Kingdom Tales Icon
Not the greatest time management game
by Moo, France - Oct 2nd 2014

Lost interest halfway through the demo I'm afraid…there's enough time management games that far exceed this one…royal envoy and its sequels for a start…same price, better graphics, better gameplay and bonus content…more replayability too.

Adventures of Robinson Crusoe Icon
Repetitive and boring
by Moo, France - Sep 27th 2014

There are a great many HO games out there that are way more fun, engaging and involving to play…I lost interest 5 minutes into the demo

Deadly Puzzles: Toymaker Icon
Demo was tedious enough
by Moo, France - Sep 26th 2014

One of the most boring HO games I have played..the graphics are not particularly great, there is barely a storyline to hang the endlessly repetitive unchallenging HO scenes on

Dark Ritual Icon
No starter
by Moo, France - Sep 23rd 2014

Downloaded the demo, mac meets all requirements, all I get is a blank screen for 1 second then the game quits and I get the window up with the two options, buy it or quit. Even though it says I have 60 mins to try the game. Useless…not prepared to spend even the $2.99 to see whether its just a demo problem. If they can't sort the demo launch I don't hold out much hope for the game..

Tales of Terror: Crimson Dawn Icon
A bit run of the mill
by Moo, France - Sep 23rd 2014

Not a great deal to recommend it from the demo.

Royal Envoy: Campaign for the Crown Icon
The best of the 3 titles
by Moo, France - Sep 2nd 2014

This one is probably the most fun out of the three Royal Envoy titles, though the only niggle I have is it's the only one that doesn't provide bonus levels at the end once you've completed the adventure. The other two titles have 30 bonus levels to play each, which in my mind is great value and very deserving of the title collector's edition, which lets face it is getting used left right and centre whilst providing very little for paying the extra for the edition.

All that aside, I would highly recommend any of the three Royal Envoys, they're fun to play, have a good level of challenge without being so ridiculously hard that you'd rather go and watch some paint dry than try and figure out how to carry on. And they're replayable. Great value all round.

Assassin's Creed 2 Deluxe Edition Icon
Annoying to play and navigate
by Moo, France - Sep 2nd 2014

Can't say I'm impressed with this. Perhaps with a game console it would be a different experience but playing on a mac and trying to use keyboard commands and mouse in a game that requires a high level of instant reaction is just downright annoying. Very buggy and lags all over the place, Not too impressed with the graphics either, though I'm sure it all looks great when it runs properly. All in all for a mac game this is a bit of a fail for me.

Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Deluxe Edition Icon
Another fail from Assassins Creed
by Moo, France - Sep 2nd 2014

Yet another buggy, glitchy, clumbsy and annoying to play game from the Assassin's Creed line. This is quite possibly the worst of the three for me. Can't say I recommend it at all, for a mac with keyboard and mouse anyway.

Fall of the New Age Collector's Edition Icon
Unfinished game don't waste your money
by Moo, France - Sep 2nd 2014

Although marketed as the 'Collector's Edition' it is in fact anything but. Don't let the title fool you it is in fact unfinished. The bonus chapter is unavailable and a terminal window will load when you click play. Greatly disappointed as otherwise it has some very good elements and the graphics/gameplay are interesting. Marketed as a standard edition and priced accordingly there would have been no gripes from me. This though is tantamount to false advertising and pushing out a game that has not been finished. Colllector's edition is getting tagged on left, right and centre to games that really don't merit the label, the 'bonus content' usually just consists of an extra mini-game or chapter and really is just part of the game but by cleverly labeling it bonus you feel like you're getting something extra and so will pay more.

Druid Kingdom Icon
Little game with replayability but a few annoying factors
by Moo, France - Aug 25th 2014

Agree with the previous reviewer, the character's speech bubbles are right in the way when you're trying to get stuff done quickly and there's no way to click to get rid of them. So they linger on the screen long after you've read them and are trying to see what you're doing. Very annoying. Also worth noting is the fact that there is a further level which is locked and you presume as you play the game it will unlock like all the others. It doesn't. At the the end of the game it just says, locked, coming soon. Assuming this may or may not be released. Not bad for the money though, keeps you interested.

Dead City: Love as a Cure Icon
Tedious in the long run
by Moo, France - Aug 23rd 2014

Agree with the previous reviewer, not enough to keep you engaged overall with some annoying details that just add to the general feeling of boredom and tedium. Being unable to rapidly scroll through the item lists is not a big deal at the beginning when your options are limited due to being new and having to work at getting anywhere. But once the item/option lists start becoming very long, clicking in order to scroll down just gets annoying. As does the constant running back and forth between buildings, the repetitiveness and sameness of the tasks and the poor grammar/spelling in the speech menus and character scripts. Download the demo, I think the hour you get is more than long enough to play!

Ballad of Solar Icon
A bit run of the mill
by Moo, France - Aug 23rd 2014

Not particularly engaging though quite charming, not the sort of time management game you're likely to want to play again. There's a few others out there that give an incentive for getting all levels perfect (gold stars) as they unlock either bonus games or more difficult levels. This one doesn't. All in all a bit disapointing.

Destination: Treasure Island Icon
Graphics failure - unplayable
by Moo, France - Aug 2nd 2014

Downloaded as a demo and all I'm getting is white lines rendered across the screen. mac meets minimum requirements so assuming the game is a dud, as other reviewers have pointed out.

Monopoly Classic Icon
Finally works okay
by Moo, France - Aug 2nd 2014

Monopoly classic, turn the music off and the annoyance factor diminishes considerably. There's another version of monopoly on macgamestore which as other reviewers have noted lists UK properties until you land on them, or try to do anything on them and it gives the US alternative. Enough to put me off, also graphically/ease of playability not a patch on this version.

So having bought this a few years back I was annoyed to find it no longer worked once I upgraded to Mavericks. Bizarrely though if you launch it through macgamestore it works fine. But that's in full screen. Would recommend if you're looking for a time-filler game here and there.

Brave Dwarves: Back for Treasures Icon
Demo only that was enough
by Moo, France - Aug 1st 2014

I thought i'd give the demo a go, before coughing up $20. Absolutely terrible, what are they thinking charging that much? I've played games that cost $5 and they beat it hands down. 2d side scrolling has certainly been done oh so much better, it's like something from the 80s.

King's Bounty: The Legend Icon
Graphic and crash problems
by Moo, France - Oct 2nd 2013

What appears to be a good game very sadly let down by the fact that each time you load it the characters including your own are not visible, apart from small pieces of them. The only solution I have found so far is to keep exiting and reloading over and over until it does you can see your character. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. Even if I quit and restart mac.

When I do eventually get the characters to load if I open spellbook it crashes/freezes.

Can't find any support or updates for this game either.
