Those players of Say What You See: The Collection who downloaded the in-app collection of puzzles, Grace’s Toons, should feel very proud of themselves having raised over £21,000 to help disabled British child Grace Windram.
For the uninformed, Say What You See: The Collection is a game that’s exactly as the title suggests. A hidden object game quite like Where’s Waldo with a hint of Dingbats, players must search each picture for objects while also unraveling their meanings too.
Say What You See: The Collection offers plenty of different in-app themed packages with Grace’s Toons, launched in September, involving 50 well-known cartoon names amongst a Road-runner-esque backdrop. In the 8 weeks since release, £21,000 was raised through the in-app package enabling Grace Windram to have a much happier life.
Little Grace suffers from Spastic Dyplegic Cerebral Palsy, affecting the tone in her legs and arms as well as core muscles across her body. The money raised means she can have a life changing operation in the USA called Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy, which will remove the tightness in her legs and will eventually enable her to learn to walk.
A fantastic effort indeed!
The money might have been raised but why not give Say What You See: The Collection a try now? It’s free to download with plenty of in-app packs available to extend the fun.
Where's Waldo? suffers from a bloated, lag-tastic implementation, load times, and a much-unappreciated timer. Where's Waldo? images are meant to be savored and explored. I don't want an app that allows (forces?) me to cheat, nor one that refuses to let me take my time.

I have decided, as an app reviewer and the editor of this fairly large site, that app developers need to stop putting out apps for the next 3 months… just so we have some time to catch up with some reviews. I appreciate all the effort, but the mind numbing number of releases are just drowning each other out. Right now, the app release schedule would be the equivalent of 100 new releases a week at the movie theater box office. Which one should you see? Do I see the bazillion dollar to make blockbuster or do I choose the indie title with all the buzz. Or heck, maybe you just want to see a comedy or a good action flick. You can only pick a few though, because 100 more are coming next week! The insanity!
Since the app release hiatus will never ever happen, I’ll go ahead and highlight a couple of the the newer apps that are making a buzz. I’ll try to only cover apps that we haven’t reviewed yet… you know, just to be nice.

Where’s Waldo? The Fantastic Journey – Ludia
Who doesn’t know about Where’s Waldo? For years and years, Where’s Waldo books captivated me by offering a simple challenge, find the guy in the red striped suit. While Waldo’s popularity has dwindled a bit (maybe it hasn’t, I have gotten a bit older), it is the perfect time waster for long trips. Imagine a 3 hour plane flight. You are fighting mind numbing boredom but just can’t throw yourself into something complicated… what to do? Search for a guy with red stripes!
