Summary: It is great as it was when i first bought it ages ago. That copy won't work as the company seems to have went under. I had bought another version of the game (extreme) and may have to re-buy it also.
Summary: I'm one of those who could not get this to load on my laptop (Toshiba Tecra, XP system), even though a previous Richochet game downloaded just fine. As others have noted, a vague error message then a "missing file" message kept popping up and interrupting the process. I gave this two stars, one for the failed download, and one for superlative and responsive Amazon support to reach a satisfactory outcome.
Summary: The game has problems with Windows 8. Your experts know of these. However, last communication on 16 Aug indicated they need more time to work on the issues. Since that date I have not heard from any Amazon employee. I hope that will change.
Summary: The graphics of this game are captivating, complex, and riveting. The only reason i didn't give it five stars is because I got stuck on a level and couldn't progress, and it made me mad because it was the last level in the whole environment. I like how the theme is summarized in the title of the game level before you start---it's sort of a hint as to how to conquer the level. Graphical Eye Candy!! Fast moving!
