Galactic Patrol for OS X in Beta
7:58 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

The folks at MonkeyByte have announced that their 3D take on the world of classic 80s arcade shooters, Galactic Patrol, is now in beta testing for Mac OS X. This means the popular shooter should soon be playable under Apple's newest operating system. The beta testing team is getting their copies now and it should be ready for public consumption once all the major hang-ups are found and resolved. Here's the news:

MonkeyByte.com is proud to announce that we have reached Beta on our Macintosh OS X port of the popular game Galactic Patrol! The development team has begun to send out the Beta to our previously selected beta testers and thank all our Internet friends for the wonderful response we received when looking for testers. Galactic Patrol OS X Gold coming very soon!!

"Galactic Patrol is our most popular game to date," says Yon Hardisty. "We are very excited to see this awesome classic game cross to a new operating system. OS X is the future of Apple and MonkeyByte.com is completely dedicated to supporting this future with all of our games."

For more information on Galactic Patrol, take a look at the MonkeyByte web site. A demo for Mac OS 9 users is available now if you haven't already tried it out.
