Playing 32-bit games on newer Macs

If you've bought a 32-bit game for a newer Mac that isn't compatible, consider the following solutions:

  1. Steam's Suggestions:
  • Check out this guide on Steam. If you've updated to macOS 10.15 Catalina, you might want to install macOS 10.14 Mojave on a separate APFS volume on your machine, alongside Steam. Doing so lets you switch to macOS 10.14 upon restarting, enabling you to play all 32-bit Mac games. Further details can be found on the provided link.
  • Another option is using Boot Camp on your Mac to run the games in a Windows environment. Additional details about Boot Camp are available via the link.
  1. Alternative Software Solutions:
  • Consider using Crossover which enables many Windows games to run on your Mac. They offer a free trial which can be accessed through the provided link.
  • Parallels is another option you might find useful.
