8:59 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Today, Inside Mac Games released Game Doctor 1.3.3, the largest collection of hints, cheats, walkthroughs, and other game enhancements (called "prescriptions") available for the Macintosh.
Here are a few of the program's features:
- Over 1000 prescriptions, with more to follow!
- Over 100 game patches not available anywhere else.
- More than ten prescription types, including:
- Text prescriptions with embedded sounds, pictures, files, and Internet links.
- Patch prescriptions that automatically locate and duplicate the target file.
- Progressive Walkthrough prescriptions that use the Universal Hint System.
- An open architecture that lets anyone create prescriptions using simple, intuitive editors.
- Automatic compression for smaller prescription files.
- Direct links to game publishers from within prescriptions.
- Comprehensive online help and help balloons.
- Commercial look and feel at a shareware price.
Game Doctor is available either as a full download or, for those with slower Internet connections, as a smaller download without the strategy guides and walkthoughs. A Game Doctor registration is $10 and can be ordered through our online store. Game Doctor registration is also included if you subscribe to the MacGames CD.
For current users of the program, an April '02 update is also available to grab and import into your current list of prescriptions. This update contains new prescriptions for many games, including:
- 9: The Last Resort - Hints & Cheats
- Baldur's Gate II - FAQ
- Black & White - FAQ
- Black and White - Tips
- Diablo 2 LOD - Mercenaries

- Icewind Dale - FAQ

- King's Quest 3 - Walkthrough

The April '02 update is only needed for users with an older version of Game Doctor. Those downloading the full version 1.3.4 will get all of these prescriptions included. Head over to our sister site MacGameFiles to begin downloading.
Look for a Carbonized version of Game Doctor (we swear) as well as a new prescription update sometime next month.
