MacJoy has announced the release of Alice Greenfingers 2, the next episode in its casual gardening themed series. In the game players decorate a farm, grow crops, buy cattle and conduct business down at the town market. This time Alice must help her uncle Berry restore his aging farm.

The Greenfingers family has long complained that Berry, your lazy uncle, should do something about his decayed farm.

When Berry finally gives in and grabs the shovel, he gets a stiff back and immediately calls for Alice's help.

Gentle and faithful as always, Alice packs her bags and sets off for a new season down at Berry's place.
Alice Greenfingers 2 requires Mac OS X 10.3 or higher and costs $19.95 for the full version. Follow the links below for more information.

New Kivi's Underworld Screenshots
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 2 comments

Soldak Entertainment has released several new screenshots for Kivi's Underworld, the company's upcoming action RPG title. Described as a casual hack and slash game, Kivi allows players to adventure as one of 20 character classes against a variety of dangerous foes.

It all starts after a mining expedition, led by Kivi (a young lumen warrior), ventured into unknown territory, and opened a pathway to a deadly race. Dark elves decimated them. Kivi is the lone survivor, yet no one believes him about the new threat, since dark elves are just a myth. Kivi was there; he saw. The dark elves are real and his people are in great danger. Reluctantly, Kivi realizes that it is up to him.

Playing as Kivi or any of his companions, you leave the safety of the protected, underground cities to rebuild the lost city of Defiance, recruit more lumen to your cause, and defeat this growing dark elf threat, before they destroy your homeland and all of your kind. The fate of the lumen is in your hands. Can you save the lumen people?

Although very easy to learn, mastering Kivi's Underworld is a different matter. With a fast pace, twenty playable characters, tons of powerups, many monsters using unique tactics and skills, numerous deadly traps, and multiple difficulty levels, even an expert player will be challenged.
Head over to the site below to check out the new screenshots.
