    "I recently installed your MahJong game from Steam and am very pleased so far. I was unhappy when my old Shanghai game stopped working on Windows, and it is great to have an attractive and responsive MahJong game again. One of the Steam reviews said that this is the best MahJong game on Steam and, based on reading reviews of all of them, I agree."

    Dave Henderson, USA

    I have tried 25 or 30 different Mahjong games, but I always come back to your Mahjong game, as it is the best there is. A real work of art. Bakno Games has raised the art of game playing to new heights. Thank you for the quality of your work! It is evident in every piece of software that you produce."
    Wayne Byerly, USA

    “By far the best, funniest, driving game ever. I'm loving it! The only game that doesn't get you all pissed off. Actually relaxing. Nice landscape, and the water is a rush. Awesome cars, paints, and tracks.”
    Vicki K, USA

    “Thank you very much for the superior service you have given. I had long conversations with Apple also but support was evidently not aware of their problem at the time. Again, thanks very much.”
    Darrell Dreyer, USA

    “Thank you for the update. But, most importantly, thank you for your prompt response to my problem. I am sure that I was not the only person contacting you that day. I want you to know how much I appreciate the excellent service.”
    Norma Jones, Canada

    “I was going to miss playing Mahjong on my PC when I changed to Mac. This game has a great selection of tiles, one which is all pictures. Really awesome graphics!. Additionally, I was concerned about a virus on my brand new Mac, but this was completely safe.”
    Linda Bawcom, USA

    “This is the best assortment of mahjong games I have ever come across on the net. There are so many variations and so many levels of expertise a person will never be bored. Thank you.”
    Ann Steinert, USA

    “My wife and I have played Yahtzee together for over 30 years. Either around a campsite with traditional dice and cup or any number of computer versions starting from an original DOS version on a 386. This is probably the best ever, so don’t change anything”
    Michael Parsons, Australia

    “My compliments for Motorbike. I've tested many similar games, but none comes even close. And another compliments to Ivi. I adore his tracks, they are tricky, but fair and absolutely breathtaking.”
    Caroline Jufré-Slotemaker, Switzerland

    “Motorbike is very entertaining, my kids enjoy it more than the likes of say Urban trial, Trial fusion and Extreme trial (bought them all for them so they can have a choice). So all I can say is keep up the good work and a BIG thank you on my part for taking care so well about your customers and developing games that are cross-platforms. In the name of my kids, we are very happy customers.”
    Vincent Garcia, France

    “I wanted to let you all know how much I enjoy playing MacPool. We purchased a game license about 4 years ago. It is bringing back memories of shooting 8 ball when I was growing up. Now that I am not physically able to shoot pool, it gives me a lot of enjoyment to have a good game. Thank you for the improvements to the game and for creating this very enjoyable, relaxing game. Thanks very much.”
    Andrew Lisenby, USA

    “Motorbike is a really awesome game, nice graphics, fine reality and very easy to make stunts. I love it!”
    Jose Rocha, Brazil

    “You have no idea how much MahJong means to my husband and to me. He is 74 years old and the game is helping to keep his mind sharp and active and keep him grounded in today. For this I thank you. You have reached out to touch the lives of some very special people in more ways than you know. It is really for some more than a game it is a rope grounding them to today and their loved ones.”
    Judy Morris, USA

    “Motorbike is a fantastic trials game. This is my kind of bike games, tackling ramps, rocks or anything that is thrown at me. Great bike physics, landscapes, controls, choice of bikes and bikers. Of course there is room for improvement, but so far just great. Motorbike rocks”
    Edgar Perez, USA

    “I've been playing baKno's Billiards on iMacs for about 3 years now—the graphics and the physics are particularly good. Better still is the great email contact I've had with the guys from baKno, prompt, friendly, and helpful.”

    William Naylor-Leyland, UK

    “I just bought your Island Racer game and I love it. I'm really not a gamer type of person, this is the only game I have on my iMac but I really enjoy it, its much better than all those shooting games. I’d like to see some night driving on one of the scenes, but I still love it. Keep up the good work”

Thanks for the updates.”

    David Pollard, United Kingdom

    “Your service is awesome to say the least. I don't have time for more games at present ("productivity" is up at work) but you are #1 on my list once I get to slow down, if that isn't a contradiction in terms. Many thanks from a devoted user and fan.”
    Jeff Kraus, USA

    Bjørn Nake, Denmark

    “I'm 75 years old and always learning new things. When I was in the Army I had to learn to drive fast and off the road. Those skills help me with your Island Racer game as I found my self off the road.”
    Richard Anderson, USA

    “These games are awesome! Straight to the point and BS-clean. Frankly, I feel like wasting my time when other games start showing all sorts of characters, themes and fancy stories I don’t care about. They are just not my type. I am glad I found baKno!”
    Jeanice Roberts, USA

    “I am a disabled person, I can only use one switch with my foot. I use this switch with a on screen scanning keyboard which also allows me to operate the mouse arrow without touching the real mouse. Now the way BIlliards operates by placing the mouse on the white ball and then hold down the button works like a dream! Cheers”
    Steve Knight, United Kingdom

    “The music for your games is quite good. I think your games are worth the cost. The graphics are bright and colorful yet sophisticated. The Mahjong and Gems are just beautiful.”

Take it from a guy who has played about 50 different types of mahjong games on several platforms, (Mac/PC, DS, Wii, PS3, iPhone) and your mahjong game is by far the best I have played so far. It is not gimmicky with power-ups and nonsense like that. It is just straight up mahjong and it is beautiful. So thank you for making a mahjong game I really, really enjoy playing.”
    Richard Patrick, USA

    “I was having some difficulty with Mac Pool and baKno support was both helpful as well as very patient. If something didn't work, he suggested something else. He went out of his way to make several suggestions, and take his time to trade e-mails back and forth in an effort to solve the problem. He wanted to be sure that the game worked as it should.”
    Larry Williams, USA

    Bill Willins, USA

    Alex Oster, USA

    "Island Racer syns jeg er helt genialt. Det går til og med an å kjøre under vann. Jeg anbefaler dette spillet."
    Jørund Tilley, Norwey

    "After trying the demo version of Island Racer with my 6 year old son, I realized that we are equally amused playing the game together, each taking a turn. I bought the game and now we can spend plenty of time having fun. The best part of this game is that the car can go off track, climbing hills, dashing through forests, sliding sand dunes, and crossing bridges. The best part, when the car falls into a lake and you have to drive it up from the bottom of the lake to be on the road again. I have tried plenty of games that focus on race cars. By all standards this is the best. Many thanks for the customer support system. They mean business."
    Khaled Asfour, Egypt

    "Bravo for MacPool! It's screen is cleanly and colorfully organized and the ability to put variable english on my shots and choose the power of my stroke allows me to not only enjoy my game, but develop it. baKno rules! "

    “Very nice software/game presentation.”
    Richard Lawson, UK

    “The presentation of Billiards assembled by baKno Games is a superb set, containing 9 Ball, 8 Ball, 3 Balls, Straight, and Snooker. Each game is extremely realistic, and just as difficult as the one in the smoke-filled tavern on the corner. When I tried to play "Minnesota Fats" as a youth, I was terrible. With Billiards I'm finally learning what I was doing wrong all those years. For those who like pool this set is dandy for learning how to do it right. The 3D visuals offer a variety of table colors, the instructions are clear, and the sound effects are perfect. It keeps good scores, and doesn't allow cheating. The price is very reasonable, and I don't see how there could be any better simulation anywhere.”
    Neil Barclay, USA

    "If you enjoy playing Texas Hold'em Poker, I strongly recommend Kasino. With easy-to-use controls that supply all of the fun of a real-life poker game, and with customization options that let you make the game look the way you want it to, you'll find yourself using this game daily. All in all, I would give Kasino two thumbs up."
