In a vain cry for common sense, could we keep DL names the same as their contents?

Ho5? Is this the Pick a Prostitute game, I've been hearing so much about?

The game itself is quite addictive but the graphics got a tacky and unnecessary makeover from the Classic original.

I can't say how many wonderful hours I have spent battling species only differentiated from myself by temperature an gravity.

I have the older version, not sure it is worth $30 to get PCish graphics and a few more spaceships I can find no use for.

Now a few wormholes and 5th dimension portals, might convince me.

Still works under Leopard, still fun, but still overpriced at $30 per license. This makes a multiplayer game prohibitively expensive. Make it $5 or $10, and you might get some life out of it again.

Great classic Mac strategy game. Total ripoff at this price though. This is more expensive than Warcraft III... put the two side by side and you do NOT get what you pay for with this. I'd buy it at $15-$20.

This game is fantastic. Having played it through almost all of its builds, I can say that it stays true to it's original addictive experience while getting better with each incarnation.
Grousing because you can't find pirated serial number is a little childish. If you like the game, pay for it.
I can attest that even the demo mode is quite a thrill and being able to unlock the higher levels of your attribues is very gratifying.
My only gripe is that the sound effects get quite annoying after a few hours.
Still, you can get extremely engrossed in this one very quickly and that's always good.

Complete waste of money. Old version 4.0.5 was perfect, the new release isn't worth 10 bucks. More like 3.99. Agree with other posters

Simple but very elegant strategy game. The game designers clearly put their priority on gameplay (at the expense of features that would increase the playing time or graphics that would clutter the screen); the game is easy to use and well-balanced. It takes a while to get accustomed to the graphics, but once you do they're reasonably informative. The easy network play is also a plus.

good game, but gets easy quickly-- perhaps more ability to change the settings (such as increasing or decreasing the metal availability) and maybe even some responsability for the people on your plants (happy? not happy? how to fix it?!?!?) would make it more long-term-play-able... still, very good. glad I have it but look forward to updates.

What a hideous rendition of a classic Mac game. My mouth was watering when I heard that Ho 5 was out. Now my stomach is turning. Sheesh, who designed the new version and said "wow that's good"? because they should be shot. I'll stick with Ho 4.0, pound for pound, one of the best around.

Beermouse, it's not a shoot-em-up, it's a turn-based strategy game, for crying out loud! Like chess, with a sense of humor, resource management, technology advancement, unit improvements, etc. etc. I've played it off and on since version 2, more hours than I care to admit. Can't wait to see what they've done in this update!
