As the tide begins to turn in favor of the allies, the enemy struggles ever more desperately to maintain the footholds it had gained earlier in the war.

Asterix and Caesars Challenge for the Mac!

Here another remake which I will do regularly between the normal commercial game ports. This time a remake of the Classic Asterix and Obelix! This beat em up game which has a lot away of Double Dragon, but then with romans and tigers and gladiators and such.  It’s free, and simply extract and play! Share it on your facebook or google+ account because a lot of remakes will come as an extra bonus for the fans! Below a video of the gameplay of the fan made game!

Caesar has built a mighty palisade around Asterix’ village, so the villagers stay in. To show Caesar that they can freely go wherever they want, our two friends set out on a journey across all countries in the Roman empire, bringing back a souvenir from each, so they can mock Caesar’s palisade. Asterix and Caesar’s Challenge is a pretty good Beat’ Em’ Up. Graphically, it doesn’t just have a good resemblance with the comics. It’s completely identical to them, and includes cutscenes, showing pages of the comic, along with the cover of it, so you know from which book that area’s taken from.

World of Tanks 9.0 Update!

Edit: I updated the normal World of Tanks Wrapper (AMD version is still in tact) which is Intel/Nvidia optimized. (Has better performance and should fix a close/crash of game after a battle)

World of Tanks got an update a few days back. This update was especially focused on graphics. Well in Wine this can be a good thing or a bad thing, also dependent on the video card you have in your Mac. For AMD Radeon for example, it worked always good. Good FPS, no glitches, etc. On Nvidia and Intel it is a different story. Anyway, I got some questions about World of Tanks that the game crashes after one battle since the latest 9.0 update.So I looked into the matter and spent the whole night testing and tweaking. A thing I saw was the graphics tab was different. You can improve the graphics and Field of View (FOV) or decrease it, but the last one you should do to get some performance improvements.

In the end I created now 2 Wrapper flavors which is specialized on the specific GFX cards. With both my Nvidia iMac with 512mb and My AMD Radeon 670M I could play about 3 games in a row without any troubles. Yes, the wrappers aren’t flawless and you should check which wrapper works best for you. I created a game play video with the 9.0 version of WOT to show how it works at the moment. Enjoy!

Moto Racer 3 for the Mac!

The game has a broad range of gameplay modes from freestyle to superbike racing, so enough to keep you occupied for a lot of lonely nights! Check out the trailer below to get warmed up for the game!

Ride superbikes at blurring speeds on authentic race tracks or venues in Paris, doing your best to avoid Parisian drivers.

Finally, beat physics into submission while riding an enduro bike and do your best not to fall off tracherous obstacle courses in the insanely difficult and satisfying trial mode. Moto Racer 3 has got something for everyone and does an admirable job at it, too! The Gold edition comes with tons of improvements, new tracks, new motorcycle models, crazy bonus vehicles and an enhanced graphics engine.
