Fish Tycoon Icon
An All Time Fave
by Madeline Respes, USA - Mar 14th 2009

Back when I had a Palm Tungsten T3, I played this game religiously. It was one of the best simulators; bar none. I hadnt thought about this game any more after having won everything- so seeing it here sure breaks back a lot of fun memories.

I don't know how it plays on the Mac so that means I'll have to either buy it or play with the demo.

Women's Murder Club: Death In Scarlet Icon
Very Good Game
by Madeline Respes, USA - Mar 14th 2009

There were a few times I couldnt figure out a sequence, but a lot of diligence paid off. I was very pleased with this game. It only goes to 9 levels or investigations. Once you get the hang of game play, you can literally fly right through each level.

More than likely I'll play this again.

Mahjong Forests Icon
Great for the whole family
by Laurie Graulich, USA - Mar 14th 2009

This was my first purchase at mac game store and I'm so impressed. MahJong Forest is the perfect stress reliever after a busy day. I love mahjong, and this game has the most beautiful and interesting tiles I've seen. My husband and daughter are now also addicted.

Chocolatier 3: Decadence by Design Icon
Great new features!
by Celeste Christie, USA - Mar 14th 2009

I've played all of the previous chocolatier games, but this is the best one yet! I love the re-design of the Chocolate Lab, because now you can make up whatever you want and sell it! I loved designing the chocolates' colors and shapes, it would be great if there were a few more designs to choose from. This was my favorite part of the game, and it would be fun if you could make up even more chocolates. As with the previous games, the more ingredients, ports, and quests, the more fun, and there's a lot of new things here to enjoy!

There are other improvements here that make the game easier to manage and more fun as well, especially the ability to take on multiple quests at a time and the quest window to manage them. The "telegraph" ability you get later in the game that allows you to change what a factory is producing from any port is also great, though I don't remember if that was in the last installment. I enjoyed filling special orders, and it helped to fill in parts where there were fewer quests to do. As always, the graphics were beautiful and made me crave chocolate.

Things that could be improved on:

The back story was a little weak, and sometimes there weren't many quests to do.

I missed being able to make your own sign. That was fun.

Jade Empire: Special Edition Icon
Straight-up great
by David Allen, USA - Mar 12th 2009

Probably the most fun game I've ever gotten from this site. The story, characters, art, and action are all wonderful. I found myself playing this game over and over again.

Eschalon: Book I Icon
Great turn-based RPG
by Michala Chitwood, USA - Mar 12th 2009

I was worried by the seemingly simple graphics in the screenshots, but I downloaded the demo, anyway. It ran out far too fast and I immediately bought the game. I loved it! The turn-based aspect gives you time to strategize. Complicated maps make adventuring interesting. The variety of bad guys makes battles more complicated. The plot was interesting and the side quests added much to the game play. It's no Neverwinter Nights or Warcraft, but I strongly recommend it.

Chocolatier 3: Decadence by Design Icon
Chocolatier keeps getting better and better!
by Marleen Vente, Netherlands - Mar 11th 2009

This is the fourth Chocolatier game I've played (including The Great Chocolate Chase by the same makers, though with a different type of gameplay) and I must say it's only getting better and better: the addition of coffees is a great one to shake things up while being able to comepletely create your own chocolates makes this game the best in the series to me. So far that is, 'cause already I can't wait to see what they come up next!

World of Goo Icon
Brilliant
by Brandon Dilmore, USA - Mar 8th 2009

I wish there were more games on the market today with this caliber of simple-yet-compelling gameplay. Absolutely engaging from beginning to end. And one of the most distinctly stylish visual presentations I've ever seen in a game.

A must-buy.

Chocolatier 3: Decadence by Design Icon
This is the one!
by Steve Fenwick, USA - Mar 7th 2009

After the horrible disappointment known as "The Great Chocolate Chase", comes this, the third great chapter in the Chocolatier saga. All the great action of the chocolate factories, the search story, and the custom chocolate recipes are here.

Championship Manager 2008 Icon
Awesome
by John McGuinness, USA - Mar 7th 2009

Great simulation of the entire soccer genre. If you are into just the playing part, not so good. But, if you are looking for a game that allows you to manage and run a team and country, there is no better game out these. You set training, trades, lineups, substitutions, tactics, etc. Also has a very awesome web site with lots of forums. Highly recommneded!!!

Around the World in 80 Days Icon
I was bored with the story
by Kimberly Kanter, USA - Mar 6th 2009

Hey. I admit it. I got bored with the storyline behind this game. I didn't want to read, I wanted to solve puzzles. It was too much like Sherlock Holmes.

Very Fun
by Katie Collins, USA - Mar 6th 2009

This game is very fun and very addicting. I haven't liked playing Chocolatier games in the past, but this one is great. Similar to Tradewinds, but more user friendly!

Hell's Kitchen Icon
FRENZY!
by Jeanne Dower, USA - Mar 6th 2009

Frenzy is the only word that comes to mind. You don't learn anything about cooking except the recipes at the end which you could get anytime. It's just hectic rushing and doesn't take any brains or skill....just one fast finger!

Mini Games are the best part
by K.Baillie, Canada - Mar 6th 2009

I would have rated this game good on the mini games alone and if that if your favourite part, then it is a very good game. I esp. liked the slider puzzles. The story itself is rather weak and the hint system is not great. If you prefer a good story, good hidden objects this game will be average for you. But if you love logic puzzles and mini games such as in AZADA then you will love this game.

Jewel Match 2 Icon
same ol same ol
by K.Baillie, Canada - Mar 6th 2009

I agree with Miriam. It is good for a match 3 but been there done that a hundred times. There is nothing new and it gets very boring after awhile. They do it well but how much of the same thing can you do? Ever since I played The Ancient Quest of Saqqarah (by far the best out there) I just can't get into the same routine of the standard match 3. The names have been changed but the games are the very same.

Entertaining
by K.Baillie, Canada - Mar 6th 2009

If you like pirates then this game is a must. The graphics are a wee bit outdated but the story is fun and the puzzlese actually make sense. If you liked Myst you will like this game although it is easier. It is of a medium difficulty and a great pirate story. The whole key here is whether you like the swashbuckling pirate genre and if you do, it is great fun! They seem to have an obsession with "knot tying" in their puzzles lol

Hacker Evolution Untold Icon
Uplink+
by Gregory Holden, USA - Mar 3rd 2009

Really cool concepts. And any UNIX/Linux users who have played Uplink from Introversion will really appreciate the command line interface. NOTE: TAB will complete commands, filenames, and known hostnames. If you don't know it then you will quickly lose patience writing out each.

There are a couple UI issues, but nothing that kills it. Having a cinema display means each window is pushed out to each corner (feel sorry for me and my cinema display). Resizable/Movable windows would have remedied this problem as well as improved the UI and immersion.

The game is level based, but the story is intriguing and there is a lot of exploration potential if you investigate a bit. It will be a steep learning curve for non-technical people, but those who stick with it might learn something and will enjoy themselves.
