EV Nova for Mac1.1.1

22 December 2011

Third game in the Escape Velocity series.

What is EV Nova for Mac

Note: EV Nova is not being sold anymore and is listed only for people who had purchased it in the past.

In EV Nova (the "threequel" to Escape Velocity), the developers are working on a huge update to the game -- it's been rewritten so that the graphics engine is 16 bit, handles transparencies, hue tinting, thruster and laser "glowing", and a number of other really cool features. The graphics for the static scenes are all 32 bits of love, and there are QuickTime movies for many aspects of the game (don't worry, they augment the game, the developers aren't turning the game into an "interactive novel" or anything silly like that).

Fine game, well written. Bought it years ago. One thing I don't understand is why the 1.1.1 update was necessary. I had no problems with registration, pilot files were saved automatically anyway. But I'm still using Mac OS 10.4 on my PowerBook (10.5 on my G5), so I'm not updating this time.

Why, oh why is the game still played in such a small window? If it were truly full screen, I'd buy this new version in a flash. If I'm missing something here, please let me know! TIA

Here is the only digital game I have ever bought that has not faded away --- Bought it 10ish years ago and still find it "new" due to the various ways you can play it. The enhancements link opens the door to minor and major changes to freshen it.

Still one of my favorite games of all time. I'd love to see an iPhone port.

Version 1.1 is on their website: http://www.ambrosiasw.com/games/evn/ It's a universal binary .app package. Note that the "Nova Files" folder is now embedded within the app. It's amazing to see someone at Ambrosia put some time into EV Nova so many years after its release. Thanks for the effort, guys. If you ever change your minds about reviving the EV "franchise," I have little doubt there will be a following.

Worth every last sent I spent. I've been playing this game for over three years now and although some of it gets boring, there are always new plugs to try and experiment with. 10 out of 10.

Nova is even better than Override and the original. It has more in-depth story lines, more ships, missions, better visuals than any other game that I have seen in the genre and has plenty of plug-ins to enhance gameplay. Great game.
