They have Mac support to some of those too (mostly the older games)...

Yeah, it looks like pretty much all of the ones I picked up come with a custom version of Dosbox.  So if you can get dosbox to run on your operating system, you can probably play these games. (I'm going to see if I can get them to run on my phone, which has dosbox installed!)

Thanks for the heads up.  I never knew there was a sequel to Crusader.

It's the same old DOSbox that you can download at dosbox.com. The only thing different is that the config is set to auto-launch the game.

I believe there is a DOSbox for MAC's, but I don't now if you'll be able to run the GOG installer to get the games files; or has GOG fixed this for MAC users since the last time I purchased a game there?

gog always has great sales.  I have downloaded tons of games that I haven't really gotten around to touching.  At 2-5 bucks a pop it is not a big lose and they are almost always top quality titles.
Gypsies did it.

 Got no luv for the krackers only slugs for the krackers!

I'm pretty sure most (if not all) of the games I purchased had a Mac download.  I'm guessing it's just the Mac version of dosbox.

Thanks for the heads up, I can't believe I got Wing Commander 1-4 for 7 measly bucks.

Thanks a lot for posting this.  Syndicate is one of my all-time favorite games, and it's running smooth as can be on my Mac.  I might have to download a few more games.
