glTron Released for OS X
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A new version of the open-source project glTron has been released, allowing users to play this game inspired by the movie Tron as a native OS X application. This 3D adaptation of the popular 80's movie uses OpenGL, though (like many other Carbon games) it prefers to run in a window currently. We're sure fullscreen support will be available in a later release.


This version of glTron is separate from the official site, and we've received word that the author of this port is also helping out with the Mac version of the freeware space sim Parsec. It's encouraging to see new developers working to bring games to OS X, as it gives us less reason to boot up with OS 9. Head over to MacGameFiles now to download the app and also be sure to try out the Classic version if you haven't already. Both downloads are only around 3MB.
