Bushfire for OS X Released
8:31 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Applelinks has noted the existence of a new Mac OS X compatible shareware game under the name of Bushfire. This game was created by Strange Flavour, authors of past Amiga titles Jetstrike and Base Jumpers, and is their very first Mac title. Quite wisely, they have Carbonized their offering to assure OS X compatibility (and of course it'll run under older OSes with CarbonLib installed).
The game itself resembles the venerable title Choplifter, in which one pilots a helicopter from a side-view, 2D environment. However, instead of blowing up enemies and rescuing hostages, a more environmentally friendly apprach is required:
Protect the experimental Goose Spruce forest with your firefighting helicopter and smoke jumpers. Beware though, strange things are afoot and itís more than just the odd dropped cigarette you have to watch out for.Strange Flavour lists their latest offering as "Strangeware" and price it at $3 for registration, though the unregistered version contains all the features. It is available for download at Strange Flavour's site, and weighs in at around 10.6MB.
