Supercow

I love this game

This game runs beautifully on my Penryn MacBook Pro (2.6 ghz). The graphics are just stunnng beautiful, detailed backgrounds and 3 or 4-level parallax scrolling. If you like old-style Mario/Sonic-type side-scrolling platform games, ad if your Mac's specs are up to it (seems this game really demands an Intel processor) then you'll really like Supercow.
The difficulty level is "easy" for an experienced gamer in this genre, but the levels are deep, large, and very pretty. A fun game... both I and my 7-year-old love playing it together.

Skip this game

Poor graphics and boring game play made me wish I had just skipped the demo. I had hopes for the mini games but was equally bored. The creator needs to go back and redo the game.

Depths of Peril
 – 

Great game worth the money

This game at first i was skeptical about it. Yet after playing the demo i liked it, so i bought it. It has many of the elements that i have been looking for in RPG since the Baldurs Gate and Icewind Dale Series. Random Loot, Monsters and Class system. Of course I could wish for more and hope they do deliver that. The Strategy part of it is very well too, having to take over other guilds in order to be number one in the village, Yes it gets old after a while. Yet one thing that stands out is the modding you can modify the game to your taste I.E make drops appear more frequent or less, Random town attacks to fend off. I say spend 20 dollars this game will have you coming back for more and more.

Fable: The Lost Chapters
 – 

Amazing

This game was worth every cent period. If you don't have this game and are thinking about buying it- do it. I've had this game for about a week now and keep playing it over and over. I don't think I'll ever get tired of playing it. Your choices and actions directly determine everything. This game is a must have!

Enjoyed it

I really liked a lot of this game. It was not to hard to complete, but still challenging. It was refreshing to find something not full of witchcraft and magic for a change. I will not buy a game with all that stuff in it. This was about super heros and their rivals. I bought it and would let my kids play it.

Super Tile Sudoku
 – 

It's just bad Sudoku

I am a good Sudoku player. I easily solve Expert puzzles in books and magazines and I love the game. So when I report that this version of Sudoku is very badly implemented, I just want to assure you about the quality of my review and the lack of quality of this game. The tiles are essentially multi-colored in an attempt to make them look 3-D. They also have rounded corners and edges which, when they are close to the game borders and the inner grid lines, makes them look like clumps of colors and shapes The font of the numbers themselves give them a rounded "blobby" look which them difficult to read as the board is filled in. And then, to make the visual aspect of the game just a little more challenging, the background color matches the starting game numbers. But the most important complaint of all is the lack of unique solutions. My first game in the free demo download was in the Easy mode and last four numbers were playable in several combinations, ALL of which were correct, but the computer program would only accept one of the versions and marked the others, erroneously I might add, as wrong. Not only does this annoy the regular level player, but a starting level player would easily think that they were at fault, making the game much less fun.

Haunted Hotel

What really dinged my purchasing this was the miserable typos, incorrect grammer, etc., etc. Some new twists, but still a rehash of the previous games, foggy images and utter frustration when the rope was untangled, nothing happened. This needs a major re-haul. And, give Ray Lynch credit for that cyber slice of his music!

Needs work

I think this game has potential. The mini-games were cute and kind of fun, and the hidden object portion was standard. But the story was horrible. The text interludes were WAYYY too long, tedious to read, and were full of typos and text that made no sense. Too irritating to play. If they just rework the story and clean up the text, it would be OK.

Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2005

This is an amazing game, with some annoying exceptions. I am running an Apple GMAC, all aluminum frame, Leapord 10.5+, Intel dual core processing at 3+Ghz. Two Gbytes Ram.
I find that the game gets out of sync with where the gameplayer is, announcers are on previous hole, etc. Some parts of the game , everything goes silent. I picked this over the 2008 version because of the bad porting reviews. So ... no one is going to fix a three year old game after they moved on. Sad ... Tiger's name is on it. EA should do better. The game is good, but could be better after three years of fixes?

Need Better Editors

The hidden objects portion was fairly easy but repetitious and the graphics not bad. The puzzles were a nice break but CAN'T do the word game to save my soul. Is something wrong with my mouse? The text drove me crazy. #1 I want to play a game not read an unneeded story. #2 The typos were too numerous to believe. Didn't like the sound. There was a buzzing that made me think I left something on in my kitchen. I realize these games need some theme but games like Madame Fate and Dream Chronicles work...not these forced attempts. Sorry, save your money.

Jewel Quest III
 – 

Pure fun

I am hooked on this game! Similar to the first. Each level you get to go to a different locale and have the same type of puzzle to beat. Watch that reptile's tongue though (timer) It can retract much too quickly at times. IT is a much longer game than many which is nice. I am only halfway through but determined to finish it. Definitely worth the money in both play and time value. It can even get the blood pressure up and my son laughs when I start talking to the the game.lol............def.worth the money

Blood Ties

I was looking for more

It is an ok game if all you are looking for in a game is H/0. There are no mini games which I find always break things up a little.
Names in the game can refer to more than one object and it was on the short side. The story wasn't nearly as interesting as the title suggests. Like I said if you only want the seek and find and no mini games or deep story, then you may enjoy it. Not the worst game I have played.

Battlestations Midway
 – 

Good Solid Game

It strikes just the right balance between action and strategy!!
It is a unique game and very enjoyable. As you do battle your ships will take damage but you can assign crewmen to different tasks to fix. My one complaint is I found single player campaign to be just a bit too short, but multiplayer is great. It is great fun and easy to switch gears and would have rated it far higher if it was a bit longer.

Battlestations Midway

A LOT OF FUN!

Great game to play, lots of action, not too difficult but not too easy either. Single player campaign is a blast but not long enough. Woul be awesome if it had lasted longer but still lots of action. Multiplayer is good though! Good controls make it easy to switch between functions. Although all the battles in the game are SEA battles there are enough variety in the battles to make each one unique. Great game multiplayer, great game all around, just make single player longer next time. STILL DEF.

worth the money and you wll have a great time playing. I would rate it an 8/10

Mystery In London

My standard

This game has become the standard that I hold other games to. I found some of the puzzles a little too challenging, mostly because of the limited directions and the hints were not very helpful in those puzzles.

Best of the Hidden Object Games

This was the most enjoyable of the hidden object games I've played. Unlike others, it had a quite engaging story guiding you through, and I found it had a very nice mix of challenging puzzles along with more typical object search sessions.

I play these games for relaxation after a hard day at work, so I really liked the fact that there is no time pressure (I can take as long as I like or even stop in the middle and pick it up later), and that the Hints feature allows me to get out of tough spot when I'm tired of racking my brain.

Very nice job. I would like more like this one!

Haunted Hotel

I hesitate to criticize, because I'm unable to create such games. However, the graphics were poorly Photoshopped (the doors looked "pasted" on the walls rather than filling openings, the same items were in every room, and the perspective was mostly off). There was a lot of text between scenes, mostly in extremely poor English. As to gameplay, at times one item was so completely behind another that it was impossible to find without using a hint. I wouldn't recommend this game, but I would recommend that the creator refine his skills before releasing another.

Dream Chronicles 2

I found DC2 to be an improvement over DC1 because (1) the jewels had a purpose; (2) all the annoying text that accompanied finding each jewel was gone; (3) the puzzles were more difficult. A great game for relaxing; the graphics are stunningly gorgeous and the music is lovely. Can't wait for the third installment!

Hidden Secrets: The Nightmare

I didn't mind or have trouble with the mini-games, except for one of the ones where you have to connect the roads. There's a bug, as it's impossible to complete; you have to skip it. I thought the overall story was decent, and the graphics had kind of a comic book creepy feel to them.

Penumbra: Overture

Great game if you have the hardware

I don't know why people are saying the graphics are bad, I thought they were great for a $20 game. Heck, they are great for any dollar game. I'd love to be able to max everything out here, but my Mac Book Pro can't handle it.
