With regards to a previous comment from another reviewer -- the monkey chatter is cute but can get to be a bit much at times, but it's very easy to turn off. In fact, I keep the monkeys quiet and out of site most of the time.
I purchased this CD used from a seller in the Amazon Marketplace and got an excellent deal on it. Sure, it's not new, but the price was right, and the CD plays fine, so I'm very happy!
If you like solitaire and you have a Mac, try Burning Monkey Solitaire 4. You won't be disappointed!
The graphics and audio are very entertaining and make playing Solitaire lots of fun even if the game can't be completed successfully.
The software I got was not the working game, but an upgrade to an existing game (which I do not have!). So I was not able to install it, nor use it. So I returned it. Since then, I keep getting offers to buy it again. I hope someone has investigated the package, so that if you have a complete one, I can buy it.
While the selection of games is OK, the background and sound effects are WAY too busy for my liking. They would appeal to some kids, but not as many adults.
In Free Cell, the cards at the top are way too close together, so it appears as though they are one row. On a PC, you have a separation of your throw away cards and your stacks. This was incredibly difficult at first. The cards are close together because of the graphics background, which includes some bright colors, but way too much detail.
So far, I've been unable to find a way to change the preferences of the games, which is incredibly frustrating. I'd like to play solitaire and be able to go through the deck more than one time before the game ends. Unfortunately, in this version, you only get one shot at it.
I did find a way to get the monkey graphics off, but the background remains and is still distracting. If you leave the monkey graphics on, little jokes pop up as you play games, which can be distracting. There is also a lot of monkey chatter that just comes on in the middle of games. If you have the speakers way up, look out. Also, it does not tell you when you've lost a game, so you could go into infinity if you don't watch it.
I just want really basic games - exactly like you find on a PC - except for a Mac. It should not be this difficult to find.

I like to play a game that is at least winnable. This game does not randomize the deck but rather stacks it hard. I played 20 games and did not win 1 game... Read morePublished on July 2, 2010 by William Bryson
