I think your plan works ;): Pangea Arcade is now the 3rd free game, it has 50 ratings (average: 4.5 stars) and lots of good reviews. So if you let it for free just a few more days, it could became the 1st free game...

The game is impossible to port in its current form, as it was made with Quickdraw 3-D in the days of yore. You would have to completely re-write the game to bring it to Mac OS X.

Trust me, we all would love to see Bugdom on Mac OS X. (as well as new games!!!) It's just that it's easier said than done.

Well I was thinking maybe he could just put all of the gameplay stuff into the Bugdom 2 engine and convert the models somehow. But then again, I am incredibly bad at programming-y stuff beyond VB :)

Woo hoo!!!!!!  Pangea Arcade is the #2 Top Free app now!  I think it may become #1 today at the rate things are going!  We had over 11,000 downloads of it yesterday!

The odd thing is that you'd think there would be some halo effect from that and we'd have seen a boost in sales of the paid apps.... not so.  It hasn't really had any effect at all that I can tell.  Surprising.

Ah, well, in any case it's a pride thing.  I just want it to be #1!

Enjoyed the free download so far.  I keep looking for a help file to show me the keyboard/mouse assignments for each game.  Can't find....  trial and error is getting me closer.  Did I miss it somewhere?

No, I think you didn't miss something.
But there is an Instruction Manual on the Pangea Website.

no controls work on my DL (the F1, F4 or esc do nothing) further, no controls seem to work on any of the games.
please advise.

A few people have reported that in their 1-star reviews, but I really don't know what the issue is.  Maybe just reboot the computer.

Installing Updater?

I happily downloaded this excellent trio of time waste...er, that is, games and am enjoying them completely. There was, though, a notification that a new version (1.0.8) is available from the website. I downloaded it, tried to launch it, and it's asking for a serial number. Since I download a free version from the App Store I didn't get a serial number. I still have the old version (1..0.7) on my computer which seems to work fine. I tried replacing the old version with the new one, but it tells me I don't have enough permission to do that, or some such thing. Is there some trick I should know about installing the new version? Thanks in advance for any help, and of course thanks in retrospect for making this game available in the first place!
