The Butler Did It!
The Butler Did It! is a short, dynamic mystery adventure game inspired by the famous board game Cluedo. This means that virtually every game will be different from the others. In a luxury hotel on the Swiss Alps, a murder has just been committed. Unfortunately for the murderer, Jacques-Louis Barajean, France’s best detective, is there.
A perfect coffee break game in which your deductive skills will be tested. Look for clues and evidence, question the suspects, and when you’re sure about the culprit’s identity, point your finger at him or her, just like in an Agatha Christie novel. This is The Butler Did It! No walkthrough needed; just your wits!

Use your keen eye to pick the right locations to build parks and shops. Pick your paint colors, upgrades, and landscaping to create the ultimate curb appeal and earn outstanding profits. How about a latte from the new coffee shop? Some new flower boxes from the garden center? It’s all waiting for you in Build-a-lot 2: Town of the Year!
SnakeTris from Dyvision Works is like nothing you have played before. Yes, it is a ‘block game’, but it boasts graphics, sound, and playability far beyond any rival. This is no re-make.
