War Wind II – Human Onslaught for Mac

War Wind II – Human Onslaught is a strategy game as many others on GOG.com. Multi-player makes the game even more interesting. If you like strategy games like Warlords BattleCry 3 (which is also added in Porting Kit and Crossover) then this might be something in your taste.

War Wind II – Human Onslaught offers a great variety of vehicular, mechanised and special units, with intense and exciting maps, and a rich array of options, graphics and sounds, along with a combat model that offers a dynamic balance of play. All this, plus the addition of the human element make War Wind: Human Onslaught a compelling must-play for any real-time strategy fan.

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

Soldiers Heroes of World War 2 for Mac

On request! Soldiers Heroes of World War 2 for Mac is added to Porting Kit! Because the port contains  a custom engine, the game is not playable in Crossover yet. The game works great single player but was not able to create/host a game, but might be fixed following the “notes” of the game description. Haven’t tested that fix though… Anyway, enjoy the game!

Soldiers: Heroes of World War II drops you into the heart of the most intense WWII combat action. Take control of the most elite American, British, German, or Russian forces ever to impact on the war-zone. Up against overwhelming odds, you must complete your missions incorporating stealth, guile, speed, and aggression.

Anno 1701 for Mac

Great news and some less good news. Anno 1701 for Mac has been added to Porting Kit! The less good news is, it only works in Crossover for now… Reason is the Hardware check/diagnose, which get passed without issues on Crossover, but causes a black screen freeze in Porting Kit using Wineskin. Vitor is looking for a way to bypass this “check” because this is the only show stopper. Meanwhile the game will be only playable using Crossover at the moment. Maybe a good reason to get Crossover next to Porting Kit.

Anno 1701 is the most elaborate and expensive game production in the German speaking region and the sequel to the most successful, multi-million selling game series of all times. The third part of the unique combination of different genres creates a real-time building game and is also set in 16th and 17th century, the era of discoveries and maritime trade.

7th Legion for Mac

7th Legion for Mac is a good old strategy game. Game works great on even low-end Mac’s. The game although has in-game multiplayer options, GOG unfortunately turned off the multiplayer option. Anyhow, still a very nice game with the features below:

  • Endless strategic choices and timed sub-missions in a futuristic war-torn world.
  • Play either the 7th Legion or the Chosen in over 35 feverish finger-blistering combat missions.
  • Over 50 Battle Cards and 20 power-ups instantly turn the tide of battle.
  • Progressive technology levels reveal advanced buildings, units and weapons.
  • Ruthless mercenaries get smarter as they collect mutilated bodies for cold hard cash.

Centuries of reckless consumption and overpopulation had brought the Earth’s ecosystem to the brink of collapse. In desperation, governments of the world developed an interstellar Evacuation Program granting exit passes only to the most privileged segments of society. The poor and common were left behind to perish. Now centuries later, the “Chosen” have decided to return to Earth and assume control. But there’s a catch – the 7th Legion is waiting with a powerful and fiery “welcome home” BBQ planned in their honor.

Civilization III for Mac

Great news! Civilization III for Mac has been added to Porting Kit! The game is not longer native for Mac for a while so, that’s why many requests for a port for the game. Well here it is! Although the game itself works great, there is a music bug which causes the music to get stuck after a while playing, in that case, you have to turn of the music so only Sound FX will be there. A small price to pay, for such an amazing game. Oh one more thing, the Windows Steam game is only priced $3,99 on Games Republic, so get it cheap there (if you don’t own the game yet)!

Sid Meier’s Civilization III: Complete, the latest offering in the Sid Meier’s Civilization III franchise, provides gaming fans with Sid Meier’s Civilization III, the highly-addictive journey of discovery, combined with the updated and enhanced multiplayer expansion pack Sid Meier’s Civilization III: Play the World*, as well as all of the great new civilizations, scenarios, and features from Sid Meier’s Civilization III: Conquests! Sid Meier’s Civilization III: Complete provides more ways to explore, more strategies to employ, more modes of play, and more ways to win, all in one box!
