includes five of the Mac-exclusive game developer’s titles in one package. It’s been around for a while, but on Friday Pangea offered up the Super Pack as a download, saving you the trouble of having a CD-ROM shipped to you. It costs $49.95.
The Pangea Super Pack includes the latest versions of five previously released Pangea Software games: Cro-Mag Rally, Otto Matic, Bugdom 2, Enigmo and Billy Frontier.
All five games work quite well on Intel-based Macs, confirmed Pangea president Brian Greenstone. Only Bugdom 2 and Otto Matic are Universal binaries, however. But the other three titles operate so well within Rosetta that there was no need to update them to Universal binaries, he told
. They’ll operate just fine even on Intel Macs with integrated graphics, such as the Mac mini and MacBook. (With one caveat: Cro-Mag Rally’s multiplayer functions only work in Mac OS 9 — multiplayer in that game won’t work at all in Mac OS X, regardless of whether you’re using PowerPC or Intel-based Macs.)
If you haven’t upgraded to an Intel Mac and you’re still using a PowerPC-based Mac, you’re probably still in luck, too. The minimum system requirements for the games call for a G3/400MHz or faster, 256MB RAM, Mac OS X v10.2.6 or later and an ATI RAGE 128 3D graphics accelerator or better.
