8:24 AM | Andy Largent | 2 comments

Pangea Software, long-time maker of Mac-only games, has released their latest creation for Mac OS X, Enigmo 2. This 3D sequel to their hit strategy puzzler Enigmo requires players to successfully guide streams of water, lazers or plasma to the goal using only simple redirecting devices.

The game features 50 levels and also comes with its own level editor. Along with the game's release, Pangea has announced a contest to create the best level, with the winner receiving an iPod Video.

Enigmo 2's minimum system requirements are finalized here:

• 800mhz G4 or any Intel Mac. Will NOT run on older Macs with a G3 processor.
• 256MB RAM and 32MB VRAM
• Mac OS 10.3.9 or later.
• QuickTime 7
• OpenAL (Included with Mac OS 10.4, but for MacOS 10.3.9 it must be downloaded & installed by clicking this link).
For more information on the game, be sure to read through IMG's preview. You can download a 30MB demo now from Macgamefiles as well. The full registered game is $30 and can be purchased online.

Macgamestore: Enigmo 2, Bejeweled 2, & More Available
3:22 PM | IMG News has a few new Mac games available as digital downloads including Enigmo 2, Bejeweled 2, and Zuma Deluxe.

Enigmo 2 is a 3D puzzle game where you construct mechanisms to direct lasers, plasma, and water to toggle switches, deactivate force-fields, and eventually get them to their final destination. The original Enigmo was possibly the most unique game that Pangea Software has ever created, and Enigmo 2 takes the concept to a whole new level with much more complex environments and all-new devices. Enigmo 2 is available for $29.95.

Adapted from its predecessor, Bejeweled 2 features four unique ways to play. Solve handcrafted brain teasers in puzzle mode while up against the clock or kick back, relax and enjoy endless mode. With awe-inspiring planetary backdrops, explosive new gems and dazzling special effects, Bejeweled 2 is more wildly addictive than ever before! Bejeweled 2 is available for $19.99.

In Zuma Deluxe, you control the stone frog idol of the ancient Zuma in this thrilling action puzzler. Fire balls to make sets of three, but don't let them reach the golden skull or you're history! Zuma Deluxe is available for $19.99.

Minions of Mirth Reviewed
8:24 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Game Plasma recently reviewed Prairie Games' Minions of Mirth. MoM is a role playing game which allows for single player adventures as well as the opportunity to join a group of players online. The game offers a large variety of races, classes, and monster types to keep RPG fans happy. Game Plasma gave Minions of Mirth 7.8 out of 10.

From the review:

For whatever odd reason, there are thousands upon thousands of people around the world who want to make themselves a character and run about an imaginary world slashing opponents and occasionally stopping to make better equipment. Since Minions of Mirth is tailored for these types of people, it does a terrific job of enveloping you into the game and entertaining you. There are multiple realms to keep the fun going, and you can always team up with others to create an alliance of up to 36 if you decide that solo-playing just isn't as much fun as it used to be. You are able to set the spawn rate of monsters in single player to whatever you would like, if you want to clear out a dungeon quickly or spend a few hours there leveling up. The game has an almost unlimited replay value as you can always try different classes, different races, and different servers.
