The top Mac games of April

By Ric Molina of MacGamer

I know I said something similar last month, but nothing comes close to this past April in terms of quality Mac games released. In fact, I would go as far as to say that April 2017 is the most exciting month for Mac gaming I have ever seen.

That’s quite a statement, but the games are there to back it. In April there were three highly anticipated AAA games, two remasters of beloved classics and a few indies that first killed it on Kickstarter and now are killing with great reviews.

You know how I only include the top highlights to the New Mac games page? Well, April saw 10 highlights and these are my favorites:

Total War: Warhammer. Following the Total War formula, this is an addictive turn-based strategy game with colossal, real-time battles. Plus, Total War: Warhammer for Mac introduces legendary heroes, giant monsters, and flying creatures for the first time, making this entry the most beautiful and unique so far.

Guardians of the Galaxy. Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy is Telltale’s latest adventure game. In Guardians of the Galaxy for Mac, our heroes discover an artifact of unspeakable power. Each Guardian has a reason to desire this relic, but so does a ruthless enemy who will stop at nothing to get it.

F1 2016. F1 2016 is the latest Formula 1 racing simulation. F1 2016 for Mac is one of the first games to use Apple’s Metal API and it shows. This entry looks amazing and goes deeper than ever, allowing you to work with your agent, engineer, and team.

Planetscape: Torment Enhanced Edition. The original Planetscape: Torment, released in 1999, is considered a masterpiece. And if you haven’t played it, Planetscape Torment: Enhanced Edition for Mac leaves you no excuse: it includes gameplay updates, bug fixes, remastered music, 4K support and more.

Hollow Knight. Featuring a gorgeous hand-drawn 2D style, Hollow Knight is an epic action adventure game taking place in a ruined kingdom of insects and heroes. Explore twisting caverns, battle tainted creatures and befriend bizarre bugs.

Yooka-Laylee. Yooka-Laylee is an open-world platformer from the creative talent behind the Banjo-Kazooie. Explore huge, beautiful worlds as buddy-duo Yooka and Laylee embark on an epic adventure.

But there’s more, such as Scanner Sombre, Everything, and Flinthook. As always, you can check out all new releases and upcoming Mac games on this page.
