    I know that most people here know about the site for abandoned old Mac games (Macintosh Garden) here: http://mac.the-underdogs.info/

    However the site is missing two programs that are crucial for gaming and they are Cheat II and Pandora's Box 1.1

    As a favor to those who have gone berserk looking for these programs lately, they can be downloaded here, I got them off my 8500:

    http://rapidshare.com/files/176845313/PandorasBox.sit.hqx

    These are both SHAREWARE. With that I want to let it be known, they are not mine, I do not support them, I do not know the authors and they might still expect a donation for them. It is, of course, the users responsibility to check the info provided in them :)

    If these programs refuse to run or have errors, please remember to increase the memory in the "get info" box in the Finder to 3MB or so ;)

    Old skool!

    Wow - you're going back some - 80% of people on these forums won't know what 68K is!

    I can't help you, but good luck!

    Hmm, I can't live without my old games

    Well, people nowadays might say "like there aren't games out there"
    for me it is almost like.

    Games nowadays stink, and I mean that in a big way. Game nowadays have to be in 3D, about war, about shooting, and gansta type of mentality.

    The last great games I played were Captain Bumper and Bugdom 2 but after those there really aren't any good worthy games out there.

    I found that I had at least 300 reliable 68k games that are really worth going back to:

    Exile 1, 2 and 3
    Return To Zork
    Zork Nemesis
    Zork Grand Inquisitor
    Bubble Trouble
    Sierra's Ultra Pinball
    Loom
    Sim City Classic
    etc.

    No game nowadays compare to any of those. Or at least I would be grateful if someone pointed me in the right direction.

    I think you are absolutely right. Though I do enjoy some new games, nothing can beat the "feel" of those old classics. The Sim City's were probably my favorite. What ever happened to the "Mac Cubed" discs??

    Ahh, the classics...

    Oh its a shame, like I mentioned, yes games are not like they used to. The Sim Cities were; WOW, I mean those were the days you were playing a game until 5am! And I couldn't wait to wake up to get back to it. Of course that was in my teen years and as people grow older it is harder to move on to the new era. I am not ashamed to admit it!

    I did, however, find that Spiderweb Software is still making the "Exile" type of role-playing games which are worth a look into. And truly I am sorry that those are the only ones I can actually recommend for this era which are OS X native.

    Take a closer look in their website http://www.spiderwebsoftware.com/
    I really hope they keep doing well and they don't disappear like the Casady & Greene folks. Wow, do you remember that? Poor guys.
