Please read this, and support game dumps if you can. Any little bit helps.

Here are some of the games that I have uploaded, mostly I use Macintosh Garden. Note that several of them are compatible with Windows. And ALL of them come with complete scans of the manual + packaging.

New addition: rarity rating out of 5 stars.

Yellow Brick Road I (★★★★☆)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/yellow-brick-road
Gadget Kanzenban (★★★★☆)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/gadget-past-future
Small House (★★★★★)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/small-house
Typing Fighter II (★★★☆☆)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/typing-fighter-ii
Alice (★★★★☆)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/alice- ... ive-museum
Horror Tour (★★★★☆)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/zeddas ... t-of-sheol
Kids Box (★★★★☆)
(this game is fun I promise!!)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/kids-box
Typing Of The Dead Mac (★★★☆☆)
(okay this game is a little bit newer but it works on Intel Mac!)
http://macintoshgarden.org/games/the-ty ... lariat-mac
Puyo Puyo Tsuu (★★★★★)
this is superior to the Windows version in that it uses PCM instead of MIDI music and also has the first game bundled in as a bonus.

Some of these are on consoles too. However the computer versions have a higher resolution and are generally better.

Mostly I have been focusing on Mac games but I would like to find more old Windows games as well, such as Alexworld which I bought recently.

And I have more games on the way, some of them which no one has ever heard of before. I will be posting all my latest dumps in this thread.

This isn't my dump, but it's a rare Mac game by the maker of Parappa the Rapper, involving his band PSY•S. The dumper told me that he is "90% done" with an English translation.

I've just pledged. Game suggestions I can think of:

•Clone Ranger
•Tonkin House adventures (Paradise Rescue, Nirvana: Zeta II)
•A5 Tours (or just A-Train 5 DirectX (Eternal))
•Both Samurai Mech games w/manual + scans (Macaw really needs scans to get past copy protection)
•Pink Gear series
•BLACK MAGIC (Windows successor to CRW wargames on PC-98)
•Dan
•Incarnatia
•Kaito Q/Neo Atlas
•NIRGENDS PowerPC
•Die Gekirin III (ClubShrimp needs some help finding it)

UPDATE (09/24/15): Macaw told me (via stream) that he's got a working copy of Nirvana: Zeta II!

Thank you very much

Also where did you find Samurai Mech? I know it was a free download at one point but the website disappeared

I don't have it, but the old Samurai Mech homepage (lost to the ages because it died and robot.txt prevents IA from letting us view it) was a means of requesting the game files + scans. Copies still go for sale on Yahoo! Japan but aren't in the best shape, still better than not being able to play them at all.

Yes, there wasn't always a robots.txt there, it was viewable but you had to request the download links to your email address, which made it impossible to download. There was also an email address, samuraimech@mac.com, which I tried emailing in Japanese but never got a response.

Does Macaw have the game files stored somewhere?

He got Samurai Mech 1.02 in 2012 but not the manual. And I'm assuming the copy protection's got a randomized element to it since there's multiple red-on-black pages in the manual dedicated to it.

I managed to find a few of these games for sale, also Jungle Park and The Saboten Man which I believe you wanted, but first I need to grab this very rare Japanese version of a certain adventure game which I just found, I hope it hasn't sold by the time I get it

Speaking of which, I'm also on the lookout for the Japanese versions of The Neverhood (PC) and The Last Express, if anyone knows where I can find a copy of either one

Now about NIRGENDS, this is a PowerVR game from my understanding, only runs on PowerVR cards so I don't think it would be playable by most people, but I passed it on to someone at vogons who's working a PowerVR wrapper and is interested in this kind of stuff, he might be able to get a copy

Yeah, I mentioned NIRGENDS knowing about the guy at VOGONs making that PowerVR wrapper, hopefully that's completed soon. I'll see if I can get Jungle Park myself, as there's multiple copies for sale on Amazon.jp worth trying.

NIRGENDS is on PCFX anyway, I dont think theres a difference besides maybe slightly better graphics. There was also a PowerVR version of Enigma (PS1 game by Koei) which I haven't bothered looking for.

I am interested in this Purevex game though: www.youtube.com/watch?v=92TQlPPIHY0

This has been dumped, it's a very small file I've never tested though. If you want it, I'll see that I post it this week.

You want to buy Revolte and Enigma? Or you have them for sale? I might be able to get Revolte for you if you need it.

I finished Tetsujin Returns on 3DO, it's okay, the plot is nonsensical. There's also an English release - "Iron Angel Of The Apocalypse: The Return". The first game is crap.

Please do! I wanna see if the in-game movies can be ripped, among other things.

PUREVEX is new to me, looks almost like a relative of Revolte.
