This game works with: SheepShaver,

Note: This isn't the official Maelstrom! The classic PPC version works with Mac OS 9.0.4 - 9.2.2 with CarbonLib installed. This is a GPL'd version of Ambrosia's Maelstrom, ported by Sam Lantinga.

    The deadliest stretch of space known to mankind has just gotten deadlier. Everywhere massive asteroids jostle for a chance to crush your ship, and deadly shinobi fighter patrols pursue you across the asteroid belt. But the deadliest of them all is your sister ship, assigned to you on patrol. The pilot, trained by your own Navy, battle hardened by months in the Maelstrom, is equipped with a twin of your own ship and intimate knowledge of your tactics.

    The lovely Stratocaster R&R facility never sounded so good, but as you fire full thrusters to dodge the latest barrage you begin to think you'll never get home...

— excerpt: Official Maelstrom GPL site (Wayback Internet archive with working links to all 3.0.6 DL's). Available for Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and Classic Mac OS.

Top DL: version 3.0.6 for native classic Mac OS

2nd DL: version 3.0.6 for PPC Mac OS X

3rd & 4th: SDL files required by OS X version (SDL is included with classic version) extract and run the pkg installer[s].

[See Also]: Maelstrom 1.3 (Original) for the original classic released, shareware version of Maelstrom.

Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

From the official web pages FAQ:
Q: I am running Mac OS 8 and Maelstrom GPL won't start. What's wrong?
A: Maelstrom GPL is built with the latest Carbon runtime, which is usually only present on Mac OS 9. You may want to upgrade your system, if possible.

Do you have all the full non-shareware Ambrosia games like this one or Bubble Trouble, etc. Used to love those.

I killed the website again, trying to post 3Dfx Voodoo Mac drivers Sad

Both the links on this site are no longer working... There is a PPC only version of 3.0.6, but you will need to Google it Sad
