Reventure for Mac

Nice one! Reventure for Mac! Which is also of course tested in Catalina OS 10.15.x.

Enjoy!

Game description:
An adventure with 100 different endingsYou are a wannabe hero who is supposed to do hero-ish things but sometimes blows that off and does crazy stuff instead.
Choose your path, every decision leads to a new ending.
Will you find the real one? Is there such a thing?
Only one way to know…

2. Then download the GOG.com setup file from Caveblazers from GOG (Remember to download the “offline backup setup files”) into your download folder.

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.

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.

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.
