Freeverse abandonware (OS X)

Hey guys,

In case you didn't see this blogpost on freeverse they have discontinued the following titles:

Airburst
Burning Monkey Casino
Burning Monkey Mahjong
Burning Monkey Puzzle Lab
Burning Monkey Solitaire
Enigma
Periscope
Squabble
ToySight
3D Bridge
3D Crazy 8s
Euchre Deluxe
Hearts Deluxe
Pitch-Setback
Spades Deluxe
CrossCards
X-Words Deluxe

I think that since these games have been discontinued they should be uploaded here. Does anyone have copies of these games?

Perhaps the good folk at Freeverse might be willing to provide those files themselves?

They could release the games for free, maintaining copyright control and allowing other sites to shoulder the burden of maintaining the files for download. A number of authors have done that once the earning potential of their software has pretty well expired.

I know that Burning Monkey Solitaire, Hearts Deluxe, Spades Deluxe and perhaps even Euchre Deluxe (and some others in that list) were all available on 68k/PPC long before they may have been ported to OS X. So any of those pre-OS X versions would be welcome, surely.

I know I would like Euchre Deluxe if it exists for 68k/PPC - I'd like it even better if Freeverse were to make them available.

I can probably find most of these games (unregistered,) on MacAddict CDs I have. If Freeverse would be willing to provide registration keys, that would work well for us.

I loved playing AirBurst on my PowerMac 6100. Laughing out loud
Edit: Aww... MacAddict CDs only have the demo of AirBurst... *sniff*

the classic, unregistered versions of some of these (Enigma for example) are on the same disc image as Deathground.

Can someone upload Airburst Classic v1.055, please ? It was requested some time ago: Link as no longer available at the original developer's website in its original Carbonized version runnable under the classical Mac OS 9.

Another searched games from the same developer: Bushfire v1.11, Airburst Extreme v1.01, Toysight Gold v1.1.2.
