    "I got so bored at work so I looked for games that can be played on Mac for free, and it suggested this Alpine Crawler. The challenges are very challenging that it's making my neurons fire, and I find the game exciting esp whenever I have to go up on the mountainsides"

    "This game OAD reminded me of Age of Empires which is what I got addicted to when I was sooo young. I wanted to know what the game is about so took the chance myself to get the free one for my Mac. I'm still trying to figure out how to survive in the game though since I've just started playing it "

    "The first time I downloaded this game was in 2013 and I didn't really like it. Maybe because I'm a Ragnarok player and was only focusing on one game. So recently I downloaded it again (becoz it's free and I'm using Mac). Then while playing, I realized it's actually an awesome game, and it needed to have more attention!"

    "Got to read the book and watched all the movies and since i'm a fan of J. R. R. Tolkien, I also wanna experience what it's like when you play a game related to The Lord of The Rings. What I like the most is the graphics and that they included some sort of a story-telling. The reason I got introduced to this game is that it's free for Mac so yeah"

    "OKay so I was looking for free games for Mac and found Hearthstone which is what my younger brother is playing as well. I got bored and curious so I tried to play the game and for me the downfall is that it takes so much space!! But it's just a simple card game which is what I like honestly since missions are challenging to accomplish."
