Sorry, Tropix and Tropix 2 are currently supported on Windows only. We love Macs and hope to provide games for that platform in the future.
In Tropix 2, you can simply create a new user profile (click "switch user" from the main menu).
In Tropix, however, there is no in-game way to start over - you'll have to erase your saved game files to make that happen. Find the "user" folder wherever Tropix is installed (for example, C:\Program Files\Tropix\user) and delete the contents of the "user" folder only. That is, keep the empty user folder there, but delete the files inside it. This will restart your game.
Right-click your Windows desktop, select "Properties", and click the "Screen Saver" tab. Here you can enable or disable the Tropix or Tropix 2 screen savers.
You can find Tropix t-shirts and other cool gear in our online shop.
