For the first time in over 20 years, we are heralding the return of a much loved piece of gaming history with the classic RPG, Wasteland!

Mutants. Again. Even more than there were last time: they seem to materialize out of the very grains of the radioactive desert sand. Venomous yellow eyes. The black gunmetal glint of Uzis as they close in for the kill. There's nowhere to run, and nothing to rely on but your MAC 17 machine gun. What a way to save the human race.

The year is 2087, eighty-nine years after an all out nuclear war between the United States and the Soviet Union turned vast swaths of the Earth into a hellish wasteland where survival is a daily struggle against thirst, hunger, radiation sickness, ravaging raiders, and mutants - always mutants. You are a Desert Ranger, one of a band of stalwart lawmen born from the remnants of a U.S. Army detachment who survived the nuclear holocaust by holing up in a maximum security prison. You may wear ragtag uniforms and carry make-shift weapons, but the Desert Rangers are the only law left in what was once the American southwest.

Now something more secretive and sinister than the usual roving bands of mutants and raiders is menacing humanity, and it's your job to investigate. Recruit the help you need, follow any leads you find, but beware. The wasteland is lawless desert and a lonely place, and the choices you make will shape the world around you. Better choose wisely. Your life depends on it.

A blast from the past that I’ve been waiting for for quite some time!

I cannot say how many times I have wanted to go back and play the Wasteland that I played on the C64 so many years ago. I enjoyed Fallout, which scratched that itch, but there is something about that old top-down Wasteland that can never be replaced. I was overjoyed to find this app this week, and the price point was great. I am looking forward to Wasteland 2 releasing soon! I hope it has the same style of play.

One of the best games in the history of gaming.

I have played this over the last 25 years multiple times and it is still good to this day. A historic and one of the top games of all time. If you have never played this, you have to have this under your belt. My favorite games of all time are Wasteland, Fallout Series, Star Control 1 and 2. If you have similar tastes as those, you won’t regret this download. Wasteland 2 is coming, play this one first. Get the original story.

This game does the Job

Neither Fallout 1 or 2 are available on Mac, so this game is the next best thing. 5/5 for old school apocalyptic wasteland gameplay
