I had a few minutes to kill the other day in Lab and I had my old Apple Laptop 180 open recording some data... yep spreadsheet still good for archiving daily results.... and it's right by the microscope and has a small foot print.<br><br>Anyway was looking on the HD and LO and behold there was Armor Alley . Fired that up and played for 10-15 min... STILL addictive !!<br><br>WHY hasn't someone rewritten that for OS X? ... and maybe added some new twists? Back in the 1990s, I was entertained for hours playing that SIMPLE game. Great time killer. The other game I had on there to pass a few minutes was Dalecks<br><br>anyone have any other OLD favorites ?<br><br>I see they're coming out with an updated Pirates (Sid Meir) another old favorite !<br><br>David (OFI)

Lode Runner was the best fun ever. The Legend Returns wore out the keys on my Duo.<br>Infotron was also a goodie but more difficult as it progressed.<br>Have a look at Macintosh Garden @ http://188.8.131.52 for all the old favourites.<br><br>
Oh man you both have great ones... Dark Castle which they're re-releasing... and LodeRunner... loved them Both !!<br>Why hasn't some game company updated these ? they'd still be fun !!<br><br>David (OFI)

XBOX360 Live Arcade are just about to release a new 3D-version of LodeRunner and the screenshots look fantastic. Bit of the old, some of the new. <br>GT Interactive did produce an isometric grid-style version called Lode Runner 2 in the 1990's for Mac and it was a complete dog... half-way between 2 and 3-D but not quite either.<br><br>Have a look a Infotron at the MacIntosh Garden... I could not stop playing it when I first discovered it about five years ago.<br><br>
I'm sure you all will laugh but I like Apeiron which has a version for Mac OSX also and Hangman which also has a X version but, they make you pay for the X version. Last but not least Scrabble which also has a X version. <br><br>Too many lives they've spent across the ocean. Too much money been spent upon the moon. Well, until they make it right, I hope they never sleep at night. They better make some changes and do it soon. -Things Goin' On/Lynyrd Skynyrd

I was going to say, Lode Runner also. Loved to play that on my old Apple II which is where I got addicted.<br><br>When it went to the Mac the second update it became to complicated for me to handle. I like simple<br><br>dave<br><br><br><br>
