Battle Isle 4: The Andosia War for the Mac

Battle Isle 4: The Andosia War is a good old strategy game, just as his predecessors in Battle Isle Platinum, where most of the games in that serie works in Crossover (Wrappers are coming soon). Many people know the game Battle Isle from their childhood and love the game-play. Here is the chance to play it on your Mac!

The year is 345 N.A. on the planet Chromos, a civilization that once boasted a flourishing society ruled by the Council of the Wise. Power struggles, corruption, war – that is the reality on Chromos now and, with the Andosia War, the Battle Isle saga continues with new features to the series by bridging the gap between turn based and real time combat.

Download the Wrapper from the link below and when you have OSX Mavericks, you have set these settings first. Then install the version of Battle Isle: The Andosia War into the Wrapper and set the start executable to bitaw.exe as the video shows below and launch the game and set your resolution and GFX settings. First time you launch the game resolution aren’t correct, so just quit the game and from that time it will launch in your native resolution normally. Have fun!

Fighting Street for the Mac!

I found this free Streetfighter “clone” called Fighting Street when I was looking for some indie games. Works great on as well low-end as on high-end Macs. Simply download and extract the zip file and launch the Wrapper to play. Then press enter to select the language and play. Controls are a,s,d,f,g + cursor keys. In the story mode you cannot skip speech, so you have to wait them out (good to know before pressing all the keyboard keys trying to skip it). Have fun with this free game! Checkout the trailer below for some impressions of Fighting Street.

The idea behind Fighting Street which can not be called a remake but a real parallel play that reflects the spirit of the ‘original Street Fighter, with its settings and characters, music and sound effects, the flavor of the 80’s and part of our childhood. However, it changes the alchemy transforming it from a normal beat em up to a beat em up action with strong colors and multiple styles. In fact the game is not the classic scrolling beat em up, but will boast very different missions, including platforming sections, and stage-style action. All this will be included in story mode with alternate phases in the two classic heroes Ryu and Ken.

Robocraft Wrapper update!

It looks like that the game RoboCraft is starting to advance quite fast in development. I got a message in my mailbox about a new release with “Air Supremacy” update which makes it possible to fly around the map with your own created machine. I also took advantage of the update to remove my account info :-P, and update it to the latest version. I also changed the icon a little bit to make it even better. In short, download this new baby and make a brilliant design and start blow things op!

–  Update to latest version of the game
–  Improved icon

Dead Steel for the Mac!

Dead Steel is a free shootem-up in the way of Alien Shooter 2 reloaded and the free Alien Swarm. Dead Steel has kidnapped us into a familiar surrounding.  You have a lot of upgrading options. You can choose to upgrade many perks from a variety of properties. In the Co-op mode, you can enjoy the game with a friend. Check out the video below for some gameplay.

Simply download the wrapper and extract it with an unzip program like the free KEKA and play. If you have low end Mac 256mb GFX card, then I recommend to turn off “Particles” and “Gore” in the game options. If you want to play widescreen, that’s possible but you have to do some extra steps: Right-click the Wrapper –> show package content –> c_drive –> program files –> Media Design School –> Dead Steel –> open “AppSettings.ini” with a text editor and change the “ScreenWidth” and “ScreenHight” to your choice. Have fun!

Panzer Tactics HD for the Mac!

I ported a game which looks a bit like it a few months back called: Tank Operation: European Campaign and has some aspects of Panzer General 2 also. Well in Panzer Tactics HD you face the same WW2 challenge. Experience history first-hand and join the Soviet Red Army, the German Wehrmacht and the Western Allies. Choose from the three challenging historical campaigns with more than 30 missions and additional scenarios. This game is Steam a game, so you need a Steam Wrapper for it to play. The Steam Wrappers you need to use is: Steambuild1bX11 which can be found in the Steambuild Wrapper folder.

Install instructions:
Get the Wrapper Steambuild1bX11 from the Steam Wrapper Folder mentioned earlier. Extract the Wrapper and do the following extra action: rightclick wrapper show package content –> wineskin –> screen settings –> click “override” and set the resolution to full screen (See screenshot). Then close wineskin and double-click the Wrapper to  login into the Windows Steam. Then get the game from Gamersgate and use the serial to a activate and download the game in Steam. When the game is downloaded, launch it and play! Check out the introduction trailer below to get introduced. Game works awesome!

Hegemony Rome: The Rise of Ceasar for the Mac!

Maybe some of you already know the great strategy game Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greek. It seems that last week a new folloup of the game is released called Hegemony Rome: Rise of Caesar. This game will put you (as the game name describes) in charge of Caesar himself, in a great campaign conquering the lands. This game is Steam a game, so you need a Steam Wrapper for it to play. The Steam Wrappers which are present at the moment, won’t work with the game, so I added a new Steam Wrapper called: Steambuild1bX11 which will and can be found in the Steambuild Wrapper folder.

Install instructions:
Get the Wrapper Steambuild1bX11 from the Steam Wrapper Folder mentioned earlier. Extract the Wrapper and login into the Windows Steam. Then get the game from Gamersgate and use the serial to a activate and download the game in Steam. When the game is downloaded, launch it, and you will notice that the first time it takes about 1 minute to launch the first time (and about 30 seconds the times after that using my Nvidia GT 640M iMac) and will first show the top bar of your Mac osx. To fix that, you have to make the game full screen and change resolution in the game options. When doing so, I suggest to lower the resolution to improve better performance and adjust the advanced graphics as well to “this settings” for even better performance. The game runs fine for me in this settings but this shows that this game will run quite slow on low-end macs with only 256 mb gfx cards. So 512mb GFX card is not luxery here. Check out the introduction trailer below to get introduced.

Battle Tanks 2 for the Mac!

I made a big list of all kinda free games I crossed by through time, and one of them is Battle Tank 2. This free fun game makes you commander of tank and you have to protect and conquer enemy flags. Do  a quick battle or play one of the 5 other maps with its own purpose. This game is really fun when you are in the mood to blow things up. You have also the power to command your other tanks to do tasks, like: to follow you, to attack and so on. This game works great and is really fun to play. Check out the video below for some gameplay.

Battle Tanks II is a combination of action and strategy. You can select a Tank in one of the 5 unique battlefields and survive the map. If you like being the commander of your army, you can sit back away from the action, directing your army’s actions strategically. However, if you prefer action, there’s nothing stopping you from helping your tanks out to join the fight.

Simply download the Wrapper using the link below and extract the Wrapper and play! It’s free!
