smiley is added to the queue after a combination is cleared. Every combination grants you Yardmaster bonus points. Longer combinations grant more bonus points. The amount of collected points doubles if the combination is both of the same color and the same mood. Some combinations may trigger the adjacent smileys to form new combinations – you will be awarded a squared sum of points for these.

Gallop for Gold

Beat the bookie and share the fun in Gallop for Gold… with the first ever Nudge Jackpot and 6 unique bookie bonuses in the feature bonus round – this really is the mane event. Order Gallop for Gold and receive the 5 reel deluxe edition AND the 6 reel and special edition versions! During normal play the highly fashionable hostess acts as a wildcard and substitutes for all symbols except scattered horses.


Let’s hope your math skills are on par! You’ll need them in order to solve the tough puzzles in this math based challenge. Meet the total sum of the clue numbers in each column but don’t use the same number twice. With multiple modes and randomly generated puzzles, this game offers a different challenge each time you play.
