Guides on emulating older games

OIDS.X is the Mac OS X remake of the classic Mac arcade-style action game: OIDS by FTL. Rescue the OIDS from the Fiendish Biocretes who are turning them into vending machines and household appliances! Fuel your ship, charge your shields, and blast off to adventure as you challenge planetoid after planetoid of devious gravity traps, treacherous teleport puzzles, and wave after wave of Hell Jets, Heat-Seekers, and Burst Orbs! Create your own games with the OIDS construction set. Design your own planetoids and puzzles in minutes with simple cut-and-paste operations. It's easy! Make new games for yourself or trade 'em with your friends. (Product Description)

This is the unregistered version. I do not have an unlock key and Xavagus Prime Software seem to have ceased trading.

The manual is available on-line here via the Wayback Machine and also in the download itself.
