    Hi
    I have an old CD rom called 1000 games. It has about 1000 li'l shareware demos and such. My favorite mac game right now is Starcraft. Me and my peeps love it. Just thought I'd let everyone know.

    Starcraft is not shareware. It's a part of a whole series from Blizzard Entertainment (makers of Warcraft III, Diablo II, etc.).

    lol No problem. I just wanted to let you know that since it's not shareware you can get buy the full version and the expansion for $20 today in a pack. It's a very fun game!

    I remember getting the shareware version of Starcraft all those years ago, it was almost unheard of to have a 170 MB shareware game!

    I bought the full version shortly after, when I found it for cheap on eBay. I think that was the first and last time I used eBay (a local site called Trade Me sprung up shortly afterwards).

    A cool remake...

    I'm sure this has been posted somewhere around here before, but if you liked Choplifter, Chopper is a great remake!
