    This is Round 2 of this original thread which was won by woxel1 Congrats.

    ROUND 2 !


    What was the first COLOR Mac game ever?

    Hint: only needed a mouse with one button to play


    there are ALOT of hints available for this one, and I just found a golden nugget of a hint that I can't believe its timing of this thread and the hint.

    And again, please dont just Google for an answer, this is a GUESSING game, not a Quiz Show or something. Its about remembering the ol days of mac gaming.

    Just wait for round 3, its a doozy.

    Hint: hitting anything caused you to "break" in the game

    I'm going to wildly guess and say Solarian II. It's only coming to mind because I found it on Versiontracker a while back and had a major nostalgia moment.

    One of the first games was Solarian II. now ported to OSX, but they think its still worth $25, dorks. Gimme a break. LOL, truly full belly LOL. - 1988

    Breakout - was from the late 70s. But wasnt a mac game perse, it was a port and they were truly numerous.

    hint - there is a sequel to it. MOOOOOOOO!

    Amazing what a cup of tea and a trip through your junk closet will do to get you thinking. I re-guess Crystal Quest.

    congrats.

    Crystal Quest is an action computer game for the Apple Macintosh and Apple IIgs. It was written by Patrick Buckland for Casady & Greene in 1987, and was ported to the IIgs in 1989 by Bill Heineman.

    It was notable for its fast paced gameplay, and for being the first game to support the colour displays on the Macintosh II.

    A new version of Crystal Quest was made available on Microsoft's Xbox Live subscription service for the Xbox 360 on February 7, 2006.

    look for the next game tomorrow.
