Guides on emulating older games

Acropolis is a puzzle game built for wordsmiths. To play, you must click on adjoining tiles (each with its own letter) to form words. When you form a word, new letters appear in their place, and the tiles housing those letters turn gold. Once you’ve turned all tiles on the screen gold, you’ll proceed to the next level. You can form words using as few as three letters, but you’re rewarded with power-ups and other treats for using five or more. Some power-ups add shuffle points, for example (allowing you to shuffle the existing board if you get stuck), or get hints. Others blast random tiles to gold, serve as wild letters, or give you extra turns. Some tiles add challenge to the game: the triple tile, for example, turns gold only after you’ve used it in three different words. The tar tile reverts back if you use it for more than four words. Successfully completing certain tasks—such as reaching certain point values, creating palindromes, and avoiding three-letter words throughout an entire level—will earn you special trophies. There are dozens of levels to explore, each more difficult than the last. (Macworld, Jan 26, 2006)

I got the GameHouse version from a Wayback Machine archive of a MacGameStore download server. Both the GameHouse and MacGamesStore versions are universal binaries and will be the same apart from the DRM front end. All of my game uploads over the last few days are from that archive. I try not to upload the same game from different providers unless there is something different about the game (version number/architecture) or we have a serial for one and not the other.
