Does anyone know if there is a MAC version of DXBALL or DXBALL2.
My wife loves the game, and hogs my Pc to play it.
It owuld be nice to get her back on her PowerMac.

Mac users, phhhht
I'm 99% sure that there is currently no version of DX-Ball 2 for Macintoshes. The game was made for Direct-X, a Microsoft innovation. Your best bet is to get her a PC emulator and hope it works.

The joke is that DX-Ball 2 barely touches direct-x and was designed with porting to the Mac in mind.....Just no time...

The rest of the joke is: Dx-Ball was made for the Amiga computer first. It was called Megaball. (Megaball..(Ed + Al Mackey..GFX by Seumas McNally + Sarah Welch.. The author was Michael Welch..)) The Amiga computer and the Mac use the 68xxx series of Motorola computer chip. (NO INTEL inside) Therefore, a port to the Mac would of been easier then porting DX-Ball to the PC. Thanks to Seumas McNally, Megaball/DX-Ball, was ported to the PC
