Avadon: The Black Fortress is an old-school role-playing experience, and we mean oooooold school. It’s cut from the same cloth as Baldur’s Gate, Fallout, and Icewind Dale, and that, friends, is a very good thing.

In the future, if aliens should crash-land in both Tokyo and Baghdad, they’ll call on you to fight them. And Jason Statham’s voice will guide you. Or at least that’s how it is in Anomaly: Warzone Earth. Sort of a “reverse tower defense” game, it has you guide an armored column through fortified routes, providing upgrades, decoys, and repairs to keep your units alive. The end result is a real-time strategy game that pushes you to figure out the best possible route for your convoy while weighing the pros and cons of sending your units into harm’s way for additional funds to buy upgrades.
Other Mac games should prepare to cower in fear as the “ass-kicking, cigar-smoking, beer-chugging and babe-lovin’” action hero Duke Nukem will finally be arriving on the Mac this summer to save “Earth and our babes from hordes of invading aliens.”
