Editors' reviewThis entertaining little strategy game tests your business acumen by challenging you to run a profitable, thriving lemonade stand. For a mobile game, Lemonade Inc.'s colorful graphics are quite pleasing, though you'll need to turn your Pocket PC on its side to play. Each day, you need to buy the proper amount of ice, lemons, sugar, and cups to make sure you don't run out of lemonade. Once your business gets on its feet, you can buy more expensive equipment, switch your stand to a more trafficked location, and take out advertisments. Paying attention to the news alerts and the weather can help you make smart business decisions. The game's feature set couldn't be called massive, but you can at least disable the sound and music, as well as view the temperature in Celsius instead of Fahrenheit. You will have to deal with a few nag screens when you shut down Lemonade Inc., but the game is otherwise free. Pocket PC owners who enjoy strategy games will find this title makes a good way to kill the idle moments.
