Hi Nicholas,

If you haven't already found them, we have some basic tutorial videos linked here.  It sounds like you might want to start with the "Install a known application from disc or installer file" tutorial and see if the game you are trying to run is already in our database -- it will show up when you start typing in the installation window if it is.  If not, you can use this tutorial instead.  

If the game installer is inside of a zipped file, you can try double-clicking on the zip file in the Mac Finder to unzip it.  Depending on the file type, you might need a separate program to unzip the files.

I hope this points you in the right direction.
