DeepTrouble 2

One of the best games!

Love this game. I bought it years ago when it was first released. I actually got a new Mac to be able to play it, I loved it that much. I have only excellent things to say about prodyct support. Anytime I have had an issye the developer has gotten right back. I would encourge the first reviewer to try again. His first concern may not have reached the support people. It is worth pursuing!

An Outstanding Game!

I have to agree with Randall, this is one amazing game. I played it until my son came along and got addicted to it as well.

Max & The Magic Marker
 – 

Its amazing, the imagination.

Sometimes, out of the blue a game comes along and it is simply fun, and awesome. This game has to go in with a small list of keepers for me.

The graphics are extremely well done, if you have the hardware to click on maximum (or even second best is still incredible). The fluidity of movement, the artistic sketch like drawings which are rendered, and even the little things like ambiance make the graphics a treat to see. The use of physics, with hand drawings, and action, was surprising actually. Good one, as your drawings have weight, and can be pushed around!

Audio is ok, has a silly pop n rock musical score in most places, much as you would think for a child's mind drawing silly things. Other sound effects are clear, clean, well done for the situations and moments. Certainly not thrown-together.

In fact, nothing about this game seems like it is thrown together. A lot of thought and planning went into making very unique.

I wont ramble on about everything, just wanted to make a mention that this game is pretty darn cute and certainly enjoyable!

Mystery Case Files: Madame Fate

weirdest puzzles ever

This is not only a fun search game, but it has the weirdest and most fun puzzels at the end of each level that i've ever seen! And so many levels too. Never boring, this one!

Shutter Island
 – 

Very disappointing & not worth $20

First, I heard that this game crashes every time on every Mac when played in windowed mode. I didn't know this when I downloaded the trial, so can't verify. This seems like a very hastily thrown together game, probably so it would come out around the same time as the movie. The graphics of the outside, non-game-play areas, are very nice, but the graphics of the game-play areas are just okay. But worst of all, the items to find seem "pasted" on and seem to "jump out" at you. The only ways they can make it seem difficult to find these pasted-on items is by making the scenes really dark, by having flashing "electricity" and by superimposing "migraine headache" effects onto the screen. The one mini game I played was a math game and way too easy; a third grader could have done it. One of the things you do is collect items and when they're all collected you click on a hot spot which opens up with three or four circles into which you must laboriously move your collected items, one by one by one. There is absolutely no challenge in this, just boring click and drag. This gets you some information or opens another scene.

I recommend you not buy this game at least until the price comes down.

Not a bad game. However it is easy and short. Would have liked more of a challenge and more levels.

End or near end of game is confusing and cannot be navigated. Instructions incomplete on this aspect. Disappointing

Fun game. Challenging. Love courtroom scene. More variety in script would be more fun and challenging. Like it!

Shutter Island
 – 

Very disappointing

Though I wouldn't categorise the game, in general, as 'bad', in terms of what it offers in the way of game difficulty, it comes very close. Basically, once you've found the hidden objects (which isn't too difficult) it does everything for you bar 5 or 6 mini-games, and even these are incredibly easy. I can't remember how long it took but between 2 to 4 hours or thereabouts. For the price, I was very disappointed with this plus the content and ending.

I understand it's a 'taster' for the movie so it couldn't give the whole plot away but nevertheless I think the customer deserved more than was given. With such a cliffhanger and the feeling at the end of 'what's actually going on here?', even the customary 'To Be Continued' would have been something. It's clear that this was intended to incite enough interest to get the player to go see the movie rather than succeed as a game. It's had the reverse effect on me.

I don't normally write reviews and if this game had cost $9:95 I wouldn't have bothered, but at almost $20 I felt compelled to as, bottom line, the game just isn't worth that much money!

Too short

Not worth your money. After playing the free demo you have about half an hour of playing left.

Avernum 6
 – 

Another great game from Spiderweb

This is the last installment of the long running Avernum saga - Jeff Vogel has created a huge world with hundreds of quests, battles, and intrigue. I've been playing these games for years and love them. Definately worth the price, you get many hours of satisfying play.

Campfire Legends - The Hookman
 – 

Lots of fun, but too short

I found this one more challenging than most - the puzzles were fun and I liked how you had to go to multiple scenes to figure out the hidden object goals. My complaint is that it was way too short (finished in less than 3 hours); that's why I'm not giving it 5 stars.
I'd buy a sequel if it lasted longer!

Insectoid

I don't normally like shooter type games, but this one is a lot of fun. There are only a few keys to remember for actions, so it's not complicated. The graphics are stunning.
