You're limiting yourself to the games (and applications in general) of yesteryear by choosing to stick with 9.

I'll use OSX a lot more than OS9 for everything but I do want to play old games on OS9 once in a while. Reply 4 of 18 pb Posts: 4,234member March 12, 2004 8:52AM I will post someones I like very much: Pacman family .PacMac Deluxe. Shareware.Ms. MacPerson. Shareware.Pac the Man (this one comes in a very nice OS X version, that works on OS 9 too). Free.I think Ms. MacPerson is the most hard of all, as it gives you one life at 20000 points and the next life is at 100000 points .PacMac Deluxe is just incredible: comes with thousands of levels AND level editor to create your own ones! Shareware, but worth the money. Reply 5 of 18 pb Posts: 4,234member March 12, 2004 9:20AM Oh, yeah, Tetris. Tetris Max 2.9 in particular. Simply the best tetris for the Mac. Although I personally prefer the older 2.8 version. Reply 6 of 18 fluffy Posts: 361member March 12, 2004 9:51AM I love the original Unreal. The tournament games just don't have the atmosphere of the original. Myst is a classic Mac game. If you like RPGs, the Fallout series is good. Falcon 4 if you like flight sims (be sure to apply the patches). Reply 7 of 18 michael wilkie Posts: 223member March 12, 2004 8:11PM Unreal Tournament, Deck 16.Starcraft. Reply 8 of 18 fahlman Posts: 723member March 13, 2004 8:30PM Glider is a simple, fun, and addictive classic game.Also, Maelstrom is still the best shareware game ever!Lemmings was also a great game that you can play for hours. Here is a suspect link. At that same site look for Prince of Persia. WARNING: Download from the-underdogs.org at your own risk. First, those two games are still copyrighted material, I assume, and second, you don't know what your really getting when you download from there.

More info here: Link Reply 11 of 18 dmband0026 Posts: 2,345member March 14, 2004 2:59AM Unreal. The original, none of this 2k4 tournament crap...it's all about the original. Even though you have to buy it and it's probably really hard to find. If your looking for a free one, Prince of Persia is the greatest game in the history of the world, go for that.
