In an email to IMG staff Monday, UK development house, PomPom's lead programmer, Miles Visman announced that the OS X-only version of their newest game, Mutant Storm, has been released.

Based on the classic arcade game Robotron, Mutant Storm features a fully-3D OpenGL game engine complete with evil space mutants, enhanced special effects, and animated psychedelic backgrounds. Through a top-down interface, players command a ship blasting its way through innumerable waves of mutant hordes in eighty-nine individual levels. A head-to-head multiplayer mode is also available for co-operative gameplay.

Weighing in at just under 15 MB, the full version of the game, featuring all eighty-nine levels of gameplay is available for twenty euros or twenty dollars US from the RegNow website. A six meg demo, featuring nine levels of gameplay is available at IMG's sister site MacGameFiles.

The Mac version of the game is currently only available for OS X, and requires the installation of the Simple Direct Media Layer Package (SDL), which is included in the download.
