City Life 2008 for the Mac!

City Life 2008 is the predecessor of Cities XL. It is also released by the same publisher Focus Interactive. Cities XL 2011 and Cities XL Platinum were already ported here, but now this one is added as well. I added a gameplay trailer below to show you the game play a bit. City Life 2008 is a must have for City builder lovers and a cheap alternative for Cities XL and as a bonus, on sale as we speak for only $4,- !

City Life is a next-generation City Builder. Its 3D game engine provides a level of detail and animation unprecedented in the City Builder genre and total freedom of construction. From superb villas in residential neighbourhoods to imposing skyscrapers in the financial district, design, construct and develop the city of your dreams. Provide comfort and satisfaction for your citizens by offering them work, health care, entertainment facilities, and much more and ensure that your city’s coffers are brimming. It’s up to you to manage this city efficiently, ensuring booming development while at the same time regulating the very delicate issues of pollution and traffic. Let peace reign between the six unique subcultures, or pay the price if the situation deteriorates into conflict, riots, and, in the worst-case scenario, fires.

Take part in the whole thing: from Cyrenaika and across hundreds of kilometres of desert battles all the way to the capture of Tobruk and the battle of El Alamein. The game allows you to control both the Axis and the Allied forces across a dozen missions.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
