Does anybody know where to get Barney Blaster???

Okay, does anybody remember that old barney blaster game?

It was just like asteroids, but you shot at floating barneys instead of asteroids,

Anyways, I've been looking for that game online for a while now, and I can't find it for download anywhere but one place that wants you to sign up for something for $12, I know it's not much, but I'm not sure if the download on the site: http://www.zooass.com/whatever/beast/ is even for the game, or if it's for "barney carnage" whatever that is.....

and there is a guy on ebay selling shareware disc from years ago that have the game on them,

It's my understanding that the original game was freeware, that was avaliable for download on the author's site (which isn't up anymore),

Would this game even work on a newer mac running OSX tiger? Am I totally waisting my time?

that would be great if you could find it!

I've looked everywhere for this game, it would be awesome if someone would put together a "classic" mac game compilation or something like that

okay, I found an old shareware disc that has the game, and a friend that might have the game on his old powerbook

My questions is now: How do I get this game to run on my iMac??? (it's running osx tiger)

Am I correct to assume that I need an emulator? for OS 9 or ??? (this is what my friend suggested) I have searched and I can't seem to find anything other than game console emulators (psx, nintendo, sega etc.)

I am kind of new to this whole mac thing (after being on the dark side for way too long), i've run emulators in the past on pc's, and I'm assuming that it'll be the same on a mac

thanks in advance for any help

What kind of iMac do you have? If it's a G5 or earlier, then just install and run Classic (it would be on one of the installation discs). If it's an Intel iMac, you're out of luck unless you want to buy an OS 9 CD from eBay or something and try SheepShaver (an emulator). This may or may not work for that game since it's not 100% compatible and has some bugs. Although even with Classic on a PPC Mac, it might not work since Classic isn't 100% compatible either.

sorry for the bump, but I was looking for this game too and google led me to this thread. Do you still have the game, or know where to get it?

I only remember the Screen Saver. But what a glorious screen saver. You'd need something like SheepSaver to run it on a modern Mac though. I might be able to bundle up my SheepSaver config, PM me if you are interested.
