Lucky's Puzzle Carnival
Lucky's Puzzle Carnival is a game which desperately wants to be liked, and I wanted to like it... but with casual games getting better all the time, Lucky's is average at best
- Games are fun enough
- Slightly sluggish interface
A decent casual game, other similar games offer more than Lucky's Puzzle Carnival.
Price$ 13.00 (AUD)
The Puzzle Carnival features three puzzles: the classic memory match game, a game in which you add colours to balls to form rows which then pop, and a game in which you juggle rows and columns of symbols to restore order.
The games are fun enough, but they are fairly straightforward, without the usual modern contrivances of power-ups, unlocked animations, or a storyline linking them together. As you complete games in a series, you slowly reveal a circus poster as a reward. The "world tour" consists of posters of various cities.
You also struggle to beat your best time, and the "par" for each puzzle, which may be based on time or the number of moves you need to make to solve it.
Lucky's Puzzle Carnival is minimalistic in terms of sound and animation. There's a spirited background melody, and the occasional "Good job" speech, and that's about it. Animation is very limited. The interface, while clear, has just a hint of sluggishness to it, that small delay in responsiveness which is just enough to be noticed. (Lucky's seems to be written in Java, which explains this.)
The trial version has a limited number of levels; the full version unlocks them all. Lucky's Puzzle Carnival is a good game for younger children who may be confused and overwhelmed by the plethora of sights and sounds of other puzzle games; it might also be good for those who just want to solve puzzles and not bother with clingy unicorns.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
If you’re looking to invest in your next work horse laptop for work or home use, you can’t go wrong with the MSI GE63.
If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
Touch screen visibility and operation was great and easy to navigate. Each menu and sub-menu was in an understandable order and category
The printer was convenient, produced clear and vibrant images and was very easy to use
I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.
