Super Power 2 for the Mac!

Super Power 2 is the only global geopolitical simulation game which allows players to control entire countries.  Players control countries in 3 major areas: political, economic and military, but this time, in a beautiful real-time 3D environment. Players build up their own countries and increase their influence in the broader world while competing against sophisticated A.I.  Along the way, gamers make use of economic sanctions, political alliances, and military actions to wage their battles. I tested Super Power 2 a bit in the Portingkit and it seems to work just fine on my Nvidia 64om iMac.

I made the port available as Crosstie and for the Portingkit. So for the basic instructions for the Portingkit installation go here… and to learn more about Crossover go here…

Ultimate General: Gettysburg for the Mac!

Ultimate General: Gettysburg is a Tactical Battle Simulator that allows you to lead thousands of soldiers in the famous Battle of Gettysburg as commander of either the Union or Confederate army.  The game features the most accurately created map, complex morale, innovative control mechanics and smart AI. You have the freedom to use different strategies while the battle progresses. Your decisions and military performance play a crucial role in the result. Lead your army and win the Battle of Gettysburg!

Simple and great. Ultimate General Gettysburg succeeds in what others (PC-) wargames often fail greatly : Being fairly easy to grasp but on the other hand accurately simulating the matter. Due to the impressive and scalable AI and you have a game that is playable by beginners and old grognards as well. The graphics are a mix of a fairly beautiful 2d map plus sprites for the soldiers. Don’t let this description fool you : The game looks gorgeous and I never missed the fancy Total War graphics. UG: Gettysburg doesn’t offer a strategic campaign like TW though, but slices the three Days of Gettysburg in several scenarios.
