    I remember playing a few different mac games in the late 90s when i was 3 or 4.
    We had a few different discs that had a collection of games on them. A few games that were on the discs were Snood and Bloodbath: At Red Falls. I have searched the internet for the past hour trying to find this disc of games but I have had no luck.

    I do remember a game (can't remember the name of it) in which you were in a sort of space ship thing, but you were on some planet flying around and shooting enemies. There were 3 different levels (that I remember). In the first one you were on a pretty normal planet, and you just flew around and shot at other ships and at the end of the level you had to fight a sort of boss in a arena type of place.
    In the second level you were on a planet (I think that it was brown) and you were stationary and enemies would come at you and you shot them.
    In the third level it was like the first (you could fly around) but it was extremely chaotic. There were ships everywhere shooting and it was nearly impossible.

    Another game I remember was called Hyperball or something like that. It was (from what I remember) like that brick breaker game.

    Another game I remember was a platformer where you were a little guy (you might have been some kind of monkey or gorilla) and you controlled him with the arrow keys only (i think) and you would jump around and avoid obstacles and stuff.

    It would be greatly appreciated if anyone could help in my search for these games or even better the whole game compilation disc.

    Thank you

    Snood is available

    Hi Wozby,

    Long time since I last visited this forum. Anyway, Snood is now on the Mac App Store - it is called Snood 2011. It is also available for iPhone/iTouch and iPad.

    Good luck saving Snoods!

    BTW, if anyone does try Snood 2011 and likes it, please write a review - the game is kind of stuck until we get a handful of positive reviews.

    You might wanna read this:

    Because promoting your own commercial sold app is against the rules on this forum.

    Also, there is a Snood on app store for less than $1, but the linked version is $7.

    That is a little heavy handed no? The OP described a game that sounds like the original Snoods game so linking to the new and official version of the game is more of a reply to a legitimate question than posting a promotional thread (like the rules prohibit).

    I am not saying that people promoting stuff in forums should not be warned but in this case it does look like they had a valid reason.

    Also just FYI the only official Snood game (with rights to use the name etc) is the one linked to their might be some games that look like Snood but there is only one legitimate and licensed Snood game.

    Yeah, the OP asked about the game, specifically. It's not like Snood Guy started his own thread trying to generate sales and reviews like those stupid drive-by spam posts linking to windows executables or that thread from a kid talking about how a flight sim is going to be the gold standard of game graphics and that everyone should buy it.

    I haven't reported or done anything, but to warn him to stay within the rules, where he with linking his app and ask for reviews is as far as i can understand outside the rules of this forum.

    Short excerpt from the forum rules and they are pretty clear.

    The question is not about his Snood 2011, thus promoting his Snood version is against forum rules.

    As this is a thread about the product (which has been discontinued and the OP does not recall the name of it) letting OP know the latest version of the same product is available on the App Store it is marginal whether they have broken the rules.

    Anyway my real point is instead of having another developer answering the odd question that might be posted about their products and helping MR forum users, heavy handed comments about breaking rules etc will only scare away people from posting answers to questions. This will in the long run leave MR forum users with less information and less answers to questions like this one.

    Not saying warnings are not needed just if someone tried to help answer a question and is immediately referred to a set of posting rules that he *might* have broken according to another user they are likely to think it's not worth the effort of participating in the forum at all.

    I still think it's silly to come here and complain about a post on a thread, when I've seen several threads started by people marketing games go without a peep. There's another one I see now and no rules re-posted.
