when playing, relax and enjoy the game.

If the game is running slow for you, there is a link on the title screen to a standalone PC/Mac version

Graphics stink

Good plot, and the game is alright, but YOU CAN'T SEE A THING! It needs more contrast.

Absolutely love this game!

This is probably one of the most relaxing yet frustrating games I've ever played.. And that's good! It keeps you going. The artwork and the music are absolutely brilliant and also the idea is very innovative..

This is a typical 5/10 game, amazing!
