Katy and Bob: Way Back Home
Turbo Subs/Pizza memories :)
I love TM games and was missing a good old fashioned TM. Katy and Bob was exactly what I was looking for. Nice visual quality, loads of upgrades to choose from, nice array of customers. Negative are the incoming monkeys, for they were there in the levels where the secondary challenges did not need them to be served. They were just a hindrance and the made the difficulty even in the 'easy' mode rather hard. Loved it, will recommend it to TM fans

The storyline is quite good: Rich dad's two young adult children think that 'son' and 'daughter' is an occupation. So he gets in touch with some organisation that will teach them that a 'career' is something completely different and under false pretences they get lured to a remote island. There they have to work to earn their tickets back home.
So far, so good, but the rest didn't really impress me. I found the gameplay quite awkward. You have to take orders from customers with varying levels of patience, order cocktails from the bar (they take a little time to make), fetch ice creams and cans of pop and I got as far as having to pick a fruit, put it into some juicer (both the juicer and the growing of the fruits take a little time) and light fireworks. The latter you can do once you have collected enough love hearts from happy customers, which you strangely have to pick off the floor. In fact these customers seem to throw everything on the floor: Money, your tips, the hearts...you name it, they don't seem to now how to leave things on their tables. The only good thing about that is that you don't have to click everything off the floor individually, you just have to move the mouse over it to pick it up.
You can buy the usual improvements for you cocktail bar with the money you're making and you can buy some antiques that are supposed to help you getting back home.
I found the gameplay extremely awkward and couldn't get any flow into it, which made it extremely hard to chain the actions. Not being able to pre-prepare any cocktails or other concoctions really didn't help.
A "No" from me, I'm afraid.

My favorite types of games are TM's, i really wanted to like this game....i found it very boring and nothing new!!!!
I played many Tm's so maybe i gotten a bit picky over the years.
repetitive, no charm, very dry and flat!!!

Too Buggy, Fun when it works
I think the game could be fun but it crashes entirely too much. I have never been able to get all the trophies because the game crashes whenever I try to buy the final upgrade. Poor quality ruined a high-potential game. I'm not accustomed to that on the Mac platform.
