I'm trying to find an old game I played 10+ years ago on an apple computer. I think it was called Asterex or something like that. It was basically an asteroid game like the classic, except it had ship upgrades and weapon upgrades and was in full color. I think I remember it being only for Apple too....but I can't find any info on it on the internet. I was hoping somebody remembers the game.

Kind of a trip down memory lane...I thought it would be fun to get the game now and see if it's anything like I remembered it. I probably won't be as impressed with the graphics as I was back then.

You better watch it, Ozzy: you're this close to getting another completely arbitrary block under your name.

Thanks guys! That looks like it's the right game....now the only problem is that I have a new mac with one of the Intel chips, and it says it's not supported on this system.

Any other ideas? I thought that under "Rosetta" these new computers would run anything the old ones did.

I guess the problem is that the program is made to run on OS 9. The new intel based Macs can't run OS 9 programs. I guess I will just have to play it at work. Nice job on finding that!

Hehe. Josh...I used to think the same way as you until I started working on one for 8 hours a day. They build in so many little things that make life easier and just make sense. I would get so used to being on one, I would get home and work on my PC and it just didn't seem right.

I do wish you could build your own Mac like you can PCs, but I do like OS X alot....even better than Windows XP. That's saying alot because XP is a nice OS too.

PAK...you gonna back me up on this?
