    That's pretty cool. Too bad there's no Mac version.

    Does that use the assets from a legit copy of Warcraft II or is it a recreation of some sort? I own Warcraft II & the expansion. I was just curious.

    Yeah, I am not concerned about an old game that cannot be purchased as a new copy anymore anywhere. I was more interested in whether it was a source port which therefore likely used the original assets, supported the original single player campaign, etc. vs. a recreation that may or may not attempt to replicate the original single player.

    More than anything though I found it a shame it doesn't come in an OS X version but them's the breaks. Something like this would probably would run in a Wineskin wrapper I have a feeling.
