New Year’s Eve is almost upon us. As the year draws to a close, we take a look back at the our most popular games. Join us in a countdown to New Year’s with a countdown of the top 10 games of 2017.
10) Dr. Cares – Pet Rescue 911 Platinum Edition
First on our list is Dr. Cares – Pet Rescue 911 Platinum Edition. We met many fresh faces in 2017, and one of those was Amy Cares. Fresh out of veterinary school, Amy faced numerous challenges, including where to live and where to work. Is it better to help animals in a small clinic in a small town, or a large clinic in a big city? Dr. Cares – Pet Rescue 911 Platinum Edition explored these questions, leading Amy to unexpected lessons and answers.
9) Big City Adventure – Rome
They say all roads lead to Rome, and Big City Adventure – Rome is no exception. The renowned hidden object series Big City Adventure has led us on vacations of exploration all over the world. This year we discovered the Eternal City, filled with thousands of years of history, art, and culture. And of course – tons of hidden objects! With Big City Adventure – Rome, the trip of a lifetime became a reality.
8) Roads of Rome – New Generation 2
Continuing the theme, Roads of Rome – New Generation 2 is a slightly more traditional take on the infamous city. Only instead of exploring the paths as a tourist, conquer them as a centurion! Left behind in the historic city, brave Valeria is determined to be far more than a damsel in distress. Leading her own soldiers, she uses strategy and resource management to complete challenges and overcome obstacles. Utilizing her time management skills, Valeria explored the very edges of the empire in Roads of Rome – New Generation 2.
7) Heart’s Medicine – Hospital Heat Platinum Edition
An annual checkup with the Heart’s Medicine series turned out the hottest time management title yet. Heart’s Medicine – Hospital Heat Platinum Edition put us back in the hot seat with Allison Heart. More than feelings for her old flame were kindled, and things heated up at Little Creek Hospital. A patient from Allison’s past also walked back into her life, igniting strong feelings. Heart’s Medicine – Hospital Heat Platinum Edition was more than a time management game: It was a journey of self-discovery.
6) Jewel Match Royale
Jewel Match got the royal treatment in Jewel Match Royale. The royal gardener’s son fell in love with Princess Sofia of Nerinia. Eager to win her hand, the gardener’s son became an aspiring nobleman and worked to restore the kingdom’s decrepit castles. Players were whisked away to 120 beautifully-colored levels and entertained with 54 exciting bonus games. A romantic Match 3 game, Jewel Match Royale won a place in our hearts.
5) Maggie’s Movies – Camera, Action Platinum Edition
A dreamer was born in Maggie’s Movies – Camera, Action Platinum Edition. With stars in her eyes, young Maggie, an aspiring Hollywood film director, set out to make her dreams a reality. But Hollywood isn’t just made of stars. It takes hard work, diligence, and time management to make movies worthy of the big screen. Determined to make it, Maggie put her problem-solving skills to the ultimate test. Maggie’s Movies – Camera, Action Platinum Edition made the cut as one of our most popular games of 2017.
4) Sally’s Salon – Beauty Secrets Platinum Edition
There’s nothing wrong with listening to the aspirations of others. In Sally’s Salon – Beauty Secrets Platinum Edition, we learned more about the feisty Snuggford hair stylist. Sally knows everybody inside-out, but very few people know the true Sally! When the radio plays a song by her lifelong crush and wishful soulmate, Sally’s off on the adventure of a lifetime. Francois joins her on an island-hopping vacation that’s anything but relaxing. In fact, Sally needed to manage every ounce of her time in Sally’s Salon – Beauty Secrets Platinum Edition.
3) Mary le Chef – Cooking Passion Platinum Edition
We all know Emily, the self-made success and time management extraordinaire. But in 2017 we also met young Mary in Mary le Chef – Cooking Passion Platinum Edition. Sometimes we need to try something before we know whether or not we like it. In Mary’s case, it was a career in a law office. Trying to juggle two lives and risking it all, Mary took time management to the extreme and cooked up a multi-course adventure in Mary le Chef – Cooking Passion Platinum Edition.
2) Fabulous – Angela’s High School Reunion Platinum Edition
There’s no way the past year could have been Fabulous without Angela Napoli! Emily’s younger sister was back and better than ever in Fabulous – Angela’s High School Reunion Platinum Edition. Sometimes all it takes for an old flame to erupt into a roaring inferno is a little spark. And sparks flew as high school friends and rivals met up for the first time in years! Time management shone this year with Fabulous – Angela’s High School Reunion Platinum Edition.
1) Delicious – Emily’s Miracle of Life Platinum Edition
Topping off the year was an unexpected new addition in Delicious – Emily’s Miracle of Life Platinum Edition. Emily and Patrick received wonderful news, yet pregnancy is never a walk in the park. True to her reputation, Emily simply couldn’t settle down! We followed the O’Malley family from the moment Emily met Patrick, to their new home, the birth of their daughter Paige, and now another baby! The family’s bigger than ever – as are the time management levels! Players the world over were touched by the story of Delicious – Emily’s Miracle of Life Platinum Edition.
