I'm working on a collection of ShareWare Mac games from the 1980s:

For ease of use, the games are all being presented as disk images that can be mounted in Mini vMac.

I'm only looking for shareware/freeware games.

And only stuff from the 80s!

If you've got some of that, do pass it along. Unless anyone gives recommendations or passes something along, I will just comb through the Macintosh Garden alphabetically...

Just for fun, I guess. If I don't limit myself, there is probably a thousand pieces of software I could upload...

Aah. I would think that Mac Plus and System 6 compatible would be a little bit broader range of SW... and it might include some Sim games! I like the sim games. :P

The sim games are commercial and cannot be distributed freely. We try to keep this site free of illegal downloads (and direct links to illegal downloads).

Is it freeware/shareware?

I've been adding games alphabetically, but I will skip right down to S. Just for you!

Not sure, but I've been using it, and haven't noticed anything saying it's shareware, so I assume it's probably freeware/commercial...

Just tried it out, and it is definitely commercial software. :(

I cannot add it.

Rescue! is free now, and I think it dates back to the 80's. Not sure where to find it, though.

It is from 1993!!

So it doesn't make the cut. :(

But here's a link for all the people:

http://www.macgamefiles.com/detail.php?item=14030

More info:

Anyhow, now that I am home from vacation, I will upload a few more old games.

Now updated to include 27 classic games, including the original Daleks, which may have been the first freeware game for the Mac!

Now updated to include 33 old games and applications!

I really liked Ford Simulator II:

It is an advertisement for the hottest cars of 1989.

And I also liked this early 3D modeller a lot:

I added two new games, and one old version of an existing game!

This was because I received some game files via e-mail! Horray! Please send games or at least make requests to me via this address:

We're now up to 50 games and apps. The fiftieth is a very special one... Kid Pix. Now available is the original shareware version of the classic children's art program from 1989:
