Aspyr Media has announced the re-release of Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation and Tomb Raider: Chronicles through its Game Agent online store. For a limited time the boxed titles include discounted shipping for one game, or free shipping if the customer purchases both.

UPDATE: These Tomb Raider titles are from Aspyr's back catalog of PowerPC games. They are not supported on Intel Macs.

To celebrate the release of the new Tomb Raider game, Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light, we’ve brought a couple of our own Tomb Raider games out of retirement. Oldies, but goodies, you can now pick up Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation (Mac) for only $4.99 and Tomb Raider: Chronicles (Mac) for only $9.99.

Of course, these are the boxed versions only, and we know it’s a pain to pay for shipping, but that’s why we’re implementing a very special shipping promo this week only! Between now and the end of the day (11:59 CDT) Friday, August 20, you can get fantastic shipping discounts on both Tomb Raider: Chronicles (Mac) and Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation (Mac) (and potentially your whole GameAgent.com order!). For each Tomb Raider game added to your cart, shipping will be discounted by $4.50, meaning that by adding both Tomb Raider games, you’ll be eligible for FREE SHIPPING!

Take advantage of these deals before these games return to their gaming tombs!

Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation (Mac), $4.99 — Enemies, old and new, lurk at every turn, as Lara must overcome ingenious puzzles, the most infernal traps ever devised, and evil from beyond the grave. Experience heart-stopping action in your quest to guide Lara through her dazzling Egyptian adventure.

Tomb Raider: Chronicles (Mac), $9.99 — After the memorial service of Lara Croft, her friends gather at Croft castle to reminisce about her past exploits, providing new adventures.

Do either of these run on any current Macs (let alone any Macs that have been released in the last 4 year)?

The games are supported on PPC only... Just like the Starwars battle front in the previous post. Sounds like they are just trying to flush out old stock.

Should work with Rosetta; at least Chronicles does according to the Rosetta topic.

The point is there will be people who don't understand what Power PC only support means. So many Mac newbies are out there and these products are being sold as "new" reissues without any information on their compatibility with modern Macs.

Shame on Aspyr for pulling this stunt. Shame on Inside Mac Games for not doing any reporting to make this clear for its readers.

I really miss when this site used to do actual reporting rather than reposts of press releases and other peoples' blog entries.

Hmm, don't take the Rosetta topic as gospel though: for example, the recent sale on "Homeworld 2" which is technically supposed to work under 10.6 (even got a v1.1.1 patch, natch) just doesn't. Caveat emptor or whatever that Latin phrase is.

If anyone has suggestions on how HW 2 might be persuaded to run under Rosetta welcome of course.

It's a shame to see Aspyr rumbling towards extinction in such a grievous fashion. I hope it's not bumming out Glenda and Brad (and the other folks who made them the premier Mac porting house) too badly.

Coug-it: you rock! After deselecting the "Hardware mouse acceleration" check-box, the game runs just fine. Such a simple fix! I can't understand why Aspyr's support didn't suggest it. But anyhoo, you have my complete respect. Live long and all that other stuff.
