I recently acquired a Macintosh IIvx, complete with a 13" Color RGB monitor, keyboard, and mouse for $25. I know the IIvx is rated as one of the worse Macs out there, but for $25 I couldn't pass. Plus the guy threw in two minty complete games - Space Quest I and The Lost Treasures of Infocom (20 games in 1). The IIvx has a floppy drive and a whopping 2x CD Rom, so either format should work. I've never been one for either genre of games I got with the system, save maybe King's Quest, so I am looking for other types of games. An RPG would be nice, as would any platformer.

Additional Specs: System Software 7.1; 12,288K of total memory

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Honestly, there are so many things for Macs of that era for which you'd be better off just getting the PC version.

Must-haves are Cliff Johnson's Macintosh puzzle games, available at http://www.fools-errand.com/ .

The only RPG I can recommend is Taskmaker and its sequel. Technically, you need to buy it at http://www.robotroom.com/stormimpact.html , but the author also posted the registration information on Usenet long, long ago, so you can probably find it on Google Groups if you're cheap. ;)
