9:44 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story
Kirk Baker of Xavagus Prime Software last year re-released an updated version of a classic arcade game called OIDS. The original was released back in 1991 by FTL Games, a company Baker had worked for back in the early 90's. The re-release of OIDS was well-received expect for one thing: no Mac OS X version. On Friday, however, Xavagus released the long-awaited Mac OS X version.
Here's from on the OS X version from the Xavagus Prime web site:
That's right, the long-awaited release of a version of OIDS for Mac OS X is finally here. OIDS.X is compatible with Mac OS X version 10.1.3 or higher. It can run in thousands or millions of colors modes. OIDS.X uses OpenGL for lightning fast graphics and smooth gameplay. All of the sounds have been recreated, (some of them are new) in 16-bit CD-quality. All of the graphics have been redone by Drew Pauley, Bill Densmore and Kirk Baker. There are new visual effects like larger stars, galaxy images in the background, particle effects and much improved explosions.The Mac OS X version of OIDS weighs in an 9.7 MB and is available for download from our sister site, Macgamefiles.com.
