escape velocity is the greatest game ever

in Mac Software edited January 2014
does anyone else play ambrosia's escape velocity? i am pretty well convinced that it is the greatest game of all time. i haven't tried the newest one (nova) but the original and override are sweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet. if you don't have it, go to and download the shareware.

not even available on a pc. yippeee!

    It is in the process of being ported to PC.

    I liked the first two a lot, but with Nova I expected just a little more and I didn't get it. I am not impressed at all with Nova.

    that game rocked especially when ev was in its early stages, you could fire off either 999 or 200 torpedoes at the same time because of a glitch, it was fun.

    The only thing i wish ev had was multiplayer support if it had that it would freaking rock the house.

    Oh btw is it me or are mac users more accepting of games without amazing doom 3 3d graphics? Cause i love spectre challenger, marathon series, power pete, day of the tentacle, dark forces, those games rocked, and they're still cool. I could play them with no trouble on a 2mb graphics card

    Fun game, but just seems like a pumped up version of Asteroids...=) I miss my Atari! =)

    The greatest part of EV was the plugin interface. Anyone could write one, and it could completely renew the game and make it worth playing for another 1000 hours.

    Why, oh why couldn't they make OSX-native tools for EV:N? <img src="graemlins/hmmm.gif" border="0" alt="[Hmmm]" />
