Sudden Strike 2, has already a free version from Gametop (with a redirect to their site after install), but I added the GOG.com source version as well. Resource War however is a new great addition to the Paulthetall.com/Porting Kit catalog. Both games work great!

In New York, terrifying alien invaders stalk the streets and a nightmare plague strikes down the city’s myriad inhabitants with brutal epidemic speed. The city’s systems are in chaos, its streets and skyline are smashed and in flaming ruin. This is New York City like you’ve never seen it before. Neither paramilitary law enforcement nor the might of the US military machine can stand against the invaders, and all who choose not to flee are dead men walking. Just to survive in this maelstrom of death will require technology beyond anything any modern soldier has ever seen.

Hooah! We keep it coming! We added Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 for Mac to Porting Kit and Crossover! I played the game for about 30 minutes without issues on my Medium end Intel Iris iMac (although the video card is even not supported by the game). High-end Macs are really recommended.

And another cool title has been ported: Binary Domain! The game is both added to Porting Kit and Crossover. I played/tested the games for about an hour without issues on as well my intel Iris iMac as on my Macbook air.

Calling “regroup[” or “fire” or other commands to your companions, is quite fun!
