Caveblazers for Mac

Another hot game is Caveblazers  for Mac! I received that game last week and added it into Porting Kit. Caveblazers for Mac is a platform action game combining roquelike gameplay. Its fast, its pleasing to play. The game port works very well, although to avoid screen-tearing it’s advised to play the game Windowed. You have that option within game in the video settings. Besides that, it works like a charm :) Make sure you download the “offline backup setup files” into your download folder before starting the install. I keep getting emails of people that the install failed, because they downloaded the wrong setup file :P Game is priced $9,99, worth the money, or wishlist it for a future promo actions (which are plenty on GOG.com).

Install is Simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then download the GOG.com setup file from Caveblazers from GOG (Remember to download the “offline backup setup files”) into your download folder.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the game in the library –> server tab and click install.
4. After installation of the game, “exit” the GOG installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!

Game description:
Caveblazers is an action focused platformer roguelike set in a fantasy world. Each game is unique with procedurally generated levels to explore and a massive amount of items, weapons and equipment to discover. The game takes place in a recently discovered cave, said to hold “unimaginable power”. You play as an adventurer setting out to explore the cave and find out what riches it holds. However, you are not the only one… As you delve deeper in to the cave, you’ll discover new areas to explore, new weapons and new monsters to try them out on.

Both of his bombastic outings were hailed as platform shooter classics back when they were first unleashed upon the world.

Cuphead for Mac

On many request Cuphead for Mac! The game port is experimental and should process to at least 90% of the game (7-8 hours of gameplay) before a possible crash may occur. If this happens, we would gladly get a save game file to reproduce the bug so we can fix it to a full working version. The problem is that the game is very hard :P so we need people to get this far into the game to sent us the save game file :) Meanwhile you can enjoy this awesome made game! Have fun!

Game Description:
Cuphead is a classic run and gun action game heavily focused on boss battles. Inspired by cartoons of the 1930s, the visuals and audio are painstakingly created with the same techniques of the era, i.e. traditional hand drawn cel animation, watercolor backgrounds, and original jazz recordings.

Install is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit if you don’t have it yet.
2. Get the Cuphead game from GOG.com when you don’t own it yet.
3. Download the setup file from your GOG.com game library.
3. Then in Porting Kit search the Cuphead game on the library –> server tab and click install.
