For System 7.0 - 7.6
This game works with: Basilisk II, Mini vMac II

An alien race targets the earth. As a result, the earth undergoes massive natural disasters on a global scale, ranging from earthquakes to volcanoes. Countries suffer economic crises as food sources grow scarce. As a result, the Redmund Institute sends Alpha Team to investigate a UFO sighting. Alpha Team vanishes. This is where you come in. You take the role as the leader of Beta Team, and your mission is to pick up where Alpha Team left off. You customize your character by editing basic stats, which include: strength, reflexes, intelligence, spirit, and education. Then you choose from a roster of personnel to assist you.

The Earth is under attack by aliens. They have started disasters all across the globe, including volcanoes, tsunamis, and earthquakes. The Redmund Institute sent Alpha Team to stop them. They failed. Your mission is to find out what happened to Alpha Team, and continue their mission to the underwater alien base.

Arc of Doom is an educational adventure game; pick your stats, pick a partner, (your choices will change the story) and explore the Redmund Institute. Talk to everybody, inspect everything, and watch your back.

Excerpt: MobyGames

Alternative DL: Arc of DOOM.sit (Mediafire)

Architecture: 68k PPC

The "Redmond Institute" mentioned on the back cover is a typo (screenshot #3).
Throughout the game, the institute is named as being the "Redmund Institute" (screenshot #7).

Runs well including sound playback in Mini vMac II, Mac II variation (8bit build) and SSW 7.1.1

If accessing DL #2 via a classic Mac OS, use MacZip for the extraction of the "" archive. This will ensure the extracted .iso is then "double-click" mountable, if the Virtual CD/DVD Utility is also installed.

Does this also run on system 6 or is it specifically for System 7.0+?

It's a Macromedia Director 4.x" based game. It's requirements will be the same - Systems 7.0+

Its system requirements are very low so it seems strange that its minimal Os requirements are System 7.

Stap waining! Here it is.

While the learning part is really interesting, the embarrassing story mode is for hard-boiled trash fans only.

Very nice, not terribly well-known game from the multimedia-cdrom era. This one has more care and detail put into the story than most. There is enough to keep you occupied for a while before the game even begins.

Very nice to find here. I bought this ages ago and found a (rather unstable and prone to crash) Windows version inside my Mac jewel case.
