ComputerUser Examines OS X Gaming
6:00 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story
As the popularity of Mac OS X grows, so too does its library of software. Determined to disprove the myth many Windows users believe about the Mac lacking quality games, ComputerUser has recently published the first of a two-part series by Dennis Sellers devoted to Mac OS X gaming. Titled Gaming for Mac OS X, the feature covers a variety of well-known Mac game publishers and the games they've provided for OS X users.
Besides the usual gamut of popular favorites like Aspyr and Ambrosia, lesser known developers such as Dark Shadow Software Limited are covered:
Currently Dark Shadow Software Limited has one Mac OS X game shipping: "Star Conquest." It's already Mac OS X-compatible, but an update (version 1.2) is planned for early 2002. "Star Conquest" is a turn-based strategic wargame. It can be played in single-player, multiplayer, or network-game modes. The objective is to guide your species in its expansion to all corners of the known universe. You start with two or more populated planets and a small number of starships. Using these ships, you have to explore and colonize other star systems.Anyone interested in seeing another take on the current state of OS X gaming should find this ComputerUser feature quite interesting.
