Sugar Games, the creator of such casual games as Rainbow Web and
Rainbow Web 2, has released Wendy’s Wellness
(, a new, US$19.95 time
management game for Mac OS X (10.3 and higher).

Here’s how the game is described: “The story is set in a big bustling
city, which does not have any wellness centers, so the citizens have
no special place that would help them relax after a hectic workday
and keep fit. You play as Wendy, who decides to start her own chain
of wellness centers, and her uncle, a professional trainer, gives her
help and useful advice. At first you have to deal with basic
equipment and to do all the work yourself – but as the chain of
centers grows and the number of customers increases, Wendy’s wellness
centers become well-equipped, glamorous and popular with the
citizens. You need to use all your management skills to cope with the
great number of customers and to hit the objectives of each level.
But your hard work will be rewarded by the customers’ gratitude and,
of course, by their tips.

“Wendy’s wellness center is visited by different types of customers:
football players, cheerleaders, ballet dancers, gymnasts,
businessmen, fatties and flirty girls. Above all customers there are
icons denoting what they want: warming-up, treadmill exercises,
taking a bath, body massage, doing yoga or tanning. Of course, there
is a line, and the customers are waiting for you to serve them. Some
of them are more patient, others are less. The patience is shown as
hearts above a customer’s head, which disappear one by one as she (or
he) loses his patience. When there are no hearts left, the customer
leaves without paying; so you should be attentive to impatient
customers and serve them quickly and properly. You can also buy a
mini-bar with drinks and aroma oil that makes your customers more
patient and calm.

“You see, running a wellness center is quite challenging, but you are
not alone in the face of difficulties! A coach, a masseuse and a
tanning assistant will be of great help, if you have enough money to
hire them. There are 30 possible equipment upgrades that let you
reduce the service time and increase the capacity of your wellness
centers. As Wendy gains experience, you can use it to gain special
personal upgrades and bonuses (higher speed, extra tips, extra
hearts, treadmill bonus etc.). Learn, practice and achieve success!”

In Wendy’s Wellness, there are 10 centers and 50 levels — five
levels for each location. Besides the main action, you there’s also
VIP-training — 12 additional mini-games, which give extra
opportunity to earn some money.
