Retro City Rampage for the Mac!

Tonight I have another “golden oldie” game waiting for you! The game for tonight is Reto City Rampage! I was quite impressed how much stuff is implanted in this game… Lots of humor and meeting all kind of known characters. Gameplay varies a lot (like racing in a car doing tasks, robbing banks) it has some ingredients of Grand Theft Auto, so it won’t get boring at all :) The game works great in Crossover! Check out the trailer below to catch up good old times!

Wreak havoc in in the open-world of Retro City Rampage! You’ll meet a variety of very familiar characters, including a certain time-travelling scientist, engage in various modes of gameplay such as stealth, platforming, early coin-ops, and even encounter radioactive plumbers who await with eager anticipation their chance to murder and masticate you, The Player! But, wait, there’s more! Stomp on hapless pedestrians like they are Goombas and claim your coin. While you are taking the world by storm, you’ll encounter a few guest stars such as Super Meat Boy, Splosion Man and Ms. Splosion, and BIT.TRIP Runner.

Rayman Forever for the Mac

Tonight I have another “golden oldie” game waiting for you! The game for tonight is Rayman Forever! Everyone knows Rayman! Rayman was awarded both “Best Music in a CD-ROM Game” and “Best Animation” in Electronic Gaming Monthly’s 1995 Video Game Award. Colorful graphics, addictive gameplay and a memorable main character made this title one of best selling games of all time. The game works great in Crossover! Check out the trailer below to catch up good old times!

In Rayman’s world, nature and people live together in peace. One day, the evil Mr. Dark defeats Betilla, the Fairy, and steals the Great Protoon, the provider of harmony and balance. The Electoons who used to gravitate towards it lose their natural stability and scatter all over the world. Strange phenomena begin to occur: freaks and hostile characters appear, capturing every Electoon they can find! The disappearance of the Great Protoon also neutralized all of Betilla’s powers, and she needs time to regenerate before she can help in any way. They definitely need a hero to save them, and it looks like you’re it. It’s now up to Rayman and you to rescue the world.

Unepic for the Mac!

Got some good news here. I worked inadvance and have at the moment for about a week every day a new game in store :) Tonight the game port will be Unepic! While taking a break from playing a tabletop RPG, Daniel, an average guy from modern times, is transported to Harnakon’s Castle. Thinking that he is suffering from a hallucination, he decides that he is going to run the adventure for as long as the illusion lasts. As he explores the castle, fights the monsters within, Daniel comes to realize that not everything is as it seems. Works great in Crossover! Check out the trailer below!

Unepic heroically combines open-world platforming gameplay with the intricacy and challenge of the RPG. Tweak Daniel’s skills to your heart’s content. Fight a bewildering variety of monsters, from the lowly goblin to the gigantic dragon, with over 100 different weapons. If forbidden magics are more your calling, then 70 spells and magical items will please even the most discriminating would-be wizard. Monsters, weapons, potions, spells, quests, pets, bosses, a giant castle all come together to make a funny story Unepic. If you love nerd-based humor and the RPG munchkin in you is strong, you’ll appreciate every last bit of this charming RPG/platformer!

Alien Arena for the Mac!

Tonight another action game for you guys! This game is called Alien Arena and is a free Shooter in the way of Unreal Tournament. The game works great in Crossover, however you need a good GFX card (512mb recommended) for the game. Besides that you need to make sure “GLSL” is de-selected in the video options, otherwise you will experience graphical glitches. I made it easy for you guys to make a CrossTie which will automaticly download and install the game in Crossover. Check out the trailer to see the gameplay! Have fun!

Do you like old school deathmatch with modern features? How about rich, colorful, arcadelike atmospheres? How about…retro Sci Fi? Then you’re going to love what Alien Arena has in store for you! This game combines some of the very best aspects of such games as Quake III and Unreal Tournament and wraps them up with a retro alien theme, while adding tons of original ideas to make the game quite unique.
