Windows Vista Games
Any one from child to adult likes to play games. If it is free, it is even better. There
are many games in this world. Games provide good, intelligent
entertainment to its lovers across the world. Some games
require stamina in the body. The games are classified
into 2 categories. They are in door and out door. Indoor
games usually board, card games. They don not require
stamina. However they make one to think more. Out door
games involves adventurous, strong personalities. They
are more exciting and thriller ones for the viewers,
but, for the players they can cause problems such as
leading life in permanent disability or even stumble
them to death.
Features of PC games for Windows Vista
With technology started growing, computer games started
making hot news among computer users. The games soon
became one of the entertainment media in the field of
computers. The development of technology brought many
good games. In computer, it is possible to play an adventurous
game without any risks, on the screen. For example,
car races like Formula One. In real, only a few personalities

the car for many number of times etc.
Vista compatible games
The introduction of graphical user interface such as
Windows influenced the development of games. This made
the development of games an easy task for the developers,
and at the same time, enhanced the look, and productivity.
In earlier than windows, one had to create a graphical
user environment before developing the intended game.
This of course consumed a lot of time.
Microsoft released four games along with Windows 9X
by default. These were found in Games folder which was
under the folder Accessories. The four games were Solitaire,
Minesweeper, Hearts, and FreeCell. One used to enjoy
these games in windows. Solitaire, Hearts, FreeCell
were card games. One was allowed to install and run
other old MS-DOS games from the command prompt. Among
these four games, solitaire became a popular game, because
it was easy to understand, learn and play compared to
other three games that came along with windows 9x. However,
Windows 2000, ME added another game called Pin Ball.
This game was of 3D look, in which, the primary objective
of the game is to launch the ball and then earn as many
points as possible by hitting bumpers, panels, and flags.
In Windows Vista, all games will be grouped in a customized
folder called gaming explorer. Gaming explorer is a
customized folder in Windows Vista which provides a
good, rich presence for games. It is opened, when one
selects Games menu item through start menu.
The game explorer provides the following benefits
to Windows Vista users...
- It displays title, description, version, release
date, publisher name, and developer information for
- It displays system performance ratings, region specific
thumbnail image, game content ratings.
- Restrict the playing of particular game depending
on parental control settings.
- It makes life easier, by handling unique settings
for multiple installations on the same computer.
- All the other games get listed in the games explorer.
Games included with Windows Vista have been rewritten
to make sure that it works taking the advantage of new
graphics capabilities. This means, the older games which
are given with earlier version of Windows have been
given a new different look. Microsoft has introduced
three more new games. They are chess, Purble Place and
The Chess or Chess Titans is a board game, where the
objective is to checkmate opposite king. This game is
still a popular game among various computer users, as
it involves rapid think. It is easy (but, mentally tough)
to play chess, once the rules of the game is known.
One of the highlight of this game is that the computer
is made to think using Artificial Intelligence, for
making a move. There will be two sides equally strong
at the beginning. As the game goes on, the weak thinker
will loose the game. There will be sixteen pieces on
one side. Totally 32 pieces will be positioned at the
beginning of game. White starts. Usually a player prefers
to play with white pieces. In Windows Vista, this game
has been designed to give 3D look for the board as well
as the pieces.
Purble Place comes as a new game for Windows Vista.
It is being developed by Oberon Games. It is a good
educational game for children, which teaches pattern
recognition, shapes and colors. There are separate puzzle
games. They are, Comfy Cakes, Build-A-Puzzle, and Purble
Paris. There are 3 different levels namely, Easy, Intermediate
and Advanced. Build a purble allows one to guess till
the allotted amount of tries are dried up. Purble Paris
is a memory game which has a sneak peek bonus, which
allows the player to check what’s behind the cloverleaf,
without any penalties. As the skill level goes high,
the grid size and the pieces increases, the game becomes
timed. Shanghai or Mahjong Titans is a card game which
is also being developed by Oberon Games.
One thing is sure, in Windows Vista. Children can enjoy
playing the games rapidly. It is certain that, illiteracy
in computer among parents will be an advantage for the
children to enjoy the games more than ever before. So,
if you seek my advice, I would like to say that, before
purchasing the computer with Windows Vista, parents
should be educated to handle parental control!
