Big fun
by Yasmine Hansen, USA - Mar 14th 2008

This game is one of my favorites. It was almost a little to easy for me to beat...up until the bonus pack!

Rhem 3 Icon
Surprisingly challenging.
by RichardIII, Canada - Mar 14th 2008

This is an excellent game! I have played other Rhem games and it wasn't until this version that I really got into it. This game is a real challenge in my opinion, but not so much so as to make you pull your hair out. It is really fun exploring this rather strange world and then discovering that you can manipulate that world if you are clever enough. I give it top marks for overall and game play, but don't trust my ratings for graphics and sound. I never listen to any music in any of these games, but this one doesn't seem to have any - and what it did have in terms of sounds was precious little. As far as graphics, this game has the usual Mac malady of having two resolutions - full screen and therefore somewhat grainy, or too small. That's it.

Overall - great fun.

ArchMage Icon
Fun, but jerky graphics and too short
by Eduardo Pellegrino, England - Mar 14th 2008

The game is about 2 hours long, and if you've got any sort of arcade game skill you'll beat it first time. The graphics stutter, even on a macbook pro, which is massively more than the suggested system. Overall I'd say this game was worth $10, unfortunately it costs 20.

Eschalon: Book I Icon
Great "old school" game.
by nathaniel York, USA - Mar 5th 2008

For those of you who played Fall Out and enjoy a turn-based strategy game then this is worth the $. Good story and lots of directions to take so you never get stuck for too long.

Game freezes about halfway thru, have to unplug computer
to get out of game. I've downloaded 3 times and it does it every time. Please fix it, I think I'd like the game if I could just play it!!

Azkend Icon
Time Killer
by Marta Conlon, USA - Mar 3rd 2008

Azkend is an uncomplicated but fun game to play. The game play is not all that challenging but I still found it enjoyable. The music with the game is quite lovely and not annoying as some games I have played. I am not sure it is worth the $20 price tag but I am glad I have it on my computer to play when I am bored. The levels are pretty similar and the only challenge is that you get less time as the game goes on to complete each level. The power-ups are average in the game; some are effective in the game some not so much. The storyline of the game could be much more interesting as the ending leaves you 2 choices how to end the game, but after playing twice you realize it ends the same way regardless of what you choose.
Overall, I liked the game though it is not challenging but sometimes you just want something to play and not compete against.

Slow Slow Slow
by teresa Juarez, USA - Mar 3rd 2008

not interesting enough upgrades, poor music & graphics. Also, a glitch in the game causes it to slow down constantly.

The Count of Monte Cristo Icon
Too many bugs!
by Harriet M J Wood, Wales - Mar 3rd 2008

Designers need to learn to spell and to check their creation. Some scenes don't recognise that you have found all the objects; in another the congratulations scroll gets stuck in a loop so you have to force quit, and another won't accept a click to OK. It goes on. This game is not ready for release, urgent attention required.

The Nightshift Code Icon
Not difficult enough
by Deborah Brittain, USA - Mar 3rd 2008

I wish I could find a game that would take me more than a few hours to finish. This was a cute game, but not nearly difficult enough.

by Gene Barrett, USA - Mar 3rd 2008

A wonderful game to play. Good sound, graphics, but constantly crashes. I am running the game with Leopard, don't know if there is an incompatibility problem.

Sveerz Deluxe Icon
Memory Workout
by Rachel Collins, England - Mar 3rd 2008

This is a rather simple but addictive game that can be quite challenging. Word of warning though, the music that accompanies the game is a rather powerful meem and you will find yourself saying or singing red, green, yellow, blue long after you've switched off your monitor.

count of monte cristo
by glenn fujikawa, USA - Mar 3rd 2008

After playing the game for less than an hour, i discovered the game has some bugs. A room with a door to another room is supposed to become visible after finding all the clues, but it doesn't change. I have played this room with several names, will all the same result. One of the other challenges on this game just froze up and i had to just wait until time ran out. I would not recomend.

Azada Icon
Good, but not as great as it could be.
by Cari Bryant Arnold, USA - Mar 3rd 2008

Overall, I had fun playing through the different puzzles. I went ahead and purchased the game after playing through the demo assuming that the puzzles would get significantly harder by the end. However, though most are still enjoyable, the puzzles are generally too easy and more appropriate for a younger crowd. It usually took 2 minutes or less to get through each puzzle, and I breezed through the game in a mere 2 nights of gameplay (without staying up all night to do it).

I enjoyed the room games where the player is required to find and properly use various items found around the room, but found that the hints gave too much away to really make it very challenging to figure out what to do.

If you enjoy challenging puzzles that really make you think, this is probably not the game for you (though the sound and graphics are done quite well.) I remember doing puzzles out of a book when I was a kid, and I think that this game would be really fun to the right 10-12 year old.

Hearts of Iron 2 Icon
Amazing!
by Jameson Van Zetten, USA - Mar 3rd 2008

This game, while not the most graphically advanced, is an epic strategy game. No where else can you go so indepth into EVERY aspect of the nation as in this game. If you're looking for mindless strategy, I suggest you look elsewhere. If you're looking for a game with hours upon hours of playability, this is for you.

Hidden Secrets: The Nightmare Icon
Mixed
by Deborah Van den Beemt, USA - Feb 19th 2008

The story line is an interesting enough twist, but I agree that the mini games are more of a distraction than anything else. Once they are unlocked, though, they are something my kids can play. I got to level 11 on the first pass before becoming a bit bored, but I was having to use the hints a lot, and had to skip the peg mini game. One clue I was supposed to find was in the pitch dark! I'd rather be searching for things I can at least see, than aimlessly clicking around for minutes just to see if what I need is invisible somewhere. I'll try to get through to the end, but I'll be quite frustrated if I get stuck somewhere in spite of mousing over and clicking every darn pixel.

Hidden Secrets: The Nightmare Icon
very enjoyable
by Jennie Morgan, USA - Feb 19th 2008

I enjoyed playing this game very much - the puzzles were engaging and I liked trying to find the clues. Even though it was clear early on who had tried to kill Flora, getting there was entertaining and the puzzles were interesting variations on others I have played. Worthwhile

Penumbra: Overture Icon
Absolutely hopeless
by hazel wemper, Australia - Feb 19th 2008

I downloaded this game and gave up in frustration about 20 minutes later. On my Imac running OS 10.4 the graphics were appalling, the interface frustrating and arbitrary, and because the graphics looked so bad there was no incentive to continue. Download the demo and have a shot, I'd be interested to know if It was just me. I'd rather stab myself in the eye with a fork.

Paradise Pet Salon Icon
Good, but a little tedious..
by MARLA Cardoza, USA - Feb 14th 2008

I liked this game for about a couple of days, but now I don't even want to play it. It is a little tedious and boring. I keep waiting for it to become more challenging. Yeah, you can save up to buy a lot of stores, but they all look the same. Same equipment too, except that you can upgrade it. I wish that this game would have been more fun and I agree about the assistant-big deal. There are some slight quirks on my Mini Mac also, but not so bad as in Polly's, evidently.
