Ultimate General: Gettysburg for the Mac!

Ultimate General: Gettysburg is a Tactical Battle Simulator that allows you to lead thousands of soldiers in the famous Battle of Gettysburg as commander of either the Union or Confederate army.  The game features the most accurately created map, complex morale, innovative control mechanics and smart AI. You have the freedom to use different strategies while the battle progresses. Your decisions and military performance play a crucial role in the result. Lead your army and win the Battle of Gettysburg!

Simple and great. Ultimate General Gettysburg succeeds in what others (PC-) wargames often fail greatly : Being fairly easy to grasp but on the other hand accurately simulating the matter. Due to the impressive and scalable AI and you have a game that is playable by beginners and old grognards as well. The graphics are a mix of a fairly beautiful 2d map plus sprites for the soldiers. Don’t let this description fool you : The game looks gorgeous and I never missed the fancy Total War graphics. UG: Gettysburg doesn’t offer a strategic campaign like TW though, but slices the three Days of Gettysburg in several scenarios.

Not a Hero for the Mac!

Finally another game port :) after a busy period in my private life here another game port of one of the latest indie games.

Professional assassin turned amateur campaign manager Steve is charged with cleaning up the city by an anthropomorphic rabbit and mayoral candidate from the future named BunnyLord. Now Steve and his expanding roster of dubious heroes must wield their unique skills to shoot, slide, dive, and take cover behind a political platform built on ethics, accountability, and an inordinate amount of gunfire. I tested Not a Hero and works even on my Intel HD 5000 and played 2 levels without any issues. Below some visuals of the game.

Simply download the Portingkit (if you don’t have it already) and go to the library –> server tab and select the “Not a Hero” and click download. If you don’t own the game yet the Portingkit can direct you to the game page where to purchase it and download the setup/download file into your download folder. When you clicked “no” and were directed to the game page, you have to click “download” again and then click “yes” so the Portingkit will install the game for you. After installation the Portingkit will say the installation was done successfully. Then go to your “local” tab where you can select the game and click “play”!

Subject 13 released for Mac!

Nice one! This are the kind of adventures I personally really like! Subject 13 is the new adventure game developed by Paul Cuisset—the man behind “Flashback”, “Future Wars: Adventures in Time” and “Moto Racer”—in partnership with Microïds. Play as Franklin Fargo, a quiet physics professor who has led a bitter existence ever since his fiancée died in a holdup in which he was supposed to be the victim. One morning, he wakes up in the middle of an abandoned scientific facility. His only link with the outside world is a voice that calls him “Subject 13”. This game is released now on GOG.com and is 35% the first week! Check out the trailer below to see some visuals of the game.

Subject 13 will make you travel from a secret base that has been abandoned to a strange and mysterious island, and in other places, so you can discover the real story. You’ll have to muster all your insight and intelligence for this daunting challenge.

More game ports added to the Portingkit!

A lot of good old games are added at the moment. Last post about added games to Portingkit were a lot of Nordic games. Here are some more for the GOG.com version. This means that the Gamersgate WSI/download file was already present, but now the GOG.com version is added for the same game as well. I did that for the games Aquanox, Aquanox 2.

Then here some “new” games I added to Portingkit. First to make the Black Mirror series complete: Black Mirror 3 is added. I also added most of the King’s Quest series starting with Kings Quest I Remake (the original Mac version crashes on start-up). In the same post I added links to the 2 other King’s Quest remakes with a working Mac version.

Then I added also Kings Quest IV, King’s Quest V and King’s Quest VI which comes in one package from GOG.com. They all have separate WSI/Download files because they have separate installer files. Enjoy!
