This Gauntlet-like-but-with-puzzles game has a demo on here, but no longer seems to be buyable.

Try politely reaching out to the author (meynard AT videotron DOT ca). I found his e-mail here: http://pages.videotron.com/ymeynard/index.html#Software

Ask him if it is still for sale at all. If not, and if he still has a copy, ask him if it would be possible for him to send you a copy, and perhaps share it with other retro Mac enthusiasts.

Doing so sometimes leads to success. Sometimes not. Doesn't hurt to try.

I also wonder what other Mac software he made. In his page, he makes it sound like it was quite a handful.

Great minds think alike... JT, you're beating me to the punch (or did I, lol!) I just sent him a very nice email, just introducing myself. Once he responds, then I can politely ask him about the software share! It beats bombarding him with emails!

He made a few fractal freeware items found on MIT's old Hyperdrive archives. He used to sell one fractal art product on a now-defunct site as well; from the looks of it, it was based on his freeware software.

Nothing yet, but I'll keep you posted. I'm hoping the email's still current, but I know people who check their less-used personal, hobby or side-gig emails very infrequently, so I'm hoping he reads and responds to it at some point. On the other hand, I do hope he's doing well healthwise.

Patience is key when you want something; I've added some software here this very way, so keep your chin up Smile

From that domain name, he's likely in Quebec; they've been pretty hard-hit with COVID-19. On the plus side, it may mean he's spending more time checking his old accounts Smile

That's what I'm hoping for; but he definitely speaks French Smile
