    Does anyone play nanosaur? It comes incuded with new macs... The graphics are not bad, but I can't figure out what the objective of the game is....

    I think the game version is Nanosaur II....

    I think I looked at it once on the day I got my iMac, and I've never look at it again. It was confusing and the controls were annoying IIRC. I'll have another looking at in later in the morning.

    I tried it when I first got my Mac, nut as mentioned above I couldn't figure out the controls and I didn't really know what to do in the game. I do, however, play Marble Blast Gold which was included with my Mac.

    I've played it from time to time, not recently though.

    Point of the game is to collect the eggs placed around each 'map' and fly into the vortex with them one at a time. Once you've collected all the eggs on a map, you can proceed to the next level.

    I believe there's a help option in the game, which explains everything in greater detail.

    Dude Nanosaur 1 was so freaking awesome!

    There is a cheat (which I figured out myself) where if you go on top of a mountain and jump as high as you can you will get 999 ammo for every weapon and have full fuel for your jetpack!

    I played Nanosaur 2 a bit and had so much trouble with the controls I couldn't enjoy it. I kept crashing into Brontosaurses.

    Did anyone ever notices that in Nanosaur one (possibly two as well) the colours of the eggs matched the colours of the iMacs?

    The game does have some pretty decent graphics, but I, like others, didn't really get the point of the game. Oh well!

    It didn't come with my PB :( But I'm going to d/l the demo and see if I like it. I tried out Marble Blast Gold (which also didn't come with my PB :rolleyes: ) and loved it so much that I bought it.

    My son loves Nanosaur 2. But then again he's 3 and obsessed with dinosaurs. I'm not sure how to play it - other than collecting eggs to bring to the funnels. The graphics aren't bad but I'd rather play BF1942.

    In summary, good for kids. That's about it.

    I played it years ago when my sister got her G3 Bondi iMac. I have it on my G5 iMac now, but I haven't played it yet. I've only played Marble Blast.

    I started with Power Pete on my Performa 6300CD. I think Load Runner came with the Performa, because I remember playing that as well.
