Home Sweet Home Icon
Unique Game
by Lori Buchanan, USA - Sep 20th 2008

This is one of my favorite casual games! If you enjoy designing rooms in The Sims, then I recommend Home Sweet Home. It brings out my artistic side.

Ancient Quest of Saqqarah Icon
LOADS OF PLAYTIME
by KATHY KEELER, Canada - Sep 20th 2008

This is one game you definitely cannot say is too short. I have been playing it now for just over a week and I am not even a quarter of the way through. Starts out easy enough but boy it gets harder as you level up. There are so many different types of powerup games within this game. I find I try to conquer one at a time while you are in the mode of that game. I highly recommend it for both it's lengthy play value and variety of puzzles. I would almost say it is even too long to finish lol, just because I keep playing into the wee hours.

THE GAME OF LIFE - Path to Success Icon
Game is Life - fun but repetitive
by Christopher Sasse, USA - Sep 20th 2008

The Game of LIFE Path to Success falls in the same category as Burger Shop - testing your ability to handle a multitude of tasks and occasionally providing mini-games to break up the monotony.
The early rounds and the ability to customize your game piece were cute and thoroughly enjoyed by my 5 year old and me. 2/3 into the game it becomes incredibly challenging but repetitive.
The sound is very good but the replay factor is low. An average game overall.

Addicting
by Mike Bullington, USA - Sep 20th 2008

I've had none of the problems the previous reviewer mentioned, so far. A very nicely done and quality game.

Sid Meier's Pirates! Icon
Love the game, but it's so unstable.
by John Foster, USA - Sep 20th 2008

I played it once, and then could never start another new game. It wouldn't even get to the 'select nationality' part of character creation. The whole Mac would freeze to the point where I had to hard-shutdown.

FATE Icon
Very Fun!
by Kate Bringe, USA - Sep 20th 2008

If you like Diablo and Diablo II then you'll probably like Fate. Gameplay is very similar but with slightly more cartoonish graphics. It seems more geared toward everyone instead of those of us who like to see blood and guts, but it didn't detract from the overall gameplay.

If you're a cheater beware! Not all cheat codes work with this version of the game.

For $20 I would rate it a solid buy if you like to play this type of game. If you're a hardcore WoWer, then it may not be your cup of Thunderbrew.

FATE Icon
One of the best games out there
by Sarah Lynn Gray, USA - Sep 20th 2008

I started playing this game as the PC version several years back whenever I went to my grandparent's house. The graphics were some of the best I have ever seen. I've played a lot of different RPGs and I have never been so addicted in my life. The gameplay is similar to a lot of other RPGs (you gain XP, you fight monsters, you go on quests), but the difference is your environmental interactions. It really feels like you're in a dungeon (aside from the moldy smell).

FATE Icon
Not yet ready for prime time
by Jan Fuellemann, Germany - Sep 20th 2008

Do not buy this game yet - it looks good, but still needs some fixes. Here is why:

a) In any text and in front and/or at the end of any number you see a very annoying \010 appearing. This makes it impossible to see how much gold you just need to buy something and annoying to read e.g. the intro.

b) When you quit the game, it will *not* restore your desktop icons. You have to reset them yourself and that is a no-do for any app on the Mac. Did they never test it on their machines?

c) The sound quits abruptly for a few seconds if you level up or another action comes up. IT sounds like one speaker gone and is defenitely a very bad interruption of the game atmosphere.

A promising game which was -again- released too early and had not seen any final testing. The customers have to pay for the shortsight game management. Buy it when the bugs are fixed. Then it will definitely shorten your wait for Diablo III.

Love this game
by Tana and Ron Ruyle, USA - Sep 16th 2008

It was challenging and fun with only one player at a time. It continued to get harder. As it got harder you had to figure out what would get you to the next level; like breaking all the ice and making long chains before your time ran out.

Mystery Case Files: Prime Suspects Icon
Love this game
by Tana and Ron Ruyle, USA - Sep 16th 2008

My husband and I play this game for hours together. The seek and find items change when you repeat a scene which keep things exciting. This game is challenging and things are cleverly hidden. Can't say enough good things about this game. We've had it 1 1/2 to 2 years and aren't tired of it yet.

Great game.......good graphics, original gameplay, hours upon hours of play. GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY. I would have to say it is now my favourite MATCH 3 out there.

Timed or relaxed play. I am still playing it!

G2 - Geeks Unleashed Icon
Are you kidding with this game?
by Linda Rosenfield, USA - Sep 13th 2008

I'm an avid casual game player. You might even say I'm a geek. And I have never been so disappointed in a game purchase as I was with G2-Geeks Unleashed. First, obviously made for 5 yr olds, which is cool, if you say that in the description. Second, this game was SO SHORT that if I hadn't let the hour trial run out because I was distracted and left the game up on my computer for an hour...I would have beaten it in that hour. My bad. But the game makers and the Mac store should really try to be less obvious when making a very shallow game that isn't even close to a $20 value. Don't bother with this game, trust me. You'll just up angry!

Blood Ties Icon
So-so...
by Lance Tanaka, USA - Sep 13th 2008

Not quite up to par with releases "James Pattersons Women's Murder Club" or "Agatha Christie's Peril At End House". Both of which are the high benchmarks for games of this type.

Object finding is far too easy as items are virtually sitting out in the open. Little effort is required by the player. And sorely missed in Blood Ties are the fun 'mini-games', which transitions as bonus rounds in the other two games mentioned.

Also, there's really no story to support the game. Each level is identical to the previous with no sense that the player is 'moving forward' to gain or work toward a substantive resolution.

I suppose watching the tv show enhances the enjoyment. But as a standalone game, far too pedestrian with little payoff for the time spent.

The Cursed Wheel Icon
Game is ok, but crashes after awhile.
by Troy Eckert, USA - Sep 13th 2008

The game play and everything is fine, nothing spectacular. But the game constantly crashes after a few hours of play, very annoying. The demo did not do this. Only lasted an hour, so of course it wouldn't. Contacted the publisher and developer, no response, so consider yourself warned.
