Game Tunnel (Sep 09, 2003)
I had a lot of fun trying to get the gold medals in the different courses, but I had the most fun competing for points against other players online. It is one thing to play for fun, but to compete for the top rank really appealed to me. Again, this game is actually a lot of fun even though it is so simple a concept. Shooting an orb at a star doesn't sound too complex, but mix in the other features including power-ups, points, rankings, medals, and different courses that get unlocked, not to mention the networking mode, and this game is a real winner!

Orbz is the kind of game I wish there were more of; it manages to get simplicity down to an art form. Yes, extra facets, like character statistics and additional game modes would be nice, but they're certainly not necessary. Instead, Orbz creates a game experience that's intuitive, fun, and, well, just plain works. Orbz succeeds in catering to the average Joe (or Jane) who just wants to download a game and have it work; fortunately, the hardcore Mac gamers out there can pick it up knowing they'll have fun with it too.

Orbz's simple mechanics, nonviolent play, and cartoonish graphics make it a sure hit for families who want something everyone can play and find challenging.
Inside Mac Games (IMG) (Apr 28, 2003)
Publisher GarageGames and designers 21-6 Productions have managed to put together a fairly entertaining and challenging non-violent computer game that will please players looking for alternatives to the expensive big budged titles saturating the Mac gaming market today. The game's visual and aural polish, its mix of action and strategic gameplay, and the choice of Solo or Online gameplay is sure to please a larger gaming audience ignored by a lot of the titles hitting the shelves today. The variety in gameplay, however, doesn't detract from the fact that the game is essentially another computer golfing game, and will fall flat quite quickly with gamers not interested in the Scottish sport. It's a decent game, however GarageGames' other Mac OS offerings, Marble Blast and ThinkTanks, make for much more appealing games.
