Arcade Games (Classic)
|Space Invaders Galaxian
Allenroids is a freeware Asteroids clone written in OpenGL. Allenroid's graphics are done in a "retro" style, which is a fancy way of saying that I have no idea how to produce something lifelike (there goes my Pixar career). However, I like the arcade-game feel I wound up with.
A much embellished clone of Centipede. During a port through the looking glass, the mirror shatters and your ethereal energy (you know, the stuff that allows you to get up and go to work on a Monday morning...) is trapped within one of the crystal shards. Immediately, the residents of the mushroom patch sense your presence. Lead by the Pentipede, this motley crew of mushroom patch misfits relentlessly hunt the crystal ( You! ), intent upon sucking out the trapped energy. The Pentipede is a sinister creature that has the ability to divide. So, if you think your troubles are over when you shoot this sneakered psycho once, you are twice as wrong.
A Tempest rendition. The object of ARASHI is to score points and advance levels. You advance levels by killing all of the enemies. 'You' are the crawler. You move around the top edge of a tube, or sheet. The player may move by use of the mouse or by use of the keyboard.
A one or two player Asteroids-type game with four channel sound. You get to pick your ship from three different choices, each having different strengths and weaknesses.
Asteroid Storm 1.2.1
Asteroid Storm is an Asteroids-like game that puts you into the pilot seat of the sole vessel capable of defending Earth from the menace of the asteroid swarm. Beautiful 32-bit 3d graphics and a nasty enemy AI help distinguish this game from similar ones. In addition to the standard turn left, turn right and accelerate forwards movement commands, it also features accelerate backwards, accelerate left, accelerate right and stop buttons. The game contains an infinite amount of computer-generated levels as well as several levels with written introductions that tell you the story of your voyage into the storm. As the game progresses, you will encounter dangerous remnants of the league war and the reason for the storm itself.
Barrack's goal is deceptively simple; there are a number of balls on the play field that are bouncing like a neurotic on a sugar rush. Your job is to use your shooter to isolate them.
Bedlam 2 1.1.1
Mankind has been virtually wiped out by an extraterrestrial armada! Only you, piloting the "Annihilator", can help save the solar system from ruthless alien domination. Bedlam 2 is a fast action, arcade-style game with forty-five levels of blistering game play. As you blast away at the invading forces, your ship moves along the bottom of the screen while you try to avoid a barrage of enemy firepower, collisions with attacking ships and the occasional chunk of floating space debris.
Join the lucrative trade of crystal mining! Navigate through deadly asteroid fields, do battle with menacing pirates and loathsome scavengers, and gather wealth for the purchase of powerful weapons and power-ups in this arcade style asteroids game.
BOOM is an arcade game in the grand tradition, bringing the playability and feel of the glorious 8-bit consoles on the Macintosh. It can be described as "Bomberman meets Doom". Actually, I took the basic Bomberman idea and dropped it in a "Super-Deformed Doom" scenario (whatever this means). As a space trooper your mission is to penetrate 8 alien infested areas, each one divided in 10 sub-zones, eliminate all enemies using your bombs and finally kick the Big Alien Boss back to where he came from.
Brickles Pro 1.1.1
Brickles Pro for Macintosh is a simple, addicting, ball and paddle game reminiscent of the breakout game of days gone by. Brickles Pro is fun for the whole family. It's a non-violent, colorful, "soundful" and amazingly customizable game.
Bub & Bob 2 0.981
Do you know 'Bubble Bobble', the classic arcade game also available for C64, Atari ST or Amiga? Well, Bub & Bob is a 90% clone of it. You are a little green or blue dinosaur and catch your enemies in bubbles you can shoot. If you let them burst with your back thorns they become fruits. There are many extras to enhance your abilities like fast shots or speed up. The best feature of the game is that two players can play together.
Cave Dig 1.1.3
Cave Dig is a wonderful and challenging arcade/puzzle game with beautiful graphics, a great soundtrack and a simple, yet entertaining gameplay.
You control Simon, a small fox with great powers, who is transported to a fantastic underground world. You will have to dig, move stones, travel through warps and ultimately use a laser pistol to escape from the hostile caves. Watch out for the creatures! They will block your path, chase you and squash you if you are not careful. Cave Dig is bound to become a shareware classic.
Cobra Gunship 1.3.3
Cobra Gunship is a side-view scroller helicopter game in the style of classics like Choplifter and Armor Alley. This is no mere remake, however. Cobra Gunship is a completely new game, taking advantage of fast processors and fast video to provide an immersive, explosive gaming experience.
Crystal Caliburn 3.0.1
Features 3 ball multi-ball, 3-D ramps, full nudge and tilt, authentic pinball sounds, flashing bumpers and more. The demo lets you play for 99 seconds.
DX-Ball is a brick-breaking game that has been earning fans since 1996 for its simple yet addictive game play. Michael P. Welch originally designed it for his wife, so that she could finally play something on the PC that was similar to her all-time favorite game, Megaball, on the Amiga computer. It was created as a labor of love, and unassumingly released as a freeware game. Since then, DX-Ball has been a phenomenon that defies explanation. Everyone in the family will enjoy DX-Ball, even people who don't play games. Try the game that has been invading living rooms, schools, and dorms for the past 6 years.
Ferazel's Wand 1.0.3
As the last of the free Habnabits, Ferazel must fight for the survival of his race, and wrest the control of ziridium from the filthy talons of evil. Journey across the seven lands of Teraknorn to the perilous Great western desert. Increase Ferazel's skill, stamina, and magic repertoire and avenge your Habnabit brethren. Anything less would amount to betrayal.
Get your frogs safely to the home pads without getting hit by a car, killed by a snake, crocodile or drowning. I know, frogs don't drown. Its a game. Maybe its radioactive water or something. Flashfrog is a Frogger clone done entirely in Macromedia Flash using ActionScript.
Frog Xing 1.4
Frog Xing is a well-paced arcade game in which you guide a frog across a highway and a river to dock on the other side. You can catch bonuses along the way to score extra points. Frog Xing has a nostalgic look to it, with a tip of the hat to the classic arcade games. With both traditional and new sound effects and a hopping music score, the gameplay is addictive and should be fun for both novices and arcade experts. Even children will enjoy watching and helping the frog cross to the other side.
FullTilt Pinball 1.0
Electronic pinball. The demo only lets you play one ball at a time.
Golden Logres 1.0.5
Golden Logres is set in the ruined kingdom of Logres after the Last Battle.

As the game begins, no one remains but Sir Bedivere, the last surviving knight -- and you!
Glider Pro 1.1.2
Welcome. Since Casady & Greene Inc. went bankrupt, the rights to the game Glider have reverted to me, the author. To that end, Glider PRO and Glider 4.0 are now free and I am giving them away for free download on this web page. Casady and Greene were a wonderful company and I am sorry to see them pass into Macintosh history.

Harry must avoid discomfort caused by dart-throwing middle managers, rebellious customer service drones, crazed chemists, and a host of other enemies. All the while, he must maintain corporate favor or risk the feared pink slip.
Jazz Jackrabbit II 1.2.6
Jazz 2 proves that the rumors of the platform game genre's demise are greatly exaggerated.Within Jazz 2, there are blocks that can be shot by various weapons. If a block has a star on it, Jazz can destroy it with any weapon. But, there are other blocks in the game: blocks with an exclamation mark on them must be stomped by Jazz's butt in order to be broken open; blocks with an ammo type depicted on them can only be destroyed by the corresponding weapon. This introduces an element of strategy requiring ammo conservation and treasure hunting.
Jinni Zeala 1.2.2
This game will hook you and never let go. That's why we call it... The Keyboard-Breaker.
JINNI ZEALA combines the best of traditional pinball with new, original features. Targets are arranged in the open, making them easy to aim for. The gameplay is simple---but that doesn't mean the game is easy to beat!

It features fast, custom designed graphic routines and multichannel sound.

Mars Rising 1.0.2

Now that we have reacquired the rights to the game, we have decided to re-release it as shareware for only $15.
