Updated Mac Classics
7:39 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
While we here at IMG try to keep you posted on the progress of many open-source projects which are actually updating older games (Marathon, Doom, etc), LowEndMac has a good new article giving an overview of many such revived titles. The author, Brian Rumsey, wrote in to let us know of this piece which covers such classics as Quake, Duke Nukem, the Descent series, Marathon, and the most recent addition of Hexen II. Here's an excerpt:
In addition to bringing back old memories, another nice thing about these games is that, for the most part, they should perform decently on relatively old hardware (compared to what many modern games are demanding). I'd expect that most of them will perform acceptably on almost any 603- or 604-based system with a 3D accelerator. Since I can't make thorough tests of these games on a wide range of systems, I would be interested to hear reports of how they run on pre-G3 systems. I would also be interested to hear of other older games which I may have missed which have 3D patches available.There are a few others that Brian might want to check out, like Heretic (also done by Brad Oliver), and the Mac Doom Legacy project. The article provides a nice overview, though, so be sure to give it a read.
