Super Huey III for Mac

You like nostalgic arcade simulators? Well, Super Huey III for Mac may fit in that category. This game port works great and gives a lot of fun. Tested that game for a while (couple of missions) on my Macbook pro with Big Sur, and had some fun :) This entertaining GOG.com game is only $5,99 and I have to say that the creators of the game did a good job trying to bring back the nostalgie of it.

We always recommend having besides Porting Kit also Crossover as alternative. Crossover is more advanced, supports DX11 and has phone support other features. Crossover makes Porting Kit possible and when purchasing Crossover using the links here you support us with out work with Porting Kit. Get it here…

MIG-29 Fulcrum for Mac

Another Flight simulator has been added to Porting Kit and Crossover called: MIG-29 Fulcrum. Mig 29-Fulcrum is just as F-16 Multirole Fighter, a Novologic flight Simulator creation. The game works very nice and I played a mission including bombing my own airport :P on my low-end Intel HD 5000 Macbook air, without issues. have fun!

Game description:
The Mikoyan-Gurevich MIG-29 Fulcrum is one of the world’s most maneuverable and toughest fighter jets and has often been compared to its closest Western counterpart, the F-16. Innovations unique to the aircraft allow MiG pilots to perform remarkable moves like the Tailslide and Cobra maneuvers. Exported to nearly 20 air forces, the MiG-29 continues to be a formidable world presence in the struggle for air-superiority.
