Could you play Descent 1 and/or 2 on a Mac LC 475?

Post by Lightning92 » Sat Aug 07, 2010 11:17 am

I am thinking about getting a Macintosh LC 475, which is an older computer. I am curious, could I play Descent 1 and/or Descent 2 on it? Also, what about FreeSpace or Descent 3?

Can I play Crisis 2 on a Atari 2600 using a serial mouse?

The LC 475 was released in 1994. Descent 1 was released in 1995. That's only 1 years difference???

Not with those specs LOL.
It's never good to wake up in the shrubs naked, you either got way too drunk, or your azz is a werewolf.

There was a Mac version of D1/D2 if I recall, and they might be in the same date range that it'd work. FreeSpace/D3 weren't released for the Mac that I remember, and even if they were a machine of that vintage wouldn't have a prayer of running them.
