I have the demo of the original Bumbler from an old MacAddict disk, does that count? They're all archived on this site now! It's great.

Adorable, fun, and above all, so quintessentially Mac, Bumble Bee-Luxe is a classic to end all classics. Nostalgia overload.

One of my favourite arcade games on the Mac. Clearly inspired by games like Robotron but puts its own spin on it, what with having to attack with your rear.

It also looks great, all the bugs are well animated, colourful and have behaviors inspired by the real-life insects.

Quite hard, though!
