7th Legion for the Mac!

Now all should be working fine, we can go back at the task at hand! I will start as first new game post on the new site with 7th Legion! 7th legion is an old strategy game which has been re-released on GOG.com a few weeks back. The game looks a bit like the basic strategy games as Red Alert and Earth 2150, and is quite enjoyable to play. Enjoy the game!

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.

Zork Grand Inquisitor for the Mac!

Do you know the old Zork games? Well, once you step through the door to Zork, you leave the world of arcade games and trite fantasies behind and enter the dimension of your imagination. Every plot, every puzzle, every personality has been honed and perfected to make your experience uniquely realistic and involving. Zork Grand Inquisitor, is and adventure game where you have to solve puzzles and  laugh your ass out with all the funny things implanted in the game. I created a Wrapper and a CrossTie for the game. For the CrossTie you have to wait one more day, will be approved tomorrow. I couldn’t find a descent game play trailer so I put in a screenshot. Enjoy!

Zork: Grand Inquisitor is the last installment of the famous Zork adventure series. It uses the same formula as its predecessor: first-person perspective, 360 degree camera rotation, pre-rendered backgrounds, and live actors. Humor and comical pop-culture references accompany you throughout the entire game and guarantee that you will never get bored. So if you are looking for a not so serious oldschool adventure then this gem is for you.

Populous 3: The Beginning for the Mac!

Today Populous is the game focus. Populous and Populous 2 are already available for the Mac on GOG.com. Populous 3 – The Beginning was the only Populous game not ported yet. So here it is! Because of Populous 3, I made a game page for Populous and Populous 2 on this website as well. The games can be found now under the strategy section of the game ports. Enjoy!

In the third part of the Populous series, you control your shaman and the tribe of her followers in a difficult quest to conquer all 25 planets of a star system and ascend to godhood. For the first time in the series, the world is presented in true 3d, which at the time amazed both the players and the gaming press.The level of control you exert over your followers also takes you to a new level: you can order individuals or groups to perform certain tasks like gathering resources, constructing buildings, or attacking your enemies.

7.62 High Calibre for the Mac!

For today I have a Tactical strategy game for you called 7.62 – High Calibre. This game is a bit similar as Silent Storm and Jagged Alliance Back in Action. The trailer video below will show you some game-play (A noob is playing it there :P). Enjoy!

7.62 is a tactical action game, sequel to Brigade E5, similar to such classic titles as Jagged Alliance™, X-Com™, and Silent Storm™. A professional mercenary seeks for a Russian “businessman”, who stole a lot of money from his “colleagues”, then hid in a small country of Latin America to avoid inevitable punishment there. Soon the assignment turns into an intense and dangerous adventure, for there are many things that must be kept in mind – intricate political situation, confrontation between governmental military and rebels, not to mention a necessity to choose friends and foes wisely.

Freespace 2 for the Mac!

Today we have Space Simulator game in store! If you know Freespace, then you will surely enjoy Freespace 2! Made as well a Wrapper as a CrossTie for this game. As the Terran and Vasudan races finish rebuilding their decimated societies, a disturbance lurks in the not-so-far reaches of the Gamma Draconis system. Your nemesis has arrived… and they are wondering what happened to their scouting party… Take off with your spaceship and finish off the enemy for love of the motherland! Check out the game-play trailer to see some in-game action!

The game continues on the story from Descent: FreeSpace, once again thrusting the player into the role of a pilot fighting against the mysterious aliens, the Shivans. While defending the human race and its alien Vasudan allies, the player also gets involved in putting down a rebellion of those elements of Vasudan (Hammer of Light) and Human (Neo Terran Front) forces which don’t want to cooperate with one another.

Six more alternative Wrappers added!

As mentioned earlier, here 6 more Wrappers which will stand side by side with the CrossTies. I went back through the blog and took out the new (non-steam) game ports for which was no Wrapper available, and created a Wrapper for those as well. The Wrappers I did are: Etherlords  and Etherlords 2 which are 2 fantasy RPG/Strategy games, which by the way Warlords Battlecry 3 is as well. Fleet Command, a great overlooked sea war simulation game. Death to all Spies, an amazing stealth action game in WW2 times. And last but not least, on request, Red Alert 3 – Uprising!

Check out those game pages and find the two download buttons (Wrapper and CrossTie) accompanied by each-other in the slider! Enjoy!

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky for the Mac

To make the STALKER series complete, here S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Clear Sky! I made both a Wrapper as a Crosstie for the game because there is a non-steam version on GOG.com. Game worked just as S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat, quite well although a good videocard (512mb) is recommended. Check out the GOG Trailer below to see the gameplay.

Year 2011. Five years passed since the Second Disaster, which eclipsed the events of April 1986. The Zone is shaken by frequent and powerful blowouts, which move anomaly fields, opening new routes to previously inaccessible locations. Stalker factions fight for the new territories and key points. A lot of stalkers die, but newbies keep on arriving.

Three more alternative Wrappers for latest games!

As mentioned in earlier posts I will have alternative Wrappers for all new games as well (when possible and Steam games are excluded). This for the people who cannot effort Crossover, but are longing to play those games as well. In those cases the “How to install a game in Wineskin” video tutorial can be used for the install instructions.

The Wrappers I added today are the three games: AIM Racing, and the popular S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Call of Pripyat, and last but not least the amazing game Advent Rising! Enjoy the Wrappers!

Driver Parallel Lines for the Mac!

A very cool one for today: Driver Parallel Lines! An amazing GTA 3 like action game. I played it for a while and it is real fun! I used the GOG.com version of the game which is DRM free. The Gamersgate version contains TAGES DRM and will not work, so stick to the GOG.com version for this one. I created both a Wrapper and CrossTie for this one, this will happen for many more in the future. For the Crosstie you need  Crossover preinstalled. So if you haven’t  Crossover yet, then sign up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

Important:
To get the sound working go in the game to the sound options and set the Sound Card (none is selected at default), when thats done the sound will work and music as well in the game.

Take total control as New York’s most wanted wheelman. The perfect combination for high speed driving – fast cars, open level missions with no loading time, realistic physics and destructible environments. Build your perfect ride with custom body work, engine upgrades, tunable suspensions, custom paints and accessories like bullet proof glass and tinted windows. Shoot, smash and steal your way through NYC’s gritty underground using an arsenal of short and long range assault weapons. Get behind the wheel of 80 cars and motorcycles including old school classics and modern day marvels.

Banished for the Mac! (Update)

Update: Its seemed that the Wrapper worked fine on Nvidia but not on AMD Radeon and Intel Graphics Macs. Fixed that part now with the latest wrapper update of Banished! Works now on Intel Graphics, AMD Radeon and Nvidia! Enjoy!!

On request and just out for 2 days: Banished! Build a city with any layout you want with almost no restriction on when, what, and where you build. Keep the population happy and healthy by providing them with food and warm shelter. Watch the town grow as you assign 20 different jobs to build buildings, grow food, craft tools and clothing, and more! The game doesn’t work in Crossover yet so I made Wrapper for it. Crossover will stay primary on the site, but that doesn’t mean I won’t make any Wrappers now and then :). I won’t make for each game a new video anymore, only when some specific instructions are needed. Normally its just very basic: extract –> install game into wrapper –> set the start executable and play! If you don’t own the game yet, I strongly advise you to buy Banished on GOG.com which is DRM free. Check out the trailer below to get introduced to the game!

Banished is a city building game where you control a group of exiled people who are restarting their lives in the wilderness. They have only the clothes on their backs and a cart filled with supplies from their homeland. The townspeople work, build, get older, have children, and eventually die. Keeping them healthy, happy, and fed are essential to making a successful town grow. Any structure can be built at any time, provided that your people have collected the resources to do so.
