Emulation
This game works with: SheepShaver,

   Retro is a modern adventure that recalls the golden age of arcade video games, when kids were fighting for the future of the Galaxy against unbeatable odds.

   Return to those days with your friends as you battle your way through a universe of random levels providing ultimate replay value. Take the controls of unique starships on alien worlds to overcome a myriad of foes. Go for it!

— Excerpt from Z Sculpt Entertainment:

The 1st DL is the official version in an OS X zip file - requires Mac OS X to extract correctly.

The 2nd DL has been repackaged as ".sit" for good backwards compatibility on Mac OS 8/9 systems. Requires StuffIt Expander 5.5 or newer to expand.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC (Carbonized)

Runs well in OS X 10.4.x

Sort of works in Sheepshaver with Mac OS 9.04; sound is choppy, and there's something wonky with the mouse pointer.

Thank you MikeTomTom for re-compressing the 2nd file (Retro 1.2), it now works perfectly under OS 9 with Stuffit 5.5. Thanks.

I confirm that the Retro 1.2.sit the 2nd download is corrupted. Virusbarrier x5 confirm this.

I confirm that the 1.2 archive is corrupted and so obviously, it crashes when launched under Mac OS 9. Stuffit even warns to use this file with caution because it could not be extracted correctly. The ZIP file (the other download link) does not unzip with Stuffit 5.5 because it says headers are corrupted, altough it might extract correctly under OSX. Can somebody here recompress the latter using Stuffit 5.5?
