Anne Loucks has created some programs which may be useful or fun:

Retroizer

  • This program can be used to downgrade graphics. It might seem a little odd, but I built it to help me figure out if I liked a game for its gameplay or its graphics, and you can use it for that very purpose. Alternately, you can use it to remember your old macintosh.

  • This program is free and has been released as freeware, since nobody would ever pay to make their own games worse.
