Mac Tropico to Include Extra Levels
6:00 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

A preview of Tropico posted by Apple reveals that the long-awaited Mac OS version of this dictator sim will not only be Carbonized for OS X but will also include at least two extra scenarios. PopTop's Phil Steinmeyer is quoted as saying these levels -- which were not found in the PC version -- will be accompanied by other unrevealed surprises. The rest of the article provides a decent overview of the unique features of this strategic simulation, its setting, music, and gameplay.


The Mac system requirements for Tropico are listed for the first time, and they seem very reasonable when compared to other recent games:

Minimum System Requirements:
 
  • 200MHz PowerPC G3
     
  • 64MB of RAM



    Recommended System Requirements:
  • 266 MHz PowerPC G3
     
  • 64MB of RAM
  • Read through the rest of Apple's preview for more general info on Tropico, and be sure to check out the brief but interesting movie of actual gameplay. Also be sure to look at IMG's quick report on a recent Mac beta of the game last week for a glimpse of what to expect from this game. Tropico is currently set for a release around Macworld New York next month.
