Great Fun game

I love these puzzle games. This one is really a lot of fun, puzzles are no too difficult or too easy, and it makes no pretense to be anything other than a pure puzzle game. The only negative for me is the choice between full screen (too big) or windowed, which just a tad too small. Definitely worth the money.

Scrabble Classic

Not Perfect by a Long Shot

As the game progresses it becomes apparent that the opposition is not playing from seven pre-selected tiles but is playing from a choice of all remaining tiles. This give the opposition the advantage of selecting whatever tiles are necessary to score better than the player. It is fun but too predictable.

Slow on Intel

I played the demo of this game. The global screen scrolling was deathly slow on my MacBook Pro...

Liked it, but was too short.

I loved this game. I am a hairstylist and I really enjoyed the gameplay. The problem was that I finished it in just a few hours. I wish there would have been more challenges and upgrades. But overall, it is a great game. Lots of fun!

Perfect!

This game has the same objective as diner dash, so if you are a fan of that then you have to try this game! You get upgrades to help, and they actually have a purpose, there are enough game levels so that you won't bore easy and you can see how the hairstyle has changed the person!

Virtual Villagers - The Lost Children
 – 

Really cute and fun

I don't have a lot of time to play on the computer so, for me, this little sim game is just time consuming enough. When I have time I can figure out puzzles and work with the villagers. When I don't have time I just check up on them. The villagers are really cute. They build huts, farm, fish and climb coconut trees. When all is going well they swim in the pond and enjoy the beach. The little kids run around playing "tag". It's cute!

Would be good with more things to do

I agree with the previous review - this game is really fun at first, but very easy to beat, and then there's not much to do. There should be more recipes, more ingredients, more ports. It would be really cool if you could design your own recipes. And if there were other kinds of chocolate, like chocolate bunnies or other seasonal products. A weird problem I noticed is when you're done collecting all the recipes, truffle powder totally disappeared and that makes certain parts of the game inaccessible. That said, the grapics are really cute and the little chocolate factory game is fun.

Escape from Paradise

I think this game could benefit from a few additions, such as an overall map to see exactly where everyone is at a given time. Moving around the site is clumsy. Some of the games - such as Firewalk - are slow moving and appear to be aimed at children. The games are not always succint in their instructions (take Bridge Battle for instance). I found all the games slow and would have liked a bit more excitement in them.

Halo Universal Binary
 – 

Performance increase?

OK, so I like almost everyone, I love Halo, and own the PPC version of it. I have an Intel Dual Core MacBook 2 GHz, 1 GB RAM, etc. with the infamous Intel GMA 950 integrated graphics chip. And I know that I'm not 'supposed' to play this game as you need a good ATI/nVidia one, but that's wrong. You don't. I play the PPC one very happily (I haven't tried multiplayer yet though - will this evening) with all the settings at max! Even on the biggest environments it's smooth. Looks gorgeous. Anyway, as soon as I buy this Universal edition (luckily I kept the PPC version) and run it, all is wrong. With all settings high and the timedemo on, it unexpectedly quits. It works without the timedemo. But - sometimes - scratch that - often NPC models (Master Chief too actually) just change colour! Or sometimes, are just black! It's awful. And, if you turn all the settings down, it works... but why play would you want to play it with the settings down (so it looks *awful* - and MC's visor is still black) when you have a PPC version that works with them at max! Oh, and lastly, the PPC saves aren't compatible with the UB version, so you have to start again - it wouldn't be a chore if the graphics were any good... So, in conclusion, a word of caution: Only download this if you have a MacBook Pro. It will not give you the performance boost you are looking for on a MacBook. Stick with the PPC version. It looks great, and most importantly, works.

Buggy piece of rubbish

Downloaded this game and it can't even get through the tutorial without crashing. I downloaded the update and the game is still rubbish. I am playing on a MacBook with max RAM.

Way too short!!

While I thoroughly enjoyed the puzzles this game provided, I was really surprised to see that I was near the end after a few hours total playtime. The puzzles are great! Graphics are great! I just don't think I got my money's worth on this one.

Crash bug

Halo UB crashes, will not allow you to continue a game where you left of and requires that you start again from scratch. Contact with Destineer revealed that this is a KNOWN bug, possibly a conflict with QT 7.2. When asked, they gave me a Byzantine recipe to force installation of QT 7.1.6.

Excellent Game For The Whole Family!

I usually play the mystery games but decided to try super collapse for a change. I was instantly hooked. I am ususally the only one in the family playing games on computer. The others us wii and xbox. They started watching me and then the wanted to try it. There are so many levels and galleries, so there is the right difficulty for everyone. They are short nice hopefully quick games so that you can stop and play one for a 10 min. break and go back to something else. GREAT GAME!

LOVED IT

I still enjoy it the morning with Hawwainn music, sorry if I mispelt that, and may days go by better when I've played a little. It's a great early in the morning late at night bed game, for us who like a leisurely life.

Have a good one,

John

Puzzles for hours!

This is one of the best puzzle games I've ever played. Good variety of types of puzzles, and a good progression of difficulty as the game progresses.

The first time I played it, I was hooked. The demo wasn't enough! Once I had purchased the game, I actually played it for three and a half hours straight-until I got stuck on a puzzle and realized it was late.

The fact that you can go back and re-play any of the puzzles makes it a keeper; they continue to provide me with hours of brain-twisters even after finishing the game narrative.
