BZFlag for Mac

Editors' Review Staff Mar 25, 2013

The number of games for Mac has increased significantly in recent years. While simple, BZFlag for Mac is a fun yet challenging game for all but the most advanced gamers.

BZFlag for Mac comes in a zip file. Once set up, there are basic directions, but no known technical support. The game's interface is very basic and would have been more appropriate in the 1990s, but its overall look is functional. There is no option to try the game outside of a multiplayer battle, which leads to some awkward experimentation while others are trying to play a serious game. The first-person tank perspective works well and the game's objective is to capture the enemy's flag and defend your own. On a laptop, the controls that need a right click are difficult to manage without a mouse or joystick. Even though the gameplay is entertaining, advanced gamers would probably find the worlds and play less interesting. Since it's open source, the game does not require payments or donations for full functioning.

BZFlag for Mac provides entertainment and an easy learning curve and is suitable for basic and casual gamers.
