Dream Chronicles: The Chosen Child Icon
Enjoyable, but serious glitches
by istara, Australia - May 26th 2009

Like the others in the series, this game is enjoyable with lovely graphics and interesting puzzles, but unfortunately it has a couple of huge glitches that require completely starting over. (I googled and I am not alone in having these problems, others have suffered them too).

The first is about a third of the way through when a "strange symbol" needed to open a staircase may just vanish from your inventory, or may not appear there. There is no way to retrieve it: you have to restart. However on my second run through, this part did work properly.

The second glitch is at the end with the final potion: the book in the kitchen goes glitchy and you can't do the potion puzzle, or read the potion. At this stage I can't be bothered to restart again to see if I can get it to work.

A good game if it was 9.95, or if you get it as the 2+1 deal, but I wouldn't recommend it otherwise. The glitches just ruin the sense of story and of achievement.

Runes of Avalon Icon
One word - Frustration
by CiberTiger, USA - May 26th 2009

The story line and graphics are great. The amount of time to complete puzzles is not. After getting to the first. I am totally stuck. I just can't finish. Just not enought time. Maybe I'm just slow. But I think it's frustrating. I do these for the sheer enjoyment. Not to be aggravated. They really need to give alittle. I hope I can finish the story. I have tried getting though this one screen repeatedly for a week. Help!! Wonder if I will ever finish. Oh well. If you love a real challenge. This game is definitely for you.

Fun Game!
by Sean Murphy, USA - May 23rd 2009

I enjoy point and click adventure games, and this one is a great one! If you enjoy Myst, or similar games, you will enjoy this. The puzzles are great: Not incredibly challenging, but definitely requires you to think. The graphics are beautiful, and the interface is generally intuitive. The only drawback I would say is that it is a tad pricey. Other than that, very fun, challenging game!

Ice Cream Craze: Tycoon Takeover Icon
Not quite there
by Jessica Simmonds, England - May 22nd 2009

I couldn't bring myself to finish the demo of this game let alone buy it. There's something not quite right about it. You can see that it's supposed to work like another Cake Mania or something along those lines but it definitely falls short for me.

Dream Chronicles: The Chosen Child Icon
Similar to the other ones
by K.Baillie, Canada - May 22nd 2009

As all Dream chronicles it has great graphics and explains a little more of the story this time. ie the dream. It has interesting puzzles and when you replay things are in a different area. This version has a NEXUS which is a series of gateways you can travel trough once you unlock them. YOu often have to go back and forth. I found the hint system often lacking and the game on the short side. You know they are setting you up for a 4th version. But if you enjoyed the first 2, you will love this as well.

Virtual Families Icon
by Lee Lee Truong, USA - May 19th 2009

You are basically the parent... teaching your children when and what to do. Eat, Prepare meals, go to the restroom, shower, sleep, nap, turn off the TV, work, play, make babies. etc.

Like the description says "Playing in Real time"

If you enjoy simulation games you might like this... if you want a game that has more going on you might want to try something else.

Youda Farmer Icon
Great graphics but frustrating
by abcherb, USA - May 19th 2009

When I downloaded the demo, I thought this game would be fun, but once I played to the level of getting a dairy farm I can't get any farther. The game moves faster than I'm able to play it and there is no way to slow it down for those of us who aren't lightening fast. This makes it frustrating rather than relaxing and enjoyable. I'm very disappointed and frustrated with this game. I wish I could play it longer, but I'm stuck!

Luxor 3 Icon
by charles chambaz, Switzerland - May 17th 2009

Je viens de l'acheter... et avec ma fille de 6 ans (moi j'en ai 44!), on est dj compltement accro!! C'est vrai que le principe est "simple" mais c'est souvent les meilleurs jeux d'arcade (comme le Tetris): ds qu'on commence on peut plus s'arrter!!! En tout cas je le conseille tous les fanas de ce genre de jeu de "destruction logique"

The Path Icon
Simply astounding.
by John Christopher Allen, USA - May 17th 2009

I've been hooked from the first time I played through the game - very difficult to describe the gameplay, but suffice it to say that it's very addictive, the graphics and sounds are very haunting, and the stories within as the "red riding hoods" confront their "wolves" are very touching and often sad. There is a running theme throughout the game of losing innocence / reaching childhood's end, and the artists who created the game succeeded in creating a haunting journey that is as much fun to play as it is to watch. Well done indeed - can't wait to see their next creation!

Animated Breakout
by BU2B, USA - May 15th 2009

The best animated breakout game to date for the Mac. Nice Fluid graphics. Extensive replayability. Great sound. You can't go wrong with this one. The most entertaining breakout game I have ever played, Mac or otherwise. Simple, but addictive... FANTASTIC value!

CSI: Crime Scene Investigation: Hard Evidence Icon
I live vicariously
by Andrea MacIntyre, Australia - May 15th 2009

We really enjoyed this one. Interesting story lines and suspects. Bonus' a bit of a waste of time though. A few clunky bits of game play but overall, well worth the effort. Good value for money and enjoyable experience. I agree that 10 cases would have been more like it
