It seems that everyone is only selling games for the newest and greatest of the Apple OS's, and I can't find hardly anything for my older machines. Does anyone know of a place to get them?

I found things to download, but I also want to have them in boxes-- it must be the collector in me wanting this, but I would really like to find a few, at least a few.

Was Pitfall: Mayan Adventure ever released for any of the Apple OS's?? I can't find it anywhere.

Unless they changed them, Warcraft II and Diablo are still hybrid cds that will work on both P-1 class PCs and Classic OS Macs. They can still be found in retailers.

I saw those, and might look into Warcraft but looking for older games. I'm just not into WOW and MMORPG's. Hopefully I can find a Willaim's Arcade or something like that. I wonder if Atari Classics was ever released for it..?

That may disqualify Diablo II, but Warcraft II is not an MMORPG or even an RPG. It's an RTS (unlike WoW). :)

Thanks for that, I can get into soemthing like an RTS. Another game I'd liek to get is X-Wing vs. Tie Fighter for older Macs. I know it was released but hard to find(except for OSX). Thanks!

The only original game I have for Mac OS is Wolfpack which runs on older machines. Don't have it at hand atm, but I think it's made for 680x0 machines like my Macintosh IIci.

Thanks!! Now my older Apples can all be pretty cool gaming machines, that was just what I was looking for! :)

Kinda obvious but have you checked craigslist or freecycle? In the past (at least here) it seems like lots of older Mac games just sit on the shelf and would be difficult to even give away. I would imagine someone probably has a box of them somewhere who would gladly donate them to you or a thrift store/half-price books or something probably has some for cheap.

Awhile ago I bought "Out of this World" at a dollar store.

In other countries, that game was known as "Another World", for those of you who didn't know. :)

A remake has been made, of which you can download the demo here:
