Apple Feature - Arcade Gaming on the Mac
9:50 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
Apple has posted a recent gaming feature on their website. Titled No Need for Quarters: Arcade Gaming Lives on the Mac, it focuses on MacSoft and its current string of revamped arcade classics such as Breakout, Centipede, Qbert, and even the old original Pong.
The titles themselves are old, but the games themselves are quite new. Everything has been redone in 3D graphics, and a variety of new game modes has been applied to each to make them more appealing. Want an example? The paddle in Breakout, nothing more than a rectangle in the original game, now sports roving eyes and the ability to run around on its end when necessary.
Included with the article are some thoughts by MacSoft's Al Shilling as well as some great screenshots of the featured titles. The article itself is well worth a look, and it's nice to see Apple supporting the gaming scene on the Mac as well.
