  • Sort of.

    AppleWorks Classic from 1984 to 1991 is for the old Apple II computer.

    AppleWorks GS from 1988 to 1996 is for the Apple II GS computer.

    AppleWorks for Macintosh requires a PowerPC processor. (Snow Leopard only runs on an Intel processor.) But Snow Leopard comes with Rosetta, that will allow software for the PowerPC processor to run on an Intel processor. Rosetta is not installed by default when Snow Leopard is installed. It is an option during installation and supposedly can also be installed through Apple Software Update. You may be able to install Rosetta via the Snow Leopard install disk.

    OS 10.7 and later will not run PowerPC software such as AppleWorks.

    The replacement for AppleWorks for OS 10.7 and later was iWorks.
