Game du Jour is a "One Deal a Day" website for casual PC games. Every day of the week, GameDuJour.com sells one downloadable game at a steep discount.
Every week Blogcritics Magazine will bring you a look of those games, so you know what to expect when the featured game gets its 24 hours in the spotlight.
We aim to publish reviews at least one day before the game goes on sale at GameDuJour.com, so please check back regularly. But we will admit, as much as we love casual games here at Blogcritics, we won't be able to get to every title.

Elixir pits the player against the clock in a race to, literally, pop as many pills as possible. As iridescent capsules descend down the screen, the player must explode as many pills as possible, but only those that are not supporting the capsules above them.
Enter Mayawaka, the Worlds of Wonder, and embark upon a mystical adventure unlike any other. Use your mouse or cursor keys to maneuver your brave little character across each ancient carved pyramid, moving quickly and carefully to avoid the evil creatures that try to knock you off at every turn.
Gish isn't your average hero, in fact he's not your average anything... see Gish is a ball of tar. A Sunday stroll with his lady friend Brea goes awry when a shadowy figure emerges from an open manhole and pulls Brea into the ground below. Following Brea's calls for help Gish suddenly finds himself in the subterranean sewers of Dross, a long forgotten city filled with twisting corridors, evil traps and some of the most demented creatures imaginable.
