Norbyte Releases Universal Binary Game Updates
8:08 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Over the past couple of weeks Norbyte has released several Universal Binary updates for its collection of arcade block puzzle games, all of which feature gameplay reminiscent of classics in the genre. Downfall, Petal Palace, Spinnn, and Bloxter are now Intel Mac friendly.

Here's a description of the recently updated titles:

Downfall consists of over 30 different boards to play, with smooth 3D animations and endless replayability. All the boards have special blocks like indestructibles, dynamite sticks, snow shovels, wrecking balls etc. Keep in mind that each board requires its own tactics and skills to master!

Petal Palace takes you to an enchanted palace, surrounded by beautiful scenery where flowers grow in great abundance. Unfortunately, there isn't nearly enough space in the garden, so there's only one thing to do. You will have to pick the flowers by arranging them in lines, to keep the palace from being overgrown. Use any tools you may find to overcome obstacles. If you're good at picking the flowers, you will achieve bonuses and rewards that will help you in your task.

In Spinn you can move and spin falling game pieces and try to create horizontal lines, in any of the over 30 included games. These games are divided into four sets, each with its own style and special rules.

Bloxter is a fun arcade/puzzle game, that uses the latest technology to produce stunning 3D graphics. The logic and rules are similar to other "falling blocks" games like Tetris® and Columns™. Even if you've never played any of those games, Bloxter is very easy to learn. Drop colored blocks and try to form lines that will react and disappear!

The minimum requirement to play the games is Mac OS X 10.2. Follow the links below to learn more.
