Our friends at Ambrosia Software just told us about their 15th Anniversary Games Bundle, and if you're looking for a great gift for the Mac gamer in your life, this is a great deal.

The $19 bundle includes six games from Ambrosia's stable of fun and creatively-written games for the Mac: Apeiron, Bubble Trouble, Redline, SketchFighter, Aki Mahjong, and Darwinia.

Apeiron and Bubble Trouble are arcade-style, friendly games with bright graphics and entertaining game play for kids and adults alike. Aki Mahjong is an elegant take on the tile-based Chinese Solitaire-type game.


The hand-drawn style of SketchFighter makes it truly unique.

SketchFighter is designed in a pen-and-ink on graph paper motif. You control a 2D space ship, zooming and battling through a 2D maze filled with bugs, bosses, and puzzles. This one is an old favorite of mine I've featured before and is worth the price of the bundle alone.

Darwinia is a real-time strategy game combining 2D characters ("Darwinians") in a fractal-based 3D landscape. Your mission is to protect this virtual world from a deadly computer virus that has been unleashed on the poor inhabitants. Rich graphics and sound add to the unique concept to make this a truly mesmerizing game. If you've been looking for something unique and challenging, this game is in a class by itself.

If you want to take advantage of this offer, you'll have to navigate to Ambrosia's site (linked at the top) soon; this deal is only good through Christmas Eve.
