I play video games and review them.

Fabulous: Angela’s Sweet Revenge (Gamehouse.com)

Emily’s fun-loving sister, Angela, moved to the Big Apple to start her career as a fashion designer.  Unfortunately, she has to work for Yum-mee, a stuck up boss who thinks she’s all that. To make matters worse, Angela’s husband, Jimmy, doesn’t support her.  Is it because there’s something going on between Jimmy and Yum-mee, or is Angela just being paranoid?

Yep, it’s a simplistic cheating plot.  Though, I have to say, I’m glad that Angela’s mad at both of them.  Warning, there will be spoilers for the game so read with caution.  The name of the game is Angela’s Sweet Revenge and she takes it out big time.  Don’t get me wrong, cheating is not a matter that you should take lightly but the way Angela goes about it seems very wrong.  With Jimmy, she goes so far as to throw seeds on his car so that birds will poop on it.  Yum-mee, on the other hand, gets to be publicly humiliated at an event she organized.

Something similar happened in Emily’s True Love and I had a problem with that as well.  Once again, I will say that Angela has every right to be mad.  However, there are better ways to go about things like this.  I admit, people have screwed me over in the past and it is tempting to sink to their level.  That doesn’t mean that you should do so.  Let’s take the song, Before He Cheats by Carrie Underwood.

When I first heard it, I thought it was a song about empowering women by destroying the cheater’s car.  I told my mom about this and she said that the behavior is destructive and insane.  You can take the moral high ground by confronting the people who’ve hurt you honestly and openly.

The game play is similar to Delicious with clothes replacing food.  You deliver the required clothes to customers and check them out at the register.  Some of the customers will try on an outfit before they purchase it.

During each level, you can make new clothes and complete a mini-game associated with each one.

Unlike previous games, this one’s layout is made of Facebook entries for each level, and you can like each comment.

I thought it was a unique system.  It also shows how different Angela is from Emily.

The game is short but fun.  I give it 7 out of 10, it doesn’t take up that much of your time.

Classic Adventures: The Great Gatsby (Bigfishgames.com)

When Nick Carraway visited his cousin Daisy, he was just hoping to make it big as a bonds salesmen.  He had no idea that he’d get caught up in so much mayhem.

Anyone who’s read the book or at least seen one of the movies knows how the plot plays out.  I’ve done all three and had to play this game due to The Great Gatsby being one of my favorite novels.  For those of you who know nothing about the story, it’s pretty hard to sum up while avoiding spoilers and condensing it into a few sentences.  All I can say is that it’s about dreams vs. reality, the carelessness of the rich and a deconstruction of the American Dream.

The game play is that of hidden object.  During cut scenes you have to collect a certain type of object enough time for points.  You play through hidden object scenes in order to advance the plot.

You can also partake in mini games just as typing out the words as they come (my absolute favorite).

When you’re done, you can use the points you’ve accumulated to purchase decorations for your house.

This game is addictive but not really all that intriguing.  I give it 3 out of 10; unless you’re a diehard Gatsby fan, you’re better off reading the book or watching one of the movies.

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.
