Unto the End for Mac

Released not long ago and now added to Porting Kit: Unto the End for Mac! I tested the game with the keyboard controls and that’s working fine. The game is really a “figuring out” style, I got stuck not far into the game, but figured out I had to hit some bones to go underground eventually and then finding someone with a key which you can use to open up a door at the other end of the cave. Well, if you like puzzles, action, platform and adventure, then this game might be something for you :) Game Works great on Intel based Macs, on M1 Silicon it give some glitches but still playable (hope this will be soon fixed in newer engine).

Metro 2033 Redux for Mac

We added not long ago Metro Last Light Redux, now we added Metro 2033 Redux for Mac as well :) This game port works quite well on medium/high-end Macs. I tested the game on my Macbook Pro 2019 and it works similar as Metro Last Light Redux.  When you launch the game the first time after install, it may be a bit “sluggish” and mouse pointer might be stuck, but after adjusting the video resolution (using cursor keys) the mouse issue will be solved from then on (also next launches) and it will be much smoother. When you have a medium end Mac you should lower the settings to have the best user experience.
