"This is a port of id and Raven Software's Heretic, available for the first time on the Macintosh. Heretic is a 3D first-person shooter in the same style as Doom and Hexen. It uses the same core engine as Doom, with a few modifications. It is the prequel to Hexen: Beyond Heretic, which was made available as a commercial release for the Macintosh back in 1995. Unfortunately, the original Heretic was never made for the Mac. I decided to port Heretic to complete the sequence and give Mac users the missing piece. This program will run both the shareware WAD file for Heretic (heretic1.wad) or the full commercial WAD file (heretic.wad)." ---from developer Brad Oliver's own "read me" file

Architecture: PPC

Minimum requirements: PPC, Mac OS 7.5 or later, Sound Manager 3.0, QuickTime 2.5, InputSprocket 1.2 for optional joystick countrol.

You know there's actually a mouse-look hack for this game here. It's for PC, but the source is available if anyone want to take a whack at porting it to classic Mac. It also works on Hexen.

If you like, although the Doomsday engine is relatively easy to set up and all games fit into the one application. Another way could be just giving people instruction on how to install the files correctly, instead of having to upload the game allover again.

When I've put in the 'multiple versions of one game' feature, should we upload the Mac OS X version?
