PopCap Releases Two New Games
10:22 AM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

On Wednesday, Java programming hut PopCap Games released another two games for Mac OS X: Mummy Maze Deluxe and Seven Seas Deluxe.

Created by PopCap game designers Jason Kapalka and Richard Cresswell, the games, originally coded in Java as Web-based puzzles, have been ported to Mac OS X by the Omni Group.

The games are updated re-makes of popular "classic" games. Based on the old puzzle game "Theseus And The Minotaur", Mummy Maze Deluxe features a hapless archeologist trying to escape from a cursed Egyptian pyramid:

The goal of Mummy Maze is to make your way through the treacherous chambers of an Egyptian pyramid to claim the treasure waiting at the top. The only problem? The pyramid is riddled with traps, infested with deadly scorpions, and haunted by relentless mummies. It'll take all your skill and nerve to outwit the challenges of the Mummy Maze!
Seven Seas Deluxe, reminiscent of the Dr. Who-inspired classic puzzle game "Daleks", puts players at the helm of a ship trying to escape the clutches of multiple pirate ships:
You control the White Galleon, and your goal is to eliminate all the Pirate Ships on each level. You can destroy them with your Cannons, or lure them into collisions with island reefs and each other. But beware! There are smarter pirates lurking out there, along with even more dreadful things.
Both games, which require OS X 10.1 or later and a 400 Mhz G3 or greater processor, are availbale for download from the PopCap Games' Mac web page. Registration fees of $19.95 and $14.95 respectively are required to unlock all levels of the game as well as enabling the games' high scores features.

Stay tuned to IMG for further news of PopCap games releases for the Mac.

**Please note: As of this writing, the PopCap Games Mac web page required some bug-fixing. Players wanting to download either games from the PopCap web site will have to control-click on the games' links and chose "Download Link To Disk" from the contextual menu.
