Any good B/W games?

I just bought a Mac Classic 2MB with a 40MB HD. Anyone know the best games that would work with 2MB Ram that are black and white? This thing is also a 68000..so hopefully something cool would be compatible with it. Any ideas?

Lotsa things! There's Arkanoid, At the Carnival, Fool's Errand, Cosmic Osmo (disk version), and much more. A Mess O Trouble and Ray's Maze, too. And Dark Castle. Don't forget the Dark Castle.

Well I tried all the games temporary joe mentioned, arkanoid worked! still have to try cosmic osmo and rays maze, but none of the others started for one reason or another, problem allocating memory, not recognized as an application even. I have system 6.0.8 installed. I would use 7 for better compatibility, but I may run into trouble having enough memory to open anything (2mb) I'll try installing 7 and playing the rest of the games regardless. I'll post back on the other list when im done. This is a very iffy mac!

Best of luck with the new mac AH, I only lasted less than a month before putting the (maximum) 4MB in my Classic. With the 4MB upgrade, this very machine was still being used only a couple of years ago (word processing mainly) by my cheap-ass brother.

Thanks for all the suggestions btw, does anyone know where to find a memory upgrade for the classic? I checked ebay, couldnt really find any 2mb simm chips.

@AppleHoarder: You won't be able to find 2 MB SIMMs for the Classic, which supports 256k and 1MB SIMMs only. You should be looking for 1 MB SIMMs (and if you find some, make sure they are compatible with your Classic, too).

See the 2nd Picture on this page for the Mac Classic's Memory configuration.
If you DL'd the stack from that page you'd be able to read the rest of the info - probably about jumper setting when upping the RAM in the Classic (requires HyperCard to view the SIMM Stack).

In fact, you could check what's marked as compatible with Mini vMac, that should work in a Macintosh Classic, too.

You're quite lucky to have something as fast as a Mac Classic. Some of us have to get by with an SE.

If you are thru with the stuff on MG, ClockWise has a nice collection here:

I was able to contribute one or two of those.

Glider 4.0 works great in black and white. I love it.
