Green Hell (Mac)

Green Hell on Mac

Green Hell is a single-player action-adventure game that throws you headfirst into the harsh, unknown Amazon rainforest. You play as Jake Higgins, a linguist who wakes up on the shore of the Amazon river, and your mission is to stay alive and make your way through the unending, hostile jungle, gradually revealing how you got there. To survive, you’ll need to put your skills to use and protect yourself from predators, diseases, and other constant threats that are hiding in the forest.

Gameplay

The gameplay includes authentic survival methods such as starting a fire, creating tools and weapons, hunting, gathering supplies, laying traps, fighting wild animals, and building yourself a shelter. It also emphasizes taking care of your emotional and physical health by doing things in order to keep your mood up, tend your wounds, and heal from tropical diseases. A “body inspection” game mode lets the player treat their character’s ailments and improve their overall health.

Psychological Thriller Elements

Green Hell highlights the psychological challenges of enduring harsh environments. Players who manage to keep Jake alive over the prolonged periods of isolation in the jungle find themselves in situations where they must face his deepest emotions and make harsh decisions to make it through to the next day. They not only have to avoid physical dangers in the jungle but also the traps laid by Jake’s mind and the anxieties that he faces throughout the game, which put his mental health to the test but also help him reveal a secret.

Visuals and sound

The environment is presented in a variety of colors and sounds that immerse the player in the jungle. The game impresses with the detail with which the flora and fauna (including mammals, reptiles, birds, and insects) are portrayed. The recreation of animal behavior and sounds is similar to what you would see and hear in the wild, and the ever-shifting weather makes the gameplay very realistic.

Verdict

Green Hell is a survival simulator that lets players experience the challenges and dangers of the Amazon jungle and the effects of the dynamically changing environment on their psyche by mixing survival and thriller elements in a compelling game.

Green Hell can be played on Mac. But Green Hell cannot be played on a Mac directly because the game has no official Mac OS version. However, there are several workarounds that can allow players to play Green Hell on their Macs and you will learn more about them in the next lines.

A very easy and quick solution to playing games that are not supported for macOS on a Mac is to stream them in your browser with cloud gaming services like Boosteroid or GeForce Now.

Another solution that can give you a relatively good gaming experience is to install Windows on your Mac with the help of programs like Parallels or Boot Camp Assistant and download the Windows version of Green Hell on your Mac with Steam.

Hopefully, these solutions would give you a gaming experience as close as possible to the experience of playing the Green Hell Windows PC version on your Mac.
