Emulation
Guides on emulating older games

WingNuts 2: Raina's Revenge is the sequel to WingNuts: Temporal Navigator by Freeverse Software. Players navigate an airplane around a two-dimensional map while avoiding hazards and picking up "goodies" or bonuses. The map is initially filled with enemy planes and surface targets (ships, installations, etc) and the object of each level is to shoot down every plane, then destroy a large boss-plane.

WingNuts 2 takes you on a fantastic arcade journey to over 30 real (and not-so-real) locations and time periods as you hunt Baron Von Schtopwatch and the mysterious "Raina".

Play through time as you encounter enemies from the 1920s to the distant future. With over 100 real-world aircraft, helicopters, blimps, tanks, ships, and submarines, you'll never run out of things to shoot!

WingNuts 2 features dozens of "Boss" planes and ground units, a plethora of power-ups (including Super Mecha Mode) and a Flying Aircraft Carrier as your base of operations. The game sets a new standard for arcade action!

Advanced OpenGL and 3D particle effects allow you to take advantage of high-end graphics cards and the custom-built game editor lets fans create their own scenarios and share them online. An instant classic, WingNuts 2 was an Apple Design Award Runner-Up for Game of the Year!

Serial: 3010-1945-86XV-2102-RT04-6
A serial is required but online registration is not.

Installation for Mac OS X: Mount the downloaded ".dmg" file and drag the enclosed "WingNuts2" icon to a location of your choice on your hard drive. e.g. the Applications folder. Once in place, double-click the "WingNuts2" icon to play.

Compatibility
Architecture: PPC x86 (Intel:Mac)

Minimum system requirements: OS X 10.4 on an 800 MHz G4 with 512 MB of RAM, 32 MB of VRAM, and 950 MB of free disk space. The game is a Universal Binary.

I have tested it on a G4 PowerBook and a 2005 Power Mac G5 Quad 2.5 GHz with an nVidia 6600 AGP graphics card running Leopard Server 10.5.8. I must say that the graphics in this game are OUTSTANDING on the G5, ...twice as good as WingNuts 1 on the same machine.

hmm, all versions not working for me - maybe because i've erased my Tiger's networking extensions.

Main game also confirmed for working on at least El Capitan on a 2009 MacBook Pro.

Ooh, glad to see this here! It's a shame that Freeverse closed down, and a relief that their stuff got put up, since there was no way of recovering any of my registrations! I'd almost forgotten how awesome the theme was: https://youtu.be/fukBaFN4aho

While we appreciate the upload (you beat me to it, I was planning on putting this up!), the Author field is for the game's developer.

Strange thing, the game is Universal, but I seem to remember the scenario editor that comes with it doesn't work on Intel processors, only PPC. Very strange. So, I haven't had any chance to check that feature out!

Otherwise, a marked improvement over the original in many ways, even if I like how the original handles strafing a bit better.
