Big news! — March 25, 2015

A Mess O’ Trouble is now on the Mac App Store! Visit the game’s web site for more information on the new release!

Ray’s Maze games are a series of old-school adventure games. The player enters a set of interconnected worlds known as “Ray’s Maze” and explores them, searching for treasure, while overcoming obstacles and avoiding perils. The games emphasize solving puzzles through the use of common sense and ingenuity.

All these games were released as shareware for Macintosh computers in the 1990s. Currently, they are being updated and re-released for modern Macs, with A Mess O’ Trouble being the first to be released. If you do want to play the original shareware games, they are still available for download below. You will either need a Mac with a 68K or PowerPC processor or an emulator program that can emulate such a Mac.
