Squawwwk! Remember last issue, when I said I would show you something other than Cythera and Ferazel's Wand? Well, the news that everyone is chirping about is that Ambrosia is rereleasing Ares, by Nathan Lamont!
Ares is a hot, networkable space game that I've been addicted to ever since I picked it up. One of the first things I noticed about the intro was how cool it looked. Its scrolling text and images reminded me of classic NES openings from games long ago. But Ares is so much better, thanks to the power of the Mac, and Nathan Lamont's programming skills.
