Great graphics but frustrating

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!

Great!

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"

Cute, fun game

Really cute, fun and relaxing - I loved the tasks that you had to do. I wish there were more games like this.

The Path

Simply astounding.

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

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!

I live vicariously

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

FATE Fills a Niche

Fate does exactly what it intends to do - fills the niche between exhausting, life and relationship-ending RPG's, and those lesser casual games that one can take or leave.

Its pretty, everything works, theres thousands of weapons, armours, potions, spells, you name it. You can't get board with the inventory.

You CAN get bored with the scenery: every level looks basically the same, and there is a tremendous amount of running around IF you don't figure out how to move with efficiency. There are ways to cut down on the running, and you can generally guess the layout of the dungeon after a time, and learn how to fight your way in a circuit that ends near the stairwell (exit).

Its complicated enough to make you excited you got your level 40, gem-encrusted, flaming sword, but simple enough that you can play for hours, forget about it for a month, come back, and pick up where you left off and be glad of this niche-filling little gem of a game.

It is what it is, and its pretty fun to kill an hour with once a week.

For a Retired Old Mac Coot, it is fantastic

Love the game. For once a good rpg type game that I, a 65 year old coot with poor eye and coordination can play successfully.

thanks for the game. Keep more like this coming for us old folks .

Lemure

Ok, so being a fan of lemmings I jumped at this game. Four levels in and I'm already stuck! The trouble with this game is there are far more workers than the original Lemmings and a couple of them are hard to control. Having said that the graphics are gorgeous and if you loved the original Lemmings and your co-ordination is better than mine then then you should love it! Hard to give it a rating cos I can't get far enough!

Great game but gets boring...

I've been looking for a 3D MMO for the mac for awhile that I like after playing Warcraft and Eve for 4 years. This game was really awesome to start with but then after a 7 levels it got too boring doing the same type of things over and over. The game was also slower paced than I had hoped for.

Expectations too high?

Maybe I just didn't get it - I'll admit that.

But the play seemed wooden, the waiting for minutes to be able to move a character a few paces, the inability to equip items (until later?) ~ I quit the demo after 10 minutes. Maybe it becomes thrilling after that and I'm missing out. Or I just saved $19.95.

Also, the grammar bothered me. "You got 199 gold" just irks me. The verb is "have" or even "earned". I think there were some "your" instead of "you're" mistakes as well. It just points to carelessness - it makes me think that if you don't have time (or staff, or an intern, or a friend, or a friend's cousin, &c. ...) to proof-read such things, were you really careful with all the coding?

It seems a nice enough little game though. I wouldn't automatically discourage people from buying it, but I think it definitely warrants the free demo.

Luxor 3
 – 

Overdone; or, less is more

Luxor 2 was a vast improvement over its predecessor, with better graphics, improved game flow, and a good mix of music and sound fx.

Now, it makes sense to me they could not simply regurgitate L2 and call it a new game.

Luxor 3, though, is a bit of a letdown. The colored balls are too busy, the backgrounds are "enhanced" with too much visual clutter, and the music and sound fx are just overwhelming, a cacophony I found truly distasteful.

Add to these problems the fact that every other screen or so presents a "puzzle" to be solved (and with precious little explanation), and I just couldn't work up any traction playing this game.

I'm gonna pass. Some gamers may enjoy this one; I have too little positive to say about it to recommend it.
