InstantAction leaves beta
Having only launched a beta Mac version of the technology in October, GarageGames' InstantAction online gaming service is now in final release for both Mac and Windows systems. Visitors to the site are able to play games through their web browser, with the key difference that while most game portals are dedicated to single-player Flash puzzles, InstantAction provides full-fledged 3D action titles, several of which are multiplayer.
All games are said to be free to play, and include titles such as Rokkit Ball, Marble Blast Online, and the Tribes-like Fallen Empire: Legions. Leaving the beta stage is said to have improved the service in several regards, mainly in terms of expanded hardware support, faster loading times and more stable connections. Gamers can also play titles through both Safari and Firefox on a Mac, though Safari 4 compatibility is not known. All games require at least an Intel Mac running Mac OS X 10.4.11 or better.
