It has been three years since Rollie McFly rid the Bugdom of the evil King Thorax and his minions, but the Bugdom can still be a dangerous place as our new hero Skip is about to find out. While on his way to visit his family on the far side of the Bugdom, a Bully Bee swooped down and stole Skip’s knapsack. Your job as Skip is to track down the Bully Bee and get your knapsack back. The chase takes place mostly in and around a house.

You will make new friends in the Bugdom who will help you through each area. Keep an eye out for Sam the Snail and Sally the Chipmunk. Sam will usually make you prove your worthiness before he will help you, but Sally is just interested in gathering acorns, so be sure to brings lots of those to her. Additionally, the same Buddy Bugs that helped Rollie McFly defeat King Thorax will help you defeat most mean enemy bugs that you encounter.

Bugdom 2 is a 3D action-adventure game suitable for all ages.

Is there a version that will run with the latest version of Mac? (It doesn't support the 32-bit version from the App Store sadly...)

No idea about the apple store. Try the support link to get the email address and see if you get a response to wanting to give them some money. The UB is there to download and I assume they'd like some $$$ for it. Maybe the key you'd get with the store purchase would work with the UB.

I see what you are saying, but the only way to buy the Full Version via any of the links is back to the Snow Leopard version in the Apple Store.

Says 10.6 or later in the store version.

There appears to be no way to buy the PPC Full Version.

Without a key #, it's just a demo.

@OpenSourceMac: I don't know which link you are trying, but both the "Download (External Link)" and the "sold via the Pangea site" link in the description lead to the v3.1 download links page for the full (Universal Binary) game, suitable for Tiger 10.4 and above - a 133MB download.

The link no longer connects to the PowerPC version at all (the link forwards to the Snow Leopard version). Does anyone have the PPC full-version?

Uploaded the demo of Bugdom 2 v1.0.3 from MacAddict #79 Cover disc here. The latest PowerPC (as opposed to Universal) binary version, compatible with both OS 9 and X, is 2.0.1. I have also uploaded that updater, sourced from pangea software via wayback machine's help.

Older versions and 3.0.x versions are difficult to find, however. Unlike with regular apps, I believe games are desirable to be had in as many official versions as possible, because from a technical point-of-view, each version represents a different game.

Just getting that thought out there.
