Casual game maker
first introduced support for Mac OS X last year with the release of several of its downloadable action/puzzle games. Since then the company has also offered .Mac users free and discounted games. Now GameHouse is teaming up with United Developers subsidiary
to get its Mac games onto store shelves.

MacPlay’s packaging of GameHouse products is called the “Super GameHouse Collection.” The CD-ROM combines three previously released GameHouse titles: Super Collapse, a block color-matching game, Super Glinx, in which you must link shapes in rows and columns, and Super Nisqually, a variation on the block-matching game.
The games remain available for purchase and download from GameHouse, but MacPlay’s offering may be more appealing to casual gamers without a high-speed Internet connection, or those looking for a better value than purchasing all three separately — MacPlay’s collection is priced at US$29.95, half the price of buying all three from GameHouse.
The retail versions of the games include features not found on the Internet versions, according to the companies. Full screen play is supported, there’s more music to choose from, higher resolution graphics, and the ability to post high scores.
The Super GameHouse Collection requires Mac OS X 10.1 or later. They’re available direct from MacPlay for a limited time for $24.99, $5 off the regular price.
