Solarian II for Mac OS X

Holy crap — Ben Haller has ported Solarian II (a Galaga-esqe shoot-’em-up) to Mac OS X:

Solarian II was first written about 15 years ago, and was one of the first color games for the new color Macs that came out in 1988. It ran happily for years, but Mac OS X broke it — it never ran well under Classic. We kept getting email about this, and so we’ve ported it to Mac OS X. It’s now a native Cocoa app (!), and should be good to go for another 15 years, we hope!
