Solarian II for OS X
8:31 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Old-school Mac gamers should be familiar with a little shareware title known as Solarian II. Due to customer requests, Stick Software has ported the popular shooter over to OS X, complete with graphics and sound effects intact.

Solarian II was first written about 15 years ago, and was one of the first color games for the new color Macs that came out in 1988. It ran happily for years, but Mac OS X broke it it never ran well under Classic. We kept getting email about this, and so we've ported it to Mac OS X. It's now a native Cocoa app (!), and should be good to go for another 15 years, we hope!
Solarian II currently requires OS 10.3 or better to run. Those interested in trying it out or registration info can find it at Stick Software's site.
