OS X Mountain Lion also brings on iTunes Game Center

For those of you looking to upgrade to OS X Mountain Lion today, you'll be glad to know that not only do you have a vast collection of updates to your Mac, you've got an app store based update as well: Game Center. Though you'll be able to connect to your friends and associates with the in-game version of Game Center in more of a social networking way, you've also got an app store section now titled Game Center as well. This is Apple's first real push for a gaming machine in the Mac.

After you have a peek at our OS X Mountain Lion full review, you'll want to grab that update for yourself and follow up by heading to the Game Center. In this new section of the app store you'll find a collection of just seven games for starters. These seven games represent a rather interesting cross-section of genres and gameplay, but what's most important about all of them are their cross-platform abilities.

Every single one of the games in the Game Center for Mac right now also works with iPad, iPhone, and iPod touch. With these games you'll be able to play with your friends and associates via the Game Center functionality they also all work with in-app.

Anomaly Warzone Eath

Mancala FS5

Sky Gamblers: Air Supremacy

Real Racing 2


Cut the Rope


Each of these titles are available for between $3.99 and $12.99, each of them able to be played on whatever Apple device you've got, more or less. We recommend Osmos first and foremost – it's been essentially the same game for more than two years now, and it's still very much one of our favorites – grab it!
