Is there a way to identify apps/games for early OS X on PPC?

Maybe this is a stupid question (go ahead and tell me, you won't hurt my feelings), but is there a way on the site to sort or otherwise find apps and games that are for early versions of OS X running on PPC?

I ask this because I just lucked into an iMac G4 running Tiger, so I'm looking for period-appropriate stuff. Maybe the best way is to use the release date?

Thanks; this is an amazing site!

Tiger (Mac OS X 10.4 to 10.4.11) had approx. 3 years of production from between 2005 to 2007 plus security & sundry updates until 2009. - Searching through the years 2005, 2006, 2007 you should see the bulk of software produced, that was designed to run on Tiger and earlier. Tho' because it had such a long production period you will find a lot of software from before and after those dates that will also be able to run under Tiger.

Additionally, as PPC Tiger supports Classic mode you will also be able to run a lot of Mac apps & games that ran on earlier Mac OS's from SSW 7.0 through to Mac OS 9.2.2
