"Download Pangea Arcade for Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later. " The information above is incorrect. It is version 1.0.8 for 10.6 and higher when you download from the link. It requires a serial entry. Anybody have a link to the final universal binary version please? There doesn't appear to be a legacy link on the author's site.

MacUpdate admins: past time to update this entry. The App Store shows 1.0.8 having been there since 26-Jan-2011. The price is $9.99 (not $4.99) nor is it FREE any longer.

From the App Store only? But... I use a computer! Just give us a link! Why go through a heavily restricted App Store unnecessarily?!?!?

I think it is a fun little set of games. But, of course, I have played Pangea games for almost a decade, and still have a copy of CroMag Rally. Best yet, it's free. App Store installed it just fine.

"The application Pangea Arcade quit unexpectedly" No wonder it's free... I'm running OS X 10.5.8 so I used the "Download Pangea Arcade for Mac OS X 10.3.9 or later" link.

Nce of MacUpdate to post this. The games are great fun and simple to play — they were $5 but they free right now. 5 stars all around.

All the games of my childhood in a new and up to date look & feel, such as Asteroids and Missile Command. Great job! Many thanks for that!

I purchased some 3d Anaglyph glasses (more expensive plastic glasses rather than the cardboard ones) to use with Nucleus but it was unusable because of the ghosting. It really needs a calibration setting. The game itself when played without 3d glasses is addictive and well made.

COMMENT: PANGEA DEVs: I only have 1 gripe... it is on Warheads. It is very frustrating to run out of missiles so quickly! Warheads is my fave game - but it seems hopeless! If you can make refilling the defensive guided missiles easier or more frequent, that would increase the fun! It's a great, great game, but I hate running out of missiles within minutes, and just sitting there to die, or being killed by my own refills! It's quite a pessimistic, lonely game when I'm trying to save the world, and no one on my side is helping me refill the defenses! Maybe you can have an option where you get unlimited defensive missiles, or the refills don't explode, or the missiles refills automatically but slowly. Something - anything! I just hate waiting to die!!!!! It makes me sad watching my poor little cities blow up... I want a fighting chance! REVIEW: It comes with 3 simple games. Generally, they are excellent in themselves. For the most part, they don't try to be more than they are, except for the fact they are excellent remakes of Asteroids, Missile Command, and Centipede. SO expect near identical game play as the originals, but about 100 times for fun with terrific sight and sound. Depending on price, this is recommended if you love the originals! Everything about them is top-notch, yet simple. The Asteroids game may be based on asteroids or another later asteroids-copy, because not only do you fight an asteroid field, but you must also collect electrons to build atoms. So it gives this version more of a plot and makes it really cool, and kinda helps you in chemistry class as you build the molecular table in outer space! These games are just the best remakes on planet earth. Don't expect hours of straight game play - because they are just simple games in the end - but expect a fantastic 5 to 15 minute break between work (maybe even 30 minutes if you love games like this). Just what you need when you want to blow things up for a few minutes while reliving the 1970s and 1980s!!! You'll have nothing but joyful nostalgia if you lived in the early 1980s! Again, if the price is right - buy this! It would be 5 stars, except for the Warheads outlook of imminent hopeless destruction when you run out of missiles.

I really only like Nucleus. The other 2 included games I probably won't play much at all. I find them way too hard right off the bat. And I find Firefall uninteresting (visually, and otherwise). But Nucleus alone might make the app worth it. So I ignored the other ones, and just rated Nucleus. I like all the science elements - the black holes with their gravity wells, the electrons and the atoms - it's like something I might have dreamed up during a grade 7 science class. I wouldn't mind being able to change the difficulty level, though. Because I'm not much of a gamer. I only play games sporadically, and I like to be coddled - less work, more pay-off. But that's just me.

Amazing collection of classic remakes - takes the wind out of the whole "there aren't any good games on Mac OS X" argument. However, I had issues with controls sticking at various points throughout games (with the app completely in focus). Running 10.5.6 with the latest Apple Wireless Keyboard. Direction would stick, sending either my spacecraft in a perma-spin or player to the side of the screen. Also had problems with keys not registering during High Scores - unless I typed very slowly. I have absolutely no problems with this keyboard anywhere else - including while trying to enter this particular mini-review at 100wpm.

I would have given Pangea Arcade a straight 5 stars were it not for a few needed tweaks, and the fact that not all 3 games are created equal. All the eye (and ear) candy, including the game choice/option screen is exceptional, especially now that the flicker has been eliminated. Until it was corrected, i didn't know that it wasn't intentional, but i've noted the graphics now appear significantly more crisp. Great soundtrack! Makes me feel like i'm in a Star Wars movie. I still think the anaglyph display mode would be much more useable with some color calibration tools, and some changes to the rendering so there's less of a pink hue. (check out NASA Mars anaglyphs) More important is the lack of capability to custom map keys and mouse functions. My arrow keys are taking a beating. ---- I'm completely addicted to Nucleus. Sound, graphics, and playability are all excellent, even if i am having a devil of a time getting past Neon! Amazing playability considering the graphic density. ---- Warheads is almost as good. Having the 4 zones gives a good mix of play and the graphics are interesting. However, the speed at which difficulty increases keeps me from playing it extensively. I miss having some way to restore structures. Could use a bit of something to give it more variety. ---- Firefall is easily the weakest entry. Ambrosia's Apeiron was such an excellent Centipede-alike, Firefall falls very short. Play is only so-so. Dying is too easy while control is difficult. Both keyboard and mouse produce imprecise accelerating movement. Firefall feels clunky, as if given less attention and refinement than the others games. Graphics are comparatively uninteresting. If i were rating it alone, i'd give playability a 2 for awkward control, and a 3 for the less interesting appearance. .

I have 1 pair of high quality anaglyph glasses, as well as two types of cheap cardboard ones. Whichever i use, the game elements show significant red ghosting. This thing badly needs a calibration screen of some kind.

@mememe: I wouldn't be surprised if it runs fine under leopard. This company is awesome about patches though, so I have no doubt if it needs a patch it will get one.
