Space action in Tachyon: The Fringe for Mac & Linux! Yep, its added in Porting Kit and Crossover (Crossover for Linux users)! I tested the game on my low-end Macbook air and works great! Have fun with this one.
Caught in the middle of a violent conflict on the fringe of the galaxy — your ability to survive will depend on your piloting skills and combat savvy as a mercenary space fighter. But, as you explore the vastly detailed world of Tachyon: The Fringe, you will often find that the most powerful weapon on your ship is in your head.
Adventure lovers may love this one: Dark Fall – The Journal for Mac & Linux (Linux using Crossover)! This adventure is rated quite high on GOG.com and especially the ones who like creepy games, this one may satisfy their needs. I myself am not really fan of those :P. I only played it for a few minutes. A nice thing though is that Dark Fall – The Journal is part of the weekly sale and is 75% off! So if you are interested in the game, you can get it cheap now ($1,49).
You come back from work hoping to get a good night’s sleep but then you notice light blinking on your answering machine. It was your brother – an architect redeveloping an old train station and hotel. He called to ask for your help. Alarmed by his frightened voice, cryptic information about some disappearance and strange whispers in the background you board a train without hesitation. From now on your adventure has just begun and soon you will realize that although no one is there, you are not alone…
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.
It’s bin a while, but flight-sim fans may enjoy this one (and a couple more are coming up) F-16 Multirole Fighter for Mac has been added to Porting Kit and Crossover (Linux + Mac). Game works great on even low-end Mac’s as my Macbook air. Multiplayer seems not to work, or at least there were no internet servers available when I looked. LAN may work though, but not tested. Enjoy this Novalogic classic!
With innovative technologies such as fly-by-wire controls, sophisticated systems for night and all-weather operations and the ability to carry a variety of weapons, the F-16 Multirole Fighter continually proves to be the workhorse of the USAF. Victorious in all of its air-to-air engagements, the awesome reputation of the F-16 is undisputed.
I just found out that our Codeweavers friends, (makers of Crossover (Linux + Mac)), made the game World of Warships available for Mac! They already did for World of Tanks, and now they added this one to their list. Support their work by buying Crossover, as I already preach for years to have both Crossover and Porting Kit on your Mac as Primary gaming apps. Have fun!
The highly anticipated World of Warships is the latest free-to-play combat game to be added to Wargaming’s catalog. Command a massive naval fleet featuring history’s most iconic war vessels, level up important tech modules and prepare to dominate the oceans in World of Warships. With four classes of ships, myriad upgrades, and meticulously designed environments, the action never ends. Endless hours of strategy, tactical gameplay, and pulse pounding combat await all who take the helm in World of Warships!

On request! There was already a game page of this game, but I added Marble Drop for mac to Porting Kit. The game is abandonware so I added the free version. The Porting Kit version needs one extra action from yourself to make it work, but I made a video tutorial especially for that small action so even the non-technical people can enjoy this gem! The extra instructions are also mentioned in the Porting Kit description for the ones who think they can handle it without watching the video tutorial.
Players are given an initial set of 42 marbles divided evenly into six colors. These marbles are picked up and dropped by the player into funnels leading to a series of rails, switches, traps and other devices which grow more complex as the game progresses. The aim is to ensure that marbles arrive in the bin with the same color as the marble. Players must determine how the marble will travel through the puzzle, and how its journey will change the puzzle for the next marble.
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. So if you love action with some fun and some changing gameplay, then this one might be a nice one for you. I added the game both in Crossover (Linux + Mac) and in Porting Kit, so take your pick ;).
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.
Two free Steam games are now added to Porting Kit and Crossover (Linux + Mac)! Soda Dungeon and Midas Gold Plus! Both Steam games are quite popular although quite simple games. Both games work fine in low-end Mac’s like my Macbook Air. Simply download/install the game into the Windows Steam Porting Kit/Crossover will install, and start having fun!

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.
