Spelunky for the Mac!

Today I have 2 games for you guys and girls. The free original Spelunky game from 2008, and the Spelunky 2013 Remake! For both games there is  a CrossTie available for Crossover on the game page!  Check out the trailer below to get an idea of the remake game! Have fun!

Spelunky is a unique platformer with randomized levels that offer a challenging new experience each time you play. Journey deep underground and explore fantastic places filled with all manner of monsters, traps, and treasure. You’ll have complete freedom while you navigate the fully-destructible environments and master their many secrets. To stay or flee, to kill or rescue, to shop or steal… in Spelunky, the choice is yours and so are the consequences!

Dungeon Keeper 2 for the Mac!

Everyone can say much about older games, but I have to say newer games aren’t always better. I can say even better, there are older games which cannot be beaten by any new games yet. For example, yesterday I spent most of my evening (which was not meaned to :P)  with an golden oldie “Civilization“. Loved that game in the past and I have to watch out that it consumes much time from me :P

Today another very popular golden oldie called: Dungeon Keeper 2. This game (although not my personal taste of games) is the predecessor of Dungeon Keep (Gold), which is now released for the Mac on, and where you have to play a dungeon keeper where you have to manage way through all the levels. Check out the gameplay below.

Dungeon Keeper 2 is everything its predecessor was, only better and badder! It is probably one of the most addictive and fun games ever created; with tons of dark humor, smooth gameplay, and high replayability value. In addition to that there is a well designed multiplayer mode and a pet-dungeon module that tests your ability to build the ultimate underground labyrinth filled with traps, wierdos, and other bad looking devices. If you liked Dungeon Keeper you will love this ultimate installment of the Bullfrog series.

Retro City Rampage for the Mac!

Tonight I have another “golden oldie” game waiting for you! The game for tonight is Reto City Rampage! I was quite impressed how much stuff is implanted in this game… Lots of humor and meeting all kind of known characters. Gameplay varies a lot (like racing in a car doing tasks, robbing banks) it has some ingredients of Grand Theft Auto, so it won’t get boring at all :) The game works great in Crossover! Check out the trailer below to catch up good old times!

Wreak havoc in in the open-world of Retro City Rampage! You’ll meet a variety of very familiar characters, including a certain time-travelling scientist, engage in various modes of gameplay such as stealth, platforming, early coin-ops, and even encounter radioactive plumbers who await with eager anticipation their chance to murder and masticate you, The Player! But, wait, there’s more! Stomp on hapless pedestrians like they are Goombas and claim your coin. While you are taking the world by storm, you’ll encounter a few guest stars such as Super Meat Boy, Splosion Man and Ms. Splosion, and BIT.TRIP Runner.

Rayman Forever for the Mac

Tonight I have another “golden oldie” game waiting for you! The game for tonight is Rayman Forever! Everyone knows Rayman! Rayman was awarded both “Best Music in a CD-ROM Game” and “Best Animation” in Electronic Gaming Monthly’s 1995 Video Game Award. Colorful graphics, addictive gameplay and a memorable main character made this title one of best selling games of all time. The game works great in Crossover! Check out the trailer below to catch up good old times!

In Rayman’s world, nature and people live together in peace. One day, the evil Mr. Dark defeats Betilla, the Fairy, and steals the Great Protoon, the provider of harmony and balance. The Electoons who used to gravitate towards it lose their natural stability and scatter all over the world. Strange phenomena begin to occur: freaks and hostile characters appear, capturing every Electoon they can find! The disappearance of the Great Protoon also neutralized all of Betilla’s powers, and she needs time to regenerate before she can help in any way. They definitely need a hero to save them, and it looks like you’re it. It’s now up to Rayman and you to rescue the world.

Unepic for the Mac!

Got some good news here. I worked inadvance and have at the moment for about a week every day a new game in store :) Tonight the game port will be Unepic! While taking a break from playing a tabletop RPG, Daniel, an average guy from modern times, is transported to Harnakon’s Castle. Thinking that he is suffering from a hallucination, he decides that he is going to run the adventure for as long as the illusion lasts. As he explores the castle, fights the monsters within, Daniel comes to realize that not everything is as it seems. Works great in Crossover! Check out the trailer below!

Unepic heroically combines open-world platforming gameplay with the intricacy and challenge of the RPG. Tweak Daniel’s skills to your heart’s content. Fight a bewildering variety of monsters, from the lowly goblin to the gigantic dragon, with over 100 different weapons. If forbidden magics are more your calling, then 70 spells and magical items will please even the most discriminating would-be wizard. Monsters, weapons, potions, spells, quests, pets, bosses, a giant castle all come together to make a funny story Unepic. If you love nerd-based humor and the RPG munchkin in you is strong, you’ll appreciate every last bit of this charming RPG/platformer!

Equipped with a new set of tools, including flash mines and scouting orbs, Garrett has to keep himself alive and unveil the secret behind Truart’s actions. Starts out looking as a simple case of corruption will eventually become much more, and Garrett again finds himself a reluctant savior–but that doesn’t mean he’s not going to rob the City blind while he saves it!

Gabriel Knight 2 for the Mac!

As already mentioned earlier, I will do some more DOS games which aren’t for the Mac yet as well.

I will come up with some nice video tutorials about Crossover very soon. Enjoy the game!

This time the protagonist is on the trail of a strange wolf, murderer of a little girl. Gabriel was asked to take care of this evil and suspects that this case is paranormal in nature. Together with his assistant, Grace Nakimura, he discovers the dark truth behind the history of Bavaria.
