Usually, the summer is not really filled with quality computer game releases but this July was an exception: quite a few really high quality casual games were released last month and the best part is that multiple genres have been filled, which makes it even better for the gamer because he or she will certainly find a title to suit their taste, no matter if we’re talking about hidden object games, adventures, time management titles or innovative puzzle platformers!
So let’s check out below the best casual games of the month July 2011 – just click the link to visit the page where you can download and play these great titles! Please note that the list is in no particular order.
1. Crop Busters
Unleash the farmer in you and compete to complete this great match three adventure: there are 100 levels for you to master and a lot of content. You can upgrade your farm in the story mode, then hop in the match three area to win even more upgrades, harvest crops and buy pets to help with chores, use bonuses to win, and earn trophies for amazing feats. Check out Crop Busters here.
One really amazing game concept we have here in a game that basically is a life simulator! You start by creating your character, then hit the streets of a big city with nothing but a few dollars and a dream. It’s up for you to decide the future of your character by going to college, getting a job, decorating your house, making friends and much, much more: basically, everything you would do in real life. Can you become a really successful person? Try your best in this title, a MUST have for any casual gamer. Check out Path to Success here.
I told you that this was a really nice month when it came to game releases and Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix and Her Nightmare stands as another proof of that. We’re basically talking about a platformer-puzzle game here, but one that’s genuinely innovative and creative: the action takes place in a puzzle box where the main character has been trapped! It might sound strange, but we’re talking about a really good game so check out Vanessa Saint-Pierre Delacroix and Her Nightmare here.
If you are part of the millions that have contacted the vampire “virus” (not after being bit by one, simply because you love the world of the vampires), then the Vampire Saga – Welcome To Hell Lock is a must buy for you. An adventure game with hidden object elements, this title will certainly keep you entertained to the end. So go to Big Fish Games and check out Vampire Saga – Welcome To Hell Lock!
If it’s fun, fast and casual gameplay that you’re looking for, chances are that you’ll find what you need in Mini Robot Wars: collect energy, build little robots, and help them defend the Green Planet. We’re talking again about a very interesting game in concept so if you feel that you’re up for the challenge, don’t waste any second and check out Mini Robot Wars here.
6. Summer Rush
Well, I’m sure that if you’ve been on holiday this summer, you’d love to re-live those moments by creating your own perfect summer resort. If you haven’t been on holiday, it’s even better: now it’s the time to have fun and feel the hot sand on your feet (virtually, I know) in this nice time management game that also comes with a twist in the story: as you gain the trust of the people there with your amazing resort, you’ll also have to gather clues and uncover a criminal. Give Summer Rush a try here.
The best known vampire of them all, Dracula, has to form an alliance with his greatest enemy, Van Helsing, in order to stop the evil Queen of Vampires who wants to destroy the world with all the humans and vampires inside. This puzzle adventure with hidden object elements should not be played at night unless you have your light on! If you don’t believe me, just check out Dracula: Love Kills over at Big Fish Games!
The famous detective went on holiday in Japan but instead of the rest and relaxation she had hoped for, got a new case: a ghost is scaring away all the guests of the inn and, as you can imagine, you’ll have to help her uncover the mystery. So test out your mystery solving skills in Nancy Drew: Shadow at the Water’s Edge right now!
It’s another mystery if you didn’t get enough – and this time I’m talking about a really special game as Grim Facade: Mystery of Venice blends in a lot of puzzles in the story in order to make your time truly unforgettable, even if the story itself is not amazing (two ladies have gone missing in Venice and you have to find out the man who took them). But who needs a great story when the gameplay is so complex in this hidden object game? Check out Grim Facade: Mystery of Venice here.
10. Virtual Farm 2
And the last title on our list is a game you probably have heard of and one you might want to play if you’re a FarmVille addict! With a click of your mouse, you’ll be digging up soil, planting crops, and harvesting the fruits of your labor. From there, you’ll need to process your goods into the products people want. Cheese, ice cream, cakes and more are in demand at the market and it’s up for you to do everything. So head over to Big Fish Games and try Virtual Farm 2 right away!
