Mac is not the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “gaming”. Yes, mobile games are extremely popular on iPhone and iPad but when it comes to big, triple-A titles, Mas seems to stay behind PC and home gaming consoles. Even though Apple devices were always cutting edge, they are still not associated with video games.
You might not know this, but gaming on Mac computers is nothing new. In fact, the first Mac video games are pretty old and date back to the late 1970s. These games include titles such as Global War, Asteroids in Space, and Flight Simulator. The number of Mac titles never equaled (and probably never will) the number of PC or console games, but there were blockbusters and advanced titles as well. Myst (released in 1993), Sim City 2000 (1993), Wolfenstein 3D (1994), Command and Conquer (1996), and Diablo (1997) are just a few of them. And now? Look at titles like BioShock, DragonAge, and Guitar Hero. The Mac’s video game library may not be as extensive as PC’s or PlayStation’s but it certainly isn’t as bad as one might think. The iOS system is very fluid and efficient, and because of that gaming on Mac can be pretty entertaining.Beat 'em up games (also known as brawlers) are part of a very old video game genre originating from arcade. Typical beat’em up’s feature hand-to-hand combat between the hero (player’s character) and a hugely disproportionate number of various enemies. Games of this genre typically do take place in urban settings and feature crime-fighting plots, though some games may also employ fantasy or sci-fi themes. Traditional beat 'em ups take place in 2D levels, scrolling from right to left.
Beat’em up games are noted for their simplistic design and intuitive gameplay. Another hallmarks of the genre are cooperative mode and multiple player characters. All time beat’em up classics include such gems as Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, and Double Dragon. The most recent beat’em up games are Guacamelee!, Shank (both mixed with platformers), Devil May Cry, and God of War (both mixed with 3D hack and slash).
