Sudden Strike 3 for Mac

The past few days we have ported Sudden Strike Gold and Sudden Strike 2 Gold, and now Sudden Strike 3 as well! Sudden Strike 3 from GOG.com contains 2 separate games: “Sudden Strike 3 – The Last Stand” and “Sudden Strike 3 Arms for Victory“. Both games are now added to Porting Kit! I tested both games and while Arms for Victory works perfectly on my low-end Macbook air, I found in The last Stand a small bug which causes no “voice sound”  in the briefing. Sounds in-game works just fine. Have fun!

Game description:

Sudden Strike 2 + Sudden Strike 2 – Resource War for Mac

After our latest release Sudden Strike Gold, we now also added Sudden Strike 2 Gold! Sudden Strike 2 Gold includes the 2 games “Sudden Strike 2” and “Sudden Strike 2 – Resource War” for which I created both a port. Sudden Strike 2, has already a free version from Gametop (with a redirect to their site after install), but I added the GOG.com source version as well. Resource War however is a new great addition to the Paulthetall.com/Porting Kit catalog. Both games work great!

At the height of World War 2, take command of German, Russian, British, American and Imperial Japanese armies on battelfields across the globe.

Lords of Magic for Mac

Lords of Magic was a game which was on the border to be ported or not. It had some nasty bugs, but I am happy to inform it works great now :D Nice speed and a fix in the install wizard of GOG, which made some text invisible including the install/exit/launch buttons. In short a full fix of the game! If you don’t have it, yet  get it now!

Kingdoms and Castles released for Mac and Linux

Lion Shield just released released a new city builder game on GOG.com called: Kingdoms and Castles! It has much from Banished  and other city builder games like Anno 1503 in combination with “blocky” graphics. Kingdoms and Castles is priced $9,99 on GOG, and has high ratings of user reviews, so it looks promising. Check out the trailer below for some game-play and a first impression.

Game Description:
Your kingdom must survive a living and dangerous world. Do the viking raiders make off with your villagers? Or are they stopped, full of arrows, at the castle gates? Does a dragon torch your granary, your people dying of starvation in the winter, or are you able to turn the beast back?

Dangerous Waters for Mac

Dangerous Waters has returned! I used to have a separate wrapper for this game, but now it is added to Crossover and Porting Kit. This game is another production of Sonalysts Combat Simulations, which also created Fleet command and 688(I) Hunter/Killer which are also ported in Porting Kit and Crossover. Command submarines and fleets and accomplish your missions like real strategists! The game is available cheap on Gamersgate.

Game description:
By assigning certain crew stations to be manned by the “virtual crewmen” the player can hand off various functions for the simulation to manage. This allows the player to tailor the game’s difficulty level to they’re liking and the precise level of involvement and micro management that they wish. The player could choose to monitor every single crew station himself or choose to just command the platform and to let the A.I. do the rest. Auto-crew control is dynamic so the player can enable or disable this feature for every crew station modeled in the game.
