Gone are the days when you couldn’t even have a single game on your Mac based computer. PC users used to taunt Mac users because Mac was having serious compatibility issues with almost all the hardware and no one was developing software for the Mac OS. This has changed since. Nowadays almost all games are being developed for Mac as well as Windows operating systems. With the launch of Mac App store, even more games have hit the market and more games are being added everyday. Games like Star Craft II and Angry Birds have really changed the way we perceive Mac OSX’s graphics capability. Yes, the Angry Birds isn’t very graphics intensive and yes it uses very low resources. But the way the User Interface integrates with the Mac multi-touch pads makes it worth a while.
We are glad to take this opportunity to present 10 of the most recent and brilliant games available on the Mac App Store for Mac Operating systems. Since the latest itinerary of Mac OSX is Snow Leopard, all these games work on Snow Leopard pretty perfectly. We have wrote about Mac games before, but this is a much recent and fresh list of games than the last ones. The numbering of games is done according to their total sales volume on Mac App Store, it has nothing to do with the game-play or graphics of the games.
