The company said that it spent six months gathering the collection of software — the software itself was tested on four different configurations, including Mac OS X. Company owner Debbie Whelan noted that in order to make the collection, the software had to pass all four tests.
The new collection includes many titles from Lazerworks’ previous release — All the Best MacGames 2000. The new collection adds 139 new games, updates 186 games and carries over 204 titles from the previous release. As shareware titles, the games on the collection come unregistered, but it may be a good alternative for users who are either unable or unwilling to wait for software to download off of Web or FTP servers.
Lazerworks is a family operation — Debbie’s husband Tim does design work and technical support, while the Whelans’ children assist with testing, assembly and shipping. “We are a family of Mac lovers selling a product to other families of Mac lovers,” said Whelan.
All the Best MacGames 2002 is available for US$20.
