Ancient Tripeaks II
 – 

Great game, but not without flaws

Ancient Tripeaks II is definitely a quantum leap over its predecessor. The gameplay is great, with fantastic music and graphics, but I have two sticky points:

1. Why no universal binary? Not a major killer, but I was wondering why my Intel Core Duo MacBook Pro was getting so warm, only to find out that Ancient Tripeaks II was consuming 65% of my CPU cycles and 163 MB of RAM??!? Please make it a universal binary so it doesn't have to run under Rosetta!

2. Since this game was released in October of this year, there is absolutely NO reason why this game should not have widescreen support. All Macs being released currently have widescreens; why should a commercial game with so much polish run at only 640x480 with ugly black bands on the left and right sides of the screen? Add widescreen support!

These are the only two nitpicks I have about what is otherwise an excellent game. Definitely worth the download.

You need Jets'n'Guns

There is simply no excuse for not owning this game, particularly if you are a fan of the shoot-em-up genre. Jets'n'Guns features some of the most addictive shoot-em-up gameplay since some of the classics. Its weapons upgrade system, space marines and other bystanders, and intense action make it a must-have for any gamer. And that's without mentioning the incredible soundtrack.

This game takes nothing seriously and ends up being hilariously bad-arse in the process. Download the demo, then buy the game. I doubt that you'll be disappointed.

Addictive

Beautiful graphics and a simple game format that really draws you in. I wish the resolution was somewhat better, as it can be difficult to make some things out. I know that is the idea, but the resolution is so low that the objects can be close to impossible to see. Otherwise a nice Flash game.

Poor Directions

I like the game but the directions are nonexistent so you have to figure everything out by deduction. Also, the "Classic" mode will not play for me.

Rage of Magic II
 – 

I actually had fun playing this game.

I have to admit, I have a weird knack for 2d fighting scrollers, such as Streets of Rage and Final Fight as well as the classic Golden Axe. Come to think of it, this game actually plays like Streets of Rage but has the characteristics from Golden Axe.

This particular game is a game is rather enjoyable but it does have some shortcomings that I'd like to address. Some of these shortcomings include the Sound. They sound very poor and scratchy. My recommendation to the developer is record the sounds at a higher quality. If they were downsampled on purpose for the sake of download size, then I kind of wished the developer didn't do that as more users are starting to have broadband and bigger hard drives, and feel more comfortable downloading larger files.

Graphics are good, however. I personally dig the sprited look as well as the manga-style artwork. However, I don't really like how the screen resolution looks way too blurry when stretched to full-screen. The developer should consider adding in options for Scale2X and other upscaling sprite technologies used AdvanceMAME and various other game console emulators.

I also found out that this game was written in Java. When I ran this game on a 800 Mhz G4 iBook, I had to play around with the Java Preferences in the Applications->Utilities->Java folder. I had to change my default Java from Java SE 6.0 to J2SE 1.4.2 in order to get it to run at an acceptable speed- so those with slower machines might consider this tip if the game runs rather sluggish.

Minor annoyances also include some various grammatical errors. It's always a good idea to find someone to proofread your dialogue, especially if English is not your first language.

Lastly, according to the developer's website, the serial key I purchased is supposed to work on all versions of the game: Mac, Linux, and Windows. I wanted to install the Windows version on my PC since it was a faster computer but for some bizarre reason, my serial key didn't work on the Windows version, just the Mac version I bought on this website.

The important part, however, is that I had fun playing this game. I would definitely check out RoM3, should there ever be one.
