    I would also recommend the following,

    Cabal Online (http://cabal.com/)
    Vindictus (http://vindictus.com/)

  • http://www.3dy.ro/ Eduard M.

    You must be kidding… NONE of them available for Mac?

    • sdhgdf

      thats because mac sucks

      • Uknown

        So True

  • http://www.pobox.com/~meta/ mathew

    Since none of these work on the Mac, and are therefore not web sites, what on earth are they doing on web.appstorm?

    • edwinhollen

      Same question… This is a silly article considering you didn’t mention Minecraft.

      • aa

        minecraft is not free

  • maxime

    I’m wondering the same thing

  • http://fairheadcreative.com Adam Fairhead

    Platform-specific … boo.

  • Gee Gee

    Well, technically speaking this isn’t the mac.appstorm but the web.appstorm therefore they can post whatever apps for whatever platform on this blog, just because this site is more frequently looked at by Mac users doesn’t mean web.appstorm will cater only for the Mac community – hence why web not mac. ;)

  • Fuller

    What a lousy joke is that? None of them can be played on Mac. Useless. Pointless. I’ll quit following you.

    • http://www.3dy.ro/ Eduard M.

      Exactly.

  • http://Web.AppStorm.net Jarel Remick

    Hey guys, I didn’t realize these required downloads and did not run on Mac due to that reason. I’ll get with my writer and we’ll put together a list that aren’t platform specific and, as it should be, run in the browser or very closely.

    • http://www.3dy.ro/ Eduard M.

      Yeah, that’s really, really stupid. In fact, all their game reviews were lame, with only one or two games available for Mac – out of 50+!

      And I still don’t understand why the heck they posted them in Web.AppStorm, since they require download. Weren’t they bragging about their new and OMG AWESUM Windows.AppStorm?

      • http://Web.AppStorm.net Jarel Remick

        They still apply to the web since they’re all heavily web integrated, but these definitely would’ve been more “at home” on Windows.AppStorm.

        I’ll get with my writers and we’ll pull together a post that’s only cross-platform browser-based games, which is what you guys were really expecting.

        Thanks for the feedback everyone!

  • Matt Thomas

    Savage 2 is available on mac and runs great.

    But seriously I think you should consider the mac community more, I think a large chunk of your readers use macs.

  • Jay Christ

    What a bunch of crybabies! WAHHH MY MAC CANT PLAY THESE GAMES! Duh. It’s a freaking Mac; should’ve thought about your Mac purchase before you made it if you were interested in games.

  • Hutch28

    Savage 2 is fun but Savage: The Battle for Newerth was more original and a lot more challenging. Both games are for Linux, Windows and Mac.

  • Chuth

    Macs? Seriously? And you want to play games?

    Also “League of Legends is known for its fantastic graphics.” Are you fucking kidding me. Who wrote this ‘review’, a five year old who enjoys reading “Spot the Dog” ?

    Stumble fail.
