Loved this on the Wii. I may hold off for now due to space issues.

Well I bought and played this game on the Mac. But that isn't going to stop me from buying this game the second it comes out in the US. Out of all the new games out today, this one is my most highly anticipated.

I got this when it came out on Steam and I'm getting it now. It's a masterpiece of fun.

This is one of my favorite games on the Mac! I'm tempted to pick it up again on the iPad.

I've never played it, then again, a game this highly rated on Metacritic needs no introduction.

I prefer the iPad now, to consoles because of the interface.

This game deserves my time and money.

I'm happily buying it based on it's prior reviews.

It seems made for the tactility of touch interface, honestly.

Tiki Towers doesn't even hold a candle to World of Goo

Maybe, but my experience with you is that you generally like the first version of a game so much that you tend to trash anything similar that comes along.

As I recall, you described Toy Mechanic as an Epic Fail compared to Cogs. IMO, both were very good.

If this is as good as TIki Towers, that will be very good indeed.

In both cases he is spot on both were poor versions of classic games in my opinion too . Which is fine I suppose if they aren't available on the chosen gaming format but when they are why settle for a poor copy .

Well, I can't speak about World of Goo until I get it tonight, but Tiki Towers was a great game that got a lot of free additional content. If World of Goo is as good, I will be very happy.

And as far as I can tell, the biggest difference between Toy Mechanic and Cogs was that it was 60% cheaper. The graphics, controls and gameplay were pretty much the same.

I guess my point is that neither Tiki Towers nor Toy Mechanic were "poor copies" in any demonstrable way. If you hated Toy Mechanic but loved Cogs, then you are bringing something to the table unrelated to the actual game. I defy you to explain how Toy Mechanic was an Epic Fail.

I just don't understand why people need to crap on things just because there are other similar things that came first. Are there no other good match-3 games because Bejeweled came first? Is there no room for two good games in the same genre?
