Game Agent from Aspyr

Go get me game talent for my Mac! By Ko Maruyama
As a Mac OS veteran, I remember back to the old days.  Older than that even.  I bet you don't remember educational games like Sticky Bear Bop.  You do?  Okay, well the Mac has come a long way since those IIe games, but there are still many PC-only games out there.  If you want to find out what will run on your Mac, or on another Mac model or OS that you might not have, check out the free game utility from Aspyr.

Aspyr makes games like THE SIMS, TOMB RAIDER, and ROLLERCOASTER TYCOON that have been on Macs for a while, and new games like GUITAR HERO III, CALL OF DUTY, and NEVERWINTER NIGHTS 2.



With the newly updated Game Agent application, users will now be notified automatically when patches or updates are available for Aspyr games installed on their Mac.  The new Software Update feature is similar to the Software Update feature run through Mac OS X, and will periodically check your computer for any updates available for Aspyr games installed on your computer.



Users are able to change the frequency at which Game Agent checks for game updates through the Settings in Game Agent Preferences, or can check at any time on their own by clicking "Software Updates" on the sidebar.  Once updates are identified, users can select to implement those immediately or ignore them.  

Get your (Mac / Aspyr) Game on by finding out which game fits your machine, or which Mac fits the game you'll want to get..... yeah - this utility can also help you find the next machine that you'll need to buy to play the latest Aspyr game.

You can download the free updated software from Aspyr here and check out a new game for your new mac:
