Win 2 Nintendo DS games from the Game Factory!

Thanks to the Family Review Network, and the Game Factory, I get to host a giveaway for not one, but two Nintendo DS games! These games allow players to escape from the stress of daily life while challenging the mind, body and spirit through relaxing puzzle games, soothing ambient sounds and authentic rainforest and oceanic visuals.
Zenses Rainforest allows players to explore the Amazon while playing games infused with rain drops, exotic flowers, waterfalls and giant trees. This refreshing experience encourages players to recharge their batteries while playing puzzle games such as Sapphire Wheel, Mirror Maze, Stack Jack and Bumble Breaker (names are currently being reviewed and may change).
Designed for casual play – whether it's for three minutes or for a three-hour escape – and offers a collection of six easy to pick up, yet addictive puzzle/brain games that are as fun as they are challenging.
A clean, fresh and "spa-like" interface and highlights the earth's natural wonders and beauty.
In Zenses Ocean, players relax themselves playing puzzle games inspired by the
movements of the tide, rippling water, riffs and corals, beach vegetation and sea life. An indulgent, soothing experience, Zenses Ocean includes high quality visuals and ambient sounds inspired by the natural sounds of the sea. Subliminal addictive puzzles such as Hot Spot, Shell Twirl, Turtle Turn, Pearl Diver and Wave Breaker (names are currently being reviewed and may change) were created to give players an escape from the stress of every day life.
The rating for the two Zenses games is: E for Everyone at they are single player games for female players.
A pleasant mixture of 2D and 3D. Zenses is controlled using the stylus only. Not a single key press is necessary.
Zenses will include a high-quality ambient soundtrack. All music from the game will be uploaded to www.gamefactorygames.com and will be available to download for free (players will be receive special bonuses holding codes to unlock).

Thanks to my wonderful co-workers we had a nice Christmas dinner and a day for the family. My husband has lost his job and we have not received any unemployment for six weeks (some kind of paper mix-up) so my co-workers pitched in and bought us a meal and bought a couple presents for my 14 year old daughter. There are wonderful people out there!

Ally said...

On Christmas day, my Grandma and Grandpa, aunt, brother, sister-in-law, cousin and her fiance, and I went to my parents house. We spent the evening playing games. We never exchange gifts because we decided that it was selfish and expensive. Today, New Years, is my birthday so my parents, brother, sister-in-law and I are going out to eat tonight. Usually, I celebrate my birthday at midnight but we are doing it different this year. Anyways, that's what we are doing for the holidays.

This was the most relaxing holidays I've ever had.
