  (ocean-like), the music is quite
                       valuation : 67

  karate etc to defy your enemies.
  you have to clear the 'underworld'

    turn it - tale software/kingsoft

  turn it, your task consists of
  selecting two same pieces, which
  are positioned nearby eachother.
  different colours(red & blue) and
  the apparent identity make the game
  more difficult. after 35 levels
  nothing else than saving your hiscore
  expects you.
  music is quite good, graphics are
  quite bad.

                       valuation : 63

  abundant. the gameplay itself is
  composed of many options, good
