Mystery Legends: The Phantom of the Opera Collector's Edition
 – 

nicely done

The story is pretty straightforward, supports the play. Really fun because the story unfolds nicely and the challenges are varied. Plus, the puzzles flow - they fit the story, whereas in some games the challenges just seem arbitrary. Took me hours to complete, well worth the price. Very pleased with this one.

Phantasmat Collector's Edition
 – 

Excellent!

Lots of fun, interesting and interwoven tasks, nicely drawn settings. The story is melodramatic, but it anchors the game play nicely. One of the few games of this sort that I might play again. Not overly challenging but pretty entertaining.

Twisted: A Haunted Carol
 – 

only okay

Very easy and short game - mildly entertaining. Nice settings but overall just a shadow of the best games. They changed the story but did not improve it.

4 Elements
 – 

love this game!

It's beautiful, and it's challenging. Lots of fun. Cool graphics. Occasionally you need to repeat a level. As others have said, a couple of the final levels amp up the time pressure. Definitely easier with a mouse. Played it all the way through twice when I first got it, and return to it periodically. Nicely done.

Heartwild Solitaire: Book Two
 – 

soothing

The music is wonderful, and the solitaire hands are dealt with a low-key flourish. It's all very beautiful and lush. The game itself is easy but not boringly so. As others have said, skip the story. It's nasty and poorly written. One cool feature is that you can devise your own challenges once you've finished the main story.

Royal Envoy Collector's Edition

Very well done

I've played a number of time management games, and this one truly stands out. Lots of fun!

Roads of Rome
 – 

run of the mill

This time management game was fun, but others have done it better. It's a step down from such games as My Kingdom for the Princess, Build-a-Lot 4, and Royal Envoy.

World Mosaics 2
 – 

problematic graphics

It was hard to enjoy this program because the graphics did not work well. The play itself is fun, but the screen would not clear and so there were overlapping shots. Just a mess. No excuse.

Call of Atlantis
 – 

Played it over a dozen times before getting tired of it

For some reason, this game captured me. Not sure why, since it's a basic match three with assemble-the-item hidden object to finish each level. It was challenging in places without being frustrating. Both the sound and visuals were attractive. The information about each civilization added some depth. I played it over and over and even now occasionally return to it. Well worth the money.

Build-a-lot 4: Power Source
 – 

consistently entertaining

This is a solid time management game. One of the best features is that when you replay a level, although the goals remain the same, the buildings are on different lots so the strategy can differ. Added a nice dimension. Some levels are challenging, but none of them proved impossible. A keeper.

Cake Mania 3
 – 

ditto on "good but too hard"

Reasonably entertaining, but after playing one level over and over without making enough money to progress (after easily reaching the goals on every other level I played), I punted. Not worth the frustration, when enjoyable games abound.

Mac Games For Japan Relief Bundle
 – 

Tremendous value and guilt-free!

Kudos to macgamestore for assembling such an attractive bundle. They are providing true value to their customers and raising money for badly needed relief. Even though a couple of these games are duplicates for me, many are games I've been wanting. Now I have a great reason to buy them today. I'm taking it *and* I can feel good about it. Macgamestore, nicely done!

My Kingdom for the Princess II
 – 

fun!

I really enjoyed this game. Some of the levels were quite challenging. The tasks had to be performed in a particular sequence or you would not expand your castle! It was fun figuring out the tough ones. I eventually earned my rainbow. I thought the castle on the first version was prettier. This one was too angular for my taste, but that aesthetic did not affect my pleasure in expanding it with each level.

Babylonia
 – 

beautiful graphics

Classic match three with the twist that you restore Babylon and its gardens. You match very pretty, gem-like flowers, and when you've finished a level they spin around in a beautiful burst of color and light. You select the flowers and trees to plant in your garden, then tend them as you play. Could have used even more levels, although they do give you bonus levels at the end so you can continue to play. Visually very appealing - delights the eye!

Mystery Case Files: Prime Suspects
 – 

froze my snow leopard numerous times

annoying to have to reboot, then redo completed puzzles - really detracts from an otherwise fun game.
