This is the third game in the Turbo series, and so far, this is the best. Rebecca and Robert are on their way to the stars when Auntie Rhonda sets them up with a shop on the first civilian spaceship tour. Rebecca uses this opportunity to bring high-tech food prep techniques and traditional South of the Border cuisine together in simulated gravity. There is also a chink in their plans that I failed to mentioned, and this has been going on since the first game. Some industrial spies have been attempting to sabotage their success throughout the series. Apparently, someone is fearful of the competition, but I did not get far enough into the game to find our who it is.

Spa Mania 2

This fun time management game is a little different from its original. Jade has moved on to open a chain of earth-friendly spas, but there are reports of supplies and cash going missing. it seems Madame Dubois has hired some industrial spies, and they are lurking in Jade’s spas as customers. Jade is determined to find them and bring her corporate enemy down. We join Jade on a trek across the country in various hotspots and hot springs to find the spies.

Spa Mania 2 is not quite as user-friendly as its original. When doing massages, instead of simply bringing the customer to the table, now we have to focus on the spot that needs most attention, or we lose points. The customers are not quite as patient as before, either. While we do buy upgrades for the spas, there are no mini-games to boost our cashflow. This game is just not quite as fun as first one, but still, it has its moments. This seems to be a fun series, though. Maybe in the near future the dev team will come up with another sequel that will combine the first two games together in some manner. That is something certainly to look forward to.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

One of the best children’s stories of the 20th century gets new life in this 21st century remake. The characters are better defined, given more personality, and updated for a brand new audience. Johnny Depp plays the bizarre genius chocolatier, Willy Wonka, who sends the world into a frenzy after closing his factory gates for a period of years. Charlie Bucket (Freddie Highmore) is a very poor kid who enjoys chocolate as a savory treat, and knows how to make it last. This is a very good thing, because he only gets one bar of chocolate a year, on his birthday. Even though Charlie is poor, he has a very loving, big family, so he never really misses all the luxuries he could have.

In a whirlwind marketing scheme, Willy Wonka sends out five golden tickets in random chocolate bars. Whomever finds the tickets gets to take a guided tour of the factory with Willy Wonka, and they also get a lifetime supply of chocolates. What kid would not want that? Charlie is dreaming big these days, thanks to the stories told to him by Grandpa Joe, whom was a very loyal employee of Wonka’s before the gates were closed due to industrial spies.
