    dos Retribution

    Version

    0 downloads

    The plot: as the name implies, fight to avenge the fallen of your race that have been ?harvested? by the evil Krellans (no relation to Star Fleet games). Cutscenes and digitized speech both add to the atmosphere, but unfortunately the plot doesn?t get better than the very simplistic kill-the-aliens premise. Between missions, you can wander around in the base talking to different characters (who look remarkably similar to pilots in Wing Commander 1), who often have tips or info on the backstory. The writing is sub-par, however, making these ?interactive scenes? little more than a waste of space. The good news is that true to Gremlin?s reputation as developer of some of the best in-game 3D graphics, the 3D landscapes in Retribution are very smooth and detailed, with good gouraud-shading effects similar to NovaLogic games. Gremlin touted their technology as ?logi-scape real time landscape generating technology incorporating new "Deep Horizon' format,? and the results are great to look at. Retribution is a very challenging game that gets very hard very fast. With eleven major campaigns, each with 4 highly strategic missions, and 8 training missions to enhance performance, Retribution will keep the most expert of pilots occupied for some time. Recommended, but only for veteran gamers who are looking for a furious space combat game without the need for an engaging plot.

    dos Jungle Strike

    Version

    0 downloads

    In Jungle Strike you're mainly controlling the prototype helicopter "Comanche". In some missions, you can also use a hovercraft, a motorbike, or a F117 fighter. The controls in this shoot-em up are very easy and straightforward. As in most arcade shooters, you must collect new ammo, armor and fuel while fighting land, sea, and air-based enemies. In a nod to hard-core flight sims, all missions contain several sub-objectives, which have to be fulfilled in a given order. Most missions are set in either a jungle or city area. With a good combination of arcade and sim elements, Jungle Strike is highly recommended for fans of the genre. If you like Safari's games (e.g. Seek & Destroy) but wish they were more sim-oriented in terms of having mission objectives and depletable fuel, Desert Strike is the answer.

    dos Desert Strike - Return to the Gulf

    Version

    0 downloads

    An isometric-view heli-shooter, not bad at all - just leave out the idiotic story. That banal premise has probably been played to death by the many follow-ups, without adding anything to the game. Despite cliche premise (part of the war effort in the Gulf, yada yada yada), the game is a lot of fun. Your helicopter has various weapons and a winch, which can be used to pickup ammo, fuel, armor, and even POW's. Missions range from rescue to seek and destroy, and the game switches objectives often enough that it never becomes boring. The maps are huge, and full of interesting power-ups, secrets, and various ground-based enemies. You can blow up most things, including buildings, and the graphics are superior to most games at the time. Overall, a great game for all fans of shooters which might even appeal to flight sim gamers. The successor Jungle Strike is also available at this site.

    dos The Orion Conspiracy

    Version

    0 downloads

    Divide by Zero’s third adventure release is an uneven space opera that has interesting puzzles and plot– marred by a huge amount of gratuitous violence and prafanity that may turn many players off. Played in the third person through an extremely linear path, Orion’s plot revolves around your character’s investigation of the death of his son at a research station in deep space. Other, more farfetched (or derivative) plot elements come into play later in the game. Much of the backstory is provided in a nifty little graphic novel packaged with the game, entitled “Devlin’s Story”. Other information, as well as comprehensive installation notes, are included in a well-presented game manual. Even with these aids, however, it was difficult to free up enough low DOS memory to run the game with sound card support. Orion does not identify how much free memory it requires, so there may be some trial and error in fine-tuning the game for best operation. To allow the game to run in less conventional memory, several command-line switches are suggested, which apparently display the screens at a slightly-lower resolution and offer automatic (but slow) scrolling at the screen edges. The point-and-click user interface performs satisfactorily, with hotspots identified on the screen and possible object interactions displayed with the right mouse button. This “giveaway” of information on how you can act upon objects may make the game puzzles rather predictable and easy. On the other hand, you may find yourself spending the majority of gameplay merely moving your character from one station destination to another – often a very time-consuming process since no “zip” mode or shortcuts have been provided and access points seem arbitrarily restricted from each other. We’ll suspend our disbelief about the amount of gravity on a 10-acre asteroid.

    dos Simcity

    Version

    0 downloads

    In 1990, Maxis made the first and legendary Simcity, a city construction simulator. Starting in 1900, no buildings exists and you have to create road, create industrial and residential zones, school, police stations and much more to make you city grow. Sometime you have to face natural disasters like a twister or a flood. In the free mode no goal is set, so the victory or the defeat does not exist. You may also play a scenario where you have a limited number of year to change the city. Several problems exist : high criminality, traffic jams, nuclear disaster or very high unemployment. The game was a big it and a lot of Sim games followed later on, though the second opus, sim city 2000, is seen as one of the best.

    dos Cosmic Spacehead

    Version

    0 downloads

    Cosmic Spacehead is a decent arcade adventure drawn in the illustration style of the 1950s (TV's The Jetsons comes to mind). Bright graphics, a simple point-and-click interface for the adventure elements, interspursed with enjoyable arcade romps will keep players' attention as they explore, with Cosmic, the alien landscapes. The plot is wacky enough: to obtain a hero's welcome and much-needed cash, alien Cosmic must return to Earth and photograph the previously unexplored planet to document his visit. Cosmic Spacehead is an intriguing mix of adventure and arcade action gameplay. The majority of gameplay is an interactive arcade adventure which takes Cosmic across the many bizarre locations of his three main stops on the way to Earth: planet Linoleum, Detroitica a vehicle factory on a lone asteroid, and a space station. Each destination is divided into many smaller play areas where Cosmic can interact with other characters, manipulate and use objects to further his quest. True to Codemasters' expertise as makers of fun action games, Cosmic Spacehead includes many action sequences: traveling between the adventure play areas involves the successful completion of a wide variety of 32 arcade-orientated action games, ranging from astro-car racing, robot attacks, to asteroid fields and many more. Unfortunately, the adventure portion isn't as good: the solutions to most puzzles are all too obvious, and often require items that you can only get by random luck-- definitely not a good game design. This flaw limits Cosmic Spacehead's appeal only to action fans who are interested to try out the adventure genre, or adventure fans who like a lot of action in their games. Die-hard action and adventure fans should look elsewhere for their fill.

    D-Fend Reloaded

    Version 1.4.4

    4 downloads

    Running DOS games has never been easier... D-Fend Reloaded is a graphical environment for DOSBox. DOSBox emulates a complete computer including the DOS commandline and allows to run nearly all old DOS based games on modern hardware with any of the newer Windows versions. With DOSBox there is no need to worry about memory managers or free conventional RAM, but the setup of DOSBox is still a bit complicated. The configuration of DOSBox via textbased setup files might be difficult for beginners. D-Fend Reloaded may help and create these files for you. Additionally the D-Fend Reloaded installation package contains DOSBox (including all lanuage files currently available), so there is only one installation to be run and no need to link D-Fend Reloaded with DOSBox manually. Easy start: The D-Fend Reloaded installer provides everything you need to run old DOS games (D-Fend Reloaded GUI, DOSBox, language files, FreeDos commandline tools). During the first start of D-Fend Reloaded everything is set up automatically. [More...] Searching and sorting games: D-Fend Reloaded contains many service tools to keep the overview even in large game archives. Games can be filtered by categories like genre and year of publication, you can also conduct find-as-you-type searches. For every game you can setup a data folder for manuals etc. [More...] Creating new profiles: Besides using the normal profile editor, new profiles may be added by the profile wizard. Additionally templates for different game types are integrated which need only the name and the path of the game as input. [More...] Managing profiles: D-Fend Reloaded collects all information regarding a certain program in its profile (program directory, screenshot directory, manual directory, icon file etc.). Therefore complete games may be deinstalled using D-Fend Reloaded and games can be copied from one installation to another. D-Fend Reloaded is also able to build installer packes to transfer games to other computers. (To use this feature you need NSIS.) Additionally complete games can be packed to zip and 7z files by the builtin zip support for archiving or transfering. [More...] Language support: DOSBox and D-Fend Reloaded are multilingual. The installer package contains all currently available language files. D-Fend Reloaded automatically sets up the DOSBox keyboard layout which refers to the language choosen for D-Fend Reloaded. [More...] Compability: D-Fend Reloaded can read D-Fend and DBFrondend config files. D-Fend Reloaded is completely compatible with Windows Vista (in particular it runs without admin rights). [More...] More highlights: Games can be installed from zip files without any configuration.. D-Fend Reloaded may be installed in a portable operation mode (for USB-Sticks etc.). Besides DOSBox you can also use ScummVM as emulator. Also Windows-based games can be managed in D-Fend Reloaded. With the integrated Bochs-FAT-Image-Creator you may create floppy and harddisk images to be used with DOSBox directly from the D-Fend Reloaded GUI. D-Fend Reloaded can create images from CDs and floppy disks which can be used as drives in DOSBox.

    Alien Incident

    Version

    0 downloads

    Alien Incident is a fun, unassuming science fiction adventure that is great for young adventurers due to its family-oriented plot and easy puzzles. You play the role of a teenager called Benjamin who's visiting his uncle's house at Halloween. His uncle, a home-grown scientist, attempts to activate his latest invention, the wormhole spawner. Amazingly enough, it works and rips open a wormhole to another galaxy, transporting an alien spacecraft to Earth. The aliens kidnap your uncle and, surprisingly, your mission is to rescue him (and the world, but you knew that already). Strategy Plus sums up the game's appeal quite nicely as follows: "GameTek's Alien Incident must have been developed with the fledgling gamer in mind, and in that sense seems to be going in the right direction. Along with its clever animation and interesting storyline, it reinforces to the new or younger gamer the idea that fun, challenging gameplay doesn't have to include violence.... The tone of the game is well established very early and nicely maintained throughout. You cannot hope to rescue your uncle and thwart the plans of the aliens without some obstacles, so there is, of course, the usual gathering and intelligent deployment of assorted objects for puzzle. On the down side, Alien Incident seems to crash and lock up every now and then. But even when this happens, the game has an automatic recovery system. For instance, if the game crashes for whatever reason, the next time you start the game you'll find it has performed a "disaster save," and asks if you want to start where you left off. Seems like they may have been expecting a crash or two, eh? Parents will want to add this game to their shopping lists, as the story is fun and easy to follow and the interface intuitive enough to pick up with little or no coaching. Recommended primarily as family fare, this non-violent diversion should prove entertaining to Mom and Pop, as well as Billy and Sue Ellen… assuming they can withstand the occasional technical problems."

    James Bond: The Stealth Affair

    Version 1.0

    0 downloads

    James Bond: The Stealth Affair is a fun spy adventure that was originally released in Europe as Operation Stealth in Europe without the James Bond license-- a fact that explains why the game's plot doesn't follow any Bond story. That doesn't mean that the original plot here is bad, though. In fact, it is intriguing enough to be a Bond movie material: a top-secret stealth fighter has been stolen from a US base, so it's up to you to track down its location and bring it back. Of course, the fate of the whole world rest on your weary shoulders... The Stealth Affair uses a competent interface where you construct sentences from a small list of verbs such as "USE," "TALK," etc., although it is a bit confusing: "USE" and "OPERATE" are used slightly differently although they are synonyms, for example. Puzzles are fun and are neither too hard nor too easy; and since most of them involve using cool spy gadgets such as a passport falsifier, fans of spy novels will have a great time with the game. With an interesting plot, fun puzzles, and great graphics (upgraded to VGA in this US release), The Stealth Affair is highly recommended for every adventure gamer. Too bad that James Bond license Interplay paid for didn't seem to help the game's sales... although it becomes an amusing gaffe in the game: James Bond apparently had enough of Q and decided to work for the CIA instead.

    Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade

    Version

    0 downloads

    When LucasArts (then LucasFilm Games) released an adventure game based on blockbuster movie Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade in 1989, an action game based on the same movie was concurrently released, but never racked up as much sales or recognition as its adventuring brethren. This failure (by Lucas' standards) isn't so surprising, however, when fans get over the initial excitement and start to scrutinize the game behind the hit license. This game may be fun for a while, but soon the fun of watching Indy use his trademark whip wears off, and fans are left with a marginally above-average platform game where each new level looks suspiciously like the last. A very frustrating difficulty level also means that only diehard Indy fans will be compelled to finish this one. DOSBox This requires the DOSBox emulator. You can get it here.

Released in 1994, you wander around in a isometric, bird's-eye view perspective. The first game of the X-COM series, UFO was well received but suffers from its uneven graphics and the heavy menus. The game takes loads of hours to be enjoyed! If you are having problems running the game then check out this page. X-Com 2 A must-have for any strategy and wargame lovers, Terror from the deep is quite similar to UFO, but have more various sceneries, is more complexity and a bigger longevity. This X-COM got more plans, more guns, bewitching music and formidable AI (too much sometime). Some bad points: interception phases can be laborious sometime, the game interface is still messy and the game is not in S-VGA! Tons of time is necessary to play it, beware!

    Terminator: Future Shock

    Version

    0 downloads

    To make a video game that continues the tradition of the hard-hitting, multi-million dollar Terminator movie series, you have to combine engaging action with mind-altering special effects, gratuitous violence, and a solid storyline. Bethesda Softworks successfully pulls together all of these elements and spits a few more in your face in Terminator: Future Shock[, the fourth game in its line of action games based on the hit movie. Future Shock, as with earlier Terminator titles from Bethesda, is a great 3D shooter that combines three types of action: walking, driving, and flying, all of which are a lot of fun to play. The 3D engine has been vastly improved from the impressive but buggy one used in Terminator: Rampage. The post-apocalyptic world you explore is filled with fires, half-buried cars, and incredibly detailed robotic enemies, including the dreaded Terminators. The game world itself is well thought-out: you can enter nearly every building to search for weapons, ammo, and med canisters as the familiar adrenaline-pumping Terminator soundtrack echoes in the background. Your arsenal range from Uzis, plasma rifles, and grenades to the trusty shotgun. The graphics, music, and sound effects are superb. You can hear Raptors (one of the most prevalent types of robot) sneaking up in packs behind you. The creepy image of a Spiderbot prancing your way should be enough to shake up even a veteran action fan. Looks aside, the real beauty of Terminator: Future Shock is its smooth control system. Using a keyboard/mouse combination, you move quickly and aim accurately as you navigate through Los Angeles. In the driving and flying modes, you're even able to travel in one direction and shoot in another, a feature that comes in very handy when you're running away.

    Terminator: Rampage

    Version

    0 downloads

    Terminator: Rampage is the third game in Bethesda's "The Terminator" (tm) series, in which you must travel to the past in order to protect the future. The plot is standard post-apocalyptic mumbo-jumbo: it's the year 2029 in Los Angeles. They thought the holocaust had ended when the Orbital Platform was destroyed. They were wrong. SkyNET launched a Doomsday Plan. You must destroy the Machines before they terminate Mankind. The game is based on the engine used in earlier Terminator 2029, but with obvious graphics enhancements. Despite more impressive graphics, however, the gameplay is somewhat inferior to the first 2 Terminator games from Bethesda due to numerous bugs and boring level design. The game feels rushed and unfinished-- as if Bethesda was scrambling to meet a publishing deadline. This is unfortunate, as the game has a good potential to be a great game once kinks in the engine and all bugs are ironed out. DOSBox This game requires DOSBox emulator. Get it here

    Descent 2

    Version

    0 downloads

    As Descent 2 opens with a well-produced cinematic sequence, you take on the role of a bounty hunter who assumed his job was finished, until he learns it’s time for active duty again, or he can kiss his paycheck goodbye. Warped into the Zeta Aquilae System, it’s time for even more intense mine action across 5 different planets and over 24 levels of metal-sheering action. The five worlds include themes such as fire and ice, along with the alien mothership where the game ends. All of the levels are housed below the surface in mineshafts, one aspect I was hoping the design team would expand upon for the sequel. If there was the ability to fly outside on the planet’s surface, similar to Terminal Velocity, it would have added even more variety to the game, but the dev team decided to better the array of weapons and enemies faced within this sequel. As it stands, the control still takes some getting used to, but fans of the original should be happy to hear that they can simply install the game and play, as the interface is unchanged from the original. With cramped corridors and shallow pathways, there’s no question that players will sometimes get lost among a sea of vibrant textured walls. Thank goodness the fine men at Parallax decided to implement a 3D wireframe map of each level.

    Descent 3

    Version

    0 downloads

    The action opens as the Material Defender (that’s you) is about to meet a fiery death as his ship plunges toward a star. You’re suddenly extracted and brought to the Red Acropolis Research Center for treatment. Here you learn that a big shot in the PTMC (the interplanetary mining corporation you worked for) named Dravis has been working with the alien virus that sent the mining robots haywire in the first two Descent games. But Dravis hasn’t been working on a way to nullify the virus; instead, his experiments have led to a nano-technology that can re-program those ‘bots to kill every human in sight. Putting an end to this scheme will take you through the game’s 15 diverse missions. Instead of being confined to underground mines and corridors as seen in the previous Descent games, you now explore huge, sprawling installations. You will even travel outside to take out base defenses and find entrances to key areas. Sure, you still get to travel down the occasional mine shaft, but you’ll almost always find yourself back in an industrial setting guarded by some of the most wicked robots ever devised for a computer game. Whether flying down a darkened subway tunnel or skimming along the craggy surface of a moon, the sensation of “being there” was almost overwhelming – especially since your ship is dwarfed by the size of some of these structures. But Descent 3 is first and foremost a game of combat, and Outrage pulled out all the stops to make this one of the wildest, most gratifying shoot-’em-ups. You can tell the designers like to see stuff blow up, because every explosion and detonation results in near-psychedelic clouds of smoke and flame followed by showers of debris. Blast a robot with your laser, and before he’s blown apart, you can see sparks from short-circuiting wires dance wildly around his frame; fire your microwave cannon at an object (like a generator), and it wobbles and distorts wildly before it finally detonates. Ten new weapons have been added to your arsenal, each with special capabilities and boasting some hot graphical effects. Standouts among the new primaries are the Microwave Cannon, which fires two streams of deadly concentric rings, the auto- targeting EMD Cannon, firing a stream of electrical charges, and the one-shot Mass Driver Cannon, delivering a Herculean punch from long range (thanks to a sniper-style Zoom feature). For heavy-duty destruction, you’ll love secondary weapons like the shrapnel-filled Frag Missile, the flame-spewing Napalm Missile, the mighty Impact Mortar, and the Black Shark Missile, which is kind of a mini-nuke that toasts any ship or defensive turret touched by its blue-and-white mushroom cloud.

    Descent 1

    Version

    0 downloads

    With a full 360 degree freedom of movement, Descent really does have its own gaming style that traditional 2.5D games like Doom or its many lookalikes simply can’t match. You can fly in any direction you point your fighter to, hover freely where you stop, or fly backwards if you ever have to retreat. The action is purely arcade, so you won’t have any of that angular momentum nonsense keeping you from having a good time. The plot is pretty simple but gets hammered home nonetheless. The robotic crew of space mines have gone haywire it seems, and it’s up to you to get in, blast everything, set the mines to self-destruct by damaging its cores and escape to the surface of the planet before a counter hits zero. The armaments you carry for this purpose are pretty cool, with five different primary weapons, four missile types and a rear-mounted bomb dropper. As in any shooter, you find weapon upgrades and ammo spread throughout each of Descent’s 27 levels. The robot enemies aren’t near as twisted as Doom’s demonic hellspawn, but they put up a serious fight nonetheless. All of them are rendered in true 3D as polygonal objects, and all of them have the same freedom of movement as your craft. This means that they will shoot at you from all angles, which makes it ever so important to examine your surroundings when entering new areas. And if the singleplayer portion was a good ride, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find the multiplayer is even better. Descent supports network play (up to 8 players), modem head-to-head and Co-Op, and none of these game modes require a dedicated server – you simply jump into a hosted game and play, without even needing to leave the game for a special IPX connection program (everything is done from the main menu). This is a cool thing since many games before had to have players connect, start and leave simultaneously.

    Chasm: The Rift

    Version

    0 downloads

    This game’s essentially a run-and-gun action frenzy through several thematically-distinct worlds, where you blast aliens, fetch key card, open doors, then blast some more aliens. Some nonsense about time travel and inter-dimensional monsters offers the perfect excuse for these sudden changes of scenery, and the variety is almost well worth going through. You start off within an industrial setting that’s somewhat reminiscent to Quake, then move to Egypt, then to Medieval Europe, then to a sci-fi world. All of these locations have their own gamut of thematic monsters and weapons, and each setting features an end boss. All of the monsters, items and weapons are poly-based, texture-mapped 3D models, making Chasm one of the better looking non-3D accelerated games available at the time (albeit bearing a very familiar dark-brown color palette). The characters, in particular, look good enough for close-up briefing sequences (complete with lip synchronization… sort of). Enemies come in various shapes and sizes. The initial blend of industrial and sci-fi levels will have you face predictable gun-totting robots and jetpacking sentries. Later Egyptian and medieval themes will have undead zombies, axe-wielding executioners, vikings and many other assorted mutants gracing the screen, their tally numbering fifteen types in total.

    Blood

    Playing the role of a resurrected gunslinger out for revenge, Blood successfully copies what made Duke Nukem 3D great and places the action in a sort of hellish version of the world, one ruled by dark gods, insane cultists, vicious demons and loinclothed loons who fling their arms in panic. Other than the poor loinclothed guys who always get caught in a crossfire, Blood throws in everything from pesky rats and spiders to giant stone gargoyles, with a great many drawn from famous works of horror. Most common among them are axe-wielding George Romero-style Zombies and machingun-totting cultists that spout insane babble. The trigger-happy Cultists will cause the most trouble, as their lightning-quick reflexes and sharp aim make them awfully challenging to kill. Other enemies up for spillage is the Bloated Butcher, Phantasm (a spooky ghost with a scythe), Hell Hound and four different boss characters. Blood’s most novel enemy is the disembodied hand that chokes the life out of you. Pressing ‘Use’ repeatedly will force it off. You can even here the hand utter ‘I’ll swallow your soul‘ (Evil Dead). There’s not a whole lot of innovation here except for the almost negligible alternate firing modes. Each weapon has a secondary attack that delivers a heavier blow but costs more in terms of ammunition and accuracy. The double-barreled shotgun, for instance, can fire both barrels instead of just one, and the Tommy Gun can spray lead sideways for a fast horizontal sweep. The Aerosol Can fires continuously but can also be turned into a makeshift Molotov Cocktail and thrown into a busy crowd of zombies for a good undead roasting. Gameplay

    Last Action Hero

    Version

    Developer Psygnosis Limited Publisher Psygnosis Limited Release 1994 A fun but easy action game based on the Disney movie of the same name, Last Action Hero follows the movie's plot closely as an all-brawns-but-no-brains hero you must rescue the kids from the clutches of the town's gangsters. Gameplay is divided between a fun top-down car chasing sequence, and a disappointingly bad side-scrolling arcade portion when you barge into the warehouse to find the kids. It's an okay game that should be played only for the first part.
