It's been almost a year and a half since Adobe first initiated the Creative Cloud, and about six months since Adobe CC, the subscription (/lease/rent) format for Adobe software, was started. Now, having worked with it since its arrival, I'm seeing the best of it and the worst of it. Truthfully, it is a good thing. And, it's a bad thing. The CC is providing wonderful advantages and removing many opportunities. But the biggest question, is it for YOU? Sorry, not a clue, that's your choice. But let me give you some observations so you can make an educated decision. Like all things in life, you have to weigh the good things and the bad things and determine if the good or the bad outweighs the other.

At some point, the AV Brothers got together and thought of everything they could think of to make images into Puzzles. Then they thought of 10 more things. Then they thought of 10 more things beyond that. The depth of this program is only exceeded by, well, I'm not sure. If you want or need a program that can do this kind of thing, Puzzle Pro v. 2 will satisfy your needs and then some.

I firmly believe that there's nothing wrong with updating classic games. Freeverse themselves have done it quite well, turning the basic gameplay of Time Pilot into the wonderful WingNuts (which has a sequel on the way). With Wingnuts, though, Freeverse added their wit and sense of style to the game, which helped separate it from its influences. With Active Lancer, we get an update and little more.
I've never quite understood that business model. McDonald's uses it; just dump "Mc" in front of anything and it'll sell. McGriddle. McNuggets. McDLT. Freeverse tends to do the same thing, only with "Burning Monkey." Burning Monkey Solitaire. Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab. And now, Burning Monkey Mahjong Solitaire. Thank heavens they aren't reversed, huh? I'd hate to go into McDonald's and order some Burning Monkey Nuggets.
