I still remember my first glipse into A-10 Attack! when I saw it being demo'd at the Mac Expo in London in '94, they had a Quadra 840AV with 3 monitors running along with Thrustmaster joysticks and a custom frame which everything sat on top of.

The guys at Parsoft had big plans, they wanted to make it networkable and for people to be able to buy extra vehicles, land, sea and air. It was a shame that it never really went anywhere after.. I'm pretty sure A-10 Attack! Cuba was just a purchasable demo showing off the capability of porting it to PPC..

Anyway I was an avid Hellcats over the Pacific pilot, using my Wacom tablet and keyboard to fly at the time. Parsoft ran a competition called Hellcats over Kings Cross in London, I attended and came 2nd (I would have come first, but couldn't find my aircraft carrier to land back in time).. Anyway I won a full set of Thrustmaster HOTAS and A-10 Attack! (I had to pay the import duty on the game however when they sent it to me). Many an hour playing on a Quadra 950 and 16in screen!

And now we have Eagle Dynamics to thank for their version on PC, DCS!

I can confirm that this can work on older windows operating systems. Try 95, 98, or XP. I have not tried it on Windows 7 yet. I played the demo of this when I was a kid.

Hey guys. I played the HECK outta A-10 Attack! I remember receiving a demo of some sort of A-10 Cuba, and graphically... I was in love. The problem is that I could never seem to get it to run properly on the mac I had at the time. Thinking back, I can't be sure why, I mean I was a kid. I didn't pay much attention to the techy stuff.

Now that I'm older, I really want to (finally) play this game. Like, the "I'd be willing to freaking track down old equipment just so I can enjoy this game again" type of dedication.

So that said, what exactly would I need? I MAY have access to a laptop that's running OS9. And I'm sure I can find a compatible joystick on Ebay.

Truly a shining example of the flatshade polygonal master, Eric Parker's, art!

Loved this flight sim. Had the flight controllers too, including rudder pedals.

The original A10 was Mac only although this one (Cuba) was released through Activision as a Win PC game. Search around the web / forums and you will probably get a free download now.

I have just re-vamped my original Mac G4 400 AGP (in 2015!) and installed a clean OS9 to play this game, Unreal and the classic Close Combat war simulation - now CC is a great Macintosh game even now and available on this website, but you will need OS 9 installed and it wont run on Intel Macs.

I remember A10 coming out whilst I was at design college. It was the game you had to get for the new Power Macs although we only ever managed to get the demo passed the IT staff, so we played the same missions over endlessly :). Apple had just released updated Macs and (typically) the developer Parsoft didn't co-ordinate well (they later went bust) - so this game was actually for the previous range of lower capability Macs - Doh! Parsoft delayed release for 12 months and ported it over to the new Mac (they should have been aware of ?) but of course this didn't update the graphics or potential functions that the new Mac could have offered the game. Still it was notable for being a decent game in the Mac game wilderness and having the ability to edit missions (new). The planning / map mode also added to the depth of the game experience rather than the arcade 'shoot everything you see' approach of many earlier games (which actually were cheap arcade ports). The campaigns / maps / mission time were large enough to amble about in so if you felt like it, you could go back to your own base, post mission, and wait for a helicopter to take off (then shoot it - ha! ha!). Landing and taking off were also skills to be vaunted to your student colleagues - they were not that easy to do well.
