Bushfire Updated to 1.07
10:32 AM | Eddie Park | Comment on this story

Strange Flavour, the fine folks responsible for the popular shareware game Bushfire, have recently updated their work to version 1.07. For those unfamiliar with this title, Bushfire has players combating forest fires with a helicopter with a play scheme very similar to the Apple ][ classic Choplifter.

This update adds some minor tweaks as well as some new game features, including recording times for fastest level completions for those of you that must measure yourself against the exploits of others.

In other Strange Flavour news, apparently Bushfire has been so popular that they're currently looking to upgrade their current web host, particularly since they note that they have a new title on the way. Here's a clip from their homepage:

Bushfire has been a little too successful! The massive amount of downloads overwhelmed our hostís server last week, causing a meltdown of one of the routers (which is why we had the outages and slow download speeds).

This means weíre probably going to have to look at beefing up our hosting a little (especially with our new game on the way soon). Unfortunately, thatís likely to cost us money (which we donít have much of), so please (please, please, please) send in your registration fee for Bushfire if you havenít already (and of course, if you liked it), or use Fairtunes to send it to us.

They also note that "soon to come" is more music for Bushfire.

If you haven't tried Bushfire yet, be sure to give it a whirl. It runs great on both OS X and OS 8.6 and above with an updated CarbonLib. MacGameFiles currently has both the full version and the 1.07 update for download. If you do like it, be sure to consider sending in the measly $3 ($4 if paying through Fairtunes) that Strange Flavour asks for, so that they will continue to make great titles in the future for the Mac OS.
