Since I am such a fan of word games (keeping my mind active!) I chose Hidden Object Crosswords. The download and installation process was straightforward. There is even an option to download Big Fish games for a free one hour trial. That way you can be sure you are happy before you purchase.
Hidden Object Crosswords is kind of a cross between those "I Spy" books and a traditional crossword puzzle. Each clue in the crossword grid refers to an object in the attached picture. The pictures are a crazy and intricate jumble of objects. Each picture has an overall theme, but includes lots of out of context objects. I found some of the items quite difficult to locate visually, even when I knew for sure what I was looking for.

Honestly, I find this game totally addictive. The clues can be challenging, and the images are complex. I'm really enjoying it!
