Close Combat 5 – Invasion Normandy for Mac

Close Combat 5 - Invasion Normandy for Mac

On request: Close Combat 5 – Invasion Normandy for Mac! I found the game and more on the closecombatseries.com website. I tested all Close combat games using my porting skills, and they all failed except for the last one… Close Combat 5. So this way, you are still able to play the game on your Mac! To play the game you need the CD iso of the game and follow the instructions mentioned in Porting Kit. You can download the specific Close of Combat 5 game freely up there…

Close Combat 5 Invasion Normandy drops you onto the beaches and hedgerows of Normandy. Your Airborne troops have landed behind the beaches while your main attacking force just butted heads with the German bunkers towering over them on the beaches. One of the main shifts from Battle of the Bulge to Invasion Normandy is the reliance on infantry once again and the ability to customize the platoon you enter battle with.
