Rise of the Dragon for Mac

Another golden oldie adventure release: Rise of the Dragon for Mac. The game itself is a fairly-standard first-person point’n’click adventure game, chock full of game-ending puzzles that were acceptable back then. Rise of the Dragon is not a friendly game. You can die easily, and often. Over 85 scenes and location, each with dozens of randomly generated animations, multiple story branches, puzzle solutions and outcomes makes Rise of the Dragon infinitely re-playable.

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 Rise of the Dragon 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:
So it is written, and Wiliam “Blade” Hunter, Private Investigator is the only man for the job. His violent techniques and brash disregard for regulations got him an early retirement from the Los Angeles Police Department, but now they’ll become the fulfillment of the prophecy – the fall of the Dragon.

Conqueror AD 1086 for Mac

About 2 weeks ago Conqueror AD 1086 was released on GOG.com, So I ported the game to Mac in Porting Kit. This DOS game is a missing GEM with an unique game-play as like RPG classics as Mount and Blade. It’s a grand strategy with tactical battles, role-playing elements and a first person action game all in one!

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 Conqueror AD 1086 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!

The Adventures of Willy Beamish for Mac & Linux

The Adventures of Willy Beamish for Mac & Linux

Another golden olden adventure game available for Mac & Linux: The Adventures of Willy Beamish! Game works great on all Mac’s with this DOS port from GOG.com. Tested it with My intel Iris iMac and low-end Intel HD without issues.If you love those good old full speech adventure point-and-click games, then this one might be interesting for you! Game is available for both Crossover  (also for Linux) and Porting Kit. Check out some gameplay visuals up here…

Welcome to the terminally cute, seriously warped world of Willy Beamish. You’ll face neurotic yuppie parents, teachers pushed over the edge, a ghostly grandfather back from the grave, the baby-sitter from hell, a pet jumping frog on steroids and a plot to blow the city’s sewer system sky high. It’s chaotic, it’s juvenile, it’s definitely deranged and you’re gonna love every minute of it.

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.

Download the Porting Kit up here… or when you own Crossover, this Crosstie…

Caesar II for Mac

Another great news! GOG.com released the digital version of Caesar II! This game is similar to the very popular Caesar 3 and Zeus & Poseidon and Pharaoh & Cleopatra city builder games.

1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup files from Caesar II when you purchased/owned it.

Star Wars Dark Forces for Mac

On request: Star Wars Dark Forces for Mac! The game is available for Linux on GOG.com, so I added the game to Porting Kit so you can play it on Mac as well. Game is a DOS port, so it works great on even low-end macs as my Macbook Air with Intel HD 5000 graphics. Have fun!

Unlike many other Doom-based games, Star Wars -Dark Forces attempted a realistic approach: the missions followed a specific storyline, sometimes cut up by scenes to progress the narrative. Each mission had its own briefing and objective. The levels were designed to represent actual bases, mines, facilities, and other known places from the Star Wars™ universe, like Star Destroyer interiors, Jabba’s ship, Coruscant, etc.

F-117A Nighthawk Stealth Fighter for Mac

Past Weekend I added F-117a Nighthawk Stealth Fighter for Mac to Portingkit. This old classic brings you in the cockpit of this famous airplane to fly the many missions in the game. Plenty of fun for many hours. Should work basicly on every Mac configuration with With OSX 10.7+. Have fun! Porting Kit game page can be found here…

Slice through the dark and own the night in your Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk, the first operational aircraft to utilize stealth technology in its design. This isn’t your typical attack fighter, you’ll be flying sorties under the cover of night, avoiding detection by enemy radar and striking high-value targets with precision weaponry. You’ll want to haunt the battlefield like a ghost, menacing the enemy with earth-shattering ordnance before vanishing in your airborne apparition as suddenly as you appeared.

With a hardcore devotion to authenticity, F-117A brings you unprecedented night combat action. You’ll go through every phase of mission planning, from requesting a specific assignment during briefing to choosing your own munitions during armament, before then climbing into your cockpit and experiencing the thrill of dropping 1,000 lbs. of laser-guided destruction on enemy troops, tanks and bunkers. This is your chance to fly one of the most technologically impressive warplanes ever made.
