A new update for Mac Games Arcade, the new digital download application for Mac games, today received a significant update bringing it to version 1.0.5. Among the new features are the ability to add your own games to Mac Games Arcade and enhanced downloading.

Mac Games Arcade's Tuncer Deniz explains, "One of the more requested features we got from users is they wanted to add their own existing games to Mac Games Arcade and then use Mac Games Arcade as a launching pad for 'all' their games. Now users can go to 'My Games' and simply drag and drop their own games into the My Games window and it'll magicially show up."

Mac Games Arcade has also been enhanced with a number of updates to its download manager. Users can now quit the app and resume downloads when they re-open the app. More importantly, if the user has download problems such as time outs, drop outs, lost connections, Mac Games Arcade will now automatically fetch your download when your internet connection resumes.

And finally, as it approaches nearly 1/2 million downloads of its app since the launch in late December 2008, Mac Games Arcade has announced it will begin working on version 2.0 in the coming weeks. "We've had just a great response to the app, but we want to make it even better. In 2.0 we plan on adding a buddy list, live chatting, achievements, gifts, news, specials, live notifications, and much more.
Mac Games Arcade is available as a free download from the Mac Games Arcade web site. The application is a 2 MB download. Mac Games Arcade requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or later.
