Mega Hearts 2 Slots Review

Mega Hearts 2 Slots Review

Mega Hearts 2 Slots by Pokie Magic may be a bit cutesy as a slot machine goes, but it's fun, visually bright and clear and features a surprisingly generous set of special features. Control is fairly limited, using simple buttons to control the entire game. It's possible to even allow the game to play independent of the player by using the "autoplay" feature, though that prevents players from accessing the gamble or roulette options available in Pokie Magic games. Roulette is controlle…

Cheese Collect Review

Cheese Collect by Koh Jing Yu is an arcade puzzle game that pits you (the mouse) against your nemesis (the wily cat) as he moves his remote-control cheese around a minefield of traps.
