    Hi Elbert :) thanks for sharing this site.
    Question though: have you tried playing the games from this site? I've seen in the comments that some games (Worms, particularly) don't run properly in OS X . Would you know how to remedy that? Thanks!

    Most of the games found in this website were made to run on CLASSIC Mac OS only from as early as System 6 to Mac 7 to Mac OS 8.0 to 9.2. Even if you have PPC processor, it won't run in OSX. You need to boot to CLASSIC MAC OS natively and not via "classic environment".
