Pangea Arcade is an unusual collection of three arcade games: Nucleus, Warheads, and Firefall, all of which are based on classic arcade games.
However, each game has been revamped and modernized for Macs with some pulsating graphics and sound. The games are based on Missile Command, Centipede and Asteroids.
The 3D graphics on all the games are impressive although the gameplay doesn't quite matchup.
The controls are a bit awkward in Missile Command which makes it hard to play for more than a few minutes without getting frustrated.
It's also not particularly well suited to controlling with a Trackpad. The developers even claim that with red and blue glasses, you can play the games in 3D mode although I was unable to verify how this actually looks.
- Pangea Arcade is free from the Mac App Store for a limited time (normally $4.99).
