Phantasmagoria 2 – A Puzzle of Flesh Wrapper update!

It seems that the GOG.com game port Phantasmagoria 2 – A Puzzle of Flesh had an update/switch from the DOSbox version to the ScummVM version. This caused the game installation to fail. So I updated the port to the ScumVM version so all is good again.

Phantasmagoria 2 – A Puzzle of Flesh is an adventure game and the sequel of the first Phantasmagoria which is also available in the Porting Kit database.

Port Changes:
– Main exe update to ScummVM version.
– Updated the game description with updated info.

Unto the End for Mac

Released not long ago and now added to Porting Kit: Unto the End for Mac! I tested the game with the keyboard controls and that’s working fine. The game is really a “figuring out” style, I got stuck not far into the game, but figured out I had to hit some bones to go underground eventually and then finding someone with a key which you can use to open up a door at the other end of the cave. Well, if you like puzzles, action, platform and adventure, then this game might be something for you :) Game Works great on Intel based Macs, on M1 Silicon it give some glitches but still playable (hope this will be soon fixed in newer engine).
