slow response time

I am disappointed with the game. The graphics are not the quality I expected and there is a lag time on the paddles making the game difficult to play and not fun.

Amazing

this game is absolutly amazing! The graphix are are great and its great for casual gameplay. I litarly does have an infinite amount of levels in the dungeon! It has great cheats not to cheat like but helpful enough to be useful. Totaly worth 19.99. It runs smoothly but every once in a while a cheat could freeze your computer. =^( There is also a second FATE only for PC right now but soon to be converted! (Yay!) Great game. I recommend the demo first because its a very specific kind of game and its not for everyone. It's a great game for people who are fans of games by Blizzard or of the Zelda series. Great game.

Alchemy Yawn Time

So many of the new games have barely enough to keep me awake. Repetitive tasks done over and over again, I found nothing challenging about this game. At least with the new game "Runes of Avalon 2, there was a bit more to get on about. I would rate that game much better than this. I'm sorry I could not, in good conscience, rate this higher but hey, Truth is truth. Perhaps some folks will find it more to their taste but as for me, give me lib... (whoops, sorry, wrong venue !

Not A Good Buy

If you're 8 years old plus, don't waste your money. Graphics are great and there are a few thought worthy puzzles. All in all though if you don't find the hidden ones, after a minute the game starts showing you where they are and no way to turn off hints. Very Short and way to easy.

Azada: Ancient Magic
 – 

waaay too easy

I loved the first Azada, which took me about 1 full day of game playing to complete. Although I thought that was a short game, it was at least well executed enough to make me enjoy it. This one is extremely short and the puzzles are stupidly easy. This game took me about 2 hours. The only puzzles that were challenging were ones that had such bad game mechanics that you physically couldn't solve them in a quick way. That is a terrible deal for the money.It was disappointing. The only thing I can say about this game that is positive is that the graphics are beautiful.

Addictive and smart

This game is very challenging and enjoyable to play. The graphics are gorgeous, and the higher levels truly require strategy to solve. I just wish there were more of them!! (Not that this isn't a lengthy enough game, it's just so much fun that you don't want to stop playing!) I am on Mac OS X and did have problems with the system crashing which was disappointing but didn't stop me from solving the game.

Heroes of Might & Magic V
 – 

Pleasantly Surprised

After reading a wide variety of reviews on this game, I was unsure: some people seemed to find it lacking, and for almost 5o bucks, I didn't know if i wanted to risk it.

Glad I did.

The game is a solid next chapter in the Heroes saga, complete with the gameplay style veterans will love. The graphics are very good, not overwhelming, but the main thing is it looks good and runs perfect on my Macbook black 2GHz w/2 gigs of Ram and the GMA 950. Not a drop of lag, hiccup, or crash. Beauty.

The story is interesting, the creatures and upgrades are varied and fun.

The quests are as hard as you want them to be: there are 4 difficulty levels, and you can take your time if you want...if an early level seems too hard, sit beside your town for a few "weeks" and gather a larger army.

Combining a sort of AOE style of resource management with that classic turn-based attack system, and a very customizable hero, the game entertains and delivers...even at 50 bucks. Go for it.

(note: I recommend reading the attached manual first tho...the first mission is sort of a "tutorial" but it is sorely lacking.)

The MUST HAVE game.

If you buy one game from MGA, buy this one. It's 5 stars all the way. I can't believe this is an indie game - Mr. Blow, I salute you! The stellar soundtrack and the beautiful art, the sad but true story, plus the crazy yet awesome gameplay mechanics make this game almost PERFECT!

Cleopatra: A Queen's Destiny

Really well done.

I played this game on the PC and the Mac version is slightly better for graphics. A real fun game to play with challenging and engaging puzzles. There are excellent cut scenes and a good story. the puzzles make sense for the most part and there are plenty of terrrific locations. A must have for any adventure game player and well worth the price.

Nothing To It

I loved the preview and was so excited to continue on. Little did I know that I had nearly finished the game! Fun while it lasted, but it didn't last more than a couple hours. There have got to be better games out there. I'm very disappointed with Big Fish...they usually have great games!

non violent adventure!

A very light game that doesn't include any timing - so you an play at your own pace. No violence or death - the game involves collecting parts of food, clothing or flower bouquet recipes; Or items such as rocks, gems or other parts for friendly folks on the island to make gadgets, or for you to repair your own hot air balloon and eventually get home. I recommend it for someone looking for a light escape without too much mental work involved, and most definately for your grade school age kids. Although it is easy, it does have various levels of tasks that build, and the game feels like it always has a little more to explore. Can keep a child entertained for many many hours.

A cute animal stays with you to help you dig things up from the ground, climb trees for fruits and nuts, or 'charm' other animals into giving you additional items. Sometimes an animal will give you an egg that you can incubate at the stable, and then switch out to that more interesting, stronger or simply cuter animal.

Click on the people on the island to find out what they want, and bring it to them to build friendship points and get something in return (more money for your adventures, recipes for more items, or parts for your balloon repair). The navigation mechanism is sometimes seems a little clumsy (the screen moves only and every time your character moves, so you can't click or move around just to look around, if that makes any sense) And the multiple clicking of the characters that is sometimes needed is a little annoying.

This game is super easy, not strategic (no "real" puzzles to solve) but somehow it was still a ton of fun just to click around, explore, collect and deliver items. I would guess over 20 hours of entertainment at least to fulfill the key "puzzles" (to repair your balloon) but you can spend additional time by taking your time and exploring around, making extra recipes and flower arrangements to up your friendship levels, etc.

Non violent gameplay - you build and create rather than destry or compete. I noticed after a while, even all the recipes you are making are vegetarian! Good for children maybe ages 6 through 11 though the younger ones might need a little hlep, or for someone like me (an adult who sometimes wants a break from shooting and from thinking too hard) Probably a perfect game to play WITH your young child - they can do all the clicking and never really mess up, and you can point out helpful ideas and you will also enjoy it for quite a while.

highly irritating

you might as well just play the demo over and over. after you get the tomato and potato farms, its almost impossible to play. too bad they didnt put as much work into the strategy of the game as they did with the graphics.

Space Trader
 – 

Great Game - Worth the Money

This is a great game that is definitely worth the money.

Space Trader reminds me of Escape Velocity, except in first person, and without the space battles. You won't miss them though, because the first person bounty hunting is just as much fun.

You will find that you can easily get through all of the three enounters, however, it is worth your time to try to get better and better at each challenge scenario to unlock conversations with different folks. It's one of those games that you can enjoy playing over and over again to get to an even better score.

It's deep enough that you can play for hours, but can be played quick enough for short half hour spurts if you don't have a lot of time. There aren't very many games that have that kind of flexibility of fun.

The only way it could be better is if this game was priced at $9.99 like Space Trader: Marine Merchant on the PC.

I can wholeheartedly recommend this game!
