Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, the next game in the popular franchise Geometry Wars, launched today for both PC and Mac. For those unfamiliar with the series, Geometry Wars is an arcade shooter where players will shoot through wave after wave of enemies to win, with the goal of surviving as long as possible and racking up points.

In the game, players take control of a ship and slaughter enemies that come in an array of geometrical shapes across 3D battlefields. Players earn weapons, bombs, and extra lives at regular intervals throughout the game, while an ever-increasing number of enemies continually spawn.


Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions offers more than 50 single player levels across two game modes, Adventure and Classic Arcade, and it offers both cooperative and competitive online multiplayer modes.

There are several 3D grids and more than 10 battle modes like Pacifism, King, and Claustrophobia, plus players can use four unique companion drones: Attack, Collector, Ram, and Snipe.

The game requires OS X Mavericks or OS X Yosemite, 1GB of storage space, a minimum of a 2.2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 4GB of RAM, and ATI Radeon HD 3870/NVIDIA 330M/Intel HD 3000 graphics or better.

Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions can be purchased for Mac via Steam or through GameAgent.com for $14.99. A Mac App Store version will also be available, as soon as it's approved.

Just thought for a moment this other game looks like a cheap rip off version of Stardust...

Geometry wars came out 2003, super stardust in 2007.

Why do apple customers always see a ripoff in everything? Paranoia?

Super Stardust HD was an update of Stardust, which was originally an Amiga game from 1993 (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stardust_(video_game)) (and a sequel from 1996, Super Stardust (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Stardust)).

But of course it's all just Asteroids (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asteroids_(video_game)) anyway so on one level I'd agree it's silly to be arguing about what is the more original game.

Super Stardust HD is great though. This looks decent too.

Don't forget Police Quest! I have so many awesome memories of theses games. I remember the days that my parents would take me to Egghead Software and I would stare at the boxes for hours wishing they were mine. The cool thing about it all is I still have all of them in their original boxes stashed away in my closet. I would play these games on my uber Tandy 1000HX computer for hours and hours at a a time.
