The current list of Macintosh OSX exclusives

Postby annoyment » Tue May 21, 2019 2:24 pm

:thanks: to myloch for indirectly sparking a lil' bit of interest, I was willing to waste a couple of weeks to bring you what the title says :!: Even though I'm anti-Apple (was never a thing in the REMOVE KEBAB lands, along with zero support for any and all malpractice of their doing, plus "the usual personal preference that took its toll over time" - read my sig BTW :P ), thought an up-to-date collection of research results will be of some use in the future (maybe to QEMU devs as Mac VM GPU HW acceleration testing recommendations or something) :| Here are the guidelines I went by:
- Timeline: non-Carbon to May 2019 (far easier to look into than DRMs - will finish those eventually :wacko: )
- Never left the Apple ecosystem: true OSX-only titles, as well as iOS ones with confirmed OSX ports (and/or vice-versa) :omg:
* In any shape or form that is - no Wii, Android, Blackberry, Unity Web Player, Java applet, Chrome Web Store, etc :lol:
- Only general platform availability has been checked - not current rarity nor sale periods nor DRM nor whatever else :?
- Game (Developer) - all pulled from various sources, verified, and in some semblance of alphabetical order by yours truly :up:
Before the text proper, an honorable mention to Sega Superstars Tennis :x
Tier 1: IMO the most unique of the bunch - even though most are indies, it's still regrettable that some were never ported elsewhere :cry:

Already sniffed: Wikipedia, MobyGames, OGDB, Macintosh Garden, Macintosh Repository, Steam, GamersGate, Amazon, MacGameStore, MacUpdate, MacGameFiles, LegendsWorld, and craploads of developers' webpages, plus (maybe) 15% of Mac App Store before abandoning that due to being unintuitive to dig into (all manually BTW :wacko: )... BEYOTCH :lol:

SIDENOTE: due to another official store purge having happened :thanks: to Catalina, I'll have to return here in the future to do some "final" sniffing and updating of this list unfortunately :x Thus currently necrobumping with a couple of reference URLs (which should cover nearly all of the Mac ecosystem backlog me thinks :huh: ):
Code: Select all
https://appagg.com/macos-games/ (seems to double as a more accessible current App Store database the more I look at it)
https://appshopper.com/mac/all/games/new/
https://www.formidapps.com/mac/
https://macoshub.ru/category/igry/
