Maybe if Betty lost clothes the better you did in the game it'd be a little more entertaining ;)

I really enjoyed BBBar - until I bought it, then I was a little disappointed. I don't mind the repetitive play, it does help stay in sync with the game, but I was hoping for different reactions of the patrons, and locations with just a bit more to them...My biggest challenge is trying to get on the darn site to post my high score, which will never happen as I'm playing on a laptop and my buttons are a little touchy. lol.

Betty needs to go OpenGL. And this game needs to rise above the gaming level of Nintendo Game'n'Watch. 'nuff said

About the gameplay, I respect your personal opinion; unfortunately, it's impossible to design a game that *everybody* likes. A LOT of people loves the game just the way it is, judging by the popularity of our high score table at http://www.MysteryStudio.com/bbb_highscore.php

About going OpenGL... why? It's a technical decision that shouldn't affect how the game plays at all. We could add some fancy particle effects, sure, but we'd also be raising the hardware bar. Since particle effects aren't especially important in this kind of game (compared with, say, a vertical shooter), we didn't feel that tradeof would benefit us.

This is an engaging game, my criticism of it is that after paying the price for the full version, I was disappointed because the levels that follow are extremely similar to the level allowed in the free demo. The only thing that changes is the background, the game play is exact, doesn't get more challenging... the configuration of the bar doesn't even change.

Had I known this, I probably would've just played the demo over and over again for free.... I'd seriously consider this before paying the purchase price.

Thanks for your comments!

Changing or not the scene layouts is one of many design decisions we had to take; I don't claim that ours was THE right decision, because it's a matter of opinion, so all I can do is offer our motivations.

The point is that Betty's Beer Bar tries to induce what players call "getting into the zone" - it's when the game gets so fast, your mind starts playing almost unconsciously. You have surely experienced this when playing Tetris - the game becomes faster and faster until you don't *think* your moves.

In order to achieve this, however, we had to make some decisions about features we felt slowed down the game; for example, at first we had a washing machine which took a couple of seconds to clean glasses, but it stopped the game flow. Changing bar layouts between levels had the same effect - in a way, you had to "re-learn" the game.

The full version has many other differences with the demo version, however; including unlimited play, more characters, new play modes, the ability to post in the online high score table,...

Again, thanks for your comments!

Fun game, reminds me of a more thorough version of the arcade classic Tapper. Anyway don't let any of the negative posts below (mine included) sway anyone. This game is definately worth trying out for yourself. Than make your own decisions.

Some people have wrongly accused us of giving our own game a 5 star review. The 5 star review is authentic and wasn't posted by us.

An admin of MacUpdate has confirmed that our IP address and the poster's IP address "are not even remotely close, neither geographically nor numerically". See the post below, as a reply to one of these comments.

Please don't give us a bad name without having any kind of proof!
