Snakes aren't a Pain

Well that was quick and easy! The Secret of Serpent Creek was a fairly typical hidden object game, and much easier than the only other one I've played previously. The hidden object sections themselves are framed in a light graphic adventure-style story where you have to move between locations looking for clues and solving other puzzles. None of the other puzzles were particularly difficult, and certainly nothing you couldn't just brute force your way through. I'm not really sure if there is a fail state for these kinds of casual games, you just keep plugging away until it's done. It was perfectly fine for what it was, and made a nice diversion from the slog of Enclave, but it really wasn't much more than a pleasant diversion.

Next up on the randometer is...Edward Grabowski's The Blue & The Gray! Ugh! It's an early war game set in the American civil war. Pretty much the kind of thing I was least looking forward to. I'll give it a quick go tonight, but I can't imagine it's going to be a keeper.
