10:42 AM | IMG News | Comment on this story

Mac gamers who have groaned and complained for months about a dearth of Mac game demos are now swimming in downloadable goodness. Right on the heels of the Alice and Pillars of Garendell demos, we have another treat for you today -- a demo of Aspyr Media's Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, appearing at 5 PM Central time today.

The long-awaited demo for this port from PC (which was in turn a port from the console version) will be available for all of you that were tempted by this game, but delayed your purchase until you found out how well it would run and what the controls were like. A slim 22 MB download, the demo itself has identical system requirements to the full game:

The Tony Hawk Demo allows you to play an
unlimited number of 2-minute skate sessions. Other features, such
as multiplayer network games, the park editor, customized skaters,
and career mode (including saved games) are not available in the

  • Any iMac, G3 or G4.

  • Hardware 3D acceleration (ATI Rage Pro or better)

  • MacOS 8.6

  • CarbonLib (if running the OSX version of the game)

  • DrawSprocket

  • 233 MHz processor

  • 32 MB memory

  • OpenGL 1.1
As Apple touted during MWNY, this game is Carbonized for Mac OS X and performs quite well under Apple's next-generation OS. Watch for the demo at 5 PM Central Time today -- you will find it at MacGameFiles of course.

Oh, and by the way -- we've heard it on good authority that the string of big-name commercial demos is going to contine. Keep your eye on IMG tomorrow and early next week for even more highly-anticipated demos, including one that may make you rub your eyes in disbelief.
