Activision Anthology Mac Port a Possibility
2:08 PM | Jean-Luc Dinsdale | Comment on this story

As reported by PC gaming website IGN, Ken Love, game producer at Activision, has recently posted a thread at Atari Fan Website AtariAge, suggesting that there is a good chance that his company's Activision Anthology might be ported to the Mac.

Here's a quote from the post:

Still a little uncertain as to whether or not Anthology will make it to X-Box or not. The outlook at the moment though, does look good. Whether it's published by Activision or not, I don't know. It's even looking better that it'll end-up on the PC and Mac platforms. If that happens, you can look for a "REMIX" version of the title. That meaning that you'll get a few more games, video footage, 'new' cartoons and maybe some extra perks that the PS2 version didn't quite get. "Better Controller Support." I'm actually looking forward to working on it, now that I don't have all the pressure on me like as I did with the first one. Same for the development schedule. I plan on fixing everything that went wrong with the PS2 version. I wasn't very happy with the final REWARDS system, but that was out of my hands.
Activision Anthology is a compilation set of forty-eight Activision titles originally prodcued for the Atari 2600, including such classics as Pitfall!, Kaboom, Chopper Command, and Stampede. The game's setting pits you in an early-80's bedroom, complete with 13" RHF TV set with bunny ear antennas. Players get to navigate the cartridge rack and play their favorite Atari 2600 titles while listening to an impressive soundtrack consisting of twelve "classic" tunes from the eighties.

Stay tuned to IMG for further news on the progress of this game to the Mac.
