Anyone got "Noiz2sa" and "rrootage" retro games for PowerPC ?

Title says it. They both existed for PPCMac but are now hard to find.

I have — to the best of my knowledge — copies of all of Kenta Cho's games that were released for Mac — I didn't know that any had become difficult to find… — and I'll upload the requested games as soon as I have the time to (at present I'm documenting for preservation some "lost media" (well, it was "lost media"… Wink ))

The PPC part (of Mac) is what's hard (for me) to find. There's other platforms as well as iPhone/Lion+ compiles to be found, but they say these two game titles were at first being made for Jaguar+. I'm also already running them on my PowerMac via MorphOS. Weird.

So, I've performed a cursory search of the portion of my collection that I have to hand at present, and I have both good and bad news…

The good news is that I've found a copy of Noiz2sa — as well as copies of A7Xpg, Gunroar, Torus Trooper, and TUMIKI Fighters, and I've tried to lightly test all of those games on a Power Mac G4 (AGP Graphics) (450MHz processor, 1GB memory) running Mac OS X 10.4.11.

The bad news is that out of all of those games, Noiz2sa is the only game to not play — its icon doesn't bounce even once in the Dock before it crashes without writing anything to the Console; it may play on an earlier version of Mac OS X — it was apparently built in either February or December 2003, and so predates "Tiger".

I'll try to test it on earlier versions of Mac OS X, and perform a more thorough search of my collection for the other game, as soon as I have the time to.
