So you know me and Jane Austen stuff:
There used to be this really fun game on facebook called Jane Austen Unbound. You had to search different rooms and areas to find certain objects, the more you did the more characters from the books come into play. It was great.
Well like all good things-it ended.
Now they have a different game, Jane Austen Manors
I thought, well might as well try it out and see how it goes.
So the first thing you can do is dress yourself. They give you a few things, you having to purchase the rest. You have the ability to go to town and purchase more. I bought a fan-it was the only thing I could afford.
Then we have the mini games
This mini game you have to fill in the squares with the corresponding colors until you complete the embroidery.
You have to spend your gold coins to get something called a “magic fill”. If you don’t you have to go and do each individual square-one by one. With magic fill, it fills all the squares with the same letter.
It takes forever. By the time you finish an area when you look at the rest of the square you have to do:
It was awful. Boring and it takes far too long. At least real needlepoint you are doing something fun and cool, making something.
This is a hidden pictures game. You have a chance of the different main characters’ manor houses. When you click on one they show you all the rooms and the objects, you job being to go room by room try and find them all.
This wasn’t too bad, but you had to click on the object at the bottom when you found it in a room. If you didn’t it would kick you out and you would have to go through it again.
I think this was the best of the games. You are given text from a novel and have to find the words that make it up.
When you find the word, it marks it red in the text. This wasn’t difficult in what you are doing,but did get a bit confusing after a while.
It wasn’t a bad game-but really boring.
I know there are a lot out there that like it-but I’m not one to be playing it again.
