Old-School OS X Software
3:59 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

MacCentral found a new page posted at Casady & Green (the company famous for programs like Conflict Catcher and SoundJam) which details their gaming plans for OS X. One of their first and largest titles is Zone Warrior II, a 3D space-combat flight simulator. They have updated the $15 program, Carbonizing it to run on OS X as well. Here are just a few of its features:


  • Real planet pictures and star maps
  • Smooth 3D space-flight simulator
  • Fully textured graphics rendered real-time
  • 256 colors, display from 640 pixels wide up to 1024
  • Arcade action - shoot everything that moves through space Gouraud-shaded

In addition to Zone Warrior II, Casade & Greene will also be porting such Mac classics as Glider Pro, Crystal Crazy, and Step On It!. Many old-school Mac fans have probably wasted away many an hour at Glider Pro or Crystal Crazy, so it's great to see them making the transition to OS X.


Beta versions of Glider Pro and Step On It! are available for download now from the company's web site. Zone Warrior II is also available in its final version. There is no exact word on a Carbon copy of Crystal Crazy yet, but we'll keep you posted. Head over the Casade & Greene site now for more info.
