What is Pingus?

Pingus is a free Lemmings-like game covered under the GNU GPL. It features currently 22 playable levels and runs under a wide variety of operating systems (Linux, Windows, etc.)
The Game

Pingus has started at the end of 1998 with the simple goal to create a Free (as in freedom, not as in free beer) Lemmings™ clone. The Free means you get the sources and are allowed and encouraged to change and distribute them. You basically get everything that I used to create this game. In the years it has grown than quite a bit over the original goal and become something more than just a clone, we have original artwork, a built-in level editor, new actions, multiplayer and a few other features.

No Dancing Queen, no SheepShaver, by mentioning the PowerPC compatibility I'm speaking about Mac OS X only.
This game isn't compatible to earlier Mac OS versions, so it doesn't run in SheepShaver.

Btw, this .dmg file mounts fine in SheepShaver w/o having to intialize it the first time. Wink
(I just wanted to know about SheepShaver, so I mounted it in the emulator just to see)

Does that mean that it works in SheepShaver (PPC)?

Thanks, Euryale, for uploading this one! Smile
Finally, it's a Mac OS X-only game, but it's already Universal Binary to be compatible with PowerPC and Intel-based Macintosh models.
