Pangea Software has announced the availability of Cro-Mag Rally, their ground-breaking 3-D racing game for the Mac. In addition, Macgamefiles.com is now hosting the Cro-Mag Rally demo. This whacky console-style racer features blazing-fast 3D action, split-screen competition and power-ups to spice up the gameplay. Here's a snippet from the official press release:

“Cro-Mag Rally is an incredibly entertaining racing game, suitable for all
ages, and there is nothing else like it for the Mac,” said Brian Greenstone,
President and CEO of Pangea Software. “We are proud to be developing games exclusively for the Mac, and excited that Cro-Mag Rally, with its dazzling visuals and adrenaline pumping action, will be one of the first games available for Mac OS X.”

“Macs are the ultimate consumer gaming computers, with blazing ATI graphics now standard on all iMacs and iBooks,” said Clent Richardson, Apple’s vice president of Worldwide Developer Relations. “We’re thrilled that Mac users can enjoy the exciting new Cro-Mag Rally right now, and enjoy an upgrade to even more enhanced graphics performance with the Mac OS X version early next year.”

In Cro-Mag Rally the user simulates a speed-hungry caveman named Brog who races through the Stone, Bronze, and Iron Ages in primitive vehicles such as the Geode Cruiser, Bone Buggy, Logmobile, and Trojan Horse. Brog has at his disposal an arsenal of primitive weaponry ranging from Bone Bombs to Chinese Bottle Rockets and Heat Seeking Homing Pigeons.

Cro-Mag Rally includes single-player racing, where a single player races
against the computer, as well as several multi-player modes including Tag, Capture the Flag, and Survival. Two players can play on a single computer in split-screen mode, or up to 6 players can play over a network.
The press release also notes that a free upgrade for Mac OS X, Apple’s next-generation operating system, will be available early next year.

The demo weighs in at 40 MB and contains two single-player courses from the full game. It requires a 233 Mhz G3, 64 MB of RAM, and 6MB of VRAM (4MB with an AGP-equipped Mac).
