Whether you're a hardened Mac gaming veteran or just a hard-working stiff who likes to indulge in world domination in between budget proposals, this smart and funny book provides you with everything you need for a carpal tunnel-throbbing good time. Rely on this book to deliver: no-holds-barred reviews that'll have you delving into the games with a cool hand and the heart of a lion; oodles of real live content, including 100 current games and goodies included with the bundled CD-ROM; quasi-scientific ratings of each game that can be used as your personal joy-to-be-had barometer for each product; interviews with the hottest Mac game designers in the industry; and rants and raves where the authors lovingly lash out at each other, They've played way more Mac games than any other two people on earth, and they're not afraid to admit it! From his igloo in Canada, Bart Farkas has been an avid Mac gamer since 1984. Associate Editor of 3 MacSense magazine, Bart has also written several articles for Inside Mac Games magazine involving Macintosh entertainment software. He is currently conference leader of the Inside Games forum on eWorld and is the Macintosh Game Leader on GEnie.
