Fight your way to stardom doing everything you can

Be sneaky, backstab, schmooze, and love the right people in Stardom: The A-List.

Stardom: The A-List is a game about clawing your way to the top in Hollywood almost any way you can. You can lie, fight, cheat, and schmooze your way through a list of accomplishments to become a star. Stardom: The A-List is easy to install if you have Mac OS X 10.7 or later. This is a free download, but there are "star packs" with upgrades for sale through the App Store.

The graphics in Stardom: The A-List are good; cartoonish, but effective at conveying the storyline. As part of your road to stardom you need to dress the right way, meet the right people, work on a few sets and get good reviews and fans, and date (and dump) the right people. Schmooze in the right clubs and with the right people, and doors open. Get in a fight with the wrong person and the doors close. Navigating the process is not so much about talent as doing the politically right thing in Stardom: The A-List. The gameplay is interestingly different, and it does tend to entertain and amuse as you work your way through. It's also addictive, and there is good replay potential.

Stardom: The A-List is a different type of game than we usually encounter, but it works well and is both fun and interesting. While to really succeed in the game you need to buy cash and star power at the store, which can get expensive, most people will have fun with the free version.
