    Rachel's Retreat (TM)

    Rachel can't seem to find rest and enlightenment anywhere, so she starts her own retreat. With the help of Sven Gali, her new mentor, create a relaxing environment for all.

    Options include a separate slider for music and sound, and there is a full-screen option, as well.

    The first time or two you enter the game, it takes a long time to load, but subsequent entries into the game go faster. The game itself played just fine for me, with no lagging or problems to be seen.

    The game is intuitive and easy to learn, and doesn't really have any difficulty until level 5, where you have new stations and you "grow crystals" (crystals randomly grow on the scene, but you have to click on them before they get too big, or they explode).

    Stations include mud bath, aromatherapy/massage, hot stones, hot tub, etc. They can be upgraded for multi-seating in some cases, and for the single-person stations, you can always hire an assistant (assuming you have the money Wink)

    Between every level is a skippable mini-game where you seat guests to achieve maximum "Nirvana". The mini is played like the online game, RSVP, if you're familiar with it - Place guests next to their desired companion. It starts off very easy, but you only have two character-types to work with. I'm sure it gets much more difficult as more personalities show up at your retreat.

    The game is worth a demo if you like Time Management games. I'd say that this starts out as an easy game, but I can see it getting difficult as you progress. Smile
