Anno 1701 for Mac

Great news and some less good news. Anno 1701 has been ported to Mac! The less good news is, it only works in Crossover for now… Reason is the Hardware check/diagnose, which get passed without issues on Crossover, but causes a black screen freeze in Porting Kit using Wineskin. Vitor is looking for a way to bypass this “check” because this is the only show stopper. Meanwhile the game will be only playable using Crossover at the moment. Maybe a good reason to get Crossover next to Porting Kit.

Anno 1701 is the most elaborate and expensive game production in the German speaking region and the sequel to the most successful, multi-million selling game series of all times. The third part of the unique combination of different genres creates a real-time building game and is also set in 16th and 17th century, the era of discoveries and maritime trade.

Tip: Anno 1701 is now 75% off ($2,89) on GOG.com because of the Back to School sale!!

The game works great in Crossover, so that program is advised to use. So if you haven’t Crossover yet, then get it up here and buy the program or if you want to test it first, for the 14 days trial.

7th Legion for Mac

7th Legion is a good old strategy game. Game works great on even low-end Mac’s. The game although has in-game multiplayer options, GOG unfortunately turned off the multiplayer option. Anyhow, still a very nice game with the features below:

  • Endless strategic choices and timed sub-missions in a futuristic war-torn world.
  • Play either the 7th Legion or the Chosen in over 35 feverish finger-blistering combat missions.
  • Over 50 Battle Cards and 20 power-ups instantly turn the tide of battle.
  • Progressive technology levels reveal advanced buildings, units and weapons.
  • Ruthless mercenaries get smarter as they collect mutilated bodies for cold hard cash.

Centuries of reckless consumption and overpopulation had brought the Earth’s ecosystem to the brink of collapse. In desperation, governments of the world developed an interstellar Evacuation Program granting exit passes only to the most privileged segments of society. The poor and common were left behind to perish. Now centuries later, the “Chosen” have decided to return to Earth and assume control. But there’s a catch – the 7th Legion is waiting with a powerful and fiery “welcome home” BBQ planned in their honor.

Civilization III Complete for Mac

Great news! Civilization III Complete (Steam) has been added to Porting Kit! The game is not longer native for Mac for a while so, that’s why many requests for a port for the game. Well here it is! Although the game itself works great, there is a music bug which causes the music to get stuck after a while playing, in that case, you have to turn of the music so only Sound FX will be there. A small price to pay, for such an amazing game. Oh one more thing, the Windows Steam game is only priced $3,99 on Games Republic, so get it cheap there (if you don’t own the game yet)!
