Interesting but disappointing.

Aquaria Icon
Surprisingly Incredible
by Frigidman™, USA - Sep 11th 2010

Sometimes a game comes along that really catches you off guard. I wasn't expecting this to be the caliber that it is. I was expecting something simple, and linear. This is far from simple and linear!

After just a few minutes into the game I found it stunning. It may have sprites and static imagery, but its done in a style and fluid movement system that makes it slick and awesome.

The world is massive, I'm barely near the end of what seems to be an endless world. I was half expecting a few areas, some bosses, and be done with it. However I just got into a new section, and now there are branches out everywhere, going to even larger and larger sections. It has these 'fast travel turtles', but I've only found one! So how big is this place?!

The music and sound are smooth and clean. Mesmerizing music that tends to change the further you go into different areas. Its not digitized crud that makes your ears bleed after two minutes. The sound effects are nice, and plentiful. Every different thing in the world has their own unique sounds.

Wanted to mention some other specifics for those interested to know:

- This game does NOT screw up everything else you are running when it changes resolutions! It is built right to handle resolution changes gracefully, which is a HUGE plus to me (cause I have countless apps and windows open all the time).

- The in-game interface is so-so. Klunky in the food and item interface where you have to keep 'paging' through things, instead of simply scroll. However it works for the most part, just a little clumsy. The actual controls of the character are done very well, with different methods for different types of people. The 'singing' pop-menu works wonderfully with the pace of the game too.

- My MacBook Pro is an older 2.4 ghz intel non-unibody model. Has the nvidia 8600M gpu. Runs the game perfectly fluid in widescreen with many other apps running in the background. Running smooth on a laptop makes this game great for trips or even on the side.

I highly recommend this game to all ages, and all types of people. I'm a hard core gamer at heart, but I absolutely enjoy this game.

Echoes of the Past: Royal House of Stone Icon
Echoes of the past : Royal House of Stone
by Bob Downes, England - Sep 8th 2010

Great game! I particularly liked the way that returning to a room that you thought you'd finished with generated more puzzles to help you to proceed. Also the humour involved in finding objects where sometimes you had to discover combinations of objects which then generated animations to reveal them.

Chicago 1930 Icon
Was good but no longer works!
by Dr. Morose, USA - Sep 7th 2010

This game was ok when it worked but I moved to a new mac and now when I try to activate my game it says its no longer valid. How can a paying customer of a legit purchased game play when you receive a notice like this? If you are someone who likes to make sure a game always works when you re-install it without an expiration or error notice this game is not for you.

AquaPark Icon
My review to AquaPark
by Ben Marshall, Australia - Sep 5th 2010

Pretty good gameplay, the unlockable objects for your aquapark make you want to play it more. Nice levels, good colorful graphics, frusterating at times, but overall, I give it 4/5. I hope no one tries to act smart and insult my review in the comments, its my review, not yours.

Supercow Icon
Adorable and fun
by Paulette Taylor, USA - Sep 5th 2010

Graphics are colorful without being too juvenile or too avant-garde. The gameplay is easy for adults to play without developing carpal tunnel syndrome as opposed to other platformers that require the visual acuity and/or quick reflexes of an 10 year old. I also liked the British accents as well.

Secrets of the Dragon Wheel Icon
Gorgeous Graphics
by Peter Flynn, USA - Sep 3rd 2010

This game is good fun, and stunningly beautiful for those who like Oriental (particularly Chinese) things. We're told "to be continued" at the end. Let's hope the next installment is out soon.

Secrets of the Vatican: the Holy Lance Icon
Far too easy
by Myvonne, USA - Sep 3rd 2010

The plot line is interesting, but the hidden objects are easy to find. On top of that, the game is extremely short. I finished the game while playing the demo. There isn't much replay value either.

by Denise Collier, USA - Sep 3rd 2010

I purchased Scrabble Plus after using the demo. The installation has not worked after multiple attempts. Online support notes a PREFERENCES bug that was not communicated before purchase. BUYER BEWARE.

World War 2: Time of Wrath Icon
Not really bad, just frustrating
by R.A. Keller, USA - Sep 1st 2010

This is a great game that is a struggle to play. If Mac gamers long for an MS-DOS game, this is it. The naval orders are so poorly structured that it is a chore; that limits replayability in a WWII game, as Allies are heavily dependent on naval. The crash has not been a problem for me, but for some reason you have to enter the game code every time it launches, and it won't cut and paste from other programs. This could have been another great Panzer General type of game, but it isn't.
This is my first review, and just wanted to vent a bit out of the frustration of this game experience.

Elythril: The Elf Treasure Icon
Cheapish
by Brigid McKenna, Canada - Sep 1st 2010

The graphics are cheap looking and the whole game feels old. The music is terrible. It's the same thing over and over. Monotonous. Boring. Definitely not worth the price.

Harvest: Massive Encounter Icon
It might be a great game...
by Roosterbear, USA - Sep 1st 2010

If it would only stop freezing my computer. I have not managed to play more than 15 minutes without that "you must restart your computer" message; generally I don't make it past five.

4 Elements
by Goud lokke, USA - Aug 31st 2010

I really enjoyed this game in every area. Only the second last game was a bit of an obstacle don't play when you are tired. everything else was perfect. Can't we have more similar ones from the same developer?

Archibald's Adventures Icon
Really fantastic game.
by Steven Travers, USA - Aug 28th 2010

Well done, high polish, clever puzzles, well-done learning curve and challenge curve. If you like platformers, or puzzlers, or lode runner or other classic games, you'll like this. Definitely try it out.

Empress of the Deep: The Darkest Secret Icon
Great Game
by Judy Warren, USA - Aug 26th 2010

This is a great game if you are looking for an easy adventure. The puzzles aren't too hard, and you can skip them if you want to. The hints are very helpful. The only bad thing is that the game is too short and the "mystery" is easily guessed. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous. 'Empress' has some hidden object scenes, but is not overwhelmed by them like a lot of other games are.
