Mac Newbie... I wanna Play this old game on my mac.. How can I?

so i owned a mac when it was like an apple shaped mac and i used to play this game called squish

http://www.fantasoft.com/squishalien...cd.html#squish

anyways i downloaded it, and i click on it, and it says

You cannot open this Application "Squish 2.6.8"
because it is not supported on this system.

i am running a Mac Pro with the laltest OS.


my question is, is there a mac os 9 emulator for the mac os X so i can play this game? or is there any other way around this so i can play old games like these on my mac?

Unfortunately, you'll be better of buying a cheap G3 and running it on there.

can't find a game like scrabble blast to work on macbook

It seems that the mac is left out of the game place on aol, or any game site. There are a few games but not what I am looking for like scrabble blast delux. Anyone know of a place to download this game.

It's a little bit more complicated than that:

But as said, short of buying a PPC Mac, no, there isn't a way that's terribly simpler than Sheepsaver to get what you want.
