Oxeye Games’ latest effort is for Macs only, meaning that PC owners can’t get in on the fun. But for those of you who do own a Mac, The Strategist is a pretty worthwhile game to take a look at. The little in-game animations you see as your troops move across the battlefield or the miniature explosions that pop up as you battle enemy armies aren’t graphically mind-blowing, but they’re neat little touches that help add a bit of flavor to the game. It’s easy to lose yourself in the strategy and fun this game provides, but in the end, The Strategist is different enough from Risk and Dice Wars to be good.
Crazy Eggs is a puzzle game that tests your reflex speed and hand-eye coordination. The goal in your game is to link up dinosaur eggs of the same pattern, and clear all eggs on board within a time limit.

Bubble Frenzy Remix
Writer: Brian Szabelski
Bubble Frenzy Remix is yet another in the many bubble-popping puzzle games that are available. If you’ve ever played Bubble Bobble or Snood, or have even seen those games being played, then you know what to expect: match up three or more of one kind of bubble to clear the screen of everything and keep advancing. Pretty simple, right? Well, Bubble Frenzy Remix adds to that with four different modes (Bubble Puzzle, Endless Wave, Timed Puzzle and Bubble Battle) to try and bring some new challenges to the genre.
It honestly appears as if Bubble Frenzy Remix has only one song, which just loops over and over again. Graphically, the game doesn’t stack up that well against other Bubble Bobble clones and the bubbles themselves lack a true roundness. On top of all of that, there are far too many kinds of bubbles, often resulting in my frustration as I had to find spaces to store them while I waited for the right color bubble to appear. If you’re trying to find a bubble-busting puzzle game, you might be able to do a bit better than what Bubble Frenzy Remix has to offer.
