Silver Wrapper update!

There was mentioned a problem on the forums about Silver installing it into the wrapper, so even though I did not had the issue myself, I updated the wrapper with a later engine and improved the mouse movement/handeling in the game to perfect :) So if you don’t own Silver yet, you can get it from GOG.com and install it into the wrapper. If you already owned the game and experienced any issues in the latest wrapper, then try this one. Have fun!

Changes:
– Better mouse handling in the game.
– Issue with installing the game (if you had one) into the wrapper should be fixed.
– Paulthetall.com branded Icon

ShinyLoot joins as game sponsor on Paulthetall.com!

ShinyLoot joins as game sponsor on Paulthetall.com!

Good news, we have another game sponsor who joined the crusade. The new sponsor is ShinyLoot! ShinyLoot is a game distributor (with about 300 games at the moment) focused on especially Indie games and more, which contain no DRM or in a few cases uses a serial. They claim to be anti-DRM which is in my opinion THE way of thinking, just as GOG.com does. You can read their complete vision about it up here…. Their game collection contains Windows games from which quite a number for the Mac as well. Because they are indie focused, they have quite a number of games in their collection GOG.com and Gamersgate doesn’t have. So this is a nice extra besides Gamersgate and GOG.com. They will sponsor me as well (just like Gamersgate and GOG.com) games so I can test and use them to port those to the Mac.

I made a banner on the blog sidebar to show they are an official sponsor now. Welcome aboard ShinyLoot!

Maldita Castilla for the Mac!

Besides Hydorah, I have done Maldita Castilla as well! Maldita Castilla is a great old school action platform game! Its gameplay brings you as well back in the time of Megaman and Roque look-a-likes! Another cool thing about it is, that it’s free of charge! Why waiting? Download the wrapper from the slider and start playing this free game!

Maldita Castilla is an action arcade game full of myths from Spain and the rest of Europe. The graphic style is raw, made pixel by pixel with a limited color palette, like in the old days, and displayed through a dirty old monitor effect. Also, Gryzor87 composed the music emulating the Yamaha YM2203 sound chip, so that the game has real arcade sound. It pays homage to classic arcade games from 1985-1987 like Ghost’n’Goblins, Tiger Road, Black Tiger, Shinobi, Rygar, Karnov, Trojan and many others… taking influences from medieval paintings and places, and inspired by the best chivalry book ever: The Amadis of Gaul.

Hydorah for the Mac!

Tonight we go back in time…Who remembers Space Mambow or Nemesis on the MSX? I played that game a lot with my older brother those days. Now you can relive that time with a nice look-a-like :) Its simple but still addicting to beat your highest score and defeating the bosses! Another cool thing about it is, that it’s Free! Why waiting, download, extract and play! Hydorah is a Windows freeware game developed by Locomalito, which I ported to the Mac. Watch the trailer below to feel the old gameplay again….

Choose the path to follow and fight planet by planet against hordes of meroptians. Hydorah features lots of short and intense levels with fantasy spacial landscapes, unlockable weapons, secrets, and a large library of enemies and bosses. There is a single dificulty level, based on the 80’s standards. It can be hard, but with every beaten level there will come the glory.
