Welcome to the “Pinball Space Cadet” for Mac game page. This page contains information + tools how to port Space Cadet in a few simple steps (that even a noob can understand) so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application. Check also one of the other over 1000 game ports on this website! Check the homepage to search and for latest news! You can port games using Porting Kit (free), or the commercial (more professional software) Crossover or Parallels Desktop (a very easy to use Virtual Machine with Windows 11) both have a 14 day trial period. Feel free to use the application which fits you best or use a combination of the 3 apps.
Install/Porting is simple:
1. Get Porting Kit or Crossover if you don’t have it yet.
2. Then in Porting Kit search the game on the library –> server tab and click install.
3. After installation of the game, “exit” the installer.
5. Click “Play” to start the game! Have fun!
Alternatively there is also Parallels Desktop (a very easy to use Virtual Machine with Windows 11 (free trial of 14 days)) where the game will work fine as well. More info about that up here: https://www.paulthetall.com/parallels-desktop/
Important: You can use the menu bar to select your options or use the f1-f10 keys when that option is selected in your keyboard config in preferences on your mac. Unfortunately Music is not working, only the sound FX.
