I would like to say thanks to our community on http://Facebook.com/MacPowerPC . You guys are awesome, we are sharing so many good news/informations/tips that I’m having a hard time to keep posting everything here. So PowerPC users please Like our page and keep checking on us. I promise you that we will continue giving reasons to take out your PowerPC machine from the closet.
Now it’s time to play some games.

Seeing as how we can do everything else…why not play a bit of Golf from the comfort of your PowerPC and enjoy few hours without having to worry about waking up early for work tomorrow! This is an expansion pack that adds a new Egyptian theme with 18 new holes to your Islands Mini-Golf. The full version of this game can be download here: Island Mini Golf. If you guys are wondering the game is totally Free – (Of Course! We from Mac PowerPC don’t have the luxury to spend money!!). Enjoy your hole in one with Islands Mini-Golf!
Let’s get back on track, now MacPowerPC is running an application test on an iBook G4 (1.07GHz + 1.25GB Ram) and that my dear readers is quite good! I will still be looking for something more power like PowerMac G5 (dual) with 4GB Ram but this is a search for the future, and all the document processing we are doing on a PowerBook G3 (Pismo – 400MHz + 320MB Ram) Running 10.3.9. We decide to share the work because some applications ask to save your work for you, but sometimes others just restart automatically and if you are typing the material you lose it. Anyways…
We all know about Guitar Hero, so I would like to share an incredibly funny game that runs on our favorite processor.
* Frets On Fire – 1.3.110 (Free) – PowerPC 10.4 or later. It’s really fun to play this cross platform game. It’s like playing Guitar Hero on your PowerPC. Don’t waste your time, download now and start having fun! – http://fretsonfire.sourceforge.net/
It’s always fun have some games installed on your computer. I know many people say that Mac users are not as into games as the average PC’er, but it turns out that they were wrong! Just check the App Store and see that most of the apps are games for iPodTouch/iPhone/iPad. The funny thing about it is that the simple games are taking over, ex: AngryBirds, Smurfs Village, Where’s Waldo?, etc.
If you are looking to have some fun with your PowerPC, these guys decided to make a project that supports the old processors and have released a new game entitled Furiod. We had a chance to check their previous game called Marball Odyssey, and I think the PowerPC showed them some support because now we’ve got another one for our own entertainment!
They’ve also left a message for us: “Is awaiting for your feedback dear PPC users! Let me know if you’re able to hear music (intro/ingame/extro) and if it runs at a decent speed? I’m only using an Emulator (PearPC for Dev and testing so… I don’t know really :)”
If your goal is finding more classic games, I will strongly recommend this web-site called – http://macintoshgarden.org/ They have an amazing number of discontinued games and software available for download that you should not miss out on! Most of them work for old macs (look who’s saying old macs) but I mean Mac OS 8/ Mac OS 9 and the Mac OS X and later. Just look around and I guarantee you that you will find great things on this site!!!u that you will find great things there.
