App Round-up: Great Games for Mac

Mac users aren't traditionally thought of as 'gamers', and up until recent years, finding games for the platform wasn't so easy - this is obviously no longer the case since the explosion of developers who came around to the idea that desktop gaming is no longer a Windows-only pursuit.

For this round-up, we've picked a selection of mac games you might not know about, but are worth checking out!

Neon Wars ($19.99 - Blitwise Productions) is a visually unique arcade blaster with some rather pretty particle effects, and a surprisingly addictive gameplay mechanic. With manic mouse-controlled shooting and a relentless wave of enemies, this should appeal to retro-purists and modern gamers alike.

Minigolf Mania ($19.95 - Top Meadow) Minigolf Mania brings some interesting power-ups to the putting green, which makes for a challenging and addictive game with some nicely presented cartoon-style environments. Multiple game-types and unlockables will keep you coming back for more.
