The Apple Store Now Carries 37 Mac Gaming Titles!

Mac Gaming News - The Apple Store Now Carries 37 Mac Gaming Titles!

by , 3:00 PM EST, December 19th, 2000

A quick check at The Apple Store showed us that Apple now offers 37 Mac games, including all the top current titles except the most recent releases from MacPlay (Sin and Majesty). Both of those titles are already on store shelves however. This is a marked increase in the number of games being offered at the Apple Store, and represents a good step towards greater support for the Mac gaming market. Note also that there have never been so many quality gaming options for Mac gamers. The full list as of press time:

  • Age of Empires
  • Baldur's Gate
  • The Sims: Livin' Large
  • Beach Head 2000
  • Scrabble
  • Risk II
  • Cro-Mag Rally
  • 4x4 Evolution
  • Monopoly
  • Driver
  • Heavy Metal F.A.K.K. 2
  • Links LS 2000
  • Rune
  • Tom Clancy's Rogue Spear
  • The Sims
  • Wheel of Fortune
  • Deus Ex
  • Diablo II
  • Asteroids
  • Caesar 3
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six
  • StarCraft
  • Descent III
  • You Don't Know Jack 2001
  • F/A-18 Korea Gold for Mac
  • Total Annihilation
  • Unreal Tournament
  • Tomb Raider: The Last Revelation
  • Civilization Call to Power
  • WarCraft II Battle.net Edition
  • WarCraft II Battle Chest
  • Falcon 4.0
  • Hoyle Casino
  • StarCraft Expansion Set: Brood War
  • Alpha Centauri
  • Quake III
  • Madden 2000

The bad news is that one has to be looking for these titles to find them. Head to the Apple Store and click on the "Software" category and then the Gaming link. We would provide a direct link, but it would expire due to the way the Apple Store works.

The Mac Observer Spin:

Hey, this is the perfect time for us to remind you that if you want to see more games come to the Mac, it is up to you to buy the titles you want to play. This means no pirating! There is lots of interest in the Mac market from developers and publishers listed above, and it is the bottom line that will keep that interest.
