Info about the OSX version from his site (

"Here is a Mac OS X disk image file, containing a single monolithic application called "Puzzles". You should be able to download and open the disk image, then drag the Puzzles application to wherever you feel like keeping it; it should be entirely self-contained. However, please note that this application is UNSUPPORTED AND NOT KEPT UP TO DATE: my Mac stopped working in April 2012 and so I currently have no means to build, test or develop this port."

Too bad. It'd be nice to have someone able to maintain the Mac version (though I haven't encountered a single bug in it as of yet).

Alternative names for some of the puzzles featured are, alphabetically: Akari (Light Up), Cube, Fillomino, Futoshiki, Hashiwokakero (Bridges), Inertia, Mastermind, Minesweeper, Netwalk/Freenet, Nonograms, Peg Solitaire, Picross, Planarity, Same Game, Shikaku, Slitherlink, Sudoku, Tentai Show and Tents.
