The number of available free games makes finding entertaining ones a hit-or-miss endeavor. With Bipolar for Mac, users can navigate through seemingly traditional levels, but with unique and entertaining movements using the power of magnets.
Available as freeware via the Mac App Store, Bipolar for Mac downloads and installs smoothly. Startup is easy and occurs with a simple click on the dock icon where the game appears after installation. No support exists for the game and there are no instructions, although the classic arcade style of the initial menu is easy to navigate. The keyboard controls the game and easily moves between the highlighted text for selecting options and starting the game. The interface and text are very basic without much graphical refinement. The gameplay, which required some experimenting with the controls, is challenging. The initial levels, while easy, give the user the opportunity to better master the basic strategy. With 50 levels of increasing difficulty, the game could occupy the user's time for hours. While the game itself proved entertaining, the graphics, sound effects, and music needed refinement. Since the game was available as freeware, none of these shortcomings were a disappointment.
For those looking to pass the time with a free and simple game, Bipolar for Mac is a challenging and fun option with unique gameplay.
