UPDATE: Don’t bother using Cheat Engine, this is an incomplete program. Check out Bit Slicer!
Believe it or not, there is actually a cheat engine for the Intel MacOS systems! Personally I didn’t know till I read through the front page.
If you try searching for a mac cheat engine, you will find an older version on other download sites and ports on sourceforge, which do not work on the current MacOS operating systems.
This version cannot find pointers or browse memory and is not completely finished. If you want a better memory hacking program, please use BitSlicer. If you are looking for some cheats for BitSlicer, check out our community forums!
