We just reviewed this game, and I gotta say, it makes for a solid purchase. And this is not PR speak, this is a fun game, for Mac and Windows.
It is a simple shooter, arrow keys to move your ship, mouse to aim. It draws on the influences of games like Crystal Quest, and has great use of vibrant colors.
Be sure to read our BC Feature for more on the game!
Unlike the Windows version of the game, the Mac does not see yearly updates. While this is generally a good thing, as only small changes were made year-over-year, the last Mac port of this best-selling series was not written for Mac OS X.
Mac OS X does come with a chess game. But it is only a game, and a rather limiting one at that. Chessmaster has always been more than just a game, and that is the reason to consider the purchase -- for both the novice and pro alike.
Not many First Person Shooters distinguish themselves from the rest of the pack in this overcrowded genre. XIII is one of them. Developed by Ubisoft and ported by Zonic (who have ported a lot of games to the Mac) for release by Feral Interactive in June 2004, the Mac version includes all the game play modes from the console and PC iterations of the game.
Before XIII was a video game, it was a comic book. The adaptation is an extraordinary display of style. The cell-shaded presentation is entirely new to the FPS genre, and just as Jet Grind Radio before it, is a breath of fresh air.
Boston, Mass.-based Red Marble Games on Thursday announced the release of BreakQuest, a brick bashing arcade game for the Macintosh. BreakQuest requires Mac OS X and costs US$19.95. A demo version is available that includes eight playable levels.Source: MacCentral
There is a Windows version as well. It plays better then the the OS X version, because there is a fluke cursor glitch.
I am a sucker for the arkinoid/breakout games. Block style arcade games are my favorite. And, like, OMG, they like are not violent.
BreakQuest is a great game. I recommend it. It is not easy, and it has a lot of levels.
