Stupid AppleScript Games Updated
9:01 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Stupid AppleScript Games, a freeware game collection authored byMatt Garrison and Kynan Shook, has recently been updated to version 1.5. As the name implies, this freeware product is a collection of simple games written in AppleScript, including Blackjack, Echo, War, Guess the Number, Rock-Paper-AppleScript, Tic-Tac-Toe, Hangman, Scrambler, Matcher, Pico-Fermi-Bagels, Poker, Crazy Eights, and Eight Ball. Most of the games are single-player, though some are two-player and no-player games as well.

Here's what's new in this version:

  • Added a new game, Crazy Eights
  • Added a new game, Eight Ball
  • Added a timer feature to War
  • Released an OS X compatible package

The file is modest in size (111k) and comes in both Classic and OS X flavors. To run it, one simply needs a Mac with AppleScript and either Standard Additions or Display Dialog scripting addition (most Macs will probably have these installed already). It is currently available for download at VersionTracker.
