Metanet has been around for a long time, but they only have two official releases. So why am I writing about them? Because they ROCK! That’s why… Their first release N which is still available for free (Mac or Windows) on thier website is a vector based ninja game that I compare to lode runner on steroids. You have to run, jump and climb through puzzle type levels and collect gold and then get the heck outta there! But you have awesome skills. It is the best free game I’ve ever played (it’s also one of the best games (period) that I’ve ever played. The second release from Metanet was N+ which I purchased two copies of for the Nintendo™ DS so I can network play it. It is awesome how they took all the fun of the computer versions and squeezed it down into the DS with no loss of anything! It plays awesomely! I am looking ever forward to the release of their next title Robotology! Go to their website and check it out!

This is the home page for a game called Soldat. It is the only game that has ever made me wish I had a windows computer. It is free and as of now only available for Windows. I have never played it, but I have been watching the website for a couple of years now waiting to see if they will make a mac version. The videos of this game make it look like one of the most fun games to play! Someday I will break down and hook up my old windows machine in the basement and play this game… when I have time…. Anyway, if you have a windows machine (or even if you don’t) check this game out. It looks awesome!

This is a very cool site by Richard Bannister who has created and/or ported some really cool emulators for the Macintosh Operating system. He also has some cool info about roller coasters…

I’d also like to take this opportunity to thank Richard Bannister for his hard work and dedication that allows people like me to relive the past on modern equipment without taking a chance on breaking my classic hardware!
