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.

Something worth adding to this thread for comparisons and data ~ Unofficial Macbook Gaming Thread 2008 Models

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

Cheers

EDIT :

Any good games for Mac OS X intel
Mac games at the Expo 2008 ~ MacForums Blog Couple years old but long list over 4 pages

CogFrog Studio's ~ Photography, Apps and Web Development
