Tommy is a Cherokee garage mechanic, refuting his heritage and undecided about his next step in life. His world comes to a halt when an extraterrestrial crisis forces him to awaken spiritual powers from his long-forgotten birthright. Abducted with his people to a menacing mothership orbiting Earth, he sets out to save himself, his girlfriend, and eventually, the entire planet.
Gravity Flipping – Manipulate gravity by shooting special targets located throughout the sphere. There are also zones in the world where gravity is automatically flipped in various directions.
Wall Walking – Wall walk surfaces allow Tommy to traverse the sphere’s walls and explore otherwise unreachable areas.
Death Walking – Death isn’t the end. After losing all of his health, Tommy enters the Death Realm. He must battle the wraiths of fallen spirits to regain both health and spirit energy before returning to his living body.
Spirit Mode – Tommy can use the power of his ancient ancestors to leave his body and enter a spirit form. Spirit mode allows Tommy to sneak up on enemies, as well as overcome the sphere’s many obstacles.

Still great even after all these years
It's definitely an older game (I feel old even saying that), but it definitely still shines. It had portals *before* Portal came out, and has all sorts of wacky gravity and trippy experiences. Great atmosphere and gameplay elements, too (the post-death spirit hunting is both great and also a good hand-holder for people who might be new enough to the genre to die alot).
It also doesn't hurt that Aspyr added some updates to this newer App Store release, namely the Casino mode (to play the minigames) and the ability to plug in your iTunes library into the jukeboxes (though it'd be great if album art also showed up).
Definitely worth your money.
Classic Story-Driven FPS
If you're looking for a GREAT first-person shooter/adventure for your Mac, PREY and BIOSHOCK are the games to get (and Modern Warfare, if you want a military shooter). You may be tempted to go for Doom 3. Don't. Good for its time, it just doesn't compare to this generation's console games. Acessible to new gamers and challenging for those of us who've probably spent more time than we should blasting through campaigns like this, Prey combines epic storytelling with great game mechanics. The hunted becomes the hunter. The control scheme is very simple, so you don't find yourself wishing for a console gamepad, -- though I recommend getting a gaming mouse. Have fun.
One of the few great OSX games around
As others have noted, Prey is a sight-and-sound pleaser to be sure. Graphics are smooth and fast on my 2.8Ghz MBP and the funky way this game plays with gravity shifting will keep you guessing on how best to get through levels.
I can't get over the few humorous moments put into the game, such as the scene where aliens are rocking out to the jukebox playing Judas Priest, "You've got another thing coming" right before you fight them. Hilarious. And poignant. Who said serious shooters couldn't be a little funny?
Visually this is almost as stunning as TRON 2.0 was when it was released but the levels and gameplay are more defined with a better storyline.
It's too bad the majority of OSX games are puny, childish cartoon-ish nonsense; deeply developed and visual stunners like this could easily be ported to Mac (Portal, for example) and why more aren't is strange, but Prey is definitely worth the money regardless how old it is.
