MAC compatibility question

I don't know anything about MACs, so I was wondering, if a game says that it requires "System 6.07 or above", can you install and use this game in current OS X systems? Will there by any compatibility issues?

Usually if a game supports OS X the boxes requirements will be noted on it. If you still don't know just google the game or look it up on http://www.versiontracker.com. The game could run in classic on OS X if your machine supports it (i.e. non Intel based) but the experience sucks.

Looks like System 6.07 was released in October 1990. From what I understand of Macs, very few programs work well (or at all) with an OS upgrade. How old/what is this game?

Thanks for the replies. It is Leisure Suit Larry 5.

Yeah Leisure Suit Larry 5 definitely doesn't have a OS X version. It 'should' run under classic, if your machine supports it.
