Silly

Too easy, almost childish.

Hoyle Casino 2010
 – 

Very Buggy

I owned previous versions, so I was originally excited to see what was new. Well .. the graphics are better, but that's about it. The playing experience is just plain awful.

There are vital game-playing aspects that no longer work in this newer version. For example, in Craps - you can no longer place an "odds" bet - which, frankly, is the most important bet on the table. Several other examples like this.

On top of it, Encore tech support is non-existent. Very disappointed in this purchase.

Mystery Case Files: Madame Fate
 – 

Superb memory enhancement game for 60 & over

I love this game. The challenges that come after getting all the hidden objects can be very daunting, but once you have succeeded it feels very rewarding. I having nothing much praise for this game. I started to play this game to help me with my memory and it has helped more than I can say. Thank you

Escape The Museum 2
 – 

Fun and Exciting

Very nice game. It has a suspense feel to it, and nice surprising scenes and puzzles. Like all of these games, when you finished it, it is done. But I had fun playing it.

Chains
 – 

Classy and simple but...

I love this game. It's so simple, with classy, uncluttered graphics and is somehow quite addictive. Shame it only goes for about 8 or 9 mins before crashing. If they can sort that out, this would be a real favourite.

Mary Kay Andrews: The Fixer Upper
 – 

Ends strangely

This game is not particularly difficult but I found it to be engaging and fun, though very short. If the game had had a longer "second half" I think I would be able to rate it at 4 stars. However, there is no real satisfying conclusion to it, you don't get to see the rooms you've finished once you leave the area of play, you never find out what happens to most of the characters....I would encourage the developers to take this very fine start and really work on the ending!

Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhearst
 – 

return to Ravenhearst

A real value. The puzzles are excellent and are difficult. I needed to use the walkthrough to get finished. The only thing I didn't like was the story. Weird and too depressing.

The Three Musketeers
 – 

I liked the Windows version!

This game is a lot of fun. They do a nice job of turning the book (although I admit to not having read it at all recently) into a game. I really liked being able to own and ride horses as well as equipping weaponry, armor, etc. in traditional RPG manner. I have only played it on Windows but assuming the Mac version is up to the same standard, would recommend it.

Avernum 6
 – 

Another great installment in the excellent series

Jeff Vogel has been creating CRPGs for more than a decade. Avernum VI is the latest installment of the long-running story of young adventurers exploring a unique underground world in crisis. Avernum is where the despotic empire long stuffed those people it did not want or could not control. In past installments one could fight the wars between the Empire and Avernum or the underground races and the struggling people. In Averum VI, the lizardlike Slith race is attacking while at the same time Mushrooms, the staple foodsource of the underworld, is falling to a blight.

Can you stop these twin threats to life underground? You start as simple soldiers and guards amd can either develop into the heroes of Avernum, or die.

Vogel's detailed, logical storylines, gigantic, highly detailed world and challenging tactical gameplay shine through and make this a game you can't finish in one sitting, but look forward to returning to play as soon as work, school and sleep allow.

Avernum 6
 – 

An excellent and very detailed game

Avernum 6 is an incredibly detailed and in-depth role playing game. You play as a party of four members, which you can customise as you like (all fighters, all spellcasters, or a mix). You have to solve dozens of quests as well as numerous optional side quests.

There is masses of treasure to find all over the extensive game world. The storyline is really unique.

Guns of Icarus
 – 

Pretty Good

Cool game and concept. In my opinion, the hard levels are too hard. I couldn't get through them. It would be nice if there was a little more balance to some of the guns...

Shaman Odyssey - Tropic Adventure
 – 

Beautiful but Disappointing

I was excited to see that the game let me play in full 1920x1200 resolution, and in the hour demo made it seem like each level would be increasingly challenging.

Unfortunately, after purchasing the full game, I saw that the rest of the game, after the tutorial lessons, was extremely repetitive. The levels did not increase in difficulty, and I didn't have to replay a single level to move on. I finished the whole game in about 4 hours, and replay value is virtual nonexistant. You can replay levels to try to get a gold medal on each, but unfortunately, there's absolutely no guidance on how to get a better medal - is it time-based? point-based? - and no indication what kind of progress you're making towards the goal while you're playing.

FATE
 – 

Fate

I love this game, and play it on a mini, and I've had very few problems. The one exception, is that I cannot "map" spells to my "F" keys, or anywhere else. I've got a new Apple keyboard, and I've looked on the web, and in the reviews here, but I don't find any mention of this problem. If anybody has any ideas, I'd appreciate some help. Other than that, I've played more than 35 hours, and I'm at level 44, and getting my butt kicked by the swarm surrounding the "boss". I'd love to be able to use multiple spells, but can't.

Shaman Odyssey - Tropic Adventure
 – 

Good Fun for the price

Quite a complete game, with cute graphics and some very unique potions to mix.

The things you do may be repetitive, but the variations within each activity and the number of levels keep it going.

Wishlist: Expansion set!

Hidden Wonders of the Depths
 – 

I got a little bored

Downloaded this game and only got half way through the second level. The mini games were repetitive and I lost interest. Some might like it, but just not for me. You stay within the same screen the entire time. Not my preference.

Fantastic Farm
 – 

Enjoyable

Very enjoyable. Game play was fast and decent graphics. The whole "magic" doesn't really interfere with the farming which I liked. Good music. You also get to have animals and different machines to turn your crops into food. Try it out!
