Download link is broken and it's unavailable from the publisher site.

Any chance of putting this back up?

Found a copy of this 1.3.2 version, am downloading it now and will post it to the MacUpdate servers, asap.

Meanwhile, the download link here on the MacUpdate page for WingNuts 1.3.2 has been updated and should work for you now.

This game starts out as lots of fun, BUT . . . it gets so hard at the later levels (I can't get beyond Level 23) that it just gets downright frustrating! Instead of getting just one plane per level, it ought to be upped to two or even three once you get past, say, level 20 or so. There are so many enemies in the higher levels that you can't even move without getting creamed. The player should have access to several more shields if he is to have a chance at getting to the final level (30). Otherwise this game just forces you to give up on it. Not good!

Last version was great fun BUT at the highest levels there were graphics problems. I have a Quicksilver G-4 with 1.2 GB of RAM I hope that this problem is fixed. the game is a lotta fun.

I am hopelessly devoted to WingNuts. It's not blood & guts, just simple killing and maiming of all types of aircraft. The Baron makes comments as your trying to destroy his planes. There are 30 levels, on each of which you can acquire an additional plane (life). You'll need every one of them after the 30th level when you're required to destroy the Time Sifter; an aircraft carrier equipped with some serious guns. It's a game that doesn't take itself seriously (self-deprecating, in fact, given the Baron's ongoing conversation with you) and very difficult.

Run demo on eMac-700 G4, OS 9.2.2. Allocate 2x RAM suggested. Game runs well until the game ends and the screen turns black after selecting "quit". Then nothing works, including application "Force Quit". Have to manually shut down and reboot. Desktop icons come back badly disarranged. Sent email to software mfgr. arcade games forum with no response.
