Cardpocalypse for Mac

We don’t have these much in the Porting Kit, but here it goes: Cardpocalypse for Mac! Yes, another Card action game! From the award-winning indie game studio, Gambrinous, creators of Guild of Dungeoneering, comes an RPG where battles are played with an epic collectible card game. Cardpocalypse takes you back to the 1990’s, a time when computers used floppy disks, and people read magazines for video game cheat codes.  Best of all it’s included free with Cardpocalypse! Game works very nicely and is tested in Big Sur :) Have fun!

We always recommend having besides Porting Kit also Crossover as alternative. Crossover is more advanced, supports DX11 and has phone support other features.

Populous 3 – The beginning wrapper update

I heard that there was an issue with the Populous 3 regarding that main exe path. So I checked it out, and yup, it seems that GOG changed the main exe path from “populous – The beginning” to “Populous 3”, so I needed to adjust that. Now that’s fixed, the port should work again as attended in PK4.  PK3 has already a “safety” build-in which recognizes changes and fixes paths automatically, but that wasn’t build-in into PK4 yet. This is still on the todo list.  So if you own the GOG.com game and you ran into issues in PK4, then please reinstall the game using the new port update in the Porting Kit game library.

Changes:
– Fix main exe path (was changed in the latest update of the GOG.com installer)

Tex Murphy – The Pandora Directive for Mac

Another Native Mac game which worked on Mojave and below, is now ported so it is playable on Catalina 10.15.x and Big Sur and up! Tex Murphy – The Pandora Directive has been added into the Porting Kit database for Catalina OS and up! I played the game for a while and it works pretty well. The only thing i run into is that it regularly may occur that loading the next screen may take a couple of seconds (black screen), so in that cases, don’t panic and wait those couple of seconds before you can simply continue your quest. Have fun with this classic and get the game on GOG.com and install it into Porting Kit!

Game description:
The year is 2087, eighty-nine years after an all out nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union turned vast swaths of the Earth into a hellish wasteland where survival is a daily struggle against thirst, hunger, radiation sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants – always mutants. You are a Desert Ranger, one of a band of stalwart lawmen born from the remnants of a U.S. Army detachment who survived the nuclear holocaust by holing up in a maximum security prison. You may wear ragtag uniforms and carry make-shift weapons, but the Desert Rangers are the only law left in what was once the American southwest.

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.

There is no Game: Wrong Dimension for Mac

There is no game Wrong Dimension is one of these games which really entrigued me (check trailer), and now I made it available for Mac! When I tested the game, I didn’t knew what to expect. I had not watched the trailer and was first focused how the game port was working (which worked flawlessly by the way). But then the funny narrator was starting to keep me playing. Making me to find out what he would say next if I would beat him with the puzzles. And it was really fun! I played about 1.5 hours in a row! That’s an accomplishment for a game to keep me focussed on it. So yes, this GOG.com game a recommendation to play this one. If you check the trailer you will get an impression. Game is tested on Catalina OS 10.15+ so, you are safe to try it out :) Enjoy!
