    Hello everyone,

    My sister is interested in getting some games for her 8 year old son (he really wants a GameBoy, but she's decided against that). The biggest impediment is that she's currently running an old Rev B iMac (the original model, after it came out in multi-colors). So, I'm looking for suggestions about where she could buy and download games for her machine that her son would find interesting. Thanks!!

    Nanosaur & Bugdom.
    Burning Monkey Solitaire.
    Make sure it's running Mac OS 8.6 or 9, then go shopping on ebay.
    You might find Cro-Magnon Racer, too.
    He might like Railroad Tycoon II or Civilization II, or even Alpha Centauri.

    She is actually running Mac OS X, though I'm not sure which .x she's running. I'll have to check and find out.

    I know we (Feral) have an bunch of our older games (most of them with demos) that will run on your rev B iMac.

    Sheep
    Theme Park World
    Worms Blast

    Should all run, we also have a few that are min spec of 333 which is above your spec but with luck might run (I recommend you try a demo if possible).

    Apart from Feral stuff Pangea games made lots of lower spec titles and so do Freeverse. So check them out to.

    Feral
    Freeverse

    Cheers,

    Edwin

    Tropico maybe? Risk and Risk II? I bet the original Sims would run OK as well.

    Would Herores of Might & Magic III play on that? If so, I'd recommend it. :)
