A series of different mini puzzles

There are hundreds of hidden objects for you to find, with many of them set within locations on the cruise liner, such as in the lounge, the captain’s office, the rooms and so forth. You receive merit badges as you complete the different puzzles. This Vacation Adventures: Cruise Director 3 Review helps to expand what people know about the game because most people only have the short video trailer with which to judge the game.

The game has puzzles that are a little like jigsaw puzzles where you have to put the correct picture in the correct place by spinning the pieces. The trickiest games we could find within our Vacation Adventures: Cruise Director 3 Review was the match-the-icon games. They took a little longer to complete, and were slightly more tricky, yet a lot of trial and error playing will help you complete the levels quicker.

A game for the family

This is definitely a family game. There is nothing naughty or adult about the games. They are rather easy, which means they are suitable for younger children, and it has a jaunty soundtrack that is reminiscent of a song you may hear on a children’s TV show.

The sparkly visual effects and sound effects are rather nice. They help to make the hidden objects games a little different from the Flash ones that you may find free on the Internet. This Vacation Adventures: Cruise Director 3 Review should mention that the game is not free; you will have to pay to play it.

The soundtrack is rather nice. There is a mix of gaming songs that do not have words, and are mostly happy and delightful. The music is similar to elevator music, but it has a bit more of a spring in its step.

The games are as difficult and/or as easy as you make them. There are some that will tax you because they require a lot of thinking, but most of them require time more than they require thinking. You can decide how difficult you make them by trying to time yourself and/or trying to beat your best scores. If you approach the games as if they are simply puzzles, then you will find them very easy. If you approach them with a mind to doing them as quickly as possible, then suddenly the game becomes infinitely more difficult and challenging.

Conclusions

This is definitely a game for the family with an emphasis on younger children. Kids over the age of four and under the age of twelve will probably enjoy it the best. If you are sick of your child playing mainstream games, then this sort of thing may help take their minds off of it. It doesn’t have a lot of replay value, but it should take kids a few hours to complete all the puzzles and receive their merit badges. It is not a deep or complex game; it is a disposable game that may buy you a few hours of peace and quiet from your kids.
