Save The Animals In Zoo Park
6:00 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Zoo Park from Merge Games is now available for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. The simulation puts players in charge of a program to rescue, rehabilitate, research, and promote understanding of a variety of animals. Zoo Park features more than 30 animals from all corners of the Earth.

Like any modern animal care facility in the 21st Century, you will need to run a professional programme of rescue, rehabilitation, research and conservation to promote understanding and care of all the animals under your control.

Of course, each animal type has its own list of requirements in terms of habitat, nutrition and care. You will need to address the individual needs of each one in order to run a successful and ethically sound zoo park.

Saying goodbye to the animals you have raised from new-borns is hard but as your sanctuary continues to grow, there will be plenty of new animals requiring rescue which you will be given the option to accept or not depending on your available resources at that time.

Be careful however. Expanding your sanctuary means that your workload will increase accordingly and you’ll need to be able to make sure your facility runs like clockwork in order to gain the all important popularity points from your visitors which determine the level of your success.

As well as animal care, another main task of Zoo Park is constructing a well thought out facility to best meet the requirements of both the animals and your visitors. You must construct the correctly sized habitats for each of your animals. A Koala bear won’t appreciate sharing an enclosed space with a tiger for example. Remember that each animal will also have several requirements which you’ll need to consider when mapping out your zoo park. Some species will favour a large pool of water to happily swim about in whilst others will enjoy a large amount of plant life to themselves. You’ll also need to consider their diet and how much space each animal will require. You’ll then need to hire staff to help you run the park.

As well as keeping your animals happy, healthy and rehabilitating them into the wild, the hoards of visitors will also need to be accommodated by constructing pathways so that they can see your animals, building toilet facilities, constructing cafes and ice-cream stands and a gift shop.

Can you rescue, rehabilitate and research your animals to promote animal welfare education whilst constructing the ultimate zoo park to keep all your charges and visitors happy?

Features:

  • You’ll care for over 30 animals from all four corners of the Earth
  • Each animal type has its own list of requirements in terms of habitat, nutrition and care.
  • Run a professional programme of rescue, rehabilitation, research and conservation to promote understanding and care of all the animals
  • Make sure your facility runs like clockwork in order to gain the all important popularity points from your visitors
  • Construct a well thought out park to best meet the requirements of both the animals and your visitors
  • Build the correctly sized habitats for each of your animals
  • Some species will favour a large pool of water to happily swim about in whilst others will enjoy a large amount of plant life to themselves
  • You must consider diet and how much space each animal will require
  • You’ll need to hire staff to help you run the park
  • Construct pathways so that your visitors can see your animals as well as toilet facilities, cafes, ice-cream stands and a gift shop
Requirements:
  • Mac OS X 10.6.6 or later
  • Intel Mac
Zoo Park is available now for $19.95 (USD).

Drox Operative: Invasion Of The Ancients Launches
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Soldak Entertainment has announced the release of Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients, the first expansion for the starship action RPG. Among other things the new add-on includes ancient invasions, space stations, persistent galaxies, the Scavenger race, new Talon, Legion, and Overlord monsters, and 19 playable subraces.

Drox Operative: Invasion of the Ancients is the first expansion for the unique action RPG Drox Operative. It adds ancient invasions, space stations, persistent galaxies, Scavenger race, new Talon, Legion, and Overlord monsters, 19 playable subraces, and much more. Drox Operative is a starship action RPG with warring alien races, fierce space battles, a dynamic, evolving galaxy, and co-op multiplayer for Windows and Mac.

Before the Drox ruled the galaxy, before they were even sentient, there were older races now known as the Ancients. Using their Operatives, the Drox crushed and enslaved most of these races. The rest fled known space. When the Drox turned on their own Operatives, the Drox were utterly destroyed. Newer races emerged and thrived in the power void, never knowing the menace waited. Seizing their chance, the Ancients are invading to take their rightful place in the galaxy, as rulers! Thirsting for revenge, the Ancients can't harm the extinct Drox, but they can crush the next best thing, the Drox Operatives.

The Ancient enemies are back! Can you defend the Drox Operative Guild and younger races against the Invasion of the Ancients?

Features:

  • Defend against ancient race invasions
  • Destroy or defend space stations (military and production)
  • Guide the evolution of persistent galaxies
  • Design components with socketable chips
  • Play as or against the new race, the Scavenger
  • Battle new Talon, Legion, and Overlord monsters
  • Solve new quests and equip new components
  • Drox Guild quests
  • Unlock and play as 19 subraces
Invasion of the Ancients is available now for $9.99. Learn more at the link below.

Trick, Treat, Or Game? Mac Gamer HQ Explores Scary Mac Games
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Mac Gamer HQ has released a new article exploring some of the best frightfest game titles Mac users can explore during the spookiest day of the year: Halloween. Titles like Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs and The Darkness 2 can be a good alternative to costumed wanderings in search of candy.

One of my favorite yearly celebrations is upon us. Yes, All Hallow’s Eve (or more commonly known as Halloween) is almost here. I don’t know about you but it’s getting harder and harder for me to properly celebrate this day. I am definitely too old to actually put on a costume and go trick-or-treating around. And I’m unfortunately getting too old for those fun drunken college costume parties…  Lucky for me, I found another way to properly celebrate Halloween: playing some really scary games on my Mac!

IMG Previews Pahelika: Revelations
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse

Inside Mac Games has posted a brief preview of IronCode Gaming's upcoming Pahelika: Revelations. The casual adventure game draws inspiration from the classic Myst putting players in the role of Sudesh, a novice adventurer who finds his dreams turned to nightmares when he returns home for some rest and relaxation.

Revelations comes after the first game in the series, Pahelika: Secret. After suffering your “normal” nightmare, you begin the adventure in a storage room. You soon find a hidden door, which ultimately leads you into a magical adventure to a wizard's castle, a dark haunted library, and much more. Each space you enter is nicely rendered, and full of detail. This makes for a pleasant space to search for items and figure out clues to solves the game’s puzzles. Some puzzles are easy to figure out, others might require finding a poem or other document and interpreting the text. Transition between areas of the game are done in a comic-like series of screens with voice overs that describe more and more of the story to you.
Check out the links below for more information.
