3:59 PM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
MacCentral found a new page posted at Casady & Green (the company famous for programs like Conflict Catcher and SoundJam) which details their gaming plans for OS X. One of their first and largest titles is Zone Warrior II, a 3D space-combat flight simulator. They have updated the $15 program, Carbonizing it to run on OS X as well. Here are just a few of its features:
- Real planet pictures and star maps
- Smooth 3D space-flight simulator
- Fully textured graphics rendered real-time
- 256 colors, display from 640 pixels wide up to 1024
- Arcade action - shoot everything that moves through space Gouraud-shaded
In addition to Zone Warrior II, Casade & Greene will also be porting such Mac classics as Glider Pro, Crystal Crazy, and Step On It!. Many old-school Mac fans have probably wasted away many an hour at Glider Pro or Crystal Crazy, so it's great to see them making the transition to OS X.
