looking for future inspiration

Was there any decent 68k Macintosh games the Amiga never got?

Prince of Persia originated from the Mac I believe.


EDIT - Sorry I misread the original post, my mistake.

Alone In The Dark. I remember trying to run it with a MAC emulator, didn't have much luck or any idea how.

Edit: Oh, thought it was MAC only, MS-DOS first..

Only interested in 68000 based conversions, my experience of 6502 is nil.

so, alone in the dark sounds interesting, cant find a 68000 version of it so far.

OT Mac src

What about this (completely unrelated) stuff?

http://www.computerhistory.org/atchm...w-source-code/

Sorry for OT.

To save it:
X-Wing? Never seen on Amiga.
I also found a thread on Ars:http://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?t=1000714 mentioning Dark Castle, never heard of it, anyway.

Consider my interest.....interested. i reckon with judicious programming, the Amiga could do this in its sleep.

Music however is bloody awful

The only problem with most Mac games is that you'd need an Amiga with a proper high-resolution display to run them, or at least an OCS Amiga in interlaced mode - there never was a Mac with a display smaller than 512x342, and color games were almost all 640x480. That said, a couple that I remember from my childhood are The Oregon Trail and Spin Doctor.

Pathways into Darkness by Bungie. It's a very atmospheric raycaster requiring player engagement. Minotaur is an earlier game of theirs, simple tile based fantasy stuff. They also did a topdown tank game early on.
