There are no plans to make a Mac version of NeoLemmix (or any other non-Windows platform), but it may be possible to run it on Intel Macs via WINE.

It's not going to happen. Firstly, because I don't have a recent Mac to build and test on. Secondly, because the current focus is on wrapping up NL, and a major feature like cross-platform support is far beyond what I'd look into adding at this point.

Note though that this is specific to NL, and does not apply to Loap (my other major Lemmings project), which should already be possible to build on (and for) Mac, though I still don't have the means to test this at present.

Your best bet if you want to play NL on Mac is to look up an app called WINE. It's kind of like a Windows emulator - do be aware it'll only work on Intel Macs, not M1 Macs. Many people have been able to play NL on Linux using this, it should work on Mac too.
