Gorogoa for Mac

Gorogoa for Mac is a special puzzle game I added into Porting Kit. Gorogoa is a game that’s exquisitely crafted, not just in its single elements but the way they all combine. The visuals are fantastic and highly detailed, as you’ve probably seen for yourself, and it’s mindblowing to think one person did all of it. Check the trailer to see some visuals.

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup files from Gorogoa  from GOG into your download folder.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the game in the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

Game Description:
The gameplay of Gorogoa is wholly original, comprised of lavishly illustrated panels that players arrange and combine in imaginative ways to solve puzzles. Impeccably simple, yet satisfyingly complex. Gorogoa isn’t just a game – it’s a work of art, expressing itself through soulful, charming illustrations and distinguished puzzle mechanics.

We don’t sit still on paulthetall/portingkit.com. We always are working on things, even when you may think it is quiet on the eastern front. We working on port updates, new game ports, test new features, working on new features etc. Past week I did same game maintenance and Vitor is . working on the new forums. Here a list of wrapper updates + changes.

  • SWAT 4  –> Fixed shader issue for some GFX cards (gave police characters dark/black color) and flashlight bug. The game works perfectly now :)
  • Empire Earth 3 –> fixed a installation bug (popup window which didn’t close by clicking on it.
  • Mirror Edge –> Updated the Winetrick sequence for “Physx”. At first the winetrick would launch after the game, which may cause confusion, now switched the winetrick to ‘before” the install of the game.
  • Riven –> Riven has been updated by GOG to a total different game version (ScummVM). So it needed another launcher (works perfect now)!
  • The Guild 2 –> failed to launch/install, thats fixed now.
  • Desperados 3 – Helldorado –> Added the GOG.com source which was released recently + added some performance improvements and shader bug fixes (characters were darker then they meaned to be).

A sequel to the original Zak McKracken game.  It could have been such a nice day. Zak’s favourite movie is on, most of the work on his novel is done, and Sushi seems to have survived her long stay in the sink quite nicely. Still half asleep, Zak gropes for the mailbox key and wanders down the stairs. Wow, a lot of mail again, he thinks to himself. However, next to the usual advertising for Monolith Burger, this time it also includes a letter from the distant Bogota. Suspecting no evil, Zak opens the envelope. As he reads the first few lines, he loses control of his face…

Major Millions Slot Game

Progressive jackpot games are the ideal choice for online slot players who are serious about making money, and Major Millions is one of the most fun and potentially lucrative progressive jackpot games out there. While its sister game Mega Moolah might get all the glory, Major Millions is well worth a look as it has plenty to offer players of all different levels.

Major Millions embodies a fun, military style theme with all the symbols themed around this idea including medals, binoculars, planes, warships and even a tank. Unlike most other online slots there are none of the generic playing card symbols in this game – everything is consistent with the military theme. The main jackpot at Major Millions might not be the guaranteed $1 million plus that you’ll find at Mega Moolah but it seeds at $250,000 and goes up from there. The average win is around $570,000, which makes it well worthwhile. The biggest win at Major Millions is just short of $2 million so you could be in for a shot at a major hunk of cash.
