Blendimals for the Mac!

Blendimals is a very fun free puzzle platform game. It contains humor tactical insight and takes some skill to finish all the levels. The whole idea is to mix animals to a “Blendimal”  using a blender and use the skills of both animals to get to the endpoint. For example mix a rhino and a bunny together and get the power of a rhino and the jumping power of a rabbit. There are a lot of mixtures possible and very fun to play. Before downloading the wrapper, make sure security settings are set correctly when you have Mavericks OSX or higher. Then simply download the wrapper below and extract and play! Check out the video tutorial below as well for some gameplay on my iMac. Enjoy!

Blendimals has a great game-play. At the beginning of each level you face a dangerous course that can never be completed as a single animal. Fortunately the makers have built a mixer which you throw all pure animals and get a “blendimal” with which you can get through the level.

AI War Collection released for Mac

AI Wars has an unique blend of 4X and grand strategy thinking at the galaxy-map level with RTS mechanics and tactics at the planetary level. AI War Collection Includes the base game, AI War: Fleet Command, and the DLC Pack consisting of: AI War: The Zenith Remnant, AI War: Children of Neinzul, AI War: Light of the Spire, AI War: Ancient Shadows, AI War: Vengeance Of The Machine, and AI War: Destroyer of Worlds. Checkout the trailer below for some game-play. The entire collection is normally $19,99 but at the moment of writing only $6.79 for this week! So get it cheap while you still can.

Go forth into the galaxy, steal AI technology, recapture those planets you must in order to achieve your ends, and save what remains of humanity. But draw too much attention to yourself, and the full might of the AI overlords will come crashing down. The inattention of the larger AI is our only hope: a small resistance, too insignificant even to be noticed by the AI central command, has survived. These are the forces you will command. The AI sub-commanders will fight you to the death when they see you — but your glimmer of opportunity comes from quietly subduing those sub-commanders without alerting central processing to the danger until it’s too late.

Valiant Hearts: The Great War for Mac

Valiant Hearts: The Great War for Mac is the story of crossed destinies and a broken love in a world torn apart. I was quite impressed by Valiant Hearts: The Great War, when I start playing it. It has awesome music which brings you straight into the story, nice gameplay, good puzzles and good humor which keeps you playing. Another cool thing is that it tells you also some background information about WW1. I had to stop myself with this one or I would spent to much time with one game :P Played about 2 hours now and passed about 3 levels. I ran into one issue that the game would become slow when playing full screen, so I made the game “Windowed” to fix that. This means you can see the top bar of your Mac desktop when playing, but for the rest it plays native Windows! I will made a video of the game-play below, you will love it! Tested the game on my Nvidia iMac and my Intel Graphics HD 4000 Macbook and works great! Have fun!!

Important: I would change the control key of the dog to “Control” or something, instead of “ALT” to avoid function key issues.

In Valiant Hearts: The Great War™, the lives of all the characters are inextricably drawn together over the course of the game. All of them will try to survive the horror of the trenches, following their faithful canine companion. Friendship, love, sacrifice, and tragedy befall each one as they help each other to retain their humanity against the horrors of war.

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

A new Wine version is out on WineHQ since last Friday! The wine version is now build in an engine and is available in “Winery“. Winery is a program where you can build wrappers with, and is available on the Wineskin website. I used Winery to build all my Wrappers for this website.

You can change the wine engine in existing Wrappers doing: Right-click Wrapper –> show package content –> wineskin –. advanced –> tools –> change engine –> change it to the latest engine you downloaded, in this case 1.7.24.
