Guides on emulating older games

Call to Power is a turn based empire building game. You start a civilization in the stone ages and lead them to the future through science, diplomacy, war, trade and other actions. Eventually you will be building colonies in space and cities in the ocean if you can survive.

The first download is the full, complete CD. The second download is the CD image, minus the audio tracks (due to size). So the game still has sounds, and most simple in-game music, but the top quality background music is gone.
It's a toast image that has been Zipped in OSX (right click "Create Archive"). Use the BOMArchiveHelper (right click) on the Zip to uncompress. I've also included the latest v1.2b update for Mac, in the Zip - so if you unzip on PC you'll hose it. I've included the updater patch as the second download link.
Unfortunately, I can't find a site hosting the updater, or a suitable manual, even in replacementdocs.

Atari still have a Mac support page:
but the update download links are dead. Buy Link: Civilization: Call to Power (Platform: Mac)

Architecture: PPC

Min Req:
180MHz PowerPC
CD-ROM drive
48MB free RAM (up to 105MB with v1.2b)
300MB disk
Mac OS 7.6
Thousands of colours.

Again, plays in classic, so emulators are untested.

The game doesn't suck, it's actually one of the best civs because it was the first to allow building cities in space and under water, had a massive library of troops that could be built and even touched on slavery before any other civ did at the time.
My only issue with the game, something that took a little getting used to was the idea of the public works fund. In previous civs, the settlers and their evolutions were the ones to build roads, irrigations etc. in this it's a general fund you put money into and that's it. no units required.
