Yesterday I posted a list about five fun Mac games. Today I have another Mac game you might be interested in, Rotieer. Its a complex puzzle game where you have to rotate the world to get the ball to the goal. It sounds simple, however many times while playing this game, you end up rotating the world and the ball goes flying off the map, only to loose a life and have to start again. Although the concept sounds simple, there are various challenges and problems you encounter to keep your mind at work.
Rotating The World
The controls and concept is simple. You have a small green ball, and a red mark to get the ball to. To get it there you can rotate the world, 90 degrees at a time. Due to this rotation the ball falls down and, hopefully, hits the opposing wall. You can then move the ball to get it in a better position for the next world rotation. When the world rotates to moves between walls and hopefully gets it closer to you goal.
During each chapter, the puzzles get more and more complicated. At certain times you have to collect key cards to unlock the exit, there is also movable and free falling blocks which you have to contend with. Within each game you can also collect stars for extra points, and hearts for extra life. The extra life parts comes in very useful in the latter games. I found the route to the solution simple when you start out, however as you rotate the map, you forget your route and usually have re-work it.
This game is fun. It is more of a challenge than some of the other cheap games you find for the Mac. Although the graphics are 3D, they are not as polished as some other Mac games you find.
This game cost $5.99, which is a little expensive. However if you have tried all of the other games, and want more of a challenge this game might be suitable for yourself. If you have any comments, please leave one using the form below.
