Looks like a neat game and have been meaning to give it a whirl for quite a while. Hopefully it's not super difficult to get into.
Until the next time...

It is, basically you can design and run, or just sandbox the Theme Park that your imagination has produced, wander about the park and jump on the rides.  It's extremely versatile and you can even import your own 3D Models.  Quite a sophisticated simulation.

No it's very easy to get into, but like all things, the more effort you put in the more you get out.

On a Mac they call it "Dark Mode", not "Darkside".
It's like a slap which you call "slight reminder" ;-)

Lol, not quite. I use Parallels for mostly coding Windows apps and Bootcamp for native Windows gaming if there is no Mac option.
Until the next time...

I love the graphics of this game... but found it actually boring to play. I preferred Theme Park with the actual objectives to complete.

When was the last time you played it?  More depth has been added with the Challenge Mode and Scenario Editor.
