    Wow that's awesome. Checking out the demo because the trailer looks really promising, and it's a native game! Now that's a game worth trying out.

    Downloaded the demo immediately. Will buy the whole version later. It came out much faster than I expected :)

    Hi guys how did you open the demo?
    I downloaded it but have no idea on how to open it. It just opens a dialogue window that requires authorization.

    BTW great game, I already did the full 200 points on Xbox 360, now I want to try it out on my Mac.

    :) sorry for the dumb question, I was using 1024 x 640 which cut down the window...

    Thanks a lot!

    I got this game for the 360 a while back and it's great. Not "woah game of the year" but definitely something new to play. Definitely give the demo a shot, especially if you like puzzle games.

    does not look all that great....Apple pushed the new unibodys
    as the "mobile gamer laptop" Games have been lackluster thus far
    imo...only a few bright spots but overall new games release for the
    mac have been hit or miss I like Flatout 2,COD4,Tomb raider Anniversary,
    and the shaun white games looks decent......

    Other than that a complete let down.....Itouch/Iphone games seem
    to get more focus. I should not have to use crossover or whatever
    to play GOOD games on my mac.

    You are quite wrong. It looks great, and is great.

    I picked it up when it was the XBox Live Deal of the Week. I found it to be pretty bland, myself. Decent enough puzzle game, but not really worth the hype.

    Um, no. You may be confused because it doesn't have 3D graphics with explosions. Fortunately, it's not necessary to have 3D graphics with explosions to look great.

    It's a fun little game, but highly overrated. I have to admit it kind of annoys me because it's an oft-cited example from proponents of the trendy "gaming as art" movement. The description says "Explore the human condition," which really just means there are pretentious text interludes between the worlds. In truth, it's just a cool puzzle game where you can reverse time.

    This game looks somewhat cool and a bit dull...

    Agreed. What is with MacRumors lately?

    All the other sites are capable of pumping out tons of news on a variety of things (we're close to WWDC! Do something!) and we either get few, none or days-late news-stories.

    What's with you lately Arn?

    I like indie games (work in the 'industry' myself) and I love me some inventive platformers but this, meh. I wasn't keen on it. I can see why people would like it though but the gameplay didn't stick with me at all.

    Even after all these years I still say the most fun, most balanced and all round best puzzle platformer is Donkey Kong on the Gameboy.

    The graphics are fantastic! It's not 3D but the art is stunning. If you're calling all 2D games Mario and Donkey Kong rehashes, I can't reason with you, but as for the graphics being on par with NES/SNES games, ahem...

    SNES

    Braid

    Also the gameplay is some of the most satisfying I've experienced in years. I cannot recommend this game enough.

    Wow, a Windows port that doesn't require an Intel Mac to run! Fascinating. I'll have to seriously consider getting this, I've heard great things about this game.

    Yeah really. I might be wrong but I've had this game installed for quite a while. I can't really see the appeal and I personally like World of Goo much better. But hey to each his/her own ...

    Great game. The graphics are really nice, I like the detail.

    I downloaded the demo and finished the first world. Very cool. I'm going to finish the demo, and if I'm still into it, I'll buy the full version.

    I love these games.....
