So Attacklad is coming up on his 11th birthday. He’s done the DS thing, He’s played a few games, but he’s not allowed to devote lots of time to gaming, and Imp of the Perverse, his mother, is not a technophile. We’ve got Plants versus Zombies and* Angry Birds* on the Mac, but he’d like something more.
I looked at the Steam website, and have been considering
Altitude (flying shooting game)
Precipice of Darkness* (Mostly because I read Penny-Arcade’s site)
Of course, he’d like something like Blood Soaked Army of Darkness Zombie Killing Sniper Frenzy, but that’s not in the cards. A slightly less gory FPS might be sellable, but it wouldn’t be easy. A good WW1 or WW2 shoot em up flight simulator might fly, so to speak.
I’ve only glanced at the Mac App store, (Star Trek DAC, Battle of Midway, Island Racer, Knights of the Old Republic, Guerilla Bob…aaaaaaaaaahhh) and about then is when I realized that recommendations and opinions from my fellow dopers would be more valuable than sifting through zillions of games.
Suggestions? Reviews? Comments? I appreciate any help provided.
