Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

Deimos Rising is a computer game by Ambrosia Software, similar to many top-scrolling arcade shooters. The sequel to Mars Rising, it is available on Apple Macintosh and Windows platforms. It is similar to the scrolling arcade shooter, Xevious. The player commands a fighter-bomber airplane known as a VacFighter through twelve progressively more difficult levels. Some of the levels are named after ancient locations or battles, such as Thermopylae or Carthage.

The game builds on its predecessor by using greater colour depth (16 bit colour, rather than 8 bit as in Mars Rising), alpha transparency, motion blur, improved artwork and a wider range of enemies and weapons.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC PPC (Carbonized)

G3 or better, Mac OS 8.6 to Mac OS X 10.6. Not compatible with Mac OS X 10.7.
note: this is a PowerPC app so it must be running under Rosetta in OS X 10.6 and 10.5 on Intel Macs.

@MikeTomTom - The links are dead: Ambrosia's closed, and their website is gone. [edit] Ah, looks like it's a browser-dependent thing. It certainly hasn't been updated in a very long time, and their automated key-retrieval system doesn't seem to be working, either.

@Bugman:

As far as I'm aware, we still cannot host the full games or serials for Deimos Rising and Mars Rising yet, because of these page links.

This and Mars Rising (hey, any chance on getting that up here?) were REALLY good. It's such a shame Ambrosia's gone now.

With this modification I added (dL #1) the unregistered and registered game can see demo play for eleven of its twelve total levels.

Sorry - my bad. I didnt check the publisher's site. I've taken down the download link.

Not abandonware at all. Be careful about posting titles like this because the publisher will come down on the site if people are posting still-for-sale material. In fact, the owner of Ambrosia Software has seen this site because I specifically linked him to it to show him an old project he was credited on.

By the way - if the disk image posted is simply the same file as provided on the publisher's website, then I suppose that is not a problem. Smile

I don't think download is OK, but buylink (which I added) should be OK:

You can still buy the game.
About Mac OS / Mac OS X compatibility. The developer tells: Mac OS 8.6 or newer, including Mac OS X.
