Warning: Domino Addiction Spreads To Mac App Store This Easter Pembroke Dock, GB  Apr 17, 2011


Pembroke Dock, United Kingdom - Purple Wax Games first experiment in Mac Apps is DEMINO, a devilish domino/solitaire hybrid, previously only infecting iDevices.

DEMINO lures innocent players in with deceptively simple gameplay: just chain the tiles by matching the ends. But don't be fooled, some forward planning is required because only a handful of the tiles are visible. Chain all the tiles to reach the next level and higher scores. Different players are obsessed with different goals, some play for score, some for longest chain, others for highest level - all tracked on the high score table. Afflicted players have been known to suffer sleepless nights trying to figure out better strategies.

"We're really sorry that such an addictive game has now infected the Mac App Store," said Kevin Ayre of Purple Wax Games. "Apple did try to stop it, but a mutated version managed to slip through their rigorous review system." The mutations include different tile sets, high score table and resizable windows not present in previous versions.

What the critics said about DEMINO for iPhone:

"Demino manages to create one of the most addictive iPhone games I've ever played." Robin Parrish, Apple Gazette

"You know you are addicted when you realize that you are spending several seconds going through the possible matches based on the pieces you have available and the possible future moves you will have to make. This change to your thinking pattern is reminiscent of titles such as Columns or Bejeweled, except you're making moves based on a more concentrated challenge." Carl Williams, Video Game Cowboys

Hopefully a cure will be available soon, but until then, heed the advice and steer clear of this app. Even better, make the Mac App Store a quarantine zone this Easter, especially if you value your time. You have been warned!
