Android (game) Demo

Year 2008 Universal

Puzzle game from Jadeware. The website is gone, and your computer's networking needs to be disconnected to play this. Android looks French in origin and was started in year 2002 long before that other famous Android thing. This folder was updated in 2008 Universal Binary and requires 10.3.9 or Tiger/Leopard or higher. 2009 is when the other Android sapped this name, and this game began fading into history.

The game is like Lode Runner. It's a single-screen (non scrolling) platformer involving gold and bombs. The goal is get Android to exit. And all the gold and treasures for points without caught by bad guy on level. You will only play first ten or twenty stages of demo.

This games will work in mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8 but you have disable the internet. If have net barrier installed in mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8 and on net barrier menu you can set net barrier to no networks. That will disable the internet. That will run Android.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

OS X 10.3.9 and higher.

This idea works for me. I use net barrier for both os x and set no network. Both games works in mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8.

Could be crashing upon the network interaction. Both dLs work for me both OS 10.4 & 10.5.8 Mirror Door 2003 Radeon 9600. But I have network not connected, in fact I have both major Network types (Ethernet , Firewire) disabled at system extensions. Hopefully just network connection off can let it play for you.

Thank you for fix the game. My old game did not work for me on mac os x 10.4.11 or mac os x 10.5.8 on Power mac G4 1.25 Ghz Mirror door 2003 with Radeon 9800 with 128Mb with 2G of Ram.

I Retested both game on mac os x 10.4.11 and mac os x 10.5.8. They both crashed on both. The both games will load to checking online scores. Then both games will crashed.

I made a 2nd download by hacking the first download. These are actually the full non-demo versions but aren't unlocking while there have been serials plugged in. This native Mac OS X game is near to being lost to time, so I intervened. I fixed a spelling mistake in the game file, i erased unnecessary files cutting the package length in half because there were two sets of files duplicated, and I managed to increase the number of playable "stages" from 10 to now 20.

Game has 5 Levels (called "Episodes" in-game) and each episode has 20 stages, total 100 stages. The 1st dL demo stops at stage 10. The 2nd dL demo has all 100 stages unlocked but the demo identifier is allowing just the first 20. Completing stage 1-9 sends you to the next stage, but, successfully completing any of stage 10-20 ends the demo and quits the program automatically. It's probably easy to hack further eventually unlocking this whole game. I can play stages 21-40/41-60/61-80/81-100 by renaming files but these newly playable Episodes are all skinned the same as Episode 1 when each Episode was supposed to have its own graphics set.

Works 4me 10.4.11 and 10.4.8 , nice little game but it is simply a Demo and Lode Runner. With a name like Android, can't find it by searching...
