• THREE GAMES IN ONE
• IN STEREO 3D WITH 3D GLASSES
Pangea Arcade is a collection of three blistering action games based on arcade classics: Nucleus, Warheads, and Fireworms. All three are action arcade games based on arcade classics that have been beefed up to the extreme with incredible graphics and sound, and have innovative new gameplay elements that make these twitch-games some of the most fun games Pangea Software has ever produced.
You can play the game in normal video mode, or if you have a pair of 3D "anaglyph" glasses (red-blue or red-cyan glasses) then you can play in vivid stereo 3D!

Minor tweaks. Added localizations to app description.
Best Free Game on MAS So Far!
It took me a while to get adjusted to the gameplay of these, but I've been playing Nucleus a lot.... So far, this is the only free game in the Mac App Store that I have paid any attention... Kudos for Pangea Software for keeping this classic freeware alive and putting it in the App Store.
Three classic arcade games are cloned and packaged as a single release... and given some new life with great graphics, performance, and overall playing feel. Fireworms is a Centipede clone, Warheads is Missile Command clone, and Nucleus is an Asteroids clone.
Pros: Free, graphics and sound are awesome, gameplay is good, if not addicting. Those who like the old school arcade style games should love this.
Cons: No built in documentation, can be take a little while to understand how to play the games and use controls. Documentation can be found online by visting the Pangea support website. Doesn't seem to support gamepads and joysticks.
Defines High action arcade
When I play two of these games, I sometimes feel like I'm getting a mild cardio workout...the excitement builds and builds. Nucleus is absolutely addicting.... better than Asteroids or Maelstrom. It is very difficult to master, but once you get the hang of the controls you can get to the higher levels (8 or 9) frequently. I've never gotten higher than level 10. Graphics and sound are superior, and the soundtrack is very good. Fireworms is my second favorite. I've already played 9 levels, after which it states 'You Win' and you're finished. Still, it is a challenge and a great way to pass the time. Warheads reminds me of Missile Command, which I never mastered, and I haven't played this version very much, but the graphics and sound are great. I would like to find more games that have this level of playability. Good job, Pangea!
Grab it ASAP - this is a GREAT (set of) game(s)!
Pangea's software is always excellent - and to have this set of 3 games available so cheap, is a wonderful surprise. These are not simple shareware (a.k.a. "shovelware") games, but are top-quality products, which - more importantly - are incredibly FUN to play. All are actually BETTER than the arcade classics which they pay homage to, IMHO, since the gameplay, graphics, and sound have been updated so much. (Note: If your computer can handle it, boost the "Bling Factor" to "High" and enjoy the incredible over-the-top effects)
A truly great, GREAT set of games - kudos again to Brian Greenstone and the crew at Pangea for all their work.
