Hi and welcome to gameboomers! smile

Im sure you will stick around for a while... Im playing my games on a Mac as well and have to resort to using VirtualPC for PC games even though i don't recommend it.

Personally i haven't played RHEM before nor read any reviews enough to recommend any similar games for you. However, i have no doubt that in soon time many of our lovely members will advise.

Do these games neccesarily have to be for the Mac only? Or are you open to the PC versions as well?

Riddle of the Sphinx has a Mac version.
Timelapse has a Mac version.
Myst, Myst Masterpiece, and RealMyst have Mac versions, though you need a fast computer for RealMyst.

Riven works with either PC or Mac.
Myst III: Exile works with either PC or Mac

Morpheus works with either PC or Mac.
Chemicus, Physicus, and Bioscopia all work with either PC or Mac.

I've heard there is a Mac version of Amber, but it's very hard to find.

Alida is made for Mac only. There are separate versions for OSX and for "OS9 and earlier."

Well, I don't know how long you've been playing adventure games but if you haven't played RIVEN (or the other Myst games)they are all available for Mac.

Virtual PC software allows one to simulate WinXP (or older Win versions) on the Mac platform. It is slow, choppy and at times the words and sounds don't synch even on my iBook G3 700, 384RAM. However im willing to go all lengths to play all these games rite now -no thanks to all the great reviews on GameBoomers! <img border="0" title="" alt="[Razz]" src="tongue.gif" /> Well to be frank, im going to get a PC desktop sooner or later. Do a search online for more info....

Games i have on the Mac -no idea if they are RHEM-like...

-Obsidian
-Morpheus (hybrid CDrom)
-Dark Eye (hybrid CDrom)
-Bad Day on the Midway (hybrid CDrom)
-Zork Nemesis

CD Access has Mac games. wink

Under Movies, I recommend Gadget.

Under Role Playing (these are adventure games they just put them under the wrong heading. wink ) I recommend Titanic An Adventure Out of Time, Journeyman Project 3, Myst Exile, Dust, Crystal Key.

Not very RHEM-like, but other good games for the Mac are Gabriel Knight 2, Phantasmagoria, Broken Sword (Circle of Blood), Atlantis 1 and Lighthouse (hybrid game if you find version 2.0).

Welcome to GameBoomers.

I would recommend all of the above and also Zork Grand Inquisitor which is also available at MacPlay along with Real Myst.

Zork Grand Inquisitor is a very humorous and very well done adventure game.

Take care and have fun,

Mr. Bill

Secrets of the Luxor is also a Mac/PC hybrid.

I suggest that after playing ZGI go to Mr. Bill's site and get his list of "Fun Things To Try", and have lots more fun with the game. It's hilarious.

Hugs, Cheryl

thank you for all your suggestions, as a neophyte game player, I see bankruptcy ahead....
I am researching virtual pc, and getting conflicting opinions, while my ibook is getting impatient -- any else use virtual pc on their mac.

Hi minstrum....

The disease GameBoomers suffer from is called BAAGS. You can read about it Here. laugh

As for VPC....I had the old one and it ran like a turtle. I understand the newer version is much faster, but like you I have heard conflicting opinions and.....not all games will run on it. I started gaming with a Power Mac. I still have it. All my old favorites play on it. After the VPC failed for me I finally broke down and got a PC. I'm so glad I did. Not many games ported to the Mac any more. frown You can get a brand new Dell for $499 as opposed to $129 for the VPC. You still have a lot of Mac games to play for a while though. wink

BTW.....Welcome to GameBoomers! Sorry I forgot to mention it earlier.

Some other Mac adventure games that I've played:
STARSHIP TITANIC (my first adventure game and all-time favorite)
GOLDEN GATE (a mystery that takes place in San Francisco)
TIMESCAPE: JOURNEY TO POMPEII
DERRAT SORCERUM (novice wizard saves the world)
SAFECRACKER (terrific puzzle game)
THE SPACE BAR (funny character interactions; tough puzzles but good)
On my shelf waiting to be played are THE MESSENGER, THE DIG, and THE FEEBLE FILES.
