It’s 8:08am on 8th August 1988, and the evil Dr. H8 has brought the world to the brink of total annihilation! His demands are simple: pay $88 octillion within 88 minutes, or Dr. H8’s 88 thermo-nuclear warheads will wipe out the Earth! But who will save us in our time of need? The bravest? The boldest?

Firestarter for Mac and Linux

Firestarter for Mac and Linux

If you like action games in the way of Unreal and Unreal Tournament, then FireStarter might be a nice one for you too. FireStarter is now ported to Mac and I added it to Porting Kit as in Crossover (Linux + Mac). The game is tested on my Macbook air so it should thus work on any Mac with OSX 10.8.+. Have fun!

In the year 2010, a malicious virus has infected a virtual reality machine, the FireStarter. The intruding program has caused the computer to malfunction. The rules of the simulation have been altered in a potentially deadly manner, with the player’s consciousness trapped inside. There is only one possible way to escape, by completing the game with a period of 48 virtual hours.

Armed and Dangerous for Mac & Linux

Armed and Dangerous for Mac & Linux

You like Lucas Art Action games? Well we have Armed and Dangerous for Mac for you! Armed and Dangerous is an action game with the mixture of Beyond Good and Evil and Chaser. The game works perfectly on my low-end Mac without any issues after playing it for about an hour.

1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup files from Armed and Dangerous when you purchased/owned it.
3. Then for Crossover, simply download the Crosstie…and let Crossover do the work, or in Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install.

Meet the Lionhearts. A smack-talking rag-tag band of rebels embark on an impossible quest. With an arsenal of outrageous weapons, they’re destined for victory in 12,000 bullets or less. If they can make it through an army of psychotic robots and wall-smashing Goliaths, they just might save the world… if they don’t burn it down first.

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.

Smokin Guns for Mac & Linux

Smokin Guns for Mac & Linux

Western fans attention please. I added the free action game Smokin Guns for Mac into Porting Kit and Crossover. This western you can’t compare with poplar games as Call of Juarez and Call of Juarez Gunslinger. However it is still a very nice free action game. I checked the game on my low-end Macbook Air and it works great on both apps (Crossover/Porting Kit!) and it will both automatically download and install the game.

Smokin’ Guns is a semi-realistic simulation of the “Old West’s” atmosphere. The game is a so-called total conversion which was developed on the Quake3 engine. It includes new weapons created with historically correct information about damage, rate of fire, reload time, etc. Moreover, it includes new game types and maps inspired mostly by movies as well as a custom soundtrack.

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then for Crossover, simply download the Crosstie…and let Crossover do the work, or in Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install.
3. After installation of the game, “exit” the installer.
4. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

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.
