|Serpent of Isis – The developers of the beautiful tile game for Mac, Venice Mystery, released a second title that combines an intriguing mystery, hidden objects, challenging mini games and a little adventure gaming thrown into the mix. In Serpent of Isis, you have a primary obsession: finding a rare Egyptian artifact that has been missing for a long, long time. You’ve spent nearly your entire life dedicated to locating the Serpent of Isis. One day, you receive an anonymous letter disclosing important information: Five robbers have stolen the artifact and have just boarded the Palu Express train. You’ve got to get on board the train to recover pieces of the artifact from each of the five thieves before the train reaches its final destination in London. Search for clues in the train and during stopovers in Paris, Budapest and Vienna – that implicate each of the suspects, to help you locate the pieces. Download it|
|Smashing Tennis – Smashing Tennis takes inspiration from arcade games and focuses on the real sport of tennis, ideal for novices as well as experts, who’ve been looking for a straight-up game of 2D Mac tennis, tournaments and all. After some bit of practice (think like the days of requisite skillful arcade gaming – see controls here), players are able to hit, serve, smash and dink the ball where ever they want, thanks to realistic physics. Players will also be able to dive if they hit the ball while being slightly away from it. NOTE: Kids and adults with less than polished gaming skills are recommended to begin in Easy Mode (press F6). Spoiler Alert! Find an Easter egg and your player will automatically play through the tournament unassisted. But will your player win? Download it |
|Laser Dolphin – Mashing up Flipper, arcade gaming and strangely, The Day of the Dolphin, Laser Dolphin is a unique blend of speed, agility, and firepower. Laser Dolphin is no ordinary dolphin. Being the only one capable of rescuing the Prime Minister he’ll encounter Missile Fish, TNT Turtles, Robo Sharks, and more. Download it |
|Fantastic Farm – The Fantastic Farm isn’t just your run-of-the-mill farm. You see, it’s managed by Maggie, a recent alumnus from the School of Magic, so her work style and ethic are a far cry from those on an ordinary farm. Thank goodness she can step up the pace there because an evil businessman is trying to smush the farm like a bug. Why can’t she just put a spell on him or turn him into a monkey? Anyway, in this time management/sim game, help Maggie raise animals, grow plants, and run magical machines to produce sweaters, pies, ice creams and more. Fantastic Farm features more than 150 levels, 5 games modes, 6 different crops, 3 animals and 4 machines. Download it|
