A Vampire Story Icon
Fun game, with technical difficultues, and bad support.
by Andre Wehe, USA - Jan 11th 2010

First about the game design:
The best in this game are funny dialogs and the strange characters like a vampyre lady neglecting she is a vampire - hilarious.

Technical difficulties:
The game runs nice under Leopard, but struggles in Snow Leopard with occasional crashes or even forcing you to cold-restart your computer. It is a bummer that one cannot switch between applications when running game.

Company's support:
Beware, if one reinstalls the game more than twice one gets locked out of the game with the error message "This registration code is already registered on two machines. Please contact support@vpltd.com.com for assistance.". Unfortunately, the company does not respond to this email address quickly, if at all, at least I am still waiting for a response for several days.

Summary:
Nice game, but I expected higher quality from a Mac software.

The amount of time to enter the letters to make the final answer is not enough. Therefore even if you know the answer there isn't enough time to select the letters with the mouse. Frustraing.

An excellent mind stretcher. The right balance of puzzles, hunt and find. As a medical editor, this overall sharpens my edge and yet, relaxes the mind. Good get!

Megaplex Madness - Now Playing Icon
decent
by cecilia forbes, USA - Jan 9th 2010

pretty good for a time management game with a little strategey thrown in. the more you play the harder it becomes as the customers start comming faster and losing their patience more quickly. to make more money you also need to match the customer color with the spot you place them on. then theres the decision on how best to spend your money . upgrade ticket booths or popcorn machines? or is is better spent on more employees. i only played the demo for the hour but it did keep my attention the entire time.

The Serpent of Isis Icon
Lot of fun, but short
by Heather Macpherson, Canada - Jan 8th 2010

I really enjoyed this game - the objects are well hidden, and the puzzles are fun. Only problem is that I finished it in about 4 hours. It might keep younger players busy for longer, of course. And my husband's taking a bit longer to plough through it - but he only plays with it off and on. He's not the must-solve-in-one-sitting type.

Still, if you compare the entertainment-cost-per-minute to going to the movies, getting this game is by far the better deal! But don't expect it to occupy you for a straight weekend or anything.

Not much variety
by Abby Barnes, USA - Jan 2nd 2010

This game isn't any more or less than you would think. I was dissapointed because although you can get multiple aquariums, they are all the same looking. It would have been nice to have some background variety.

THE GAME OF LIFE - Path to Success Icon
LIFE imitates Diner Dash - Poorly
by Janice Hargrave, USA - Jan 2nd 2010

This game has lost the serendipity of the board game ("Write a bestselling book! Earn $500,000" or "A tornado destroys your house! Pay $I50,000 for repairs") and added a heavy dose of drugery. I made it through 23% of this game hoping that it would get better. The first few minutes are cute, but the rest is just repetitive and tedious. Worse, the game seems to perceive life as an endless round of pleasing everyone else in your world, but never caring for yourself... which is not a message I would consider appropriate for anyone, much less impressionable children.
