Also can you add to your list Mystery Case Files: Return to Ravenhurst does not run under Lion.

It tries to open but just comes up with errors.

Hello,
Video game: Command & Conquer Generals, Command & Conquer Generals Zero Hour do not work under Mac Os X 10.7 Lion.
Please kindly make it to work with OS X 10.7 Lion. Thx

Get Command & Conquer Generals "Deluxe Edition" working on Lion (I've Tested it on Mac OS X 10.7.3).

My Deluxe Edition was installed when I had "Snow Leopard" it stopped working after I upgraded to "Lion" for obvious reasons. I did the below now I play with no issues at all.

Simply download this file from here http://www.macgamefi...com/item/18132/
then install it.

Note: Make sure you have at least a non-working copy of Command & Conquer Generals installed.

I was wondering will Cities in Motion game work on iOS Lion? I am planning to upgrade to Lion, and now Apple announced iOS 6 coming this fall. I think there's going to be a lot of compatibility issues when new iOS 6 comes. Does anybody have any clue what will happen?

Jayson,

Cities in Motion is fully compatible with Mac OS X Lion. The next version of the Mac OS is Mountain Lion. IOS 6 is for iphone, ipads, and itouches only.

On my computer, Scrabble does not work on Lion

Plus all the other games mentioned on here. I have a lot of $$$$ spent on Macgamestore and won't buy any more from them. Their reply to my inquiry was, in essence, "It's Apple's fault so live with it". If I buy more, what happens on the next OS upgrade?

If Scrabble was sold anywhere else, it still won't work in Lion. Its not the fault of any store for developers who no longer update their products for new hardware and operating systems. System requirements are shown, if you do not have the requirements to run a given piece of software, then you must write too and urge the DEVELOPER of the software to support what you have. Stores only sell what is given to them.

I bought a game 15 years ago for my Mac Plus. It doesn't seem to run on my Intel Mac OSX 10.6... waaah! Should I blame the store who sold me this game? No, thats absurd. Today is no different for OLD games that do not run on NEW systems.

I'm upset with apple more than anything for coming out with an OS that broke so many of my old games.

The new Mac Game Store App (now open beta and fully functional) solves the problem of games that won't pass gatekeeper rules in 10.8 (Mtn Lion). If you have gatekeeper enabled, and want to download demos or purchases, you will need to use the new Mac Game Store App.

You can thank Apple for Gatekeeper. You can thank them for no longer supporting PowerPC software in Lion, and removing Rosetta. I'm sure in 10.9 Apple will drop all Carbon support to break even more old/current games. This is a cost of 'upgrading'. I have an older Mac just for the sole purpose of running games I have that no longer work on the newer OSX. It is the only way I can ever play those games again.

Sure Apple just says "ask the developer to update their software", but there are tons of games out there that will never be updated (either the developers don't care, or don't know how).

As for Scrabble... maybe we can just hope a new developer comes around and makes a newer, better scrabble that runs on the newer Macs of today. I'd make one, but I really don't have the time :)

If anywhere on the store you see missing system requirements that are needed. Inform the store staff immediately so it can be adjusted. Sometimes some things slip through the cracks.

Luxor Mah Jong doesn't work. Can we get refunds for games that don't work after the 7 days? I bought the Luxor bundle for $29.99 and only 2 of the 4 games work. I wrote to support but have received no response.
