Wasn't there a similar game for the DS? Still, should be interesting to see how this one does.

This could be fun, but I’ll have to find a gameplay video without some annoying dude screaming and repeating all the written text out loud to get an idea…*

Or of course there could be a demo.

(*) I have been unsuccessful in this endeavour, unfortunately.

PC is an acronym for Personal Computer. http://acronyms.thefreedictionary.com/PC and https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PC
A PC can run any kind of OS tailored for a PC. Among those are Windows, Linux, Mac, BSD, etc.

On your text, I assume you were influenced by Mac adds, where they ignore this plausible definition of PC and use the term as a synonym for the Microsoft Windows OS family. This sadly puts Linux and other OS'ses under the shadow, so please don't spread this mistake further!

They're saying "Wacky" a bit too often for my taste. When people describe their comedic thing as "wacky" it makes me think "desperate and lacking imagination". But it could be good.
