    Who remembers Power Pete? Nanosaur (1)? Budgom (1)? Cro-Mag Rally (not that old, but still)?
    I remember on my family's first computer, a Performa bought in 1994 running 7.6. It had Power Pete on it, which always seemed mystical to me. I was never able to play it, being far too terrible at it; however, my sister excelled at the game. When she wasn't screaming at me to go away (she was 4 years older than me), I loved to watch her play it. She ended up beating the game on hard. It was quite a site to see the end credits after all that trouble.
    Budgom came installed on an iBook G3 that the School District gave to my mom, along with Nanosaur and Cro-Mag Rally. I ended up beating Bugdom, after my sister did, though I didn't recover all of the ladybugs and I don't think I got all of the blue and gold clovers. My sister tried to beat Nanosaur once when we were on vacation and finished when we came home; that was a stressful game, since you only had 20 minutes to do it. In truth, she only beat it because a friend of mine told me a cheat to get 999 of every weapon (You go to the hill/mountain thing in the very beginning with the square top and the health thing; do a double jump up there and you also get full jet fuel). Then came Cro-Mag Rally. I know it's not that old, but I played it on and off for years on practice; finally I tried tournament and managed to unlock the final three levels in February of either 2007/2008. I have yet to beat the game.
    Share your memories of old Pangea games that you either can't find anymore or can only play on really old platforms.

    The best old Mac game was Escape Velocity. I spent hours and hours playing that game. So much to do. I never really played Nanosaur as the Mac I had at the time was too slow to play it properly :(.

    Dude, that sucks. Though I never actually beat it, it was a very fun game, if (as previously stated) a little stressful. The final world was the hardest, I would cringe whenever I thought one of the flying dinosaurs would kill my sister (in one section, you had to go really high to get the last few eggs, where one hit would kill you. Kind of like levels four and the boss level five in Bugdom where the bats would eat you if you went too high).
