Even the long-beloved Windows games (such as Solitaire and Minesweeper) have been redesigned and enhanced with better graphics and sound effects.
The following games are included with all Windows Vista editions:
- Purble Place
- Spider Solitaire
All the games except Purble Place (see example in Figure 3.34) were in Windows XP. This is a nice addition to the Windows games as it's great for younger users, 6 years and up. The three different games challenge your memory and matching skills.
Figure 3.34 Purble Place game included with Windows Vista.
Four new premium games are also included with Windows Vista Ultimate and Home Premium editions:
- Chess Titans
- Mahjong Titans
- Windows Hold'em (Ultimate only)
You can access all the Windows games from the Start menu:
- Open the Start menu.
- Click All Programs.
- Click the Games directory.
