What's New in Version 1.1.2 After the epic Battle of Hoth, the Rebel Birds have barely escaped the ice planet with the Pigtroopers in close pursuit! There's an asteroid field close by that could provide some cover... but watch out, there's more to it than meets the eye! Make your way through 20 nail-biting levels! Discover 2 new bonus levels! Watch out for mynock pigs in the belly of the asteroid! Make a daring escape in an epic moving boss fight!
This is the 1993 SimCity 2000, running as a DOS program in an emulator, as a lot of GOG programs do. I was expecting a rewritten Mac OS X version of it (I used to run it in Mac OS 7.5 I believe), but it runs fine. The graphics are a bit crude-looking, but that's how it looked in DOS (it seemed to look better under the Mac OS.) Note: this is now $5.99, not $2.99 as I expected. I paid anyway as SimCity 4 won't run under 10.8 (or probably 10.7 for that matter.)
Version 0.9.1 is out. Available at http://admitoneapp.com
You can still run this on an Intel Mac in Mountain Lion. However, it's pretty old and a lot of websites don't work or look skewed (YouTube, Apple.com). I was trying to get nostalgia, but the interface is pretty Mac OS X. I think I'll find a way to run OS 9 under SheepSaver or get an old Mac to run.
Wow. Version 0.8 is huge, with installments like story mode and many, many addons like new/add-on characters, and a huge number of add-on races and arenas. They aren't lying, the AI is better and the cars handle better. This is one really good game for totally free. Reminds me of something on a console system, a good one.
I prefer this to Gruml (locks up after running a while—still in beta) and any other RSS reader. Smooth interface, nice text, feels like a 10.7/10.8 program like something that could run on iOS.
Not compatible with 10.7 Lion or 10.8 Mountain Lion as it's not Universal. No update seems to be coming. There is, however, an iOS version. Makes me wish I had an iPad or at least an iPhone—have to buy an iPhone soon to upgrade my cellphone!

I like Gruml a lot, but it seems to lock up when left running for more than an hour or so at a time. I know it's a beta, but this is a pain. I am on Mountain Lion 8.0.1 on a MacBook Pro.
