Hydorah and Maldita Castilla added to Porting Kit.

Great news! Two free games of locomalito.com games are added to Porting Kit and work just perfect :) I talk about Hydrorah and Maldita Castilla. Both games are good old classic games. One a horizontal space plane shooter and the other an oldschool platform arcade game. Really worth to check out. Have fun! The new game pages on Porting Kit can be found here... and here...

Hydorah: An evil force launched an invasion over the Omios star. Equip your ship, select a route and fight planet by planet against hordes of meroptians. Biomechanical enemies, space creatures, dangerous landscapes and climatic threats are waiting for you.

Army Men – Air Attack for Mac!

Armin Rosu was so kind to sent some WSI files for the CD games of Army Men. I ran into the CD game Army Men Air Attack last Saturday, so I could test and Port the game using his sent in WSI file, and it works great! It works even without the CD after a full install of the game. So get the Army Men game out of the closet and enjoy the nostalgia again on your Mac! Have fun! The new Porting Kit page for the game can be found here…

In Army Men: Air Attack, the evil Tan army is making a move into Green territory. Take command of Blade and his ragtag crew of chopper pilots as they fly one of four choppers Huey, Chinook, Super Stallion, or Apache through 16 missions of plastic carnage. Help them maneuver through perilous settings like the “Backyard” and the “Picnic.” When you get tired of seeing your buddies melted on the barbecue, call a friend to help you in the Cooperative Play mode. If sharing is not your thing, knock your friend’s chopper out of the sky in a head-to-head match up. Either way, with Army Men: Air Attack, it is real combat with plastic men.

Some Porting Kit game fixes!

Maybe you have noticed that sometimes a specific game name gets colored orange again. In that case this game has been re-uploaded with a specific change. Sometimes it may only bee something with the description, but sometimes it may also be an update of the game wrapper. It may be because of game fixes or performance improvements, but also if the the installer of GOG.com changed the path to the start exe file. That last one was the case of Heroes of Might & Magic 2. This has been fixed now.

Second, Live for speed! That game got an update to version S3_6M, which needed the download updated, but even then the game wouldn't run anymore because of graphical corruption and error messages. Well that is fixed now with this latest update.

Last but not least an update for Grand Theft Auto 2, which had a bug crashing after a very short while of play. That is fixed now with the latest update of the game in Porting Kit.

The Guild 2 – Renaissance and Pirates of European Seas added to Porting Kit!

The Guild 2 was already added to Porting Kit and there was a request to add Renaissance as well. Well I did more then that, because I added the Guild 2 - Pirates of the European Seas also :D Have fun!

For centuries Europe has been dominated by the church and nobility. On the shoulders of ordinary people the servants of god and the noble families justified their power and wealth. This was the incontrovertible, divine world order. A truly dark era…

Re-volt re-added to Porting Kit as free game!

Now Re-volt is not on GOG.com anymore and the game is now freely available on revoltrace.net, I re-added the game as a free game! So now everyone can enjoy this marvelous game! Enjoy!

The racing competitions we play are mostly stock tracks (such as Toys In The Hood, Ghost Town, Titanic, Toy World and Botanic Garden) and monthly changing custom tracks (new ones and classics such as PetroVolt, Venice, Rooftops, Helios, Re-Ville, RVTemple etc), normally using the Toyeca car (considered the best Re-Volt stock car based on handling and speed, although some prefer other cars like Adeon, Humma or Cougar).

S.W.I.N.E. for Mac added to Porting Kit

We keep on going adding free games at the moment! On request: S.W.I.N.E. is added to the Porting Kit! Although the game works just great even on my low-end Mac-book air, the in-game video’s/cut-scenes won’t show up in the game. So if you want to see them after all, you can watch this video with all cut-scenes in a row.

S.W.I.N.E is a humorous strategy game with two races fighting against each other. On one hand, we have the national army of pigs who have challenged the grounds for war, and on the other hand we have rabbits, who have been surprisingly over taken by the pigs maliciously. So you can choose one of the two sides and gain access to the campaigns and arms. In the game, you can win wars by recruiting new units.
