he Magic Games Collection is a set of six fun, challenging logic games -- Lines, Balls, Tetcolor, Logic Trainer, Combat Engineer, and Beads -- that are well executed in a single package. The game graphics are great and sound punctuates the game action. Select a game from the main menu window (which displays brief help), then play. High scores are recorded, and an honor roll keeps track of the family experts giving them nice funny icons. In Lines, you try to move balls to form a line of five, which is then removed. Each play generates three new balls, so you have to keep ahead or the board fills and the game is over. In Balls, you swap two balls to create a row of three of the same color, which is then removed. Balls fill in from the top, and if you plan ahead you can maximize your score. Tetcolor asks you to rotate falling blocks to line up three or more of the same color. Move too slowly and the game board fills up to end the game. Logic Trainer lets you attempt to break a four-color code in six tries. In Combat Engineer you uncover mine field with a an unusual task to switch off the certain mines in the corners of the game field. Finally if you prefer a rather unhurried real time logic game the Beads perfectly supplements Tetcolor. In Beads you rotate colors of falling blocks to line up three or more of the same color. The game speed is slower, though it is not so simple as it seems at a first sight.
