Mac OS X on this title is native, or Classic Environment only?

BTW: This game will ask for the disc on the Earthquake level, but there is an easy way to do away with it. After installation, delete this folder: /Applications/Tetris Elements/Tetris/Eathquake
Then replace it with this file found in the iso: /Tetris Elements/DATA/Tetris/Earthquake

The Earthquake folder has a few items that are deliberately left out during the installation, but you can either compare and find which things are missing, or just replace the folder. Won't ask for the disc after!

Yes, everything now is bloated. Even games for portable gadgets insist on using thousands of colors and storing megabytes of fancy graphics just to depict a square or triangle on the screen.

174MB for Tetris. Wow. I used to waste hours productively playing this on a MacPlus.

It's possible this might work with OS 8.6; I haven't tested that. I'm not sure what the minimum version of OSX is, but it's definitely PPC only.
