MEGAPLEX MADNESS - NOW PLAYING HD is a very well executed time management puzzle game, particularly because of how well the real-world moviegoing experience translates to this genre. Customers enter the theater to buy a ticket, head to the concession stand, spend some time at the arcade if they're early, and then find their correct theater number. This multistep experience is a perfect fit for this kind of game, and it is done very well here. There is a veritable treasure trove of upgrades for players to buy with in-game currency, from ultimate popcorn machines to wall decor. This encourages players to keep running through day after day, in order to build the most spectacular theater they can imagine. The addition of arcade-style mini-games is also a nice touch.
