Doesn't support my monitor...

I tried this demo, but for some reason it doesn't like my monitor aspect ratio (1920x1080). I would love to play it!

Game aborts too regularly

Starting with level 5 this game aborts on index range errors and on occasion just hangs up requiring a force quit. Do not buy this game. Even if it did not abort, the timing of the game's play at level 5 and up is so quick it can "win" the stage before you even click anything. - once in less than 10 seconds.

Serious Issues with Snow Leopard on new iMac 27" 2009s

Still waiting to play the game, months after buying it. Runesoft claimed they were waiting for 10.6.3 to put out a patch to correct the unplayable game. Nothing yet. And no response from the makers on repeated emails sent.

Basically the game starts, allows set up to be completed, allows you to play first level of every campaign then when you finish it simply won't save the game. Upshot is that you can not go beyond the training level on any campaign. Also it simply does not play in full screen. All you get is a balck screen with the sound running in the background.

Totally dissatisfied. If they ever put the patch out to correct this I shall write a real review. For now though it is 39.95 too expensive.

Hidden Secrets: The Nightmare

It would have been a far more enjoyable game were it not for all of the minigames- many were completely frustrating the additional 'help' added nothing to solving the problem. Many of the scenes were too dark to identify the objects. A real waste of money !!!

Nice, non-violent game with problems

Addictive gameplay. Fairly straightforward mechanics. Non-violent. Unfortunately crashes to desktop at a certain point several levels in.

Avenue Flo

Love to Play this game!

Avenue Flo, ties in all the lovable characters from previous Diner Dash and Wedding Dash games, and brings them all together in one interesting neighborhood. The scenery is great, and the puzzles are challenging. Definitely worth the money.

Empress of the Deep: The Darkest Secret

Excellent Cheap Game

I knew when buying the game that I wasn't getting into a full=fledged video game, so I took it with a grain a salt. And then found out how much fun it was! It's kind of like a mix between Myst and Mystery Case Files. I really enjoyed it!

Monkey Island

This game is more fun than a barrel of monkeys. I was sad to reach the end of the game.

My Life Story
 – 

good idea, good beginning, then yawnsville

My life story is a great idea - using time-based strategy to build up your character after graduating from high school. The graphics are cute, the music is tolerable, and the gameplay fairly slick.

Trouble is, about halfway through the game my character had enough money so that there was nothing left to struggle about, except gaining enough experience to finish the game. That was maybe 2 hours of fun, challenging stuff, followed by 2 hours of random mouse clicking and "is it over yet?"

Is it worth it to buy a game that's a good idea and half good? I feel a little cheated, but not a lot.

Heroes of Might & Magic V
 – 

great for its time, now out of date

I had wanted to buy this game for years, but it was just too much money. I finally caved in and bought Heroes V because macgamestore discounted the price 50%.

I can see why Heroes V was revolutionary when it came out for the PC - in 2006. I can see how many titles have duplicated Heroes V functionality - strategy, planning battles, building up your cities.

I played the game faithfully for a week. But there is a lot of repetition (same battles, same walks through land) and I found it kind of boring.

So if you want to see one of gaming's strategy pioneers, buy this game. But don't expect it to knock your socks off.

Warblade
 – 

Great gameplay, too short

This game is beautiful. The interface was confusing for me - there are a lot of customizable settings. Make sure you have the visible stars turned all the way up, the background is really nice.

What I've never liked about galaga-type shooters is that they are hard and boring. Warblade solves this by letting you buy upgrades and having 20 or so power-ups available inside each level.

There are 100 levels of gameplay, and you have 5 save slots so you can return to a game in progress. On the easiest setting, I was able to complete the game in 3 hours.

Babylonia
 – 

beautiful graphics

Classic match three with the twist that you restore Babylon and its gardens. You match very pretty, gem-like flowers, and when you've finished a level they spin around in a beautiful burst of color and light. You select the flowers and trees to plant in your garden, then tend them as you play. Could have used even more levels, although they do give you bonus levels at the end so you can continue to play. Visually very appealing - delights the eye!

froze my snow leopard numerous times

annoying to have to reboot, then redo completed puzzles - really detracts from an otherwise fun game.
