Good Games for Macbook Air (offline only)

#1krypt_1Posted 11/15/2013 12:05:30 PM
So I have a macbook air that I can game on at work. Obviously cant connect to internet or I could get busted.

I ordered Legend of Grimrock. Once Im done with that Im looking for suggestions on what else might be a nice performing game on the Macbook Air.

Turn based or user controlled is obviously better for those "interruptions"

I've been playing Papers, Please on my MBA lately. Loving it, although it's not for everyone.
There are tons of classic RPGs you could play if you're into that.
Terraria also plays flawlessly on an MBA.

Yep. On that note, Diablo 2 should run great on an MBA, but you'll need to install Windows.
In my earlier post I actually assumed you were running Windows in Boot Camp but perhaps you are not, in which case Terraria won't work. You could install Windows through Parallels however, I believe games run decently in Parallels.

i am running windows.
Thanks for the suggestions. Civ 5 is probably too taxing I would think.

Civ 5 actually ran OK on low on my 2011 MBA (Intel HD 3000), a bit choppy but playable (the worst was zooming in and out but I seldom do that anyway). I never tested it on my 2012 MBA (Intel HD 4000). Though I never got into a late game with more stuff going on either.
