Metal Slug Series for Mac

Although the Mac version of Metal Slug is not “officially” supported, it is available for Mac and Linux on GOG.com. I checked them myself, and they just work great! Simply buy the game from GOG.com and download the game at the “game goodies” (see screenshot on game page, check link below) and extract and play. Enjoy!

The same counts for: Metal Slug 2, Metal Slug 3 and Metal Slug X. All 3 games have a Mac and Linux version as well.

Game description:
“METAL SLUG”, the very first title in SNK’s legendary 2D run & gun action shooting game series where it all began, returns on the GOG gaming platform!

I made a game page for the series up here…

Crosscode released for Mac

Crosscode released for Mac

This retro-inspired 2D Action RPG might outright surprise you. CrossCode combines 16-bit SNES-style graphics with butter-smooth physics, a fast-paced combat system, and engaging puzzle mechanics, served with a gripping sci-fi story.

CrossCode is all about how it plays! Take the best out of two popular genres, find a good balance between them and make a great game. That’s what CrossCode does. And it works pretty well. You get the puzzles of Zelda-esque dungeons and are rewarded with the great variety of equipment you know and love from RPGs. During the fast-paced battles you will use the tools you find on your journey to reveal and exploit the enemies’ weaknesses and at the same time will be able to choose equipment and skills for a more in-depth approach in fighting your enemies.

And of course there are barriers. If the 16 already made caves are to hard, modify them or make your own with the built in cave editor.
