I play video games and review them.

Fitness Dash (Bigfishgames.com)

DinerTown lost their first tug of war match and it’s up to Jo the Jogger to get the team in shape.  Can Jo bring healthy living back to this junk food eating town?

The plot of this game is simple; it’s about maintaining a regular exercise routine.  The Aesop is a bit ironic considering chances are the only body part the people who play this game are exercising is their hand.  Still, at least it doesn’t go overboard about the message.  Another thing is that Flo is the one who ruins things in the beginning instead of trying to get everyone back on track.

The game play is a typical Dash game.  You drag different customers to different cardio and strength training machines.  Some customers will request both and you’ll have machines for that purpose.  You can bring your customers some towels and juice when they request it.  You can also bring them water to help their mood.  When your customers have completed their workout, you drag them to the shower.  You have to reach the minimum goal if you want to advance but try for expert if you feel lucky.  Did I mention that you could purchase upgrades in between levels?  If that’s not enough, every ten levels, you have to participate in a Tetris style game in order to have a tug of war victory.

This game is very addictive.  I give it 6 out of 10; a good way to kill time.

Soap Opera Dash (Bigfishgames.com)

Rosie wants to air a new soap opera but the executive managers won’t air it.  Fortunately, Flo helps Rosie film it by setting up the studio in her garage.  Can she make the big time with such little equipment?

The plot is simple yet funny.  Not only is Rosie trying to film her own soap opera, she wants to win the heart of Simon the celebrity.  Meanwhile, Simon and Quinn are having a popularity contest.

During the game, you assign citizens of DinerTown roles in your soap.  The further you get in the game, the more your cast expands.  You bring each star a script.  Then you do their hair, costume and makeup.  When you’re done, you put the required props on the set and roll the camera.  In between levels, you can purchase upgrades to make the game easier.  You won’t be able to play the next level until you reach the minimum goal.  Try for expert if you feel lucky.

This game is addictive and amusing.  I give it 6 out of 10; not a bad waste of your time.

Wedding Dash 2: Rings Around the World (Gamehouse.com)

Mr. Bigger is having a contest, plan weddings around the world to the best of your ability.  The winner will have the honor of planning his daughter’s wedding.  Does Quinn have what it takes?

The plot is actually pretty cliché, Quinn’s meeting obstacles at every turn and Mr. Bigger’s daughter doesn’t love the man she’s marrying.  You can tell how the game’s going to end, but it’s still fun to watch.

The game play is the same as the last one with the added bonus of sending your photographer, Joe Wright, to snap a picture of various guests.

You can also take their music requests, use champagne bottles to cheer up the guests in line, balloons to cheer up the seated guests and have the bride and groom kiss to cheer everyone up.  Again, you can’t get to the next level until you achieve the required goal.  You can try for expert if you feel lucky.

Like the last game, this one is fun and addictive.  I give it 6 out of 10; a great way to kill time.

Dairy Dash (Bigfishgames.com)

When Mr. Smith gets a farm from a relative, he thinks it will change his family’s life.  If only he know how much he was getting into.

The story’s quite simple; a family moves to a farm and has to work hard.  Therefore, there’s nothing special to mention except that Flo shows up.  In this game, you have to feed the animals, give them water, clean some of them and then you get the produce to sell.  After a while, you grow plants to sell.

Sometimes Flo will call and ask for some of your products.

If you’re having trouble, you can drink a glass of lemonade to speed up.  Sometimes you play mini-games at the county fair.

This game is fun and addictive.  I give it 5 out of 10, a typical Dash game.
