    Ipad games for mac?
    Hi,

    I have an ipad, and had been in the itunes store looking through the kids games. They all give the option to buy for the ipad or the iphone. I wanted to get those games for my old desktop power mac that I gave to my kids- will these ipad/iphone games be able to be played on the computer, or is there a computer-version of the same games? Thanks,

    Jodi

    No, they cannot be played on a Desktop OS.

    Whether there is a version that is playable on whichever OS you have would depend on the individual game and whether that developer also made one for it.

    Even though CodeSamurai used a 2008 model all of these will blitz on the current machines. Didnt compile a list but he has tested quite a few games over the years. Hope its of some help to someone
