'Nanosaur' and 'Bugdom' have recently been re-released for modern systems by Iliyas Jorio, with permission from Pangea Software.

It would be wonderful to see 'Power Pete'/'Mighty Mike' or some of the later Pangea Games re-released as well...

Very cool. Hope to see Bugdom 2 at some point. Never actually finished that one.

EV: Override is getting a remaster: https://www.kickstar...ontier-override

Iirc Richard Moss mentioned that the rights for Ferazelís Wand were given back to Ben Spees (I think all the devs got the rights back), and apparently heís interested in porting it one day. Thatís my favorite Ambrosia game and Iíd be over the moon if it happened.

I've heard about the Nanosaur remake, but Bugdom was news to me. Cro-Mag Rally would also be a good candidate. I think it was one of Pangea's most polished games.

ive often thought that someone could make a fortune my remaking ambrosia's best games for iPhone as well as Mac, or even apple could buy the rights and make the games part of Apple Arcade.

id love to play maelstrom and barrack especially.

Maestrom was open-sourced and ported to Windows, Linux, and 64-bit Mac OS X (Intel). Stlll the same old textures, but it is still a lot of fun. https://www.libsdl.o...ects/Maelstrom/
(Apparently the Linux version has 2-player networked play, but I haven't tried it.)

I'd love updates to 'Cro-Mag Rally' and especially 'Otto Matic'.
Sadly none of Pangea's old games on the Mac App Store received 64-bit updates.

Those two (and 8 others) were ported to iOS, and it looks like they are still available.

Plus if you get an M1 (Apple Silicon) Mac, you can probably run them on your desktop. Possibly even with controller support, if that was added that to the iOS versions.
