C&C Red Alert for Mac OSX

Game Details:

Red alert is an amazing game which is played a lot even after a Decade :) This page contains information + tools how to port this game so you can play it on your Mac just like a normal application using the Porting Kit. The original Red Alert game is 16bit and only worked using Porting Kit on Mac OS Mojave 10.14 and below…..Instead there is the free game OpenRA. This amazing piece of software includes the full games including multiplayer :D ;D, you want to play the original missions and see the video briefings? No problem, its all included. Its the whole package and more!!! And Yes, it also works on M1/M2 Apple Silicon Macs!

OpenRA is FREE and can be downloaded on the OpenRa download page. Open the disc Image and move the games to your apps folder and enjoy!

Game Description:
OpenRA is an open source project that recreates and modernizes classic real time strategy games, like Red Alert, Command & Conquer, and Dune 2000.OpenRA’s 10th Anniversary Trailer (2017) We’ve developed a flexible game engine (the OpenRA engine) that provides a common platform for rebuilding and reimagining classic 2D and 2.5D RTS games. The OpenRA engine is not restricted by the technical limitations of the original games. It includes native support for modern operating systems (like Windows 10, macOS, and Linux) and screen resolutions without relying on emulation or hacks, and integrated online multiplayer.

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. More info about that up here: https://www.paulthetall.com/parallels-desktop/
